Prince Charles to unveil sculpture, visit TRIUMF
Prince Charles will spend about four hours at
UBC on Tuesday, April 1, but if you want to
catch a glimpse of the heir to the British throne
then hope for a sunny day.
He is scheduled to arrive on campus at 12:20
p.m. at the Faculty Club, where he will attend
an invitational luncheon being given by
Chancellor John Clyne and Mrs. Clyne.
(The   main   dining   room,   lounge,   cocktail
lounge and snack bar of the Faculty Club will
not be available to members during the lunch
period April 1, but dining room service will be
provided downstairs in Salons A, B and C from
noon to 2:00 p.m. The downstairs cafeteria and
games room will be open as usual between 11:30
a.m. and 2:00 p.m.)
Prince Charles will leave the Faculty Club
about 2:30 p.m. for the Museum of Anthropology, where he will unveil the Bill Reid
sculpture "The Raven and The First Men." If
the weather is reasonable the Prince of Wales
will walk to the museum by way of the Rose
Garden at the north end of the Main Mall. If it is
raining, he will travel by car.
Prince Charles, after the unveiling ceremony,
will be taken on a tour of the museum. He is
scheduled to leave at 3:35 p.m. for TRIUMF.
After touring TRIUMF, he is scheduled to leave
the campus at 4:30 p.m. for the Bayshore Hotel.

Faculty and student friends raised their glasses Friday (March 21) in the lounge
of the Buchanan Building to toast UBC graduate Dr. Kay Brearley, who retires
June 30 after a career of more than 30 years as a teacher in the Department of
French. For the past 14 years she's been senior advisor in the Faculty of Arts
with the responsibility for giving final approval to the academic programs of all
Arts students. Other highlights of the day included a bouquet of roses from
Asian studies students Salim Jetha and Martha Bassett and a pair of season's
tickets for the forthcoming Vancouver Symphony Orchestra season from the
Arts Undergraduate Society.

moves to upgrade
two degree programs
A massive reorganization of the curriculum of the two major degree programs offered by the School of
Physical Education and Recreation
should be in place for students who
register for UBC's 1980-81 winter session.
Already approved by Senate, UBC's
academic parliament, is a restructured curriculum for the Bachelor of
Physical Education degree program,
which involves the introduction of six.
new required core courses in physical
education as well as the revision and
updating of existing courses.
The new curriculum for the BPE
degree represents a significant
upgrading of the academic program
of the school, according to its director
Dr. Robert Morford, who expects that
in the long run the new curriculum
will reverse the trend toward declining
enrolments for the BPE degree.
Aircraft
seeds UBC
cliff face
Aerial spreading of the Point Grey
cliffs with fertilizer and grass seed
began Tuesday — the second phase of
an $800,000, five-year program
designed to prevent further erosion
above Wreck Beach and Tower
Beach.
Expenditure for 1980 has been set
at $153,000, including a contingency
sum of $20,000, with $66,000 the
estimated cost of planting and fertilizing. Another major cost the first year
will be $20,000 for fencing along the
base of the cliff.
The removal of dangerous trees
along the top edge of the cliff was
completed earlier at a cost of $2,000
— $5,000 under budget.
Air Spread Services of Chilliwack is
handling the aerial spreading and expects to complete the job today, provided there are no delays because of
high wind, rain or poor visibility.
The aircraft is loading at Iona
Island in the Fraser River and will
drop 36,000 pounds of fertilizer and
3,300 pounds of grass seed in about 40
flights over the three days. The fertilizer is Wesago 4-4-5-4 from Green
Valley and cannot harm wildlife. It is
edible.
Also going up this week are the first
of a series of new signs directing people to beach access trails from the top
of the cliff. One new trail is being
built, just south of the Museum of Anthropology, making a total of four.
Project manager of the erosion control program is Neville Smith, director
of Physical Plant at UBC, who said the
fertilizing and seeding would cover the
mile of cliff face between the Fraser
breakwater and the northernmost
searchlight tower.
The erosion control plan was prepared by Stan Weston, a member of
the UBC Board of Governors, after a
series of public meetings, and has the
full support of the Wreck Beach Committee, which represents users of the
beach.
Six new professional courses, which
will allow BPE students the option of
concentrating in such areas as sport
management and exercise management, are currently being examined
by Senate's curriculum committee and
are expected to be in place when the
new program comes into effect in
September.
Also before the Senate curriculum
committee is what Prof. Morford
describes as a "massive revision" of the
school's other major degree program,
the Bachelor of Recreation Education.
The BRE program has been revised,    he    said,    with    a   view    to
Prof. Robert Morford
educating a specialized group of professionals whose job it will be to "initiate, promote and manage the growing need for community recreation or
discretionary-time opportunities as
opposed to dealing with specific sport
or exercise activities."
The proposed BRE program, which
should be in place by September, will
train administrators and leaders to
deal with recreation in a much
broader way than in the past, Prof.
Morford said.
It will give students the theoretical
background they need to make decisions and provide advice in the areas
of community recreation planning,
environmental land consideration and
management and population shifts.
The six new theory courses that will
be part of a required, 10-course core
program for the Bachelor of Physical
Education degree include such titles as
the Biodynamics of Physical Activity,
Sport in Canadian Society and
Physical Growth and Motor Development.
"I've always felt that physical
education as a university program has
short-changed itself in terms of its
knowledge base and occupational
outlets for its students by concentrating primarily on delivering services
to a client population between the
ages of 12 and 18," Prof. Morford
said.
"That kind of program is not only

SENATE
UBC's Senate has refused to approve a motion expressing its distaste
for publications and the Lady Godiva
ride sponsored by the Engineering
Undergraduate Society.
The same motion, which was narrowly defeated at Senate's March
meeting last week, also sought support
for "efforts by the administration of
the University and by students in order
to bring an immediate end to such activities, in a matter consistent with the
principles of the Calendar statement
on academic freedom." (See box.)
The Senate debate opened with a
statement by Convocation Senator
Joan Wallace, who rose to withdraw a
motion that asked Senate endorsement of a statement by the UBC Committee of Deans regarding EUS activities.
Calendar statement
\
Here is UBC's statement of
academic freedom which appears
in the University Calendar.
"The members of the University enjoy certain rights and privileges essential to the fulfilment of
its primary functions: instruction
and the pursuit of knowledge.
Central among these rights is the
freedom, within the law, to pursue what seem to them fruitful
avenues of inquiry, to teach and
to learn unhindered by external
or non-academic constraints, to
engage in full and unrestricted
consideration of any opinion.
This freedom extends not only to
the regular members of the
University but to all who are invited to participate in its forum.
Suppression of fbii freedom,
whether by instiuitioai of the
state, the officers of the University or the actions of private individuals, would prevent the
university carrying out its
primary functions. All members
of the University must recognize
this fundamental principle and
must share responsibility for supporting, safeguarding and preserving this central freedom. Behavior which obstructs free and full
discussion, not only of ideas
which are safe and accepted but
of those which may be unpopular
or even abhorrent, vitally
threatens the integrity of the
University's forum. Such behavior cannot be tolerated."
She said that after placing her motion on the agenda, she had learned
there were aspects of the statement by
the dean's committee that "not everyone would support," and she was
therefore withdrawing her motion in
favor of one proposed by Prof. Trevor
Heaver, of the Faculty of Commerce
and Business Administration.
Prof. Heaver said his motion had
some unavoidable ambiguities in
terms of conflict with the University's
academic freedom statement. The intent of the motion, he said, was to express support for both the administration's intent and the intent of some, if
not the majority, of students to change
future behavior on the part of the
engineers.
He said it was difficult to make
judgments about the EUS newsletter
and the "Red Rag" in terms of what is
legal and proper, but he said he had
no difficulty in identifying the Lady
Godiva ride as an illegal act which
could not be condoned by the University.
In the ensuing debate, a number of
faculty and student senators said they
supported the spirit of the motion but
were unable to vote for it because it
singled out the engineers for censure.
Dr.    S.O.    Russell,    of   the    civil
engineering department, said the implication that nothing had changed in
the past ten years in the applied
science faculty in regard to attitudes
toward women was false.
The atmosphere in the faculty has
changed noticeably, he said. The
engineers have issued a statement to
the effect that they intend to reform
themselves, and the latest issue of their
newsletter was "perfectly acceptable."
The motion before Senate, he
added, "might be viewed by the
engineers as the rest of the University
dumping on them all at once. Too
much pressure can be counterproductive."
Prof. Hugh Greenwood, head of the
geological sciences department, said it
was his impression that an increasing
number of women are taking an interest in engineering programs, where
they function fully as well as men.
He said the motion might be construed as an attempt to legislate
morality and for that reason he could
not support it.
Ms. Wallace said the motion had
nothing to do with morality but the
fact that engineering publications
depict women as sex objects to be used
by men for their own enjoyment. "The
fact that women are competent is
completely ignored in EUS publications," she added.
Prof. Paul Gilmore, head of the
Department of Computer Science,
said he too could not support the motion because it was "heavy handed."
He said the faculty as individuals and
as a whole must continue to confront
the EUS when its behavior is objectionable.
He added that other engineering
activities, such as the display the EUS
put on in the Student Union Building
in the same week as the Godiva ride,
should be encouraged.
President Douglas Kenny, replying
to a questioner who asked what administration actions Senate was being
asked to support, pointed to the statement issued by the incoming and outgoing EUS which followed consultations with the administration.
Within the spirit of a university, he
said, one had to rely on intellectual
persuasion "and only as a last resort do
you resort to other means, which I
would not rule out."
Law professor Donald MacDougall,
who was the final speaker in the
debate, said he felt the discussion had
lost sight of two important points, one
of which was the issue of censorship.
The motion (by Prof. Heaver), he
said, recognizes that within a University community one had to be tolerant
of a lot of offensive behavior and opinions.
Another legitimate concern that
had been lost sight of, he said, was
that Senate should be concerned with
any activities that discourage the full
participation of women in University
academic activities.
"The virtue of Prof. Heaver's motion,"   Prof.   MacDougall  said,   was
"that it did a pretty fair job of balancing those two interests."

The final report of a University-
wide committee struck by President
Kenny to prepare recommendations
on space for the UBC library system
should be completed in a month or
two, Senate was told at its March
meeting.
Dean of graduate studies Peter
Larkin, who is chairing the committee, said he hoped the report would
make some useful contributions to
policies covering library space over the
next two decades and "point out some
major directions that library building
will have to take."
Prof. Larkin referred to the library
space study in commenting, as chairman of the Senate Library Commit
tee, on the report of University
Librarian Basil Stuart-Stubbs, whose
annual report on UBC library operations reviewed "the good news and the
bad news" of the past decade.
In terms of good news, Mr. Stuart-
Stubbs said, the library's collection of
both books and microforms had
doubled in the 1970s. It had taken the
library more than 50 years to acquire
its first million volumes, he said, and
half of those were obtained in the
1960s. It had taken only ten years to
acquire the second million, he added.
Other good news:
• The collection was more accessible through improved loan policies;
• New retrieval systems based on
machine-readable information had
been started during the decade;
• The library had begun to convert
its catalogue to microfiche as part of a
plan that would link it to other libraries in Canada and in other parts of the
world; and
• New library buildings, notably
the Law and Sedgewick Libraries and
a major expansion of the Woodward
Library, had been completed in the
1970s.
The bad news of the decade, he
continued, was the problem of inflation and devaluation of the Canadian
dollar. He said the support of Senate,
the UBC administration and the
Universities Council had been "exceptional in attempts to save the collections development program from
complete disaster."
Another   effect   of   inflation   and
devaluation has been to increase the
percentage of the budget that must be
allocated to salaries, Mr. Stuart-
Stubbs said, which meant there was
less money to spend on other things.
Inflation, he said, has had no effect
on people's ability to write and think,
"one one of the anomalies the University will have to face is that knowledge
doesn't stop growing in respect to
libraries, new programs and the adoption of new courses."
Mr. Stuart-Stubbs said that in the
1980s he envisaged a larger, more
complex library system in terms of its
collections, which would expand in
the area of microforms and videodiscs.
He said there was no sign that
manufacturers were moving in the
direction of standardizing equipment
which could lead to undergraduate
courses in how to deal with machine-
readable information.
*     *     *
Senate has approved a proposal
which will move the division of
medical microbiology, formerly a unit
within the Department of Microbiology in the Faculty of Science, into
the Faculty of Medicine, where it will
be established as a division within the
Department of Pathology.
Senate was told that there will continue to be co-operation between
Science and Medicine in research activities and teaching and that the
move brings the division's status in line
with practice in effect at most Canadian universities and medical schools.

UBC museum gets travel grant
A $7,000 grant has been awarded to
UBC's Museum of Anthropology to
allow the museum to take its special
exhibition of the graphic works of
Haida artist Robert Davidson on the
road.
The grant is from the National
Museums of Canada, and will allow
the exhibition to first visit the Queen
Charlotte Islands, home of the Haida,
then the B.C. Provincial Museum in
Victoria.
It will then be offered to museums
and galleries across Canada.
Robert Davidson, born in Masset in
1946, and a descendant of the great
Haida craftsman Charles Edenshaw,
has won wide critical acclaim for his
carvings and original silkscreen
designs. UBCreports

Education
national
blindspot
Education in Canada is a "national
blindspot," UBC President Douglas
Kenny told a Washington, D.C., audience last weekend.
Dr. Kenny, in a speech delivered
Saturday to the fourth annual meeting
of the All-Canada University Association, an organization of graduates of
Canadian universities now living in
the United States, said funding for
universities below the inflation rate
means problems for Canada as a
whole, not just for the universities.
"It means that with knowledge
doubling every 10 years, and with
other countries spending far more on
research and development, Canada is
going to fall further behind in the
knowledge game," Dr. Kenny said. "It
means that new ideas, which are the
forerunners of new industries, new
jobs and a healthier economy, are being put on the back burner."
CANADA HELD BACK
He said Canadian society is being
held back by shortages of highly
qualified and talented professionals
such as scientists, accountants,
engineers, foresters and computer
specialists. Take the necessary steps to
rectify this, he said, "and many of our
economic problems would disappear."
The UBC president said Canada
imports twice as many engineers as are
graduating from Canadian universities, because the schools lack money
and space.
Using his own university as an example, he said UBC received almost
5,000 new applications for graduate
work last fall, of which 3,000 were
judged admissable. "But we had space
and budget to admit only half of
them."
Dr. Kenny said there are 200 faculty
vacancies in schools of commerce
across Canada, including 13 at UBC,
"yet in all of Canada this year we will
graduate only 12 Ph.D.'s in Commerce."
NOT GOOD ENOUGH
Dr. Kenny said that more than 10
per cent of Americans are university
graduates, whereas the figure for
Canada is less than 5 per cent. "Canadians should make up their minds that
this is not good enough." he said.
"As a nation, we should stop thinking of a university education solely in
individual terms, and start thinking
about what a higher level of education
could do in terms of national
priorities. Above all, we must enter
the technological race with other nations by increasing the amount of
research and development in
Canada."
The president said Canada's gross
expenditure on research and development — "the fuel for new ideas" —
had declined remarkably between
1967 and 1978, and this had led to a
growing deficit in Canada's trade in
high technology products.
He said the short-lived Conservative
government had made "some welcome
moves" in increased research funding,
"and we are hopeful tht the new
Liberal government will follow their
good example."
REMAINS OPTIMISTIC
Dr. Kenny said he remained optimistic about the future of universities in Canada because progress for
Canada would demand a greater role
for higher education.
"The universities, particularly
because of their research capabilities,
can and must play an important part
in achieving our national and provincial goals."

years alter graduating from the
University of Toronto in 1948 with
first class honors in biology. He was
awarded the degree of Doctor of
Philosophy by Cambridge University
in 1952, the same year he joined the
B.C. Game Department as a division
biologist.
From 1953 to 1966, he was an
honorary lecturer, curator and assistant and associate professor in the
former Institute of Fisheries, which
was incorporated into UBC's Institute
of Animal Resource Ecology in 1969.
The Institute is an interdisciplinary
Dr. Ashok Aklujkar
unit in the Faculty of Graduate
Studies concerned with research and
teaching in resource ecology. Its
teaching and research staff is drawn
from a wide range of UBC faculties
and departments, including zoology,
agricultural sciences, forestry, community and regional planning, commerce and business administration,
economics and geography.
Dr. Aklukar, 39, was born in India,
where he was awarded the degrees of
Bachelor and Master of Arts by the
University of Poona. He was awarded
the degree of Doctor of Philosophy by
Harvard University in 1970.
He lectured at the University of Illinois and at Michigan State Universi-
Rorri McBlane
ty before joining the UBC faculty in
1969.
Mr. McBlane, 33, is a graduate of
the University of Alberta, where he
was awarded the degree of Bachelor of
Education and a graduate diploma in
inter-cultural education and teaching
English as a second language.
He is currently a Master of Education degree candidate at Alberta in
the field of international education.
He has travelled widely in Europe,
Africa, New Zealand, Australia and
the South Pacific. From 1969 to 1975
he taught school in Ghana, West
Africa, and at two locations in Papua,
New Guinea.

restrictive, it also doesn't make sense
in • contemporary society because the
recreation and physical-activity needs
of the public literally span the period
from birth to death."
PE theory courses haven't been entirely absent from the school's curriculum in the past, Prof. Morford
added, "but the information was not
being packaged to produce an up-to-
date, theoretically grounded physical
ed. major."
Emerging all across North America,
he continued, are the kinds of concentrations — sports sociology and
economics and human motor control
are examples — which have been built
into the new UBC program.
"And    from    now    on,"    he    said,
"students will be introduced to
physical education theory in the first
year, whereas in the past such courses
weren't taken until perhaps the second
or third years."
Prof. Morford attributes declining
enrolments in the BPE degree program to the "general job scare" and
the fact that most prospective students
see teaching as the only job outlet
after graduation.
He said he's hopeful that there will
be a gradual increase in enrolment for
the BPE degree program as the school
expands its contacts with high schools
and community colleges and describes
job opportunities for graduates in
fields other than teaching.
"It's been my experience," he said,
"that when much tougher academic
programs were introduced at the
schools where I taught in the United
States, we lost some students initially,
but within three or four years we
began to get a better grade of student
because the new program was offering
intellectual challenge."
Dr. Morford said he also anticipated that the new program would
attract new faculty members and
enable those now on the faculty of the
school to upgrade their qualifications.
"We've also created opportunities
for much greater specialization in the
faculty by allowing our teachers to
concentrate on what they do best and
letting them get on with it," Dr. Morford said.
The revised BPE program does not
affect the number of units 69 —
needed to obtain a degree. Within the
total, however, non-PE theory courses
have been reduced from 36-42 units to
30-33 units, PE theory courses have
been increased from 12-18 units to
21-24 units, while PE activity courses
remain the same under the new program at 15 units.
*     *     *
Physical education isn't the only
academic unit at UBC making
changes in its curriculum. Students
entering the Faculty of Law in
September will be confronted with a
revised program which the chairman
of that faculty's curriculum committee
says reflects changes in the practice of
law in Canada.
Prof. John Hogarth said the revised
first-year curriculum in law will be
followed this fall by proposed changes
in the second and third years of the
law degree program which will go to
UBC's Senate for approval in the fall.
Prof.   Hogarth  said  the  new  first
year program expands the study of
criminal and constitutional law and
will integrate legal writing into existing first-year courses.
He said the revised curriculum
reflects the increasing importance of
legislation and government policymaking, the growth of administration
and special tribunals to deal with the
problems of a complex industrial
society, the growing importance of
constitutional law in Canadian
federalism, and the increasing importance of the relationship between the
individual and the state in such areas
as civil liberties.
"We're also the victims to a certain
extent of a problem created by our
own success," Prof. Hogarth added.
"Professors have created a series of
case books and other materials that
are used by students and as a result it's
felt they've begun to lose the skills of
research. By offering an expanded
program of library research and integrating legal writing into existing
courses, we're aiming at re-emphasizing these skills as part of legal education at UBC."
First aid course overbooked
The first of a series of monthly first-
aid training courses for UBC departmental safety reps and employees
associated with accident areas is
already overbooked.
The course, which meets for the
first time today from 12:30 to 4:30
p.m. in the conference room of the
UBC Aquatic Centre, will be repeated
in April and May on dates to be announced later.
Cal Barber, of Employee Relations
and secretary of UBC's safety, security
and fire prevention committee, said
the non-certifiable course is designed
to stimulate safety awareness and provide employees with basic tools for
dealing with life-threatening situations.
Aquatic Centre director Jim
Bremner will act as course instructor
and cover such areas as the principles
and techniques of emergency care,
respiratory care and resuscitation and
control of hemorrhage and shock.
The cost of the course is $2 to cover
materials.
Building awards made
Three UBC buildings have been
recognized in the "Festival of Architecture" awards program of the Royal
Architectural Institute of Canada.
Honor awards in the competition
have gone to the Sedgewick Library
and the Museum of Anthropology,
while the new UBC Aquatic Centre
received an award of merit.
Architects for the three buildings
were Rhone and Iredale for the Sedgewick Library, Arthur Erickson and
Associates for the anthropology
museum, and Carlberg Jackson and
Partners for the Aquatic Centre. UBCalendar

Some writers point to libraries of their books, Mary
Ann Nowakowsky displays egg cartons full of her
writings. UBC's Museum of Anthropology has a
display of her writings — 50 of them — in the form
of Ukrainian Easter Eggs or Pysanka. The largest
egg above is a goose egg which tells in pictures and
symbols of Ms. Nowakowsky's own design the happenings and consequences of the Last Supper. Using
a batik process, this egg took 36 hours over six days to
"write". The middle-sized duck egg (far left) is "a
restoration of the past" told in the use of three different styles of crosses, and the small hen's egg tells
about church architecture. All the eggs were made
with a friend in mind to whom the eggs will be given
— usually as Easter wishes and gifts. The display
continues until May 11.
