President cracks down, padlocks EUS office
The Engineering Undergraduate
Society has been locked out of its
headquarters on the orders of
President Douglas Kenny because of
the contents of the "Red Rag," the
annual engineers' newspaper which
makes its appearance during
Engineering Week.
The EUS headquarters in the so-
called "Cheez factory," an old wooden
building in the midst of the Applied
Science complex on the Main Mall,
was padlocked over the weekend.
The building, once used by the
Faculty of Agricultural Sciences to
manufacture cheese, will remain
closed indefinitely, President Kenny
President Kenny said he concurred
with the view expressed by applied
science Dean Martin Wedepohl in a
Feb. 25 public letter to all UBC
engineering students that the 1982
edition of the Red Rag was sexist,
racist and approves of and advocates
cruel violence.
The president said his decision to
close the EUS headquarters was "an
accumulation of many things," and
was not solely based on the
appearance of the 1982 Red Rag.
He said he had taken into account a
statement by the EUS executive in
Among the 19 Social Credit MLAs who visited the UBC campus Feb. 24 was attorney-general Allan Williams, shown in
animated conversation at luncheon in Place Vanier Residence, kickoff event in an afternoon of activities that included a
series of informational seminars held in the new Asian Centre, a meeting with President Douglas Kenny and an Alumni
Association-sponsored reception at Cecil Green Park. Mr.  Williams was one of five cabinet members in the visiting group.
One system, not 3 universities: Gibson
"We are looking at the whole thing
as a system, not as three universities."
The words are those of Dr. Bill
Gibson, chairman of the Universities
Council of British Columbia. He was
talking about the restraint program
announced Feb. 18>by Premier
Dr. Gibson was emphatic that an
increase of 12 per cent in the
provincial government operating grant
for the three provincial universities is
the most that can be expected.
"And it might be only 10 per cent,
with some exceptions," he said.
The UCBC chairman said his office
has been working with representatives
from UBC, Simon Fraser and the
University of Victoria on a financing
formula for the universities, a method
by which the provincial allocation
should be divided among the three
The formula used for the past three
years has expired, and Dr. Gibson said
modifications now being negotiated
will be applied this year.
He said funding will not be so
rigidly tied to enrolment increases,
and each university will be paid for
work done.
"We don't have three groups of
taxpayers, we have one group," said
Dr. Gibson. "We are looking at the
whole thing as a system, not as three
universities, and there will be no
sanctioning of duplication or

March, 1980, which had outlined the
society's future activities, including
redirection of publication efforts
toward more "professional
publications," including the re-
establishment of the "UBC Engineer."
The same statement said the Lady
Godiva ride would not in future take
place "in its present form."
The ride continued in 1981 and
1982 without any substantial change in
A 24-member committee established
by the Board of Governors in
December to advise on candidates to
succeed Dr. Douglas T. Kenny as
president of the University has now
been fully constituted.
The committee is empowered to
adopt criteria to guide it in the
selection of presidential candidates
and to recommend a short list of
candidates to the staff committee of
the Board. The staff committee, in
turn, will make its recommendations
to the full Board, which has
responsibility for the appointment of
the president under the University Act.
When Dr. Kenny steps down as
UBC's seventh president on June 30,
1983, he will have completed 39 years
of association with UBC as student,
teacher, researcher and administrator.
He plans to return to the department

take up again his career as a teacher
and researcher.

Kane decision
President Kenny announced
Tuesday that, in accordance with the
terms of the award of the Hearing
Committee established under the
Agreement on Conditions of
Appointment for Faculty and
composed of two faculty members
from the University of British
Columbia and one from the University
of Alberta, he has suspended Dr.
Julius Kane without salary and benefits
for a period of eighteen months
starting on March-1, 1982, and ending
on August 31, 1983.
President Kenny stated that further
comments on this matter would not be
made until the University has reviewed
the award. ^^^^^^^^^TW^HPE^WItoBPB!^^?^^^^
UBC residence rates increased
UBC's Board of Governors has
approved increases ranging from 15 to
20 per cent in rental and room-and-
board rates for students living in single
and family housing on the campus.
The new rates reflect increased
operating costs resulting from increases
in the price of food and higher labor
The increases were discussed and
approved by student associations in
each of the residence complexes.
Room rates also include residence
association lees of $5, levied for the
support of activities in each of the
single-student residence complexes.
Effective May 1, rates in the Walter
Gage Residence, where room only is
provided, will increase by 16 per cent
for term fees of $1,568.91 in high-rise
units and $1,655.67 for shared suites
in adjacent low-rise units.
In the Totem Park and Place
Vanier units, where room and board is
provided, daily meal rates will increase
by 15.3 per cent from $5.20 to $6 and
room rates will increase by 16 per
The increases will result in room-
and-board rates in Totem Park
ranging from $2,491.16 per person for
a double room to $3,018.95 for a
senior single room in the Dene and
Nootka Houses in the same complex.

University community and has
essentially the same structure as the
advisory-committees which
recommended the appointments of the
late Dr. Walter Gage as president in
1969 and that of Dr. Kenny in 1974.
The Board agreed to a suggested
change in the committee structure as
the result of a Senate recommendation
that the current president of the UBC
Faculty Association, Charles Culling,
be added to the committee.
Following are the committee's
membership categories and the names
of those elected or appointed.
Committee chairman — Hon. J.V.
Clyne, UBCs chancellor.
Four members of the Board
appointed by the chairman — Allan
R. Crawford, Alan F. Pierce, Gerald
H.D. Hobbs and Joy McCusker.
Three members elected by the
University Senate — William M.
Keenlyside, a senator elected by
Convocation; Prof. G.E. Scudder,
head of the Department of Zoology;
and Prof. Peter Suedfeld, head of the
Department of Psychology.
Four members of faculty, elected by
the Joint Faculties — Dr. A. Jean
Elder of the Department of History,
Prof. Penny Gouldstone of the Faculty

E. Riedel, Pharmaceutical Sciences;
and Robert M. Will, Arts.
Four students, one a member of the
AMS executive — Cliff Stewart, AMS
vice-president. Faculty of Applied
Science; two undergraduates chosen by
the Students' Council — Francis Janes,
Faculty of Applied Science; and Linda
Wallbaum, Faculty of Arts; one
graduate student chosen by the
Graduate Student Association —
Yvonne Hebert, a graduate student in
Three members of the Alumni
Association — Grant Burnyeat, Dr.
Harold Halvorson and Patricia Fulton.
One member of the Non-Academic
Administration appointed by the
chairman of the Board — William
White, UBC vice-president and
The current head of the UBC
Faculty Association, who shall
continue to serve during the life of the
advisory committee — Charles Culling
of the Department of Pathology.
At the time the committee structure
was announced, Board chairman Dr.
Leslie Peterson, Q.C., said that while
the criteria for the selection of a new
president would be a matter for the
committee to consider, the Board
wished to appoint a Canadian who is
highly regarded in his or her own
academic discipline.
Rates in Place Vanier will range
from $2,522.49 per person in a double
room to $2,970.75 for a senior single
Monthly rents in Acadia Camp,
made up of converted army huts, will
increase 20 per cent, effective Sept. 1.
Rents in the camp under the new rates
will vary from a low of $82 per month
to $344.
Monthly rates in Acadia Park will
increase Sept. 1 by 16 per cent for 100
apartments in a high-rise unit and by
15 per cent in 175 townhouses and 21
units on President's Row. New faculty
members renting accommodation in
Acadia Park will pay a $300
surcharge, effective Sept. 1.
UBC housing is operated as an
ancillary enterprise with rents paying
for operating costs. Some single-
student accommodation is used to
house conference delegates in the offseason, with profits subsidizing student
rental rates.
Blue ribbon
for UBC at
garden show
The UBC Botanical Garden exhibit
at the Vancouver Home and Garden
Show has been awarded a blue ribbon
as the best display in the large exhibit
The exhibit was designed by
horticulturist Margaret Walline. The
centrepiece is a glass greenhouse,
surrounded by four cedar shade
houses. Other components are a small
raised vegetable garden, a herb garden
and a staggering variety of bulbs,
flowering shrubs, vegetables and house

garden staff members are also giving
public talks during the show, which

offerings that aren't first class."
The UCBC head recalled the
expression 'We shall have less money,
so we must think harder' and said that
all three universities "have reached a
real day of reckoning."
Dr. Gibson said the total grant to
the Universities Council for
distribution to the universities should
be known by mid-April, although no
firm date has been set yet for the
opening of the spring session of the
B.C. legislature.
UBC's president, Dr. Douglas
Kenny, expressed similar views earlier
in February, during a meeting with
senior editorial staff of the Vancouver
He said that the Universities Council
had failed to rationalize the delivery of
educational programs, and called for
talks among the three universities,
UCBC and the provincial government.
Meanwhile, Dr. Kenny agreed with
Dr. Gibson that 12 per cent is the
"absolute maximum" that UBC can
expect in the way of an operating
grant increase this year.
Dr. Kenny said UBC must have an
interim budget in place by the
beginning of the fiscal year, April 1,
even though the amount of the
operating grant won't be known by
"Everything would be much simpler,
and money could be spent more
wisely, if the provincial government
would get together with the
universities and agree to a set of
publicly accepted objectives for the
university system and a level of
government funding that may be
expected for the attainment of that
objective," he said.
Language development linked to criminal behavior
Impulsive behavior, inability to
foresee the outcome of actions, and
difficulty in planning and problem
solving are common behavior patterns
for people with cognitive disorders
related to poor language development.
Prof. Peggy Koopman of UBC's
education faculty believes that these
behaviors may be the root, in some
instances, of criminal acts. She is
involved in a research project which
explores the relationship between
language development and criminal
"I'm carrying out a study with 300
prisoners in penitentiaries across
Canada to locate people who exhibit a
lack of language development
originating from specific process
disorders," says Prof. Koopman.
"Once these individuals have been
identified, rehabilitation programs
based on an educational model can be
set up to correct the disorders."
According to Prof. Koopman,
people with a low level of language
development have difficulty
comprehending complex throughts.
"They don't see relationships between
events in a sequence," she says.
"Therefore they tend not to inhibit
their behavior because they don't
foresee what their actions will lead to."
Prof. Koopman will be selecting
prisoners for her research by talking
with prison wardens, psychologists,
educational personnel and the
prisoners themselves. She is looking for
individuals whose learning
achievements either academically or
on-the-job have not reached an
expected level.
Once she has chosen the men and
women for her study, Prof. Koopman
will administer tests to measure their
language structure in three situations:
-during spontaneous verbal interaction,
during an elicited response — when
the individual is asked to tell a story
about a picture, and in a written
paragraph. Tests that measure
cognitive ability (i.e. analytic thinking
and problem solving) will also be
given. The results will demonstrate the
nature and extent of the relationship
between the two sets of measures.
"The prisoners in the pilot studies
we've done have been very cooperative," says Prof. Koopman.
"They'ie interested in learning about
themselves, especially if they think
something is wrong that can be
corrected. After we analyze each
person's test results we speak to them
individually for their own
When all the data from the study
have been analyzed, the results will be
used to support the recommendation
to develop a rehabilitation program.
"It is possible to alter cognitive
functions in a dramatic and profound
way in adults," explains Prof.
Koopman. "You can increase language
competency if you take into account
the origin of the problem. By
correcting the disorder that's causing
poor language development, you
eventually eliminate the behavior
disorders that result from a lack of
language competency.
"The study doesn't apply to
everyone, of course, but there is a
particular group of prisoners who we
feel we can help through this type of
educational rehabilitation."
Prof. Koopman is one of several
researchers in various departments in
the Faculty of Education who aire
carrying out studies that will serve as a
basis for a new Program of Studies
and Training in Corrections Education
being established within the faculty.
The studies are being funded by a
grant by the Canadian Donner
Foundation and by the Solicitor
General's Office.
The program will serve as a centre
for research in prison education and
will train educators to work in
correctional institutions. OPEN HOUSE AT UBCl
