UBC Reports, which
you've just picked up, is a
weekly publication which will
appear every Wednesday
throughout the year in more
than 30 locations around
Starting from the back, it
will tell you about lectures,
concerts and events taking
place on the campus the next
week, in time for you to plan
ahead, perhaps to take in a
lecture in a field outside your
Inside you'll find articles
on interesting research going
on at this university, or
interviews with members of
the University community, or
maybe even articles on UBC
outside the campus. You can
also find out here about
major developments at the
University which could affect
your life on campus and in
the future. You'll also be
informed of some current
changes on campus.
So pick us up. We don't
take long to read. And we
may change your plans. Or
even your thinking.

may help to pass the inevitable minutes of
waiting during registration. And it Will fill you in
on what happened during the summer while you were
gone. \
Good to see you (again). "~**~\
■.**:X#*'llr*• Summer news
in brief:
Want to spend a few minutes while
you're standing in one of those
ubiquitous registration week lineups
and catch up on the campus
happenings during the summer?
Although the campus may look the
same as when you left last spring,
some interesting things have taken
place, the Museum of Anthropology is
open and worth a visit, and another
successful Summer Session has come
and gone.
The Museum of Anthropology
opened to the public on June 2 and
has so far attracted and surprised
thousands of visitors with its
collections of northwest coast Indian
art and other collections from around
the world. The museum was officially
opened by the governor-general of
Canada, Jules Leger, before more than
2,000 onlookers. Those who crowded
into the building on Northwest Marine
Drive after the ceremony were the first
members of the public to see all the
UBC collections gathered over the
Pacific northwest coast Indian
artifacts make up about half of the
total holdings of the museum, which
also houses about 8,000 artifacts from
Asian, classical and tribal worlds. And
all the collections are on view in this
museum in the visible storage galleries
— well-lighted and dust-free cases
designed for public access.
Before you get caught up in essays
and reading this fall, or even as a break
from all that, take an hour or so and
wander through the new museum. It's
open from noon to 5 p.m. Wednesday
through Sunday and from noon to 9
p.m. on Tuesday. It is closed to the
public on Monday. Admission is 75
cents for students with cards every day
except Tuesday when admission is
During the summer UBC was given
all the audio-visual and print materials
used at the United Nations Habitat
conference held in Vancouver in May
and June.
The material will be administered
by the UBC Centre for Human
Settlements, a new centre created
during the Habitat conference and
which now occupies space on the
2/UBC Reports/Sept. 7, 1976
fourth floor of the Woodward
Instructional Resources Centre. The
people there have spent their summer
cataloguing and indexing the more
than 10,000 audio-visual items and the
printed materials from Habitat in
preparation for the demands which
will be placed on them in the fall. The
centre hopes to be operating as a
lending library for the public by
Summer Session was an enjoyable
learning time again this year, especially
for the more than 600 senior citizens
who took advantage of UBC's senior
citizen programs. Summer Session is
now under the directorship of the
Office of Extra-Sessional Studies, an
office newly created to co-ordinate the
administration of all part-time degree
programs, Intersession and Summer
Session. Named as head of that office
in June was Dr. Norman Watt, the
former director of Summer Session.
Offices are located in the coach house
at Cecil Green Park.
The new head of the Bookstore
began his duties in the summer. John
Hedgecock brings to UBC 23 years of
experience in the book industry and is
president of the National Association
of College Stores, a North American
organization for  bookstore managers.
Two new deans and a new acting
dean started their terms in the summer
as well. Dr. Warren Kitts was named
dean of Agricultural Sciences in July
after being acting dean for a year.
Kenneth Lysyk took up his duties as
the new dean of Law in July, leaving
his post as deputy attorney-general of
Saskatchewan to come to UBC. And
Commerce Dean Noel Hall stepped
down at the end of June, leaving his
duties to Acting Dean Stanley
Hamilton while a search for a new
dean of that faculty is carried out.
Four new department heads and a
new director of TRIUMF also began
their terms on July 1. New head of the
Department of Biochemistry is Dr.
William Polglase. Head of the
Department of Pathology is Dr. David
Hardwick. Both departments are in the
Faculty     of     Medicine.     The     new
chairman of the Department of
Bio-Resource Engineering in the
Faculty of Agricultural Sciences is
Prof. John Zahradnik, who comes to
UBC from the University of
Massachusetts. Named as head of
Creative Writing is Prof. Douglas
Bankson. Taking his place while he is
on leave of absence this academic year
is Prof. Jacob Zilber. Dr. Jack Sample,
a faculty member from the University
of Alberta, has been named as the new
director of TRIUMF, a nuclear
research centre- on campus, for the
next three years.
CITR, the student-run radio station
which operates out of the Student
Union Building, was granted
permission in August by the Canadian
Radio-Television Commission to link
up to the cablevision system now
serving Vancouver homes. This means
that news of the campus has the
potential of reaching more than
200,000 homes this winter. Any
cablevision subscriber in the
Vancouver area will soon be able to
pick up CITR by having cablevision
connected to an FM radio tuned into
95.9 on the FM dial.

UBC was given several major grants
for research and teaching this summer.
The Law Foundation of B.C.
granted $51,750 to the UBC Legal
Clinic, a program offered by the
Faculty of Law, to expand the clinic
to accommodate 20 students each
term, up from 12 students each term
last year, its first year of operation.
A major grant from the W. K.
Kellogg Foundation of $265,965 to
UBC will aid in the establishment of a
new organization that aims at further
professional development for
educational administrators in the
province. The new organization is the
British Columbia Council for
Leadership in Education.
A team of UBC economists was
granted more than $806,000 over the
next five years from the Canada
Council for an integrated study
designed to throw light on the
management of world natural
resources. That grant will allow up to
45 graduate students to be involved in
the study over the next five years.
And the Department of National
Defence has approved a $250,000
grant to UBC to enable the further
development of research and teaching
in the area of strategic studies. The
grant will be paid at the rate of
$50,000 a year for five years and will
be made to the Institute of
International Relations at UBC. N.
ow that you've gathered up all your course cards, deposited them
in the appropriate place, smiled for your library picture and been stamped
as enrolled, you may have some questions. If this is your first term at
UBC, you'll have a lot of questions. This page, we hope, will provide a few
answers to the basic needs you'll have during the year.

students to UBC is held on Thursday,

Money. If you're wondering why
that loan you applied for hasn't come
