On| df^the gCEJtest ch^fHeJIges facing education iisAhe ne<k, decade will
be to Vnairjtain the^Jht«rity of a
liberal aft^..educatiSi^i<f the face of
demands foV^mo»5^rofessional and
vocational education, UBC president
Douglas Kenny said last night (Nov.
"Economic success may appear to
come through vocational specialization," Dr. Kenny told the Canadian
Club of New Westminster and the
Fraser Valley, "but if our civilization is
to endure, it must be through the
realization that there is more to life
than the gross national product."
Dr. Kenny described students as
one of the oldest and most sensitive
consumer movements of all time, and
than gross national product — Kenny
he said they know and understand
that an increasingly complex society is
making advanced education a
necessary personal investment.
"We must have more scientists, we
must have more skilled technicians,
more professionals, if this country is
going to compete in the world
marketplace of ideas. Yet we must not
allow our young people to become
duped into believing that success in
life necessarily comes through professional specializations."
The UBC president said a liberal
education is even more crucial
because of the inroads on our lives
made by science and technology.
"Is society going to set the goals for
technology, or are we going to allow
technology to set the goals for
society?"
Dr. Kenny said both sides could
learn from mission-oriented research
conducted on a university campus and
said the industrial research parks to be
established at the three B.C. universities were a good example of this.
"The mere fact that this new
research presence is there will force
the liberal arts community to focus on
and understand its activities," he said.
"In fact, I strongly suspect that
those firms which do locate their
research in the Discovery Parks will be
stealing a step on their competitors by
getting a much more perceptive idea
about the directions society wants
technological research to follow."

"Is it ticking?" asks Tony Galloway,
a 27-year UBC employee who retired
recently as superintendent of new
construction. The contents of the
box turned out to be a large mantel
clock for his new retirement home.
Alison Law, left, and Ruth Pearcey, two long-time members of the Registrar's
Office and familiar faces on campus,' retired last week after serving UBC for a
combined total of 56 years. Both have new ventures in mind for the future.
Three long-time UBC employees retire
Friends, colleagues and representatives of most of B.C.'s major construction companies and architectural
firms gathered in UBC's Graduate
Student Centre recently to pay tribute
to Tony Galloway, a well-known campus figure who has retired from the
post of superintendent of new construction at UBC.
Since 1956, when he was appointed
clerk of works for new construction,
Tony "Galloway has served as the
liaison man between the University
and theconstruction companies which
were awarded contracts for new UBC
buildings.
In this capacity he was responsible
for ensuring that contracting firms
constructed new buildings according
•to architect's specifications. Only
when Tony Galloway signified that the
work had been completed satisfactorily would the contractor be paid.
Born in Belfast, Northern Ireland,
Tony Galloway joined the Department
of Physical Plant in 1952 as a
carpenter after serving for six years
with the Royal Engineers. Four years
later,  in   1956,  he became clerk of
works for new construction. In the ensuing years he's had a number of job
titles — supervisor of new construction
from 1963 to 1967, assistant
superintendent of new construction
from 1967 to 1978 and, laterally,
superintendent of new construction.
With his wife, Mary, Mr. Galloway
has retired to the Okanagan town of
Summerland, where he recently built
a retirement home.
"The work I can leave behind
without regret," said Ruth Pearcey,
on her last day of work at UBC before
retirement, "but it's the people that
I'm going to miss."
Mrs. Pearcey, administrative assistant in the Registrar's Office, retired
from UBC Oct. 31 after more than 23
years here. She joined the Registrar's
Office in 1956 as secretary to the
registrar, when the office was housed
in what is now known as the Old Administration Building. Also in the
building at that time were the purchasing department, the finance
department, the data processing centre and a branch of the Bank of Mon
treal, which should indicate how the
University has grown.
Besides the physical changes at
UBC, Mrs. Pearcey has also seen
changes in the student body. "There's
a lot more older students now," she
notes, and that gives her courage for
her next venture after retirement.
She's going to come back to UBC as a
student.
She had been out of high school
three years when she first was a student at UBC. "But my first year I
discovered the Players' Club, and
came out of the year with only nine
units."
Her recent trip to Iran and Turkey
sparked in her an interest in ancient
history, and that's what she hopes to
study at UBC next spring. She'll be
taking credit courses, not just courses
for interest, though, because, as she
says, "I need the commitment."
Another long-time member of the
Registrar's Office staff retired Nov. 1.
Alison Law, an admissions officer for
the University, left last Thursday after

The UBC president said he was convinced the public supported his
university's increasingly stiffer entrance requirements.
"There is no question but that
citizens expect our universities to be
efficiently run while providing
academic excellence," he said.
Universities will be in trouble if they
ever forget those two expectations."
Dr. Kenny said a liberal education
is designed to liberate the mind, with
the goal of preparing the more able
for leadership and the less able for intelligent citizenship.
"The human mind, when it looks
beyond the short term, remains the
one resource that will not fail us," he
said.
UBC Board
to counter
UCBC report
UBC's Board of Governors has
voted to counter accusations by the
Universities Council of B.C. that the
University is not making efficient use
of public funds.
The Board voted Tuesday to ask its
chairman, Leslie Peterson, to write to
the Council after UBC's president, Dr.
Douglas Kenny, commented for nearly 15 minutes on UBC's annual report
to the provincial government, which
included funding recommendations
for the current fiscal year.
In its report to the provincial
government the Council said that
while it appreciated the difficulties the
universities face in taking appropriate
action "to meet the widespread demand for the greater efficiency in the
use of all public funds, it has been
presented with only slight evidence of
the need to do so by the University of
British Columbia "
President Kenny told the Board
that the Council has received a great
deal more than "slight evidence" from
UBC about the efficient use of public
funds.
The Council, he said, had been
made aware of the discrepancies between the perceived needs of the
universities and what they actually
receive in terms of annual operating
grants and that the percentage increase received by the universities was
not equal to the rate of inflation.
The Council, he continued, was
also well aware that the university
system was highly labor intensive and
that salary increases were subject to
bargaining under collective
agreements.
He said UBC had not received
funds to enable it to maintain library
purchases or to offset the costs of increased supplies resulting from inflation and the declining value of the
Canadian dollar.
President Kenny continued that the
Council had received evidence that
UBC is actually underfunded and that
the inequitable distribution of the annual operating grant was "detrimental
to this University."
He said the Council was aware of
the way in which UBC allocated its
resources and that for the past six
years UBC had ranked first in a list of
the 23 largest Canadian universities in
terms of the percentage of money
allocated for academic purposes and
last in terms of the percentage of
funds allocated for administration.
UCBC, the president said, also
knew that over the three fiscal years
from 1976-77 to 1978-79 UBC had
removed a total of $3,804,401 from its
continuing operating costs.
He termed the Council's statement
"unfortunate" and said it could have
an effect on funding for the next fiscal
year.
Mr. Peterson will include evidence
of UBC's efficient use of funds in his
letter to the Universities Council. UBCreports

W5 show on
foreigners
brings protest
A recent CTV program investigating the presence of foreign
students in Canada contained many
"distortions and inaccuracies," the
Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (AUCC) has charged.
A strong protest has been filed by
the AUCC with the president of CTV
network and the producers of its " W5"
show. The program in question was
aired Sept. SO.
Host Helen Hutchison claimed that
"thousands of Canadians are being
kept out of our universities by foreign
students," citing such subjects as
engineering, medicine, pharmacy,
and computer science.
"The program was built around a
particular case which was entirely unfounded, "stated Alan Earp, president
of Brock University (St. Catharines)
and current president of the AUCC
Against a backdrop of scenes of
Chinese students at the University of
Toronto (in fact, it was a meeting of
the Chinese Students' Association),
W5 interviewed a Canadian student
from St. Catharines who was not admitted to the University of Toronto's
pharmacy program. The implication
was made that she was refused admis
sion because the space was taken by a
foreign student. In fact, not one single
visa student has been admitted to the
pharmacy faculty.
The program also implied that
there are large numbers of
"foreigners" in medicine at the
University of Toronto. The fact is that
there are only two visa students in a
class of 256.
At UBC, visa students in 1979-80
account for less than one per cent of
all undergraduate and professional
program students. (Professional programs include law, medicine, dentistry, architecture and pharmacy.) Of
the total 21,097 undergraduate and
professional enrolment, 203 are visa
students this fall. At the graduate
level, 16 per cent are on student visa,
bringing the total of all visa students
to 2.88 per cent of the total enrolment.
Visa students are not admitted to
UBC unless they have gone as far as
they can in the education system of
their own countries. Each application
for admission is assessed individually.
Much of the problem, the AUCC
states, lies in confusion between landed immigrants and those with student
visas. Under Human Rights legislation
landed immigrants cannot be differentiated from Canadians for the
purposes of university admission. Visa
students account for less than five per
cent of the total enrolment in Canadian universities.
Service set
A Remembrance Day service will
be held at 10:45 a.m. Sunday,
Nov. 11, in the foyer of the War
Memorial Gymnasium at the
University of B.C.
The address will be given by
E.C. Wilkinson, a member of the
196th Western Universities Battalion Association, and the scripture will be read by J.V. Clyne, the
University chancellor.
Reverend L.R. Pocock will conduct the service which is open to
the public.
Music will be provided by the
UBC Wind Symphony. Students,
staff, faculty and interested
members of the University community are all welcome.
It was standing room only in the Great Hall of UBC's Museum of Anthropology
last week for the opening of the museum's major fall show, a display of the
graphic art of Haida artist Robert Davidson. His work will be on display at
UBC until February, 1980, and then will travel to the Queen Charlotte Islands
Museum and the Provincial Museum in Victoria. Another feature of the
opening-night ceremony was the presentation of a book on Davidson prints,
written by B.C. author Hilary Stewart.
Chinese scholars studying here
as part of education exchange
Nine Chinese scholars will be studying at UBC this fall and winter as part
of an agreement to further the
development of educational exchanges and co-operation between
Canada and the People's Republic of
China.
The exchange is part of a Canada-
wide program which follows negotiations between the Chinese Ministry of
Education and the Council of
Ministers of Education, Canada.
Six of the nine scholars have now arrived on campus, the latest arriving
last weekend. During their stay they'll
be living in the low-rise complex of the
Gage residence. Before coming to
Canada, they had to complete intensive courses in English comprehension
and conversation, and most of the
visitors expect to stay in Canada between one and two years. The Chinese
government is covering their living
costs.
Two of the Chinese scholars have
come to UBC to study medical carcinogenesis. Others are studying fish
physiology, mineral engineering, electrical engineering and oceanography.
In all more than 100 Chinese
scholars will study and carry out
research in Canadian institutions this
year. In turn, the Chinese government
will promote accessibility of Canadian
scholars and students to its institutions
of higher learning through travel to
China, access to research materials
and attendance at regular courses.
Discussions will be held between the
Chinese ministry of education and the
Canadian embassy in Peking to promote access for Canadian students,
postgraduates, and university professors, including specialists in social
sciences, humanities and science and
technology.
A number of UBC people have
recently been to China to study and
travel
Construction to start soon
on UBC's Asian Centre
Van Construction of Burnaby, the
lowest of six bidders, has been given
the job of completing construction of
the Asian Centre at the University of
British Columbia.
The Van bid of $2,797,187 was
within budget.
C.J. (Chuck) Connaghan, UBC
vice-president administrative services,
said he was encouraged by the number
of bids, and by the highly competitive
bidding. He said work would start immediately, with the building expected
to be ready for occupancy early in
1981.
The UBC Board of Governors had
set a budget of $3,591,952 for completion of the Asian Centre, including
landscaping and furnishings.
The centre will house UBC's Asian
Studies library of more than 200,000
books, as well as offices for members
of the Department of Asian Studies
and the Institute of Asian Research.
There will also be a 250-seat
auditorium for performances of Asian
music, theatre and dance, and an exhibition area.
Work on the Asian Centre began in
1974, following donation to UBC by
the Sanyo Corporation of the massive
roof used on Sanyo's pavilion at Expo
'70 in Osaka, Japan. But with the exterior walls up and the roof on, funds
ran out in 1975 and work was halted.
The Asian Centre is located on the
West Mall at UBC, adjacent to the
Nitobe Memorial Garden, just off
Marine Drive.
Chair in
Accounting
to be funded
The accounting profession is in
need of well-trained university
graduates, and at least one major
firm, Arthur Andersen & Co., is putting substantial capital money into the
university system to encourage them.
R.   Beverley   Harrison,   managing
partner of the firm's Vancouver office,
has announced the funding of the Ar
thur Anderson & Co. Alumni Chair in
Accounting at UBC.
"We look upon it as an investment
to help meet the continuing need for
accountants who have been taught by
business faculties staffed with the best
teachers available," Mr. Harrison
said. "Our firm and our employees
have had a long-term relationship
with UBC in the funding ot accounting development. The establishment
of the chair is a new and interesting
departure which we fee! will help to
satisfy a real need."
Peter Lusztig. dean of Commerce
and Business Administration at UBC,
says endowed "chairs are relatively
new in Canadian business schools but
points out that this is his faculty's
fourth.
The others are the United Parcel
Service Chair in Transportation, the
Philip H. White Chair in Urban Land
Economics, and the Albert E. Hall
Chair in Finance.
Establishment of a chair is a major
financial undertaking because it can
require an endowment large enough
to fund the teaching and research
costs of a senior professor on an annual basis. "Each case is different,
depending on whether or not the income is designed to cover both salary
and related expenses," Dean Lusztig
says. "If it covers both, we would be
talking about funds well up in the six-
figure range to generate the required
income.
"But the endowment offers tangible
benefits to the firm involved. It meets
their desire to aid in the development
of recruitable talent as well as supporting research and teaching in their
particular field. It also allows them to
plan for financing of such support on
a long-term basis, targeted to a very
specific field of study," Lusztig added.
RETIREMENTS
Continued from p. I
more than 33 years with the
Registrar's Office.
She, too, has seen a lot of changes
over her years at the University. When
she first joined the staff of the
Registrar's Office, there were five people in the department. In 1949, three
years after she joined UBC, the
University got its first IBM to store student records, she recalled. There were
about 9,000 students on campus at the
time, many of them ex-service people
whose education had been interrupted
by the war.
Ms. Law started out at UBC as a
stenographer, gradually moving up to
graduate assistant, administrative
assistant, and most recently, admissions officer examining the records
and applications of students wishing
to come to UBC.
She plans on retirement to follow
her early interests in art and pottery
making. She'll be moving in
December to her old family home on
Gabriola Island, a part-time home on
weekends and holidays for many
years. She's looking forward to
perhaps getting a kiln and taking summer courses at the Banff School of
Fine Arts.
"I look on retirement as the start of
something new," Ms. Law said, "not
the end of something." OBCreports

Ken Young
New registrar
appointed
Kenneth Gordon Young, 41, has
been appointed registrar of the
University of British Columbia, effective Jan. 1, 1980.
He succeeds Jack Parnall, 65, UBC's
registrar since 1957.
Ken Young joined UBC in 1965 as
assistant registrar, after spending two
years as assistant registrar at the
University of Calgary. He was named
associate registrar at UBC in 1973.
He was born in Edmonton and
holds Arts and Commerce degrees
from the University of Alberta, with
majors in psychology and personnel
administration.
Young will also succeed Parnall as
secretary of the UBC Senate.
"The challenge of the '80s will be to
respond to the needs of a changing
student population," Young said.
"Although the traditional 18-to-24-
year-old full-time student will continue to occupy the majority position,
the special needs of the older, part-
time student who is attending university in increasing numbers will have to
be addressed."
Accidents will happen,
but safety people on the lookout
Every year on this campus, between
three and four hundred accidents are
reported to the University's safety
committee. That's roughly one a day,
if you average the total over a year.
But an accident isn't necessarily as
serious as it sounds. "Accidents" can
be anything from tripping over a filing
cabinet or catching fingers in an
elevator door, to more serious things
like being bitten by an animal or
splashing chemicals into eyes.
Back injuries are very common, occurring when people slip on wet floors
or try to lift heavy articles.
Most accidents on campus are
relatively minor. And, according 10
Cal Barber, Employee Relations's
safety co-ordinator, carelessness, not
unsafe conditions, is the cause of more
than 60 per cent of them.
How many accidents happen on
campus, and why, is a concern to Cat
Barber and the University's safety
committee, because it affects the rates
that UBC must pay to the Workers'
Compensation Board for insurance.
"Special consideration is given to
UBC because of its verv low accident
rate," Mr. Barber explained, "though
our record now is not as good as it has
been." Every employer must contribute to the Workers' Compensation
Board so that every employee who is
injured on the job can be covered by
accident insurance.
How much an employer must pay
is, of course, determined by the
number of employees, but also the
type of business carried out. A mill,
for example, has a very high hazard
rate and thus generally pays a very
high insurance rate. In UBC's case,
the low insurance rate is partly
because of the nature of the business
carried out here, but not entirely. If
you stop to consider the diversity of
work done on campus, there is no one
category that UBC would fit into nicely-
To keep the number of accidents on
campus to a minimum, every department has a safety officer who should
be on the lookout for potential
dangers. And thev in turn can report
to the University's Safety, Security and
Fire Prevention Committee.
Since just after World War II this
UBC tops $25 million mark
for research funding last year
UBC received $25,923,392 for
research in the 1978-79 fiscal year, an
increase of 23 per cent over the
previous year, UBC's Board of Governors was told at its November meeting
on Tuesday.
The increase means that UBC has
"emerged from the lean years" that
characterized research funding in the
early 1970s, says Dr. Richard Spratley,
UBC's research administrator in his
annual report to the Board.
Highlights of research funding during the 1978-79 fiscal year pointed to
by Dr. Spratley include the following:
• Continuation of the gradual
decrease in the proportion of funds
provided by the federal government
Shuttle bus at your service
The shuttle bus service to take
students studying on campus at night
back to the residences and to their cars
in Blot has started up again, now that
the darker nights are approaching.
However, the Traffic and Security
service is not being as well used as it
might be. The greatest number of
users in an entire evening so far has
been 17, in spite of the fact that the
17-seater bus runs for more than three
hours each evening.
The bus service, instigated three
years ago at the request of women
students on campus, runs from 7:30 to
10:45 p.m. Sundays through
Thursdays. For the convenience of
students studying in the Sedgewick
and Main libraries, the bus begins its
route just outside the Bookstore, runs
down to Place Vanier residence and
Totem Park, then out to B-lot. It
returns from B-lot, along Main Mall
to the Bookstore again.
Although mainly intended for the
safety of women students, men
students are invited to ride the bus
when space allows. The service will
continue throughout the winter
months.
from a peak 78 per cent in 1972-73 to
64 per cent in 1978-79;
• A dramatic increase in provincial government support, largely as a
result of awards from the B.C. Health
Care Research Foundation ($883,854)
for projects in the health sciences;
• A continuation of the trend
toward "mission-oriented" research to
a point where research contracts now
make up 15 per cent of the total funds
received by UBC as opposed to 10 per
cent in 1972-73; and
• A gradual increase in research
programs carried out in collaboration
with industrial companies.
The Faculty of Medicine received
more than any other UBC faculty for
research in 1978-79, edging out the
Faculty of Science $7,699,106 to
$7,453,173. The Department of
Chemistry was the departmental
leader, topping $2 million for the first
time in 1978-79.
Faculties which have shown major
increases in research funding over the
past four years are Commerce and
Business Administration, Education,
Pharmaceutical Sciences and
Agricultural Sciences.
McGeer makes new appointments
to UBC Board and Senate
New appointments to UBC's Board
of Governors and Senate have been
announced by B.C.'s minister of
education, Dr. Patrick McGeer.
Joy McCusker, a member of the
management committee of UBC's
Health Sciences Centre, has been appointed to the Board of Governors,
succeeding Rendina Hamilton, who
has resigned to become a member of
the Universities Council of B.C.
The newest UBC senator is Harry
Franklin, a UBC graduate who was
executive director of the University's
Alumni Association for seven years
until resigning recently.
Mrs. McCusker graduated from
UBC in 1947 with a degree in zoology
and bacteriology and pursued a career
in scientific research. With her husband, Vancouver dentist Dr. Tom
McCusker, she is active in the International Association of Voluntary Health
Services.
Mr. Franklin graduated from UBC
in 1949 with a degree in economics
and was a Vancouver business executive until 1971, when he went to
Ottawa to establish the national office
of the Canadian Amateur Basketball
Association.
Erosion control
meeting tonight
A reminder to the people interested in the erosion control proposals for the Point Grey cliffs that
public meetings to discuss the proposals will be held this week.
First meeting is set for tonight
(Thursday) at 7:30 p.m. at Lord
Byng School to discuss the master
plan report prepared for UBC by
Swan Wooster engineering company.
Friday night's meeting, also at
7:30 p.m. at Lord Byng, will hear
a brief presented by the Wreck
Beach Committee. Other briefs
will be heard on Saturday at two
public meetings in the Hebb
Theatre on campus. The first
meeting begins at 2:00.p.m., and
an evening meeting follows at 7:30
p.m.
For further information, call
228-5311.
committee has been in operation,
recommending changes to make a
safer campus. Recently, for example,
better railings and lights were placed
on the stairwells leading down into the
Sedgewick library, on the committee's
recommendation. In the General Services Administration Building,
renovations to the stairs will be made
and new railings will be installed after
a couple of recent accidents. Although
the stairs in the GSAB met the national building code standards and the
Workers' Compensation Board
regulations, the committee still
recommended for safety's sake that
the changes be made.
Because safety more often than not
crosses departmental lines and it's
unlikely that any one department has
enough money in its budget for
upgrading what might be problem
areas, monev for recommended
changes comes directiv from the President's Office.
Besides recommending changes
when accidents do occur, the safety
committee is also concerned with
prevention. An extensive program of
brochures, films and talks, developed
by the Workers' Compensation Board,
is available to campus groups through
Cal Barber in Employee Relations.
Not long'ago, the people working at
the UBC Botanical Garden were given
a special accident prevention program. Members of the Workers' Compensation Board came to campus and
showed films on such subjects as how
to lift properly or how to use ladders.
If you think your department could
benefit by such a program, give Cal
Barber a call at local 5811.
Profile published
on B.C. kids
• Some five per cent of British Columbia's adolescent girls will become
pregnant this year and most of them
will have abortions.
• In one B.C. school district, only
one student in three completes Grade
12; in another district, 9 out of 10
complete Grade 12.
• Among B.C.'s secondary school
students there are far more drinkers
than smokers.
Those are just three of the facts
culled from Child Health Profile, a
collection of information about the
children of British Columbia that has
been prepared by pediatrician Roger
Tonkin, an assistant professor in the
Faculty of Medicine at UBC.
"Our children are our most precious
natural resource," Dr. Tonkin says in
the preface to his book. "Societies
stress the value of children and nurture warm, joyful, even optimistic images of childhood. But what is the
reality of being a child today?"
Dr. Tonkin then uses the most current data available, much of it
previously unpublished, to present an
objective picture of the status of
children in B.C. today.
"By and large," says Dr. Tonkin,
"the children of B.C. enjoy good
health and receive a sound education.
They seem well prepared to cope with
the future."
Child Health Profile contains close
to 50 tables, charts and graphs, covering everything from A (adolescents
and the law) to W (whooping cough
cases, 1952-78).
Copies of Child Health Profile are
available from the UBC Division of
Population Paediatrics, 250 West 59th
Avenue, Vancouver, V5X 1X2, for
