Ottawa puts up $1 million
or UBC forestry studies
The federal government is putting tip $1
million to promote advanced studies in
forest economics and policy at UBC.
->      Federal environment minister Charles L.
i. Caccia announced the grant Monday, Feb.'
27. He said the studies to be carried out in
UBC's Faculty of Forestry under Prof.
Peter Pearse are aimed at meeting an
urgent need facing Canada's most
important and currently ailing industry.
The forest industry is undergoing
LJ;  profound change, the minister said.
T%i.-:     "To regain our nation's dominance in
the industry, we will have to make
substantial investments in new plants and
highly-trained people.
"We will use new technology and better
policies to recapture our competitive edge."
Traditionally, timber and forest products
manufacturing — cornerstones of
fa ^Canadian economic development and the
major force behind the B.C. economy —
have been largely taken.for granted, he
said.
"In the past, Canadian producers
enjoyed an advantage over foreign
competitors in international markets for
,L forest products because of the vast supply
^.of natural timber in Canada," Mr. Caccia
said.
"But those supplies are dwindling and
the cost of harvesting what is left is rising
alarmingly.
"At the same time, we are facing new.
competition. Timber production in low-
^, cost regions like the southeast United States
^^,continues to expand, and new suppliers
like Brazil will shift patterns of
international supply and demand.
Prof. Pearse said that Canada's six
forestry schools have well-established
programs in forestry and wood science,
harvesting and management.
But the most urgent problems facing the
forest industry do not fall within the   ,
traditional fields.
"The challenges to our industry are the
economics of producing new crops of
timber, product manufacturing, marketing
and public policy,"- Prof..Pearse said.
"Nowhere in Canada is-there a substantial
concentration of teaching and research
expertise in these areas. The aim of the.
federal grant is to correct that."
Pivotal to the UBC research is the Forest
Sector Analysis Project that was begun at
UBC six months ago with support from the
Canadian Forestry Service.
A research team, led by Prof. Pearse,
has begun to analyse the cost of future
timber supplies and the trends in demand
for Canadian forest products in domestic
and international markets.
In his new study of Canada's forest
sector, Prof. Pearse is working with Dr.
Sten Nilsson, a visiting scholar from
Sweden's Royal College of Forestry, and
Dr. Douglas Williams, an adjunct professor
of Forestry at UBC and senior partner of
Forest Planning Systems Ltd., Vancouver.
Prof. Pearse conducted the Royal
Commission into B.C. forest resources
which resulted in complete revision of the
province's forest legislation in 1978, and in
1982 he completed another major Royal
Commission inquiry into the Pacific
fishery;
He was recently named chairman of a
three-person advisory committee which' will
carry out a major study of Canada's water   '
resources for the federal ministry of the
environment. The water and forest studies
are both part-time, and together will
occupy his full attention, he said.
Prof. Pearse said a series of recent
initiatives "will make UBC an international
centre for forest industry research and
training."
B.C. budget leaves
'formidable' deficit
The higher tuition fees announced last
month will stick, there will be layoffs
throughout the University, and students
will find it more difficult to go to university
— especially students from- outside the
Vancouver andVictoria areas.
That's what, the provincial budget
means.
The general purposes operating grant to
the three universities for 1984-85 was cut
five per cent, to $285,943,000. The
Universities Council of B.C.,: which
determines how that, sum will be shared by
UBC, Simon Fraser University and the
University of Victoria, says it doesn't yet
have enough detail from Victoria to
apportion the grant, but UCBC chairman
Dr. Bill Gibson says a five-per-cent cut for
each seems likely.
"A five-per-cent reduction in the grant
still translates into a deficit of formidable
proportions," said Dr. George Pedersen,
UBC president. "However, until we are
advised finally and definitively by UCBC
on our allocation for 1984-85, further
speculation is counterproductive."
In his budget speech, finance minister
Hugh Curtis also announced that as of
April 1, 1984,%B.C. will no longer provide'
grants to needy university students;
henceforth, only loans will be available.
Dr. Pedersen said this will hurt students
who don't live within commuting distance
of a university the most, since their
expenses are much higher than those of a   .
student able to live at home.
Stephen Leary, chairman of the Pacific
Region, Canadian Federation of Students,
termed the move to abolish grants "the
Rehabilitation
experts here
March 8, 9
Members of the National Research
Council's associate committee on research
and development for rehabilitation of the
disabled will meet at UBC on March 8 and
9, arid they are interested in your views.
A public forum is scheduled for 7:30
p.m. on Thursday, March 8 in the
auditorium of the Psychiatric Unit, Health
Sciences Centre Hospital, for anyone
interested in the needs of the disabled and
in rehabilitation research and development
related to sensory, motor, mental or
emotional disabilities.
Dr. Tali Conine, director of UBC's
School of Rehabilitation Medicine, said
that there is a need for government
agencies to understand better the practical
problems experienced by disabled persons
and rehabilitation professionals.
"Although our committee is not a
funding body, it does advise the
government about funding for
- rehabilitation research," she said.
The committee is chaired by Dr. David
Symington.
greatest attack on post-secondary education
in B.C. ever."
He said an average student will amass a
debt of $20,000 in four years. Repaid over
a 10-year period at a 10-per-cent interest
rate, the total would come to more than
$34,000.
Meanwhile, negotiations have been going
since November between the University and
the Faculty Association to determine
criteria and procedures for the termination
of appointment for financial exigency.

Future builders.
That's the general theme of this year's Open
House at the University of British Columbia,
which for 1984 features the Faculties of
Agricultural Sciences and Forestry and the
Engineering school.
Open House runs for three days — Friday,
March 9, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Saturday, March 10,
10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Sunday, March 11, 12 noon to
4 p.m. The first day is primarily for secondary
school and community college students, but the
general public is also welcome. Special tours for
schools can be arranged through Iris Thomson at
228-2980.
Professors and students of Engineering,
Agriculture and Forestry have assembled more
than 100 displays and exhibits, many of them
being of the 'hands on' variety.
Visitors can play computer games, collect a
free Douglas fir seedling or a potted begonia,
inspect a logging helicopter and heavy logging
equipment, make their own waves, play chess
against a robot or check out a model of B.C.
Place Stadium, showing the pressure on the dome
and demonstrating how and why pedestrians are
affected by the wind.
Tours of TRIUMF, the world's largest
cyclotron, will also be available, with a shuttle
bus running every half hour from the Open
House information centre on Main Mall to the
TRIUMF site on Wesbrook Mall.

With close to 1,800 students, UBC's
Engineering school is by far the largest
of the three areas featured in the 1984
Open House.
You won't find all of the
Engineering displays in one building,
but it will be well worth your while to
make a complete circuit of the
displays.
You can watch welding by a robot
or welding by friction. You can make
your own waves and you can watch
some fascinating research that takes
place in wind tunnels. You can even
take home a medallion made of
powdered copper turned solid via
pressure and heat.

Agriculture
Once again this year, the Faculty of
Agricultural Sciences has more female
students than male — and the reason
seems to be that women like animals.
Although there are onlv marginally
more women in food science, they
dominate animal science and the pre-
veterinarian program.
Agricultural economics, plant
science, agricultural mechanics,
poultry science, soil science and
landscape architecture all have more
men enrolled than women.
In total, the faculty has 222 women
students and 167 men this year.
Agriculture has mounted some
fascinating displays, ranging from live
animals (sheep, cows, pigs) to a
demonstration of how to measure a
raindrop. You can sample a hard-
boiled quail egg, get solutions to
problems you may have with your
houseplants, or learn how to 'candle'
chicken eggs.
Most of the agriculture displays and
exhibits are located in the MacMillan
Building (see 'Agriculture' on the
map) but you will find others in the
Horticulture Building and adjacent
greenhouses.

largest cyclotron, will be available on
each day of Open House.
A bus will leave every half hour
from the Open House Information
Centre on Main Mall for TRIUMF,
which is located south of 16th Avenue
on Wesbrook Mall.
Once at TRIUMF, visitors are free
to wander on a self-guided tour of the
site. A tour guide book will be given
to each visitor, containing basic
information on each of eight tour
stops and directions on how to get
from one stop to another.
There will also be a guide at each of

open for snacks and refreshments. UBC Reports February 29, 1984
Forestry
There are just over 400 students
enrolled in UBC's four-year program
leading to a degree in Forestry,
including 77 women.
Students and faculty have worked
together to show you a broad
representation of the type of research
taking place in Forestry, and they have
also arranged to bring a, logging
helicopter to campus, along with a
display of heavy equipment used by
loggers.
Forestry has also arranged with the
Ministry of Forests to have
RAPATTACK on campus for Open
House. You can watch students rappel
from a low-flying helicopter in a
simulated attack on a forest fire. The
idea is to get to the fire scene quickly,
rappel by rope from the 'copter and
then start cutting fire breaks and
setting up a landing pad for bigger
helicopters.
-Forestry shares the MacMillan
Building with Agriculture, but look
for more Forestry displays in the small
wooden buildings behind the
MacMillan Building, and in adjacent
parking lots.
• Snowmelt during rain-on-snow.
