Parkade to be built
on Fraser River lot
UBC's Board of Governors has taken
steps to solve the parking problem in
the northwest quadrant of the campus
by approving a plan to build a new
parkade on the Fraser River parking
lot adjacent to the Asian Centre.
Foreign students
to pay $4100
in Quebec
The government of Quebec has
announced dramatic increases in
tuition fees to be paid by foreign
The new levels are based on the
principle that foreign students will
henceforth pay 60 percent of the
average per-student cost of post-
secondary education. This amounts to
$4,128 for the 1981-82 academic year
in universities.
Students who are already in
programs have some relief from the
new policy: their fees will rise by only
$1,000 in the fall of 1981, to $2,500.
In subsequent years, fees of continuing
students will rise by $1,000 per year,
until they reach the 60 percent-of-cost
level. Foreign students who were
already in Quebec in 1978, and so
were subject to the original 1978
imposition of differential fees will not.
be subject to the new policy either. All  ■
such students are now in the fourth
year of four-year programs.
There are a variety of exemptions
from the higher fees. Refugees, and
dependents of foreign representatives
in Canada are exempt. So are those
students who are in Canada under an
exchange program approved by the
government of Quebec, of which there
are several. Further, the Quebec
government has specific agreements
with 11 countries which exempt their
students from higher tuition fees:'
Fiance, Gabon, Senegal, Ivory Coast,
Algeria, Zaire, Morocco, Central
African Republic, Mali, Togo, and
The new structure will provide
parking for up to 720 cars on 4^6

become a matter of high priority
because of the numerous buildings and
other facilities in the area that are
attracting day and night use by faculty
and staff as well as the genera' public.
"The opening of the Asian Centre
later this year will lead to another shift
in the daytime campus population
since the centre will serve as a major
library resource and house the
Department of Asian Studies and the
Institute of Asian Research," Dr.
Kennedy said.
"Quite apart from faculty and staff
use, more and more people are
attending public events in the Frederic
Wood Theatre and the Music Building
and visiting the Nitobe Garden and
the Museum of Anthropology.
"All of these factors mean that
additional traffic will be drawn to this
area of the campus and will place
intolerable pressure on limited parking
unless steps are taken to construct the
Construction of the parkade will
begin in June and is expected to be
complete by December at a cost of
more than $3,000,000.
During the construction period,
parking regulations in the northwest
section of the campus will be relaxed
to permit parking on the East and
Main Malls and on Crescent Road.
It's also proposed to allow parking
on a site west of the Scarfe Building
currently occupied by old army huts.
These will be demolished in the fall to
make way for a new Psychology
Building, currently in the planning
stage. Parking will be permitted on

Two members of UBC's Canadian university champion field hockey team, Arlynn
Copithorne, left, and Anne Crofts, visited President Douglas Kenny recently to
express their thanks tangibly for a $5,000 University gift to enable the team to reach
a fund-raising goal of $25,000. Team fund drive raised $20,000 to pay travel and
living expenses for an overseas trip that began Monday when 16 players and coach
Gail Wilson left for an international university tournament in Glasgow. Team will
tour Scotland, England and Wales until mid-May. Registrar's office co-operated by
staging special exams for team members in the week prior to departure.
Belgian prize worth $100,000
The Consul General of Belgium has
advised UBC Reports that the King
Baudouin International Development
Prize will be awarded in the autumn
of 1982 for the second time.

UBC grad student's comedy in festival
The Waterfront Theatre on
Granville Island is presenting a series
of open workshop productions until
April 25, and one of the plays being
staged is a work by Roger Mitton, a
graduate student in UBC's creative
writing department.
Mitton's play, La Segunda, is one of
five productions in the du Maurier
Festival of one act plays. La Segunda
is a comedy about two old men who
mourn the loss of the "old world" as
they find themselves in a world ruled,
as they see it, by liberated females.
After the plays are presented each
night, audience membere are asked to
participate in critical discussions with
the playwright, director and actors.
Plays may be rewritten, incorporating
suggestions and re-rehearsed during
the performance run.
Mitton is the author of two
published novels, Thirteen Days and
Master and Son and has had a
number of shorter works published
and produced on radio.
He is currently working on a third
novel which follows a Vancouver
architect through a 24-hour period
when he decides to give up his
successful but conventional practice
and leave for Europe to design
"landmark" buildings.
Mitton said his involvement with the
creative writing department has been
helpful in providing feedback about
his writing.
"Especially with drama. A novel is a
more solitary work, but with a play it's
really helpful to get other writers'
ideas and responses to my own ideas."
francs, or about $100,000 was
established by the King Baudouin
Foundation in 1979. It is to be
awarded every two years. The initial
prize, in 1980, was shared by Brazilian
educator Paulo Freire and the
Consultative Group on International
Agricultural Research.
The prize rewards people or
organizations without regard to
nationality" who have made a
significant contribution to the
development of the Third World and
to the solidarity and good relations
between the industrialized countries
and the countries in the process of
development, as well as between the
peoples of these countries.

submitted before Sept. 30, 1981, and

Board backs Commerce cut
UBC's Board of Governors last week
reluctantly confirmed a motion passed
by the University Senate in March
limiting 1981-82 enrolment in the
Faculty of Commerce to 850 students
in the first two years of the four-year
degree program.
Two governors — William Sauder
and Joy McCusker — voted against the
motion, which has the effect of
reducing first-and second-year
Commerce enrolment by 100 students.
Sauder termed the proposal
"distressing" at a time when the
Commerce faculty should be
expanding its intake of students.
He was supported by McCusker,
who said a reduction of 100 students
would not solve the faculty's problem
of being unable to recruit new faculty

p.m   Friday, May 8, in Lecture Hall
No. 2 of the Woodward Instructional
Resources Centre. "The Brandt
Report: Setting the Context" is the
title of his talk, which is free and open
to the public.
The conference moves into the

Continuing Education on campus,
members. She said the enrolment
limitation was a case of moving
"backward instead of forward."
President Douglas Kenny told the
Board that the major problem facing
business schools in all parts of Canada
was a shortage of qualified faculty to
teach growing numbers of commerce
He said there were 200 vacant
teaching positions in Canadian
business schools. As a result, Canadian
schools were "stealing one another's
faculty members" and driving up the
salaries that universities were forced to
offer to recruit a new teacher.
He said Commerce dean Dr. Peter
Lusztig had set a target of trying to
attract six new faculty members for
the coming year and had managed to
recruit only three. He added that the
University of Alberta was offering
starting salaries of $34,000 a year to
new Ph.D. graduates to join their
business school.
President Kenny also told the Board
that the reduction in the number of
students in the first two years of the
Commerce program represented a
transfer of effort from the
undergraduate to the graduate
program in the faculty.
He said the only long term solution
to the shortage of faculty members in
commerce was to expand opportunities
for graduate studies.
The president went on to say that
there would continue to be
opportunities for students in the
Department of Economics in the
Faculty of Arts if they were unable to
get into Commerce.
He said graduates in economics
would eventually be able to enter
Commerce at the graduate level to
take their Master of Business
Administration degree.
President Kenny was supported by
Chancellor J. V. Clyne, who said that
Senate had been assured that the
quality of education in Commerce
would suffer if enrolment continued at
its present level.
Board member Alan F. Pierce said
he knew Dean Lusztig had been
aggressive in attempting to recruit new
faculty and did not see how more
could have been done.
New head of NITEP appointed
Roy Bentley, acting dean of
Education, has announced the
appointment of Verna Kirkness as the
new supervisor of UBC's Native Indian
Teacher Education Program (NITEP).
The program trains native Indians
interested in teaching elementary
education. The students spend their
first two years at an off-campus centre
and then attend classes at the
University for the final two years of
the four-year degree program.
Ms. Kirkness, who took over her
new duties as supervisor April 1, is no
stranger to NITEP. She has been
teaching in the program during this
academic year, both at UBC and in
the North Vancouver and Kamloops
centres for first- and second-year
Over the past four year, Ms.
Kirkness has worked as a consultant on
Indian education with Indian teacher
education programs, Indian bands,
school districts, provincial education
ministries and federal agencies.
She has also worked as a researcher
for the House of Commons, as the
education director of the National
Indian Brotherhood and the Manitoba
Indian Brotherhood and has taught in
various schools.
Ms. Kirkness, a Cree Indian, earned
her Master's degree in education from
the University of Manitoba.
She said she is looking forward to
the expansion of NITEP. "We're
opening new centres in Prince George
and in East Vancouver. Hopefully,
both will be in operation by fall."
She also wants to emphasize student
input into the program. "As
supervisor, I want to build on the
program, based on input by students.
I'm holding a workshop in Kamloops
on April 16 with first- and second-year
students to get some of their ideas on
what would benefit the program."
Along with her appointment as
supervisor of NITEP, Ms. Kirkness has
been appointed an assistant professor,
effective July 1.
Art More, who has been acting
supervisor of the program since July,
1980, returns to his duties as
supervisor of Indian Education at

Prof. D. Harold Copp, who retired
last year as head of the Department of
Physiology in the Faculty of Medicine,
has been honored once again for his
contributions to medical science.
Last week he was in Ottawa where
Governor-General Ed Schreyer
conferred on him the insignia of
Companion of the Order of Canada,
this country's highest decoration. The
title of Officer of the order was
conferred on Dr. Copp in 1971.
Dr. Copp is internationally known
for his discovery of the hormone
calcitonin, which is now used all over
the world for treatment of a number
of bone diseases.
He's received several awards for his
research on calcium regulation and
last year Block A of the Medical
Sciences Buildings in the McCreary
Health Sciences Centre was renamed
for him. The building houses the
department which Dr. Copp headed
from the time UBC's medical school
was organized in 1950 until he retired
last year.
In addition to serving as a
department head for 30 years, Dr.
Copp was co-ordinator of health
sciences at UBC from 1975 to 1977. UBC Report* April 15, 1981
