candidates and by "submitting opinions
as to appropriate attributes of any
candidate" for president.
His letter asks that those submitting
names "provide the committee with as
much personal and academic biographical
information as possible, and with your
reasons for proposing each name. It will
assist the committee if you can give an
indication that someone you name is
available for consideration as a
potential candidate."
The chancellor says in his letter that
the committee would also like the views
of members of the University community
"concerning the crucial issues likely to
affect the scope and nature of the
office of president in the years ahead."

On March 20, the day before he left
on his  'Man-in-Motion,'' round-the-
world wheelchair journey, UBC's
athletic community gathered in the
UBC Faculty Club to say farewell to
Rick Hansen. Athletic office budget
director Buzz Moore presented
Hansen with the Special
Achievement Award he would have
received at the Men's Big Block
banquet on March 21.
Funds received
for voluntary
terminations
UBC will get a special grant of
$2,345,000 from the provincial
government to cover costs associated
with payments to more than 50
faculty members who have elected to
take voluntary early termination of
their academic appointments.
The provincial government
appropriation, plus a $260,000
allocation by the Board of Governors,
will enable UBC to meet the costs of
the early termination program in the
fiscal year April 1, 1984 to March 31,
1985.
UBC's vice-president for
administration and finance, Bruce
Gellatly, said the provincial
government grant will enable UBC to
end its 1984-85 fiscal year without
an accumulated operating deficit. He
added that even with the grant, UBC
entered the 1985-86 fiscal year on
April 1 without any accumulated
operating fund surplus.
The Voluntary Termination of
Appointment program is available to
any member of the Faculty
Association bargaining unit.
Compensation arrangements are
based on past service and years
remaining until normal retirement
date. UBC Reports, April 3,1985
Trophies that are awarded annually to UBC's top men and women athletes were
both shared this year. Co-winners of the Sparling Trophy as women athletes of the
year are Nancy Bonham, left above, who won two diving titles at the 1985 national
universities meet, and leannie Cockcroft, who won gold medals for high lumping in
Canada West and national meets this year. In February she recorded the third best
jump in Canadian history — 1.88 metres (b'2") — at an international meet. The
Bobby Gaul Trophy is shared this year by Glenn Steele, left below, Thunderbird
football running back who holds UBC and western intercollegiate single-season
running records and finished his career as UBC's all-time leading rusher (4,.i.i.l
yards) and a total of 11 records to his credit; and Bill Holowaty. captain of the
Thunderbird hockey team, who led all scorers and was named MVP in the Canada
West university hockey association this season. Holowaty finished his fourth season
at UBC in second place in the UBC all-time scoring list.
Challenge '85 promises jobs
A joint federal-provincial summer job
creation program promises to put more
money in the pockets of more students
in 1985, according to Dr. Neil
Risebrough, UBC's associate vice-
president for student services.
UBC will get $1,628,000 of the
$2,900,000 allocated to universities
under the so-called "Challenge '85"
summer employment program. B.C.
received a total of $19.4 million of the
$205 million national allocation.
Dr. Risebrough reckons there might be
800 jobs available under the 1985
program, about 15 per cent more than in
1984, when the summer job programs
were funded by separate federal and
provincial ministries.
The 1985 program has been revised
considerably from those which have
operated in the past, Dr. Risebrough
added. "Previously, students got paid
by the month, but this year's program is
a wage-subsidy scheme. The 1984
provincial program provided two-month
jobs, but this year's program provides
jobs up to 18 weeks in length.
Under the Internship section of the
program, which will provide career-
related jobs for students in universities,
colleges and community organizations,
a wage subsidy of $3.65 per hour will
be provided. Dr. Risebrough said there is
nothing to prevent UBC faculties from
topping up the hourly rate paid to
students, using research or other funds
at their disposal.
Yesterday, however, was the closing

New programs a key
to Garden's success
"Impressive" and "innovative" are just
two of the ways that UBC's Botanical
Garden has been described in garden
trade journals around the world. The
garden's international reputation has
been developed over the years by staff
members with a strong commitment to
new programs and ideas.
"We see our role as that of a catalyst,"
says garden director Dr. Roy Taylor.
"We try to interact with as many
different groups as possible —
horticulturalists, researchers, the nursery
industry, landscape architects and
visitors to the campus."
The Botanical Garden was established
in 1916 and is the oldest garden of its
kind in Canada. The 55-acre Main
Garden, which is located on Stadium
Road on the south campus, features
the alpine garden, the B.C. native
garden, the arbor and food gardens,
the Asian garden and the physick
garden, that grows plants used for
medicinal purposes. An evolutionary
garden, that will show the evolution of
plants through geological time, is in the
final stages of development.
At the north end of the campus is the
beautiful Nitobe Garden, an authentic
Japanese garden built in 1960. Other
areas on the north campus, including
the rose garden, are now maintained by
gardeners in the physical plant
department.
Although there is no official count of
visitors to the garden each year Dr.
Taylor estimates that between 65,000
and 70,000 people visit the Nitobe
Garden from Good Friday to
Thanksgiving when there is a gateman
on duty. "We've run day-counts of up
to 1,800 visitors at the Main Garden," he
adds.
Although most of the Botanical
Garden's 15 staff members are
gardeners, the garden runs a wide range
of continuing education, professional
development and community service
programs.
"Several staff members, including
myself, teachjacademic courses in the
Department of Plant Science," says Dr.
Taylor. "We're also involved with
programs offered by the Centre for
Continuing Education, including
educational tours to places such as
Greece, Australia and Hawaii where
participants learn about the native flora,
and we also give talks to a number of
off-campus groups and professional
gardening associations."
Educational coordinator David Tarrant
co-hosts a weekly CBC television show
on gardening that is so popular it is
being moved from its slot on Saturday
and Sunday mornings to prime time on
Tuesday evenings. Mr. Tarrant also
writes a weekly gardening column in the
Vancouver Sun
Dr. Taylor adds that many of the
garden's programs are possible only
through the help provided by the
volunteer association The Friends of
the Garden.
"The Friends of the Garden carry out
a number of projects on behalf of the
garden," says Dr. Taylor. "They are
largely responsible for manning the
"Hortline", our telephone information
and advice service, they conduct tours
of the gardens, produce brochures and
travelling botanical art exhibits, they
have recently produced a video on the
garden for use by schools and other
interested groups, they help us man
our educational exhibit at The Gardeners
Show at the PNE, they organize special
lectures twice a year, and each
September they hold the popular
three-day plant sale for students.
"Their help is a means of extending
programs into the community that just
Roy Taylor
wouldn't be possible otherwise."
One such event is the garden's
Celebration Day, an "open house"
which was initiated last year and was
extremely successful. "We're planning
our 1985 Celebration Day for June 16
(Father's Day)," says Dr. Taylor. "CJOR
radio will be broadcasting from the
garden and we'll have gardening
demonstrations and tours, food booths
set up by UBC's food services
department, fitness demonstrations,
antique cars and a lot of other
attractions. Last year we had a
tremendous turnout and we're looking
forward to the same response this year."
The garden's outreach extends to
professional organizations as well. One
program that has gained international
recognition and praise is the garden's
Plant Introduction Scheme (known as
P.I.SBC).
"The goal of the program, which is
operated in conjunction with the B.C.
Nursery Trades Association and the
B.C. Society of Landscape Architects, is
to introduce attractive, useful but
largely unknown or new plant varieties
to the public in British Columbia," says
Dr. Taylor. "This involves the collection,
research and evaluation, propagation
and distribution of plant material. Our
first four plant introductions —
upwards of 1 million plants by the end
of the year — became available to the
public on March 1 of this year.
"The plants will be featured at EXPO
and will be displayed at Rockefeller
Centre in New York this summer."
He adds that the plants have already
been used in landscaping at Canada
Place and at the northern terminus of
the SeaBus and in selected Lower
Mainland parks.
"I think an important aspect of the
project is that it has brought together
the University, the nursery industry,
landscape architects and other interested
groups. We're working together,
establishing contacts and sharing ideas.
This can only be beneficial for all of
us."
Sharing ideas is something that is
important to the staff of UBC's Botanical
Garden — a group of people who are
committed to leadership and innovation.
The Main Garden is open daily from
10 a.m. to dusk  The Japanese Nitobe
Garden is open daily from 10 a.m. to 6
p.m. beginning April 5. UBC Reports, April 3, 1985
UBC's Students' Council honored a total of 12 students and past and present
members of the faculty and support staff at a March 20 reception in council
chambers, where ten of the recipients posed for the UBC Reports camera. Those
honored get certificates recognizing their "outstanding commitment and
contributions to the University and student affairs." Pictured are students Dave Frank
and Bob Gill; Byron Hender, director of the awards and financial aid office; Peter
Jones, former director of the UBC Alumni Association; former president K. George
Pedersen and his wife, loan; AMS office administrative assistant Terry Warren and
clerk-typist Val Levens; Liz Owen, activities director of the UBC Alumni Association;
and UBC community relations officer Iim Banham. Not able to attend the
reception were Convocation Senator Crant Burnyeat and Dr lohn Stager, UBC's
director of Ceremonies.
Student vote won't affect fee
UBC students voted almost two to one
last week in favor of the referendum on
athletics, but not enough voted to make
the results official.
AMS regulations require that 10 per
cent of the student body — about
2,500 — vote "yes" in a referendum for
it to be valid. While a total of 2,800
Director sought for
Asia Pacific centre
UBC, Simon Fraser University and the
University of Victoria are seeking a
director for the newly established
Canadian Centre for Asia Pacific
Business Studies.
Applicants should have administrative
experience, an understanding and
knowledge of Asia Pacific countries,
experience of business in the Asia
Pacific region and relevant academic
and professional qualifications.
The director will be expected to
develop programs designed to increase
the Canadian business understanding
of the Asia Pacific region. Applications
should be sent to Dr. T.G. McGee,
chairman, Tri-university Steering
Committee, Canadian Centre for Asia
Pacific Business Studies, c/o Institute
of Asian Research, UBC, no later than
April 10.
turned out last week, only 1,812
approved the referendum, 969 voted
"no" and there were 19 spoiled ballots.
AMS President Glenna Chestnutt
said the referendum result will be
discussed at the regular meeting of
Students' Council tonight (Wednesday).
She said a legal opinion about the
referendum may be sought.
However, the outcome of the
referendum will not affect a Board of
Governors decision to introduce a new
Student Activity Fee of $32 a year for
full-time students taking 9 or more
units and $3.50 per unit for those taking
less than 9 units.
The fee will be used to increase the
scope and quality of UBC's
intercollegiate, intramural and casual-
recreation programs, which are now
financed by an annual $11.50 fee or on a
user-pay basis.
Dr. Neil Risebrough, UBC's associate
vice-president for student services, says
he plans to continue consultations with
the AMS with a view to forming a new
Athletic Council, which will have 50 per
cent student representation on it as
well as representatives of the UBC
faculty and alumni.
In addition to administering the
Student Activity Fee, the new council
will also make recommendations on the
construction of athletic facilities on
the campus.
VOLUNTARY EARLY TERMINATION OF APPOINTMENT
(Members of the Faculty Association Bargaining Unit)
The University is willing to discuss this matter with any faculty member,
professional librarian, or program director. The compensation arrangements are
based upon consideration of past service and years remaining until normal
retirement date. The maximum sum in any one case is 24 months' salary (although
the average is considerably less) and the University will make every effort to be
flexible in accommodating an individual's preference for payment arrangements.
Enquiries should in the first instance be directed to the Head or Director and then
proceed to the Dean (Librarian or Director) and to the Associate Vice-President,
Faculty Relations (or the Acting Vice-President, Academic if the Associate
Vice-President, Faculty Relations is unavailable). Members may wish to discuss the
matter confidentially in the first instance with Dr. James Dybikowski (or in his
absence with Dr. Daniel Birch). Where the initial approach has been made to the
Associate Vice-President, Faculty Relations, the discussion will be of a preliminary
nature only; if the issue is to go further, the Head (or Director) and Dean (Librarian
or Director, Centre for Continuing Education) must be involved.
Senate asks committee
for 'criteria1 details
UBC's Senate has passed a motion
asking its budget committee to provide
full details of the criteria that will be
used to arrive at recommendations for
the curtailment or elimination of any
academic programs.
The same motion, proposed by Dr.
Richard Spencer of the civil engineering
department at the March meeting of
Senate and approved by a substantial
majority, provides that the criteria
Graduating
students
get rebate
The provincial government has
announced that it is initiating a
University Student Loan Remission
Program which provides for graduating
students to get a rebate of up to 100 per
cent on the money they borrowed from
the provincial government to help
finance their education.
UBC's director of Awards and
Financial Aid, Byron Hender, said that
at this point the only information he had
about the program was what had
appeared in an announcement in the
March edition of B.C. Government
News, a tabloid-style newspaper mailed
to B.C. residents.
"The only additional piece of
information I have," Mr.- Hender said,
"is that the program will be in operation
this year and loan remission will apply
to students who graduate in May of this
year."
Dr. Neil Risebrough, UBC's associate
vice-president for student services, said
the program was "a step in the right
direction and one that this University
has been recommending for some time."
Under the existing B.C. Student
Assistance Plan, students may borrow up
to $5,200 a year. Of that total, $3,200 is
a federal government loan, which is not
subject to the remission program. The
federal loan can be supplemented by a
provincial loan of up to $2,000,
depending on student needs.
"It's possible for a student to
accumulate a total debt of $20,800 over
the course of a four-year program," Dr.
Risebrough said, "made up of $8,000 in
provincial loans and $12,800 in federal
loans.
"There won't be many students in
that category, but we're concerned
about those students who decide not
to come to University, many of them in
lower-income families, who are simply
scared off by the possibility of a debt of
that magnitude."
The story in B.C. Government News
said the amount of provincial loan
money that will be remitted to students
would be scaled to academic
performance. While the exact scaling
formula hasn't been worked out,
students at the top of their faculty will
receive 75 to 100 per cent on loan
rebates up to a maximum of $10,000.
Students in lower categories will
receive smaller remissions.
A feature of the program is that
students from non-metropolitan areas
who are eligible for the loan remission
program will receive a "slightly higher"
proportion of loan remission.
The article also says that proposals
will be developed for extending the
loan remission program to students in
B.C. colleges and institutes.
should be considered and approved by
Senate before it considers
recommendations tor academic program
cuts.
Prof. Geoffrey Scudder, zoology
department head and chairman of the
Senate Budget Committee, said he
interpreted the motion to mean that
Senate wanted more details and
clarification of a number of sections of
a three-part document approved by
Senate in March and September of
1983, which included under the heading
of "Academic Plan," a framework to be
used by the University in relation to its
academic activities,  "whatever its
financial circumstances happen to be."
A copy of the Budget Committee
document approved in 1983 has been
sent to all faculty members at UBC
along with a document entitled
"Academic and Budget Planning,
1985-86 and Beyond," which was
distributed to Senators at the March
meeting as a memo from President pro
tern Robert H.T. Smith.
Dr. Daniel Birch, UBC's acting
vice-president academic, said the
debate in Senate had centered on a
concern that it might receive
recommendations from the President's
Office to discontinue or downsize
academic programs without any indication
of how decisions were reached and an
expectation that Senate would act as a
rubber stamp.
"When the academic plan section of
the Budget Committee document was
approved in 1983," Dr. Birch said,
"decisions about the academic program
weren't imminent. In the meantime,
some academic units at the University
have been asked to justify their
existence. I supported Dr. Spencer's
motion in Senate because I believe that
if difficult decisions have to be made
Senate must know what we are taking
into account."
Dr. Birch added that recommendations
about the elimination or downsizing of
specific programs will be formulated by
the vice-president academic. "These
will be discussed with the Senate Budget
Committee and their advice will be
sought. It's my expectation that the final
recommendations will reflect this
advice.
"But it should be made clear that
proposals for academic programs cuts
will come from the vice-president
academic, not the Senate Budget
Committee."
The memo from Dr. Smith to Senate
said that "Any proposals that entail the
discontinuance of courses, programs, or
academic units and/or the establishment
of enrolment limitations will be
presented to Senate for approval and
thereafter to the Board of Governors."
Senators, when they arrived for the
March meeting, were greeted by some
200 students who staged a flashlight
vigil outside the UBC Law Building,
where the academic parliament meets.
At the beginning of the meeting a
student senator presented to Senate
secretary Ken Young a petition signed by
9,000 persons expressing concern that
because of funding cutbacks "several
one-of-a-kind programs will be eliminated
and other programs will be severely
restricted."
Exhibit
A reminder that the exhibit
"Precious Gifts: Tibetan Aristocratic
Robes" is on display at the Museum of
Anthropology until April 15. The exhibit
is the first in a new series featuring
Asian textiles and costumes from the
museum's extensive Asian textiles
collection. UBC Reports, April 3,1985
Sunday afternoon teas begin at Cecil Green
At a time of restraint and possible
cutbacks on the UBC campus, it's
refreshing to run across a department
that's actually planning to expand its
services.
Come May 5, UBC's Department of
Food Services will begin serving Sunday
afternoon, old-fashioned teas at Cecil
Green Park, the turn-of-the-century
mansion atop the Point Grey cliffs
overlooking Georgia Strait.
The Sunday teas, which will be
served from 1 to 5 p.m., will feature
English scones, tea sandwiches, cream
and preserves, fresh fruit and pastries, as
well as a selection of specialty teas and
coffees. Food Services director Christine
Samson credits Mary Stovell, the
general manager of food operations in
the Student Union Building, with
developing the idea of the teas.
"There will be places for 100 people,
both outside on the patio overlooking
the water and inside on the ground
floor of the mansion, which has recently
been redecorated," Ms. Samson said.
There are no firm figures on how many
people actually visit the campus on a
UDC
Sunday afternoon, she adds, but many
come to see the various components of
the Botanical Garden, the Museum of
Anthropology (which admits an
average 550 visitors on a Sunday) or just
to walk around the campus.
On May 6, to coincide with the
beginning of the conference season at
UBC, a new restaurant called the
Longhouse will begin operating as part
of the SUBWay cafeteria in the Student
Union Building
The changes in the SUBWay cafeteria
operation to accommodate the new
Longhouse Restaurant will mean that the
facility will be open one hour longer
each day. Regular cafeteria-style service
will continue from 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
daily in SUBWay and the Longhouse
Restaurant service will start at 2:30
p.m. and continue until 8 p.m. seven
days a week.
The Longhouse Restaurant, which will
be located in the northern seating area,
will be decorated in a West Coast Indian
theme. People can enter the restaurant
from the main concourse of the Student
Union Building or from the street.
CalcndaR
Ms. Samson says the menu at the
Longhouse, which will feature waitress
service, will be varied enough in terms
of both food and price to satisfy almost
any palate.
"For those who want low-priced and
lighter meals, we'll offer specialty
hamburgers, pasta dishes and a variety
of sandwiches. For a little more money,
up to the $7-$8 range, there will be
various chicken, steak and seafood
dishes. We're not promising food for
the gourmet, just good value for money."
Ms. Samson adds that the new
services offered by her department
partly reflect the fact that her
operation has experienced some decline
in revenue as a result of the drop in
student enrolment and the fact that "as
educational costs increase and the year
wears on, students economize by
packing a bag lunch. Our task is to be
forever creative in thinking of new ways
in which University facilities can be
used."
She points out that her department
can also offer a variety of attractive
settings to mark retirements, birthdays,
weddings, anniversaries or almost any
kind of celebration. Food Services
often caters up to six weddings on a
Saturday during the summer months.
Incidentally, it will be possible,
though not necessary, to make
reservations for both the Cecil Green
Park Sunday afternoon teas (228-2018)
and the Longhouse Restaurant (228-3461).
For more information on private
catering at other campus locations, call
