Four old army huts in Acadia Camp, slated for removal to make way for a new $9.7
million family housing project, were torched last week to provide University
Endowment Lands firefighters with practice in dealing whzhHouse fires. At its
October meeting, UBC's Board of Governors authorized the University to seek
provincial-government approval to borrow funds to build the 158-unit housing
development. Loan will be repaid out of housing revenues.
UBC receives support from
IBM for computer project
UBC and IBM Canada Ltd. have
signed a three-year, $2 million
cooperative agreement to explore ways
computers can be used to help
improve productivity in Canada's legal
system. The grant is the first
cooperative agreement made by IBM
with a Canadian university.
"Computer technology offers tremendous opportunities for the legal
profession and the judiciary to improve
their service to the community," said
UBC President pro tern. Robert Smith.
"Computers can greatly reduce the time
and effort spent searching through
legal libraries and processing court
orders, for example. This project will
have a significant impact on how law is
studied, taught, practised and applied.
The overall a;m of the project is to help
legal professionals provide better, more
efficient and cheaper services to the
public We are grateful for IBM's
support of our research in this area."
UBC will search for a variety of ways
computers can be used to improve legal
productivity. A major focus of the
agreement will be the development of a
sentencing database for the judiciary.
The faculty plans to establish a database
of Provincial and Court of Appeal
sentences that will allow judges to
quickly review sentences given in cases
similar to those they are considering.
With this information judges will be
aided in providing consistent and fair
A second project will involve the
development of computer-assisted "expert
systems" to aid lawyers in their legal
research. Lawyers dealing with cases
outside their area of specialization can
use the expert system to guide them to
the research material that is relevant to
their case, thus reducing the time
previously spent sifting through large
quantities of research material in search
of relevant information.
The law faculty will also focus on
developing computer-assisted instructional packages and computer literacy
courses for law students and legal
professionals, computer systems for legal
clinics and productivity tools for the
Under the agreement, IBM will
donate an IBM 4300 computer system,
122 IBM Personal Computers, as well
as appropriate software and personnel
assistance. UBC will contribute faculty
research time and facilities in excess of
$1.6 million.
UBC's law faculty opened a computing
facility in the Curtis Building in
January, 1985, with funds from the
University and the Law Foundation of
British Columbia. As a result of the
UBC-IBM agreement the facility will be
expanded to include two new classrooms
and an increased research capacity.
UBC scientist awarded
Science Council medal
Dr. J. Keith Brimacombe, director of
the Centre for Mineral Process Engineering
at UBC and a Stelco Professor in the
Department of Metallurgical Engineering,
has received one of three Cold Medals
awarded by the Science Council of
British Columbia for 1985. The awards,
which have been given annually since
1980, honor researchers who have
made outstanding and innovative
contributions to the fields of science
and engineering.
Gold medals were also awarded to
Dr. John Borden, an SFU biologist, and
Dr. Robert Noble, a retired UBC faculty
member who is currently a senior
research scientist at the Cancer Control
Agency of B.C. Dr. Borden, who leads a
team of SFU and UBC scientists in
developing ways to control the
infestation of mountain pine beetles in
B.C.'s forests, received a medal in the
category of Applied Natural Sciences.
Dr. Noble, who was a member of the
UBC Faculty of Medicine from 1960
until his retirement in 1975, received a
medal in the Health Sciences category.
Dr. Noble received world-wide acclaim
for his role in the discovery of
Vinblastine, a chemical used in the
treatment of cancer. He has also made
significant contributions to the study
and treatment of breast cancer.
Dr. Brimacombe is internationally
known for his research on the analysis,
design and modelling of metallurgical
processes. Since 1970 he has been
conducting research on processes in
which metals are extracted from their
ores and converted into useful products.
Dr. Brimacombe received a medal in
the category of Applied Science.
Dr. Andre Van Schyndel, who
received his Ph.D. in physics from UBC
in 1984, has been awarded an
Industrial Post Doctoral Fellowship
worth $25,000 by the Science Council
of British Columbia.
Dr. Van Schyndel, 29, has received
wide acclaim for the devices he has built
to assist people with impaired hearing
and sight. One device takes the normal
frequencies of the recorded human
voice and drops them to a level many
deaf people can detect and understand.
Another is a voice indexer that enables
blind people to find quickly the
sections they want to listen to in
recorded books.
The Science Council Fellowship will
be paid to Ambrex International
Incorporated, a Burnaby firm, enabling
them to employ Dr. Van Schyndel in
their research and development division.
The firm plans to use his skills and
knowledge to develop a low-cost audio
cassette recorder/player capable of
transmitting pre-recorded voice information over telephone lines at speeds
up to ten times faster than normal
The Industrial Post Doctoral Fellowship
program was established by the Science
Council of British Columbia to
encourage private companies in B.C. to
hire recent Ph.D. graduates in jobs
related to their fields of expertise.

United Way campaign
continues on campus
The 1985 United Way Appeal is in full
swing on the UBC campus and campus
chairman Prof. Dennis Pavlich of the law
faculty is urging members of the
university community to be generous in
their support of the appeal. "Unfortunately there's a tendency for charitable
contributions to decline in difficult
economic times, when those in need are
more dependent than ever on our
help," he said. "I hope that the UBC
faculty, staff and students will meet the
challenge of this year's appeal and will
show the generosity they have in the

UBC's Board of Governors has
approved the establishment of a
16-member Athletic Council to integrate
the operation of all University athletic
programs and administer an athletics
budget which will total almost $2.5
million in 1985-86.
In addition to drawing up an annual
athletics budget for approval by the
Board of Governors, the council is
charged with making recommendations
for "the use and development of present
and future athletic facilities."
Chairing the new council in a
non-voting capacity will be Dr. Neil
Risebrough, associate vice-president,
student services, who has worked out
the makeup and duties of the new body
in consultations with the Alma Mater
The voting members of the council,
who will total 15, are:
• Five students appointed by the AMS;
• Five University appointees approved
by the Board of Governors;
• Four alumni, two appointed by the
AMS and two appointed by the
University; and
• Dr. Robert Hindmarch, director of
sports services at UBC.
The new athletic set-up also
envisages at least four committees to
advise the council on various aspects
of UBC's athletic program. Proposed are
separate committees on men's and
women's interuniversity athletics, a third
•on intramural sports and a fourth on
recreation and sports services.
The recommendation that went to
the Board on Thursday (Oct. 17) also
recommended that the Department of
Athletics and Sports Services be
operated as an ancillary service with a
subsidy of $525,000 from University
operating funds in the current fiscal
Eleven nominated
for UBC Board
A total of eleven members of UBC's
support staff have been nominated for
the Board of Governors' position which
is open to a full-time employee who is
not a faculty member.
Nominations for the position on
UBC's 15-member Board closed at 4
p.m. yesterday (Oct. 22). Up for election
are: Sandra Bruneau, Admissions
Office; Avron Hoffman, Library; William
Johnson, Campus Mail Room; George
McLaughlin, Physical Plant; William
Morrison, Department of Physics;
Jeannine Kapelus, Computing Centre;
George Bradley, Department of Zoology;
Nigel Harrison, Department of Pathology;
Kerry Regier, Library; Ken Langland,
Centre for Continuing Education; and
Shurli Channe, Community Relations.
The election was necessitated by the
early retirement of Victor Doray,
former head of the Department of
Biomedical Communications in the
Faculty of Medicine. The individual
elected to the post will complete Mr.
Doray's unexpired term of office, ending
]an. 31,1987.
Ballots for the election will be mailed
to eligible voters this week, according
to Kenneth Young, UBC's Registrar, who
is responsible for the conduct of
elections to UBC's Board and Senate.
In other election news, UBC's
Senate, at its October meeting,
approved a schedule for the election to
Board and Senate of student representatives, who serve for one year.
Nominations for two student positions
on the Board and 17 positions on Senate
will close on Friday, Dec. 6. Election
polling will take place Jan. 15, 16 and
This places the sports program on
the same footing as other campus
ancillary services such as the Bookstore,
Food Services and student residences,
which must meet their annual
operating costs out of user revenues.
The Board was told that the AMS
executive had asked tor assurances that
the University will not reduce support
from operating funds in future years and
that any surplus remaining at the end
of the year may be retained in a reserve
fund for future development.
Vice-president administration and
finance Bruce Gellatly told the Board
that a $525,000 annual subsidy to
athletics should be supported in
principle but that funding levels would
have to be reassessed from time to
time in the light of the University's
financial circumstances.
Memorial service held for Neville Scarfe
A memorial service was held on Oct.
13 for Neville V. Scarfe, UBC education
dean from 1956 to 1973, who died on
Oct. 8 at the age of 77. More than 200
faculty members attended the service,
which was held in the UBC Scarfe
Education Building.
Born in England, Dean Scarfe was
educated at the University of London
where, at the age of 19, he was the
youngest person to place first in the
final exams for the Bachelor of Arts
He taught at the Universities of
Nottingham and London for a total of 20
years before emigrating to Canada to
become education dean at the University
of Manitoba in 1951. During the
Second World War, Dean Scarfe was on
leave of absence from the University of
London as director of Press Censorship
in the British Ministry of Information.
Dean Scarfe was regarded as one of
the most distinguished scholars in the
field of education when he was
appointed to head the newly organized
Faculty of Education at UBC in 1956.
The new UBC faculty took over
responsibility for all teacher training in
B.C. from provincial normal schools.
Throughout his career as an educational
administrator, Dean Scarfe continued
to take an active interest in his
academic discipline, geography. He
was chairman of a four-year study
(1952-56) of the International Geographical Union Commission of the
Teaching of Geography and was an
associate editor for almost a decade of
the Journal of Geography published by
the National Council for Geographic
Education, which he served as
president of in 1965.
He was the recipient in 1975 of the
council's G.|. Miller Award for
"distinguished service to geographic
Dean Scarfe was also a prolific
author who produced five books and
more than 125 articles on education
and geography.
Following his retirement from UBC,
Dean Scarfe played an active role in the
affairs of Brock House at Jericho
Beach, an activity centre for seniors. He
was president of the organization
shortly before his death.
Dean Scarfe is survived by his wife
Gladys, known as Paddy to the
University community, three sons and
six grandchildren.
Co-op students receive awards for technical reports
For the fifth consecutive year, UBC
cooperative education students have
received awards for outstanding
technical reports from the UBC Co-op
Employers' Advisory Council. The
awards were made at the council's fall
meeting on Oct. 18.
The three award winners among this
year's 100 Engineering and Agricultural
Sciences Co-op students are Marion
Adams in third-year Engineering

Marion Adams, recipient of an NSERC
undergraduate research award, worked
with Dr. Peter Lawrence in the
Department of Electrical Engineering on
Control Simulation of a Robot
Manipulator. James Elder worked with
Dr. Jim McEwen in the Bio-Engineering
Department of Vancouver General
Hospital on the software interface
between a computer and Neuromatic
Electromyograph and Winnie Lai
worked on the design of a test module
for oil and paper insulation, a joint
project of the B.C. Hydro Research
Laboratory and Dr. K.D. Srivastava,
head of Electrical Engineering at UBC.
The three companies providing
awards this year are Empress Foods,
represented on the advisory council by
the President, Mr. Bill Cough; MacDonald
MLAs spend a day on campus
The visit of the Social Credit Party
caucus to the University scheduled for
tomorrow (Oct. 24) has been cancelled
because of an emergency caucus
meeting in Victoria. The Socred visit will
be rescheduled for early November.
New Democratic Party MLAs and
caucus researchers visited the campus
as part of National Universities Week
yesterday (Oct. 22).
The schedules for both visits are
identical, in keeping with the
non-partisan nature of the University.
A tour of the campus in the morning
includes visits to a satellite imaging
research laboratory in the oceanography
department, a pilot-plant tree seedling
nursery in the Faculty of Forestry, the
Botanical Garden nursery where unique
plant stock is introduced into the
commercial nursery trade, and a food
pilot plant in the food science
During lunch MLAs have an
opportunity to meet student and faculty
representatives and members of the
senior University administration.
Two workshops in the afternoon on
industry liaison and technology transfer,
and international trade and the Pacific
Rim are followed by a tour of the music
and theatre departments. The visits end
with a reception.
The Office of Community Relations
has organized MLA Days for more than
10 years.
Faculty Club expands
UBC's Faculty Club will borrow
$652,000 to build a two-storey wing to
the club that will contain 12 bedrooms
for visitors to the University.
UBC's Board of Governors last week
authorized the club to proceed to
working drawings for the development
after learning that the University will
not be required to make any contributions
to the project. The loan to build the
addition will be paid out of user
Prof. J.F. Richards, chairman of the
club's board of directors, told the UBC
Board that the project was designed to
alleviate a chronic under-supply of
accommodation for visitors to the
University, most of whom now had to
be put up in off-campus hotels.

The UBC co-op programs, which
have offered study-related work experience
to UBC Engineering students during the
last eight summers, received a four-year
grant from Canada Employment this
year to develop a year-round co-op
program in Electrical Engineering. The
Department of Computer Science will
start a year-round co-op program in
January, 1986. A new co-op coordinator,
Mr. David Smith, has joined the co-op
office on campus to develop these new
Science Frontiers
The first of five forums on basic
research and applied technology at UBC
was held yesterday (Oct. 22) at the
Robson Square Media Centre under the
auspices of Placer Development Corp.
and UBC's Faculty of Science.
Entitled Science Frontiers, the
half-day forums will explore projects
from which will come tomorrow's
economic opportunities and challenges.
The series is the first major
undertaking of the Faculty of Science's
public relations committee and was
organized on its behalf by Prof. Douglas
Beder of the physics department and
Mr. David Vogt, department curator for
geophysics and astronomy.
Although the forums are the creation
of the Faculty of Science, research in a
number of UBC faculties is featured. A
brochure on the series can be obtained

Bus service offered
UBCs Department of Traffic and
Security is again providing a free,
evening bus service for members of the
campus community. The eight-
passenger mini-bus operates daily from 7
to 11 p.m., primarily as a safety service
for female students, faculty and staff.
The service originates from in front
of the Main Library and delivers
passengers to various outlying parking
lots and campus residences. The bus has
no set schedule or route, leaving when
a group of passengers is aboard and
taking them to their desired destinations.
Residents of Totem, Vanier, Gage and
Acadia wishing transportation to the
B-lots or the library may contact Traffic
and Security's Communications Operator
at 228-4721. Although priority is given to
female passengers, male riders will be
accommodated on a space-available
"This is intended as a safety service,
offered to female members of the
university faced with long walks to their
cars or residences," said Traffic and
Security director Al Hutchinson. "It is
not intended as taxi service to social
events and therefore side trips to the
campus social areas cannot be made."
"The service has proved popular with
the students in the past," he added,
"and we intend to maintain the bus runs,
manpower permitting."
The service is suspended during
mid-term and summer breaks.
