Grant rises 6.53 per cent
UBC's general purpose operating
grant from the provincial government
has increased by 6.53 per cent over
last year.
President David Strangway told
Senate that the increase in the provincial operating grant, which provides the university with about 80
per cent of its total general purpose
operating budget, is greater than the
rate of inflation.
"On balance, it is reasonably good
news," Strangway said.
When the average 4.8 per cent tuition fee increase set for next academic
year is factored in, the overall budget
increase for 1990-91, which includes
revenue from all sources, is about 6.25
per cent, he said.
In addition, the grant increase includes $2.7-million specifically earmarked for the creation of 160 new
graduate positions at the university.
Public works and renovation budgets were also increased.
As well, the Education Faculty received increased funding to accommodate higher enrolments in both
the elementary and secondary teacher
education programs.
Enrolment quotas in education are
up sharply for next year to take in to
account projections which indicate
future teacher shortages.

announced that Hansen will be the first Rick Hansen National Fellow.
Older mothers produce
lefthanded babies: study
Women aged 40 and over are more
than twice as likely to give birth to left-
handed babies than younger women,
concludes a study by a UBC Psychology professor.
"As mothers grow older they are
much more likely to have a stressful
pregnancy and difficult birth. Lefthanders seem to be associated with
stressful births," said Stanley Coren.
Coren, whose findings are reported
in the current issue of the New England Journal of Medicine, based his
conclusions on interviews with 2,228
first year students enroled at the University of British Columbia over a period of about five years.
The students
were asked for
medical and
demographic information including their age
and their
mother's age,
and also whether
they were right-
or left-handed. Coren
"We found that as mothers grew
older, the risk of lefthandedness went
up markedly," Coren said. For women
aged 25-29, the chances of having a
left-handed baby went up by 11 per
cent, aged 30-34, they increased by 25
per cent and for those aged 35-39, the
chances went up by 69 per cent.
"Mothers 40 and over were 128 per
cent more likely to have left-handed
children than women giving birth in
the optimal age range of 17 to 24,"
Coren said.
Birth stress factors which increase
the likelihood of producing a southpaw include prolonged labor, multiple
births and prematurity.
"If it is the case that left-handers
result from these sorts of stresses, then
the clear implication is that it is some
sort of hidden pathology that is the
cause," Coren said.

KAON factory
wins approval
in joint study
A government-funded feasibility
study has concluded that the proposed
KAON factory at Triumf is scientifically sound and that its research and
economic benefits far outweigh its cost.
The two-year engineering design
and impact study began in 1988 under
an $ 11 -million agreement funded by
the federal and B.C. governments.
It provided technical specifications,
cost estimates and information on environmental, legal and economic implications of the project.
"The steering committee is of the
unanimous and strong opinion that the
Canadian and international scientific
community is ready and waiting for
the KAON factory to proceed. An early
decision in clearly needed," the study
The project, which would be built
at the existing Triumf site on campus,
is a high-intensity, medium-energy
particle accelerator that would generate many kinds of sub-atomic particles
including kaons.
It would enable scientists to do research into the fundamental nature of
matter and could result in spin-offs in
the fields of cryogenics, computer software, control systems and microelectronics.
Cost for construction of the facility
is estimated at $693-million over five
years, with annual operating costs after completion estimated at $98-mil-
lion. (All figures in 1989 dollars.)
Victoria has already committed
$90-million toward construction ofthe
KAON factory, with international
backers committed to $200-million.
The federal government is being asked
to contribute about $370-million over
five years.
Provincial government leaders on
hand for the release of the study said
the project would bring economic benefits to every region in the country
"This is Canada's opportunity to
contribute to world class science. The
world has said, 'We're ready.' Now
we need Canada to say, 'We're ready,
too,'" said Stan Hagen, Minister of
Regional and Economic Development.
During construction, the study said,
the KAON factory would generate up
to $550-million of Gross Domestic
Product, create up to 17,000 person-
years of employment and generate up
to $1.1-billion of industrial activity.
Federal Science Minister William
Winegard said he found the KAON
proposal "exciting" and hoped to have
a recommendation before cabinet in
the fall, with a decision on whether to
proceed with construction expected
later in the year.
Winegard said the project will be
considered in the context of Canada's
future involvement in subatomic physics and its overall scientific and fiscal
The feasibility study is currently
being reviewed by the Big Science
Committee of the Prime Minister's
National Advisory Board on Science
and Technology.
Need for
A Senate committee is investigating the need for a university ombudsperson.
Senator Paul Tennant, who put forward the motion, said the current system of student appeals is time consuming and is sometimes viewed as impersonal by students who do not understand its procedures. It also fails to
weed out some unwarranted complaints
or speed along those which are valid,
he said.
"I think we need to better serve the
needs of students," said Tennant.
The Alma Mater Society has an
established ombudsoffice, but Tennant
said that the position has no formal
role in the university and is seen primarily as a student advocate.
"We need an ombudsperson who is
independent, impartial and approachable," he said.
Senator Larry Weiler, speaking on
behalf of the President's Permanent
Advisory Committee on Sexual Harassment, urged Senate to extend the
proposed mandate of the ombudsperson to include other members of the
campus community, as well as students.
"There are a number of people who
could benefit from such a service on
this campus," Weiler said.
Senate's Academic Policy Committee will consider the motion. Final say
in the creation of a new position is up
to the Board of Governors. Tennant
recommended the AMS also be involved. UBC REPORTS June 14.1990       2
Bus Stop pours its last cup
The last cup of coffee left a bittersweet aftertaste for the staff and patrons at the Bus Stop Coffee Shop as
UBC's landmark dining spot closed
June 1 after more than 60 years of
"It was kind of sad, but the waitresses were too busy to get worked
up about it," said coffee shop manager Judy Finley.
More than 1,200 customers lined
up throughout the day to sample a
1960s menu pulled from Food Services' files.
Regulars perched on the Bus Stop's
orange-topped stools, downed 10-
cent cups of coffee and 20-cent sandwiches, and reminisced about all the
good meals and company they had
Roy Turkington, a Botany professor and regular patron for 10 years,
said he'd miss the friendly informality ofthe Bus Stop's dining bays.
"The waitresses certainly are a lot
of fun," he said, adding he rarely
missed a lunch hour at the coffee
shop, which is to be demolished and
replaced by the David Lam Management Research Centre.
Finley said that five former employees came back for the last day of
operation to help serve the 85 dozen
eggs, six cases of bacon, and 55
pounds of fish that customers went

"The whole department is upset
about it because it was a home away
from home for us," she said.
"The waitresses were just super.
They were like second mums to a lot
of our graduate students."
Shirley Louie, assistant director of
Food Services, said a waitress-service and fast food takeout restaurant is
slated to open in the new research
library early in 1991.
"Throughout the 25 years that I
have been associated with the Bus

Open House visitors familiar
with campus, survey finds
UBC's recent Open House attracted
visitors who are already likely be
making good use of campus facilities
and who believe UBC's research and
teaching benefits them directly, a
Commerce survey found.
Marketing students Farah Alibhai,
Craig Pollack and Inga Reili interviewed visitors during the three-day
event to find out why they had come,
what they enjoyed and what they
thought about the university.
The project was part of a third-year
marketing course, taught by Commerce
Professor Dan Gardiner. The three
students talked to 100 people to com-

Journal of the American Medical Association, Coren concludes that lefthanders are somewhat shorter and
lighter than right-handers.
Coren reviewed data on all 3,707
pitchers who played major league baseball up to 1975 to determine the relative body size of left- and right-handers.
"They run about half an inch shorter
overall and about three pounds lighter
than do right-handers," he said.

pile their visitor profile. Their report
was judged the best out of 19 submitted and received a cash award of $100
from the Community Relations Office.
Alibhai, Pollack and Reili found
more than 80 per cent of visitors surveyed were no strangers to campus,
having made use of the recreational
facilities, libraries, museums, theatres,
galleries, and computing facilities at
least once during the year. Only five
per cent of respondents, however, reported any other kind of campus involvement, such as participating in a
university board, committee or alumni
One third of the people surveyed
had attended a previous Open House
at UBC and must have done a good job
advertising this year's event to friends
and neighbors, since half the respondents said they heard about this year's
Open House by word of mouth.
Many people—even those who use
campus facilities and services—viewed
the event as an invitation from the university to pay a visit to the campus. As
one person said, "I liked having the
access and feeling welcome."
Most visitors surveyed said they
enjoyed the carnival atmosphere on
campus, but several got tired of walking and suggested implementing more
shuttle buses to distant points on campus. Other suggestions were for larger
venues for the more popular events;
walking   tours   of  UBC's   forests,
beaches and gardens; and more hands-
on interactive displays.
Demographically, 95 per cent of
respondents were under 50, in fact,
one half were 24 and younger. Of all
respondents, 67 per cent said they had
no children, but the majority of those
who did brought them to Open House,
indicating they saw the event as a family affair.

Knapp forest prepares for visitors
Resident beavers at the UBC/Malcolm Knapp Research Forest are
sprucing up their dam in preparation for a unique visitors' day Saturday, June 23.
For the first time in its history—
and for one day only—the forest will
open its gates to cars and allow visitors to take a self-guided driving
tour ofthe 5,157-hectare site.
Tour guide brochures, complete
with a map, will also be available at
the forest entrance.
The open house is in celebration
of UBC's 75th anniversary and festivities will include on-site entertainment, balloons and concessions.
The event is free, families are welcome, and there's plenty of room for
picnic lunches outdoors.
For skyhigh viewing of the research forest, helicopter rides will
be offered at a reasonable charge,
weather permitting. Walk-in visitors are also invited to enjoy the 32
kilometres of hiking trails.
Cars will follow a 10-kilometre
circuit with 12 display sites en route
illustrating some of the diverse research projects under way at the
forest. Researchers and volunteer
guides will be on hand to explain
the activities.
Visitors can learn about tree diseases which claim 12-million cubic
metres of wood from B.C.'s forests

affects forest ecology; and try their
hand at splitting cedar shakes.
In the ecological research area,
visitors will find some of the best

year old Douglas-fir.
One project on display is a joint
venture between the university and
the Greater Vancouver Regional
District and involves using treated
sewage sludge as fertilizer on tree
plantations, a study which could provide an ecologically sound means to
dispose of sludge.
The family of beavers built their
lodge and dam in the last two years
and visitors will be able to see where
they have gathered leaves and bark
for food and building materials.
But beavers aren't the only animals visitors can expect to see.
About 22 mammals make the
research forest their home—including blacktail deer, coyotes, and small
animals such as voles, shrews, chipmunks, squirrels and bats—and researchers have studied almost all of
them in the forest's wildlife studies
The forest also houses a variety of
birds including woodpeckers and

Because all wildlife is protected
in the research forest, visitors are
asked to leave their dogs and other
pets at home.

Book of Kells
ceremony July 1
There's an ancient Celtic word
still in use today,
"bias," that means
flavor or taste.
UBC will get a
little bias of Irish
culture when an
extraordinary replica of the Book of
Kells is presented
to the library in a
special ceremony
on July 1, Canada
The $16,000 facsimile is one of
1,480 copies made
of   the   original,
which has been kept at Dublin's Trinity
College since 1661. UBC's copy was purchased with funds raised by the local
Irish community.
The work of eighth-century monks,
the Book of Kells — a lavishly illustrated manuscript of New Testament
gospels — is considered a masterpiece
of medieval art. All but two of its 680
pages have ornamentation and art work.
But it is much more than a work of
art. As Irish as shamrocks, the book is
revered as a symbol of cultural survival
in a land where national feelings run
"The facsimile will be a spectacular

addition to the library's collection of fine
printing," said Anne Yandle, head of
the library's Special Collections Division and a Trinity graduate. "It is a
splendid example of Celtic art and lettering."
Fund-raiser John Kelly, a Vancouver
resident of Irish descent, said the purchase of the book and its presentation
on Canada Day represents the Irish
community's desire for more recognition of their role in the development of
this country.
"A lot of people don't know this about
Canadian history," Kelly said, "but at
the time of Confederation there were
more settlers in Canada from Ireland
and Scotland than from France, and
more from Ireland alone than from England."
Confederation itself was largely the
work of men of Celtic background, such
as Scottish-born John A. Macdonald and
Irishman Thomas D'Arcy McGee, he
Trinity College permitted a Swiss
publishing company that specializes in
fine art reproductions to make the facsimiles ofthe Book of Kells.
They used a photo-electronic process
that duplicates the pages on paper
closely resembling the original parchment.
Printed four pages at time, the copies
are painstakingly checked against the
original for the slightest differences. The
facsimiles are being bought by art collectors, scholars, libraries and investors.
UBC's copy will be on permanent
exhibit in the Special Collections Division of the library in an oak case that
will replicate 8th-century Irish cabinet-
The names of individual donors will
be inscribed by Celtic calligrapher Aidan
Meehan in a special book which will be
displayed alongside the facsimile.

July 10 to July 15.
Special Olympics strives to
promote and facilitate year-
round sports, fitness and
physical recreation for the
mentally handicapped.
At the 1990 games, mentally handicapped athletes will
have an opportunity to showcase their potential and capabilities. More than 800 athletes and 200 coaches from
across Canada are expected
to participate — 185 participants will be from British Columbia. In keeping with the
Olympic tradition, the games
are held every four years.
The athletes and coaches
are selected to represent each
of the provinces and territories across Canada. Each team
relies on the support of individuals, community groups,
and corporations which donate
the goods, services and funds
necessary for the participants
to attend the competition.
"We can all show our support for Special Olympics by
attending the opening ceremonies, July 11, and by joining
the cheering section at each of
the competition sites," said
Mary Holmes, director of marketing at UBC's Centre for
Continuing Education and a
volunteer member ofthe 1990
games organizing committee.
Competitions in aquatics,
powerlifting, rhythmic gymnastics and soccer will take
place at UBC. Bowling and
track and field events will be
held at other venues in Vancouver and Richmond.
Since its inception in 1968,
Special Olympics in Canada
has grown to include more
than 11,000 mentally handicapped athletes registered
nationwide. Community programs are supported by more
than 4,000 registered volunteers.

Schutz named director
of School of Phys. Ed.
Robert Schutz' appointment as director of the School of Physical Education and Recreation was approved
by the university's Board of Governors at its June meeting. Acting director since July 1989, Schutz formally
took over March 1, 1990 for a five-
year term.
A prominent Canadian scholar in
exercise and sport science, Schutz is
internationally known for his work on
the measurement of motor behavior,
the validity of scoring systems, mathematical analysis of sports strategies,
and the measurement of attitudes towards sport and physical activity.
Now 51, Schutz earned his BPE
from UBC in 1961 and his teacher
certification in 1962. He taught high
school in B.C. and Alberta for several
years, earned a Master of Science from
the University of Alberta, and in 1971,
a PhD from the University of Wisconsin. He joined UBC in 1970.
As director, his mission will be to
guide the school's continued development into a quality research unit dealing with the interdisciplinary study of
human kinetics and leisure studies.
One of the oldest physical education schools in Canada with one ofthe
largest undergraduate enrolments,
UBC's school was founded in 1946 to
educate physical education teachers for
the public school system and run intramural and extramural athletic programs.
But with the growth of sports sciences research, its focus of activity
shifted over the years from training
athletes and teachers to developing
expertise in areas such as as exercise
physiology, bio-mechanics, and motor
learning behavior—broad based research in human movement which was
not necessarily sports related.
Current faculty projects include
studies on abnormal gait and the dynamics of wheelchair propulsion, for
"We're interested in understanding
human physical movement of which
sports and exercise are a component,"
Schutz explained. Discussions are
under way to determine the school's
future direction, he said. "We will
continue to build on our strengths in
the sports sciences while maintaining
our involvement in leisure studies and
The school also has a tradition of
public service and involvement in
community recreation.
"We do have a social responsibility
to interface with the community,"
Schutz said.
The majority of the 31 faculty
members are active researchers, but
five people still hold joint coaching
appointments in Athletics and Sport
Services, a carryover from a time when
the two units were more closely tied.
"It's unrealistic now to expect faculty to both coach and research."
Schutz said. "You can't do both."
Like many other departments, the
school faces a large number of retirements over the next 10 years.
"There will be considerable renewal
and that's always productive," Schutz
said. "It's an exciting time to start new
Over the years the school and athletics have evolved into separate disciplines with different interests and goals.
That philosophical and administrative separation will soon become physical. Renovations to the War Memorial
Gym at the end of May will allow each
to occupy different areas of the same
"We will
continue to
share facilities
and cooperate in
other areas
where it is beneficial to do so,"
Schutz said.
the school may Schutz
have a new building on campus and to
that end a space requirement study is
currently under way. Plans also call
for the development of a PhD program.
Like many physical education faculty. Schutz is involved in national and
international organizations which
maintain links between the school and
sport governing bodies.
Former president of the North
American Society for Psychology of
Sport and Physical Activity, and a fellow of the Research Consortium of
A ANPERD and of the American Academy Physical Education, Schutz is
currently a board member, and former
president, ofthe Canadian Association
of Sport Sciences.
New Dentistry fund
to support oral health
UBC's Faculty of Dentistry is raising new bursary and endowment funds
to support educational and research
programs in the oral health sciences.
Specifically, programs that emphasize the special needs of students, encourage new and innovative approaches to teaching and research in
the oral health sciences and promote
measures to improve dental public
health throughout the world will receive the financial support from the
funds being raised.
The bursary and the endowment
fund will be named in honor ofthe late
Dr. S. Wah Leung, who became the
founding Dean of the Faculty of Dentistry at UBC in 1962, a position he
held until his retirement in 1977.
Dr. Paul Robertson, current Dean
of Dentistry, praised Dr. Leung for his
lifelong commitment to supporting
excellence in teaching, research and
patient care.
"Dr. Leung's leadership brought
international recognition to the faculty
for its teaching and research and, at the
same time, his service to the profession and the community received
worldwide acclaim."
UBC's Faculty of Dentistry maintains the largest dental outpatient clinic
in the province and despite its relatively recent history and small size, is
listed among the leaders in dental research in North America according to
the Medical Research Council of Canada.
A fund raising banquet in support
of the Dr. S. Wah Leung Bursary and
Dr. S. Wah Leung Endowment Fund
was held recently in Vancouver.
