Brock Hall designated as student services centre
UBC's administration has
designated Brock Hall as the site for
housing most of the University offices
which provide services to students.
Over the next two years, the
building on the East Mall will be
renovated to house the Student
Counselling and Resources Centre,
now located in Ponderosa Annex F off
the West Mall, and the Awards Office, now located in the General Services Administration Building at the
corner of Wesbrook Mall and University Boulevard.
Prof. Erich Vogt, UBC's vice-
president for faculty and student affairs, said the psychiataric unit
associated with the Student Health
Service, which is now located in the
new Walter Koerner Acute Care Unit
of the Health Sciences Centre
Hospital, would also move to Brock
Hall eventually.
Already located in Brock Hall are
two major offices which provide services to students — the Canada
Employment Centre and Women
Students' Office.
Prof. Vogt said the first renovations
will be carried out this fall with a view
to moving the Student Counselling
and Resources Centre into Brock Hall
early in 1981.
The move to consolidate most student  services  under one roof stems

More than 1,500 spectators watched on the grounds of
UBC's Museum of Anthropology Sunday (Aug. 24) as a
new totem pole, carved at 'Rsan, the native Indian
cultural centre near Hazleton, B.C., was raised during a
colorful ceremony. The pole was raised according to the
traditions of the Gitksan and included a wolf dance,

Bank of Canada.
from recommendations made in a
1978 report prepared by an eight-
member committee established by
President Douglas Kenny at the request of the UBC Board of Governors.
The committee called for a radical
revision of services provided to
students and recommended establishment of a Counselling Centre and a
Career Education and Placement
Centre which would work closely with
the Canada Employment Centre.
UBC's 1980-81 daytime winter session enrolment is expected to be about
the same as last year, when a record
23,161 students were registered for
academic programs, officials in the
Registrar's Office said this week.
But there's a good chance that those
entering from B.C. secondary schools
will be better able to cope with
university-level work.
The reason is that UBC is now only
a year away from full implementation
of the tougher entrance requirements
that were approved by UBC's Senate
in 1977.
The University has been phasing in
the new regulations since 1978 in
order that students in B.C. secondary
schools could tailor their programs to
meet the new entrance standards.
B.C. students entering directly from
secondary schools in 1981 will be required to have a C + average and they
must have taken English 11 and 12,
social studies 11, mathematics 11,
French 11 or a foreign language 11, a
science 12, and four additional subjects from the arts and science
category of the senior secondary
school curriculum, three of which
must be numbered 12.
This year, B.C. students entering
from secondary schools require a C +
average, with borderline applicants
being considered on an assessment of
their capacity for success in university
The C + average is calculated on
the 10 courses which have the highest
gradings. These include English 11
and 12, social studies 11, three courses
numbered 12 (in addition to English
12) selected from the arts and science
category of the secondary school curriculum, and all prescribed subjects
relative to the student's intended program.

For those of you who are old hands
at the registration game, you're
reminded that there's been one major
change in the mechanics of enrolling
at UBC in 1980.
Instead of going to Brock Hall to
complete your registration, go to the
War Memorial Gymnasium this year
to hand in your course cards, pay your
fees (if you wish) and acquaint
yourself with such UBC units as the
Student Health Service.
The reason for the switch is that
part of Brock Hall is being renovated
to provide quarters for the Student
Counselling and Resource Centre,
which is expected to move into the
building early in 1981 as part of a
University plan to house all units providing services to students under one

UBC moves quickly to
avert Library doomsday
Prof. Cas Lindsey, left, head of UBC's Institute of Animal Resource Ecology,
and fellow fisheries scientist Prof. Don McPhail hold a sketch done by Prof.
Lindsey of the elusive popcorn fish, which may (or may not) inhabit a small
lake in the Yukon.
On the trail of the
elusive popcorn fish
Two University of B.C. scientists have been involved in a 27-year series of events
which culminated this summer in a federal government decision to give the name
Popcornfish Lake to a small body of water in a remote part of the Yukon.
The chain of events that led to the naming of the lake began in the summer of
1953, says Prof. Cas Lindsey who, with Prof. Don McPhail are two of Canada's best
known experts on the freshwater fish of northern Canada and Alaska.
Prof. Lindsey is now head of UBC's Institute of Animal Resource Ecology and
Prof. McPhail is a colleague in the same UBC graduate institute.
In the summer of 1953, Al Martin, the cook for a small geological survey party in
the Yukon, caught an odd-looking fish in the remote lake about 500 kilometres
north of Whitehorse.
The fish was distinguished by having a large number of bumps on its head, which
resembled popcorn. Martin, who has been described as a "keen observer" of Yukon
wildlife, said he'd never before seen a fish like it and promptly named it the popcorn fish.
Before any of the scientists associated with the survey party returned to camp,
Martin did what all good cooks are paid to do — he fried up the odd-looking fish
and shared it with helicopter pilot Jimmy Greenshields and an unidentified
helicopter mechanic.
Prof. Lindsey began his own research on northern freshwater fish shortly after
the 1953 incident and heard persistent tales about the popcorn fish from bush pilots
and other Yukon residents.
In 1960, he finally contacted one of the scientists who had been on the Yukon
survey and learned to his dismay that Martin had died of a heart attack the previous
In the summer of 1960, Profs.Lindsey and McPhail journeyed to the Yukon lake
in an attempt to net the elusive popcorn fish.
The nets they set yielded only the usual occupants of the lake — suckers, sculpin
and grayling — which prompted a Whitehorse newspaper to print a story headlined
"Popcorn fish makes suckers out of UBC scientists."
In March of this year, Prof. Lindsey was contacted by C. Lyle Hammond, a
federal government official with Indian and Northern Affairs, who sits on the
Canadian Permanent Committee on Geographical Place Names. He had seen a
reference to Popcornfish Lake in an academic paper published by Prof. Lindsey in
Prof. Lindsey provided details on how Popcornfish Lake got its name and was
informed in mid-July that the permanent committee had officially approved the
So much for the series of events leading to the naming of the lake. But the question remains: Does the popcorn fish really exist?
Prof. Lindsey won't come right out and say he's convinced the unique fish exists
in the Yukon lake. His attitude, which is based on precedent, is that there is a lot of
evidence for believing that a unique species of fish might have survived the last ice
age 10,000 years ago.
Prof. Lindsey points out that much of the Yukon was not covered with ice during
the last ice age. "All the plants, animals and fish in glaciated areas were wiped out,"
he says, "but in the extensive unglaciated areas, unique types of mosses and alpine
flowers, as well as some kinds of insects like ground beetles and sow bugs, survived
in isolation."
As for fish that survived in unglaciated areas, Prof. Lindsey points to the Alaska
blackfish, which occurs only in that U.S. state and eastern Siberia. "The range of
the fish conforms exactly to the area that was unglaciated," Prof. Lindsey says,
"and means there's precedent for believing that another unique species of fish may
have survived in isolation in northern Canadian lakes."
There's also evidence, says Prof. Lindsey, that northern fish which survived in
unglaciated lakes developed distinctive biochemical characteristics."A student of
mine who's just completed work on a master's degree has found that whitefish taken
from a number of unglaciated northern lakes have two or three genetic versions of a
particular chemical substance in their flesh in a unique combination.
"That means there's something odd about their evolutionary history and the
likeliest explanation is that they survived in unglaciated lakes that were isolated
during the last ice age some 10,000 years ago."
When pressed, Dr. Lindsey does admit that the fish Al Martin caught in the summer of 1953 at Popcornfish Lake might have been a sucker or a sculpin with some
type of abnormal head growths, possibly caused by parasites.
In any case, Prof. Lindsey says, he plans to continue studies of the evolutionary
history of northern fishes and will be keeping a sharp eye out for the popcorn fish.
As he puts it: "If Canadians are prepared to believe in the Sasquatch and in
Ogopogo, they should keep an open mind about more plausible creatures like the
popcorn fish."
UBC planners expect to have a final
report on library space requirements
ready for President Douglas Kenny by
late October.
The report, which will make recommendations on the construction and
siting of new library facilities, will be
based on a series of technical studies
which have been carried out over the
summer by UBC's Facilities Planning
The technical studies were called
for in the interim report of a
33-member president's committee on
library space requirements, chaired by
Dean Peter Larkin, head of the Faculty of Graduate Studies, which
reported to President Kenny in the
The committee, which spent more
than a year studying UBC's present
library situation, recommended an
immediate start on a building program to create more room for the normal growth of book and other collections until 1990 and to provide adequate space for some other library
The building program is designed
to stave off what the Larkin committee describes as "Doomsday," the day
when UBC's existing library system
runs out of space for books and other
new materials.
The committee estimated the cost
of new construction to avert the looming crisis for the library as at least $25
In its interim report, the Larkin
committee emphasized that the UBC
library system is a provincial and national resource, widely used by the
general public, governments, business
firms and students from other institutions. It also makes its collection
available to distant borrowers through
an inter-library loan service.
"It is against this background," the
committee concludes, "that a special
financing formula is appropriate, and
should perhaps take the form of
substantial grants from the provincial
and federal governments, and a
public appeal for donations.
"Most to the point, as a university-
wide and provincial and national
resource, the library system should not
be placed in the same priority stream
as other University buildings."
Here are the details of the two plans
proposed by the Larkin committee in
its interim report, both of which involve the complete renovation and
redesign of UBC's Main Library.
PLAN A. This plan would involve
a major addition or additions to the
Main Library and the possible construction of a new library building on
a central site, "perhaps as part of a
'core renewal' of the site presently occupied by the Mathematics,
Geography and Old Administration
Buildings," the report says.
A scheme for connecting the Main
and Sedgewick Libraries, proposed
when the latter building was built,
might be re-examined, the committee
has suggested.
Plan A, in addition to suggesting
the renovation and redesign of the
Main Library, proposes additions to
existing   branch   libraries   whenever
there is an opportunity to do so, as in
the proposals to add to the MacMillan
Building, which houses the Faculties;
of Agricultural Sciences and Forestry,
the Scarfe Building for Education and
the east wing of the Biological.
Sciences Building.
Plan A, the committee comments,
"would have the merit of maintaining
geographical configurations, but
would pose serious problems of siting
and construction in the Main Library
PLAN B also calls for renovation
and redesign of the Main Library as
well as an addition to that building on
a smaller scale than the addition envisioned in Plan A.
The new element in Plan B would
be a large new Science Library at the
south end of the main campus in the
vicinity of the complex of buildings
which house various departments of
the Faculty of Applied Science. This
building, the report says, would incorporate some of the existing branch
Plan B, says the report, "would give
considerable relief to the Main
Library problem of space and would
be responsive to substantial user needs
in science-oriented departments and
faculties. There would be a change in
present user patterns."
Parking decals
to be mailed on
Sept. 2
Those members of the UBC
community woo opted to participate in the new computer mailout
and payroll deduction scheme for
1980-81 parking decals shouldn't
fret if they haven't received their
new decals by the end of August,
when current decals expire.
The Traffic and Security
Department won't be mailing the
decals until Sept. 2. And your
1979-80 parking decal will remain valid until the latter part of
the September, when campus patrolmen will begin enforcing campus parking regulations.
The reason for the delay, say*
traffic and security head Al Hutchinson, is that some people who
made application to take part in
the scheme earlier this year will
now have left the University and
their decals will have to be cancelled.
Those who opted for the
scheme will have the decal fee
deducted from their August paycheck.
Mr, Hutchinson reminds those
who didn't opt to take part in the
scheme that they will have to visit
the traffic and security building
on Wesbrook Mall with their car
to get a 1980-81 decal. He suggests you do it as soon as possible
to avoid the rash that will come

Eighteen vehicles operated by
UBC's Department of Physical Plant
will be running on compressed natural
gas by the end of September.
The conversion is being carried out
under an agreement between UBC
and the provincial government, which
will pay for equipment installation
and fuel for a year-long test period.
Vehicle performance will be
monitored by B.C. Research, the independent industrial research
organization which has its headquarters on the UBC campus.
The conversion involves mounting
on each vehicle a 400-pound cylinder
containing natural gas compressed to
2,500 pounds per square inch. Each
cylinder will contain compressed gas
equivalent to six gallons of gasoline
which will power the vehicle for 80 to
90 miles at about half the cost of
The physical plant vehicles will continue to carry gasoline, however, and
drivers will be able to switch from one
fuel to another at will.
In other energy news, the provincial
government has given UBC almost
$526,000 to set up a laboratory in the
Faculty of Applied Science to study
automobile engine fuelling systems,
with emphasis on the use of compressed natural gas for powering cars.
A major thrust of 12-member
research team headed by Prof. Enoch
Durbin of Princeton University will be
development of a more efficient device
to enable cars to run on both compressed natural gas and conventional
The research team will also look at
other possible alternative fuels for use
in cars. These include methane and
methanol, which can be derived from
wood and coal.

Working drawings are being
prepared for a new University
Bookstore to be constructed at the corner of University Boulevard and the
East Mall directly east of the
Biological Sciences Building.
UBC will borrow the funds to construct the two-storey building, with
the loan being repaid out of future net
revenues of the Bookstore.
The new building will contain 5,889
metres of space on two levels. Retail
selling space in the new bookstore will
be three times larger than similar
space in the present Bookstore. Architects for the project are Zoltan Kiss
and Partners.
A new team to administer UBC's
athletic program was appointed over
the summer.
Prof. Robert Hindmarch, a faculty
member in UBC's School of Physical
Education and Recreation since 1950,
was named director of athletics and
sports services in June.
The new director of the men's
athletic program is Rick Noonan,
who's been head trainer and instructor
on athletic injuries since 1970. His
position complements that of Marilyn
Pomfret, the long-time administrator
of the women's athletic program.
Nestor Korchinsky, also a member
of the UBC school of Physical Education and Recreation, has taken over
responsibility for both the intramural
athletic program and Recreation
UBC, which provides recreational activities for the University community
Continuing as assistant director of
men's athletics is D.L. "Buzz" Moore.
The reorganization of the athletic-
program administration came on the
heels of the retirement in June of R.J.
"Bus" Phillips as director of men's
athletics. He's "retired" as the first executive secretary of the Canada West
Athletic Association, a post that will
keep him right in the middle of
university sports.

UBC got a new vice-president over
the summer. He's Prof. James
Kennedy,who was named vice-
president for University services to sue -
ceed C.J. "Chuck" Connaghan, who
resigned to set up his own consulting
business in Vancouver.
Vice-president Kennedy, who was
director of UBC's Computing Centre
for 14 years, is responsible for non-
academic support services, including
Employee Relations, Physical Plant,
Purchasing, Facilities Planning and
Traffic and Security. He'll also
have overall responsibility for the
Computing Centre, which is now
headed by Alvin Fowler, former
associate director of the centre.
Other notable summer appointments include:
Dr. Guy Carden of Yale University
as head of the Department of
Linguistics in the Faculty of Arts:
Prof. Leslie Lavkulich as head of
the Department of Soil Science in the
Faculty of Agricultural Sciences;
Dr. Donald Paty, a top multiple
sclerosis researcher from the University of Western Ontario as head of the
Architect's sketch shows entrance to new UBC Bookstore to be constructed at intersection of University Boulevard and East Mall directly east of Biological Sciences
Building, seen at centre rear of sketch. New bookstore is adjacent to main UBC bus
stop, seen at right, and will provide triple the retail space in present bookstore.
Zoltan Kiss and Partners are project architects.
Ready and waiting to provide services to students in their new quarters in the
Walter Koerner Acute Care Unit of the Health Sciences Centre Hospital are
these key members of the Student Health Service — director Dr. Archie
Johnson and nursing supervisor Kathleen Boyle. Eight doctors (including three
psychiatrists), five nurses and seven clerks make up the staff of the service,
which provides a full range of medical, laboratory and x-ray services. Students
who need hospital care will be admitted to the new acute-care unit. The service
is open from 7:45 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday to Friday during the winter session.
Call 228-7011 (dial the entire number) for more information. And you can

Prof. Pearse, who's been a member
of the economics department since
1962, has returned to teaching after a
year's leave of absence with the United
Nations, where he prepared a report
on fisheries regulation for the Food
and Agricultural Organization and
advised the government of the East
African country of Mauritania on
fisheries management policies and the
government of the Malaysian state of
Sabah on revision of the royalty system
on the harvesting of hardwood timber.
