 Volume 29, Number 11
June 15, 1983
Touching moment during UBC's 1983 Congregation ceremony was the acceptance by
seven-year-old George Manuel, Jr., of the honorary Doctor of Laws degree conferred on
his father, a leading spokesman on behalf of native Indians for more than 40 years. Mr.
Manuel was unable to attend the ceremony because of illness. Escorting the young
Manuel off the Congregation platform is President Douglas Kenny, who was himself
honored on the final day of the three-day Congregation. Chancellor J. V. Clyne conferred
the honorary degree of Doctor of Laws on Dr. Kenny, who steps down as president of
UBC on June 30.
Parking fees rise slightly
Parking fees on the UBC campus will be
slightly higher in 1983-84 for faculty, staff
and business users and for students who
want space in preferred lots.
UBC's Board of Governors, which
approved the increases at its May meeting,
was told that the changes are consistent
with the practice of recovering the cost of
patrolling and maintaining campus parking
Here are the new parking rates (1982-83
rates in brackets): Faculty, staff or business
- $114 ($108); Music Building covered
parking - $186 ($180); preferred student ■
parking — $45 ($42); maximum per-day
charge in parkades and visitor lots — $3.50
Unchanged are annual rates for parking
in the Health Sciences Parkade ($132),
general B Lot decal ($12), and the hourly
rate charged in parkades, visitor lots and
parking meters (50 cents).
Long-service faculty
given opportunity
to reduce workload
UBC's Board of Governors has approved
a scheme which provides for the reduction
of a faculty member's workload and salary
while maintaining full pension and other
The scheme, which has the support of
UBC's Faculty Association, is available to
all members of the association bargaining
unit, including professional librarians and
program directors in the Centre for
Continuing Education.
To be eligible, bargaining-unit members
must have tenure, be at least 58 years old
in the year in which application for the
scheme is made, and have at least 15 years
continuous service at the University.
Under the scheme, a faculty member's
salary and workload may be reduced by as
much as 50 per cent, but even greater
reductions are possible in individual cases.
(The full text of the document approved
by the Board at its May meeting appears
on Page 3 of this edition of UBC Reports).
While faculty member's contributions to
pension and other benefit programs will be
based on the actual salary paid, the
University's contributions on behalf of the
faculty member to pension and other
benefit programs will be based on the
nominal or shadow salary, i.e., the salary
that would have been paid to the faculty
member had he continued in a full-time
Under the scheme, the faculty member's
actual salary, and the nominal or shadow
salary, will be increased annually in
accordance with the provisions of the
collective agreements between the
University and the Faculty Association.
The reduced-workload scheme has been
under development by the University
Administration since February, 1982.
Prof. Robert Smith, UBC's associate
vice-president academic, said similar
schemes are in operation in a number of
Canadian and U.S. universities.
He said there were a number of
advantages for the faculty member and the
University under such a scheme.
"One of the advantages for faculty
members," he said, "is to assist them in the
transition to retirement. A number of UBC
faculty members have expressed interest in
a plan along these lines."
From the point of view of the University,
he said, the reduced-workload scheme will
enable some flexibility to be introduced
into staffing and should mean ongoing
savings in the University's total salary bill.
Don Russell appointed
associate V-P academic
Prof. R. Doncaster Russell, associate
dean of the Faculty of Science and a
faculty member for 24 years, will become
UBC's associate vice-president academic on
July 1.
He will succeed Prof. R.H.T. Smith,
who moves up to become UBC's vice-
president academic on the same date.
Prof. Russell's appointment was
approved at the June meeting of the Board
of Governors on the recommendation of
Dr. K. George Pedersen, UBC's president-
In addition to a distinguished teaching
and research career, Prof. Russell has had
extensive experience in UBC's
administrative affairs as a member of both
the UBC Board of Governors (1978-81) and
the Senate (1967-68), as the first head of
the Department of Geophysics and
Astronomy (1968-1979), and as associate
dean of the Faculty of Science since 1980.
Prof. Russell is a graduate of the
University of Toronto, where he was
awarded the degrees of Bachelor and
Master of Arts and Doctor of Philosophy.
He taught at Toronto before joining the
UBC faculty in 1958 as an associate
professor of physics. He has been at UBC
continuously since that time, except for the
1962-63 academic year, when he returned
to Toronto as professor of physics.
Prof. Russell has served on an extensive
list of national and international bodies
associated with the earth sciences. He is the
author or co-author of some 100 scientific
papers, many of them related to his
research specialties, the age and early
evolution of the earth and geophysical
instrumentation. He was elected to
fellowship in the Royal Society of Canada,
this country's most prestigious academic
organization, in 1966.
He has also been active as a member of

Safety Corner
The following memo is from Geoffrey
Crampton of the President's Advisory
Committee on Safety, Security and Fire
In recent discussions with representatives
from the University Endowment Lands Fire
Department, obstructed corridors were
identified as a fire safety concern at UBC.
Over the past few years, corridors in
UBC buildings have been used for storing a
number of items, including refrigerators
and electrical appliances. These
obstructions not only restrict evacuation
routes, but can also be sources of fire.
Fire prevention officers who inspect UBC
buildings feel concrete action is necessary
on our part to comply with the Fire
Services Act, which requires that corridors
be kept free from obstructions.
We ask you to review the practices in
your area with regard to the use of
corridors and to take action to improve our
performance without formal instructions   ■
from the Fire Department.
Thank you for your assistance.
32 of 46 GREAT awards won
by grad students from UBC
Forty-six university students have
received awards worth $11,500 each in the
Science Council of British Columbia's 1983
GREAT program.
GREAT, which stands for Graduate
Research, Engineering And Technology,
was established to encourage post-graduate
students to conduct their* thesis research in
cooperation with an off-campus business, •
industry or organization. This is done so
that the students will gain practical
experience in the application of research as
they progress towards a master's or doctoral
degree. The hope is that their work may
help the off-campus firms to find solutions
to some of their scientific or technological
The students will be conducting research
in areas as diverse as forestry and medical
technology. Typical is the award to Neil
Cox, a student in the UBC Department of
Electrical Engineering. He'll be spending
part of his time at the Vancouver General
Hospital working on a research project
involving the use of automated detection
Thirty-two of this year's GREAT winners
attend the University of British Columbia.
Nine are at the University of Victoria and
five at Simon Fraaer University.
All British Columbia companies are
eligible to participate in the GREAT
program and so is every student in post
graduate studies at one of the three
provincial universities, provided the
students are Canadians or landed

including the Senior Appointments
Committee, and as a member of
committees in the Faculties of Science and
of Graduate Studies.
He has also been active in UBC's Faculty
Association as a member and chairman of
its salary and membership committees. He
served on the association executive as
treasurer in 1968-69.
Also approved by the Board on Dr.
Pedersen's recommendation:
The appointment of Allen Baxter,
associate vice-president and treasurer, as
acting vice-president, finance, from July 1;
Extension of the appointment of Dean
Peter Larkin as head of the Faculty of
Graduate Studies for one year from July 1.
World War, he returned to UBC to earn a
Master of Applied Science degree in
chemical engineering in 1946. He was
awarded the degree of Doctor of
Philosophy by the California Institute of
Technology in 1951.
Prof. Cavers taught for five years at the
University of Saskatchewan before joining
the UBC chemical engineering department
on a full-time basis in 1956.
In addition to his teaching and research,
Prof. Cavers took an active role in
University governance as a member of
Senate on two occasions and as a member
of a number of Faculty Association
committees. He was also an active member
of the Chemical Institute of Canada, which
elected him a fellow, and the Association
of Professional Engineers of B.C.
In his capacity as a researcher, Prof.
Cavers was the author or co-author of
nearly 50 papers in the fields of heat, mass
and momentum transfer, liquid diffusional
operations and the flotation of oxide
minerals. He also kept close track of UBC's
chemical engineering graduates and wrote
a number of papers on employment
prospects in the 1960's and 1970's.
Dr. Cavers is survived by his wife,
Geraldine, and four children. In lieu of
flowers at a June 1 memorial service,
friends and colleagues were asked to
contribute to the Stuart D. Cavers
Memorial Scholarship Fund.
Library space needs
seen as urgent
UBC's Board of Governors voted last
week to reaffirm the urgency of capital
projects submitted in June of last year to
the Universities Council of B.C.
As part of the same resolution, the
Board voted to "again call attention to the
special importance of developing the
library system of the province" as set out in
a 1981 proposal from UBC, and agreed to
add the space needs of the School of
Physical Education and Recreation and for
facilities for recreation and athletics to the
1984-89 capital development plan.
The motions passed by the Board of
Governors were virtually identical to
recommendations approved by UBC's
Senate when it considered a report from its
Academic Building Needs Committee in
Senate voted to reaffirm academic
building priorities established in 1981 and
asked that a plan to expand the UBC
library system be identified as "an urgent,
special need."
Senate also voted to add the School of
Physical Education and Recreation to. a list
of priorities drawn up in 1981. This list
recommended construction of new space
for chemistry/physics, agricultural
sciences/forestry, the clinical departments
of medicine, dentistry, chemical
engineering, biochemistry, physiology,
geophysics/astronomy and a studio
resources building for the Faculty of Arts.
The Senate Academic Building Needs
Committee also recommended that new
temporary/portable buildings be used on a
limited scale on campus in order to meet
"special and urgent needs for academic
The committee acknowledges that this
recommendation represents an important
change in policy because a previous

Elections soon
for Senate
and Board
UBC's Senate has set in motion the
machinery that will lead to triennial
elections to the Board of Governors and
Senate, the two main governing bodies of
the University.
The machinery approved by Senate at its
May meeting calls for the election of two
members of faculty and one non-faculty
full-time employee of the University to the
Board of Governors; the election of the
chancellor, who sits on both the Board and
Senate; and the election to Senate of
Convocation members, faculty
representatives, faculty members at large
and a representative of UBC's full-time
professional librarians.
Those elected to the Board of Governors
will take office on Feb. 1, 1984, and those
elected to Senate will take office on
Sept. 1, 1984. The chancellor will take
office on June 25, 1984, and the
installation ceremony will take place on
June 1, 1984, during UBC's annual spring

the position that no new "temporary"
structures should be located on campus
until considerable progress had been made
in removing or upgrading existing
temporary building and huts.
"However," the committee adds, "new
permanent academic space is only acquired
slowly at the best of times, and at the
present time its acquisition is almost at a
standstill. Hence the committee believes
that some provision should exist for the use
of temporary or portable buildings as the
only effective means of solving special and
acute space needs on a dynamic and
changing campus."

More than 5,500 academics from across
Canada registered with the Learned
Societies Conference held on campus from
May 29 to June 8, some 500 more than
As a result, the University is expected to
break even on the actual cost of the
conference, quite apart from income
received by Food Services and the
Conference Centre.
Classics professor James Russell, coordinator of the conference, said it might
be several months before final figures are
"But I'm hoping that we'll come out
more or less even," he said.
There were 68 separate organizations
holding meetings during the conference,
some with almost 500 delegates and others
with fewer than 20.
About.4,000 of the delegates stayed on
campus, for an average of four-nights,'~'*™**
giving the Conference Centre almost
16,000 bed nights at an average $22.
Another beneficiary was the Faculty
Club, which enjoyed a "tidal wave" of
additional business, manager Ed Puis said.
Mr. Puis said sales for the first week of
June were almost three times as high as for
the corresponding week of 1982.
He said the extra business could put the
club in the black for its fiscal year, which
ends June 30.
UBC car
fastest, but
finishes 5th
The UBC Paragon was easily the fastest
car in the recent Shell Fuelathon, but it
wasn't the most economical.
The University of Saskatchewan's No. 1
car placed first in the universities division,
averaging 1233 miles per hour.
UBC's Paragon, a creation of six
mechanical engineering students, averaged
677 mpg — in fifth place behind two
Saskatchewan cars, the University of
Sherbrooke and Ryerson Polytechnical
A professionally-designed vehicle entered
by Shell was the outright winner, averaging
1457 miles per hour.
Prof. Bob Evans of mechanical
engineering said the Paragon's 677 mpg
was only about half of the car's potential.
He expected UBC to enter again next year.
The cars had to average 25 kmh, and
Prof. Evans said the UBC vehicle was
much faster than that, which increased
fuel consumption.
All of the vehicles were fueled by

Report on University Act approved
A 52-page report from a six-member, ad
hoc committee of Senate on amendments
to the University Act was approved
virtually without debate at Senate's May
The committee, which began its work in
January, made 12 recommendations for
amendments to the act, the provincial
legislation which outlines the powers and
duties of the Board of Governors, the
Senate and senior university officials and
provides for the Universities Council of
Prof. M.A. Hickling of UBC's law
faculty, who chaired the committee, said
that no strong case had been made for a
radical alteration or restructuring of the
act. "The general impression seemed to be
that the structure was basically sound," he
told Senate.
Prof. Hickling said the committee felt
there were a number of matters on which
it had inadequate information to enable it
to make recommendations for change. ■
These included the operations of the
Universities Council and the relationship
between the University Act and the act
which provided for colleges and institutes.
He said the committee concurred with a
recommendation from the UBC Committee
of Deans that a study of the operations of
UCBC should be undertaken now that it
has been in existence for a decade.
In addition, he told Senate, the
committee is satisfied that a case can be
made for a full-scale review of the system
of post-secondary education in B.C. and
the relations between the various bodies
that have evolved.
The committee was unanimous in its
recommendations with one caveat relating
to the composition of student
representation on Senate, Prof. Hickling
said. He recalled that Senate had passed a
motion that had the effect of splitting
student representation between full and
part-time students without increasing the
Commerce gets new

A new Alumni Chair in Marketing has
been established within the Faculty of
Commerce and Business Administration.
UBC's Senate approved the new chair at
its May meeting after being told that an
anonymous donor had provided an
endowment for it and that individual
graduates had contributed smaller amounts
to complete the funding.
The objective of the gift is to help
support research in commerce and business

He said the student representative on the
ad hoc committee (Ms. Lisa Hebert) would
have preferred a recommendation that
provided that representatives of part-time
students should be in addition to the
existing student numbers. The committee
could not accept this, he added.
In the ensuing discussion, Senate
amended only one of the committee's
recommendations. It eliminated from
Recommendation 6 a suggestion that a fee
be charged in order that a person be
placed on a list of voters in University
Senate rejected a suggestion that the
recommendations made by the ad hoc
committee be considered one by one and
approved the committee's report in an
omnibus motion.
1. Purpose. The purpose of the scheme
is to provide for the reduction of a faculty
member's* salary and workload normally
by as much as 50 per cent (but with the
possibility of a greater reduction in
individual cases) while maintaining full
pension and other appropriate benefits
entitlement (group life, disability, medical
insurance, dental, etc.).
2. Eligibility. Where it is to the
advantage of the University and to the
faculty member, a reduced workload
appointment may be considered for faculty
members who hold appointments without
term, who are at least 58 years of age in
the year in which application is made, and
who have had at least 15 years continuous
full-time service at UBC.
3. Components, (a) The reduction in
responsibilities of the faculty member
normally will involve all three areas
proportionately (teaching, scholarly
activity, and service to the University and
the community), but with the precise
allocation to be approved by the president
on the recommendation of the dean after
discussion between the faculty member and
the head/director (dean), (b) The faculty
member's salary is reduced by the same
proportion as the reduction in the
appointment responsibility, (c) The faculty
member's contributions to pension and
other benefit programs are based on the
actual salary paid, (d) The University's
contributions on behalf of the faculty
member to pension and other benefit
programs are based on the faculty
member's nominal or shadow salary (the
salary that would have been paid to the
faculty member had he continued in a full-
time appointment). In addition, the
University contributes the difference
between the faculty member's contributions
on the actual salary and what the faculty
member would have contributed on the
nominal or shadow salary, (e) The faculty
member's actual salary, and the nominal or
shadow salary, will be increased annually
according to the provisions of the collective
agreements concluded with the Faculty
4. Term. Reduced workload
appointments concluded under the above
provisions shall continue to normal
retirement age.
5. Implementation, (a) The precise
terms of a reduced workload appointment
within the guidelines above, are to be the
subject of discussions with the head or
director and the dean, (b) All reduced
workload appointments are to be
recommended by the dean of the faculty,
and approved by the vice-president
academic and provost for recommendation
to the president and submission to the
Board of Governors.
"Here and elsewhere 'faculty member'
shall be read to include all members of the
bargaining unit and he/his to mean
she/hers where appropriate.
Ocean Studies
Council formed
UBC's Senate has approved the
formation of an Ocean Studies Council to
promote interdisciplinary research on the
oceans and to facilitate contacts between
UBC scholars and universities, government
bodies, international agencies and other
interested off-campus groups.
Dean Peter Larkin, head of the Faculty
of Graduate Studies, said the need for such
an organization had been made pressing by
the growth of research activities arising
from the impact of the third United
Nations Conference on the Law of the Sea
and the widespread extension of maritime
jurisdiction by states out to 200 miles from
their coasts.
The council will be made up of
representatives from a wide range of UBC
faculties and departments, including
Commerce, Forestry, Law, Economics,
Geography, Political Science, Asian
Research and International Relations.
While the council will have no role in
teaching or the development of curricula,
one of its main functions will be to develop
interdisciplinary faculty and graduate-
student seminars on ocean topics.
