 Fiftieth winner of the Bobby Gaul
Memorial Trophy as UBC's top male
athlete is Thunderbird basketball
player Bob Forsyth, right, who
amassed a total of 2,142 points during
his career, making him the team's all-
time leading scorer. He comes by his
talent honestly — his father, "Long
John" Forsyth, was a noted UBC
basketball player in the late 1940's and
early 1950's. Ronda Thomasson,
above, is the 1982 winner of the
Sparling Trophy as UBC's top female
athlete. In national university
swimming championships at UBC
early in March she placed first in the
50, 100 and 200 metre freestyle events
and anchored the 4x 100 metre
medley relay team that took the gold
medal. She's also a member of
Canada's national swim team.
Krajina, Curtis among
5 receiving honorary
degrees from UBC
Two retired members of the UBC
faculty will be among the five
recipients of honorary degrees at the
University's 1982 Congregation
ceremonies on May 26, 27 and 28.
Receiving the honorary degree of
Doctor of Science on May 27 will be
Prof. Emeritus of Botany Vladimir
Krajina, a pioneer forest ecologist who
was instrumental in the establishment
of ecological reserves in B.C.
On Friday, May 28, the honorary
degree of Doctor of Laws will be
conferred on Dean Emeritus of Law
George F. Curtis, the first dean of law
when the UBC faculty was organized
in 1945- He is internationally known
for his work on the law of the sea.
Others who will be honored during
the three-day event are:
• S. Robert Blair; president arid
chief executive officer of NOVA, the
Alberta corporation which has been
awarded the right to construct the
Canadian section of the Alaska
Highway gas pipeline project;
• R. Gordon Robertson, president
of the Institute for Research on Public
Policy and a former leading civil
servant in the federal government; and
• Ray G. Williston, chairman and
president of the B.C. Cellulose Co.
and a former member of the B.C.

Dr.'Vladimir Krajina joined the
UBC faculty in 1949 after a career in
his native Czechoslovakia as an
ecologist, a leader of resistance forces
during the Second World War and an
elected member of the post-war
Czechoslovakian government until
1948, when he had to flee the country
in the wake of a communist putsch.
Over a period of 30 years at UBC,
Prof. Krajina mapped the complex
interrelationships of climate, soil and
vegetation which led to an ecosystem
classification for B,C. His biological
blueprints have bridged the gap
between ecology and practical forest
management, which has greatly
facilitated the planning and
implementation of intensive forest
management by forest industry and
It was Dr. Krajina who first
approached the then provincial
minister of forests, Ray Williston, who
will receive an honorary degree on the
same day as Dr. Krajina (May 27),
with the request that Mr. Williston
support the B.C. Ecological Reserves
Act. In this action, Dr. Krajina was
instrumental in initiating this
important act of environmental
conservation. Under this act, more
than 100 B.C. areas have been set
aside in perpetuity for scientific and
education purposes because of their
unique ecological characteristics.
Although he retired from full-time
teaching and research at UBC in 1973,
Prof. Krajina continues to hold the
rank of honorary professor and visits

Athletic awards: the view from Queen's
Bv Donald Macintosh
Mr   Macintosh is professor and
director of the School of Physical and
Health Education at Quee.n s
I niucrs/tx
The continuing controversy about
athletic scholarships in Canadian
universities has been fueled by much
confusion and irrelevant debate.
Jim Coleman, a long-time Canadian
sports writer, got right to the heart of
the issue, however, in a column he
wrote last summer advocating athletic
scholarships. He evaluated Canadian
university athletics programs according
to the number of professional athletes
produced. Simon Fraser University
received top marks for having placed
24 graduates on the current rosters of
Canadian professional football clubs.
The University of Alberta was runner-
up with 11. The University of Calgary
received honorable mention in the
Coleman ratings for its co-operation in
basing the Canadian national hockey
team in Calgary and for establishing
hockey scholarships to help produce
players to boost Canada's sagging
international hockey image.
Coleman made it clear that the real
issue in regard to athletic scholarships,
then, is the question of the basic
purpose of Canadian university
athletics programs. Advocates of
scholarships see this purpose to be the
development of athletes for
professional sport or as participants on
Canada's behalf in international sports
events. Not surprising, some of the
strongest advocates of this position are
government sports officials, regional
and national snorts team coaches, elite
athletes, whose aim is to pursue sports
careers, and sports writers, whose
main orientation to sport is through
professional athletes and teams.
But many Canadian universities,
including Queen's, see their sports
programs as avenues for bona fide
students to compete with those at
other universities in a manner
consistent with the educational goals
of the universities. These students'
primary aim is to obtain an education.
These athletics programs are broad-
based and encompass a substantial
number of participants. For instance,
at Queen's University, about 600 men
and women play on some 42 different
teams in a comprehensive inter-
university schedule
Proposals that would make such
intercollegiate athletics programs
prime vehicles for developing elite
Canadian athletes could greatly
increase the chance of tipping an
already precarious balance away from
traditional goals.
In the first place, the daily training
regimens that today's athletes are
required to undergo to meet
international sports standards far
exceed the two hours per day that the
normal intercollegiate athlete allocates
to training. Such training regimens —
four to six hours a day — would force
the average university athlete to choose
between being a full-time student or
carrying a reduced academic load and
participating in intercollegiate
In other words, the nature of the
program changes; the type of person
who competes becomes primarily
interested in furthering his/her
athletic prowess with the aim of
entering the professional ranks or
participating in elite international
sports events.
In addition, commitment by
Canadian universities to use their
existing intercollegiate programs to
develop such elite athletes would
reduce the time and resources available
to other aspects of university sports
and physical recreation programs.
Philosophical objections aside, such a
step might well lead to a withdrawal
of funds currently provided by
students and administration in support
of broadly based athletic programs.
Second,-the use of existing
intercollegiate programs to develop
elite athletes would invariably lead to
a further imbalance of competition
among Canadian universities. Student
athletes who aspire to international
competition would gravitate to those
universities that already have the best
facilities and coaching, causing
lopsided competition and
demoralization of the weaker teams.
The result would be the abolition of
many sports at some universities as
well as the possibility of two tiers of
competition among Canadian
Arguments about traditional goals
and outcomes of the university
athletics programs have fallen on deaf
ears in the sporting community-at-
large. But there's another argument
which may be more telling for those
people: the professionalization and
commercialization of the university
program has little hope of producing
elite athletes in today's highly
developed competitive environment
for several reasons.
Canadians who admire the U.S.
model, whereby universities are the
major vehicles in the preparation of
international athletes, often overlook
the fact that almost 50 per cent of the
post-secondary school-age population
in the United States attends
universities or colleges compared with
some 30 per cent in Canada. In
addition, many U.S. universities admit
athletes who do not meet regular
academic requirements because of
special admission provisions for
minority groups and for persons with
special talent, including skill in
athletics. These factors make the
United States the only country that
depends on university athletics
programs to any great extent to
develop elite international athletes.
There's a second reason why
universities aren't the answer: in many
sports, a substantial percentage of
international competitors are of pre-
university age   A svstem that uses
university sports as a major vehicle to
develop international athletes is bound
to be ineffective in such sports as
swimming and gymnastics.
Third, few Canadian universities
have the resources :o develop elite
athletes in more than one or two
Finally, the regular intercollegiate
program typically runs from early
September until eaily December, with
a break for Christriias exams and
holidays, starting again in the new
year and ending no later than mid-
March.  The development of elite
athletes requires year-round practice
and competition.
Intercollegiate athletics programs
represent one of Canada's richest
sports resources. Thousands of young
Canadians take part in programs
which reflect goals that place
participation in sport as a part of life.
This is the alternative philosophy of
sport offered by both interschool and
university sports programs in Canada
one that Canada desperately needs
to maintain in an era where
performance and record are becoming
the sole criteria for judging the merit
and value of sports participations.
Let's not destroy these programs in
order to serve the purposes of elite
athlete development, where sport
becomes a way of life. Certainly, many
Canadian universities have the
facilities, expertise and willingness to
help develop elite athletes. Let's
accomplish this outside the regular
university program, by establishing
national and regional elite athletic
teams and centres at appropriate
universities. In this way, not only will
we avoid the risk of destroying existing
university sports programs, but stand a
much better chance of successfully
developing a cadre of elite sportsmen
in Canada.
But UBC's Morford says it's a tempest in a teacup
After reading Donald Macintosh s
statement on athletic scholarships in
the Globe and Mail newspaper,
Toronto, the editor of UBC Reports
asked Dr. Robert Morford, director of
Physical Education and Recreation at
UBC, for his views. The following was
written by Dr. Morford.
Contrary to Prof. Macintosh's
opening statement, there is very litde
if any controversy about athletic
awards (not scholarships) in Canadian
universities. A minor tempest in a
teacup continues to keep the issue
alive among Ontario universities who
remain split over the issue, more on
account of economic feasibility and
the problem of recruitment of the
province's top athletic talent than
because of any underlying philosophic
differences. Unfortunately, some who
are either unwilling or unable to
provide awards rationalize their
institution's position behind statements
either decrying the abuses of the
American svstem or defending the
need to preserve an outmoded
Victorian ideal of gentlemanly
amateurism. In reality, Ontario
universities have found several
mechanisms to circumvent their own
philosophic objectives so that prime
athletes in favored sports have little
diifituhy in obtaining support grants
in one form or another.
for the rest of Canada, the issue of
athletic awards is settled. The four
Western provinces and the Maritimes
all provide awards whereas Les
Quebecois have decided against
awards for student athletes competing
for Quebec universities. British
Columbia, Alberta and Manitoba all
have provincial schemes (the province
of Saskatchewan has one under
consideration) whereby student
athletes representing their university
(in B.C. either SFU, UVic or UBC) in
inter-university competition are
eligible to receive a provincial
government award of $1,000.
Eligibility, residence and qualification
criteria vary among the provinces but
all are carefully controlled and
administered at the government level.
At UBC this year, a total of 278
students competing for men's and
women's Thunderbird teams were
eligible for, and received, a provincial
Apart from the simple mechanics of
athletic awards there arc bound to be
questions raised about their impact on
sport values. For instance, whether or
not amateur athletes, at any age or
competitive level, should be subsidized
is a never ending question that is
impossible to answer to everyone's
satisfaction. Sport Federation
regulations governing training support
payments to athletes in the so-called
amateur ranks have changed greatly
during the past two decades. This has
been brought about, in part, by a
change in public attitude as an
increasing number of people have
come to realize that the original
assumptions underlying the concept of
amateurism stemmed, not from money
per se, but from status and social class
considerations. More importantly,
there has been a widening
appreciation for the rigors and
realities of modern sport that render it
almost impossible for young athletes to
pursue an education, support
themselves financially and participate
in sport at the same time. The notion
defended by Prof. Macintosh that
participation in athletics must be seen
as only a part of life is thoroughly
unrealistic if those who possess athletic
talent are to be given the opportunity
to develop it. What Prof. Macintosh is
really saying is that students without
sufficient means should not participate
in university athletics. The unfair
choice faced by an increasing number
of university athletes is whether to
work or practise. All too frequently a
student can elect to pursue excellence
in sport only if he or she is able to
find the means for financial support.
The Provincial Awards Scheme in
B.C. is one such avenue.
Finally, in a society where athletic
achievement is admired, the primary
assumption underlying athletic awards
is to encourage the pursuit of athletic
excellence among university student
athletes. One may, of course,
anticipate that because of the awards
university athletes will be represented
among the ranks of Canada's Olympic
athletes. Surely this is a healthy
development and in no way
compromises university athletics
because, in the vast majority of cases,
athletes of Olympic calibre are widely
scattered across the country.
In some cases, a Canadian national
team will select a particular university
campus as its national training centre.
UBC is one such centre for the
Canadian soccer team. However,
under a Canadian Intercollegiate
Athletic Union rule, none of the young
players who come from all over the
country to train with the national
squad may compete for the
University's teams. Further, all
national teams in training on a
university campus pay rental for
facilities, release time for involved
faculty and all clinical fees for
specialized performance assessments
done in campus laboratories. In other
words the elite athlete training concept
does not interfere with a university
program of sport. In short, none of
the objections to athletic awards
advanced by Prof. Macintosh has
much merit in the latter part of the
latter half of the twentieth century. U«C Bcpan. March 31. IM*

Restraint a third
party in wage talks
Contract negotiations between the
University and the Association of
University and College Employees
(AUCE) are scheduled to begin
tomorrow (Thursday, April 1), with
the provincial government's restraint
program casting a shadow over the
The restraint program was
announced Feb. 18 by Premier
Bennett, but few details have been
forthcoming from Victoria. Legislation
giving effect to the program will be
introduced in the Legislature in April.
All that is known so far is that wage
increases in the public sector (with
universities specifically included) will
be limited this year to a basic 10 per
cent, plus or minus 2 per cent for past
compensation experience and
historical relationships. An additional
2 per cent may be allowed for
productivity increases and other
special circumstances that have not
been defined.
An independent agency headed by a
commissioner, Ed Peck, will interpret
the regulations once they are
proclaimed and will determine
whether wage agreements conform to
the guidelines.
In addition to the 1,450 AUCE
members, the 39-member local 15 of
the Office and Technical Employees
Union also is negotiating with the
University. Both the AUCE and OTEU
pacts expire at midnight today.
Meanwhile, wages for the 2,000
members of local 116 of the Canadian
Union of Public Employees (CUPE) go
George Curtis
up 13 per cent tomorrow, as do wages
for the 26 campus members of the
International Union of Operating
Engineers. The 13 per cent increases
were negotiated as part of two-year
contracts that run to March 31, 1983.
When Premier Bennett announced
the restraint program, he said
contracts already negotiated would not
be affected.
Mary Flores, who has been with the
student housing department at UBC
for the past seven years, has been
named the new director of the
department. She was appointed acting
director in January of this year.

Complexity, contradiction,
coincidence. . .these are qualities that
UBC sculptor Geoffrey Smedley attempts
to reflect in his work, which was on
display at a one-man show at the
Vancouver Art Gallery earlier this year.
White Pleasure, left, and This, right, are
complementary sculptures engaged in a
dialogue. Cyphers which hang on a
gallows adjacent to This, far right, are
generated in an algebraic fashion and are
seen as diagrams of potential. Third
sculpture, entitled As Is/As is know as As
Is, combines classical elements — a
Renaissance facade and a model of the
Greek temple Athene Nike (below right)
— which obscure the sculpture's third
element, two steel and aluminum
machines designed to track the sun
(below). Many of the machine parts and
elements of the Athene Nike model echo
shapes engraved on the facade.
UBC sculptor's work reflects complexity, cont
"My experience of life is both
complex and contradictory," says UBC
sculptor Geoffrey Smedley, "and I
hope my work is a reflection of that
Vancouverites and the University
corrmunity have had the opportunity
to experience Geoffrey Smedley's work
this year; three of his most recent
major pieces were on display in the
Vancouver Art Gallery in January and
February, and one of them — called
White Pleasure — was reassembled in
the lobby of UBC's new Asian Centre
for Open House 1982 on March 12
and 13.
Prof. Smedley, who joined the UBC
faculty in 1978 after a teaching and
artistic career in England, says that   .
some properties of sculpture are
elusive because they are essentially
visual rather than verbal.
"In a university especially," he says,
"there's a tendency to assume that all
thought is conducted in words or
numbers. But this is not the case. In
certain art forms, say music, painting,
sculpture, dance, etc., the thinking is
actually in the medium itself, not
apart from it.
"For example, in White Pleasure I
was after a sense of stillness and
movement at the same time, and I
hope I achieved this by means of the
continual change in the appearance of
the piece as one walks past the slatted
screens which enclose it. They produce
a visual sensation which is like the
sound of running a stick along a
picket fence."
White Pleasure is so constructed
that the viewer can only focus on parts
of it at any one time and has to
continually change position to grasp
the objects inside the sculpture —
groups of forms with barrel vaults and
in the shape of hourglasses.
Another aspect of life which
Geoffrey Smedley reflects in his work is
the way in which coincidence works in
"I find that things that happened
early in life are echoed later, life
seems to rhyme. Coincidence, as
rhyming, also happens in the act of
composing and building a work.
"When you're involved in an
ambitious project over a period of
time, many simple thoughts occur in
the work. And in the course of the
project, one builds a network of them.
This network is the realm of
complexity and contradiction I
mentioned earlier."
White Pleasure and a second work
in the Vancouver Art Gallery show,
entitled simply This, are
complementary and involved in a
dialogue, Prof. Smedley says. "Where
White Pleasure is a semi-transparent
object that onq can look into, This is
closed and impenetrable. The response
to one is that of a voyeur, to the other
the response is that of claustrophobia."
This, however, can't be seen in
isolation. Standing beside it is another
element entitled Gallows, a large
frame on which hang Witness Figures,
225 tickets on which are xeroxed
patterns made from a basic set of 15
"So where the viewer looks into
White Pleasure in order to see its
contents, the contents of This have
been discharged frdm, the work and
hang on the gallows outside and in
front of it.
"I see the cyphers, which are
generated in an algebraic fashion, as
diagrams of potential . . . of growth."
The genesis of the third sculpture in
the Vancouver Art Gallery show arose
out of Prof. Smedley's encounter with
the North American phrase "as is,"
and his contemplation of the facade as
an architectural feature in the high art
of Europe and in the storefronts of
early western towns in North America.
"Until I came to North America,"
he says, "I had never heard the phrase
'as is,' in the way a car salesman
would use it.
"It struck me that the phrase was a
notion about picture making, that is,
the relation between what is and what
is pictured. And the facade has always
struck me as a very strong pictorial
device, particularly as it was employed
by the pioneers, who needed to project
a picture of something more
substantial than was actually there."
The result of this interaction is As
Is/As Is Known as As Is. It consists of
an aluminum panel measuring 12 feet
by 12 feet on which is engraved a
generalized Renaissance facade. In
front of the panel is a model of the
Athene Nike, the-temple of the victory
of Athene which stands on the
Acropolis in Athens.
The facade serves to obscure from
the viewer the third element of the
sculpture — two identical "machines"
made of steel and aluminum, which
are designed to track the sun.
"Rhyming" manifests itself in the
sculpture in this way: Many of the
parts which make up the machines
echo the shapes engraved on the
Renaissance facade. Thus, the facade
becomes an architectural rendering of
the hidden machines. Similarly, the
facade engraving echoes elements of
•tj^e Athene Nike model that stands in
front of the sculpture.
Prof. Smedley says he's glad that he
made a decision to come to Canada to
teach and work because of the sense of
artistic and creative freedom he's
experienced here.
"North America generally," he says;
' "seems more encouraging to me than
England in respect to the visual arts.
There is a very large section of the
North American public that takes art
seriously and has been absolutely
dedicated to getting the right things at
the right price.
"Toronto, for example, has gone to
the trouble of housing the Henry
Moore plasters in a gallery of the
Royal Ontario Museum. It seems odd
to me that Britain could not have
done this for one of their own
outstanding sculptors. And they still
haven't housed the collection of
Turner paintings properly."

TAs rejected in bid for seat on Senate
A proposal to give teaching
assistants a seat on UBC's Senate was
rejected at the March meeting of the
University's academic parliament.
Student Senator David Kirshner
proposed that a TA representative be
added to Senate under a section of the
University Act which allows Senate to
add to its membership. The same
clause, however, provides for the
election of additional faculty members
when student representation is
The effect of the motion would have
been to increase Senate membership
by four persons.
Mr. Kirshner argued that teaching
assistants, in their relationship to the
University, were "something between a
student and a faculty member"
because they had "certain teaching
responsibilities similar to those of
faculty members."
As a result, he said, it wasn't
intended that there should be any
increase in the number of faculty '
members on Senate.
TAs, Mr. Kirshner said, have a vital
and important role to play in the
academic life of the University and
expressed the hope that Senate would
agree that representation would be
beneficial both to TAs and the
University as a whole.
Prof. Robert Smith, UBC's associate
vice-president academic, said TAs
entered into a special relationship with
the University in 1980 when they
became a certified union as CUPE
Local 2278.
As a result, TAs have a dual
identity as employees of the University
and as students. He said he failed to
see why CUPE Local 2278 should be
represented on Senate when seven
other certified unions were not. He
added that other groups, such as
graduate and undergraduate research
and academic assistants, research
associates and post-doctoral fellows
were not represented on Senate either.
Several Senators, including Dr. Jon
Wisenthal of the English department,
who said the motion violated the
University Act, took issue with Mr.
Kirshner's contention that the number
of faculty members would not have to
be increased if TAs were given
representation on Senate.
A motion by Dr. Richard Spencer of
civil engineering to table the motion
pending legal advice on the section of
the act dealing with Senate
membership was defeated.
Dean of Graduate Studies Peter
Larkin told Senate there was no doubt
in his mind that TAs were students.
"The number of hours they work is
related to the fact that they're students
and the remuneration they receive is
subject to some income tax
considerations related to the fact that
they're students," he said.
Just prior to the vote that resulted in
defeat of the motion, student Senator
Doris Wong informed the meeting that
the student caucus as a whole did not
support Mr. Kirshner's motion.
Senate agreed to expand
membership on its Budget Committee
by four persons but turned back a
student-sponsored motion that would
have changed the name of the
committee to the Senate Academic
and Budgetary Planning Committee.
The proposal to change the name of
the Senate Budget Committee arose
out of a motion passed at the February
meeting of Senate which resulted in an
expansion of the terms of reference of
the committee to empower it to "make
recommendations to the President and
to report to Senate concerning
academic planning and priorities as
they relate to the preparation of the
University budget ....
The same motion asked the Senate
Nominating Committee to propose
additional members to enlarge trie
Senate Budget Committee.
In proposing the change of name
for the committee at Senate's March
meeting, student Senator Ian Miller
said the motion "recognized the need
to establish long-term academic
planning in the University, something
that has been lacking for a period of
He said the main thrust of the
motion was recognition that Senate is
concerned and is taking an active part
in academic planning at UBC. The
motion indicates that Senate "is
looking to the future and trying to
determine what is best for this
University and the province," he said.
Dean Peter Lusztig, head of the
Faculty of Commerce and Business
Administration, said the motion
passed in February "spoke of academic
planning and priorities as they related
to preparation of the University
The motion proposed by Mr. Miller,
he continued, described academic '
planning in a much broader sense. "I
don't think that is the role of Senate's
Budget Committee," which is "getting
involved in what is rightfully the role
of departments and faculties."
Prof. Geoffrey Scudder, who chairs
the Senate Budget Committee, said it
was not concerned with academic or
budgetary planning but with "certain
activities with relation to the
University budget." He suggested that
a more acceptable name for the
committee might be the Senate Budget
and Priorities Committee.
Prof. Michael Shaw, UBC's vice-
president academic and provost, said
the motion passed in February
expanded the terms of reference of the
committee to take into account the
relationship between preparation of
the budget and planning matters.
He said expansion of the work of
the committee was covered by
expansion of its terms of reference,
which made it unnecessary to change
the name of the committee.
The motion to change the name of
the committee was defeated by a vote
of 33-20.
Later in the meeting. Senate
approved a report from its
Nominating Committee proposing that
the Budget Committee be expanded
by four persons to a total of 10.
The committee proposed the
addition of Prof. A.J. McClean of the
Faculty of Law and Prof. Olav
Slaymaker of Geography and will
consult with the leaders of the student,

UBC's Faculty of Forestry will be
organized into three departments as
the result of a recommendation by a
presidential review committee which
reported in 1980.
Senate, at its March meeting,
approved a proposal to organize the
faculty into Departments of Harvesting
and Wood Science, Forest Sciences
and Forest Resources Management.
Dean Joseph Gardner, who proposed
the reorganization, told Senate that as
the faculty grows to meet increased
needs in B.C. it was anticipated that it
will be possible to develop the
Department of Harvesting and Wood
Science into separate interest areas.
Senate agreed to the phasing out of
certificate programs in criminology
and early childhood education at its
March meeting.
Jindra Kulich, director of UBC's
Centre for Continuing Education,
which offers the programs, said there
were a number of reasons for the
phasing-out proposals, including
declining enrolments and the
development of similar programs at
other universities and colleges.
No new students will be admitted to
the programs, effective immediately.
Students in the criminology program
will be given until June 30, 1986 to
complete it. Those in the early
childhood education program will be
given until June SO, 1984 to complete

The wall of the director's office in
the Student Health Service is lined
with medical certificates that give
evidence of Dr. Archie Johnson's high
credentials in the medical field. It is
also decorated with rows of colored
balloons and a sign put up by staff
members which reads "Happy
This mixture of professionalism and
humor is reflected in the personality of
Dr. Johnson, who retires today (March
31) after 34 years at the University, 22
of which he served as Student Health
Service director.
Taking over the post of director is
Dr. Robin Percival Smith, who has
been a staff physician in the Student
Health Service since 1971. Dr. Percival
Smith's research at UBC has included
developmental studies on a method of
male contraception.
On March 12, about 175 guests
attended a retirement party for Dr.
Johnson at the UBC Faculty Club.
Guests included his wife and family,
former and present colleagues and
friends. He was presented with a
power generator for his family cottage
on Savary Island.
Dr. Johnson was born in Ontario
and received his medical degree from
the University of Western Ontario in
London. From 1941-45 he served in
the Royal Canadian Medical Corps,
attaining the rank of major.
He came to British Columbia in
1947 and a year later joined the UBC
faculty as a clinical associate professor
in the Faculty of Medicine. He became
medical director of the Student Health
Service in 1961.
Dr. Johnson, a specialist in the field
of internal medicine, has initiated
several specialist clinics within the
Student Health Service, in such areas
as orthopaedics, dermatology,
gynecology, ophthalmology and ear,
nose and throat.
He served as president of the B.C.
Medical Association in 1966-67, and
has been director of the MSA and a
member of the Medical Care
Commission of the province of B.C.
He was the recipient of a Prince of
Goodfellows Award from the
Vancouver Medical Association.
Asked about his plans for
retirement, Dr. Johnson glances
around his office. "I think I'll begin by
taking down these balloons."

just as in her own growth she has
fostered frontiers. The struggle of men
and metropolitan centres to extend
and control these frontiers, as well as
to improve life beyond them, lies at
the heart of Canadian history       and

essay contest for the $1,000 William
G. Black Memorial Prize. The prize
was the first of an annual award made
available by the late Dr. William
Black, who taught philosophy and
psychology at UBC before his
retirement in 1963.
When the haze from flying eraser
shavings had cleared, Bruce Fairley, a
first-year Law student, was selected as
the winner of the contest.
Mr. Fairley graduated in 1974 with
a Bachelor of Arts degree in English
and enrolled in the education faculty
the following year. After teaching for
several years, he returned to UBC and
entered  first-year Law.
