plastics and replace dwindling oil
President Douglas T. Kenny said he
was pleased that Deans Webber and
Lusztig had agreed to accept second
terms as heads of their respective
faculties. "Both have distinguished
academic records and have provided
vigorous leadership at a time when
enrolments in both faculties were

The Health Sciences Centre Hospital
will be independent of UBC by the
end of the month.
That's the target date set for the
hospital to begin operating under its
own board of trustees. At the moment,
a management committee administers
the hospital and reports to UBC's
Board of Governors. Under this
arrangement, the hospital is the only
one in Canada operated by a
But as of April 1, the hospital's new
board of trustees will report directly to
the provincial government through the
Ministry of Health, as do all other
hospitals in the province.
The University was authorized by
the Board of Governors at its March
meeting to enter into a series of
agreements to separate the hospital.
The University will negotiate with the
recently-created UBC Health Sciences
Centre Hospital Society.
In effect, the society will become
responsible for the hospital service
area while UBC will retain use of
academic space used for teaching and
Three agreements are involved:
The University will transfer
responsibility for operating the
hospital to the society, including the
transfer of the staff to the society as
employer, and the sale of equipment
and supplies for a nominal sum.
UBC will lease the hospital buildings
to the society.
And the society will lease back the
academic space within the buildings to
the University.
The society will lease and become
responsible for the 60-bed psychiatric
unit — including the psychiatric day
house, the 300-bed extended care unit,
and the 240-bed acute care unit. The
out-patient portion of the Student
Health Service remains a University

UBC thesis
gets top
Shirley Buswell, who is working on
her second masters degree from UBC,
recently won the $1,000 national
Epstein Award for her novel Garden of
The prize, which is sponsored by
University College of Toronto, is
awarded biennially for the best
unpublished manuscript entered by a
student enrolled at a Canadian
university. Garden of Exiles was
chosen from among 77 manuscripts
from 14 universities.
Ms. Buswell graduated last
November with a MFA degree in
creative writing, and is now enrolled
in the masters program in adult
education. She plans to teach writing
after she completes her studies in adult
Garden of Exiles was written as her
MFA thesis. It is set in the highlands
of Kenya, and explores one woman's
experience in the changing social
climate of Africa. The idea for the
story came while Ms. Buswell was
living in Kenya for three years in the
late 1960s.
"Many of the white people in the
community where I lived left Africa at
this time, and those who remained
experienced the feeling of not
belonging anymore. The main
character in my novel, Diana, is
caught up in this situation."
The novel centres on the emotional
struggle Diana faces when she is
pressured to leave Kenya, where she
was born and raised. Since she has
always lived in Africa, Diana feels she
belongs in the country, but her British
background alienates her from her
home as Africa becomes increasingly
less 'European'. She is forced to
confront her feelings when a school
teacher visiting the Kenya highlands
asks her to leave her home and move
to Canada with him.
Ms. Buswell, who is originally from
New Zealand, lived in England and
Africa before coming to Canada. She
earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in
English from the University of
Lethbridge, and has been invoived in
various drama groups and schools in
Between academic sessions at UBC,
Ms. Buswell works as a journalist for
City Farmer, a magazine devoted to
backyard gardeners in Vancouver.
Fine Arts student
gets Kodak award
Karen Finis, a UBC Master of Fine
Arts student in film production, has
received the Kodak Canada Student
Award for her film
The award acknowledges outstanding
student filmmaking in Canada.

program in UBC's Department of
Second-year student Rob Findley is one oj the many volunteers who devote time and energy (and usually a few late, late
nights) to keep CITR functioning. They'll be even busier after April 1, when CITR moves to FM 102.
CITR ready for real world on FM 102
"We're beginning to get some
encouraging feedbacl' from listeners —
phone calls, letters, attention from the
media. It's nice for the DJs to know
they're not just playing to a lot of
empty rooms in SUB."
These comments from Jeff Kearney,
upcoming president of CITR, UBC's
student radio station, are an
indication that better times have
arrived for the 'alternative music'
station. The main reason for the
growing interest is the fact that CITR
begins broadcasting on an FM
frequency (FM 102) on April 1.
CITR went before the CRTC last
April to compete with CJAZ, the FM
side of CKWX, for the last available
FM frequency in Vancouver. CJAZ was
applying for a second frequency in
order to solve some technical problems
the station was having with their
signal. In September, 1981, CITR was
awarded the FM licence.
CITR has been broadcasting by
three methods, all of which would
frustrate even the most devoted of
"We broadcast on campus by a
closed circuit system which serves only
the Student Union Building, and by a
carrier current which is supposed to
serve all the student residences, but in
fact only reaches a few of the lower
floors in Gage," says Mr. Kearney.
"Off campus, listeners had to hook up
their cablevision to the radio to pick
up our signal."
CITR's FM signal will serve all of
Vancouver and probably the southern
areas of the North Shore. Listeners in
outlying areas will still have to tune in
by Cable FM.
CITR is a non-commercial station
operated by approximately 60 student
volunteers. "Our first priority is to
provide information about events
happening on campus," says Mr.
Kearney. "We're sort of the audio
equivalent of The Ubyssey. But our
music and public programming is
geared for non-UBC listeners as well."
The station's programming ranges
from progressive rock, jazz, classical
music, local bands, and folk music to
local and international news, album
features, campus sports, film and
theatre reviews and radio drama.
"I think our station has something
unique to offer Vancouver audiences,"
says station manager Sonia Mysko.
"The bands on our playlist are seldom
heard on commercial stations. Because
we don't have advertising clients to
worry about, we can experiment and
take risks that commercial stations
"The kind of listeners we attract are
people who want to hear new bands,
who don't want to hear the same songs
repeated constantly and who don't
want to hear a lot of commercials."
She estimates that CITR has at least
5,000 regular listeners at present, and
hopes that the number will increase
now that the station will be easier to
pick up.
"We've had some delays because our
transmitter had to be custom built,"
she says. "But we expect to have the
transmitter at UBC by March 17
(today), and allowing a week or so to
work out any technical bugs, well be
on the air."
CITR's broadcasting hours are 8
a.m. to 1 a.m., seven days a week. So
if you're tired of hearing the same
songs every time you turn on the
radio, try the alternative —- FM 102.
Exchange agreement signed
UBC and Zhongshan University, a
major Chinese institution in Canton,
have signed a co-operative agreement
providing for the exchange of faculty
members over a two-year period.
The agreement, which continues
until 1983, will enable a scholar from
Zhongshan University to visit UBC
each year to engage in research. The
Chinese university will receive two
visiting UBC scholars for 26 man
weeks, or four scholars for up to 13
man weeks each.
The initiator of the exchange
agreement is Dr. Graham Johnson, an
associate professor of anthropology
and sociology, who said the Chinese
university enrols some 5,000 students
in basic arts and science programs and
also offers some professional
programs, including law and business
Dr. Johnson initiated discussions on
the exchange agreement with
Zhongshan University while on a
research project in China in 1979. The
following year, after discussions with
UBC's administration, he returned to
China with a colleague, Dr. Edgar
Wickberg of the history department, to
finalize the agreement.
A computer expert in Zhongshan's
Department of Mathematics has
applied to visit UBC for a year,
beginning in September, under the
Zhongshan is regarded as a so-
called "key-point" university by the
Chinese government, Dr. Johnson
said, which means it is funded at a
higher level than other institutions.
He pointed out that Zhongshan is
located in the area of China which has
traditionally supplied most of the
Chinese immigrants to Canada, and
B.C., in particular. The university is
an amalgamation of two noted
Chinese institutions       Lignan
University and Sun Yat-Sen
University, the latter named for the
Chinese statesman who became the
first president of the Chinese republic
in 1911. He died in 1925.
Dr. Johnson said that UBC's
Alumni Association and graduates of
Lignan University living in Vancouver
had contributed funds to pay for the
living expenses of visiting Zhongshan

the exchange agreement is available

president academic, in the President's
Office. program
Undergraduates carrying less than a
full program of studies may be eligible
for scholarships at UBC this fall.
At its February meeting, the
University Senate approved the
following recommendation of the
Senate Committee on Student Awards:
"That effective in the 1982-83
academic year and subject to funding
the existing University scholarship
program be extended to include
undergraduate students carrying
between 80 per cent and 100 per cent
of a full program. The scholarships
will be set at 80 per cent of the full
As the program stands now, only
full program students are eligible for
scholarships, according to the
following scale: top 3 per cent of
students, $750; next 2 per cent, $600;
next 2 per cent, $300.
Scholarships for students taking
from 80 per cent to 100 per cent of a
full program would be $600, $480, or
$240 if the same levels were applied.
Byron Hender, director of Awards
and Financial Aid, said he was
hopeful that award levels could be
increased to match the increase in
tuition fees.
Mr. Hender said that about 2,700
students are carrying between 80 per
cent and 100 per cent of a full
program this year.
Scholarships are not awarded to
students with an academic average
below 70 per cent.
Utah Mines Ltd., Island Copper
Mine, Port Hardy, has donated a 2/10
supervisory computer control system to
the Department of Mining and
Mineral Process Engineering at UBC.
Glen Andrews, manager of Island
Copper Mine, said the computer
system was employed to control
successfully a semiautogenous grinding
The system comprises: (1) a 24,000
word (16 bit word) core memory CPU;
(2) system security module; (3) high

Dr. Andy Mular, a professor in
UBCs Department of Mining and
Mineral Process Engineering, said the
Fox 2/10 system will be employed to
illustrate direct digital control and
supervisory set point control in a mini-
grinding circuit. Undergraduates will
tune control loops and write
supervisory programs themselves to
gain practical experience.
UBC will house the system in a
special control room being constructed
in the new Coal/Mineral Processing
laboratory building. Prof. Mular said
the control room will service
undergraduate and graduate student
projects as well as a fourth-year course.

Many new courses,
programs approved
UBC's Department of Anthropology
and Sociology is expanding its
offerings in the field of archeology to
accommodate expanding student
enrolment at both the undergraduate
and graduate levels.
Over the past five years, enrolment
in the seven archeology courses
currently offered by the department
has doubled, according to Prof.
Richard Pearson, who heads the
archeology program in the
anthropology and sociology
He said four new courses recently
approved by UBC's Senate constitute
an "enrichment" of the archeology
program for the growing number of
students who want general interest
courses outside their major field of
study, as well as for specialists.
Prof. Pearson said he did not
anticipate the expanded program
would require additional faculty
members. "We plan to adopt a
flexible teaching schedule that will
permit us to offer most of the courses
that will be listed in the University
calendar," he said.
The new courses approved by Senate
are a survey of prehistoric archeology
in Western Canada, a survey of the
archeology of East and Southeast Asia,
a course in applied archeology
reviewing current practices of cultural
heritage resource management and a
graduate course on comparative and
developmental studies in archeology.
These courses will be complemented
by two other new courses to be offered
in UBC's history department and
under the museology training program
offered through the University's
Museum of Anthropology.
The history department course will
introduce students to historical
archeology using evidence from
medieval and modern cultures. The
museology course, to be taught by the
professional conservator on the staff of
the Museum of Anthropology, will
deal with techniques for conserving
cultural materials.
Other courses in the field of
archeology are offered at UBC in the
Departments of Classics and Religious
The Department of Computer
Science, jointly with the Department
of Mathematics, is offering a new
program for students wishing to major
in mathematical computing. The
Major in Mathematical Computing
includes all courses required in either
the computing science or mathematics
major programs, with the exception of
Mathematics 201 and 220.
A report to the UBC Senate said it
is "anticipated that students in this
program would be certified for
graduation in both the math and
computer science departments in the
same way that students in the double
major program are presendy dealt
with, and that graduation standing
would likewise be determined in the
same way."
An Aquatic Specialization will be
offered by the School of Physical
Education and Recreation, beginning
in September.
Prerequisite to the specialization is
PHED 231 (Basic Lifesaving Skills) or
the Bronze Medallion Award of the
Royal Life Saving Society of Canada.
Students in the School of Physical
Education and Recreation who want
the specialization will be required to
take a total of 12.5 units of special
aquatic courses.

Mr. and Mrs. E.H. Lohbrunner of
Victoria recently donated more than
$10,000 to the UBC Botanical Garden
to establish a work exchange program,
and for the acquisition of plants for
the Alpine Garden.
The work exchange program will
support a person interested in
pursuing career development in the
care and maintenance of alpine plants
during a three to four month study
program at the Botanical Garden.
Criteria for the selection of a

Lock up your car
The following is a report from
students involved in the UBC Crime
Prevention Project, a group
established last summer:
"The number of thefts from
automobiles on campus is on the
increase. The University detachment
of the RCMP reports that 31 incidents
of theft from automobiles occurred
between Jan. 5 and Feb. 16 this year.
"Stereo and car parts are being
stolen. The majority of the thefts
occur in major parking areas, such as
B Lot, between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.
"The UBC Crime Prevention Project
will be patrolling these areas. We urge
everyone to lock up their vehicles and
deter theft." I'lH. Reports March IV. 1W1!
Few retirement parties in.recent years
have been as crowded as the one held in
the Garden Room of the Graduate
Student Centre on Feb. 26 to mark the
retirement of Lawrence T. "Lawrie"
Funnell, a widely known and popular
member of the UBC employed staff for
40 years.
Nearly 300 of Lawrie Funnell's
campus friends crowded into the Garden
Room for a late-afternoon reception at
which he was presented with a number
of gifts and heard tributes from longtime associates.
Prof. Lome Kersey, who retired from
electrical engineering in 1980, described
a number of "encounters" with Lawrie
Funnell in the years when both were on
campus and another tribute came from
Ken Andrews, president of CUPE Local
John McLean, former director of
employee relations at UBC, recalled that
Lawrie was a staunch union man during
his career at UBC and told the gathering
that "many of the best things in the
current union contract are there because
of Lawrie Funnell's presence at the
bargaining table."
Lawrie Funnell joined the UBC staff
in 1942 as one of nine janitors who
serviced all UBC buildings in those
days. His starting salary was $110 a
After serving in World War II ("I
volunteered for overseas duty, but they
wouldn't send me because my feet were
too flat"), he rejoined the UBC staff in
"A week after I got back," Lawrie
recalls, "Dr. Hector MacLeod, the head
of electrical engineering, called me in
and asked if I'd like to work with Sam
Smiley in the Powerhouse as a
steamfitter. In those days the
Powerhouse came under electrical
engineering, not Physical Plant."
Lawrie became a fully qualified
steamfitter after a five-year
apprenticeship that eventually led to his
becoming head steamfitter in 1954. In
1961 he transferred to Physical Plant as
head tradesman on the night shift.
In retirement, Lawrie plans to
continue his hobby of working in
stained glass,- creating' windows and'
Tiffany-lamps. "And," he adds, "I do
an awful lot of walking."
He and his wife, Margaret, have three
sons — all members of the Vancouver
Fire Department — and six

A number of individuals associated
with UBC have recently been
reappointed to institute and college
boards by the provincial government.
Lawrence T.  "Lawrie" Funnell, popular member of UBC's Department of

Memorial Scholarship — An annual
scholarship in the amount of
approximately $1,500, from the
income of a fund established under
the auspices of the Vancouver Bar
Association from contributions by
members of the bench and bar, has
been established to honor the memory
of Walter Kirke Smith, late Justice of
the Supreme Court of British
Columbia. Mr. Justice Kirke Smith

Young and old flocked to UBC by the thousands March 12 and 13 for one of
the most successful Open Houses ever held. Here, visitors have a look at
underseas specimen table in zoology lab.
25 years of progress computed
On a wall on the top floor of the
Computing Centre is a sign that says:
UBC's first computer, the Alwac III-E,
began operation here in March, 1957.
You don't have to have a brain —
or a reasonable mechanical facsimile
that computes in nanoseconds — to
figure out that this month is the 25th
anniversary of the Computing Centre.
Well, not quite the Computing Centre
itself. UBC's first computer seems
Precambrian by today's standards.
Consider this. Anyone wandering
into the Bookstore can buy a pocket
calculator for less than $20 that is
more powerful than UBC's first
Or this. The Amdahl V/8 computer in
the Computing Centre today is 25,000
times more powerful than the original
Alwac. True, today's computer cost
$2.5 million compared with the measely
$65,000 for the computer 25 years ago.
But today's computer is so much more
powerful and quick that it is about 700
times more efficient per unit of cost.
The original computer was housed in
a cabinet on casters in a tiny room of
less than 400 square feet, a far cry from
the air conditioned vastness of the
Computing Centre today. It had one
terminal — a modified manual
typewriter, and its display screen was an
adapted oscilliscope.
Solid state technology hadn't been
invented and the computer glowed with
row upon row of vacuum tubes similar
to those in old radios and television
It had 41 users within the first six
months of installation and was operated
by three people. The machine we have
today has 10,000 users and is staffed by
115 people.
The task of determining what could
be done with a computer and whether
the University should have one was
given to "The Automation Committee"
of the University. Public apprehension
concerning computers today is nothing
like the fear and suspicion about in
Computing Centre director ai
Fowler says his own apprehension for
the industry is because of a growing
lack of standards. "It could be the
deathknell of the computer," he says.
Software is designed around certain
computer languages. The number of
languages being made available is
increasing almost as quickly as
hardware. Even relatively cheap microprocessors, says Mr. Fowler, are being
manufactured with their own unique
languages. And in many instances, users
are altering the languages even further
for their own purposes.
Mr. Fowler, who is president of the
Canadian Information Processing
Society, fears the result will be a tower
of Babel. Few computer users will be
able to use other computers and
programs to run their work. At the same
time as computer hardware becomes
even more commonplace, portability of
programs will decrease.
He says there is no sign of the
situation improving.

second in Canada and the first west of

to Alumni
UBC's administration and its Alumni
Association have reached agreement on
a plan to consolidate all fund-raising
activities in the private sector.
President Douglas T. Kenny has
announced that effective immediately
the fund-raising functions of the
University Resources Council, until now
a division of the President's Office,
would be transferred to the Alumni
Under the agreement, the Alumni
Association will co-operate with the
President's Office in the co-ordination
of all fund-raising activities in the
private sector. Up until now, the
association has been responsible only
for the operations of the Alumni Fund,
which receives and processes annual
gifts to the University from graduates.
The Resources Council, an outgrowth
of fund drives in the 1950s and 1960s to
raise money for the construction of new
campus buildings, has concentrated on
raising funds from corporations and
foundations for a wide range of UBC
activities, including research and student
The council also has a Wills and
Bequests Committee, which prepares
and communicates information to
lawyers on ways in which they can
advise clients wishing to make bequests
to the University.
"In the last fiscal year," President
Kenny said, "the University received
more than $10 million from graduates
and other individuals, corporations and
foundations for a variety of University
"This support is a clear indication of
the confidence in the private sector for
the quality of UBC's academic
programs and its faculty members and
students. Support from the private sector
will become even more important in the
years ahead as the- University adjusts to
the pressures of retrenchment and
Under the new arrangement for fund-
raising, overall direction of the
Resources Council and the Alumni Fund
will be the responsibility of Dr. Peter
Jones, executive director of the Alumni
Association. Day-to-day responsibilities
of both organizations will be handled by
Allan Holender, director of the
association's Alumni Fund.
Dr. Jones said the agreement reached
with the University envisages a
revitalized Resources Council that
would provide consulting and other
support services for University fund-
raising and explore new methods of
attracting private-sector funds. mc Repamwiafcu n, tam,
17-year research project nears completion
A research team at the University of
British Columbia is rapidly nearing
completion of a 17-year project that
will close a major gap in knowledge
about the great 19th century German
composer Johannes Brahms.
Scheduled for publication in 1983 to
mark the 150th anniversary of
Brahms's birth is the first thematic
catalogue of the composer's entire
musical output, which included every
major musical genre except opera.
The catalogue, which will run to
nearly 1,000 pages, is the fruit of
almost two decades of intensive
research by the late Prof. Donald
McCorkle, former head of UBC's
music department, and his wife,
Margit, who carried on the Brahms
project following her husband's sudden
death from a heart attack in 1978.
Mrs. McCorkle said the catalogue,
in addition to being of major interest'
to music scholars and students, will
also be a source of information for
writers of record liner notes and
concert programs, music critics,
librarians and archivists.
Auction houses, antiquarian
booksellers and collectors will also find
the catalogue useful because of the
wealth of information it will contain
about the manuscripts of Brahms's
music — either those in the composer's
own hand (called autographs) or those
prepared by professional copyists
under Brahms's supervision, and the
editions published during the
composer's lifetime (referred to as
original editions).
A thematic catalogue is basically a
bibliography — a listing — of
everything written by a particular
composer, Mrs. McCorkle explained.
In addition to reproducing the
opening bars of each composition (in
the same way that a literary
bibliographer will prepare an index of
the first lines of a poet's works), a
thematic catalogue also provides
details related to the creation of each
work (where and when it was
composed), information on the work's
first performance (when, where and
who performed it) and the
circumstances of its publication during
Brahms's lifetime (when, where and
who published it).
The catalogue will also contain a
physical description of all the known
manuscripts written in Brahms's own
hand or those prepared by authorized
copyists and their locations. Added to
this will be a bibliographic description
of the original editions of each
composition, which will enable
scholars and collectors to compare the
first with subsequent editions for
content and variations.
The long road leading to
publication of the catalogue began in
1965. when Mrs. McCorkle's husband
agreed to teach a graduate seminar on
Brahms at the University of Maryland,
where he was then a faculty member.
"When my husband began research
in preparation' for the seminar," Mrs.
McCorkle said, "he was surprised to
find there was no thematic catalogue
for Brahms analagous to the ones in
existence for the music of Bach,
Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert.
Further investigation showed that the
location of most of Brahms's
manuscripts wasn't even documented."
Tradition also had it that Brahms
had destroyed nearly all evidence of
his creative process during his lifetime

and what did exist wasn't very
interesting for scholarly purposes.
Prof. McCorkle demolished that
notion by visiting the Library of
Congress in nearby Washington, D.C.,
which holds a substantial number of
Brahms's manuscripts.
"It was apparent to him that the
significance of the manuscripts had
been grossly underestimated," Mrs.
McCorkle said.
Initially, she said, the project was
confined to locating all Brahms's
manuscripts, which meant visits to a
number of U.S. centres, and to
archives and libraries in Europe,
chiefly in Vienna and Hamburg.
"Nearly two-thirds of Brahms's
manuscripts are held by half a dozen
major institutions in the U.S., Austria
and West Germany," said Mrs.
McCorkle, "and the balance are in
libraries and archives or in private
hands in the U.S., Great Britain and a
number of European countries, some
behind the Iron Curtain." Just
recendy, she adds, a cache of
Brahms's manuscripts has turned up in
On the whole, she adds, access to
archive collections was not a problem,
provided the researchers had
established their credentials as serious
scholars and obtained an introduction
to the institutions holding the
The response of private collectors
varied from full co-operation by
individuals who were proud of their
manuscript collections to a few who
refused assistance under any
circumstances for one reason or
Over the years, the McCorkles have
documented the location of 95 per
cent of Brahms's manuscripts known
to be in existence. In cases where an
autograph or an authorized copy of
the manuscript doesn't exist, the first
published version must then serve as
the most authoritative document for
validating the text.
Mrs. McCorkle feels, however, that
editions published in Brahms's lifetime
(1833-1897) are fairly reliable, even
when autographs and authorized
copies are lost.
"Brahms," she said, "wrote music
for publication, unlike earlier
composers such as Mozart, who was
more concerned with relations with his
patrons and whose works were often
performed privately before relatively
small audiences.
"Brahms wrote for a larger public
and because he had published in his
lifetime almost everything he wished,
he was able to work closely with the
publishers to ensure that the original
editions of bis works were quite
"From the few surviving galley
proofs with corrections in his own
handwriting, as well as from the
extensive correspondence with his
publishers, we know that he had a lot
of control over his published works."
The fact that some autograph and
authorized copies of Brahms's music
have disappeared is not surprising,
Mrs. McCorkle said. "Those
manuscripts sent to the publishers to
be used as engraver's models were
seldom returned to him. Other
manuscripts he gave away to friends as
gifts or to individuals to whom they
were dedicated. And inevitably, some
of the manuscripts have disappeared
as the result of the disruptions of two
world wars in Europe."
At the time of his death in 1978, six
years after he joined the UBC faculty.
Prof. McCorkle and his wife had
located three-quarters of Brahms's
manuscripts still extant and a contract
was being negotiated to produce the
thematic catalogue.
Since 1978, Mrs. McCorkle has
searched out the balance of the
manuscripts, collected bibliographic
information and written the individual
entries for the catalogue. These tasks,
plus negotiations with her German
publisher, mean extensive travelling to
the eastern U.S. and Europe each
Mrs. McCorkle settled on a German
publisher — G. Henle Verlag of
Munich — primarily because they had
experience in publishing thematic
catalogues, having produced similar
volumes on Beethoven and Chopin.
Although the text of the book will
be in German, the publisher has
agreed to print extensive prefatory
material, instructions for the use of
the catalogue and an extensive glossary-
in both English and German, with the
result that most people will be able to
find their way around in it.
Mrs. McCorkle is generous in her
praise of the Canada Council and the
Social Sciences and Humanities
Research Council of Canada for their
support of the project over the years.
"I think Canadians can be proud of
the fact that they have granting
agencies with the breadth of vision to
see that the Brahms project would be
an important contribution of
knowledge," she said.
The grants have primarily been used
to pay the salaries of two research
assistants. (Mrs. McCorkle herself
holds an appointment as a research
associate in the UBC music
Her current assistants are Thomas
Quigley, a graduate of UBC's School
of Librarianship who has done much
of the bibliographic work associated
with the project, and Wiltrud Martin,
a native of Germany who helps
prepare the German-language entries
for publication.
Quite apart from being named as
the authors of the catalogue, the
McCorkles will have their imprint on
the volume in one other significant

numbers attached to them.
There is clearly precedent for this.
The "K" numbers attached to all of
Mozart's compositions stand for the
name Ludwig Ritter von Kochel, who
compiled the catalogue of Mozart's
works published in 1862.
The research team headed by Mrs.
McCorkle spends about eight hours a
day, five days a week working on the
catalogue. Mrs. McCorkle said she
spends much of her time on weekends
on correspondence connected with the
"But we're right on schedule in the
production of the manuscript," she
said. "I expect to send it off to
