Conference Centre attracts steady stream of visitors

conference i-ason at UBC. May and

.•■\lthough   July   is   often   a   quiet
ionth   for   conferences,   August   is
traditionally a very busy month, according to John Burns, manager of the
UBC Conference Centre. The
residences will be almost completely
full in that month. And that's good
news for students who stay in the
residences in the winter, because the
money made through turning the
UBC residences into a conference
centre during the summer offsets
some of the costs of residence living
for students.
Toward the end of July, the Potato
Association of America has chosen
UBC as the site of their annual conference. About 500 people will be attending the meetings, hosted by
Agriculture Canada's Vancouver
research station situated on the UBC
campus. They'll be talking about
research going on in potato growing,

Librarian
doubles as
painter
It seems, to the outsider, a
somewhat Jekyll and Hyde existence.
By day. Suzanne Dodson is head of
the UBC library's government publications and microforms division. By
night, weekend, or any other time she
can spare, she is a top-notch painter
specializing in true representations of
B.C.'s wildflowers.
Her work makes up part of the exhibition now in the Museum of Anthropology on campus, Plantae Oc-
cidentalis. a display of botanical art in
B.C. from the past 200 years. And
she's just won both a first and second
prize in a competition sponsored by
the Botany Graduate Students at
UBC. The results of that competition
are gracing the walls of the Biological
Sciences Building all summer.
For Mrs. Dodson. the interest in
these seemingly opposite areas began
years ago. Even when she was an
undergraduate student at UBC, she
did her coursework in English and
zoology. That was followed several
years later by two years in UBC's
library school. She had spent her
share of summers in art schools while
growing up, and eventually found the
time to practise her art during a stint as
camp cook for her husband's geology
field crew.
"Once I'd done my chores I could
wander off into the woods," she explained.
It's not so easy now, however, for
her to come across wildflowers to
paint. She's painted most of the common flowers found in the Lower
Mainland, and many on Vancouver
Island. She feels she needs to spend
some time in the Cariboo, Kootenays
or even the Yukon.
Painting wildflowers is not as idyllic
a pastime as it would sound. It's not
simply sitting on a little stool in the
middle of a field of flowers, paintbrush
in hand while the sun streams down
over your shoulder. Because the
result must be true to nature to be
classed as botanical art and not just a
"pretty picture," Suzanne Dodson
carefully arranges her subjects indoors
and works at a drafting table, drawing
the plant in pencil first, then outlining
it, erasing the pencil and filling in with
watercolor. Very fine brushes and a
very steady hand are essential ingredients for this art.
"I have to paint from live plants,"
she said. "Some people paint from
photographs, but I don't see how they
can get the detail that's necessary for
this kind of work. And it's not work
that you can leave and come back to
when you feel like it. The plant won't
last for very long."
Suzanne Dodson
She has a large collection of books
on wildflowers which she uses to help
her identify what she finds in the
woods and although she makes no
claim to be a botanist, her knowledge
of plants, their latin names and
families, is extensive. "Painting really
does increase your awareness of
things. I'm sure it's the same with people who know about birds and trees.
You realize there's a lot going on that
you haven't really been aware of
before."
Suzanne Dodson's painting is not
just an interesting hobby. She's done
work for the Provincial Museum in
Victoria and the Hunt Botanical
Library in Pittsburgh, and several of
her paintings have been commissioned as gifts. Her next major project
is to complete a book illustrating B C.
wildflowers which would be published
with color plates But that's a very expensive undertaking for a publisher,
and she has yet to find one with the
money to take on the project So far,
she's completed 127 paintings for the
book
Painting is not Mrs. Dodson's only
outside interest. Last summer she
completed a reference book called
Microform Research Collections. A
Guide, and with the royalties from the
sale of that book, she bought a harp
This summer's project is learning to
play the instrument. And she and her
husband have a garden of their own.
"It's not entirely a wildflower garden
and, I must confess, my husband does
most of the work on it," she added.
including soils,  storage  and  fertilization.
About 800 people will be attending
a conference on high energy physics
and nuclear structure from August 12
to 18, with about 400 of those people
staying on campus in the residences.
The 43rd International Congress of
Americanists. August 11 to 17. is expected to draw more than 1.000 people to meetings on campus. The congress, this ye.ir jointly organized by
Simon Fraser University and the
University of B.C., has only met in
Canada once before, at the turn of the
century. About 750 papers will be
presented by people from North. Central. Latin and South America in a
wide range of areas including archeology, linguistics, art history, anthropology, political science and other
humanities. Many of the sessions are
open to the public, and people interested in obtaining more information
should call the congress office at

Speedier delivery is aim of campus mail director
«»»!
Sid Potter is looking for a way to
speed up the delivery of mail on campus, and if all goes well with his
negotiations with the Canada Post Office, we'll have faster service on campus in the fall.
Mr. Potter, who is in charge of the
campus mail department as part of his
duties as director of the UBC purchasing department, has been working
with representatives of Canada Post to
make more use of the downtown post
office's mechanical sorting equipment
which sorts first-class mail automatically according to the postal code it carries.
If UBC had 50 or 60 postal codes,
one for every major department, instead of just the one code it has now.
then most of the mail would already
be sorted by the time it was delivered
to the campus mail room by Canada
Post. "All we'd have to do then is put
it on the truck and deliver it around
the campus," Mr. Potter said. "As it
stands now there are departments
here who don't get their mail till
maybe noon."
The people in the campus mail
room in the basement of the General
Services Administration Building
begin sorting mail at 6:30 a.m. each
morning. About 12,000 to 14,000
first-class letters are delivered to the
mail room by Canada Post each day,
along with about 500 registered letters
and a truckioad of third-class mail. By
8:30 a.m. the mail truck has begun its
daily rounds of delivering to individual
departments, although sorting may
continue until  10:30 or 11-00 => m
Mail sorter Matt Kavanagh works his way through thousands of letters a day
Delivery has to start whether sorting
has been completed or not, in order to
get around to all departments.
"However, if we could get 60 per
cent of the first-class mail being
machine-sorted downtown, then we
would be able to cut our own sorting
time by two hours a man each day,
and we're looking at an average staff
of 10 men," Mr. Potter figured.
That 20 hours a day saved in sort-

New head appointed
for architecture school
Douglas Shadbolt, a Victoria-born
architect who was a student at the
University of British Columbia more
than 30 years ago, has been appointed director of the School of Architecture at UBC, effective Jan. 1,
1980.
He succeeds Robert MacLeod, who
left UBC in March to take a position in
Britain.
Shadbolt, 54, has taught and
worked in many parts of Canada and
the United States since leaving B.C. in
1955 to teach and study at the University of Oregon. He was at Oregon for
two years, teaching graphics and
design while completing his Bachelor
of Architecture degree.
He comes to UBC from Carleton
University in Ottawa, where he started
a school of architecture in 1968 and
served as director for nine years. He is
still a professor at Carleton, teaching
architectural design.
Prof. Shadbolt also started the
school of architecture at the Nova
Scotia Technical College in Halifax, in
1961. and was director there for
seven years.
He has also taught at McGill University and the Vancouver School of Art.
As an architect. Prof. Shadbolt has
worked on designs for many projects,
including an award-winning housing
project, pavilions for Expo '67, a
library in Massachusetts, and a
hospital research wing in Boston.
He says the most significant
development in architecture in recent
years has been the increased consideration given to the requirements of
the user, who may not be the client.
The client may be interested in externa! appearance, but the people who
will live or work inside a building have
different concerns.
The architect, says Prof. Shadbolt,
may find himself as the person in the
middle,   needing   the   talents   of   a
Douglas Shadbolt
diplomat    as   well    as   those   of   a
designer.
The new UBC director's older
brother, artist Jack Shadbolt, received
an honorary degree from UBC in
1978.
Prof. Abraham Rogatnick has been
named to serve as chairman of the
Master of Architecture program in
UBC's School of Architecture in
1979-80 when he returns from sabbatical leave in mid-July. Dino
Rapanos, who has been chairman of
the program in 1978-79, will continue
to assist Prof. Rogatnick with the
graduate program and continue to
have responsibility in a research project involving several graduate
students. Prof. Rogatnick will also
teach architectural history in the
Bachelor of Architecture degree program.
then go toward speeding up sorting of
interdepartmental mail, which Mr.
Potter said is increasing in volume as
the University grows larger and larger.
Mr. Potter hopes that Canada Post
will agree to assign separate postal
codes to faculties or departments
which receive more than 100 first-
class letters each day. About 60 per
cent of the departments on campus
would qualify for their own postal
codes on that basis
Conferences
Continued from p. 1
In mid-August, UBC's athletic
facilities are bringing a couple of major
groups to the campus. Fields are being
readied now for the Women's International Field Hockey Tournament,
which will bring 850 top-notch
athletes to the campus from August 16
to 30.
The people who organize the National Wheelchair Games enjoyed the
experience they had at UBC in 1973
so much that they're repeating it, according to the administrator of the
Canadian Wheel Chair Sports
Association, Art Balcom. "It's not only
the accessibility of the fields, the pool,
and the War Memorial Gym at UBC,"
he explained, "but the willingness of
the people out there to accommodate
350 people in wheelchairs." The
athletes will be competing in pen-
tathalon events, snooker, table tennis,
archery, bowling, volleyball, basketball and swimming events. The Canadian Wheel Chair Sports Association
has donated $17,000 towards improving accessibility for wheelchairs to
the Gage Residence and the War
Memorial Gym. About 400 people are
expected to be on campus for the
games from August 18 to 25.
As well as these major conferences,
small groups will be coming and going
throughout July and August. There's
a cheerleading camp for high school
students scheduled for August. The
Medicine Hat Police Band will be staying at Gage. A group of Japanese
teachers will be here to look at early
childhood education problems and to
meet with people in UBC's early
childhood education program. And a
large number of Japanese students
will be housed in the Totem Park
Residence while they take English
language training.
At the end of August, John Burns
and his Conference Centre staff pack
up   their   belongings   at   the   Gage
Once arrangements with Canada
Post have been finalized, the next problem would be to get people both on
and off campus to use the new codes.
"If we get these postal codes,
representatives from Canada Post and
the campus mail will go to each
department to explain the system. We
will also make it mandatory that each
department has its own postal code on
its letterhead," he said.
Residence and move back into the
Housing Office in the Ponderosa
Building. There they'll spend the fall
and winter drumming up business for
future summers, sometimes four and
five years down the road.

take two top
CBC awards
Two UBC music students have
taken top awards in the 20th CBC
Talent Competition.
Winner of the voice section and co-
winner of first prize over-all was
Langley-born tenor Ben Heppner,
and winner of the piano section was
David Swan. Both have just received
Bachelor of Music degrees, with Swan
heading the graduating class in Music.
A record 239 young musicians
entered this year's CBC competition,
with 10 of them making it to the finals
in Quebec City in the five categories
— voice, piano, wind instruments,
strings, and classical guitar. Chief adjudicator was French conductor and
composer Marius Constant.
Eugene Wilson, acting head of the
music department during the summer
absence of Dr. Wallace Berry, said the
achievements of Heppner and Swan
were a tribute to themselves and to
their teachers at UBC.
Heppner, who entered UBC as a
music student in 1974, was a student
of Prof. French Tickner. He was a
member of the UBC Choral Union,
the UBC Chamber Singers and the
professional Vancouver Chamber
Choir.
David Swan began his piano studies
at the age of 7 in Saskatoon and gave
his first solo recital two years later. He
was a CBC Talent Competition finalist
in 1975, and he studied at UBC under
Robert Silverman. UBCreports

Jessie Field, who joined the ranks of UBC s employed staff in 1937, retired at
the end of June after 42 years of continuous service on the campus. From 1937
to 1952 she worked in the office of the dean of Agriculture and then transferred
to the Faculty of Arts and Science, where she served until 1975 as secretary to
the Department of Classics and department head Prof. Malcolm McGregor.
Professional, supervisory staff
get new evaluation program
Professional and supervisory staff
on campus have been the subject for
the past eight months of an in-depth
study to look at how their positions
and salaries are evaluated. Now that
the study has been completed,
members of the so-called "P & S" staff
have been meeting in small groups
with Employee Relations to discuss
the results.
The eight group sessions held so far
have yielded some interesting comments and concerns, according to Bob
Grant, director of UBC's Employee
Relations department. He hopes to
form an advisory group from among
the approximately 400 P & S people
to discuss in detail aspects of the new
program and to refine the program
further.
"What we're presenting," he said,
"is the beginning of a program for a
salary administration policy. It's an attempt to respond to the concerns of
this particular group, the professional
and supervisory people."
Positions at the professional and
supervisory level have been divided by
this study into different job families,
according to the work done. Salary
levels were then determined on the
basis of going rates for comparable
work at other universities and in the
private sector where relevant.
Assisting Employee Relations in setting up the program was the consulting firm of Towers, Perrin, Forster
and Crosby, who had set up similar
programs at the University of Toronto
and the Ontario Institute for Studies in
Education.
Although the program has been approved by the University administration, and job families and salary levels
have been assigned for each member
of the P & S staff, Mr. Grant said
aspects of the program are subject to
review. "It isn't a take it or leave it type
of program," he said. "In fact, that
review process has already begun."
A review or appeals committee has
been established, made up of eight
senior academic and administrative
staff, none of whom is in the P & S
category at the University. They've
already begun hearing appeals from
staff members who disagree with the
job family, level or salary range they
were assigned.
"The system now isn't as cumbersome as it was before. There's no
question now of going through a
review committee and then an appeals
committee. Appeals now go straight to
the appeals committee," Mr. Grant
explained. He said the committee is
meeting about once a week now to
hear appeals and when the initial rush
has died down, they'll meet whenever
necessary.
Some changes in classification and
salary ranges have been made without
the staff member going through the
appeal process. An "inequity fund"
was approved last July for this purpose.
Employee Relations plans to
publish a salary administration manual
to be distributed to all departments
along with a general brochure on how
the new system works which will be
given to all P & S staff. The brochure
will also be part of an induction
package for new employees at the P &
S level.
Bentley to be
Acting Dean
Dr. Roy Bentley, who joined UBC's
Faculty of Education in 1970, has
been named Acting Dean of that faculty.
The one-year appointment, approved Tuesday by the Board of
Governors, runs to June 30, 1980.
Dr. Bentley takes over from Dr.
John Andrews, dean since 1973. Dr.
Andrews will remain with the faculty
as a professor.
Dr. Bentley has B.A. and M.A.
degrees from the University of Toronto and a doctorate from Memorial
University, Newfoundland.
He had extensive experience as a
teacher and administrator in the public
school system before coming to UBC
nine years ago. Dr. Bentley has written for, and served as editor of, a
number of scholarly educational journals and has been a writer and
moderator on CBC and BBC radio
programs.
B.C.'s Open Learning Institute has
announced that planning has been
completed for OLI university degree
programs in arts and science.
The institute was established in
June, 1978, by provincial legislation
to develop and deliver courses for •
home study for B.C. residents in
university, adult basic education, and
career, technical and vocational areas
of study.
OLI planners are aiming first at
students in the B.C. Interior and on
Vancouver Island who have begun
studies at community colleges. The institute's schedule calls for three pilot
courses to be initiated on a limited-
enrolment basis in September.
There will be a course in beginning
psychology, a third-year economics
course acquired from Athabasca
University in Edmonton, and a senior
English course on the Victorian novel,
which is a British Open University
course adapted for B.C. by the
University of Victoria.
Meanwhile, OLI course writers are
in the process of preparing a further
15 courses that are slated to be
available by January, 1980, according
to OLI university programs director
Dr. Ian Mugridge.
Most of OLI's university courses are
designed to be completed in a four-
month semester and will carry a credit
of three semester hours. Some of the
senior courses will have six semester
hours credit and can be completed in
two semesters.
Dr. Mugridge said students who do
their whole degree program with the
OLI and who choose a B.A. in, say,
ecofiomics and history, will be required    to    undertake   at   least    10
courses in each of these subjects, with
four courses in years one and two and
six or seven courses in years three and
four.
"This means," he said, "that the
OLI degree will offer less opportunity
for specialization than would be possible at one of B.C.'s universities. We
simply cannot offer 300 to 400
undergraduate courses as the residential universities are able to do. We feel,
however, that there is genuine merit in
a more generalized degree pattern instead of the specialized programs
which are characteristic of modern
university programs."
OLI's eventual target is to develop a
series of 90 to 100 courses over a five-
year span. Programs will be offered in
biology, history, computing science,
mathematics, economics, psychology,
English, sociology and geography.
Dr. Mugridge said the OLI had been
in "active contact" with B.C. universities throughout the planning stage
and that "everything necessary to ensure full university recognition will be
done."
He added that OLI courses and
levels of student achievement would
be submitted for external assessment
"in accordance with well-established
academic practice in Canada and
elsewhere."
B.C. adults who want to complete
high school through courses offered
by the Open Learning Institute will
also be given that chance come
September. Four secondary school
courses will be offered which will give
successful students the equivalent of
grade 10. Course to give students the
equivalent of grade 12 will be offered
next January.
Pushing off for this month's Pan American games in Puerto Rico are the four
members of Canada's straight 4 rowing team, including three University of
B.C. students. The team members are (left to right) third-year UBC Arts student Brad Hankinson, third-year SFU student Morris Hutchins, UBC Commerce student John Gjervan, and third-year UBC Chemistry student David
Dunnison. After competing in the Pan Am games, the four will go on to the
World Rowing Championships in Yugoslavia. UBCalendar

Mr. Duncan has been commissioned by Information Services at UBC to make the film, which will try to
show what a university is and what it does. The filmmaker will visit the campus frequently during the summer
months and will complete the shooting in the fall and winter when winter session students are back on campus.
More than 50 locations will be used in making the film, including an operating theatre, residence
cafeterias, a farm and a music workshop, to show the wide range of activities which make up the University's
teaching, research and public service commitments.
The film will be completed early in 1980 and is intended for general distribution as well as use by University
groups, schools and community organizations.
