 Highlight of 60th anniversary Great Trek dinner in the Student Union Building
on Oct. 22 was presentation of the Great Trekker Award to Dr. Nestor
Korchinsky, coordinator of UBC's intramural and recreation program and an
assistant professor in the School of Physical Education and Recreation. AMS
president Dave Frank made the presentation at dinner presided over by Dean
Emeritus of Agriculture Blythe Eagles, seated right, himself a former trekker.
Halifax next if 'Birds win
The UBC Thunderbirds will put their
perfect record on the line Friday night at
Thunderbird Stadium when they meet the
University of Manitoba Bisons in a sudden-
death game for the Western Intercollegiate
Football League Crown.
The 'Birds won all eight league games, a
feat never before accomplished by a WIFL
team, whereas Manitoba has a record of
five victories and three defeats.
But UBC coach Frank Smith isn't
making any wild predictions about Friday's
"You can say we're pleased with the
season so far, and hopefully we'll continue
to play well," he said after his team had
defeated the University of Saskatchewan
Huskies 60-19 on Oct. 23 for win number
The 60 points is the most ever scored in
a single game by a UBC football team.
Ken Munro, place-kicker and wide
receiver, scored 18 of them (touchdown,
single, Field goal and eight converts) to run
his total for the year to 100 points,
breaking the WIFL regular-season record
of 98 that was held by Brian Fryer, who
now plays for the Edmonton Eskimos.
Munro's eight converts is a UBC one-game
If UBC defeats Manitoba, the 'Birds will
play in the Canadian semi-final, the
Atlantic Bowl, on Nov. 13 in Halifax. A
win there would put them in the College
Bowl, Nov. 20 in Toronto.
Also coming up for UBC is the Shrum
Bowl, the annual game against Simon
Fraser University Clansmen for the United
Way. This year's game will be Nov. 27 at
Empire Stadium.
Since the Shrum Bowl was revived in
1978, UBC has won three of four games. It
was 22-14 UBC in 1978, 4-3 UBC in 1979,
30-3 SFU in 1980 and 33-1 UBC last year.
Friday's game against Manitoba at
Thunderbird Stadium starts at 7:30 p.m.
Tuition fees will rise 5 per cent at UBC
next year, but direct student aid will
increase by an even greater percentage.
The new fee schedule, approved
Tuesday (Nov. 2) by the University's Board
of Governors, means that an Arts, Science
or Education student entering UBC at first -
year level next September will pay $882,
up $42 from this year's $840. At the upper
end. Dentistry and Medicine tuition fees
rise to $1,523 from $1,450.
The Board of Governors also voted to
increase UBC's appropriation for
fellowships, scholarships, prizes and
bursaries by 5 per cent, or approximately
On top of this, the Board established a
special fund of $500,000 to assist students
who are financially disadvantaged. This
money will be available at the rate of
$100,000 a year for Five years and replaces
a $250,000, 5-year fund that ran out this
year, meaning a net gain in student
assistance of another $50,000 a year.
Provided the level of enrolment is
maintained, tuition fees next year will
account for 11.15 per cent of this year's
operating budget at UBC.
The UBC Board of Governors decided in
1979 that tuition fees would be set each
November for the following year, and that
the fees should total not less than 10 per
cent of the net budgeted general purpose
operating costs for the current year.
The fee schedule approved Tuesday is
effective May 2, 1983, at the start of UBC's
spring session. Fees for the spring and
summer sessions also rise 5 per cent, to $73
per unit of study, an increase of $3.
AUCE votes 'yes'
on new agreement
UBC's largest union, the Association of
University and College Employees (AUCE),
has voted to accept a new two-year
agreement with the University that provides
for an average wage increase of 8 per cent
retroactive to April 1, plus an across-the-
board increase next April 1 of 5.25 per
The new wage scale is subject to
ratification by the UBC Board of
Governors and the approval of
Compensation Stabilization Commissioner
Ed Peck, who approved a similar two-year
agreement in August for the UBC local of
the Office and Technical Employees Union
Although the average increase this year
for the 1,400 AUCE members is 8 per cent,
the actual increase to individual employees
ranges from a low of 6 per cent to a high
of 12.7 per cent, with those at the top end
of the scale receiving the largest increases.
Under the old agreement there were 40
positions and 10 pay grades. There now
are 52 positions and 11 pay grades.
Three examples:
Clerk I, which had a starting wage of
$1,130 a month or $7.43 an hour, now
goes to $1,198 a month or $7.88 an hour,
an increase of 6 per cent.
Library Assistant 4, which had a starting
wage of $1,491 or $9.81 an hour, goes up
7.6 per cent to $1,605, or $10.56 an hour.
Senior Computer Operator jumps 12.7
per cent, to a starting monthly wage of
$2,055 from $1,823. New hourly wage is
$13.52 up from $11.99.
Last November, AUCE members turned
down monthly increases ranging from $15
to $100 that were offered by the University.
A similar offer to the OTEU was accepted.
Both unions had asked for wage re-
openers because their two-year contracts
gave them a wage increase last year of only
9.5 per cent, considerably below the rise in
the cost of living and below the 'going rate'
for wage increases last year at the
The largest increases offered last
November, as they are in the new
agreement, were for the top pay scales.
Bob Grant, director of Employee
Relations, explained:
"Our surveys showed that whilst our
junior staff were well compensated relative
to similar positions elsewhere, many of our
more senior positions had fallen behind.
Faced with the inability to obtain and
retain qualified candidates for many of our
senior positions, we saw in the requests for
wage re-openers an opportunity to rectify a
long-standing problem which has faced the
University in recognizing the different
levels of responsibilities and accountabilities
required of our senior administrative and
support staff."
Mr. Grant said the new agreement
accomplished what the University had
attempted to accomplish a year ago.
Julia Levy
gets 'gold'
for research
UBC's Julia Levy is the first woman to
receive a Gold Medal from the Science
Council of B.C.
Prof. Levy of the microbiology
department was awarded one of three gold
medals from the council recently for her
research in immunology. She is perhaps
best known for developing a rapid,
sensitive and inexpensive test for the early
detection of lung cancer.
This is the first year UBC has not swept
all gold medals, as the University did in
1980 — the year the awards were
established — and last year.
Previous UBC gold medalists are Prof.
Harold Copp, former head of the
physiology department, Prof. Clayton
Person of the botany department. Prof.
David Suzuki, zoology department, and
Prof. John Warren, former director of the
TRIUMF cyclotron project and member of
the physics department. UBC Reports November 3, 1982
to study
at UBC
Commerce dean Peter Lusztig and
associate dean Michael Goldberg are in
Ottawa today, working out details of an
exchange program that will bring students
from China to UBC and send UBC
Commerce professors to China.
Also at the Ottawa meeting are 23
Chinese university officials who have been
visiting Canadian universities for the past
two weeks. The Chinese delegation, headed
by Dr. Teng Wei-Zao, president of Nankai
University, visited UBC Oct. 22.
Prof. Goldberg said before leaving for
Ottawa that the UBC Commerce faculty is
prepared to take as many as 15 or 20
Chinese graduate students each year,
although he expected that only a half-
dozen or so will come the first year, in July
of 1983.
Dr. Goldberg said the exchange program
is an indirect result of the Cultural
Revolution which devastated Chinese
universities for more than a decade, into
the mid-1970s. As a result, China finds
itself short of management expertise to
move the economy forward and of
management education and research
programs at the university level.
To assist China with its efforts to
upgrade management education, the
Canadian International Development
Agency (CIDA) sent a mission to China in
the spring of this year to meet with officials
of eight 'key' universities identified by the
Ministry of Education in Beijing as being
the primary centres for management
education across China.
As a follow-up step, representatives from
leading Canadian business and
management schools toured China this past
summer. Prof. Goldberg was one of them.
They met Ministry of Education officials
and visited the eight 'key' universities to
discuss a possible exchange plan.
Prof. Goldberg said there would be four
levels of Chinese visitors to UBC
graduate students coming for a year of
study, not leading to a degree; students
coming to obtain MBA and MSc   degrees
and then returning to China to teach;
senior students coming to work on Ph.D.
programs at UBC; and senior Chinese
faculty who would come for research or for
He said any student coming from China
would have to meet all UBC entrance
requirements. Tuition and living expenses
would be paid by CIDA.
This would be "an investment in the
future," said Prof. Goldberg. The Chinese
trained in Canada would be future leaders
in their country.
Visits to China by UBC faculty would
initially be for only two or three weeks, to
help with the setting up of programs, said
Prof. Goldberg. Then some might go for
three months over the summer, then for
three or four months to teach, and finally
for a full year of teaching.
A problem is this area, said Dean
Lusztig, is the continuing shortage of
faculty in Commerce.
In the 1960s, UBC worked with CIDA to
help with the establishment of business
schools in Singapore and Kuala Lumpur.
Word processors;
all here Nov. 19
If you are thinking of investing in a
word processor but aren't sure exactly what
might suit your needs, plan to attend the
Word Processing Fair to be held on Nov.
19 in the Student Union Building.
The fair is co-sponsored by the
purchasing department and the university
co-ordination office and will run from
9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in SUB 207-209.
The latest equipment offered by the four
major suppliers — AES, Micom, Xerox
and Wang — will be demonstrated.
UBC political scientist Alan Cairns, left, joined a distinguished group of
Canadians recently when he was named one of four 1982 winners of the Canada
Council's $25,000 Molson Prize for "attaining the highest levels of excellence as
a teacher and scholar. " Award was presented by Andre Fortier, right, president
of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, which met on the UBC
campus on Oct. 21.
Researchers advised
to fight for beliefs
Researchers in the fields of social
sciences and humanities were told on Oct.
21 that they must fight for what they
believe in.
Andre Fortier, president of the Social
Sciences and Humanities Research Council
(SSHRC) of Canada, told about 40 faculty
and students that they must pull together
and fight for their disciplines.
"If you don't," he said, "you will be in
serious trouble."
Mr. Fortier, who chaired an open
meeting of the SSHRC in Buchanan 10.6,
said funding for SSHRC projects had
climbed $26 million since it was established
four years ago. Prior to 1978, the SSHRC
Universities are part of the communities
which they serve. As fund-raisers, we must
work to make the public aware of the
important social and economic
contributions the University makes to the
That was the message from Chancellor
J.V. Clyne to newly-appointed members of
the UBC Resources Council at the council's
first general meeting since being
reorganized recently.
Noting that individuals and corporations
alike will support only those causes which
seem socially relevent, Mr. Clyne described
the Resources Council's task as one of
community relations. A primary function
of the council, he said, should be to
provide advice as to which University
projects are most likely to attract the
financial support of individuals,
corporations and foundations.
Ronald Heath, on loan to UBC from
Cominco, has been appointed executive
secretary to the council.
Mr. Heath brings an extensive and
varied background in market research and
corporate planning. In his 34 years with
Cominco, he established his exceptional
abilities in the fields of business
administration, corporate forecasting and
external relations.
As an arm of the UBC Alumni
Association, the Resources Council cooperates with the president's office in the
co-ordination of all fund-raising activities
within the private sector. As executive
secretary, Mr. Heath will assist in
recommending long-term fund-raising
strategies that will best serve the
University's needs.
was a division of the Canada Council.
He said the amount had risen to $57
million from $31 million, although $14
million of the increase just covered
inflation. Of the other $12 million, $8
million had gone to strategic and Canadian
studies, $4 million to the general program.
He added that the number of requests
for grants had doubled since 1978.
Questioned about the council's
unwillingness to fund research centres, Mr.
Fortier said this was a "very sensitive
matter." He said support for "centres of
excellence" meant less support for others;
this method of funding, he said, was
requested only by four or five big,
universities. But he said the council was
considering the matter.
Questioned about a duplication of
application, with a professor's request
possibly going to the strategic grants
evaluators and also to an 'ordinary'
adjudication committee, Mr. Fortier said
this was a problem but he assured his
audience that  "no one gets two grants."
Dr. Douglas Kenny, UBC president and
a member of the SSHRC, thanked Mr.
Fortier "as a friend of UBC" — both as
president of the SSHRC and earlier when
he was Under Secretary of State for the
Arts and Culture.
Lengthy briefs from the Faculty of Arts
and the Faculty of Education were
presented to the SSHRC upon the occasion
of the council's visit to UBC, but neither
was discussed at the meeting.
Copies of the briefs are available for
reading in the offices of Dean Robert Will
and Dean Daniel Birch.
Students to vote
on AMS fee change
UBC students will be asked this month
to approve a $20 increase in AMS fees —
$15 for a specific list of major building
projects, $3 for intramurals, and $2 for
expansion of general AMS services.
Balloting will take place the week of
Nov. 15 to 19, with a minimum 2,500 yes'
votes needed for approval.
Dave Frank, AMS president, said fees at
UBC are about one-sixth of AMS fees at
most other campuses and have gone up
only once since 1949.
"It is time we decided to get what we
need at UBC, and to shape this campus
the way students want it to be," he said.
Among the major projects proposed in
the referendum are development of a
16,000-square-foot area in SUB, the
upgrading of day care facilities, renovation
of the horse barn on Blot, development of
athletic facilities, and development of
student housing.
