 UBC REPORTS - CAMPUS EDITION/
PRESIDENT
HARE RESIGNS
k
Dr. Walter Koerner, chairman of the Board
• of   Governors   of   The   University   of   B.C.,
announced Saturday, Jan. 11, the resignation
of Dr.   F. Kenneth Hare as president of the
University.
Dr. Hare said in his letter of resignation
that he had found the job of president
impossible for a man of his temperament.
Dr. Hare is now in England. His resignation
is effective January 31, 1969.
Dr. Koerner, in announcing Dr. Hare's
resignation, said the Board of Governors had
accepted it with great reluctance and regret.
He said he and his fellow Board members
had the highest respect for Dr. Hare, for his
intelligence and his imaginative approach to
University problems. He said Dr. Hare, with
his broad liberal view of education, had
achieved easy rapport with the student body,
the faculty and administration, with alumni
and with the Board of Governors, and had
made a promising start in overcoming some of
the University's problems.
□ an
But he said the presidency of any major
university is a highly demanding and complex
job, as evidenced by the premature resignation of dozens of Canadian and American
university heads in the last two years. He said
the many conflicting pressures of the
presidency had simply proved to be more
than Dr. Hare had anticipated.
Dr. Hare, a geographer and meteorologist
of international stature, plans to return to
teaching and research at another university.
Dean Walter Gage has been named acting
president of UBC until a permanent successor
to Dr. Hare can be found. Dr. Koerner said a
selection committee will be set up to seek a
new- president, and will be widely representative of the University community.
The committee will undertake the difficult
search for candidates with the rare combination of academic and administrative qualifications necessary for the presidency.
In his letter of resignation, Dr. Hare
explained to the Board his reasons for
relinquishing the position:
"The presidency," he said, "is rendered
impossible for a man of my temperament, not
by things inside the University but by the
external environment. The problem is that I
see the difficulties of the University with
stark clarity, and believe them to demand
immediate solution; yet there are no resources
available to the president even to mitigate
them, let alone solve them. This is in spite of
the outstandingly loyal support of the
Governors, to whom I am deeply grateful.
The Faculty too has backed me up,
notwithstanding my inability to help them.
□ □ □
"I must put in a good word for the student
body. I have identified with their cause
because I am a teacher, and they have
responded with friendly enthusiasm. I have
had a few brushes with the so-called radicals,
but even they at close hand have not been
unfriendly.
"I am not leaving you with a sinking ship.
The administration is the best in the country,
thanks to the fine work of the three deputy
presidents, Walter Gage, W.M. Armstrong and
W. White. Walter has had to cope with the
duties of the presidency before, and will
undoubtedly cope better than I could; few
men deserve better of his colleagues."
In a separate letter to Dean Gage, Dr. Hare
said he had found his position as president
"more than uncomfortable."
"To succeed in the job," he said, "a man
must not merely have a tough constitution
and a thick skin; he must also be able to call
on the resources needed to meet the
University's inescapable responsibilities, and
he must be able to give his colleagues some
assurance that there is light at the end of the
tunnel.
"Lacking these things, I ran myself into the
ground with anxiety and fatigue."
He said he had thought it best to resign
before he committed the University to
policies he might not be able to carry out. He
added: "My reasoning was personal and in no
way reflected pressure from any quarter other
than my own conscience."
DR. F. KENNETH HARE
Dr. Hare expressed his gratitude for their
support to the Board, to the three deputy
presidents, to Dr. William Webber, president
of the UBC Faculty Association, and to David
Zirnhelt, president of the Alma Mater
Society.
Dr. Hare took office May 31, 1968,
succeeding Dr. John B. Macdonald who
resigned as president of UBC June 30, 1967.
Dr. Hare came to UBC from London,
England, where he was Master of Birkbeck
College of the University of London. He had
previously been on the faculty of McGill
University, Montreal, for 19 years and from
1962—64 was dean of arts and sciences there.
DDD
In 1968 he published a book "On
University Freedom in the Canadian Context." Earlier he had published a widely used
textbook on climatology, "The Restless
Atmosphere."
Dr. Hare is a Fellow of the Royal Society
of Canada and is active in a number of
professional associations. He has headed the
Arctic Institute of North America, the
Canadian Association of Geographers and the
Royal Meteorological Society.
His last official act as president of UBC will
be to attend the installation of Dr. A.W.R.
Carrothers as president of the University of
Calgary on January 30. TO PERRY COMMITTEE
Four Groups Send Briefs
Four major UBC groups—the Alumni and Faculty
Associations, the Committee of Deans and the
Senate—have now made submissions to the provincial
government's Advisory Committee on Inter-
University Relations.
The provincial body, established last year by
Education Minister Leslie Peterson, is chaired by
deputy minister of education Dr. G. Neil Perry,
former vice-president and dean of commerce at UBC.
The committee's purpose, Mr. Peterson said when
he announced its formation during the 1968 sitting of
the Legislature, is to ensure that in future there is a
minimum of overlapping of programs and no undue
competition between the three public institutions in
B.C.
The Alumni and Faculty Associations, in their
briefs to the Perry Committee, propose a single
agency to replace the two-tiered system now in
effect.
The Alumni brief specifies an agency made up of
nine to 15 academics and non-academics to
coordinate all post-secondary education in B.C.
Some academics would be included in the new
body, but there would be no direct representation for
individual institutions. Representation would be by
types of institutions instead.
The 10-man single agency proposed by the UBC
Faculty Association provides for two representatives
from each university, three from the public-at-large,
plus a distinguished academic as full-time executive
secretary.
In addition to undertaking specific functions with
respect to universities, the body would undertake
long-range planning on the development of post-
secondary education.
UBC's committee of deans has opted to retain the
two-tiered system of government advisory bodies, and
this viewpoint was endorsed by the Senate.
The Senate, at its Jan. 8 meeting, heard a report
from a presidential advisory committee established by
Dr. F. Kenneth Hare. The committee, chaired by Dr.
Noel Hall of the commerce faculty, prepared no brief
for the Perry Committee and chose to recommend
endorsement of the deans' brief with some
modifications.
The two bodies recommended by the deans are:
1. A Commission on University Finance, made up
of three full-time commissioners with extensive
academic experience, and six part-time members
broadly representative of the public-at-large.
The Commission, regarded by the Deans as the
senior and more important of the two proposed
agencies, would initiate and conduct studies on the
educational needs in public universities, formulate
and recommend plans for the provision and
expansion of public universities, analyse and review
capital and operating budgets, report on any
university matter referred to it by the minister and
maintain close liaison with those concerned with all
other post-secondary educational institutions in B.C.
2. The Council on University Affairs, with a
suggested membership of the president of each
university, one Board member from each university
and one academic member of each university Senate.
The deans' brief sees the Council as a voluntary
organization with its terms of reference and methods
of operation determined by the institutions working
together.
In general, the Council would involve itself in the
planning and coordination of both academic and
financial affairs and would serve as a vehicle for
attempting to solve problems without recourse to the
Commission.
The recommendations made by the deans seek to
overcome one of the major difficulties which has
arisen from the present system of allocating operating
grants among the universities.
This difficulty, as stated in the deans' brief, is that
"members of the Financial Advisory Board drawn
from the individual boards of the universities have
been put in the position of reconsidering estimates
which they have already approved."
The deans' brief also points out that "no effective
technique has been developed to assess the extent and
desirability of duplication among the three universities," which has led to the view "that there is some
waste in the system as a whole . . ."
The report from Dr. Hall's presidential advisory
committee made three recommendations for amending the deans' brief. All were accepted by Senate.
2/UBC Reports/January 13, 1969
"In our view," the Hall committee said, "the
Council on University Affairs and the Commission on
University Finance are agencies operating in an
over-lapping fashion" and "do not represent a
continuation of the traditional separation of
decision-making on academic and financial matters."
To avoid the connotation of "academic" vs.
"financial" the Hall Committee recommended a
change of name for the Commission on University
Finance to the "Commission on Universities."
The Hall Committee also made a firm recommendation for the composition of the Council On
University Affairs (see above), which was only
suggested in the deans' brief.
Finally, the Hall committee asked for a change in
one of the terms of reference for the finance
commission which would provide for the commission
to advise the minister of education on the relation of
the planning and development of other post-
secondary educational institutions to the universities.
A major part of the Senate debate on the Hall
committee report resulted from a statement by Dr.
Cyril Belshaw, head of the anthropology and
sociology department, who made a case for a single,
federated university system for B.C.
Under such a system there would be one president,
one Board of Governors and possibly one Senate for
all B.C. universities. The president and Board would
have the sole authority for submitting estimates to
the government and distributing funds among the
universities.
The briefs submitted to the Perry Commission by
UBC bodies have either rejected the concept of a
single universitv system or have not considered the
problem and attempted to make a case for it.
Dr. Belshaw said he wished to say something about
the idea of the single system because he felt that this
was the direction in which developments would
untimately move.
The advantages of a single system, he said, were:
—provision    of    a    mechanism   for   the   coming
together of academic and financial judgements so the
two are not separate,
—provision of the possibility for the universities to
present a single brief to the government with all the
difficulties ironed out before presentation,
—provision of the possibility for existing, established elements in the university system to nurture
and assist new elements by provision of staff and in
other ways, and
—provision of a ready-made basis for the
rationalization of the distribution of supporting
services   such as the Library.
The main objection to a single, federated system,
he added, was the fear that individual institutions
within the system would lose autonomy.
Acting dean of arts Dr. John Young, who spoke
after Dr. Belshaw, told Senate that he thought one
reason the question of a single system had not been
attacked was that time was short and material had to
be prepared for the Perry Committee quickly.
Those who worked on submissions, he said, felt
that an interim solution had to be found, but this did
not preclude further discussions about university
reform.
The case made by Dr. Belshaw had its effect. It
was pointed out that one paragraph of the Hall
committee report read as though Senate was opposed
to the proposition of a single system and later it was
suggested that the report should not be submitted as
the policy of Senate.
Dean Ian Cowan said it was very easy for the UBC
Senate to contemplate the rationality of a completely
federated system. It is not nearly so easy for UBC's
younger, sister institutions to contemplate it with the
same equanimity, he said.
The newer institutions are still staking out the
boundaries of their activity, he said, and while they
are losing their suspicion of UBC as a university
attempting to dominate the system, they would
prefer the kind of body proposed in the deans' brief.
Senate was still not convinced and a motion that
no submission be sent to the Perry Committee was
voted on and defeated.
Finally, Senate compromised by approving the
recommendations in the Hall committee report with
the deletion of a paragraph which pointed out that all
the briefs reviewed by the committee had rejected the
idea of a single university system.

SCIENCE FACULTY  SAY!
New Campu
UBC's faculty of science has recommended
creation of one or more new, separate campuses
under UBC control, stiffening of academic standards
in the faculty and limitation of enrolment on the
Point Grey campus to 25,000 students. ^^
The recommendations resulted from the repon^^
a six-man faculty of science committee on limitation
of enrolment chaired  by  Dr.   Rodney A.  Restrepo,
associate professor of mathematics.
The faculty of science approved the recommendations   arising   out   of   the   report   at   a   meeting   in    '*
mid-December.    The   recommendations   have   been
forwarded to UBC's Board of Governors and will also
be sent to Senate for consideration.
The major recommendation approved calls for
steps to be taken immediately to establish one or
more new campuses under UBC control, but
physically separate from the existing Point Grey
complex. ^
"Financing of at least one new campus is so urgent
that it should be requested immediately," the
recommendation says.
A second recommendation calls for the same
minimum admission standards on all UBC campuses.
Admission standards should be decided on academic
grounds in a manner essentially independent of the
problem of size.
Also recommended is a stiffening of standards for   <
retention of students in the faculty of science and the
University.
Specifically, the recommendation says that students who pass less than nine units in their first year
should not be allowed to register again, save in
exceptional circumstances. Also requested is a
minimum average in the second year for retention in
the science faculty. L
The faculty also passed two recommendations
dealing with limitation of enrolment.
The first requests the Senate to consider
recommending to the Board of Governors "that steps
be taken immediately to plan enrolment in all aspects
of the University so that total enrolment shall not
exceed at any time 25,000," on the Point Grey
campus. M
A   second   recommendation  calls  for  Senate  to
A Senate Asks for
Report On Upping Standards

es Needed
establish an enrolment limitation as soon as possible
to take effect in the fall of 1971. The total facilities
of the science faculty and the Point Grey campus
should be planned to accommodate adequately the
nuaber of students agreed on, the recommendation
snWP.
The report of the faculty of science committee
says that current UBC facilities are "pitifully
inadequate" to handle all the students now taking
courses in science.
The report adds: "This committee believes that
large numbers on one campus or in one faculty of
science inevitably force a deterioration in quality, no
matter what the facilities."
The   report says first priority  must be given  to
construction of new campuses, "and any additional
facilities  provided   simultaneously   or   later at West
<*Point Grey should be designed to cope with no more
than present enrolments."
The reasons for fixing a maximum number of
students in one location are based on human,
academic and administrative grounds, the report says.
The report claims that courses with enrolments in
the thousands create problems that no one has been
able to solve satisfactorily and large size affects the
interactions between student and student, between
faculty member and faculty member, and between
student and faculty member.
"It results," the report says, "in serious breakdowns of communication and in a general deterioration in the quality of life for everyone concerned. It
is unquestionably a major factor in the current
student and faculty unrest."

should be addressed to the Information Office, UBC,
Vancouver 8, B.C.
The University of B.C. Senate has asked for an
urgent report on how stiffer admission standards
would affect enrolment estimates and the long-term
development of the University.
A motion by Dr. William Gibson asked for the
report on how enrolment would be affected by
raising admission standards to various levels up to 65
per cent from the 60 per cent now required of B.C.
matriculants.
The motion, which Dr. Gibson said was for
information only at this time, also asked for details
on what alternatives would be available to students
refused admission to UBC under higher standards.
The motion was passed at the Jan. 8 meeting of
Senate which approved recommendations by the
committee on enrolment policy to bring minor
reductions in enrolment estimates for September,
1969.
The following recommendations were approved by
Senate and will reduce 1969—70 enrolment by an
estimated 280 students:
Students seeking admission on the basis of grade
13 will be required to meet the same standing as those
admitted from junior colleges. This would mean an
overall average of 60 per cent on the five subjects of a
full study program. Students presenting only four or
three subjects would be admitted with an average on
the subjects presented of 65 per cent.
First-year students passing only two courses will
no longer be allowed to repeat their year, with
provision for appeal to the Senate admissions
committee.
Students in the second year of the faculties of
agriculture, arts, education, science or in first year
commerce who pass in less than six units will be
required   to  withdraw  for  at   least  one year, with
provision for appeal to the admissions committee.
In presenting the committee report Dean Ian
McTaggart Cowan said the possibility of any general
restriction on enrolment for the upcoming year had
been considered and rejected. He said there were a
number of reasons for this including the fact that it
was too late to inform other elements of the
educational system that a major institution was
drastically altering its intake.
In speaking to his motion for a report on the
effects of stiffer admission standards Dr. Gibson said
figures produced by the UBC office of student
services indicated a high failure rate among first-year
students entering the University with less than 65 per
cent on matriculation.
He said students who had gone through high
school on the new curriculum and entered University
with less than 65 per cent standing had a failure or
withdrawal rate of 27 per cent in the first year.
Dr. Gibson said such students had little relative
chance of academic success and were a waste of
professors' time and University facilities.
Dean Walter Gage said the University had to be
careful about raising its admission standards. He said
the records of some graduate students now
considered among the best at the University showed
that they had entered with less than the average
which had been suggested the University might adopt
for admission.
Dean Cowan said the committee was well aware of
long-range problems in setting enrolment policy
beyond the recommendations for 1969 and said the
committee was willing to consider these problems.
Senate approved a motion that the enrolment
committee work with other committees of Senate to
consider policy for 1970—71.
Board Names Three to
Head UBC Departments
The University of B.C. today announced the
names of three persons to head UBC departments and
a new division of continuing education in the health
sciences.
The appointments were approved by the UBC
Board of Governors at a meeting on January 7.
Named head of UBC's geography department is
Professor John Chapman, 45. He has been acting head
of the department since July, 1968, following the
resignation of Dr. J. Lewis Robinson.
Prof. Chapman, who has been a member of the
UBC faculty since 1945, is a former president of the
Canadian Association of Geographers. He was a
member of the eight-man team that worked on the
Macdonald report on higher education and in 1964
was appointed by the UBC Senate to represent the
University on the provincial academic board.
As a geographer Dr. Chapman is noted for his
work in the field of natural resources and was
co-editor of the British Columbia Atlas of Resources,
published in 1956.
Appointed head of a new department of linguistics
in UBC's faculty of arts is Dr. John T. Waterman, 50,
currently professor of German at the University of
California at Santa Barbara.
Born in Iowa, Dr. Waterman headed the
department of linguistics at the University of
Southern California, where he was a faculty member
from 1948 to 1967. He is the author of two books,
one on linguistics and the other a history of the
German language.
UBC at present offers a major in the field of
linguistics. The courses are given in the department of
classics.
Named director of the new division of continuing
education in the health sciences is Dr. Donald H.
Williams, 61, who has been head of the department of
continuing medical education in the faculty of
medicine since 1960.
Dr. John F. McCreary, UBC's dean of medicine,
said the new division would coordinate all courses in
continuing medical education for doctors, dentists,
pharmacists, nurses and rehabilitation personnel.
The new division, he said, reflects the integrated
teaching program which is currently taking shape in
these same areas within UBC's Health Sciences
Centre.
Succeeding Dr. Williams as head of the continuing
medical education program will be Dr. H. Ormond
Murphy, who is currently associate director of the
program.
UBC's Board of Governors also accepted the
resignations of Prof. Geoffrey H. Durrant as head of
the department of English and Prof. R. Stephen Milne
as head of the department of political science.
Prof. Durrant, who has been head of the UBC
department since 1966, said he was resigning to
devote full-time to teaching and research at UBC. He
has had two books on the English poet Wordsworth
accepted for publication by Cambridge University
Press and is currently preparing a third manuscript for
publication.
Prof. Milne, who will also remain on the UBC
faculty, said he resigned because he believed in
limited terms for heads of departments. He will be on
leave in the coming year to complete a book on the
political development of Borneo. He has also been
awarded a Commonwealth visiting professorship to
the University of London for research purposes.
The Board also approved a change in title from
assistant to associate dean of science for Dr. Robert
F. Scagel and the appointment of two assistant deans
in the same faculty.
Dr. Nathan J. Divinsky, professor of mathematics,
will serve as assistant dean in charge of curriculum
and calendar, and Dr. Kenneth B. Harvey, associate
professor of chemistry, has been named assistant dean
in charge of time-tabling, registration and counselling
of students.
UBC Reports/January 13,. 1969/3 NEW YEAR'S MESSAGE
'68 Productive Year
Dr. Walter Koerner, Chairman of the Board
of Governors of the University of British
Columbia, issued the following New Year's
message to the people of British Columbia:
"At the beginning of this new year, I
should like to give to the people of the
province a brief report on the progress of
their senior university.
"I am glad to be able to say that the year
1968 has been a most productive period in
UBC's history. Its faculty and students have
won many scholarly honors and grants for a
variety of purposes, but particularly in
teaching and research. In many cases these
were obtained in national and international
competition with other institutions.
DR. WALTER KOERNER
"Outside funds obtained through the
efforts and stature of our faculty, amounting
to several millions of dollars, have made it
possible for us to initiate important projects
in many fields, such as community and
regional planning, computerized and
automated hospital laboratories, trace
elements as related to the food supply of the
world, tax policies and their effects on
initiative, computerized libraries, reading
machines for the blind, and a large-scale
interdisciplinary study of the interaction of
man and his environment. These are but a few
examples of the great contribution UBC is
making to the province and to Canada.
"I am happy also to report that
cooperation among our universities is
increasing. A notable example of this is the
TRIUMF project, which involves the three
public universities of British Columbia and
the University of Alberta.
"One of our increasing problems is that of
student numbers. British Columbia has
Canada's highest percentage of persons of
university age actually enrolled in
post-secondary institutions. Our campus at
Point Grey cannot possibly handle all of BC's
sons and daughters who wish to pursue
post-secondary studies.
"At present we have an enrolment of
20,088 students, and many more are
forthcoming. As I have stated on previous
occasions, our present plant is inadequate to
handle such numbers. I am not surprised that
dedicated and serious students, who have had
a struggle to get to university, find their
search for knowledge frustrated in many ways
by the present overcrowding of lecture rooms,
laboratories and especially libraries. (We have
only one library seat for every seven
students).
"To give our students the high quality of
education which they should have, we must
find some better means of equating numbers
with budget and physical facilities. Perhaps
more two-year colleges in suitable centres
throughout the province are part of the
answer. If so, we stand ready to assist these
colleges in every way possible, and
particularly in planning curricula which will
ensure transferability of students to UBC for
their senior work.
''The effort which young British
Columbians put into obtaining their
education, at great cost to themselves, to their
parents, and to the public generally, must be
treated seriously. The responsibility which
our students demonstrate is recognized by
their inclusion in active planning for the
improvement of the University, and I expect
there will be increasing emphasis on the part
which they will play in the future.
"The well-being of British Columbia and of
Canada depends to a large extent on the
graduates of our universities. All members of
the University family should do everything
possible to improve conditions for the great
number of serious students who are eager to
make their contribution to the material and
intellectual development of our society."
DR. BANESH HOFFMANN
Anti-Testing
Advocate to
Speak Here       -
Dr. Banesh Hoffmann, a former collaborator with
Albert Einstein and an outspoken critic of mass,
multiple-choice testing, will speak at the University of
B.C.Jan. 22 and 23.
Dr. Hoffmann, who is professor of mathematics at
Queens College of the City University of New York,
is best known for his 1962 book "The Tyranny of
Testing," an attack on multiple-choice testing, which
Dr. Hoffmann claims encourages intellectual dishonesty and corrupts education.
Dr. Hoffmann will speak on "The tyranny of
testing" Wednesday (Jan. 22) at 12:30 p.m. in room
110 of the Henry Angus building. His second lecture,
at 4 p.m. on Thursday (Jan. 23), in room 201 of the
Hennings building will be entitled "Just a second,'^
and will deal with general relativity. ^
Dr. Hoffmann's book on testing has resulted in
widespread controversy among testers, testing organizations and university administrators since its
publication.
In it he challenged the scientific validity of
multiple-choice tests and called for an enquiry by a
distinguished committee in the national interest.
Multiple-choice tests, he says, are "inherently
superficial, using vagueness, imprecision and worse as
substitutes for the worthwhile difficulty their format
cannot encompass."
He contends that they "sap the strength and
vitality of a nation by rewarding conformity and
quick-witted mediocrity while penalizing depth,
subtlety, individuality and creativity."
Born in England and educated at Oxford and
Princeton universities. Dr. Hoffmann collaborated
with Albert Einstein in the mid-1930's at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey.
MARATHON  DANCE PLANNED
SUB to open with Flurry of Events
The Alma Mater Society will officially open the
new Student Union building with a six-day program
of events beginning January 20.
Highlights will include four symposia, entertainment, film presentations, a marathon dance lasting all
night and a formal opening ceremony at 4 p.m. on
Saturday, Jan. 25.
The building, which cost nearly $5,000,000 to
construct, has been in use since October, 1968. The
UBC administration contributed just over $1,500,000
for food services in the building. The balance will be
paid for by students out of an annual $15 levy added
4/UBC Reports/January 13, 1969
to the AMS fee.
The four symposia will take place in the SUB ballroom on Jan. 20, 21, 22 and 24 at 7:30 p.m. Discussion titles are "The Cultural Relevance of the University," "The Image of the University," "The University as a Training Ground," and "How SUB Relates."
Participants in the symposia and a panel debate
entitled "Has the University Gone to Pot?" at 12:30
p.m. Jan. 24 had not been announced at press time.
Throughout the week entertainment will be provided in the SUB cafeteria by rock and jazz groups
and there will be major concerts in the SUB ballroom
on Jan. 21 at 8 p.m. by the Varsity Christian Fellowship and at 12:30, 2:30 and 4 p.m. on Jan. 23 by two
rock groups.
The marathon, all-night dance begins at 9 p.m.
Jan. 24 and will end with a breakfast served in the
SUB cafeteria from 7:30 to 9 a.m. on Jan. 25.
Throughout the week there will be bridge,
bowling, billiards and snooker tournaments in the
games room areas.
For further information on the six-day program,
please call 228-3966 or 228-3777.
