Summer workloads are heavier
Students enrolled in UBC's 1982 spring
and summer sessions have taken on heavier
academic workloads than in the past.
Dr. Norman Watt, director of UBC's
extra-sessional studies office, said the
number of students registered in the 1982
spring and summer sessions rose only
slightly over last year's figures, but there is
a marked increase in the number of units
taken per student.
"There are a lot of regular, winter-
Board hears Julius Kane appeal
A decision by UBC's Board of Governors
on an appeal by Prof. Julius Kane against
the 18-month suspension without pay and
benefits imposed on March 1, 1982 will not
be made public until Dr. Kane and UBC
president Dr. Douglas Kenny have been
informed of the decision in writing.
The suspension, which runs until Aug.
31, 1983, was imposed by President Kenny
on the recommendation of a three-member
hearing committee established under the
terms of the University's agreement with its
Faculty Association on the terms and
conditions of employment.
Prof. Kane was entitled to appeal the
president's action under Section 57 (3) of
the University Act.
The Board heard Prof. Kane's appeal at
its regular meeting yesterday (July 6).
session students attending the spring and
summer sessions this year," said Dr. Watt.
"Many of them are trying to accelerate
their programs, and some students are
continuing their studies over the summer
because they can't find jobs."
More than 4,000 students are enrolled in
some 350 summer session courses, which
began Monday and continue until Aug. 14.
Enrolment for the 1982 spring session
totalled 3,600 students, an increase of
about 70 students over last year.
The Summer Session Association, headed
by Cindy Lam and Michael Grice, has a
continuing series of events planned for
people on campus in July and August. The
popular Summer Screen and Summer
Sounds series are among the activities
being organized.
For information about summer activities,
check bulletin boards around campus, or
drop by the Summer Session Association
office in room 100A on the main floor of
the Student Union Building. Events will
also be listed in the "UBC Calendar"
section of this paper, which will appear on
July 21 and Aug. 4.
to cancer
In the midst of debate over methods to
retrieve universities and the country from
economic stagnation, one area of UBC life
continues to prosper.
Research is a growth industry at UBC.
Recent events underline the continuing
growth of quality among UBC faculty and
their success in winning, in competition
with other universities, major research
grants from outside agencies.
Profs. Robert Miller and Douglas
Kilburn have received a $1 million grant
from the Terry Fox special initiatives
program designed to stimulate innovative
cancer research.
Their research will aim at enhancing the
biochemical signals which activate the "
body's immune system to destroy invading
cells. Part of the reason the body's immune
system fails to effectively deal with cancer
cells is presumably because the biochemical
signals or "helper factors" aren't strong
enough to turn on the defence system.
The team plans to use gene cloning to
produce quantities of helper factors large
enough for their effectiveness to be tested
in animal trials.
Dr. Miller is head of UBC's microbiology
department and is also a professor in the
medical genetics department. Dr. Kilburn
is a professor in UBC's microbiology
They already have a sound track record
in gene cloning. A few months ago they
successfully cloned a gene for an enzyme
which will convert renewable waste
products such as sawdust and straw into
the sugar glucose. The glucose could then
be fermented into plastics and alcohol for
use as a fuel. Their Terry Fox special
initiatives grant is the only one to be issued
this year.
In another recent development   the
Medical Research Council (MRC), the
premier funding agency for meilical
research in Canada, concluded, a week-long
visit to UBC by announcing four new areas
of priority for council funding.
Special consideration will be given by the
council to applications from Canadian
universities for funding in biotechnology
(manipulation of genetic material), and for
use of ultra-sophisticated equipment to
produce images of what is going on inside
the human body. The council will also
fund a series of special conferences to
increase the effectiveness of research in
treating disease and it will provide five-
year, full-time research positions within

the four areas of priority. Dr. Louis
Simonovitch, council member and
president of the National Cancer Institute
of Canada, praised UBC's progress in
biotechnology. He singled out Prof.

Pulleyblank wins Biely prize
Few of man's accomplishments are more
wrapped in mystery than the creation of
language, the chief means which humans
have for expressing their thoughts and
feelings and something most people take
for granted.
Interest in how man went about creating
language has expanded enormously in
recent years and one of the frontier
thinkers in the field is Prof. Edwin
Pulleyblank of the Department of Asian
Studies, who has been named the winner of
UBC's top research prize for 1982.
As the recipient of the $1,000 Prof.
Jacob Biely Faculty Research Prize, Prof.
Pulleyblank is being honored for more than
35 years of contributions to the disciplines
of Chinese history and linguistics, fields in
which he has a reputation as one of the
world's leading scholars.
Prof. Pulleyblank's interest in the origin
of language is an outgrowth of his research
on Chinese linguistics, particularly his
pioneering studies in reconstructing the
pronunciation of ancient Chinese, which he
began while professor of Chinese at
Cambridge University in England from
1953 to 1966.
A native of Calgary, where he was born
almost 60 years ago, Prof. Pulleyblank
began his academic career at the University
of Alberta, where he received his Bachelor
of Arts degree with honors in classics in
After war work with the National
Research Council in Ottawa and in
England, he was awarded a Chinese
government scholarship for study at the
University of London, where he received
his Doctor of Philosophy degree in Chinese
history in 1951.
Four years later, his Ph.D. thesis was
published by Oxford University Press under
the title The Background of the Rebellion
of An Lu-shan.
This volume has been described as a
seminal work on the T'ang dynasty, which
ruled China from the 7th to the 9th
century A.D. and which is regarded as one
of the highpoints of Chinese history, both
in terms of imperial power and culture.
The An Lu-shan rebellion occurred in
the middle of the T'ang dynasty and
divides it in two. An Lu-shan, it turns out,
was a foreigner of mixed Iranian and
Turkish extraction, which led Prof.
Pulleyblank to take a more than passing
interest in foreign connections and
influences in ancient China.
His involvement in Chinese linguistics
resulted from a combination of teaching
the language and problems associated with
identifying names in ancient Chinese
One of the main problems he's tackled
over the years is reconstructing the way in
which Chinese was pronounced in ancient
times. He's been able to make a good deal
of progress in this area by pouring over
rhyming dictionaries published in China
from 600 A.D. on.
The Chinese used rhyme in their poetry
and the ancient dictionaries give the
sounds used to pronounce words which
sounded similar but which had totally
different meanings.
Still highly problematical is any attempt
to reconstruct pronunciation in, say the
time of Confucius (500 B.C.) or the
beginnings of Chinese civilization more
than 1000 years earlier.
Prof. Pulleyblank plans to continue his
attempts to reconstruct the pronunciation
of Chinese earlier than the T'ang dynasty
because of the possibilities that exist for
linking Chinese to other languages, such as'
the group known as Indo-European, which
includes English.
The chances of linking Chinese to other
languages will be significantly improved if
scholars like Prof. Pulleyblank can
successfully reconstruct the pronunciation
of the language as far back as the second
millenium B.C.
"We know that Chinese is related to
Burmese and Tibetan," he says, "and I
have a strong suspicion that Chinese is
related to Indo-European languages.
"That may sound far-fetched when you
compare modern Chinese to any Indo-
European language, but the kind of
framework that I have reconstructed for
early Chinese and the kind of structure one
encounters in the Indo-European languages
have some striking similarities. There are
individual words that one can connect in
both languages.
"When the Chinese first moved into
Central Asia in the second century B.C.,
they encountered the Tocharians, a now
extinct people who spoke an Indo-
European language. Though we do not yet
know how long the Tocharians had been
there, there is no reason to believe they
were recent arrivals and it is quite likely
that the Chinese and Indo-Europeans had
been neighbours for a very long time."
All of this scholarly activity has led Prof.
Pulleyblank to speculate on how man came
to invent language.
His interests lie in an area that
academics describe as the "origin of duality
Edwin Pulleyblank
of patterning in language," which Prof.
Pulleyblank says boils down to the idea
that you can use a limited number of
sounds which are organized to express
an unlimited number of words.
"If you begin by imagining the easiest
and most natural way of inventing
language," says Prof. Pulleyblank, "it
seems logical to assume that man first
invented a sound that corresponded to a
whole word, rather than to part of a word.'
"That's what the Chinese did in terms of
writing their language. They invented
characters, pictures of a whole word. I've
been speculating on how one gets from
using sounds that represented ideas to
sounds that represented only parts of
"My theory is that man started with
individual sounds, but they were all
consonants. To take a simple example, the
consonant sound shhhh' means keep quiet.
But if you link two "shhhh's" with the
vowel,   u,' you get shush, which is a word
that also means keep quiet.
"So the theory, to put it crudely, is that
you start with consonants and derive the
vowels as connectors. In a more
sophisticated form the hypothesis, which is
derived from my research in historical
linguistics, is about the nature of the
distinctive features which are used in all
languages to differentiate the sounds that
form words."
Prof. Pulleyblank last year gave a paper
outlining his theory to a conference on the
origin of language sponsored by UNESCO.
He fully expects that when the conference
proceedings are published he'll have plenty
of supporting — and dissenting — views to
But that, he hastens to add, is how ideas
are tested, revised and, eventually,
confirmed in academic circles.
Prof. Pulleyblank is the 13th winner of
the Biely prize, which was first awarded in
1969. It was established by George Biely, a
well-known figure in the B.C. construction
industry, in honor of his brother, Prof.
Jacob Biely, an internationally-known
poultry scientist whose association with
UBC spanned half a century and who died
in June, 1981.
Space & AV reorganized
UBC has appointed a new director of
audio-visual services and reorganized the
former Department of Space and Audio-

department. Prof. Smith, he said, could
work at Harvard, M.I.T., or any other
prestigious university he wanted and
doubtlessly received job offers routinely.
MRC president Dr. Pierre Bois, in
announcing the new areas of support,
referred to two new methods of obtaining
three-dimensional images which for the
first time will show what is happening
inside the human body at a microscopic
level. UBC is already well on its way to
becoming the leading centre in Canada in
the use of the two devices — positron
emission tomograph and nuclear magnetic
resonance scanners.
UBC faculty are also succeeding in
attracting research funds from the Natural
Sciences and Engineering Research Council
(NSERC), the federal cousin of the MRC.
Grants to UBC professors from NSERC
in 1982-83 will total $11.6 million, an
increase of almost 20 per cent.
Two months ago UBC, in competition
with more than 60 other universities across
Canada, took three of eight medals
awarded this year by the Royal Society of
Canada for outstanding discoveries during
the last 10 years.
The total amount of research funds from
all sources for the University in 1981-82
was $44.9 million, an increase of more
than 11 per cent from $39.3 million for the
previous year.
Visual Services.
Effective July 1, Ian T.W. Franks,
former coordinator of A-V Services in the
Faculty of Education, became director of
audio-visual services for the University.
In his new post, Mr. Franks will
supervise the graphics, photography,
productions and equipment rentals and
repairs sections of the former space and
A-V services department, which continues
to occupy space on the third floor of the
Library Processing Centre.
He will also co-ordinate campus activities
initiated by faculty members for the
Knowledge Network of the West (KNOW),
which has its headquarters in the same
The space-booking function formerly
assigned to the department has now been
moved to the Registrar's Office in the
General Services Administration Building
(rooms 208 and 210).
Campus phone numbers for space
bookings listed in the yellow pages of
UBC's telephone directory under Space and
A/V Services remain the same, except for
bookings for Cecil Green Park. These are
now handled by the UBC Alumni
Association (local 3313).
Other wrinkles involved in the
reorganization of the department are:
The space inventory function has been
assigned to the Office of Institutional
Analysis and Planning (local 5611); and
The University's Film Library will
remain in its present quarters on the third
floor of the Library Processing Centre but
is now part of the UBC library system.
CO. "Chuck" Brawner, associate
professor of Mining and Mineral Process
Engineering, is the first Canadian to
receive the Distinguished Member Award
of the Society of Mining Engineers, a
constituent society of the American
Institute of Mining, Metallurgical and
Petroleum Engineers.
The award goes to a select few who have
distinguished themselves by outstanding
contributions to the technology or
professional activities of the society. Mr.
Brawner will be installed at meetings of thi
SME scheduled for Sept. 9 in Honolulu.
Dr. Christopher Friedrichs of the UBC
history depaitment was awarded the
Wallace K. Ferguson Prize, which carries
with it a cash prize of $2,000, at meetings
of the Canadian Historical Association in
Ottawa in June.
The prize is for an outstanding scholarly
book in a field of history other than
Canadian published in the two-year period
Jan. 1, 1979 to December 31, 1980. Dr.
Friedrichs received the award for his book,
Urban Society in the Age of War:
Nordlingen, 1580-1720, published by
Princeton University Press in 1979.
The new president of the Classical
Association of Canada is Prof. J. Allan
Evans of UBC's Department of Classics. He
was elected at the association's annual
meeting early in June in Ottawa.
Norman Young, a UBC graduate who
has been a member of the Department of
Theatre since 1960, has been named to the
Canada Council, which makes grants to
support the arts in Canada.
Mr. Young, who has just retired as
chairman of the B.C. Arts Board, has a
long list of credits in the arts in this
province. He is executive director of the
B.C. Festival of the Arts and chairman of
the Vancouver Civic Theatres Board which
manages the Orpheum and the Queen
Elizabeth Theatre and Playhouse. He's also
a member of the City of Vancouver's 1986
Centennial Commission.
Two graduate students in the Faculty of
Commerce have been honored by
professional organizations.
Patricia Brennan, a Ph.D. student,
received the "Best Student Paper" award in
the finance division of the Administrative
Sciences Association of Canada in Ottawa
in May. Her paper was entitled A Test of
the Arbitrage Pricing Theory.
Tom Muller, who was awarded a Ph.D.
degree by UBC at Spring Congregation in
May, won two prizes in the annual
Administrative Sciences Association of
Canada doctoral competition for his
dissertation Information Load at the Point
of Purchase: Extending the Research.
ASAC conferred on him its award of
excellence and his second distinction was
the award of excellence of Publicite Foster
(Quebec) Ltee.
Marjorie D. Hamilton, a secretary in
UBC's Faculty of Law, retired on May 31
after 20 years as a member of the
University's support staff. She joined UBC
in 1962 as a secretary in the office of inter-
faculty affairs and subsequently worked for
the School of Nursing, the personnel
department and the Centre for Continuing
Education before joining the law faculty in
1976. UBC Reports July 7, 1982
Block B of UBC's basic medical sciences buildings is now known as the
Friedman Building, in honor of Dr. Sydney Friedman, the first professor
appointed to UBC's medical school when it was organized in 1950 and head of
the Department of Anatomy until his retirement from administrative duties in
1981. Appropriately, the building houses the department he headed for more
than 30 years and where he still remains active as a teacher and researcher. He
was recently honored by the Canadian Association of Anatomists, which
presented to him the J.C. B. Grant Award "in recognition of meritorious service
and outstanding scholarly accomplishments in the field of anatomical sciences. "
Two former faculty die
Two former UBC faculty members died
in June.
Dr. Brock M. Fahrni, former director of
UBC's School of Rehabilitation Medicine,

Prof. Moran, who joined the UBC
faculty in 1969, was also associate dean in
the Faculty of Graduate Studies.
A native of New Orleans who had
become a Canadian citizen, Prof. Moran
was a graduate of the University of Texas,
where he received his Bachelor and Master
of Arts and Ph.D. degrees.
He also taught at the University of Texas
for a total of 12 years until 1969, when he
came to UBC. His research field was
cognitive development and he was the
author or co-author of some 50
publications in the field.
Prof. Moran is survived by his wife,
Frances, a son and three daughters.
Remembrance gifts to the Cancer Control
Clinic, 2656 Heather St., Vancouver, have

Manitoba and took his M.D. degree from
the University of Manitoba in 1938. He did
his residency at VGH and did postgraduate
study at the Mayo Clinic and at the
National Hospital in London.
He joined UBC's Faculty of Medicine in
1952 and was appointed associate professor
in the faculty in 1960 to establish the
School of Rehabilitation Medicine. The
school was formed the next year and Dr.
Fahrni was its first director. While at UBC

Board votes $500,000
for more student aid
President Dave Frank and vice-president
Cliff Stewart of the Alma Mater Society
asked the Board of Governors Tuesday
(July 6) for $500,000 in additional student
aid, and got what they asked for.
The Board voted that $250,000 be made
available immediately to augment the
Employment Opportunities for Youth
Program (formerly the Youth Employment
Program) and that $250,000 be used to
hire students under the Work Study
Program in the 1982  83 winter session.
Under this program, students are allowed
to work a maximum of ten hours a week.
In approving the $500,000 increase in
student aid, the Board also decided that
any money not used in either of the work
programs be used to provide additional
The Board emphasized, however, that
the $500,000 is non-recurring money, to be
used only for the 1982 83 year.
In addition to the $500,000, the Board
also directed that the director of financial
aid "provide a report to the president after
registration has been completed in
September, 1982, for the president's
assessment, review and recommendation to
the Board as to whether further funding
should be provided to assist needy students
in the second term of the winter session
The $500,000 increase in aid to students
follows an earlier increase this year of close
to $1 million. When tuition fees were
increased in January, the Board of
Governors voted to put $921,000 into a
student bursary fund.
The appearance of Frank and Stewart
before the Board of Governors followed a
June 18 letter from the AMS to the Board
in which concern was expressed because of
the surplus announced by the University at
the end of the 1980  81 fiscal year.
In addition to the request for more
student aid, the letter called for retrenched
funds to be returned to faculties, that
efforts be made to reinstate employees who
lost their jobs because of financial
cutbacks, that a study be made of student
accessibility to UBC, that improved
planning be implemented, and that tuition
fees be frozen at the 1982 83 level for at
least one year.
In making his case for improved funding
for the Work Study Program, Stewart
noted that UBC last year hired only 150
students, all of them in the library, at a
cost of $93,000. He said 301 students were
hired under the same program at the
University of Victoria.
Stewart asked that $30,000 of the
$250,000 in additional funding be used for
a widespread advertising program to let
students know that more part-time jobs
would be available.
He noted that as of the beginning of July
there were 1,200 more applicants for
student aid than there were last year.
Top coaches
spend time
on campus
The athletic department s new coach in
residence program began on June 19 when
former Soviet national hockey coach.
Anatoly Tarasov, and Soviet head of player
development, Yuri Korolev, arrived at
UBC for a two week stay.
The visit is part of the three-year,
$45,000 program sponsored by Molson
Breweries which has as its intention to
bring to British Columbia world-class
coaches in a variety of sports.
To oversee the project. Dr. Bob
Hindmarch, executive director of Athletics
and Sport Services, has appointed
Thunderbird rugby coach Donn Spence as
director of the program and has indicated
that three or four such coaching
delegations will be visiting UBC each year.
"Donn Spence has many international
and provincial sports contacts and he'll'be
in charge of bringing in and setting up the
itineraries of the incoming personalities,"
Dr. Hindmarch said.
"Historically, Canadian universities have
been the centre of these types of programs
and it is one of our policies to encourage
excellence in sports development in British
Columbia. To that end, we are very
thankful for the assistance and
commitment Molson's has made to make
this sport program a success."
During their two-week stay, Tarasov and
Korolev gave lectures and seminars in
Vancouver and around the province in
association with the British Columbia
Amateur Hockey Association.
The next installment of the coach-in-
residence program is expected to see a
hockey delegation from Czechoslovakia
come to UBC in September or October.
A group describing themselves as "old Commerce Undergraduate Society hacks"
recently honored retiring commerce professor Colin Gourlay (third from right in
front row) at a University Club luncheon. Amid a lot of good-natured bantering
and reminiscing, the former students presented a set of wine glasses to Prof.
Gourlay, whose teaching and administrative career at UBC spanned 33 years. UBC Reports July 7, 1982
