Admission changes
mean wider choice
It's been a busy couple of weeks for •
UBC president Douglas Kenny in the
giving and receiving department. Last
week he stood ready to ring a Japanese
temple bell presented to the Asian
Centre and unveiled by Japanese
ambassador to Canada Kiyohisa
Mikanagi, whose father-in-law,
Masahiko Katori, cast it. In his role as
a giver, below, the president recently
presented to Vancouver mayor Mike
Harcourt a plaque in the form of the
coat of arms of the German city of
Siegen, which recently signed an
agreement with UBC providing for an
exchange of students and faculty
members. Plaque was a gift to the
mayor of Vancouver from the mayor
of Siegen, who was present at signing
ceremony in Germany.
UBC has modified admission
requirements slightly to give students
planning to enter the University from B.C.
secondary schools a wider choice of courses
in Grades 11 and 12.
Although secondary graduation with a
minimum C-plus average is still
mandatory, the University now will require
six additional courses from a prescribed list
of academic subjects, instead of seven.
Dr. Douglas Kenny, president of UBC,
said the change still leaves UBC with
admission requirements among the most
demanding in Canada.
"However, with the provincial Ministry
Senate sends
program back
to committee
The chairman of the curriculum
committee of UBC's Senate says he is
"hoping and planning" that a proposal for
a new four-year engineering program in
the Faculty of Applied Science will be
ready for consideration for a second time
at the Feb. 16 meeting of Senate, where
the proposal failed to win approval on Jan.
The detailed proposal for the four-year
program, which the curriculum committee
did not recommend for approval on Jan.
19, was contained in a 120-page document.
This was supplemented by a document
distributed at the January Senate meeting
which contained proposed changes to the
program which were designed to meet
reservations about it raised by the
curriculum committee.
Curriculum committee chairman James
Richards, in presenting the committee's
report on the four-year engineering
program at the January Senate meeting,
said concerns about it included the
• The faculty had presented no formal
statement of rationalization on academic
grounds for a change in the length of the
program from five to four years;
• The new program reduced, in some
instances, the number of units of work that
students would be exposed to and there
was a lack of a core body of knowledge
that all engineering students should have;
• Some committee members doubted
the ability of students entering the
program from Grade 12 to handle the first -
year program of 19 units without a decline
of standards; and
• Some felt there was a lack of
flexibility in some programs that would
prevent students from taking electives
outside engineering, that there was a lack
of opportunity for student interaction
between the various fields of engineering
and that there were too many courses in
some semesters in some programs.
Dean Martin Wedepohl, the head of the
applied science faculty, said it was
envisaged that some 60 to 80 Grade 12

of Education introducing Consumer
Education as a compulsory course and with
Composition 11 also becoming mandatory
for certain students, there would be little
room for flexibility if UBC maintained its
requirement of seven courses in addition to
those required for high school graduation
by the ministry," President Kenny said.
A provincial graduation certificate also
requires Physical Education, Health and
Guidance, English 11 and 12, and Social
Studies 11.
To enter UBC, a student must also have
French 11 or an approved language 11,
Algebra 11, and a Science 11, plus three
Grade 12 courses from the following:
Algebra, Biology, Chemistry, Physics,
French, Latin, German, Spanish, English
Literature, Geology, Geography, History,
Geometry, Probability and Statistics,
Western Civilization.
Dr. Kenny said most students take about
14 courses in their final two years of
secondary school, so there would be more
scope now for electives in the fine arts or
other areas of personal interest. He
emphasized, however, that students
planning to enter specific study programs
would have to meet all admission
requirements of the program sought, as
listed in the UBC Admissions Guide.
He said the modification of admission
requirements has been approved by the
UBC Senate, to take effect in September of
this year.
UBC's School of Architecture has taken
steps to upgrade its existing program
leading to the degree of Bachelor of
The revised bachelor's program was
given academic approval at the January
meeting of UBC's Senate, which was also
told that a School of Architecture proposal
to institute a new Master of Architecture
program, approved by Senate and the
Board of Governors in 1981, had been
rejected on two occasions when submitted
to the Universities Council of B.C.
UCBC refused to approve funding for
the proposed M.Arch. program on the
grounds that it did not fall within the
definition of a new program, Senate was
Dr. Douglas Shadbolt, head of the UBC
architecture school, told UBC Reports that
the master's program submitted to UCBC
was the result of a complete review of the
school's curriculum which he instituted
following his appointment to UBC in 1980,
as well as concerns raised by a visiting
board of the'Commonwealth Association of

Students earned, saved less last summer
The Summer of '82 was not a good one
for UBC students.
Fewer students found work than in the
summer of 1981, and those who did find
jobs earned less and saved less.
According to a report prepared by the
Student Counselling and Resources Centre,
Continued from Page 1
students with straight-A standing would be
admitted to the program in the first year
with the rest of the intake coming from
students who had completed first-year
Science and from other sources, such as
community colleges and other universities.
He said he had every confidence that
students with high standing entering the
program from Grade 12 would be able to
cope with it academically.
Referring to the breadth of the
engineering program, Dean Wedepohl said
students were required to take half a year
out of four in non-engineering, non-science
subjects, which made the program
"intrinsically broad."
He added: "I will not have anything to
do with a reduction in quality of program.
It has been my aim to improve quality
when I have the resources to do it."
Dean Wedepohl's remarks were
supplemented by those of associate dean of
Applied Science Axel Meisen, who said the
proposal before Senate represented three to
four years of internal consultations in
Applied Science, consultation with
departments such as mathematics,
chemistry and physics, which provide
service courses to engineering students, and
input from the engineering profession.
He said that new material related to the
transferability of students into the program
had been included in the proposed
revisions which had been circulated to
Senate at the start of the Jan. 19 meeting.
This led to a motion by curriculum
committee member Prof. Peter Suedfeld,
who asked that the proposal for the four-
year engineering program be referred back
to the curriculum committee for further
discussion with the applied science faculty.
He said the document distributed at
Senate, which had not been discussed by
the curriculum committee, led him to
believe that applied science had come a
long way to meet the committee's
reservations about the program. The
motion to refer the proposal was approved
by a vote of 41 to 26.

Architects (CAA), which accredits
architecture schools in Commonwealth
The proposed master's program, he said,
provided for a more structured curriculum,
including an increased number of
mandatory courses and units of course
work. It also involved the appointment of
three new faculty members to encourage
an expanded research program.
Following the first rejection of the
master's program by UCBC, the school
sought and obtained the support of the
CAA and the Architectural Institute of
B.C. The program was re-submitted to
UCBC, which again denied a request for
new-program funding.
In its submission to Senate in January,
the school said that after careful
consideration of current resources it had no
recourse but to recommend that the
proposal to institute the M.Arch. degree
"be shelved indefinitely."
The revised bachelor's program
approved by Senate incorporates those
elements of the rejected M.Arch. program
which are within the present resources of
the school, Dr. Shadbolt said.
The revised B.Arch. program involves
the deletion of five courses, the
introduction of six new courses and revision
of 12 others.
Dr. Shadbolt said that the school would
continue to review plans for its future
'very few' students were able to finance
their educational costs through summer
The lone bright spot in the report was
provided by the 92 female undergraduates
from the Faculty of Applied Science who
found summer jobs. With median earnings
Sportsfest '83
unique event
One hundred disabled and able-bodied
youths between the ages of eight and 18
will team up to participate in Sportfest '83,
a day-long competition organized by
students in UBC's School of Rehabilitation
The event takes place on Saturday,
Feb. 12 from 8:45 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the
Thunderbird Winter Sports Centre.
Sportsfest representative Debbie Seburn
said that the day's events would include a
wheelchair obstacle course relay,
volleyball, floor hockey, a basketball shoot
and broomball as well as special events
such as the sledge hockey competition,
where participants propel themselves along
the ice on sleds.
"One of the things that makes Sportsfest
unique is the fact that each able-bodied
participant is paired up with a disabled
youth of the same age," said Ms. Seburn.
"Although it has been organized as a day
of fun, we're hoping it will be a learning
experience for those participating, and that
it will increase public awareness about the
need for sports programs for disabled
Spectators are welcome at Sportsfest,
and there'll be opportunities for the public
to try their skill at sledge hockey during
the day.

ot $4,250, they were the only group to
show an increase ($217) over the 1981
The engineering women also topped the
list on median earnings, their $4,250 being
$7 better than the median for male
undergrads from the Faculty of Forestry,
who dropped from a 1981 median of
$5,125 to $4^243 in 1982.
Median earnings for women foresters
were third highest at $3,666, closely
followed by male engineers at $3,627. At
the bottom end were women music
undergrads at $1,602. Male music
undergrads had median earnings of $1,937,
as did male undergraduates from physical
education. The male phys. ed. students
also suffered the biggest drop in earnings,
their $1,937 being almost 50 per cent
below their 1981 median of $3,865.
Here are some further highlights from
the report:
• 82.4 per cent of students who
registered at UBC for the 1982-83 session
reported that they had sought employment
in the summer of 1982.
• Only 91 per cent of them actually
found work, down sharply from the 99-percent success rate of 1981 job-seekers.
• The median number of weeks worked
was 11.3, down 2.3 weeks from the median
of the summer of 1981.
• In the summer of 1982, employed
undergraduate men earned a median
amount of $3,145, a decrease of $530 from
the median summer earnings of 1981.
Women undergraduates earned a median
amount of $2,291, off $260 from the 1981
• Men undergraduates reported
median savings of $1,752, a $354 drop
from the 1981 median of $2,106. Women
undergrads dropped $219   to a median of
$1,319. Male students saved 64.3 per cent
of their summer earnings and women saved
65.6 per cent.
• 28.6 per cent of the students have
part-time jobs this year, 24.5 per cent of
the men and 32.9 per cent of the women.

New program approved
UBC's Senate gave academic approval on
Jan. 19 to a new program in Atmospheric
Science, to be offered jointly by the
Faculties of Arts and Science.
The proposed program would be carried
out in the Departments of Geography and
Oceanography and would offer courses
leading to a Bachelor of Science degree in
Atmospheric Science and a Diploma in
The report to Senate said that although
UBC researchers have gained an
international reputation in the field of
atmospheric science and several
departments offer courses related to this
field of study, UBC lacks the core
meteorological courses needed for
qualification as a professional
The proposed program is contingent on
approval of new-program funding from the
Universities Council of B.C.
Also approved by Senate at its January
meeting were a Ph.D. program in Social
Foundations of Educational Policy and a
specialization in Dance within the Bachelor
of Physical Education program.
A reminder: Fill in cards
It's that time of year again when the
Registrar's Office reminds graduating
students that they must complete
"Application for Graduation" cards not
later than Feb. 15.
The cards have been mailed to
graduating students in the following degree
programs: BA, BFA, BMus, BCom,
LicAcct, BEd (elementary, secondary and
special ed.) BPE, BRE and BSc.
Students in the graduating year of the
degree programs listed above who have not
received a card by mail should confirm
with the Registrar's Office that their local
mailing address is correct. The number to
call is 228-4455.
Students in the graduating year of all
other degree programs can get application
cards from the office of the dean of their
faculty. Students enrolled in programs in
Graduate Studies can get them from their
graduate advisor or departmental secretary.
Frank, Copping elected to Board
Fourth-year Science student David Frank
and third-year Arts student Margaret
Copping will take their places as members
of UBC's Board of Governors when it holds
its first meeting of the 1983 calendar year
tomorrow (Thursday, Feb. 3).
Mr. Frank is currently president of the
Alma Mater Society and Ms. Copping is a
member of the 1982-83 Students' Council
representing the arts faculty. Both will
serve on the Board for one year.
In other recent elections, the following
were elected at large to serve for one year
on the Senate, UBC's academic
parliament: Sherri Dickinson, Ted Dixon,
Joanne Querie, Ann Rahme and Mark
The following were elected to represent
specific faculties of the University: Peter
Nishihama, Agricultural Sciences; Sean
Williams, Applied Science; Bruce Gilmour,
Forestry; Peter Kendall, Law; and Brad
Waugh, Science.
Counselling and Resources Centre and
author of the report, said 56 per cent of
students registering for 1982-83 completed
the questionnaire on summer employment
— "about the same as usual."
Mr. Shirran cautioned that the responses
are unverified and in many cases are
approximations, but said they could be
used for making comparisons and noting
One of those trends shows that female
students are still earning considerably less
than male students during the summer,
although the gap is narrowing. In 1977,
earnings for women were 62.3 per cent of
the male median, but the figure this year
was 72.8 per cent.
Senate group
to eye act
A Senate ad hoc committee has been
established to prepare recommendations to
the Ministry of Universities, Science and
Communications concerning revisions to
the University Act, the provincial
legislation that outlines the makeup and
powers of governing bodies at B.C.'s three
public universities.
Senate approved a motion by Dr.
Jonathan Wisenthal at its December
meeting to form a Senate ad hoc
committee in response to a public
invitation by Dr. Patrick McGeer for
suggestions for changes to the act.
The Senate nominating committee
submitted the following names for
membership on the ad hoc committee at its
Jan. 19 meeting: Dr. Thelma Sharp Cook

Finlay Morrison
Prof. Finlay Morrison, who retired
recently as associate dean of UBC's Faculty
of Pharmaceutical Sciences, believes his
profession has to get back to basics.
By basics, Prof. Morrison means a
revival of the good old days when
neighborhood pharmacists knew and
understood their clients' health problems
and provided counselling and advice on the
use of prescribed medication and other
products sold in their stores.
Prof. Morrison knows whereof he speaks
— he began his career as a dispensing
druggist in a small town on the Canadian
prairies in the 1930s. "When I started in
the profession," he says, "I knew all my
patients personally, you counselled them as
best you could and they expected that."
After the second World War, however,
the profession got caught up in the concept
of self-service and there was a tendency to
get away from the one-to-one relationship
with customers, Prof. Morrison says.
"But the wheel has just about come full
circle," he adds. "Even the large chain and
franchise stores are making an effort to get
their pharmacists out from behind the
counter to talk to the patient on a one-to-
one basis."
Like other health sciences professions,
pharmacy has undergone a revolution in
the last 35 years, Prof. Morrison points
out. "In the old days, the pharmacist filled
out 'shotgun prescriptions,' which were not
as specific as those prepared today. The
revolution in new drugs, their specificity
and the possibility of food-drug
interactions ... all these things have
meant that the pharmacist has to be better
educated and, as a result, there has been
more emphasis placed on training in areas
such as pharmacology and clinical
The role of pharmaceutical training in
universities, Prof. Morrison adds, is to
provide the student with a solid foundation
of knowledge, which he or she builds on
rollowing graduation through graduate
work and continuing education.
A native of Saskatchewan, Prof.
Morrison began his career as an apprentice
pharmacist in 1936. He was in retail
pharmacy until 1940 when he joined the
Canadian army, winding up as aide de
camp to General H.D.G. Crerar,
commander of the Canadian army which
took part in the liberation of western
Europe in the last stages of the Second
World War.
After the war he enrolled at the
University of Saskatchewan, where he got
his Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy
degree in 1947, the same year in which he
was invited to come to UBC as lecturer in
the fledgling Department of Pharmacy,
which was then a part of a combined
Faculty of Arts and Science. Pharmacy was
granted faculty status in 1949.
The University of Maryland awarded
Prof. Morrison the degree of Master of
Science in 1952 and his Doctor of
Pharmacy degree was awarded by the
University of California in 1966.
In 35 years as a member of the UBC
faculty, Prof. Morrison says the only thing
he hasn't taught in his discipline is
pharmaceutical chemistry. Despite
increasingly heavy duties since 1973, when
he was named associate dean of the Faculty
of Pharmaceutical Sciences, he's taught at
least one course every year.
In addition to his UBC duties, Prof.
Morrison is a well-known figure in the
professional pharmaceutical community in
B.C. and Canada. He's served as both
president (1973-74) and registrar (1956-57)
of the College of Pharmacists of B.C. and
is a former president of both the Pharmacy
Examining Board of Canada (1974-75) and
the Association of Faculties of Pharmacy of
Canada (1957-58).
He was also involved with the drafting
and presentation of a new B.C.
Pharmacists' Act, which came into force in
He was made an honorary member of
both the B.C. college and the B.C.
Pharmacists' Society, a body analagous to
the B.C. Medical Association, at a
November banquet in the Faculty Club,
where he was honored by the profession
and his UBC colleagues.
In retirement, Prof. Morrison continues
to appear at UBC on a part-time basis at
the request of pharmaceutical sciences
Dean Bernard Riedel in the development
of improved relationships with the
pharmaceutical industry and with
practising B.C. pharmacists.
He's enrolled this winter foi a Vancouver
School Board course in the repair of small
appliances ("I've always been a bit of a
tinkerer with machinery ") and he'd also
like to do some travelling and enrol for
some UBC courses in areas such as music,
fine arts and philosophy ("The kind of
thing you never had time for in the past").

The UBC English department is
establishing an endowment scholarship
fund to honor Prof. Jan de Bruyn, who
