Extended Care bus lifts
morale and wheelchairs
A wise man might say that happiness is simply a matter of how you
raise your tailgate.
And for the residents of UBC's Extended Care Unit, a hydraulic tailgate
on a brand new bus is a morale-
boosting therapeutic aid.
Most of the money needed to purchase the $13,000 van was raised by
last September's Push for Wheels.
About 80 patients from the Extended
Care Unit, averaging 84 years of age,
were wheeled a total of three miles to
raise $17,000 for the project. The
money remaining after the purchase
of the vehicle will be used to pay for
gasoline and maintenance for the van,
a 1979 Chevrolet van capable of carrying seven wheelchair passengers and a
staff person in addition to the driver.
Until now, the Extended Care
Unit's dependence on Easter Seal
vehicles has been a major handicap in
getting the patients out into the community. As it is located on provincial
land, the unit has been a low priority
for the Easter Seal vehicles, and reservations have been cancelled on
numerous occasions.
"Part of the rehabilitation program
is maintaining continuity with the past
as well as stimulating new interests,"
said Kathy Scalzo, director of
rehabilitation. "It is very much a part
of the UBC Extended Care Unit's
philosophy to keep our people active
in the community."
The bus will be used for more than
taking elderly people out for lunch
and tea, said Scalzo. "We will be using
it to attend civic events such as next
year's Sea Festival and social events
such as the Granville Island market."
Patients will also be transported to services in their local churches, and to
lectures and plays throughout the city.
Many groups and individuals
helped the Extended Care Unit realize
their dream of having a bus of their
own. Branch 142 of the Royal Canadian Legion donated $2,000 toward
the cost of insuring and maintaining
the vehicle during its first year of
operation. Other donors include the
B.C. Teachers' Federation, the B.C.
Teachers' Credit Union, the Kiwanis
Club, church groups, and many
members of the University communi-

Student job
placement up
The UBC Canada Employment
Centre had placed 988 students in
summer jobs to mid-July, an increase
of 53 per cent over the 644 placements
in the summer of 1978.
The centre, located in Brock Hall,
placed 2,543 students in jobs from last
September to the end of June — including fulltime, part-time and summer positions.
A report by the centre issued this
week said there were 233 companies
from across Canada recruiting at UBC
during the   1978-79  University year,

One of the many advantages of
turning the UBC residences into a
conference and meeting place during
the summer months is the possibility
of sitting in on many of the sessions
that attract the conference delegates
from distant cities.
With the UBC Conference Centre
at close to 100 per cent occupancy
during the month of August, there's
plenty to choose from. Highlighted
below are some of the major events
with public sessions.
XLIII International Congress of
Americanists:
General sessions, noon-hour panels
and symposia are all open to interested listeners. This conference
covers a wide range of disciplines,
from anthropology and art through
linguistics and political science, as
they relate to North, Central and
South America. The conference,
sponsored this year by UBC and
Simon Fraser University, will attract
some 1,000 people, with sessions held
from Monday, Aug. 13, to Friday,
Aug. 17. Noon-hour panels, in the
Angus Building, include a discussion
of Multinationals in the Americas on
Tuesday, Aug. 14, at 12:15 p.m., and
on Wednesday, Aug. 15, and Thursday, Aug. 16, two presentations on the
Andes, both at 12:15 p.m. All of the
symposia, ranging from American Indian Rock Art, a discussion of Coca,
and Urbanization to Indian Land and
Political Life, are open to the public.
A complete congress schedule is
available for $3 from the conference
registration desk in the Gage
Residence. Admission to any one day
of sessions is $7. Noon-hour panels will
cost $2. General information on any
other aspect of the congress is
available by telephoning 228-3571.
Latvian Studies Conference:
The first Latvian Studies conference will be a two-day affair at
UBC next week, Aug. 9 and 10.
Anyone interested in Latvian culture
and studies is welcome to attend. Sessions have been organized in various
fields of science and humanities, including cultural and historical
perspectives, linguistics, including
Latvian language, anthropology,
genetics, medicine and science.
Speakers from throughout Canada
and the U.S. will be present.
Conference sessions are to be held
next Thursday and Friday, Aug. 9
and 10, in rooms 221 and 325 of the
Angus Building. Information and a
detailed program available at the
UBC Conference Centre registration
desk, Gage Residence, both days.
Eighth International Conference on
High Energy Physics and Nuclear
Structure:
Not likely to be a big attraction for
many members of the public, this conference, from Aug. 12 to 18, will look
at recent discoveries in the fields of
nuclear and particle physics.
Although more aimed at people at the
Ph.D. level in particle physics, there
will be some displays dealing with conference papers and industrial displays
set up in the foyer of the Woodward
Instructional Resources Centre during
conference time. The work done at
TRIUMF, the nuclear facility situated
on the south campus at UBC, will play
a major role in the conference discussions. If you have the background and
are interested in attending the conference itself, call Dr. Jack Sample at
228-4711,  or Dr.  David  Measday at
228-5098.
1979  Women's  International   Field
Hockey Tournament:
A spectator's meeting, this one. The
World Championships will be held at
UBC from Aug. 16 to 30, attracting 18
teams from around the world to compete for the championship and an
Olympic berth in 1980. This will be
the largest team sport World Championship for women ever held in
North America.
B.C. athletes dominate the Canadian team, which has held training
sessions at UBC since the beginning of
January. Seven B.C. players were
named to the squad. Ontario has
placed four players on the team, two
come from Quebec, and one each
from Alberta and Manitoba.
Opening ceremonies take place
Saturday, Aug. 18, at McGregor Field
by the John Owen Pavilion at 12 noon.
Canada will play the Netherlands at
1:30 p.m. that day to officially launch
the tournament.
In all 63 games will be played, with
regular games scheduled for Monday,
Aug. 20, through Thursday, Aug. 23.
Saturday, Aug. 25, the quarterfinals
will be played at 10 a.m., noon, 2
p.m. and 4 p.m. Monday, Aug. 27,
the semi-finals will be played at the
same times. Wednesday, Aug. 29, is
the final game for the overall championship, scheduled for 3 p.m. at the
McGregor Field.
All games will be played at
Thunderbird Park, near the John
Owen Pavilion, and there is no charge
for admission.
Specific information on games or
teams is available by calling 228-3333.
11th National Wheelchair Games:
The wheelchair games, now an annual event, is organized by the Canadian Wheel Chair Sports Association.
More than 350 athletes in wheelchairs
will be competing in a variety of sporting events — swimming, track and
field, archery, volleyball and many
others.
The opening ceremony at 2 p.m. on
Sunday, Aug. 19, in the War
Memorial Gym on campus, will be
followed at 3 p.m. by a volleyball contest. Monday, Aug. 20, features archery competitions all day on Mclnnes
Field, directly behind the Student
Union Building, and a table tennis
bout at 7 p.m. in the War Memorial
Gym. More archery continues on
Tuesday, Aug. 21, with swimming
competitions taking place at the
Aquatic Centre from 5:30 to 8:30
p.m. Swimming continues on
Wednesday from 8:30 a.m. to noon.
Thursday and Friday are the days
set aside for track and field events,
and the athletes will be heading out to
Minora Park in Richmond for that.
Saturday, Aug. 25, features weight lifting, with the table tennis finals to be
at 1 p.m. and the volleyball finals at
2:30 p.m., all in the War Memorial
Gym.
Admission to all events is free and
detailed programs will be available
from Aug. 18 at the registration desk
of the Gage Residence. Information or
advance programs can be obtained by
calling the Wheelchair Games office
at 732-1422.

EMPLOYMENT
Continued from p. 1
and they hired a total of 963 students.
Of the 963, 30 per cent were from
Applied Science, 20 per cent from
Commerce and Business Administration, 17 per cent from Forestry, 7 per
cent from Science (including Computer Science), 3 per cent from
Economics, and 23 per cent from all
other faculties.
Average salaries offered to
graduates ranged from $993 a month
to $1,362, with a mean starting salary
of $1,172. Forestry and Engineering
grads led the group, with articling
chartered accountancy students at the
bottom. MBA grads were an exception, because of the varying types of
business experience they had to offer
employers. Some of the MBA grads
were offered salaries considerably
higher than other graduates.
More than 80 per cent of the
students who took jobs under the
recruiting program remained in
British Columbia. Of 800 placements
who reported on their location, 40 per
cent were in Vancouver, 41 per cent
elsewhere in B.C., 12 per cent in
Alberta (most of them Engineering
grads and undergrads hired by
Alberta-based oil companies), 5 per
cent in Ontario and 2 per cent in
Quebec.
A special recruiting program was
run for Education graduates at UBC
this year, in which the students were
pre-screened through applications to
various school districts. A total of 132
grads found teaching positions, all of
them outside the Lower Mainland.
The Canada Employment Centre at
UBC opened in June of 1978. Acting
Manager is Maureen Gilchrist.

Summer projects at museum help
native students, visually handicapped
In addition to the usual flood of
summer tourists, the UBC Museum of
Anthropology staff are keeping
themselves busy with several special
projects.
A program to familiarize native
students with their cultural heritage
and another program to prepare a
special museum exhibit for visually
handicapped visitors are currently in
progress.
Madeline Bronsdon Rowan, a
Museum of Anthropology curator
whose special interests are ethnology
and education, is supervising both of
the programs, and she says that they
have been very successful to date.
The Native Youth Leadership
Training Program is the result of a
collaboration between the Museum of
Anthropology, the Centennial
Museum, and the Native Indian
Youth Advisory Committee, said
Rowan. The program is designed to
expose native high school students to
the artifacts in the museum, to instruct them in the construction of
traditional Indian tools and objects,
and to build leadership skills by having the students teach others about Indian cultural heritage in tours they
will conduct at the museum.
"They will talk about use of the
cedar tree and the objects that were
made from the cedar tree in the old
days," said Rowan. (See UBC Calendar for times.) The students will all
have first-hand experience in the creation of the objects and so will be well
Advisors' night set
for part-time students
Being a part-time student is becoming a more and more acceptable way
of getting a university education, and
UBC's Extra-Sessional Studies department is preparing for that.
On August 29, they're planning to
gather together people from all over
the campus who can answer questions
about how to get into UBC and what
UBC has to offer. This so-called "advisors' night" will likely attract potential part-time students from community colleges, students who have,
for one reason or another, dropped
out of UBC in earlier years, people
who would like a university education
while still keeping a full-time job.
Figures released at last December's
meeting of Senate show very clearly
that the trend toward part-time study
is increasing. About 3,700 students
were enrolled on a part-time basis
during the '73-'74 winter session; more
than 6,000 (almost 24 per cent of the
total winter session enrolment) were
studying part-time during the day,
evening or through correspondence
courses last winter session.
The office of Extra-Sessional
Studies is concerned mainly with those
students who want to take courses during the evenings. Traditionally they
have had fewer choices of courses to
take than those studying during the
day.
But in the past few years, that
trend, too, is changing. Now evening
courses are offered not only in Arts,
Science and Education, but also in
Commerce and Business Administration, Community and Regional Planning, Applied Science, Nursing,
Rehabilitation Medicine, and several
other program areas.
Students can now complete a degree
through part-time study in the evenings in 15 disciplines. By taking winter
and spring session evening courses for
three years, part-time students can
complete degree concentrations in anthropology, English, geography,
linguistics, political science, Asian
studies, fine arts, German,
mathematics, psychology, creative
writing, French, history, philosophy
or sociology.
The three-year degree completion is
something that Extra-Sessional
Studies has been working toward for
many years. Programs are planned so
that the courses different departments
offer follow the departmental requirements, and students are informed in advance what the next session's course in their areas will be so
that they can plan ahead.
The potential students who will
come to the Aug. 29 advisors' night
will be able to ask questions about
transferring any courses for UBC
credit they might already have under
their belt, questions about what programs UBC offers, or what admission
requirements UBC demands. Any
they can get answers to their questions
from representatives of the Registrar's
Office, Student Services, the Alma
Mater Society, the Awards Office, the
UBC Day Care Centre, and most of
the academic areas that offer evening
courses.
So if you're thinking of becoming a
part-time student, or you know someone who is, keep in mind Aug. 29,

qualified to instruct visitors to the
museum.
There are 13 native high school
students involved in the program this
summer, said Rowan, and six of them
will be giving presentations in the
Haida House at the UBC Museum of
Anthropology in the period between
July 24 and August 24. She added that
the presentations would be 15 minutes
in duration, and that there would likely be three each afternoon.
To give the students a basic
understanding of how traditional Indian artifacts are made, several
established native artists were asked to
speak to the project members, said
Rowan. Two of the artists were Norman Tait, a Nishga carver from Kin-
eolith in northern B.C., and Robert
Tait, his brother, who is apprenticing
with him as a carver. Norman Tait exhibited several of his completed works
to the students, including the ornate
box shown in the photo above.
The program to prepare an exhibit
for visually handicapped people began
as a collaboration between Rowan and
Dr. Sally Rogow, an assistant professor
in Special Education in the education
faculty.
The program, said Rowan, involves
the development of a "touchables"
collection, commissioned from native
artists, to be made available to visually
handicapped and school children.
The articles will be either duplicates
of, or similar to, objects currently contained in the museum's various collections .
To complement the "touchable"
objects, some of Dr. Rogow's students
wrote a number of labels for the objects in braille. The labels describe the
objects physically, give their history,
and describe how they were constructed.
Recently a group of visually handicapped volunteers from the Canadian National Institute for the Blind
visited the Museum of Anthropology
to assess the value of the collection and
the brailled labels.
The group, including UBC students
Rob Gilchrist, third year English,
Susan Robertson, fourth year English,
and UBC graduates Peggy Spencer
and Linda Evans, examined the objects, reading the labels and giving
their impressions of the exhibit.
"Most of them were positive about
the labels," said Rowan, and added
that the volunteers had offered many
useful suggestions on how best to
adapt the exhibit to accommodate the
visually handicapped.
The next step in the preparation of
the collection is the re-brailling of the
labels by the CNIB. The labels will
then be made into a bound volume for
use by visually handicapped visitors to
the museum in conjunction with the
"touchable" items.

A healthy future
needs nutrition
education
The next time you see a kid making
a lunch out of pop and potato chips,
don't despair. According to Dr. Nancy
UBC hosts
festival of
early music
Starting Monday, the halls of the
Music Building on campus will be
echoing with the sounds of madrigals,
keyboard toccatas, recorder sonatas,
fantasias for violin da gamba and
ayres for lute. This August, like every
August for the past four years, is the
month of the Early Music Festival.
Two workshops and a variety of
concerts make up the three-week program. All events are open to the
public.
Monday, Aug. 6, is the opening day
of the two-week Baroque Music
Workshop, intended for advanced
players of early musical instruments.
Master classes, ensemble and orchestral playing, guest lectures and instruction in Baroque dance make up
most of that program, although this
year for the first time, vocal instruction will be included as English tenor
Nigel Rogers make his debut with the
program as a faculty member.
The second workshop, with
teaching levels from beginners to advanced, begins Aug. 20 and continues
for one week. In the past, participants
have come from all over Canada and
the United States, and range from early music specialists and students to
doctors or journalists with a passion
for the crumhorn. Group classes explore such fundamentals as fingering
problems and basic musicianship.
Guest lectures, after-supper singing of
music from the 16th and 17th centuries, workshops on early instruments, Renaissance dance and
madrigal singing are included in the
program.
A festival of six concerts are
presented at the same time as the two
workshops. (See UBC Calendar for
details.) The final concert, presented
Aug. 24, features Renaissance dance
specialists performing pavans,
galliards, voltes and canaries and will
involve the entire faculty of the Early
Music and Dance Workshop with
vocal and instrumental music from
the 15th to 17th centuries.
Tickets for the festival concerts are
available from the Magic Flute,
Allegro Books, the UBC music department and the Vancouver Society for
Early Music, at $4.50 each, $3 for
students and seniors.
More information about the
workshops can be obtained through
the Vancouver Society for Early Music
(732-1610) or the UBC Department of
Music (228-3113).
Schwartz, a nutrition expert and assistant professor in the School of Home
Economics at UBC, that kid is a disappearing species.
Given another 10 years, she feels,
nutrition education will be part of the
school curriculum in a major way.
Children will be versed in good eating
habits, beyond the basics of Canada's
Food Guide which has been, for many
of us, the extent of our nutrition
education. And not only will they be
versed in proper nutrition, they will
follow better habits because they'll
know what effect the so-called "junk
foods" have on their complexions,
body weight and general well-being.
Too optimistic? Maybe, but Dr.
Schwartz takes her predictions from
what's happening south of our border.
"There's been a lot of money allocated
in the U.S. for national nutrition
education programs and I really
believe that it will come here within 10
years.
1979-lrternatbnal
>fearof the Child
"So far in B.C. there's been all sorts
of starts for general nutrition education, but nothing yet that has any
'oomph'," she admits.
One of the things that makes nutrition education a lower priority for
government funding than Dr.
Schwartz would like is the difficulty of
pinpointing how incorrect diet affects
health. "The relationship between
diet and disease isn't nearly as clearcut
as the relationship between cigarettes
and lung cancer," she says.
Nutritionists do know that incorrect
diet increases the risk of heart disease,
dental disease, cancer of the colon,
possibly other forms of cancer, and
diseases of the intestinal tract. But
they can't say for sure that the cause of
these diseases is incorrect diet.
As more and more research is done,
as people become more and more concerned about body appearance and
body weight, and as treating illness
becomes more and more expensive,
public pressure will grow to make
nutrition education a higher priority,
Dr. Schwartz feels.
In many elementary and secondary
schools, pressure for better eating
habits is coming now, and in many
cases it's coming from the students
themselves.
"I've been involved with a group of
Dr. Nancy Schwartz
seventh graders at Queen Elizabeth
school recently where the kids
themselves were really wanting information on nutrition. Once they're old
enough to realize what eating the
wrong foods does to them, then they're
interested," Dr. Schwartz says.
"But you can't deny the influence of
advertising, either. 'Coke is the real
thing' is a pretty powerful message.
And kids want to be more like the people in the advertisements."
Some of the nutritional examples
used in everyday teaching in the
classroom are often negative, too, Dr.
Schwartz says. In arithmetic class, for
example, textbooks might use candies
as a counting aid or might teach fractions by asking students to half a cake
recipe calling for three cups of sugar.
"I really think that anyone teaching
at the elementary level, especially,
should have some kind of basic nutrition knowledge," she stressed.
Teachers workshops on nutrition
ire now available from time to time
and are conducted by nutrition
educators with the B.C. Dairy Foundation. Almost all the health units in
the province have nutritionists on
staff, who are available for counselling
and have printed information on
nutrition available. At UBC, many
students in the Faculty of Education
take courses in nutrition as electives
through the School of Home
Economics in addition to their Education course work.
"Things are definitely getting better. There's no question," Dr.
Schwartz says. "But it's also getting
harder and harder to get better
because of the greater choice of information, much of it conflicting, which
is available."
Food fads, diet fads, the claims of a
few of the health food stores make
people suspicious of all the nutrition
information they hear. And for most
of us, we have little or no background
in nutrition or health to be able to
evaluate the claims of different
groups.
"What nutritionists would really
like to see is an integrated health-
nutrition program in the formal
education system. But that needs to be
a priority from the Ministry of Education or the Ministry of Health. Right
now there are limited nutrition
resources available through the education ministry," Dr. Schwartz says.
If we had an educated school
populace with a background in nutrition and its effect on health, Dr.
Schwartz feels, that would go a long
way toward a potentially more healthy
adult population. We can't control
risk factors such as heredity, age or sex
in preventing illness, but we can control our diet.
"However, if people have the nutrition education and choose not to use
it, then that's up to them," she admits. "One of the things that's hard
for us to accept is that there's always
freedom of choice."
Advice to
aid refugees
