 1980 chancellor election repeat of 1978 race
UBC's triennial election for
chancellor early next year will be a
repeat of the last race held in 1978.
Vying again for the office will be
the incumbent, Hon. J.V. Clyne, and
Stan Persky, both graduates of the
Some 80,000 ballots will be
distributed early in the new year to
members of Convocation, basically
made up of all UBC graduates and
faculty members, who will elect the
chancellor, who sits on both the Board
of Governors and Senate, UBC's two
main governing bodies.
Election day — the day on which
ballots are counted in the election for
chancellor — will be Friday, Feb. 6.
Mr. Clyne, who has been UBC's
chancellor for the past three years, is a
1923 graduate of UBC, a former
member of the Supreme Court of B.C.
and retired chairman and chief executive officer of MacMillan Bloedel.
As a student, Mr. Clyne took part in
the 1922 Great Trek by UBC students,
which   resulted   in   the   provincial
government appropriating funds to
complete buildings at Point Grey to
house the University. He served three
terms on Senate between 1951 and
1960 and in 1961 was the recipient of
the Great Trekker Award from the
AMS for his contributions to University and community life.
Mr. Persky, a student from 1966 to
1973, holds two UBC degrees and was
active in student affairs as a member
of Senate and president of the Arts
Undergraduate Society. He was also a
teaching assistant in the Departments
of History and Philosophy.
He has taught at Northwest Community College in Terrace and is the
author of poetry and books on provincial and civic affairs.
In other election news, faculty
members are currently voting to name
two of their number to represent them
on the Board of Governors.

being converted to run on compressed natural gas instead
of conventional gasoline. Dr. Sheraton, who's senior
research engineer for B.C. Research, the applied research
organization located on UBC's south campus, is in charge
of the conversion scheme and will monitor mileage and
wear and tear on the vehicles for a year. McDonough will
service the trucks on a day-to-day basis. Provincial government is paying the cost of converting the vehicles and for
the natural gas that powers them.
Top UBC scholarship winners named
Selection committees have named
the 1980 winners of three top UBC
scholarships awarded for a combination of academic excellence and involvement in UBC and community
The $2,500 Sherwood Lett Memorial Scholarship, named after a former
UBC chancellor and Chief Justice of
British Columbia, was won by Mark
Crawford, a fourth-year honors student in Political Science.
The $1,250 Harry Logan Scholarship, named for the late Harry T.
Logan, a former head of UBC's
classics department  and one of the
University's original faculty members,
went to fourth-year Poultry Science
student Barbara Johnstone; and the
$2,000 Amy Sauder Scholarship was
awarded    to    Civil    Engineering

The recent decision by the Board of
Governors to put another $40,000 into
the UBC bursary fund means that
more than $600,000 will be available
in bursaries next year.
The University has more than
doubled the amount of bursary money
it has made available to students in
the past 18 months to $290,000. The
remainder comes from private donations.
About 1,000 students receive bursaries at UBC. They are awarded on a
basis of financial need, range from less
than $100 to $1,000, and are outright
grants which don't have to be repaid.
In general, they fill in the gaps after
government loan funds have been
given out. Much of the bursary money
goes to those students whose needs exceed the $3,500 maximum of the
government loan-grant program.
Byron Hender, director of the
financial aid office at UBC, said he
welcomed the increase in bursary
money, coming on top of the other recent increases in these funds. And he
said the Board's decision to make
representation to the federal and provincial governments to deal with deficiencies in the Canada Student Loan
Program could prove to be at least as
beneficial to students.
"This program is the critical source
of funds," Hender said. "That $3,500
ceiling just isn't high enough. About
10 per cent of the 5,000 UBC students
applying for assistance this year will
need more than $3,500 to see them
Under the government program, a
student is entitled to a maximum
federal loan of $1,800 and a maximum provincial grant of $1,700.
Hender said the number of students
applying for financial aid has dropped
from about one in three to about one
in four in the last couple of years.
"But those who do need money,
need more money," he said.
In addition to bursaries, UBC
awards more than 1,500 undergraduate scholarships each year, based on
scholastic achievement and worth
more than $700,000 in total.
Meanwhile, President Douglas Kenny said he did not think that higher
tuition fees would keep prospective
students from enrolling at UBC next

Senate told of plan for coal research centre
Fresh air and new life are stoking old coals at
UBC. Coal, the Cinderella fuel, is receiving special
Much of Canada's vast deposits of coal are in
B.C. Their development will mean new research
and technology and a huge demand for Canadians
with special training.
UBC has created a Coal Research Centre to administer coal research and graduate student training. UBC's Senate was informed of the development at its Nov. 12 meeting.
Acting director of the centre is Dr. Paul Watkin-
son, professor in the chemical engineering department. His major responsibility will be to develop an
administrative structure for coal research, and find
money for space, equipment and staff.
It is hoped that the centre will eventually move
into an addition to the coal and mineral processing
laboratory now under construction on campus.
The three-storey, 20,000-square-foot, $2.2-million
building is the only one of its kind in Canada.
At the moment, coal research is going on in a
number of UBC departments — mining and
mineral process engineering, metallurgy, chemical
engineering, soil science, mechanical engineering
and geological sciences. Some members of the
chemistry department are also interested in coal
The centre will have a board of management
consisting of the deans of faculties with a major interest in the centre — Applied Science, Graduate
Studies, Agricultural Sciences and Science.
Dr. Watkinson will report to Graduate Studies
dean Dr. Peter Larkin. Money to finance the centre will be sought from Victoria.
Senate approves pre-examination study period
UBC's Senate has voted to provide a
study break of a minimum of two days
before Christmas and April exams and
to shorten exam periods by increasing
the number of daily exam periods and
by staging exams on Saturdays, if
A total of seven recommendations
made by an ad hoc committee on examinations went before Senate at its
November meeting. Four were approved, one was deferred, one was
withdrawn and discussion of one was
postponed until the December
meeting of Senate.
Here are the motions that were approved:
• A study period of a minimum of
two days (including weekends) be inserted between the end of classes and
the beginning of the final examination
schedule in the December and April
periods. This study interval is intended solely as a period for students

AAPS gets
new prexy
Bob Black, a 24-year employee of
UBC, has been elected president of
the campus Association of Administrative and Professional Staff.
Black, who is an area supervisor for
the Department of Physical Plant, is a
former president of the UBC local of
the Canadian Union of Public
He succeeds Olga Leland, UBC's
communications supervisor, who is
also an employee of Physical Plant.
Other members of the new AAPS
executive are: Rayleen Nash,
Graduate Studies, first vice-president;
John Connell, Registrar's Office, second vice-president; Fran Takemoto,
Finance, treasurer; and June Prenty,
School of Nursing, secretary.
Members-at-large on the executive
are: Phil Sawkins, Physical Plant; Jo

and Recreation; Peter Davern, Education; and Rene Davis, TRIUMF.
to review and reflect upon the
semester's (year's) work and is to be
free of class meetings, examinations,
assignments or other responsibilities of
The original motion of the ad hoc
committee called for a study period of
"four to five days (including
weekends)." This was amended by a
motion from student senator Ian
Bakshi to read "a minimum of two
days (including weekends)."
• Departments and schools be requested to review their needs for common examinations with a view toward
eliminating unnecessary common exams and reducing the number of
course timetable sequences utilized by
multi-section courses offering common examinations, this review to take
place during the 1980-81 academic
• Examination periods be shortened by increasing the number of exam periods per day where necessary,
and by use of Saturdays, if necessary.
This motion, in its original form,
called for a shortening of the exam
period by increasing the number of
examination groups scheduled per
week and through full use of evenings
and Saturdays. The version approved
by Senate was proposed by the chairman of the ad hoc corhmittee, Dr.
Lawrence Jones of Commerce and
Business Administration.
• To assist in the implementation
of the recommendation for a
minimum two-day study period in the
December period, the President's
Standing Committee on Registration
be requested to consider means of
completing course registration prior to
Labor Day.
Postponed for discussion until the
December Senate meeting was a motion calling for final exam schedules
for December and April to be made
available to students prior to course
registration for the academic year.
A motion requesting the administration to institute an examination of the appropriateness of the standard time sequences presently utilized
for course scheduling was withdrawn
by Dr. Jones when President Douglas
Kenny, Senate's chairman, said he
had already initiated such a study.
He told Senate a review of course
scheduling had not been carried out at
UBC for 12 years and described lecture scheduling in some faculties as
"sheer anarchy."
Pending the findings of the lecture
schedule review, Dr. Jones said he
would defer a motion from the ad hoc
committee calling for exam scheduling to be based on a scheduling
method in which exam groups are
populated  by courses with  common
times in the course timetable.

Senate has referred back to its Committee on Student Awards a policy
statement on the terms or conditions
under which the University would accept awards for financial aid to
Convocation Senator J-F.
McWilliams, who chairs the student
awards committee, reminded Senate
that there had been repeated discus
sions at Senate meetings regarding
awards that gave preference to or appeared to discriminate for or against
one group of students or another.
The committee proposed that the
following statement be approved by
Senate and included in all relevant
University publications including the

does not rule out affirmative action in
regard to University awards.  Never

for next year, our tuition fees will still
be well below 10 per cent of our
operating costs. Only a very few Canadian universities will have lower fees,
and none of them comes close to UBC
on student aid," Dr. Kenny said.
"It is the policy of this University
that any person who meets the
academic requirements should not be
kept out for financial reasons."
According to figures published by
the Canadian Association of University Business Officers (CAUBO) for
1978-79, the most recent year
tabulated, the lowest tuition fees as a
percentage of cost were in Quebec.
UBC was the lowest for the rest of
Canada, at 9.09 per cent. The percentage at UBC dropped to 8.69 in
1979-80 and to 8.59 for the current
academic year, even though fees went
up in September.

Plans pondered to avert looming library crisis
Two options for new construction
aimed at averting a looming crisis for
UBC's library system are currently
under intensive study by a number of
University bodies.
If all goes well, these groups will
complete their work over the next two
months and further recommendations
will be considered by UBC's Board of
Governors when it holds its first
meeting of the new year on Feb. 3.
The recommendations will reach
the Board through President Douglas
Kenny, who is being advised by a
33-member committee he established
in 1979 to grapple with the problem of
library space requirements. It's
chaired by Prof. Peter Larkin, dean of
the Faculty of Graduate Studies.
That committee submitted an interim report to President Kenny last
May, having come to the conclusion
that if the present rate of acquisition
of books and other materials continues, the existing library system
would be full before the end of this
The Larkin committee recommended an immediate start on a
building program designed to meet
the needs of the library system until
the end of this century.
President Kenny lost no time in acting on the interim report. He ordered
the University's Department of
Facilities Planning to carry out
technical studies to provide more
detailed information on the feasibility
and costs of two construction plans
broadly outlined in the interim report.
The Larkin committee was asked to
make priority recommendations in the
fall based on the technical studies.
The Larkin committee identified
two construction options — labelled
Plan A and Plan B — which were
selected from a total of five plans proposed by facilities planning.
Central to both the options preferred by the Larkin committee is the
basic reconstruction of UBC's Main
Library, a rambling, mazelike structure, which has had two wings and an
eight-storey book-stack area added to
it since the central, stone-faced unit
was built in 1924-25.
Two proposals for new library construction at UBC, currently under study, call
for demolition of the north and south wings and eight-storey bookstack area at
rear of the Main Library. A proposed new six-storey structure would be built in
stages around the central "heritage" section, a campus landmark since 1924-25.
The building now fails to meet National Building Code and Fire Code
standards. A study carried out in 1979
found that if the Main Library was
upgraded to meet the standard of
both codes, the result would be a loss
of 60,000 square feet of floor area, a
worsening of existing space problems
and a severe disruption of library service.
The Larkin committee proposals
call for the demolition of the north
and south wings and the stack area
and construction of six floors of new
space that would provide for efficient
use of the book and other collections
housed in the building. The original,
stone-faced section of the building
would be retained as a "heritage"
structure, but would be extensively
renovated to conform to the surrounding rebuilt structure.
Plan A — the one which appears to
have the edge in the deliberations now
taking place — is based on the concept of the centralization of library
services and calls for construction of
two new sub-surface wings on either
side of the Ladner Clock Tower linking the Main and nearby Sedgewick
Library, a sub-surface building under
the Main Mall of the campus. This, of
course, in addition to the demolition
and reconstruction of the Main
Library outlined above.
The Larkin committee has come
down on the side of this plan "largely
on the argument that centralization of
library services is desirable from the
subjective perspective of users," and
because it would probably lead to the
greatest economy of operation and
contribute to the long-term need for
revitalizing the inner campus core.
Plan B, which is based on the concept of a partial decentralization of
library services, is predicated on the
construction of a new science library
as well as the demolition and reconstruction on the Main Library.
The new science library is proposed
for the site now occupied by the
movable, wooden buildings that house
the Institute of Animal Resource
Ecology on the Main Mall immediately south of the Biological Sciences
An integral part of Plan B is also
the reconstruction of the Main
Library in stages, the final phase of
the work being extensive renovation of
the heritage section.
However, reconstruction of the
Main Library will still require construction of a small-scale structure in
front of that building. This, together
with the construction of a new Science
Library, will enable the divisions
presently housed in the Main Libary
to be moved into the new structures so
that reconstruction of the Main
Library can proceed by stages.
The small-scale structure proposed
under Plan B will also provide additional permanent space to meet the
long-term needs of the Main Library.
A similar timetable for reconstructing the Main Library would also apply under Plan A, with divisions now
housed in that building moving into
the proposed wings linking the
Sedgewick and Main Libraries while
the phased rebuilding of the Main
Library proceeds.
Plan A continues to gather support.
The latest endorsement of it came last
week from the President's Committee
on Land Use, one of the bodies that
has been taking a close look at the
Larkin committee proposals.
Prof. Roy Taylor, chairman of the
land use committee and director of
the UBC Botanical Garden, said
there's general agreement that Plan A
is the way to go, providing adequate
provision is made to ensure that the
integrity of the area around the Main
Library is preserved through extensive
landscaping, although not necessarily
in its present form.
The land use committee also wants
one aspect of the Plan B retained —
the designation of the site now occupied by the Institute of Animal
Resource Ecology for future library
This reinforces the view expressed
by the Larkin committee in its fall
report that in the long run both of the
construction options outlined in Plans
A and B may ultimately be needed to
serve an expanding campus population. All that's left to decide is which
should come first.
Benefactors give UBC more than $9.5 million
Benefactors donated more than
$9.5 million to the University in the
1979-80 fiscal year.
The total includes gifts from corporations, associations, foundations
and individuals for student aid,
research, construction and teaching.
Included in the total is nearly
$500,000 from UBC students for debt
retirement on funds borrowed to construct the Aquatic Centre, the Student
Union Building and an addition to the
Graduate Student Centre.
Since 1928, UBC students have contributed more than $6.6 million to
fund or aid in the funding of 12 major
campus buildings, including Brock
Hall, the War Memorial Gymnasium,
the Place Vanier Residence and the
Thunderbird Winter Sports Centre.
More than half the 1979-80 total
from benefactors, nearly $5.5 million,
was for the support of UBC research
and nearly $2.4 million was earmarked for financial aid to students.
Just over $1.4 million was given to aid
various UBC construction projects.
The total also includes $456,308
generated by the UBC Alumni
Association through its annual Alumni Fund appeal.
UBC was also named as a
beneficiary in the wills of 35 persons in
1979-80. The total value of the bequests, some of them from UBC
graduates, was $1,259,780.
Details on private giving to the
University in 1979-80 are contained in
the booklet "Creative Giving," issued
by the University's Resources Office.
In  a  message  in  the  booklet  ad
dressed to "our friends in the community," UBC's president, Dr.
Douglas Kenny says continuing support from individuals and the business
community reflects "continuing confidence in the work of the University."
He adds: "In giving to the University, donors have the satisfaction of
knowing that they are contributing to
the creation of one of Canada's
leading centres of excellence."
Lecture series honors UBC geographer
The fifth in a series of eight symposia honoring the Arctic research
achievements of Prof. J. Ross Mackay
of UBC's Department of Geography
will be held next Wednesday (Nov. 26)
at 8:00 p.m. in Room 100 of the campus Geography Building.
The symposium, which began in
September, has the general title
"Frozen Northlands: Exploration and
Development." Next Wednesday's
speaker will be Prof. William
Mathews, a long-time member of
UBC's geological sciences department
and colleague of Prof. Mackay, whose
topic will be "On Scientific Method of
J. Ross Mackay."
For the past 30 years, Prof. Mackay,
who retires in June, 1981, has been
studying the permafrost which underlies half of Canada and other aspects
of the geology of the western Canadian Arctic, particularly the area of
the delta of the Mackenzie River.
He has been widely honored for his
work, which made fundamental contributions to the classification of
ground ice, to the understanding of its
growth, and to the Arctic landforms
that result from sub-surface ice.
The development of interest in exploitation of Arctic resources has
made Dr. Mackay's work of great
practical significance for northern engineering and environmental studies.
Hansen rolls to raise money
Rick Hansen, world-ranked
wheelchair athlete in track and field
and a fourth-year physical education
student at UBC, will be out to raise
money for his provincial sport governing body and fellow athletes on Saturday, Nov. 29.
Hansen will propel his wheelchair
20 miles through the UBC Endowment Lands in aid of the B.C. division
of the Canadian Wheelchair Sports
Association. Hansen started his
"Rickathon" last year and completed
the route in one hour, 51 minutes. He
hopes to better that time in 1980.
Hansen will start from the south
plaza of SUB at 12 noon on Nov. 29
and will travel to Shaughnessey Golf
Course via Wesbrook Mall, Thunder
bird Boulevard, West Mall and
Southwest Marine Drive. He'll follow
virtually the same route back to SUB,
except that he'll travel along University Boulevard on the return leg as far as
Acadia Road.
Pledges to the "Rickathon" should
be sent to the Canadian Wheelchair
Sports Association, 1200 Hornby St.,
Vancouver. V6Z 2E2. Call 687-3333,
local 290, for further information.
Hansen set a new world record for
the 800 metres in the 1979 Orange
Bowl wheelchair games held in
Miami, Florida, finishing nine
minutes ahead of the second-place
finisher. He also plays basketball and
volleyball in a wheelchair. OBCalendar
