The head of UBC's Centre for Human Settlements,
Dr. Peter Oberlander, was a guest on CJOR's Dave
Barret Show Thursday, October 30. Dr. Oberlander
talked about homelessness and the problems involved
in providing shelter for homeless people. On Friday
October 31, UBC President Dr. David Strangway was
a guest on the CKNW Gary Bannerman show. He
discussed the new university publication 'Engine of
Recovery'. A cassette recording of Dr. Strangway's
interview is available at the Community Relations
Four students win
Four major UBC scholarships have been awarded
to students who have combined academic achievement
with extracurricular service activities.
Peter Tonseth, a third-year student in Medicine,
is the 1986 winner of the $4,500 Sherwood Lett
Memorial Scholarship, awarded annually to a student
who reflects the academic achievements and leadership
qualities of the late Mr. Lett, who was UBC's chancellor from 1951  to 1957.
A second—year medical student, Andrew Cheng, is
the winner of the $2,000 Harry Logan Memorial
Scholarship, awarded annually to a student who
combines good academic standing with participation
in sports and other student activities. Prof. Logan,
* after whom the award is named, was one of the
original members of the UBC faculty who taught
until 1967. He died in 1971 at the age of 83.
Jane Mair, a fourth—year Arts student, has won
the $3,000 Amy Sauder Scholarship. The $1,500 Jean
Craig Smith Scholarship has been awarded to fourth-
year Commerce student Gregory S. Yen.
Donor gives to Crane
A recent corporate donation has increased the
Crane Library Endowment Fund by $5,000, bringing
the fund total to more than $12,000. The employees
of William M. Mercer Ltd, a national compensation
consulting firm, made the donation in memory of the
company founder, William Mercer. Two of Mercer's
children are UBC alumni and, as students, they made
use of the Crane Library services for the visually
impaired. The Crane Library is hoping to supplement its budget for recording texts and research
books by using annual interest accrued from the
Endowment Fund.
UBC Engineering team hope tests
win battle for the America's Cup
In three month's time the world's attention will be
focused on Fremantle, Australia, where yachts from
around the world will battle for the America's Cup.
One group of individuals at UBC who will watching the race with special interest are Prof. Sander
Calisal and his colleagues in the Mechanical Engineering Department. »
Since 1984 Calisal, Prof. Robert Evans and
research associate Dan McGeer have carried out tests
with Canada H yacht designer Bruce Kirby to
improve the performance of our nation's entry in the
America's Cup race.
Calisal and his colleagues participated in wave
tank testing of a scale model of the yacht in
Escandido, California earlier this year and have
carried out computer simulations of how the yacht
would perform in open seas.
Bruce Kirby had high praise for the UBC team in
a quote that appeared in the January '86 issue of
Sailing Canada Magazine:
"Yacht design has always been a mix of art and
science. My strong point is the art, and now that
we have the scientific expertise of these very bright
people at UBC, plus the use of their sophisticated
computer panelling program, I am confident that will
we have the very best 12—metre that modern
technology can produce."
Helping to engineer an America's Cup victory for the
Canada II yacht is UBC mechanical engineering
professor, Dr. Sander Calisal, pictured above at the
wave tank testing facilities at the B.C. Research Ocean
Engineering Centre on campus.
Community Relations reaches public
through diversified media programme
Where else in Canada, except at UBC, can you
find top ranking cancer researchers next to one of the
finest collections of West Coast Indian Art, and both
a stones—throw from an Olympic swimming pool?
Sharing UBC's many dimensions and strengths
with the community is the task of the Community
Relations Office. This year they are implementing
several new programmes to expand UBC's profile
within the community, and promote the image of the
university as a top calibre institution.
"Our goal is to maintain a strong communication
programme that supports the aims and objectives of
the university," said Community Relations Director
Margaret Nevin. That means reaching the public in
a variety of ways and targeting information to
specific audiences.
The message goes to the community in three
forms: through public information programmes, university publications, and by hosting special events.
This year, Community Relations has started several
new initiatives in each area.
The broadest section of the community is reached
through the public information programme. Community Relations sends news and photo releases, highlighting university research and events, to local,
provincial and national media. "Stories are rewritten
in several ways to make them appropriate for specific
media markets," Nevin said. Provincial weekly
newspapers, for example, receive ready—to—print
formatted stories on topics of regional interest, such
as UBC research projects that relate to B.C.'s
resource industries.
Community Relations is also placing items in trade
journals, ensuring that stories on business, science and
other areas reach speciality publications.
In addition, a series of mini—radio documentaries
are scheduled to be released early next year to more
than 250 radio stations across  Canada.     The  docu
mentaries are hosted by Dr. David Suzuki and highlight a variety of research projects currently under
way at UBC. Mini video—documentaries are also to
be developed for distribution to provincial television
Talk shows are also an important way to gain
increased profile for key UBC people, and the
Community Relations Office is working closely with
local television and radio talk show producers and
hosts, people such as Gail Hulnick on CBC's Early
Edition, Jack Webster on BCTV and Gary
Bannerman of CKNW's Gary Bannerman Show.
Some publications from the Community Relations
Office, have undergone recent major changes to
update their text and format. Revised university
brochures include Basic Facts, the reference guide
which answers the most frequently asked questions
about the university; and the Industry Liaison
Brochure which describes the highly successful liaison
programme between industry and the university.
UBC Reports was also revised in response to a
readership survey carried out earlier this year.
Two new publications are the Engine of Recovery.
released in September, and the President's Report on
the Library, scheduled to be released by December.
Both highlight UBC's strengths, contributions and
commitments to the community. The Engine of
Recovery describes key areas at UBC which play a
part in the current economic revival of B.C. The
President's Report on the Library outlines the vital
role that the library plays in serving the needs of the
academic community.
The office will be preparing UBC's first annual
Community Report intended to profile the university's
research,   and   outline  new   developments   in   teaching

Peking Opera coming
Peking Opera performer
Stories of love, domestic comedies
and war epics may sound like typical
fare for an evening of television viewing
but, they are also basic ingredients for
an art form rarely seen in the west —
classical Chinese Opera.
Next spring, Vancouverites will have
the opportunity to experience this art
form first hand, when the Senior
Research Group of Chinese Opera and
Music brings an exciting program of
Peking Opera, acrobatics and martial
arts to UBC's three—day Open House.
Sponsored by the Department of
Asian Studies, the Peking Opera performances will star Mr. Chun Cheung,
who has over forty years experience in
studying and performing Peking Opera.
He will be bringing an outstanding
Chinese   acrobat   from   Michigan,   Ohio,
and three Chinese musicians from Hong
Kong, to add their skills to the
Vancouver team.
"We are very excited by the
opportunity to present this opera at
UBC," says Mr. H.T. Chen, Department of Asian Studies. "Peking Opera
or Jingju, as it is generally known, has
been popular in China for about two
•hundred years. The art combines music,
singing, dancing and acting. Actors
and actresses with heavy symbolic facial
make—up, dressed in colourful and
often elaborate and luxurious costumes,
sing and act out the stories on stage.
"The music incorporates many styles
originating in different areas of China,
from Anhui, Jiangxi, Hubei and Shaanxi
Provinces. The art was patronised and
developed in Peking, hence the name
Peking Opera.
"In recent decades, however, performances have been less and less
common, because fewer young people
wish to undertake the long and
arduous training necessary to become a
performer. We feel all the more privileged, therefore, to be able to bring
this fine traditional form of art and
entertainment to Vancouver during
Open House."
The Peking Opera performances will
be one of the many highlights of next
spring's campus—wide Open House,
which is already shaping up well. All
twelve faculties will be involved, and
campus attractions such as the Museum
of Anthropology, the Geology Museum
and the Aquatic Centre will be open
free of charge. Several groups will be
providing on—site entertainment for
children and adults alike, including hot
air balloon rides and puppet shows.
If you would like to become involved-
with   Open   House,   or   would   like   more
information,  please  send  a  note  to  The
Open        House Committee,        c/o

Administration Building.
Funds help deaf students
The Western Institute for the Deaf
will be able to provide better services
for over 7,000 people this year—
thanks to the United Way. "Funding
received from the United Way campaign is the only flexible money we
have," said Lynn Siddaway, Executive
Director of the WID. "It allows us to
develop new services and prove their
The interpretative service was initiated through United Way funding.
Currently five hearing impaired or deaf
students at UBC, and many more at
other institutions, are accompanied to
lectures by WID staff who sign what
they can't hear. WID provided one
UBC student with a FM system
attachment for their hearing aid and a
microphone for the professor, enabling
the student to hear the professor
The 51 staff at the WE) also operate a message relay program enabling
deaf people   to  place   and  receive  tele
phone calls. They provide hearing
assessment tests, fit hearing aids, and
run career and employment counselling
programs. In addition, UBC students
from Social Work, Audiology and
Speech Sciences regularly complete their
program requirements by working at
the WID on course practicums.
If the WID receives enough funding
from the United Way this year, they
plan to develop a job finding club.
This support group will assist hearing
impaired people to find employment,
and give advice on attending job
interviews. "Ideally we would also like
to have a staff person in Kamloops to
serve the need of the Interior,"
Siddaway said.
Money raised through the UBC
United Way campaign can help to start
projects like these. Donations are still
welcome at the Financial Services
Department on the third floor of the
General Services Administration
I am writing to comment on the
nature of the times in which the
document 'Engine of Recovery', UBC
President David Strangway's statement
on the mission of the University, was
Certainly I welcome the thrust of his
message in speaking up for this
university's main strength, its faculty.
But is he aware of the level of our
Dr. Strangway compares a complex,
multi—faceted university like UBC to a
tree, both requiring healthy roots for
survival. But the only nourishment of
late has been stick and stone stew.
The legacy of continued restraint is
resentment, easily catalysed to anger.
At a recent meeting, the faculty
voted overwhelmingly for a motion
expressing "disgust" with the University
administration (and        Board        of
Governors) for their mismanagement  of
our affairs.
The issue here is not only monetary,
although certainly the deplorable slide
in faculty salaries in the past three
years must stop. Leadership and the
autonomy of this university are also
issues. Placing value on all deserving
faculty, and most are, whether blessed
or not by Victoria's "centre of excellence" fairy, is long overdue.
The continued dedication of these
people is essential to the quality and
survival of this university, far more
than the misguided 20 per cent salary
increase to 17 Killam Prize winners
each year.
Otherwise, David Strangway's
"Engine of Recovery" will be nothing
more than just another glossy brochure.

Co-op program puts students
and industry together
The importance of good technical
writing in industry today was recently
recognized when three UBC students
received awards for the quality of their
technical reports, prepared while they
were working for Canadian companies
under the UBC Co—operative
Education program.
The three winners were Christine
Koch, fourth year student in Agricultural Economics, for her report on
"Current Issues in Canadian Wheat
Marketing" for Consumer        and
Corporate Affairs Canada, Ottawa;
Bruce Matsugu. third year Electrical
Engineering student, for "The effect of
N2 Impregnation on Electrical Tree
Initiation" written for the National
Research Council, Ottawa; and Tom
O'Brien, fourth year Electrical
Engineering student for "IBM Circuit
Board Tester: Test Module Functional
Description" prepared for Dynapro
Systems Inc. in Vancouver.
"Selecting three out of fifteen truly
outstanding technical reports was very
difficult," said Glenn McGinnis of
Imperial Oil, one of the companies
making the awards, "but it was exciting to read such clearly written reports
about a most impressive array of technical topics."
The awards were presented by three
members of this year's Co—op
Employers' Advisory Council: IBM,
represented by Mr. Jim Grey, Branch
Manager, B.C. Industry; Imperial Oil,
represented by Mr. Glenn McGinnis,
Supply and Technical Sciences Manager,
loco Refinery; and Northern Telecom
(Edmonton), represented by Mr. Dan
Cullen, Director, Account Development,
Western     Canada. The     Employers'
Advisory Council, formed in 1980 to
advise the UBC President on the
development of Co—operative
Education, currently has 24 senior
executive—members representing large
and small companies.
Since January 1986 UBC has placed
close to 150 Co—op students with
approximately 65 employers in
Engineering, Computer Science, and
Agricultural Sciences in British
Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and
Ontario. In January 1987 the first;
Honours Physics Co—op students will
join the Computer Science and
Electrical Engineering students in year-
round Co—op placements bringing the
total placements to 200 in the next
academic year.
"The new year-round programs,
made possible by two grants, one from
Canada Employment, and one from the
B.C. Ministries of Labour and Post-
Secondary Education are very well
received by employers and are putting
the UBC programs in the mainstream
of Co—op in Canada," says Maryke
Gilmore, director of programs.
Students interested in the Co—op
programs are invited to attend a Coop information meeting on Thursday,
November 6, 12:30 p.m., Room 200,
Computer  Science   Building,   or  come   to
the Co-op Office, Room 213 in Brock
Co-op winners are:   Bruce Matsugu (left), Christine Koch and Tom O'Brien.

and outreach programmes. It will be
distributed province—wide as an insert
in B.C.'s daily newspapers. Community
Relations are also preparing a
publication called UBC Today which
will focus on UBC's past and present
achievements, and its contributions to
Canadian society. UBC Today will be
revised every three to five years and
targeted to government and business
leaders, as well as alumni and potential
An intensified media relations programme is helping media outlets get
more information faster. Community
Relations organizes media receptions
inviting key people in the media to
meet with innovative UBC researchers,
to increase awareness of UBC's leading
edge research. MLA Days is a similar
programme providing MLAs with the
opportunity to meet students and faculty and learn more about the how the
university benefits the province.
Media tours are also important.
When UBC President David Strangway
serves as the university ambassador
outside      the      lower     mainland,      the
Community Relations Office arranges
media interviews to ensure regional,
provincial or national coverage.
Community Relations are heavily
involved in the planning for next year's
campus Open House, working with-
other members of the university community to provide a strong publicity
campaign to attract alumni and visitors
from all over B.C.
In addition, Community Relations
provides public relations counselling for
the university community and liaises
with business and government leaders.
The office handles hundreds of calls
each month from reporters and writers
looking for UBC experts in a particular
field or seeking story ideas.
Building public support for the university is the key objective of the
Community Relations Office. "Public
support can only be generated by raising public awareness of the outstanding
contributions of UBC to the economic,
social and cultural life of the province,"
Nevin said.

Killam Research Prizes recognize outstanding faculty
Dr. Strangway
Names will shortly be announced of
the 17 UBC Faculty members who will
be receiving Killam Research Prizes this
year for excellence in their research
"The objective is to recognize within
the university that we have outstanding
researchers, whether senior or junior."
said UBC President, David Strangway.
"We want to celebrate their accomplishments."
The Killam Research Prize will be
awarded annually to 17 faculty who
will receive the $20,000 prize in two
parts, $10,000 the first year and the
remainder the following year. The
prize may be held only once by any
faculty member. Total costs of the
award amount to $170,000 this year
and $340,000 in succeeding years.
"It's a prize for real accomplishments." said Dr. Strangway. It is
also one of the few awards which will
recognize the achievements of junior
researchers. About half of the Killam
Research Prizes will go to faculty who
have made significant achievements in
the early stages of their careers.
"What we're really saying is: the
university has a lot to celebrate by
recognizing the accomplishments of
some of its faculty." Dr. Strangway
Nominations for the Killam Research
Prizes are made by UBC Deans of
Faculties. The twelve members of the
Faculty Awards Committee, augmented
by twelve representatives of the faculties, are responsible for selecting the
winners.     This  year's  recipients  will  be
announced by the President's Office
within the next month.
Unlike many academic awards, the
Killam Research Prize monies are
awarded without stipulation. The prize
may be used for equipment, research
activities, travel, or retained for whatever purposes the recipient wishes.
"This gives them a degree of flexibility
that    is    hard    to    find." said    Dr.
Strangway. "Funding without strings
attached gives people a tremendous
advantage. The freedom of choice is
The Killam Research Prize originates
from a $13.5 million endowment to
UBC made by the estate of Dorothy J.
Killam ten years ago. Five Canadian
universities received a share of the $100
million estate.
