Volume 25, Number 3. Jan. 31, 1979. Published by Information Services, University
of B.C., 2075 Wesbrook Mall, Vancouver, B.C. V6T 1W5, 228-3131. Jim Banham
and Judith Walker, editors. ISSN 0497-2929.
A giant sculpture depicting the
Haida legend of the creation of
man is being carved behind the
scenes at UBC's Museum of Anthropology by Gary Edenshaw of
Masset in the Queen Charlotte
Islands. The work is being supervised by noted B.C. artist Bill
Reid, who created the miniature
version of the sculpture pictured at
left. According to the Haida
legend, the raven that dominates
the sculpture discovered and released man from a clam shell.
When complete later this year, the
sculpture will be on display in a
specially-created rotunda in the
UBC museum. Carving is being
carried out with a gift from Dr.
Walter Koerner, a long-time
benefactor of the University and a
former member of the Board of
Governors.
Summer
pay rates
increased
The provincial government has increased the monthly pay rates for
students who will be employed under
the 1979 Youth Employment Program.
Applications for the summer
employment program should be
available shortly in the offices of
UBC's 12 faculties, according to Dick
Shirran, director of the Office of Student Services and campus coordinator for the 1979 program.
Pay rates for students in first and second year have been increased from
$550 to $650 a month; for third,
fourth and fifth-year students from
$650 to $700 a month; and for
graduate students from $750 to $775 a
month.
Mr. Shirran said he expects that
UBC will receive in 1979 the same
amount of money as it did in 1978,
"plus or minus 10 per cent." Last year
UBC got $1,500,000 to employ about
700 students.
He said projects suggested by
students or faculty members must be
related to the student's educational or
career goals and promote the
economic well-being of the province.
He emphasized that all projects
must be supervised by a full-time
member of the University's academic
or administrative staff to be eligible
for funding.
Completed application forms for
the 1979 program must be returned to
UBC faculty offices by Feb. 28 to
enable faculty committees to screen
proposals. Approved proposals are to
be returned to Student Services by
March 9 so that the government can
be informed by March 16.
Station
aims to
expand
UBC's student-operated radio station, CITR, has embarked on an
$8,000 fund-raising program as part
of its plan to improve its coverage both
on and off the campus.
CITR submitted an application for
a low-power FM broadcast licence to
the federal Communications Department and the Canadian Radio-
television and Telecommunications
Commission (CRTC) in November,
1978. The Communications Department has approved technical details
related to the proposal and it's expected the CRTC will hold public
hearings on the CITR application in
the spring of this year.
At present, CITR broadcasts on a
closed-circuit system to the Student
Union Building, parts of Totem Park
Residence and to the north and south
towers of the Gage Residence. The
CITR signal is also distributed in the
Greater Vancouver area by Premier
Cablevision and can be picked up at
95.9 on the FM dial, if you have a
cablevision hookup.
The new installation would provide
a good-quality FM signal to all areas
of the UBC campus and to FM sets in
the West End and the western side of
the city as far as Granville Street.
The $8,000 CITR needs for new
equipment has to be raised independently of the Alma Mater Society, which doesn't have the funds
available for the project.
CITR official Greg Plant asks interested members of the University
community to support the CITR application by writing to Joe Pateraude,
Acting General Secretary, CRTC, 100
Metcalfe St., Ottawa, K1A 0N2. A
copy of the letter of support must be
sent to CITR-UBC Radio in the Student Union Building. UBCreports

Getting a proposal for a new
academic program through all levels
of University and outside approval
"could take all of someone's teaching
career," UBC's Senate was told at its
January meeting.
Dr. Jon Wisenthal, chairman of
Senate's curriculum committee, made
the remark while introducing proposed curriculum changes at Senate's
Jan. 17 meeting.
He said that if a proposal for a new
program was not approved at Senate's
January meeting a whole year would
elapse before it could be offered
because of the strict deadlines imposed by the Universities Council of
B.C., which must approve new programs and request funds for them.
He added that the curriculum committee hopes people "won't be
discouraged from making new proposals in the knowledge that so much
lead time is required."
He was supported later in the
meeting by arts dean Dr. Robert Will,
who said that in some cases he had
been waiting four years to hear from
the Universities Council on a proposed
program.
Discussion of proposed curriculum
changes and new programs took up
most of Senate's two-and-a-quarter
hour meeting on Jan. 17. What
follows are brief descriptions of the
most important changes, which must
be approved by UBC's Board of
Governors and, in some cases, by the
Universities Council.
AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES.
Senate approved proposals to modify
requirements for the bachelor's degree
in the faculty. These include: A
change in the minimum units required for graduation from 62 for majors and 68 for honors to 68 units for
all students; deletion of majors and
honors course curricula in favor of a
single curriculum; and introduction of
a scheme for awarding honors standing on graduation based on grades obtained in third and fourth years.
ARTS. Senate approved extensive
changes for majors and honors programs in sociology. Sociology 200, one
of eight new courses to be introduced,
will be the sole introductory course for
the major in sociology and will lead to
a set of required "core" courses designed to provide sociology majors
with background to complete the rest
of the program.
The most contentious issue in the
sociology proposals proved to be a
course in statistics, which the curriculum committee recommended for
approval "with the proviso that in the
event that Senate and the relevant
faculties should formulate a policy on
the campus-wide teaching of statistics
courses, the provision of elementary
statistics for sociology students may be
altered."
Senate eventually approved a mo-
Report on new UBC degree clarified
The editors of UBC Reports regret
if readers were misled by a report that
appeared on page 2 of our edition of
Jan. 17, which stated that UBC will be
the first Canadian university to offer
"an undergraduate degree in oceanography."
The statement was included in a
report on a December Senate debate
which resulted in approval of a motion
to transfer the Institute of Oceanography from the Faculty of Graduate
Studies to the Faculty of Science,
where it will function as a Department
of Oceanography, effective April 1.
Institute director Prof. George
Pickard said the new department does
not propose to offer a Bachelor of
Science degree in oceanography as
such because there is virtually no de
mand for graduates trained in general
oceanography and because such a
degree is strongly opposed by almost
all academic oceanography groups.
He said a general bachelor's degree
in oceanography is "too broad a field,
encompassing as it does the application of all the basic sciences to the
study of the ocean."
He    said    the    new    department
planned to prepare programs for com
bined honors in a basic science with
electives chosen from oceanography
offerings, "so that the student on
graduation with a Bachelor of Science
will be ensured of a solid background
in basic science."
This is a prerequisite for proceeding
to the graduate work which will con
tinue to be oceanography's prime
responsibility. Prof. Pickard added. It
will be a year or two before these combined honors programs will pass
through all the approval stages so they
can be offered.
tion by Dean Will approving the
statistics course for the 1979-80
academic year only and providing for
establishment of an ad hoc committee
"to study and report on the offerings
in statistics in the various faculties and
departments of the University and to
report to Senate no later than
November, 1979."
Also approved were seven new
courses in Asian studies, four of them
dealing with Hindi-Urdu language
and literature.
COMMERCE AND BUSINESS
ADMINISTRATION. Senate ap
proved extensive changes in the curriculum leading to the Bachelor of
Commerce degree, proposed after a
two-year study by two faculty committees. The new program involves
changes in the pre-Commerce year as
well as the four-year degree program
without lengthening it or changing its
total unit value.
EDUCATION. Senate approved a
new concentration in Italian, reflecting the fact that the language is now
taught in four B.C. school districts.
FORESTRY. Approved were
changes in the faculty's third- and
fourth-year specialization program in
wood science and industry.
GRADUATE STUDIES. Senate
approved in principle a proposed
Master of Engineering program in
clinical engineering designed to train
engineers in skills needed to work in
the health sciences.
*     *     *
UBC's Faculty of Education is giving serious consideration to proposals
for the training of teachers made in
the 1978 report of a committee
chaired by Dr. Malcolm McGregor,
former head of UBC's Department of
Classics.
Dean of Education Dr. John Andrews told Senate at its Jan. 17
meeting that a recommendation from
its admissions committee that admission to education follow at least one
year of university or college studies
was one of the proposals made in the
McGregor report, which was prepared
by a committee of the Joint Board on
Teacher Education at the request of
the provincial ministry of education.
The Senate admissions committee
recommended that its proposal be
received at the Jan. 17 meeting but
not be debated until the Senate
meeting on Feb. 14, "by which time
the dean of the Faculty of Education
would have the opportunity of
presenting the reaction of his faculty
to it."
Dean Andrews said there had been
no advance consultation with his
faculty on the admissions committee's
proposal and he termed "ridiculous"
the one-month time limit to obtaining
the reaction of his faculty to it.
He said the faculty already had the
proposal under consideration, adding
that it was also looking into the
possibility of dropping both the first
and second years of the present education program with students entering at
the third-year level.
He said the proposal made by the
McGregor committee and the admissions committee would affect only
about 100 students because the
number of people admitted to the
faculty increased in the higher years so
that approximately 1,000 students
graduated each year.
Senate then approved a motion to
refer the admissions comittce's proposal to the faculty for consideration.
Dean Andrews said the faculty would
return to Senate with new admission
proposals after all recommendations
had been thoroughly discussed. UBCreports

Women join ranks of
trafficHsecurity patrol
Wilhelmina Doedyns, left, and Sylvia Reed  will soon be patrolling the campus
as full members of the Traffic and Security corps.
There'll be two new faces patrolling
the campus soon as Wilhelmina
Doedyns and Sylvia Reid join the campus patrol.
Ms. Doedyns, the first woman
patrolperson to be appointed to the
UBC staff, began her training last
month. Now that her uniform has
been delivered, she's joined the 40
other patrolpersons who attend to difficulties and keep the campus secure.
(See story this page.)
Wilhelmina Doedyns had been a
building services worker for the past
four-and-a-half years on campus,
mostly working graveyard shift in the
Student Union Building, and she's
looking forward to the challenge and
change her new position will bring.
She said she'd seen the patrol position listed on the Employee Relations
circular and asked herself, "Why can't
a woman do that job?" Her interview
with Traffic and Security superintendent Dave Hannah proved she was
qualified and Ms. Doedyns began her
month-long training program in
December.
Ms. Reid started her training last
week. Like Wilhelmina Doedyns, she
had been a service worker with
Physical Plant for several years, working a steady graveyard shift.
"We've never had anything against
women being patrolpersons," Mr.
Hannah said, "but it's been a problem
to find a woman who knows the campus well and who wants to do the job."
The women will have to do shiftwork
and patrol the campus alone at night,
just as their male counterparts do.
Supervisor of the patrol Mr. W.C
Ploeg said that the two women's experience as night workers on campus
was an important consideration in hiring. "They've had years of experience
being on the campus all hours of the
night, walking between the buildings
and being in buildings alone. If that
doesn't worry them, then nothing
about the patrol work should worry
them," he said.
"It's certainly different from the
work I was doing on campus before. I
have to use my brains more in this job,
be quick and observe things," Ms.
Doedyns said.
"And I'd like it to be advertised that
I've been hired. Maybe when they see
that, more women will come forward
to do this job."
UBC's trusty patrol will help those lost, in trouble
Lose a child? A wallet? A dog? Lock
your keys in your car? Got a dead battery? Need help finding your way
around? Leave your ring in a
washroom on campus?
Call the traffic office (228-4721).
They're open 24 hours a day, seven
days a week, and for the SO people
who patrol the campus in general, and
the 11 who patrol the UBC Museum of
Anthropology, sorting oi t minor and
even major emergencies is all part of a
day's work.
They will find people, pets and
possessions that are lost, track down
people in emergencies, render first aid
and take sick people to hospital. Dave
Hannah, superintendent of Traffic
and Security, said they get numerous
calls from people who have left their
lights on and found their batteries run
down, and from people who have
locked themselves out of their cars.
They also get requests to retrieve
possessions like wallets and jewellery
that people have left behind. Once
they had a call from a campus resident
Nine Saturday talks set
The Vancouver Institute will open
its spring series of Saturday-night lectures at UBC on Feb. 3 with a talk on
the crisis of Canadian federation by
Prof. Alan Cairns, head of the
Department of Political Science.
The institute's spring series of nine
lectures will continue until March 31
and will feature talks on British
authors George Bernard Shaw and
Virginia Woolf, freedom of the press,
the psychology of perception and
thought and the problems facing
psychiatrists who give evidence in
court cases.
Gaitanakis
Phillips
The gremlins got loose at the print
shop that prepared the Jan. 17 edition of UBC Reports for the press,
resulting in a picture switch on the
front page which saw Dr. Anthony
Phillips, of psychology, identified as
John Gaitanakis, of architecture,
and vice versa. The many phone
calls pointing out the error left no
doubt in the minds of the editors
that UBC Reports is thoroughly and
minutely read. Fuller treatment of
the projects of both faculty members
will appear in upcoming editions.
Admission to Vancouver Institute
lectures, which are held in Lecture
Hall 2 of the Woodward Building, is
free. A brochure listing the speakers
and titles in the spring series is
available from Information Services,
228-3131.
Among the upcoming speakers are
forensic psychiatrist Dr. Ian Malcolm
of Toronto, who speaks on "The Use
and Abuse of Psychiatrists in Courts"
on Feb. 10; Prof. Dan H. Laurence,
literary and dramatic advisor to the
estate of George Bernard Shaw, who
speaks on "The Shavian View of Life"
on March 3; Lord Lloyd of Hamp-
stead, who heads the law department
at the University of London, speaking
on "Freedom of the Press" on March
10; and British author and publisher
Nigel Nicholson, who will present a
personal portrait of Virginia Woolf,
whose papers he is editing for publication.
Arts grads named
Three 1978 Arts graduates from
UBC are participating in the fourth
B.C. Legislative Internship Program,
designed to give recent graduates of
B.C.'s three public universities exposure to provincial government administrative and legislative processes.
The three UBC graduates who
began their stint as interns in Victoria
on Jan. 4 are: Jock A. Finlayson, who
holds a B.A. in political science;
James Redford, who received his
bachelor's degree in 1975 and his
master's degree in 1978, both in
history; and John Tyhurst, who holds
a B.A. in economics.
who had forgotten to turn his stove off
— they did it for him.
Mr. Hannah said they also handle
emergency calls for people on campus
and often spend hours locating them.
All the patrolpersons are qualified
first aid attendants, and will assist in
accidents or illness and even take
minor cases to hospital. (There is an
ambulance at the fire hall for
emergency cases.)
"People are phoning all the time for
assistance," he said. "We're here to
provide a service, and we will do
everything we can to help."
Help, particularly during the first
week of classes, often takes the form of
directing newcomers to buildings and
parking areas and sorting out the confusion that inevitably occurs when
several thousand people and vehicles
hit the campus at the same time in the
morning.
Despite their emphasis on service,
the traffic and security people tend to
be most commonly associated with the
enforcement of traffic regulations.
Although enforcement is an essential
Dave Hannah
part of their job — last year they
issued about 24,000 tickets — Mr.
Hannah said he wished people were
more aware of the range of helpful
services they offer.
When it comes to enforcement, he .
said: "Our concern is to keep the inner
campus a pleasant and enjoyable
place for walking. We would rather
issue warnings than tickets, but unfortunately, warnings tend to go
unheeded." He said that most of the
complaints his office gets come from
"people who feel they should be able
to park right next to their buildings,
and people who feel they should have
vehicle access to wherever they want to
g°-
"We like to take a common-sense
approach to parking offences, but
with so many cars around, parking is
at a premium and we have to be strict
about enforcement."
Last fall, some 12,700 vehicles were
registered to park on campus. For
these vehicles, and those of approximately 500 visitors to the campus
each day, there are about 8,300 parking spaces.
Ordinarily, parking is not too much
of a problem since there are people
coming and going all the time. "But
during the first month of classes, it is a
real problem," said Mr. Hannah. He
said a disproportionate number of
people drive out to the campus in the
morning, every day, and stay all day.
"Once students get their classes
organized, and newcomers begin to
find their way around, it starts to improve. You also get people setting up
car pools, and some people dropping
out, so the problem is further
alleviated." He added, however, that
Tuesdays and Wednesdays tend to be
bad days for campus traffic year-
round, since most people prefer to
schedule their classes in the middle of
the week.
In the fall of 1978, traffic problems
associated with the beginning of term
were compounded by work designed
to upgrade campus roadways. All of
Wesbrook Mall and part of the East
Mall have been widened to four lanes
to provide improved access to student
parking lots and lots adjacent to
UBC's expanding Health Sciences
Centre Hospital, where an acute-care
unit is under construction. UBCalendar
