Busy two weeks for Kenny in China, Japan
Getting into the armoury to buy textbooks last week was something of an endurance test, with lineups that stretched along
Memorial Road from West Mall to Main Mall. But these two students, inching along with lawn chairs in tow, made the wait
bearable by catching the last of the summer sunshine.
Ottawa funds chemical microscope
A breakthrough in research funding by
Ottawa has resulted in the single largest
grant for research equipment in UBC's
Prof. Laurance Hall of UBC's chemistry
department has received a $795,000 grant
from the Natural Sciences and Engineering
Research Council (NSERC) and the
Medical Research Council (MRC) for work
on a chemical microscope based on nuclear
magnetic resonance spectroscopy.
NSERC president Mr. Gordon MacNabb
told a UBC news conference last Thursday
that the collaborative funding by the two
councils was a "breakthrough in methods
of funding by the agencies" and said he
hoped research grants of this nature would
continue so that "excellent research
proposals such as Prof. Hall's continue to
receive funding."
Prof. Hall and Dr. Subramaniam
Sukumar, a UBC Killam Postdoctoral
Fellow, are developing a chemical
microscope that will be the first of its kind
in Canada, and possibly the world.
The instrument has applications in a
wide range of areas. It may be used by
chemists to analyse the structure of new
plastic molecules, by geologists and mining
experts to determine the location and
amount of petroleum in rock samples, by
biologists and agricultural scientists to
learn more about seed germination and to
improve crops, by pharmaceutical scientists
to study the distribution and metabolism of
drugs in the body, and by engineers,
physicists and biologists who want to know
Laurance Hall
how liquids move — whether it be blood
through capillaries or the flow of oil
between two metal surfaces.
The NMR chemical microscope will
allow the biochemistry of the body to be
studied at a microscopic level without
disturbing the body or removing samples
from it. It will be possible to detect
biochemical occurrences without any pain
or discomfort to patients, while they are
conscious and alert.
"The essence of nuclear magnetic
resonance," explains Prof. Hall, "is that
the nuclei of some atoms are 'magnetic'
— they behave like a compass needle and
point towards a magnet placed nearby. For
example, the protons in the nuclei of
atoms in a sample of water tend to point in
a certain direction when the sample is
placed in the hollow of a cylindrical
"Once the nuclei in the water are lined
up in a particular direction inside the
magnet, their direction can be changed by
beaming a particular radio frequency
signal or resonance from the nuclei. This
resonance can be detected by a radio
frequency receiver, similar to a stereo
receiver, and the signal can be displayed
on a television screen as the nuclear
magnetic resonance of the sample."

UBC president Dr. Douglas Kenny left
last Friday (Sept. 17) for meetings in China
and Japan with officials of universities with
which UBC has student and faculty
exchange programs.
While in China, President Kenny will
visit Beijing at the request of China's
minister of education, where he will
explore increased university co-operation in
matters of teaching and research with the
President Kenny said he was pleased to
be able to respond to the invitations to visit
the Far East because of the growing
importance of educational exchanges and
co-operative research among universities on
the Pacific Rim.
UBC, he said, has an expanding
teaching and research program on matters
of mutual concern between Canada and
China, which is carried out in a variety of
"In addition," he said, "we now have an
attractive new Asian Centre, which serves
as a focus for this expanding program. I
expect UBC will play a significant role in
the development of inter-university cooperation that will see an expanded
exchange program involving Canadian and
Asian scholars and graduate students." He
will be discussing these matters with
representatives of Beijing University,
Quing-hua University and Peoples'
Dr. Kenny will also be visiting the city of
Guangzhou (Canton) where he will discuss
with officials of Zhongshan University the
renewal and expansion of an existing
exchange agreement.
Also visiting Zhongshan University the
same week is UBC's men's basketball team,
which was invited for a one-week stay in
Canton for a series of matches against
university and city teams. The basketball
team will spend a second week in South
Korea, at the invitation of the South
Korean Basketball Association, for matches
with corporation teams.
The second week of Dr. Kenny's trip will
be spent in Japan for meetings with
officials of the ministry of education in
Tokyo, and for visits to the Universities of
Tokyo and Tsukuba, with which UBC has
exchange agreements.
He will discuss the present agreements
with representatives from the two
universities and explore possibilities for
expanding these programs.
While in Japan, Dr. Kenny will attend a
meeting in Hiroshima of the Pacific Circle
Consortium, a major Pacific group with
members from Japan, Canada, the United
States, Australia and New Zealand. The
group focuses on educational and research
matters concerning Pacific Rim countries.
The Pacific Circle Consortium was
established in 1977 as an official program
of the Centre for Educational Research
and Innovation of the Organization for
Economic Co-operation and Development
(OECD/CERI). The goal of the consortium
is to improve international and
intercultural understanding among the
people and nations of the Pacific.
In Japan, President Kenny will also meet
with officials of the Japan Foundation,
which has contributed generously to UBC's
Asian Centre. UBC Reports September 22, 1982

Since atoms of different elements have
individual magnetic resonance, the method
can be used to identify the chemical
properties of unknown samples.
Since 1978, two new methods have been
developed which enable NMR to be used
to locate the positions of chemical
substances within an object.
One method provides information on the
anatomy or structure of the body at a
point in time. The second provides
information on the biochemistry or
functions of the body — chemical changes
that take place over a period of time — for
example, whether a kidney is functioning
By combining what up until now have
been two separate types of NMR
measurement, the UBC chemical
microscope will allow scientists and
physicians to determine the biochemistry of
a part of the body with much greater
accuracy than is now possible.
Another major NMR machine is
scheduled for the Health Sciences Centre
Hospital on campus. It will be combined
with two other imaging devices, the more
conventional computer tomograph (CAT)
and positron emission tomograph (PET)
The CAT scanner provides three-
dimensional images of the entire body.
About half a dozen hospitals in the
province already have CAT scanners.
A PET scanner is now being built at the
TRIUMF cyclotron project at UBC and
will be moved to the Health Sciences
Centre Hospital. There are two other PETs
in Canada, at the Montreal Neurological
Institute and at McMaster University in
Hamilton. Neither is as powerful as the
one being built at UBC.

Coach appointed for
women's rowing
UBC's athletics department has
announced the appointment of Drew
Harrison as coach of the women's rowing*
Mr. Harrison rowed for Syracuse
University in the 1960s, and after
graduation rowed for the Potomac Boat
Club in Washington. He returned to
Syracuse University in 1973 to coach the
freshman crew. His crews have won the
frosh International Rowing Association
championship three times in the past six
years and came a close second twice.
In 1981, he coached the lightweight U.S.
national team and was involved in the U.S.
Olympic fours program.
Mr. Harrison comes to UBC in a joint
appointment with the Vancouver Rowing
Club, where he will also coach the women's
Sally Creighton dies;
she trekked, taught
Kathleen Sally Creighton, a former
member of UBC's English department who
became one of Canada's best known radio
and television writers and commentators
after retiring from teaching in 1949, died
in September at the age of 79.
Born in Ashcroft, B.C., Sally Creighton
took part in the Great Trek of 1922, the
student protest that led to the completion
of UBC on its present site on Point Grey.
She graduated from UBC in 1923 with
first class honors in English and history and
the following year received her Master of
Arts degree from the University of
She then joined the UBC English
department, where she taught until 1927,
when she married John H. Creighton. Mrs.
Creighton taught at the University of
Toronto and with her husband at
Bennington College, in Vermont, until
1938, when they both joined the UBC
English department.
Mrs. Creighton retired from teaching in
1949 to begin her career as a radio script
writer, a radio and TV commentator and
the author of numerous magazine articles
and reviews. Her husband continued to
teach at UBC until his retirement in 1963.
He died in 1977.
At UBC, Mrs. Creighton served for nine
years on the UBC Senate and for a one-
year term on the Board of Governors
following her retirement from lecturing.
Mrs. Creighton is survived by her son,
Denis, a UBC graduate in Arts and Law.

The death of Arthur Delamont, founder
of the world famous Kitsilano Boys Band,
on Sept. 11 at the age of 90, is going to
leave a big gap in the UBC music scene.
Since 1936, the UBC Pep Band led by
Mr. Delamont has enlivened campus
football, hockey and major rugby games
with musical selections before the game, at
half-time and following scoring plays.
His last campus appearance was on Sept.
3, when he led the band at UBC's first
home football game against the University
of Manitoba.
The Pep Band is made up of alumni of
the Kitsilano Boys Band, which Mr.
Delamont founded in 1928. Not a few of
them were wealthy retired lawyers and
businessmen who used to show up in their
Cadillacs to play out of a sense of loyalty to
their former leader, according to UBC
athletic business manager Buzz Moore.
"The only pay they got was a hamburger
or hot dog and a bottle of pop," Mr.
Moore said. He said the University gave
Mr. Delamont an honorarium of $500 a
year, which he used to buy instruments
and music to play at UBC games.
Mr. Moore wouldn't hazard a guess
about the future of the Pep Band. "We'll
be talking to some of the members to see if
it's possible for them to continue playing,"
he said.
Senate backs
new program in
site planning
A two-year program leading to a
Certificate in Site Planning was given
academic approval by the UBC Senate
Sept. 15.
It would be the only such program in
British Columbia, providing specialized
education in site planning for land
surveyors and others with similar
professional backgrounds.
The program would operate on a self-
sustaining basis with costs recoverable from
fees. Admission would be limited to 12 to
14 students annually.
The program has still to be considered
by the Universities Council and the UBC
Board of Governors.
At this same "academic approval" stage
is a joint Medicine/Science program that
would lead to a Bachelor of Science degree
in pharmacology.
It was noted at Senate that in contrast to
some European countries, relatively few
North American universities have
undergraduate programs in pharmacology.
In Canada, such programs are offered only
by the University of Toronto and the
University of Western Ontario. As a
consequence, there is a shortage of

Key role for
UBC centre
The UBC Centre for Human Settlements
has been commissioned to prepare the lead
paper for the sixth session of the United
Nations Commission on Human
Settlements that will be held in Helsinki
next May.
Theme of the May meeting will be  Land
for Human Settlements' with special
reference to the UN's role in squatter
The paper being prepared by the UBC
centre will focus on national governmental
policies and international co-operation.
This major theme paper will be based on
the work of two invitational seminars held
on campus in November, 1981 and April,
1982 and on ongoing research.
Dr. Peter Oberlander, director of the
centre, is in charge of the research project,
with Mr. Peter Boothroyd, lecturer in the
School of Community and Regional
Planning, as the senior research associate.
The project is being funded by the UN
Centre for Human Settlements, Nairobi,
the Central Mortgage and Housing
Corporation, the Canadian International
Development Agency, and the University.
the public are invited to attend.
The totem pole carved by Jim Hart is a
copy of a 19th century pole from the
Haida village of Old Masset in the Queen
Charlotte Islands, where the artist was
born. The original was damaged in a
severe storm and is in storage at the UBC
Museum of Anthropology.
The festivities begin at noon on
Saturday, when the pole will be carried
from the carving shed in UBC's Totem
Park to the museum. The main ceremony
begins at 3 p.m.
More than a hundred people are needed
to raise the totem pole, which is
accomplished using cross braces and ropes.
Claude Davidson, a Haida Indian from the
Queen Charlotte Islands, will direct the
participants in the pole-raising, a process
which takes precise timing.
The pole is the first totem pole in the
Masset style to be displayed at the UBC
Museum of Anthropology.
U of Toronto also

UBC isn't the only major Canadian
university searching for a new president.
The University of Toronto is currently
seeking a successor to President James Ham
who, like UBC's President Douglas Kenny,
steps down June 30, 1983.
President Ham's successor, who must be
a Canadian citizen, is expected to take
office on July 1, 1983.

Pat McGeer's leave
extended by Board
Dr. Leslie Peterson, Q.C., chairman of
UBC's Board of Governors, announced
Friday that the Board has extended the
leave of absence of Dr. Patrick McGeer
from his duties at the University while
holding political office during the next
Legislature of British Columbia.
This decision was made on the
'Birds are
riding high
The UBC Thunderbirds are undefeated
at the midpoint of their Western
Intercollegiate Football League schedule,
but coach Frank Smith isn't about to start
talking national championship.
"I think we've got a good football team,"
is about as far as Smith will go.
"I'm not surprised that we are doing so
well, but we are taking each game as it
comes. Right now, I'm not looking beyond
our game here against Calgary."
Smith said his main concern is injuries to
key players, or a letdown by the team after
some relatively one-sided victories.
The Thunderbirds played three of their
first four league games on the road, which
gives them three of their final four at
Thunderbird Stadium — starting Friday,
Oct. 1, when the University of Calgary
Dinosaurs are the visitors. The 'Birds are
away Oct. 9, at the University of
Manitoba, then are at home to the
University of Alberta Oct. 15 and to the
University of Saskatchewan Oct. 23. The
two Friday games at Thunderbird Stadium
start at 7:30 p.m., the Saturday game
against Saskatchewan at 2 p.m.
In their four league games, the  Birds
have scored 143 points, their opponents
only 34. They opened the season with a
37-17 win over Calgary, then dumped
Manitoba 37-6, Alberta 32-4 and
Saskatchewan 37-7.
If the Thunderbirds finish first or second
in the WIFL, they'll be in the league
playoff Nov. 6 at the home of the first-
place team. The two Canadian semi-finals
are Nov. 13 and the College Bowl, for the
national crown, will be played Nov. 20 in
recommendation of the president after
consultation with the Dean of Medicine
and the Faculty Association, Dr. Peterson
Dr. McGeer, who is minister of
universities, science and communications in
the provincial government, is currently on
leave of absence without pay as professor of
neurological sciences in UBC's Faculty of
Dr. Peterson said that Dr. McGeer had
sought the extension of his leave because of
the rule in the UBC Faculty Handbook
which provides that a faculty member
granted full-time leave while holding
political office is expected to resign if his
absence exceeds seven continuous years or
two successive Legislatures.
This rule ensures that the University will
have the opportunity to decide whether it
is in the academic interest of the University
to keep the position of the faculty member
on political leave vacant beyond seven
years or two Legislatures, as the case may
be; it does not preclude the faculty
member from applying for an extension of
his leave or the University from granting
that extension.
Dr. Peterson added that a signficant
factor in reaching the decision to extend
Dr. McGeer's leave was his continuing
scholarly activity. This activity, he said,
has been amply demonstrated by his
continuing association with his research
laboratory in the Faculty of Medicine at
UBC and his co-authorship of numerous
papers resulting from research, which have
appeared in academic journals.

More union records given
to UBC for safekeeping
The Special Collections Division of
UBC's library is rapidly becoming a major
repository for records and material that
document the history of our province.
George Brandak of the Special
Collections Division savs that a number of
unions and other organizations have
donated material relating to their past
activities to UBC's archives, in order to
preserve the information and make it
readily accessible to scholars, students and
the public.
The latest example of this is a recent
donation by the United Fishermen and
Allied Workers' Union of material relating
to the establishment and activities of the
union. Some of the other organizations that
have deposited their records at UBC
include the International Union of Mine,
Mill and Smelter Workers (Canada), the
International Woodworkers of America
(District No. 1), the International
Association of Machinists and Aerospace
Workers, Lodge 962, the Canadian
Merchant Service Guild, the B.C.
Federation of Labour, and the Vancouver
Trades and Labour Council.
The material donated by the UFAWU
includes executive board minutes,
correspondence files, negotiations, briefs
and reports on various topics, lists of
members, photographs and sound
recordings. Also in the records is
information about the union's involvement
in issues such as air safety, conservation of
fish and natural resources and opposition
to nuclear testing. The union will continue
to transfer at regular intervals to UBC any
files that become inactive and are deemed
to be of historic value.
All material from the UFAWU will be
open to researchers and other members of
the public who wish to view the records,
with the exception of the general executive
board minutes, which are restricted for a
20-year period.
"The restriction of portions of material
isn't unusual," says Mr. Brandak, "since a
lot of the information in the minutes
relates to projects that are currently being
carried out. Researchers can gain access to
the minutes, however, if they obtain
written permission from the president of
the UFAWU or a designate.
"The acquisition by Special Collections
of the UFAWU records and those of other
organizations is valuable for two reasons,"
adds Mr. Brandak. "Not only do they
provide important information about
B.C.'s resources and industries individually,
but they present a historical view of the
province as a whole." UBC Reports September 22, 1982
Keeping fit is a serious business in China
Dr. Eric Broom, as associate professor of
comparative sport studies in UBC's School
of Physical Educrt'nn and Recreation,
conducted a three-week study program of
sport and recreational facilities and
practices in China this summer.
The study was arranged in conjunction
with UBC's Directed Study Abroad
Program and included professional and
cultural visits in Beijing, Xian, Shanghai
and surrounding areas.
Dr. Broom spoke with UBC Reports
about some of his impressions of sport and
recreation in China:
"In China, health, physical culture and
sport are regarded as interdependent
components of an overall system, in similar
fashion to the Soviet system upon which it
is modelled.
"Chairman Mao's dictum, 'Promote
physical culture; build up the people's
health' is applied at all stages of the life
cycle. In the school system, mass
calisthenics for the total school population
are performed daily before school starts, in
addition to regular physical education
classes. Workers have exercise breaks twice
a day in offices, factories and fields. Most
in evidence are the daily exercise sessions
undertaken by a large proportion of the
adult population either as individuals or in
"This latter phenomenon may be seen
Dr. Broom's trip to China this summer included a cultural insit to the Qin Shi Huan Mausoleum, which was built more than
2,000 years ago. The mausoleum was only recently opened to Western visitors.
Light without heat carried via pipe
Lome Whitehead, a research associate in
UBC's physics department, has developed a
system of lighting that will increase safety
in hazardous work areas by bringing light
into the area through a reflective pipe.
His light pipe,' which is based on a
principle of physics called "total internal
reflection," allows light from a source in
one area to move through the pipe into
another area, where wiring and heat from
Program breadth to be
looked at by Senate
An ad hoc committee of Senate is going
to look at UBC's undergraduate degree
programs to make sure that they are broad
enough in scope.
This was decided by Senate at its
meeting Sept. 15, on a motion of Dr. Peter
Suedfeld, head of the Department of
In the preamble to his motion, Dr.
Suedfeld said the University has an
obligation to ensure that its graduates have
the fundamentals of a liberal education
gained by exposure to a broad range of
disciplines and academic subjects. He said
there is no mechanism now to ensure that
majors and honors programs require an
adequate degree of such breadth.
Carried almost unanimously was a
motion that an ad hoc committee of Senate
be "requested to enquire into and draw up
recommendations as to minimum breadth
requirements in the pre-baccalaureate
programs of the University, and to report
to Senate concerning their
Chancellor J.V. Clyne, who spoke in
support, said there tended today to be too
much emphasis on job training and not
enough on scholarship. He said the person
with a good general education was the
person most useful to society.
A second motion by Dr. Suedfeld,
however, was defeated. This called for the
Senate Curriculum Committee to suspend
approval of new programs or major
program changes pending the acceptance
of recommendations as to minimal breadth
against this second motion, basically
because it would be some time before the
ad hoc committee could report to Senate
upon recommended minimum
requirements, which could mean new
programs might be held up for a long
period of time. Dean Cyril Finnegan
(Science) noted that a joint Arts and
Science program in meteorology would be
ready for presentation to the Universities
Council in January; under the second
motion the program would be delayed for
at least a year.
President Douglas Kenny, Senate
chairman, urged the nominating
committee to name members of the ad hoc
committee as quickly as possible, and he
asked that committee to carry out its work
as quickly as possible.
Open House planned
by Health Service
A note to all students on campus who
are accident prone or just plain curious.
UBC's Student Health Service, located in
Room M334 of the acute care unit, Health
Sciences Centre Hospital, is holding an
open house on Wednesday, Sept. 29.
The physicians, nurses and support staff
who operate the Student Health Service
will be on hand from 6 to 8 p.m. to show

a light source may not be wanted.
Light from any conventional source (Mr.
Whitehead uses a 2,500-watt bulb) shines
into one end of the pipe, and is reflected
along its entire length. The pipe is a
rectangular tube about 20 centimetres
square made of commercial grade
plexiglass a few millimetres thick.
"The plexiglass is molded on its outside
surface with a series of corrugated prisms,"
says Mr. Whitehead. "It's these prisms that
provide the total internal reflection."
Theoretically, the reflection could be
100 per cent, but because of scratches and
other imperfections on the surface of the
plexiglass, about 92 per cent of the light is
reflected with each bounce.
Mr. Whitehead's pipe has many
potential applications. One of the main
markets for the invention will be office
"We've done some cost comparisons with
conventional forms of lighting and we
come out looking pretty good," says Mr.
Whitehead. "The maintenance costs are
lower with the light pipe, and because the
pipe doesn't emit heat, the cost of air
conditioning is also lower."
Mr. Whitehead's system will be installed
in the atria of the new Insurance
Corporation of B.C. building under
construction in North Vancouver.
The light pipe can also be used in
operating rooms, in areas with high ceilings
where light bulbs are awkward to reach,
and even for 'mood lighting' in restaurants,
where the light can be easily changed from
white to a wide variety of shades using an
inexpensive filter.
Mr. Whitehead's invention took first
place in the innovation category at a U.S.
lighting competition last month. He
received the Edwin Guth Memorial
Lighting Design Special Citation at the
Lighting Design Awards of the
Illuminating Engineering Society in
Atlanta, Georgia.

result in a major re-alignment of world
sporting power.
"In 1981 and 1982 Chinese athletes have
won all seven titles in the woild table

volleyball world title; won three titles at
the World Cup diving championships; won
four out of five events in the first world

700,000 laborers and craftsmen over a
fifty-year period and is guarded by
thousands of life-size clay warriors. On the
death of the Emperor 10,000 craftsmen
were buried alive to prevent their skills
being used elsewhere."
While in China, Dr. Broom met with the
vice-president of the All-China Sports
Federation and the director of the National

discussed were competitions between
Chinese and Canadian teams, enrolment of

of UBC becoming a training base for
Chinese teams immediately prior to the

UBC diggers find gold in tomb
Few things in history have fired the
human imagination more than gold.
The ancients attributed magical
properties to it, medieval alchemists
attempted to create gold out of baser
metals, it was a major spur in the first
European explorations of the Western
Hemisphere and the gold rushes of the
19th century gave rise to incredible tales of
human endurance and hardship.
A little of the excitement that a gold
discovery can engender was experienced
this past summer by a UBC team of
excavators, who for more than a decade
have been working at a site on the south
coast of Turkey with the aim of recreating
the history and daily life of the town of
Anemurium, which flourished in the third
and fourth centuries AD.
The gold discovery took place in June
during the excavation of the last of the
four churches being investigated on the
site. Prof. James Russell of UBC's
Department of Classics and director of the
project says there's good reason to believe
that the building was the cathedral church
of the town and was destroyed in an
earthquake about the end of the sixth
When much of the rubble that had
fallen in on the main part of the church
was removed, the excavators found in one
"corner of the building a tomb about one
metre high resting on the church floor.
Workmen began the laborious job of sifting
the contents of the tomb for artifacts and
skeletal remains.
On the lowest level of the tomb, gold
objects started to appear. In less than a
day, a total of 34 items had been found
— a pair of earrings and 32 beads, crosses
and plaques which had originally been
attached to fabric of gold thread to form a
collar or necklace which decorated the first
person buried in the tomb.
"It really is exciting to see gold objects
appear during the sifting process," Prof.
Russell said. "Most metal objects found on
ancient sites are corroded or encrusted with
rust, but gold comes up gleaming. All
that's needed is a light brushing to restore
its original brilliance."
One of the mysteries attached to the
tomb in which the gold was found is the
fact that the excavators found the remains
of as many as 12 other bodies in it. There
were at least four bodies on the lowest level
of the tomb, including the one which was
decorated with the gold necklace, and
some eight other bodies on top of the
original burial.
"Multiple burials are not at all common
in this period in this part of the world,"
said Prof. Russell, "and I can't even hazard
a guess as to why there were successive
burials in the same tomb.
"I have no doubt that the person who
wore the collar with the gold objects
attached was a Christian because of the
grave's location in the church and from the
decoration of the jewellery with crosses and
other Christian motifs."
UBC archeologists discovered these 32 gold objects in June in a tomb in an
ancient church they were excavating on the south coast of Turkey. The objects,
15 gold beads, 10 open-work crosses and seven plaques with motifs of dolphins
and grapes, have been arranged in the way in which they might have been sewn
on a collar or necklace of gold thread that decorated the first person buried in
the tomb.
5,000 coming to conference
Prof. James Russell, whose work as the
leader of a major UBC archeological
project in Turkey is described on this page,
is on leave of absence from teaching duties
in the Department of Classics this year to
organize a major academic conference at
UBC in 1983.
He's been appointed co-ordinator of the
annual Learned Societies Conference,
which will bring together some 5,000
Canadian university teachers and other
interested persons representing more than
60 academic disciplines, primarily in the
Faculties of Arts, Education, Law and
Commerce and Business Administration.
Almost every major UBC building as well
as all campus residence accommodation
has been reserved for the meetings, which
begin on May 29 and continue until June
8, 1983.
Not all the academic organizations will
meet at the same time during that period,
however. Each will meet for periods
ranging from two to four days.
A national planning meeting for the
conference scheduled for Oct. 7 and 8 will
bring together the program chairpersons
and local UBC representatives for each of
the societies taking part in the 1983
conference. The conference business
meeting is scheduled for 9 a.m. on Oct. 8
in UBC's Asian Centre.
Prof. Russell has an office (Room 205) in
the old Home Economics Building, which
has temporarily been renamed the Physics-
Chemistry Annex, at the corner of
University Boulevard and East Mall. His
telephone number is 228-3422.
James Russell
Paradoxically, the gold objects will be of
little value in furthering the main objective
of the archeological team, which is to
recreate the history of Anemurium from
the first through the seven centuries AD.
"There's a popular misconception that
modern archeologists set out to find gold
and other valuable objects," Prof. Russell
said. "The reality is that if one wants to
reconstruct the history of a town like
Anemurium, it's the humble objects like
lamps, pots, copper coins and belt buckles
that are used for accurate dating, first
because there is an adequate number of
samples of each of these artifacts and,
second, because changes in style and
decoration permit us to assign each to a
specific period of time.
"On the other hand, valuables like the
gold objects we found are unique. They
were made for a specific individual at a
specific point in time. We'll never be able
to pinpoint when the gold objects were
made because we are unlikely to find other
closely similar examples for purposes of
After more than a decade of work on the
site, the team has excavated a
representative selection of buildings and
tombs and is in a position to begin
recreating the history of the city, which at
its height housed some 10,000 people in
the fourth century.
The one remaining major task on the
site is the consolidation and preservation of
floor mosaics and tomb paintings, for
which Prof. Russell said he hopes for the
collaboration of the Turkish Department of
About a dozen Canadian and European
scholars will contribute material on the
history of the city in the form of
monographs that will appear over the next
few years. Prof. Russell feels the final
product will be a major contribution to the
archeology and history of the period.
"A lot of scholarly effort has been put
into the archeology of the classical Greek
period on the one hand and the high
Roman empire period on the other," he
said. "The later period we are working in
has been rather neglected; so our work
should fill a major gap in the archeology of
this period and this region."
Already the outlines of the city's history
are forming in Prof. Russell's mind. From
a thriving commercial and cultural centre
in the third and fourth centuries, the city
gradually deteriorated over a period of
some 200 years until by about 600 AD the
aqueducts which had supplied the city and
its baths with water were no longer
operating and the few remaining
inhabitants were again drawing water from
"It's quite clear that when the Arabs
expanded on the perimeter of the
Mediterannean basin in the seventh
century, they were not taking over a
prosperous or vigorous society," Prof.
Russell said. "By that time, Anemurium
was on the skids, partly, I suspect, as the
result of plague and partly as the result of
an economic decline."
The discovery of gold at Anemurium led
. to a flurry of local and national interest in
Turkey during the summer. Local
authorities placed a 24-hour armed guard
on the site after the discovery, and
members of the team found theriiselves
being interviewed by reporters from
national newspapers and radio stations.
And the discovery had one other
immediate and positive benefit. Shortly
after the gold was found, the site was
visited by a three-star general from the
Turkish air force, who was conducting an
inspection nearby.
After Prof. Russell had given him a tour
of the ancient city and shown him the gold
objects, the general remarked that the
three kilometres of road leading to the site
were in very bad shape.
The next day, Prof. Russell said, an
army of workmen, trucks, bulldozers and
other machinery appeared and in quick
time paved the bumpy road leading to the
excavation site. UBC Reports September 22, 1982
Service comes first at International House
Off the top of your head, name 10
services available at UBC's International
Well, how about five?
If you really don't have a clear idea
about what International House does,
you're probably not alone. Director Rorri
McBlane says that although International
House has been operating on campus for
well over 20 years now, a lot of people
aren't aware of its many functions.
"Most people think of us in association
with the recreational activities we organize,
but we are primarily a service-oriented
organization," says Mr. McBlane. "Our
first responsibility is to provide help and
guidance to international students, and
social and recreational activities derive
from that."
Help for the students begins even before
they arrive at the University. When foreign
students apply to UBC, International
House sends them a package of
information on topics ranging from
housing in Vancouver, visas and other
documents they will need, work permits,
and information about the University itself.
"I think if a university accepts foreign
students, as UBC does, it also has to accept
the responsibility for making the transition
into their new environment easier, and
provide continuing support," says Mr.
International House provides
transportation from the airport for new
students, accommodation for the first few
nights and help finding permanent
housing. During the last week of August,
an orientation program is run to acquaint
foreign students with the UBC campus and
its services.
"We try to get the students as settled in
as possible before the school year begins,"
Mr. McBlane says. "Foreign students really
don't have any more problems than
Canadian students, but what problems they
do have are unique. They have to deal
with such things as visa and work permit
restrictions, and possibly a different
educational system, which can be a bit
confusing when you're also trying to adapt
to a new culture.
"Even if their problems can't be taken
care of out of our office, we can refer them
to agencies both on and off campus that
can help. But we try to focus on preventing
problems rather than just solving them."
International House isn't just for foreign
students, however. Its 900-person
membership consists of students, faculty
and staff from UBC and members of the
community as well as international
International House organizes activities
such as language nights, where various
languages are spoken and practised in an
informal setting, cultural music and dance
events, dinners, sports programs, camping
trips and a wide range of other recreational
activities designed to bring Canadians and
students of other cultures together.
Also sponsored through International
House are such services as the Language
Bank, which provides translation assistance
in over 50 languages and dialects. People
registered in the Language Bank provide
their time at no cost, for situations such as
court appearances or the translation of
important documents.
The Work and Study Abroad
Information Library, another International
House service, provides information about
opportunities for students to participate in
both short and long term programs
overseas. In addition, International House
facilitates the activities of CUSO, WUSC,
Canadian Crossroads International and
other volunteer organizations and
Or if you're interested in knowing what
is happening with foreign students in other
universities, International House keeps in
close communication with organizations
involved with foreign students across
Canada and the United States, through
membership in the Canadian Bureau for
International Education and the National
Association for Foreign Student Affairs.
It's a pretty impressive list of programs
and activities for an organization with only
three staff members, including the
"We wouldn't be able to keep everything
running without the help we get from
volunteers from the community and UBC,"
says Mr. McBlane. "And my staff
members, Grace Allen and Dan
Kravinchuk, do an incredible amount of
But McBlane stresses that International
House isn't just a  shelter' for foreign
students. "We do our best to give them
help if they need it when they arrive and if
problems arise later, but our goal is for
them to fit in as easily as possible with
other students on campus.
"If a student we've helped comes in to
say hello, but is too busy to stay because he
or she has plans somewhere else on
campus, we feel we've done our job."

Science in Society theme
of Pugwash lecture series
The Student Pugwash Association at
UBC has organized a series of free public
lectures on the environment, under the
general title "Science in Society: The
Setting of Standards."
The 11-lecture series begins Sept. 28 and
the final talk is on March 29. All of the
lectures are on Tuesdays at 12:30 p.m. in
Lecture Hall 3 of the Woodward
Instructional Resources Centre.
The lectures will examine the way
environmental pollutants or suspected
carcinogens are regulated, the political and
economic forces influencing these
standards, and the impact standards have
had on the public.
Andre Sobolewski, who is working on his
doctoral degree in biology at UBC, is one
of the persons behind the lecture series.
Mr. Sobolewski said standards vary from
country to country, sometimes by
incredible margins.

Long career
in nursing
Miss Margaret Street, an associate
professor emerita of Nursing at UBC, was
one of 62 Canadians appointed last month
to the Order of Canada, this country's
highest distinction, for recognition of
achievement and service to the nation.
Miss Street, who was named a Member
of the Order, is among six B.C. residents
appointed. She will receive her decoration
at Rideau Hall in Ottawa this fall.
Miss Street first taught in UBC's School
of Nursing in 1952-53, and after serving as
associate director of nursing at the Calgary
General Hospital for eight years returned
to UBC and resumed teaching in 1961.
Born in Toronto, Miss Street received a
Bachelor of Arts degree from the
University of Manitoba in 1928, then
attended the Provincial Normal School in
Winnipeg. She taught in various high
schools in Manitoba until she turned to the
field of nursing in the 1930's. She
graduated from the Royal Victoria
Hospital School of Nursing in Montreal
and then took a Diploma in Teaching and
Supervision from the McGill University
School of Nursing in 1942. She also has a
Master of Science degree from Boston
In addition to her work in nursing
education, Miss Street served as executive
secretary of both the Manitoba and
Quebec provincial nursing associations and
as president of the Alberta Association of
Registered Nurses.
Miss Street said her appointment to the
Order of Canada was a "totally unexpected
honor" and was due, in no small measure,
to the opportunities for service she received
at UBC and the support and assistance of
former colleagues. UBC Reports September 22, 1982

Senate approves
new department
The UBC Senate has approved
departmental status for Orthopedics.
A motion by dean of Medicine Dr.
William Webber "that the Division of
Orthopedics in the Department of Surgery
be changed to the Department of
Orthopedics in the Faculty of Medicine"
was approved by a large majority Sept. 15.
A number of student senators were
opposed to the change.
In response to student queries about
possible increased expense, Dean Webber
said he could not be specific but he felt the
new department could be expected to ask
for one additional faculty member and
increased secretarial staff.
President Douglas Kenny, Senate
chairman, pointed out that Senate's direct
responsibility was for the academic
implications of such a change. He
emphasized that the proposal now would
have to go to the Board of Governors,
which would consider economic aspects.
