jDr. Billy Graham began his Vancouver crusade Friday (Oct. 12) in UBC's War Memorial
Gym, where he spoke for more than half an hour to an audience of 3,500 students, faculty
and visitors to die campus. Throughout his talk, Dr. Graham wore a UBC sweater
emblazoned with the letters "B.C."presented to him by President George Pedersen during his
introduction of the evangelist. After speaking, Dr. Graham lingered in the gym signing
autographs and chatting with students.
California nursing teacher
to speak on medical ethics
A woman prisoner has been admitted to
your unit with severe malnutrition
because of a hunger strike. Her orders call
for her to be restrained and fed through a
nasogastric tube to save her life. She begs
hospital staff to consider her wishes rather
than force her to take food. What should
doctors, nurses and other health
professionals do in such situations? Are
there guidelines that can help them face
such ethical issues?
Dr. Anne Davis, an internationally
known and respected author, speaker, and
educator on nursing issues, will address
ethical issues in the health sciences as this
year's Marion Woodward Lecturer. This
annual public lecture, sponsored by the
School of Nursing, will be held at 8 p.m.
on Thursday, Oct 25, in Lecture Hall 2 of
the Woodward Instructional Resources
Dr. Davis teaches in the master's and
doctoral programs in the School of Nursing
at the University of California, San
Francisco. She is author of numerous
publications and co-author of two widely
acclaimed texts: Ethical Dilemmas and Nursing
Practice (1978) and Patients, Nurses and
Ethics (1981). She has held several
appointments as a visiting professor at
Canadian and U.S. universities.
In addition to her nursing activities, she
is sought as a consultant on many national
and international committees and as a
speaker at health and social sciences
conferences. She is currently a member of
the advisory council, U.S. National Institute
of Mental Health, and was recendy an
advisor for a conference sponsored by the
Friends of the Earth.
She received her basic baccalaureate
nursing education at Emory University in
Adanta and holds a master's degree from
Boston University and a doctorate from
the University of California, Berkeley. As
well, she has held post-doctoral fellowships
at Harvard and the University of Texas,
The annual Marion Woodward Lecture is
made possible through a special grant to
the School of Nursing from the Mr. and
Mrs. P.A. Woodward Foundation.
Government, industry
combine as UBC
gets 3 major grants
UBC has been awarded three major
grants totalling $1.2 million through the
University-Industry Program of the Natural
Sciences and Engineering Research
Council (NSERC).
The grants, announced last week in
Ottawa by NSERC president Gordon
MacNabb, are:
• An industrial research chair in forest
policy totalling $350,000 over five years in
the Faculty of Forestry;
•A cooperative research and development
grant of $633,400 over three years for the
establishment of a lead flash-smelting
research facility in the Department of
Metallurgical Engineering; and
• A cooperative research and development
grant of $246,490 over two years to
upgrade the computing facilities in the
Department of Oceanography.
To date, 21 firms or agencies have agreed
to participate in the three projects. Their
contributions total $680,500.
The University-Industry Program was
established by NSERC in January to
encourage collaboration between university
researchers and Canadian industries that
are prepared to make a reasonable
commitment to shared-cost ventures.
The program is geared towards joint
research and development activities of a
long-term nature with good potential for
graduate student training.
NSERC is Canada's largest research
granting agency, channelling close to $300
million each year into research and the
training of scientists and engineers. In
1983-84, NSERC awarded grants and
scholarships totalling $20 million to the
University of British Columbia.
The creation of the research chair in
forest policy is in response to a need for a
new process of forest policy formulation,
one which integrates forest policy research
with forestry science, economic modelling,
new product development process
engineering, etc., and links the user and the
scientist in the process.
This need has been recognized by the
forest industry and its labor unions, by the
Canadian Forestry Service of Environment
Canada, and by the forestry schools of
Canadian universities, all of whom endorse
this award.
NSERC and the forest industry, including
the two largest trade unions in the forest
sector, have contributed a total endowment
of $725,000 over five years with an option
for renewal for a further five years.
NSERC is contributing $70,000 per year
and the private sector approximately
$75,000. Private sector contributors
include a dozen major corporations from
the east coast to B.C., the Cariboo Lumber
Manufacturers Association, the Northern
Interior Lumber Sector of the Council of
the Forest Industries of B.C., as well as the
Canadian Paperworkers Union and the
International Woodworkers of America.
The money will fund the position of Mr.
Reed, former assistant deputy minister of
the Canadian Forestry Service, who will
head the forest policy research program at
UBC, and research associates yet to be

months. During the period, assistant
directors Dennis Haller and Charles
Rooney will report to Bruce Gellady,
vice-president administration and finance.
Mr. Smith said each building would be

Forestry gets
block grant
Graduate studies and research in UBC's
Faculty of Forestry have been given a boost
for the second year in a row by the federal
The faculty has received a 1984-85
block grant of $323,000 from the Canadian
Forestry Service, most of which will be
used to support graduate students and
research assistants as well as research
projects initiated by faculty members.
UBC is one of six Canadian universities
with forestry schools which receive block
grants from the federal government as part
of a program aimed at improving
professional manpower development in
the forest sector.
Part of these funds will be used for four
postgraduate fellowships, each worth $9,500,
and $48,000 will provide salaries for
graduate teaching assistants.
A total of 18 faculty members will
receive research support from the block
grant for a wide range of projects in the
fields of tree growth, harvesting and forest
ecology. UBC Reports October 17, 1984
$13.50 parlayed into $150,000 collection
A foundation that came into existence 31
years ago with assets of $13.50 has been
responsible for providing UBC with
Canada's leading collection of books on
angling and game fish, according to one of
its original members.
The Harry Hawthorn Foundation for the
Inculcation and Propogation of the
Principles and Ethics of Fly-Fishing, formed
in 1953 during a Vancouver Island fishing
expedition, is the organization behind the
1,600-item book collection housed mainly
in UBC's Woodward Library and in Special
The foundation's honorary secretary, Prof.
Stanley Read, a retired UBC English
teacher, estimates that members of the
group have "donated" more than $35,000
to the foundation over the past three
decades to enable UBC to purchase much
of the collection, now valued at more than
Prof. Read uses the word donation with a
grin, because the gifts are actually a series
of fines levied on members for real or
imaginary violations of the foundation's
angling regulations. Members have been
fined for everything from being absent
from the foundation's annual fishing trip to
-using angling gear judged by members to
be "unethical."
The foundation got its start in May,
1953, when eight UBC teachers and
administrators repaired to Upper Campbell
Lake near Campbell River on Vancouver
Island at the end of the academic year.
Among the original group were UBC's
then president, Dr. Norman MacKenzie;
deputy president Dr. Geoffrey Andrew;
UBC's then head librarian Dr. Neil
Harlow; Prof. Read; and, of course, Prof.
Hawthorn, then head of the Department
of Anthropology and Sociology and a key
figure in amassing the collection of West
Coast Indian art now housed in UBC's
Museum of Anthropology.
"If memory serves", Prof. Read says, "it
was Geoffrey Andrew who suggested
making three pools at a quarter apiece
— one for the first fish caught, one for the
largest fish caught and a third for the most
fish caught
"That evening, when we assembled,
various good-natured arguments broke
out over the pools. I was disqualified from
winning the pool for having caught the
first fish because I had fished alone and no
one could check the time of my catch."
The upshot, on the last night of the
expedition, was the convening of a court
presided over by Dr. MacKenzie and the
late Roderick Haig-Brown, the noted
writer and conservationist who had joined
the group from nearby Campbell River,
where he was a magistrate.
The friendly arguing over the pool
money was resolved when the judges
decreed that the cash in hand — about
$6 — would be used to establish the
foundation with Prof. Hawthorn's name
attached to it When it was pointed out that
the money on hand was scarcely adequate
for a foundation, the judges levied fines on
all who had won at poker. It all added up
to $13.50. Nevertheless, a few weeks later
UBC's then Board of Governors was
informed about the establishment of the
foundation and gave it official approval.
Nothing that has been written about the
founding of the organization indicates
who suggested that Prof. Hawthorn's name
should be attached to it or who thought
up the rather lengthy and pompous
description of its purpose. What is clear is
that the fines levied by the court were to be
used to purchase books for the UBC
Library on angling and game fish.
In addition to books purchased with
foundation contributions, the collection has
been swelled by normal University
acquisitions and several notable gifts of both
books and money. Haig-Brown donated
many of his own works and Tommy
Brayshaw, the Yorkshire-born B.C. artist
Guidelines issued for
academic daycare use
There are times when there are more adults
than children in UBC's child care centres, says
coordinator Mob Oloman. The following
guidelines on academic use of the centres were
provided by Ms. Oloman.
There are 11 child care centres on the
UBC campus in which full day care is
provided for up to 275 children whose
parents are connected with the University
either as students, staff or faculty. The
children range in age from 18 months to
12 years.
These facilities are used extensively by
students and faculty for research and
observation. Departments which have
visited the centres in the last year include:
Architecture, Audiology and Speech
Sciences, Dental Hygiene, Education,
Family and Nutritional Sciences, Linguistics,
Nursing, Physical Education, Psychology
and Business Administration.
Projects have ranged from daycare design
to notation of 50 utterances of the
20-month-old child!
Academic use is welcomed so long as it
does not disrupt the day-to-day operation of
the centres, but the following guidelines
should be observed:
1) Contact the Child Care Coordinator,
Hut 88, 2727 Acadia Road
(228-5343) before you contact
the individual centres. The
facilities are also used by the
community colleges for practica
for their Early Childhood
Education students so it is
important to schedule academic
use so as not to overwhelm the
children with too many adults.
2) For simple observations where
verbal interaction with a child,
staff or parent will not be
recorded, explain the project
and the age of the child you wish
to observe and you will be
directed to one of the centres.
3) If you plan to do research
involving human subjects for
questionnaires, interviews, testing,
video or audio taping you must
first submit a request for
permission to the Ethics
Committee (228-5583). A brief
oudine of the project should be
written for the information of
the parents and staff and a
release statement for parents to
sign should be prepared. As for
the above, arrangements for the
use of the centres should be
made through the Child Care
Coordinator's office.
Special Note to Faculty: It would be
helpful if you would let the coordinator's
office know in advance the course name
and number of students and the due date
of an assignment that may involve the
Child Care Centres. It can be chaotic when
30 or 40 students want to observe that
20-month-old utterer the day before the
assignment is due.
Two other facilities on or near the
campus which are used for academic
purposes are the Berwick Preschool
(228-6110) and the Child Study Centre
(736-5571). The Berwick Centre is an
integrated preschool program for 45
handicapped and non-handicapped children
2Vi-& years. It operates from 9 a.m.-2 p.m.
weekdays. The Child Study Centre is a
research and demonstration preschool
operated by the Centre for the Study of
Curriculum and Instruction, Faculty of
Education. The centre operates a daily
program for up to 90 children aged 2 to 4
UBC librarian Dr. Lee Perry displays a few
of the more valuable books that are part of a
1,600-item UBC collection of angling and
game fish largely funded by the Harry
Hawthorn Foundation for the Inculcation
and Propogation of the Principles and
Ethics of Fly-Fishing, founded 31 years
ago. Dr. Perry and fellow librarian Lynn
Copeland recently completed a computerized
version of the collection with aid of a grant
from the Leon and Thea Koerner Foundation.
noted for his woodcarvings and paintings of
fish and fishing, willed a valuable
collection of books and other material to

Many of the books are housed on the
open shelves of UBC's Woodward Library,

UBC chemistry professor Anthony f. Merer
was honored earlier this month at the 31st
annual conference of the Spectroscopy Society
of Canada in St. fovite, Quebec, where he
received the society's Barringer Award, made
to younger Canadian scientists to encourage
applied research in analytical spectroscopy.
Over the past 15 years, Prof. Merer has
become widely known in the world of
chemistry for his unique contributions to
atmospheric spectroscopy In the 1970s he
made a major contribution to atmospheric
spectroscopy through the analysis of the
ultra-violet spectra of two major air
pollutants, sulphur and nitrogen dioxide,
and more recently he has been using laser
spectroscopy to pioneer methods of analysing
the spectra of metal oxides at the extremely
high resolutions possible with lasers.

Association of B.C. in memory of
Another valuable member of the
foundation over the years was the late Dr.
Leon Ladner, a former member of UBC's
Board of Governors who, in addition to
contributing generously to the book-
purchase fund, arranged for the group to
meet annually at the Pennask Fishing and
Game Club near Merritt in B.C.'s southern
The latest bibliography listing all the
items in the collection, entitled "i-or the
Contemplative Man: A Bibliography of
Works on Angling and on Game Fish in
the University of British Columbia Library,"
has just been produced by computer, a
move that will make it easier to update
The collection contains many rare and
valuable items, but lacks one seminal
work, according to Prof. Read — a first
edition of the famed book by Izaak Walton
(1593-1683) called The Complete Angler: or,
The Contemplative Man's Recreation, published
in 1653.
There were five editions of the work
published in Walton's lifetime, Prof. Read
says, and all five, sold as a unit in London
some year's ago, fetched close to.M),000
However, someday a purchase of the
Walton work may be possible. The
foundation continues to meet annually at
Pennask Lake. Eleven members gathered
this year for three days in August and the
annual court at the end of the expedition
was presided over, as usual, by Dr.
MacKenzie, now almost 91 years old.
Some members were fined $50 and
others $20 for various infractions and
absences. Between one thing and another,
Prof. Read says he hopes to add about
$1,000 to the coffers of the foundation in
1984 to continue expansion of its UBC
book collection.
UBC's management school, with the
assistance of the faculty's advisory council,
has created an affiliates program similar to
the industrial affiliates or associates
programs of several major U.S. universities.
To become an affiliate, firms donate
$4,000 per year while endowments of
$100,000 or more entitle the donor to a
life membership.
Dean Peter Lusztig of the Faculty of
Commerce and Business Administration
says, the program is named "Partners in
Excellence". "This partnership refers to the
affiliate firm's commitment to support
excellence in management education at
UBC and to the faculty's commitment to
keep affiliates abreast of its research
activities," he said. Affiliates also receive
other benefits, including special assistance
in the recruitment of students and
invitations as guests to a limited number of
executive program offerings — the faculty's
professional development courses for senior
"First call on the funds raised will be
support for increased placement activity
by the faculty," Dr. Lusztig said. "With the
assistance of our advisory council task
force we expect to enrol 25 affiliates by the
end of 1984 and to reach our target of 50
by the end of next year."

At UBC Mr. Reed will direct research in a
number of policy areas where Canada is
weak compared with its competitors because
of a lack of adequate information upon
which to base decisions.
The areas include trade policy, Pacific
Rim marketing strategy, labor, management
and capital productivity, income tax
treatment of forestry and increased
biotechnology research.
The flash-smelting research facility in the
Department of Metallurgical Engineering
will be one of few in the world.
New flash-smelting processes are seriously
being considered as replacement for the
aging sinter strand/blast furnace process
currendy used in Canadian lead smeltere.
The basic advantages of flash-smelting
over current methods are the rapidity and
labor-saving aspects of the reactions and
that the reactions are carried out in a single,
sealed reactor confining all fumes and
noxious gases to an easily handled gas
Although the flash-smelting process has
been developed on a pilot scale in the
U.S.S.R. and Finland, it has not yet operated
on a commercial basis; thus Canadian lead
producers could be the pioneers in this
Because little experimental and technical
data exists on the process of flash smelting,
fundamental research in this area is
urgendy required by the Canadian lead
With the assistance of the NSERC grant,
Dr. Keith Brimacombe, a recognized
expert in the field of process metallurgy,
and Prof. Gregory Richard, both of UBC's
Department of Metallurgical Engineering,
will construct a small flash system capable
of smelting up to 2 Kg/min of lead
concentrates. The flash system will be used
to study the effect of concentrate type, feed
rate, concentrate/oxygen ratio, and burner
design on the smelting of lead concentrates
supplied by Canadian lead producers.
This project is also supported by four
prominent Canadian companies —
Cominco, Noranda, Inco, and Hatch
Associates (major consultants to the
metallurgical industry). The total contribution
of these companies over the three-year
period amounts to $180,000.
NSERC will contribute $246,490 over
two years to the upgrading of the current
tracking-antenna and satellite receiving
facility in the Department of Oceanography
through the development of a computer
preprocessor and computer system.
The original facility has been funded
primarily through NSERC strategic grants
with an additional five-year loan of
equipment from MacDonald-Dettwiler 8c
Associates Ltd. (MDA). The upgrade will
make it possible to record incoming satellite
data directly on disk rather than on
magnetic tape; in so doing, subsequent
processing will be streamlined and
problems with tape systems avoided.
The data collected are used by Dr.
William Emery in a variety of projects
studying wind and sea surface temperature
patterns. In addition, data are made
available to scientists at the Institute of
Ocean Sciences at Patricia Bay and to
fisheries scientists in Vancouver.
This satellite receiving facility, the only
one located within a Canadian university,
offers a unique training environment for
graduate students and other professionals.
The training received by UBC graduates
should prove valuable to both government
agencies and industries interested in
satellite data.
The commitment of MacDonald-Detwiler
and Associates Ltd. to the funding of this
equipment amounts to $130,500 over two
