UBC vehicles to run on natural gas by fall
Eighteen UBC vehicles operated by
the Department of Physical Plant will
be running on compressed natural gas
instead of gasoline by the end of
The performance of the vehicles
will be monitored for one year by B.C.
Research, the independent industrial
research organization located on the
UBC campus, under an agreement
now in the process of being signed
with the provincial government,
which will pay for equipment installation and fuel for the duration of the
test period. .
UBC's energy conservation engineer
Arthur Orr said the technique for conversion of the Physical Plant vehicles
to enable them to burn compressed
natural gas instead of gasoline is a
fairly simple one and will be carried
out by a B.C. Research technician.
"B.C. has an abundance of natural
gas, but imports 80 per cent of its oil,"
explained Mr. Orr. "The oil product
— gasoline — costs twice as much
energy-wise as natural gas. In using
compressed natural gas we're moving
toward energy self-sufficiency and cutting our costs in half."
The conversion involves mounting
on each UBC vehicle a 400-pound
cylinder of natural gas compressed to
2,500 pounds per square inch. Each
cylinder contains compressed gas
equivalent to six gallons of gasoline
and should power the vehicle for 80 to
90 miles — at about half the cost of
conventional gasoline.
The conversion won't mean that
gasoline tanks will be removed from
the Physical Plant vehicles, however.
Drivers will be able to switch over
from compressed gas to gasoline at
B.C.   Research   will   compute   the
' mileage resulting from the use of both
types of fuel and periodically check
the engines of the converted vehicles
for wear and tear.
There's nothing new or experimental about the conversion, Mr. On-
said. Some 400,000 vehicles have been
converted to use compressed natural
gas in the U.S. and other foreign
Meanwhile, three UBC students
working under Mr. Orr this summer
are continuing to carry out energy
audits of various campus buildings.
Audits have been completed in the
Lasserre, Chemical Engineering,
Henry Angus and the Civil and
Mechanical Engineering Buildings
and in the West Mall Annex.
Audits are currently underway in
the Woodward Biomedical Library
and the Sedgewick Library. Removal

Jazz fans young and old were on hand Wednesday in SUB
plaza to enjoy a sunny noon-hour concert with the
Westside Feetwarmers. The free noon-hour concerts,
sponsored   by   the   Summer   Session   Association,    are
presented every day at 12:30 in various locations around
the campus. For details on summer session events check the
bulletin boards around campus and the weekly UBCalen-
tion of mechanical equipment in the
buildings will follow analysis of the information collected.
A report on proposed lighting
energy conservation measures in the
Buchanan Tower has been reviewed
and revised in some areas, Mr. On-
said. The final proposal is being
reviewed with building occupants
prior to implementation. The first
phase of mechanical modifications is
now being implemented.
Mr. Orr expects to be able to reduce
significantly UBC's annual energy bill
of some $4 million through "quick-fix"
changes, so-called because little or no
money is involved in the alterations.
UBC's present total energy consumption is 54.9 kilowatt hours a year
for each square foot of floor space.
This compares favorably with the
57.17 kilowatt hours a year per square
foot at SFU.
Men's athletics
head named
Dr. Robert Hindmarch, Director of
Athletics and Sports Services has announced the appointment of Rick
Noonan, 36, to the position of director
— men's athletic program.
Back at UBC after a year's leave of
absence as general manager of the
Canadian Olympic Hockey Team,
Mr. Noonan will administer the men's
athletic program. His position complements that of Marilyn Pomfret, the
long-time administrator of the
women's athletic program.
Mr. Noonan joined the athletic
department July 1, 1970, as head
trainer and instructor of athletic injury courses in the School of Physical
Education and Recreation. He was
responsible for the development of a
student trainers corps which provided
training services to many of UBC's
varsity sports.
A Toronto native, he attended St.
Michael's School where he played
Junior "A" hockey under Father David
Bauer. As a student there he became
interested and involved in the art of
training. After graduation from
Toronto Teachers College, he joined
the training staff of the Toronto
Maple Leafs, and during the late
1960's served as trainer for Canada's
National Team.
While at UBC Mr. Noonan was in
constant demand by Team Canada in
its several series with the Russian National Team as well as the World
Championships. In 1975 he was on
loan to the Japanese Hockey Federation which needed his expertise to
adopt and develop his advanced training methods.
He will continue to assist the national team program as he has done in
the past, but his immediate goals will
be in the direction of UBC's broadly-
based athletic program.
Site approved for new
University Bookstore
UBC's Board of Governors has approved the preparation of working
drawings for a new University
Bookstore, which is to be built at the
corner of University Boulevard and
East Mall directly east of the
Biological Sciences Building.
The Board approved the site for a
new bookstore on the recommendation of the President's Advisory Committee on Land Use and authorized
President Douglas Kenny to make application to the provincial government
for permission to borrow funds for
construction of the new building.
The loan would be repaid from
future net revenues of the bookstore.
The new University Bookstore will
include 5,889 square metres of space
on two levels, with the main book
display and supply area located on the
lower floor slightly below ground level
to take advantage of a slight north-
south slope at the site.
The upper level of the building will
include facilities for shipping and
receiving and will be entered at
ground level from the rear of the
building, which will lie on a north-
south axis along East Mall.
The main entrance to the new
bookstore will be at the corner of
University Boulevard and West Mall.
It's also expected that some upgrading
of shelters at the main University bus
stop adjacent to the building entrance
will be carried out.
Retail selling space in the new
bookstore will be three times larger
than similar space in UBC's present
Architects for the project are Zoltan
Kiss and Partners.
Architect's sketch shows entrance to new UBC Bookstore to be constructed at intersection of University Boulevard and East Mall directly east of Biological
Sciences Building, seen at centre rear of sketch. New bookstore is adjacent to
main UBC bus stop, seen at right, and will provide triple the retail space in present bookstore. Zoltan Kiss and Partners are project architects. UBCreports

Legion funds UBC health program for seniors
Older people not receiving adequate health care will benefit from a
new joint effort by UBC and the Royal
Canadian Legion.
The Mount Pleasant branch of the
legion will give $725,000 over five
years towards a new UBC geriatric
The teaching and research project
will be an off-shoot of the geriatric
out-patient day service at the Banfield
Pavilion at VGH.
Under the day hospital service, coordinated by Dr. Clyde Slade of the
Department of Family Practice in
UBC's Faculty of Medicine, elderly
patients spend a day or more a week at
the hospital.
The day service is for older people
who don't need to be put into hospital,
but who do need professional help,
usually for a variety of problems.
"We have discovered that there are
a large number of elderly patients who
need this type of service," Dr. Slade
"The purpose of this new program
is to find out how many people need
this type of help, and determine the
best way of giving them health care, so
they can carry on at their best level of
health in their home instead of as a
full-time patient in a hospital.
"At the same time, we want to train
students how to serve these type of patients who often aren't getting the help
they need.
"If you have a broken leg, our
health system will give you the best
service in the world. But suppose you
have a broken leg,  you're old,  you
have arthritis, and you've had a stroke
— so your mind wanders a bit.
Perhaps you haven't been out of the
house in years. You may be seriously
"The chances are good that you'll
fall between the cracks in our health
care system.
"We aren't trying to find out why
elderly patients lose calcium from
their bones and suffer fractures more
easily. Although that information is
necessary, it's the responsibility of
other departments in the Faculty of
Medicine to discover why.
"We want to find out how to provide better primary health care, and
train students to provide it in the community rather than in hospital."
Dr. Slade said the emphasis in the
Trying out one of the 18 stations on the new Parcourse exercise circuit on the perimeter of Maclnnes Field north of
the War Memorial Gymnasium are agricultural sciences
graduate students John Kitts, left, Boo Cuthbert, centre,
and Dan Quan. UBC physical education experts say Par-
course is one of the best basic fitness systems in existence.
Each station has an instruction board for varying abilities
and fitness levels. Project is a joint venture by UBC's
Athletic Office and Housing Office and was purchased
with funds provided by the University administration.
UBC program will be on the health
team approach where students training to be physicians and other health
professionals will learn to co-ordinate
their care for patients.
The Royal Canadian Legion funding will be permanent, with the program financed through interest earned on the money invested in a trust
This is the second major support the
legion has given UBC's Faculty of
Medicine. Two years ago the Pacific
Command (B.C. region) of the legion
created the Royal Canadian Legion
Chair in Family Practice through a
$40,000 annual grant.
The grant made it possible for the
University to recruit its first head to
direct its new Department of Family
Debbi Wheatley, a final-year
education student has been elected to
the executive committee of the International Student Council for Exceptional Children — the first Canadian
to gain this honor.
Ms. Wheatley, who plans to pursue
UBC specialist training as a teacher of
the deaf after she completes her
Bachelor of Education degree,
assumes office July 1.
Her duties as vice-president communications will take her to Virginia
and New York, as well as to Halifax in
October for the national congress of
the Canadian Council for Exceptional
Children. Locally, Ms. Wheatley will
be working with other SCEC members
at UBC to establish chapters at the
University of Victoria and SFU.
Exceptional children are those un-
suited to the standard educational
system — those with physical or mental handicaps, or those far brighter
than average.
Two of the aims of the Council for
Exceptional Children are to promote
professional standards of a high order
and improve the preparation of
teachers dealing with exceptional
children; and to promote programs
designed to attract students into the
profession of special education.
Professor to hold joint appointment: Economics and Forestry
UBC's noted resource economist
Prof. Peter Pearse will hold a joint appointment in the Department of
Economics and the Faculty of Forestry
when he returns to full-time teaching
and research in September after a
year's leave of absence with the United
Prof. Pearse, who is perhaps best
known as the sole royal commissioner
on forest resources for B.C. in
1975-76, which resulted in a new
forest act for the province, joins the
UBC forestry faculty to develop further teaching and research in the area
of forest policy and management. He
has been a member of the economics
department in the Faculty of Arts
since 1962.
In recent years, Prof. Pearse has
been working intensively in the field of
fisheries policy and management, and
two of the three projects he worked on
in the past year for the United Nations
were related to this area.
For the Food and Agriculture
Organization based in Rome, Prof.
Pearse prepared a report on ways in
which UN member countries, and
particularly those bordering on the
Mediterranean, can regulate access to
•fisheries so that the resource can be efficiently managed and not reach the
point of depletion.
He was also part of a three-member
team of UN experts which visited the
west African country of Mauritania,
which recently extended jurisdiction
over its fishery to 200 miles off its
coast. The team advised the Maurita-
nian government on putting into place
a set of management policies for the
fishery, which is particularly rich in
squid and octopus and which has up
to now been exploited by long-range
fishing fleets from Russia, Japan and
South Africa.
His third mission for the UN involved visiting Sabah, a state in the Malaysian federation on the island of
Borneo, as part of a three-member
team which advised the government
on revision of the royalty system on the
harvesting of hardwood timber, a
resource in which Sabah is particularly rich.
The new head of UBC's Department of Linguistics in the Faculty of
Arts is Dr. Guy Carden, who has
taught linguistics at Yale University in
New Haven, Connecticut, since 1970.
Dr. Carden, 36, is a graduate of
Harvard University, where he was
awarded the degrees of Bachelor of
Arts in 1966 and Doctor of Philosophy
in 1970. He was a visiting scientist at
Massachusetts Institute of Technology
in 1975-76 and a visiting scholar at
Harvard in 1979.
Prof. Leslie M. Lavkulich, a
member of the Faculty of Agricultural
Sciences since 1966, has been appointed head of the Department of
Soil Science in that faculty.
Prof. Lavkulich, who specializes in
a variety of topics in the field of soil
science, including soil classification,
land resource allocation and reclamation and environmental impact assessment, is a graduate of the University
of Alberta, where he received the
degrees of Bachelor and Master of
Science, and Cornell University,
where he was awarded the degree of
Doctor of Philosophy in 1967.
He succeeds Prof. Charles A.
"Chuck" Rowles, a member of the
UBC faculty since 1946, who retired
on June 30. In addition to his work as
a teacher and researcher in soil
science, Prof. Rowles was for many
years associated with UBC activities as
a member and chairman of the men's
athletic committee.
Dr. Charles A. Laszlo, a member of
the UBC faculty since 1974, has been
named director of a new program in
clinical engineering which will enrol
its first class of six to 12 students in
The new program, which will offer
a master's degree in clinical engineering in the Faculty of Graduate
Studies, will prepare graduates in
engineering for leadership roles in
hospitals, where they will develop new
instrumentation for research and
diagnostic purposes and supervise the
safe and effective use of sophisticated
and complex electronic and
mechanical equipment.
The new program will also prepare
students for further advanced training
in the field of biomedical engineering,
a rapidly developing discipline that
provides an interface between
medicine and engineering.
Dr. Laszlo had been a member of
the Faculty of Pharmaceutical
Sciences at UBC since 1974 and is also
associate director of the division of
health systems in the Office of the Coordinator of Health Sciences.
He was recently elected Canadian
representative to the administrative
committee of the Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society. The
7,400-member society is part of the
200,000-member Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. UBCreports
Biology grad designing
lab exercises for summer
In a small laboratory in UBC's
Biological Sciences building, Ken
Teng is putting together a series of experiments which will be used in the
lab section of a fourth-year zoology
Mr. Teng graduated from UBC this
spring in Biology and is spending his
summer working with Dr. John
Gosline, assistant professor of zoology,
on a project funded by the Ministry of
Labour's Youth Employment Program.
The project involves designing
about 12 lab exercises to supplement
lectures given in Zoology 411, a course
which looks at animals, particularly
the movement of animals, from an
engineering point of view.
"Zoology 411 deals with biomechanics, which is the study of
physical and mechanical properties
behind the behaviour of animals,"
said Mr. Teng. "The course looks at
such things as the strength and flexibility of different types of bird
feathers to see how the physical properties affect the flight of the bird."
He is getting the information and
ideas for the lab exercises from the
textbook used for the course, as well as
from other books and journals on biomechanics. Although the lab exercises
are still in the early planning stages,
he is already working on one which
studies bio-materials in skin, tendons
and arteries. The lab is designed to
show that although the three types of
materials are made up of exactly the
same proteins — elastin and collagen
— they have different characteristics
because the proteins are organized differently in each.
"There  are  three  aspects  of bio
mechanics," Mr. Teng explains. "The
first is the study of the physical properties of the animal's bone, skin,
muscles etc. The second is the study of
the skeletal organization in the
animal's body — how the different
skeletal arrangements in a horse and a
lizard, for example, cause these two
animals to move in very dissimilar
"The third area of bio-mechanics is
the study of movement in the animal
— the energy and forces involved in
locomotion. This area also takes environmental factors such as the wind
forces in the flight of birds, into consideration."
While the lab exercises involve some
very complex engineering principles,
the exercises themselves will be done
on a very simple level.
"The equipment needed to conduct
these studies at a sophisticated level is
very expensive," says Mr. Teng. "Most
of the labs will be simplified versions
of the engineering principles, but they
will give the students a chance to experiment with the ideas they learn
about in the lectures. It makes the
ideas easier to visualize and understand."
Zoology 411 does not currently have
a lab component, but the lab exercises
that Mr. Teng is working on this summer are expected to be incorporated
into the course in the 1981-82 winter
session at UBC.
Mr. Teng is planning to continue
his edut ation at McGill University this
fall in the field of biomedical
engineering, which combines experts
from the medical field and the
technology of engineers to develop
medical instruments and equipment.
Music indexed by grad student
Music graduate Robert Kendall
Robert Kendall has taken on the
massive job of helping catalogue and
index 7,000 pieces of music this summer.
While it seems like a tall order, the
work is being done with the help of the
Computing Centre at UBC under the
supervision of associate professor Dr.
John Sawyer.
Dr. Sawyer began the project a few
years ago and Mr. Kendall is just one
in a series of students who will help
him complete the job.
Mr. Kendall is a graduate of UBC's
Department of Music and is one of
more than 600 UBC students who
have received Youth Employment
Program grants from the Ministry cf
Labour to carry out summer projects
related to their field of study. Grants
to UBC students this summer will total
$1.22 million.
The project involves feeding information about the 7,000 pieces of
music written for the viola de gamba,
an early instrument of the viol family
resembling the modern cello, into a
computer. The pieces are filed under
37 "fields" or characteristics, such as
the title of the piece, the composer,
the musical key, length, and the first
14 notes of the composition.
"Once the information is in the
computer," says Mr. Kendall, "the
computer will sort and index the
material so that all 37 characteristics
of each piece of music will be easily accessible."
The aim of the project is to organize
the music, thus making it more readily
available for students and faculty
members as well as off-campus musicians and researchers who wish to use
Mr. Kendall, whose interests lie
particularly in the areas of the lute
and music history, plans to attend
graduate school in the field of music
at New York University this fall.
Biology graduate student Ken Teng is busy designing lab exercises for a zoology
course in bio-mechanics which at present doesn't have a lab component. Idea is
that the lab exercises will make it easier for students to understand material
learned in class.
Former UBC dean of arts dies
A memorial service was held in
Saanichton on Vancouver Island last
week for Dr. John H. Young, former
head of the economics department
and dean of the Faculty of Arts at
UBC, who died July 7 aged 58 following a long illness.
UBC's president, Dr. Douglas Kenny, paid tribute to Dr. Young and the
contributions he made to his discipline, to the University and to national and international finance and
monetary policy.
"Apart from the significant contribution made by John Young to the
academic growth of his department
and faculty at UBC," the president
said, "he was continually called on by
the federal government to undertake
some very difficult assignments,
notably as chairman of the Prices and
Incomes Commission from 1969 to
"His extensive knowledge of contemporary economics led to his appointment as a leading official for the
International Monetary Fund in
Washington, D.C. His untimely death
deprives the academic world and the
international economic community of
a devoted and tireless servant."
A native of Victoria, Dr. Young attended the former Victoria College
when it was affiliated to UBC and
then enrolled at Queen's University in
Kingston, Ont., where he received the
degrees of Bachelor and Master of
Arts. He was awarded the Doctor of
Philosophy degree by Cambridge
University in 1955.
Dr. Young taught at Yale University
from 1953 to 1960, when he accepted
an invitation to come to UBC to head
the Department of Economics. He was
dean of arts in 1969-70. When the
work of the federal Prices and Incomes
Commission ended in 1972, Dr.
Young returned to teaching and
research duties at UBC before accepting the post of assistant deputy
minister of the federal Department of
Finance responsible for natural
resource policy, industrial and
regional development.
He last visited UBC officially in
November, 1979, to speak to the Vancouver Institute as an official with the
International Monetary Fund.
