of women
scientists
Two research associates in UBC's
Department of Botany are co-ordinating a
project this summer aimed at promoting
better communication among women
scientists in the province.
Dr. Mary Jo Duncan, with the help of
Dr. Edith Camm, is editing a registry of
names, professional addresses and areas of
expertise of women scientists in B.C. and
the Yukon.
The registry is being produced by an
organization called SCWIST, the Society
for Canadian Women in Science and
Technology. The society, formed last year
by a group of women scientists in the
Vancouver area, is geared to building and
maintaining support groups for women
scientists in Canada, providing a forum for
the exchange of ideas and information,
encouraging research on problems common
to women in scientific careers and
motivating women to enter the fields of
science, technology and engineering.
"We think the registry will be helpful in
a number of ways," says Dr. Duncan. "It
will provide the names of women able and
willing to serve on peer review boards,
search committees and advisory councils.
Teachers and counsellors will be able to
use it to locate role models to speak to girls
interested in entering scientific fields, and
it will enable women to be included in a
network of information and support."
Drs. Duncan and Camm have spent the
summer locating women scientists in
universities and colleges, industry,
government labs and schools. They are
now in the process of mailing them a
questionnaire which will provide material
for the registry.
"In addition to the basic information we
need for the registry such as name,
employer, degree and type of work, we are
including a second section that asks for
more detailed information," says Dr.
Duncan. "This data will be entered into a
computer, without identifying the women,
to be used by researchers requiring
statistics on women in science."
The project is being funded by grants
from the federal Secretary of State and the
women's office of the B.C. Ministry of
Labor. "We've also had a lot of support
from the Office of the Dean of Science,"
Dr. Duncan says. "We've been given office
space and equipment for the summer
which has been very helpful."
The registry is expected to be completed
this fall, and will be distributed to
administrators in industry, government and
education as well as to interested people in
the registry.
"We're hoping that the registry will
prompt women in areas outside Vancouver
to start up their own regional chapters of
SCWIST," says Dr. Duncan.
The UBC campus will be the setting for
a project planned by SCWIST members
again next summer. A three-day national
conference on Canadian Women in Science
and Technology is scheduled for May,
1983. The conference will feature
workshops and lectures given by speakers
from across the country.
Mignon Smienk, a library assistant in UBC's Special Collections Division, takes
a look at a rare set of volumes written by Captain George Vancouver in 1795.
The set, which has been valued at $33,500, was recently donated to UBC.
Library acquires rare volumes
by Captain George Vancouver
The Special Collections Division of
UBC's library is the new home of a rare set
of volumes written by Captain George
Vancouver after his 1790-95 voyage along
the coast of British Columbia.
The set, valued at $33,500, was donated
by Dr. John Steelquist of California.
Captain Vancouver began writing an
account of his explorations in 1795 and the
four volumes were in the final proof stage
when he died in 1798. His brother, John,
saw the work through its publication.
Eight special proof copies were
produced, for King George III, the British
Admiralty and Vancouver's family, and it
is one of these eight sets that has been
given to UBC.
The copy from Dr. Steelquist's collection
is one of only four complete sets in
existence. The special edition differs from
others produced in that the steel
engravings were not included with the
written text, but were printed on large
folio sheets and bound in the atlas volume
with the charts.
The Special Collections Division has an
extensive collection of accounts of
Vancouver's voyages in several languages.
UBC rated
best in
accounting
The University of British Columbia is the
best school in Canada for accounting,
according to accounting professors across
the country.
McMaster University and the University
of Alberta are the closest challengers to
UBC, but the margin is wide.
The relative standing of the accounting
divisions or departments of Canada's
universities has been tabulated by a special
committee of the Institute of Chartered
Accountants of Alberta, as part of an
assessment of chartered account education
in that province.
The committee first asked accounting
professors in 20 universities with recognized
accounting programs to rate the
institutions as to quality of faculty and
course offerings.
UBC received 445 out of a maximum of
510 voting points, 120 more than second-
place McMaster and 147 more than
Alberta. Saskatchewan, York, Queen's,
McGill, Manitoba, Toronto and Western
Ontario filled out the top 10. Simon Fraser
University was rated 14th, with 51 points.
(The University of Victoria does not offer
accounting.)
A second poll asked for the professors'
impressions of the quality of students
graduating in accounting from the same 20
universities.
Again, UBC came out on top, with an
average score of 5.5 from a possible
maximum of 7. Queen's and Alberta were
equal second at 4.9, with McMaster and
Saskatchewan next at 4.8. Western,
McGill, York, Manitoba and Toronto
completed the top 10, with SFU again
placing 14th.
(See tables on Page 2)
Prof. George Gorelik is chairman of
UBC's division of accounting and
management information systems, part of
the Faculty of Commerce and Business
Administration.
With about 25 per cent of the UBC
commerce faculty, the accounting division
has about 35 per cent of the
undergraduate students, graduating 120 a
year. There are about 10 students each
year at the master's level, and usually one
or two working toward doctorates in
accounting.
Dean Peter Lusztig said he was pleased
but not really surprised by the Alberta
findings. He said UBC's commerce faculty
as a whole has long been recognized as the
best in Canada.
"But it's nice to have an out-of-province
professional body make this assessment," he
said.
Coping with Campus' helps returning women
Returning to c,ampus life after being out
of the educational system for a few years
can be a bit overwhelming at first. But
help is on the way.
The Women Students' Office is offering
a program called "Coping with Campus" to
help women who are planning to enter
UBC after being away from school for five
years or longer.
The program includes information
sessions on resources and support services
at UBC, campus orientation and library
tours, opportunities to meet with current
and prospective students, and suggestions
for working more effectively through time
management and establishment of goals
and priorities.
The program will be offered twice in
August. The first session will be held from
5 to 10 p.m. on Aug. 24, and the second
will take place from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
on Aug. 26.
The program is free but pre-registration
is necessary. You can sign up at the
Women Students' Office, located in Room
223 of Brock Hall, or give them a call at
228-2415. UBC Reports August 4, 1982
Seven departments of UBC's Faculty of Medicine moved in June into new
quarters in phase one of the Laurel Street Project, a $68 million project which is
part of a massive redevelopment of the Vancouver General Hospital complex.
Shown inspecting the pathology museum in the new building are dean of
medicine William Webber, left, and pathology department head Dr. David
Hardwick.

the 10th annual conference of the National
Council for Therapy and Rehabilitation
through Horticulture, being held in the
UBC Conference Centre (Walter Gage
Residence) Aug. 16 through 19.
It is the first meeting to be held outside
the United States since the council's
formation. Between 150 and 200 delegates
are expected, including some from Britain
and South Africa.
The issues of horticultural therapy and
its many varied applications will be
addressed in detail at the conference by
some of the world's foremost practitioners.
Program elements are included for
participants representing major disability
groups, prison systems, hospitals, schools,
long-term care facilities, social housing,
botanical gardens and arboreta, parks and
community gardens.
Keynote speaker will be Walter Dinsdale.
member of Parliament for Brandon-Souris,
and vice-chairman of the 1980-81 Special

Mr. Dinsdale has been a five-time
delegate to the United Nations General
Assembly, and in 1959 he co-chaired the
Political Committee of the Atlantic
Congress with Dr. Henry Kissinger. In spite
of his many interests and activities, Mr.
Dinsdale's dedication to promoting the
cause of the handicapped has remained an
important focus of his energies, and he
recently received a United Nations award
in recognition of his work for the disabled.
The conference program also includes a
free public lecture by Dr. Diane Relf, co-
founder and past-president of the NCTRH.

School starts early for football Thunderbirds
The days are still hot (theoretically) and
the beaches still crowded with sun seekers
(theoretically), but to seasoned campus
observers, fall school days cannot be too
far off because things are happening over
at Thunderbird Stadium. Football season is
beginning.
The Thunderbirds football team is busily
preparing for another banner year of UBC
gridiron. Head coach Frank Smith's work
and effort during the past year —
reviewing game films, recruiting players
and setting up playbooks — has set the
stage for another training camp, his ninth
at UBC.
"Camp begins in the middle of August
but a lot of our time has already been
spent preparing for it over the winter and
spring months. Last December, Bob
(defensive coordinator Bob Laycoe) and I
began planning for this season immediately
after the Shrum Bowl and we haven't
stopped working since," commented Smith
in an interview earlier this week.
Indeed, coaches generally put a great
deal of emphasis on their annual training
camps as they provide the opportunity to
teach new football skills to the players as
well as prepare for the coming season.
Coach Smith is no exception to this rule
and he will be placing great importance on
the value of this training camp for the long
season ahead.
Camp this year sees arduous, two-a-day
workouts begin on Friday, Aug. 13, at
Thunderbird Stadium and continue for
two weeks until Aug. 27 when the 'Birds
travel to Calgary to face the University of
Calgary Dinosaurs.
The Thunderbirds, in fact, will have
already played three games by the time
winter session classes start. Their first home
game will be at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 3,
at Thunderbird Stadium, with University
of Manitoba Bisons providing the
Dwayne Derban
Trent Edwards
Scott Mehlenbacher
Top prep players get Gnup awards
Dwayne Derban and Trent Edwards, two
17-year-olds from Kamloops, and 18-year-
old Scott Mehlenbacher of Richmond are
winners of the prestigious $1,250 Frank
Gnup Memorial Awards for 1982.
All three will enroll at UBC this fall and
will try out for the UBC football team,
which was coached by Frank Gnup for
many years.
Derban, Edwards and Mehlenbacher
were outstanding prep football players last
season. They also fulfill admirably the
Frank Gnup criteria of academic
achievement, leadership qualities and
athletic ability.
Derban is a defensive end or nose guard
Peter Mullins, longtime UBC
basketball coach who leaves in
October for sabbatical in Australia,
was the special guest July 15 at the
banquet following the 6th annual
Frank Gnup memorial golf
tournament. More than 200 took part,
with all proceeds going to the Gnup
memorial award fund.
and he played last year for the provincial
champion Kamloops Red Devils, winners of
the Gnup Cup. He was voted most
improved player in the league. Derban is
an "A" student and plans to study
engineering at UBC. He also wrestles and
throws the discus.
Teammate Edwards, a linebacker or
fullback, was captain of the Red Devils last
season. He is a B-minus student and will
enter the Faculty of Arts, with a possible
move later to commerce. Edwards also
wrestles, and he was the 1981 high school
champion in the 88 kg. class.
Mehlenbacher is a running back or
defensive back and was voted the most
valuable player in the Premier League last
year. He played for the Steveston Packers,
Vancouver and District finalists.
Mehlenbacher, a B-minus student, also is
looking at Arts with a possible move to
commerce. He is a sprinter, and was on his
school's 4 X  100 relay team which
equalled the B.C. record.
Education Information Centre
completes busy first year
The Education Information Centre in
downtown Vancouver at 549 Howe St., has
just completed its first year of operation —
a year in which close to 5,000 people either
dropped in or telephoned the centre for
information about education opportunities.
Nine member institutions, including
UBC, and the Ministry of Education cooperate to disseminate information
concerning all program and course
offerings in the Lower Mainland.
Co-ordinator of the centre is Debra
Sawle, who says that in addition to specific
queries from people interested in
furthering their education, there is a steady
stream of people just dropping in to browse
and pick up brochures, pamphlets and
calendars displayed for public use.
The centre's board of management is
chaired by Vince Battistelli, associate
director of UBC's Centre for Continuing
Education.
Other institutions represented are Simon
Fraser University, Open Learning Institute,
B.C. Institute of Technology, Capilano
College, Douglas College, Pacific
Vocational Institute, Vancouver
Community College, and the Greater
Vancouver School District.
The Education Information Centre, only
centre of its kind in Canada, provides an
opportunity for the public to receive
unbiased educational information at one
central location.
Centre gets
two awards
Two programming awards were received
by the UBC Centre for Continuing
Education from the Canadian Association
for University Continuing Education at its
annual meeting held in Vancouver.
The Vancouver Women's Network,
founded in 1979 by Eileen Hendry while
she was director of Women in Management
and Career Development programs, was
named winner in the general non-credit
category.
Ms. Hendry, who was appointed March
31 to the newly established position of vice-
president (Western) of the Canadian
Advisory Council on the Status of Women,
shared the award with Janet Fraser, her
successor as director of Women in
Management and Vancouver Women's
Network.
The centre's Continuing Education
Programmer's Manual prepared by Sandy
McGechaen, director of the Instructor's
Diploma Program, and editorial assistant
Brishkai Lund, won the professional
development programming award.
opposition. They play Alberta in
Edmonton Sept. 11.
The 'Birds have their usual schedule of
eight conference games in the Western
Intercollegiate Football League (WIFL)
which includes a home-and-home series
with league favorite and arch rival Alberta
Golden Bears. Non-conference games will
include a late September trip to Cheney,
Washington, for a Saturday afternoon
matchup against NCAA Division II
powerhouse Eastern Washington University
Eagles and, of course, the annual Shrum
Bowl clash with the Simon Fraser
University Clansmen.
Football pundits across Canada think the
Thunderbirds will do quite well this
coming season and many predict a placing
in the nation's top ten when the CIAU preseason ratings are released in mid-August.
But Smith is not so optimistic and doubts
the value of such polls.
"I really don't follow the top ten ratings
too closely because they have a tendency to
make the team overconfident. We'll no
doubt be competitive this year but I think
that once again the team to beat in the
WIFL will be Alberta. They have one of
the strongest university football programs
in Canada because they have such a strong
feeder system," Smith said.
One source of Alberta's and Calgary's
strength in recent years has been the strong
provincial high school football program in
Alberta. Alberta has 146 high schools
fielding football as compared to just 22 in
British Columbia. Obviously there will be a
smaller pool of British Columbia talent
from which UBC (and SFU to a lesser
extent) can draw players from and build a
strong program on.
Here's a quick overview of how the 1982
UBC team stacks up at the various
positions.
On offence, Coach Smith will have
plenty of depth at running back with All-
Canadian Glenn Steele, Peter Leclaire
(who scored four touchdowns against SFU
in the Shrum Bowl last year) and Pat
Cantner returning to line up this year.
Pushing them hard will be freshman Scott
Mehlenbacher from Steveston High School
(rated the top high school back last fall)
and Kent Bowling and Tom Mulheme.
The key position of quarterback is up for
grabs as returnees Jay Gard and Sheldon
Petri compete for the starting spot. The
'Birds also appear solid at both inside and
outside receiver. Rob Ros could be one of
the best tight ends in the country while Stu
Noble should be fully recovered from the
sudden attack of appendicitis which put
him out of action last fall.
WIFL all-stars George Piva and Pieter
Vanden Bos lead a veteran offensive line
that includes Jerry Dobrovolny, Don
Adamic and Mark Napiorkowski.
Newcomer Peter Jeffery will help them
open holes for the potent Thunderbird
backfield.
On defence, the team should be as
stingy as last year when they held the
opposition to an average of 11 points per
game. Returning will be All-Canadians
Mike Emery at linebacker and Jason Riley
at end plus WIFL all-stars Bernie Glier,
Dave Singh and Mark Beecroft in the
backfield.
Joining them will be backs Laurent
Deslaurier, second-year man Bruce Barnett
and veteran Brian Branting while Emery
will be joined at linebacker by K.C. Steele,
Greg Kitchen, Steve Harrison and Jack
Beestra.
On the special teams, Emery is expected
to do the punting (he averaged 34 yards
per kick last season), Ken Munro will do
the place kicking while Glier and Singh
(both of whom were drafted by the B.C.
Lions this year) will run back kickoffs and
punts. UBC Reports August 4, 1982

'Entertaining Mr. Sloane' leads off theatre season
Black comedy, Greek tragedy, Victorian
melodrama and comedy-in-the-making
these are the ingredients that form the
basis of the four plays to be presented by
UBC's Department of Theatre at the
Frederic Wood Theatre in 1982-83.
Leading off the season Sept. 22 to Oct. 2
will be the Joe Orton play Entertaining Mr.
Sloane, described as a "dirty highbrow
play" when it was produced in 1964,
written by a man who has been dubbed
"the Oscar Wilde of the Welfare State
gentility." Stanley Weese will direct.
The Trojan Women, Euripedes' classic
tragedy about the fate of the women of
Troy after the Greek conquest, will be
staged Nov. 17 to 27. Klaus Strassmann
will direct the play, described as "a
passionate protest against the martial spirit
which ultimately annihilates victor and
conquered alike."
Theatre department head Dr. John
Brockington will direct Luigi Pirandello's
Six Characters in Search of an Author, the
theatre's third production from Jan. 12 to
22. Pirandello has had an enormous
influence on contemporary drama and this
work has been described as "one of the
most theatrically effective and important
play* of the 20th century."
The final play of the Freddy Wood
season is The Ticket-of-Leave Man, by
Tom Taylor, which will be staged March 2
to 12 under the direction of Arnie Zaslove.
One of the most popular plays of the 19th
century, the work deals with a socially
important theme - the dilemma of a
discharged prisoner.
Season's tickets for the 1982-83 Freddy
Wood season are now available. Call
228-2678 for more information.
