Admission bid
by Iranians
turned back
A bid by the five stranded Iranian
architecture students from the University of Idaho to be admitted to the
University of British Columbia was rejected Tuesday by the admissions
committee of the UBC Senate.
The five are Mashalah Jalalian,
Shahab Kasmai-Tehran, Bizhan
Basirat, Mohammad Ghaffari and
Marjan Sassanfar.
Prof. Robert Smith, chairman of
the UBC Senate admissions committee, said that in denying the appeal,
the committee was unwilling to consider the applicants as a bloc.
The five Iranians entered Canada
on April 6 as part of a group of 100
students from the University of Idaho,
on an architectural field trip. While
they were in Vancouver, President
Carter announced changes in the
policy toward Iranian nationals with
respect to entry to the United States,

ton students visited the campus Museum of Anthropology, above, toured several
UBC academic departments, swam at UBC's Aquatic Centre and saw a play at a
theatre on Granville Island during their stay in Vancouver. For more details on
the UBC accessibility project, see story on page 2.

UBC gets
The Association of University and
College Employees (AUCE), Local 1,
served 72-hour strike notice on the
University Tuesday, following rejection by the union membership of a
University contract proposal.
A union spokesperson said an
overflow crowd of about 700 attended
a noon-hour meeting in IRC 2 on
Tuesday to discuss the UBC offer,
which was rejected by a 90-per-cent
vote on a show of hands. A motion to
vote via secret ballot on the offer was
The union represents more than
1,200 clerical and non-professional
library workers at UBC.
The University offer, placed before
the AUCE negotiating committee on
Monday, called for a one-year contract from April 1, 1980, with a
general wage increase of 10 per cent.
In addition, there would be incremental increases totalling .88 per cent, an
extended health benefit payment
equalling .05 per cent, and a once-
only $100 signing bonus for each
AUCE member. The union has asked
for 15 per cent in a one-year contract.
The UBC offer would have given
AUCE salaries ranging from $1,032 a
month to $1,795. (See table on page
The union spokesperson said the
strike against selected areas of the
University could begin as early as 3:40
p.m. Friday. She said the membership
had left it up to the strike committee
to decide when the strike would start
and against what buildings it would be
Details on
Asian fund
The details of a $500,000 fund for
UBC's Asian studies program will be
announced in Vancouver May 6 when
the city is visited by Japanese Prime
Minister Masayoshi Ohira, who left
Japan today (April 30) for a week-long
visit to North America and Mexico.
The announcement that Prime
Minister Ohira would offer the fund to
UBC over a three-year period was
made on the eve of his departure on a
tour that will take him to the United
States, Mexico and Canada for talks
aimed at improving bilateral
economic and political relations.
Although details on the use of the
fund remain to be finalized, President
Douglas T. Kenny said that the gift
was "most generous and underlines
the reputation which UBC enjoys as a
Pacific Rim university.
"We welcome this initiative by the
government of Japan, and coming as
it does with completion of our Asian
Centre in view, indicates the high level
of interest among our Pacific
neighbors in the overall UBC Asian
studies program," the president said.
A detailed announcement regarding the UBC fund will be made at a
dinner in Vancouver's Hyatt Regency
Hotel on May 6. It will be jointly
hosted by Prime Minister Ohira and
Canadian Prime Minister Pierre
The Japanese prime minister will
leave Vancouver for Tokyo on May 7.
Work on Stage II of UBC's Asian
Centre adjacent to the Nitobe
Memorial Garden in the northwest
section of the campus is expected to be
complete in October.
The centre will house UBC's
Department of Asian Studies, the Institute for Asian Research and the
University's 250,000-volume Asian
Studies Library, currently housed in
the Main Library. UBCreports

UBC's new parkade opens for business May 15
UBC's first multi-storey parkade capable of
handling 1,130 cars will open for business May 15.
Until that date, faculty and staff employed in the
Health Sciences Centre, including the Woodward
Library and the Library Processing Centre, will
have priority in purchasing stickers entitling them
to uk the building.
Any rental spaces remaining on and after May 15
will be sold on a Erst-come, first-served basis to
other faculty and staff tacmbett.
The annual cost of renting a parking spot in the
new parkade will be f 128, payable in two instalments of $64 each, Traffic and security director
Al Hutchinson said parkade rates are significantly
below those charged for similar space in downtown
Vancouver lots and similar to those charged for
covered parking at other Vancouver hospitals.
UBCs vice-president for administrative services,
Chuck Connaghan, told UBC Reports that rising
demand for faculty and staff parking on the northern sector of the campus will probably mean construction of a second parkade in that area in the
near future with a similar parking-fee structure.
Holders of parking stickers for the Health Sciences Centre parkade will get something of a financial break in 1980-81. Their stickers will be valid
from May 15 to Aug. 31, 1981.
Those who buy space in the parkade will get a
special sticker for their car as well as a specially-
punched "key" card that will automatically lift a
barrier when inserted in a machine at the entrance.
The parkade stickers will also be valid for other
campus faculty and staff lots.
Visitors using the parkade for casual parking will
get a ticket from a "spitter" machine at the entrance and will pay when they leave. Casual parking rates are 75 cents for the first two hours and 25
cents for each additional hour up to a maximum of
Hutchinson stated that the present temporary
parking areas in the southeast section of campus
will revert back to grass areas or roadways. The
status of the existing surface parking is under review by the Traffic and Parking Committee, he
said. ;
The parkade exit will be manned from 7 a.m. to
9 p.m. throughout the week. Overnight parking
will also be available between 9 p.m. and 7 a.m. for
a fee of 75 cents, which users will deposit in ticket
machines at the parkade entrance.
Senate approves statement on exam availability
Senate at its April 23 meeting approved a Calendar statement that
gives students the right of access to
marked final examination papers, to
take effect with the 1980-81 school
The statement replaces item six of
the current "Rules governing formal
examinations" on page 16 of the 1980-
81 Calendar, and reads as follows:
"A final examination becomes the
property of the University and must
remain in the possession of the University until destroyed or otherwise disposed of. No later than one month
from receipt of end of session results a
student may make written application
to the Department Head, Director or
Dean, who will make every effort to
arrange for the student to view her or
his marked final examination paper(s)
with the course instructor or designate. The purpose of this exercise is
purely pedagogic and distinct from
the Review of Assigned Standing."
•    *    •
Senate also approved the restructuring of the Faculty of Education into university departments, in
line with one of the recommendations
of the President's Review Committee
Report on the faculty which was completed a year ago.
Following is a list of the new departments, as presented to Senate by the
1. A department comprising the present Departments of Educational
Psychology and Special Education,
to be called The Department of Educational Psychology and Special
2. A department comprising the present Departments of Educational
Foundations and Social Studies Education, to be called The Department of Social and Educational
3. A department comprising the present Departments of English Education, Reading Education and Modern Languages Education, to be
called The Department of Language Education.
4. A department comprising the present Departments of Mathematics
Education and Science Education,
to be called The Department of
Mathematics and Science Education.
5. A department comprising the present Departments of Art Education
and Music Education, to be called
The Department of Visual and Performing Arts in Education.
6. A department comprising the Centre for the Study of Curriculum and
Instruction, and the present Departments of Communications
Media and Technology, School Librarianship, Early Childhood Education, Home Economics Education, Business Education and Industrial Education, to be called The
Department of Curriculum and Instructional Studies.
7. A department comprising the present Department of Counselling Psychology, to be called The Department of Counselling Psychology.
In the same motion, Senate approved the faculty's proposal that:
"The School of Physical Education
and Recreation will function in part,
and under arrangements still to be
worked out, as a department of the
Faculty and the present Department
of Physical Education (Teacher Preparation) will be amalgamated with it.
"For the time being, the existing
Departments of Adult Education,
Higher Education and Educational
Administration will be affiliated in a
unit that will have quasi-departmental
status within the Faculty.
"The above names may be subject
to revision when regular, as opposed
to Acting, Heads are appointed."
In the Faculty of Commerce and
Business Administration the words
"Dean's Honour List" will be placed
on a student's transcript if an average
of 80 per cent or better has been
achieved in the program of an academic year of at least 12 units in the
first year or 15 units in second, third
or fourth years.
In addition, the words "with Honours" will be put on the transcript, degree certificate and degree parchment
of students graduating with the B.
Com. degree if the student's average
over the 36.0 units of the third and
fourth years is 80 per cent or better.
This recommendation by the commerce and business administration
faculty was approved by Senate at its
April meeting.
*    *    *
Also approved by Senate was the
Calendar entry and first-year course
listing for a revised four-year program
leading to the Bachelor of Recreation
Education degree.
In its rationale for the changes,
which include the deletion of three
units of physical education courses
and the addition of 4.5 units of "leisure studies" courses, the School of
Physical Education and Recreation
said the new curriculum is intended to
provide a professional education for
recreation students, with the emphasis
on theory and research.
Coal unit bids to be opened May 8
A new laboratory centre for coal
and mineral processing — the only
such facility in Canada — will be built
at UBC this year.
Construction bids on the project
will be opened May 8, and an end-of-
year completion date is anticipated for
the three-storey, 20,000-square-foot
The new laboratory will meet the
needs of teaching and research in coal
preparation and mineral processing,
Access project launched
UBC's accessibility project,
launched last year to improve communication between the University
and B.C. high schools, is now well
launched, according to Dick Shirran,
director of the campus Student
Counselling and Resources Centre.
In addition to an expanded information program, the accessibility project includes a pilot project to be carried out in five B.C. high schools with
the aim of determining why some
students elect to enrol at university,
while others do not.
The project began last summer
wheji counsellors, principals and
parents from the five pilot-project
schools met UBC officials on campus
for a workshop to discuss the factors
restricting accessibility to higher
education and steps that could be
taken to limit their influence.
As a result of the discussions, it was
decided to give priority to awarding
$750 bursaries to seven students from
the pilot-project schools, improving
the quality and amount of information about UBC in all high schools, including more information about
employment and careers arising from
university training, and the initiation
of visits to the University for grade 10
students from each of the pilot-project
Over the winter, UBC's admissions
guide, published by the Registrar's
Office, was upgraded and a new
publication entitled "Info UBC" has
been prepared for distribution to B.C.
high schools and colleges.
The latter publication, which will
be available to potential students in
counselling offices, includes a copy of
the UBC Calendar as well as a description in non-technical language of
study opportunities in each of the
University's faculties, departments,
schools and institutes.
The Info UBC material is contained
in a large looseleaf binder, which will
be updated from time to time with
new material about UBC.
Also available to high schools and
colleges are a general film about
university life, entitled "A University
is...", produced in the past year by the
Department of Information Services,
and videotapes on specific programs,
including forestry, agriculture and
mining engineering.
Now in the planning stage is a conference for all high school and
regional college counsellors, which
will be held sometime in the coming
year, Mr. Shirran said.
The five-year accessibility program
will cost an estimated $159,000. In addition, the University will add
$250,000 over the next five years to
UBC bursary funds, bringing to
$450,000 the amount available annually to aid low-income students or
to supplement financial awards made
by the B.C. Student Assistance Program of the provincial government.
and will also be available for cooperative research with the Canadian
mineral industry.
Prof. George Poling, head of the
Department of Mining and Mineral
Processing Engineering at UBC, said
coal is becoming an increasingly important source of energy and hydrocarbon chemicals, and that traditional uses of western Canadian coal for
making coke are also expanding rapidly.
"Preparation plants are necessary
since coal cannot be utilized directly
as it comes out of a mine," Dr. Poling
said. "Impurities such as mineral matter and water must be removed to utilize our coal resources efficiently and
with a minimal environmental impact."
Dr. Poling said his department
graduates about 10 engineers a year,
and he would like to see this number
rise to at least 20, possibly 30.
"Establishment of this new centre
will give our students a third option,
that of coal preparation engineering,"
he said, "to go with mining engineering and mineral process engineering,
and it will provide better facilities for
students in mineral processing."
Dr. Poling said candidates for a
Bachelor of Applied Science degree in
mining and mineral processing spend
three years in the department, after a
year of science and a year of general
"Coal preparation and mineral processing are both crucially important to
B.C. and to Canada," Dr. Poling said,
"and the jobs are there for the graduates. Coal and mineral processing engineers from UBC will serve the mining industry and society better because
of this new facility."
The new centre will be located just
off the southwest corner of the Forward Building for metallurgy and
mining on the campus. UBCreports
Health Service to move
The Student Health Service will
move to more modern quarters on the
main floor of the new Walter Koerner
Acute Care Unit during the first two
weeks in June.
Present facilities in the west wing of
the Wesbrook Building will be vacated
by the health service May 31 although
emergency services will be provided
there until the new facility is opened
June 16.
Student Health Service provides
outpatient health services for students,
including any problem a family doctor
would deal with. This includes
counselling; and help with such problems as headaches and injuries. In
addition to medical and nursing care
and investigation of any health problems arising in students, the health
service also provides various immunization procedures.
The new quarters will allow more
privacy for students in the reception
area, noted Nursing Supervisor
Kathleen Boyle, because there is more
space available.
Furnishings at the student waiting
area in the new unit are being pro-
New film ready
for screening
A 20-minute, 16mm film, "A
University Is...", produced by UBC
Information Services, is now available
for free screenings to groups, schools,
professional organizations and other
public audiences.
The film, which was shot on the
UBC campus over the past year, explains the traditional role of a university and shows how the functions of
teaching, research and service are carried out by professors and students.
"The film's message, not its locale,
is what is important," said Brant
Ducey, director of Information Services. "We feel its approach is universal and that it could be used by other
universities. We hope that it will prove
popular with off-campus audience*
such as clubs, libraries, professional
groups, alumni and schools, particularly at the high-school level."
The film is available on campus
from Information Services and from
the Space and Audio-Visual Services
library. Arrangements are being made
for off-campus distribution through a
film distribution agency.

Roads close
UBC's Traffic and Security
Department announced late
Tuesday the closure of 16th
Avenue from East Mall to the
16th Avenue Extension; and the
16th Avenue Extension from
Marine Drive to West Mall for
the month of May.
Traffic and security director
Al Hutchinson said the provincial highways department informed the department late Tuesday of the closure, which takes effect today (April 30) until approximately May 30.
The closure is part of a construction program to straighten
and improve 16th Avenue and
Marine Drive.
New logo*
now available
A new visual identification mark or
"logo" has been approved by UBC Administration for use in employment
advertising and brochures and booklets directed to the public.
The logo is made up of the letters
UBC and the traditional UBC crest
surrounded by bold lines in the outline
of a shield.
Use of the letters UBC ensures clear
and instant recognition by viewers,
while the crest maintains established
University tradition.
Visual symbols should be memorable, recognizable and appropriate,
and should serve to give a familiar
continuity to printed materials destined for the general public.
The symbol does not preclude the
traditional uses of the University's
crest. Rather it offers another option
for visual identification, particularly
when printed material may be competing with other materials for the
reader's attention.
Faculties or departments interested
in using the logo can obtain the necessary artwork from Gary Taylor of
Copy and Duplicating.
Information Services can provide
guidelines and suggestions for the use
of the symbol.
Those faculties or departments
wishing to use the symbol in display
advertising should have their advertising placed through the Department of
Employee Relations.
