Happy birthday to us ... . Members of the Student Health Services staff
recently celebrated the first 'birthday' of their move to new quarters in the acute
care unit of the Health Sciences Centre Hospital. Over 90 students, faculty and
hospital staff members came in for a cup of coffee and some cake during the
afternoon. Gathering around to cut the cake are Student Health Services staff
members: from left to right, Mary Steel, Kathy Brand, Maureen Narayan,
Audrey Fell, Santosh Sahai, Dr. C. Brumwell and Vera Gilder.
Assistant registrar retires
Agreement reached
on Discovery Park
More than 100 friends and
colleagues of UBC's assistant registrar,
Edith Allen, gathered in the Graduate
Student Centre Thursday (June 18) for
a reception in honor of her retirement.
A print by retired UBC artist Sam
Black and other gifts were presented
to Mrs. Allen by Registrar Ken Young.
Mrs. Allen joined UBC in May,
1953, as a stenographer II and was
promoted to administrative assistant in
July, 1964, and to supervisor of
admissions in 1967. In 1970 she was
appointed assistant registrar for the
University.
Throughout most of her career at
UBC, Mrs. Allen was responsible for
the admission of foreign students and
the evaluation of credentials awarded
by foreign institutions.
Succeeding Mrs. Allen as assistant
registrar is Peter Hennessy, who
assumes his new duties July 1.
Mr. Hennessy is no stranger to the
I    UBC Registrar's Office. He served as
an admissions officer in 1979 and 1980
and returned to UBC as senior
admissions officer in November, 1980,
after spending three months in a
similar post at Simon Fraser
University.
Discovery Park UBC became a fact
last week when the University and the
Discovery Foundation signed a lease
that establishes a 56-acre research
park at the southeast corner of the
campus.
President Douglas Kenny said, "The
University welcomes the initiatives of
the Government of British Columbia
in advancing opportunities for
research in the province. We see it as
a great opportunity for this University
to help establish British Columbia in
the forefront of technology for the
year 2000 and beyond.
"Central to the lease is a set of
development criteria designed to
ensure that Discovery Park is
developed and occupied in a manner
consistent with the University's goals
for research, as well as those of British
Columbia and Canada," Dr. Kenny
said.
"The lengthy negotiations leading to
the agreement have taken full note of
University concerns as well as those
expressed by the wider community."
Dr. Kenny said the agreement calls
for tenants to emphasize the
development of advanced technology
related to the expertise of UBC faculty
members. Other important objectives
include contributing to Canadian
technological developments,
particularly with respect to B.C.; the
enhancement of educational programs
for students, particularly at the
graduate level; and the fostering of
collaborative research among
government, industry and the
University.
"UBC offers one of the greatest
collections of brainpower in this
country and the possibilities for
bringing this talent to bear on the
development of high technology
industry in our province are
tremendously exciting," he said.
"Discovery Park UBC will definitely
attract more research in science and
high technology to the University."
Dr. Kenny said UBC has been
closely involved in helping the
province develop its present economy
based on the exploitation of natural
resources. To cite one example, he
said, UBC graduates have discovered

Computer from
Lornex adds
new dimension
Lornex Mining Corporation has
donated a Fox 2/30 computer system to
the Department of Mining and Mineral
Process Engineering at UBC.
Lornex used the computer at its
Highland Valley mine and it was given to
UBC by Lome H. Hunter, Lornex vice-
president and general manager of the
Highland Valley operation. The
computer will be used at UBC in the
teaching of principles of supervisory
control systems in mineral processes.
Lornex secretary C.W. Burge said the
company hoped the gift would encourage
students to study mining and mineral
processing and that the well-being of the
industry as a whole would be furthered.
Andy Mular, a professor in UBC's
Department of Mining and Mineral
Process Engineering, said the computer
will enable the department to initiate a
lab section for a fourth-year course which
deals with the application of automatic
control to mineral processing.
"Until now, it's been solely a lecture
course because we just didn't have the
equipment to set up a lab. Now that we
have the computer we will be able to put
together a lab section which will
hopefully be offered in the 1982-83
academic year," said Prof. Mular.
Prof. Mular said the computer system
will also be incorporated into graduate
research projects to study new control
strategies involving mineral processing
circuits unique to B.C.
UBC color film earns two awards
A 20-minute color film produced by
UBC's Department of Information
Services has earned two awards, one
national and one international.
The film, A University Is, received
an Award of Excellence from the
Canadian Public Relations Society for
its "high quality in design and
content."
The Council for Advancement and
Support of Education (CASE), which
has its headquarters in Washington,
DC, gave A University Is a Special
Merit Award.
Although the setting for the film is
UBC, the University is identified by
name only in the credits at the end.
The film shows the many and varied
aspects of a student's life at a
university — in the classroom, in
residence, on field trips, watching
football, swimming, etc.
The 16 mm film opens and closes
with shots of spring congregation at
UBC.
Executive producer of A University
Is was Brant Ducey, director of
Information Services. Peter
Thompson, UBC's community
relations officer, was production
coordinator.
The film has been well received by
secondary school students and other
audiences throughout the province.

Orientation program
set for summer
More than 1,000 students who will
begin their academic studies in
September will get an advance look at
the UBC campus and its facilities in
July and August under an orientation
program run by the Student
Counselling and Resource Centre.
The program gets under way July 7
with full-day sessions from 9:30 a.m.
to 4:30 p.m. until July 16, when half-
day sessions will take place daily for
the remainder of the summer at 2:00
and 7:00 p.m.
Special weekend programs, which
give incoming students an opportunity
to stay in residence and have an
introduction to UBC life, are designed
for out-of-towners. Weekend programs
commence July 11, 18 and 25 and
Aug. 1, 8, 15 and 22.
Cost to the students is $5 for the
daytime program and $25 for the
weekend program, which covers the
cost of room and meals. Last year,
nearly 950 students attended the
sessions.
During the sessions, new students
have an opportunity to meet students
already registered at UBC, talk with
faculty members, tour the campus and
participate in workshops on such
topics as study habits, campus
residence life and involvement in
student activities.
The Student Counselling and
Resource Centre has also scheduled
two orientation programs for the
parents of new students on Aug. 1 and
29. Parents will have the opportunity
to meet faculty and counselling staff
and to raise concerns and ask
questions about UBC. A $5 charge
includes lunch.
Counsellor Jim Jamieson directs the
program sponsored by the Student
Counselling and Resource Centre, the
Alma Mater Society and UBC
faculties. For further information, call
228-4840.
UlwvUVviy      continued from
mineral resources in the province
worth billions of dollars.
"The University now is looking
forward to helping the province enter
a new phase of its economic life by
assisting in creating an economy that
is based more on knowledge than on
the abundance of nature," Dr. Kenny
said.
The province, through Discovery
Foundation, has four research parks.
The other three are at Simon Fraser
University, the University of Victoria
and on government land adjacent to
the B.C. Institute of Technology.
The Discovery Foundation is a nonprofit society organized by the
provincial government to stimulate
research into science and technology.
Its subsidiary, Discovery Parks
Incorporated, will operate the four
research parks.
Discovery Park UBC is bounded by
16th Avenue on the north, the
TRIUMF cyclotron project to the
south, Wesbrook Mall on the west and
the University's boundary with the
University Endowment Lands on the
east. The area is totally UBC property.
President Kenny said the agreement
extends UBC's co-operative research
with industry. A significant amount of
UBC research is commissioned by
industries across Canada and some
organizations have already established
their own research efforts on campus.
These include B.C. Research;
Agriculture Canada; the privately-
owned Forintek, previously operated
by the federal government; Pulp and
Paper Research Institute of Canada;
federal Department of the
Environment, Fisheries and Oceans;
Canadian Wildlife Service; fisheries
research group of the provincial Fish
and Wildlife Branch; and TRIUMF.
UBC receives a total of more than
$30 million in research funds from a
variety of sources and the amount
increases significantly each year. This
amount is the second largest received
by more than 50 universities in
Canada.
President Kenny said UBC's
expertise could attract research in a
number of particular areas.
In medicine a promising area is
page 1
biotechnology which can mass produce
at low cost such biological chemicals
as insulin. Other research could
involve biomedical engineering devices
such as artificial heart valves,
automated wheel chairs, artificial arms
and legs, and safety and personal
health monitoring devices for use in
hospital operating rooms which
require high illumination at low
temperatures.
Pharmaceutical research could
develop radioisotopes. TRIUMF will
soon begin the manufacture of
radioisotopes for the commercial
medical market under an agreement
with the University and Atomic Energy
of Canada Ltd.
In engineering, UBC's Coal
Research Centre will attract industrial
research into new uses for coal. This
work could stimulate associated coal
research at Discovery Park UBC.
Other engineering research could
include precision machine tool
technology for automated
manufacturing as well as research into
microprocessors and integrated
circuits.
New agricultural products could be
developed. So could "fine" chemicals,
extremely high quality laboratory
chemicals used in industry, hospital
and university laboratories. Such
products are not as yet manufactured
in Western Canada.

Museum admission
prices forced up
The UBC Museum of Anthropology
is increasing its admission rates as of
July 1, the first such increase since the
museum was opened five years ago.
"This increase is unfortunate but
unavoidable," museum director
Michael Ames said. "Museums face
rising costs just like everything else."
He said revenue from admissions
covers only about 10 per cent of the
operating costs of the museum.
The new rates will be $1.50 for
adults, $1 for students (Grade 8 and
up) and 75 cents for children and
senior citizens. Group rates will also b<
increased accordingly, to half the
individual rates.
There will be no increase in rates
for school groups booked by teachers,
however, and the museum is
continuing to offer free admission for
individuals and families every
Tuesday, 12 noon to 9 p.m.
The UBC Museum of Anthropology
is the largest university museum in
Canada and attracted more than
152,000 visitors last year.
Two special exhibitions will be on
view at the museum all summer.
On loan to UBC from the National
Museum of Man until Aug. 30 is the
travelling exhibition "Hunt Family
Heritage: Kwakiutl Art." The
exhibition consists of 35 silkscreen
prints and three wood carvings. The
works depict the mythological
animal/human beings of the Kwa-
guilth people, a sub-group of the
Kwakiutl Indians of Vancouver Island.
Also on view until September is a
special exhibition in the textile gallery.
Selected textiles have been chosen to
demonstrate various techniques,
including tie-dye cloths from West
Africa, Inuit sewn-fur clothing,
appliqued molas from Panama, and
batik and ikat cloths from Indonesia.
Archie Peebles
dead at 76
Prof. Archie Peebles, a 39-year
member of UBC's Department of Civil
Engineering from 1931 until his
retirement in 1970, died on June 10 at
the age of 76.
A native of Scotland, Prof. Peebles
enrolled at UBC in 1925 and
graduated with the degree of Bachelor
of Applied Science in civil engineering
in 1929. He returned to UBC in 1932
for two years of study for the degree of
Bachelor of Arts.
He was awarded the degree of
Master of Science by Iowa State
College in 1939, eight years after he
joined the UBC teaching staff in the
Faculty of Applied Science.
In 1948, Prof. Peebles was the coauthor with Prof. J. Fred Muir, former
head of civil engineering at UBC, of a
report for the City of Vancouver on
parking problems in downtown
Vancouver.
Prof. Peebles is survived by his wife,
Marjorie, a sister and several nieces
and nephews.
