Frustrating Void Filled by
Determined Law Students
UBC Reports Staff Writer
A determined group of UBC Law students proved
over the summer months that it is possible to fill the
frustrating void between citizens concerned about pollution, and government bureaucracies with the power,
but not always the inclination, to do something about
In fact, the B.C. Environmental Law Centre succeeded so well in one of its legal battles — an action to
prevent construction of a lakeside motel near Celista,
on Shuswap Lake, because of potential sewage pollution of the lake — that it established a precedent that
could render sewage disposal facilities in many B.C.
lakeside cottages and homes illegal under the existing
provincial Health Act.
Residents of Celista — a small community on the
north shore of Shuswap Lake — contacted the Centre, a
Vancouver-based group of six Law students, five from
UBC and one from the University of Montreal, which
was set up last spring to provide information and legal
advice to residents concerned about environmental
Mr. Joe Bellows, a UBC Law Faculty graduate who
manned the Centre, said the Celista residents had been
completely frustrated at every turn. They had bombarded the provincial Department of Health with letters, talked with regional health officers, held public
meetings and even written letters to Premier David
"They were protesting the fact that this motel had
been granted a permit by the North Okanagan Health
Unit to install a septic tank system which the residents
believed contravened the provincial Health Act," he
Mr. Bellows travelled to Celista, met with the residents, and returned to Vancouver to prepare a brief in
support of their case. This brief was then used as the
basis for a court action by the residents. The result was
a court restraining order against the development and a
fine against the motel owner for violating the Health
"Without going into all of the details, the residents
argued that the septic tank system, as approved, would
pollute the lake at high water. The health officials had
established the high-water mark on a 15-year average,
while the residents maintained that high water should
be based on the 1972 flood level, which was considerably higher than the average agreed on," Mr. Bellows
The decision is now under appeal, but if it is upheld
it would mean that hundreds of lakeshore properties
could be in violation of health regulations. "There is no
doubt that we caused considerable excitement in the
provincial Department of Health," added Mr. Bellows.
Dubbed   "eco-guerrillas"   by   Vancouver's   news
papers, the students prefer to look upon themselves as
providing an important public service rather than conducting harassment tactics against bureaucracy.
"In many cases, people with complaints to make are
completely confused by overlapping responsibilities in
municipal departments," said third-year Law student
Mr. Eric Kagna. "They are shuffled from one office to
another and finally turn to us as a last resort.
"Many of the problems that we get can be handled
with phone calls or letters. Others take more time,
including personal interviews and on-the-spot investigations. We also worked closely with anti-pollution
groups such as SPEC and the Sierra Club."
Mr. Bellows said the students have dealt with complaints covering virtually every aspect of pollution,
with the majority of serious complaints coming from
rural areas not governed by by-laws that have been established in built-up areas.
"If someone in the Greater Vancouver area called to
complain about burning garbage, or excessive noise, or
evidence of water pollution, we could usually refer to a
municipal by-law that was being contravened and take
steps to rectify the problem. But unorganized rural
areas are a different thing entirely. People can be dumping garbage in lakes, diverting streams, felling trees and
doing a variety of things that upset the ecological balance with relative impunity, unless enough people get
together to complain. Often the offenders don't even
know they are breaking any law."
Miss Mary-Ann Cummings, a second-year Law student at UBC, said she is helping' the residents of
Hawkins Lake, near 100-Mile House, to establish a ratepayers' association after repeated attempts by the residents of the area to get a ban on motorboats on the
"They went to the regional board for assistance but
got nowhere and when they approached the provincial
Department of Recreation and Conservation, they
were told that it was a local issue. They hope that by
forming a ratepayers' group they will have some clout,
particularly with the local politicians who always seem
to be more sensitive to the needs of groups than individuals," she said.
In addition to helping people with environmental
problems, the students prepared informational materials on environmental concerns and their legal remedies,
did public service announcements over a Vancouver
radio station and prepared a brief in conjunction with
the Environmental Sub-Section of the Canadian Bar
Association for presentation to the B.C. Law Reform
"The brief," said Mr. Bellows, "dealt with the rights
of a citizen with regard to suing 'in public nuisance.'
Many pollution problems, because they affect the community at large, are classified as a public nuisance, but
only the attorney-general can sue on the basis of public
nuisance and, historically, he never does so.
"An individual is barred from suing unless he can
show damage over and above the damage caused to the
community at large. We would like to see the removal
of the standing requirement that an individual has to
show special damage before initiating proceedings."
The B.C. Environmental Law Centre was funded by
$24,600 in grants from the provincial government, the
federal Opportunities for Youth program and Labatt
Breweries of Canada Ltd. The students each received
$600 a month in salary.
Mr. Bellows said the Centre ended the summer with
so much unfinished business that he intends to stay on
through the winter. "Our present funding will carry us
through until next June, but we plan to be very aggressive in seeking further funding so that we can operate
on an expanded basis next summer."
He also hopes to convene a conference in Vancouver
during the coming year to bring together representatives from law schools across Canada to discuss the
possibility of setting up similar centres in their provinces. Snoopy poster in the cubicle of a UBC dental student helped to relax one of the more than 1,100

Faculty of Dentistry, was supported by a grant from the provincial Department of Health. Picture

Everybody Benefits from
Summer Dental Program
UBC Reports Staff Writer
"Thank you very much for fixing my teeth up for
me. You did a great job and it sure beats going to a real
With gratitude, and a touch of unconscious irony,
Brenda Brown, one of the 1,130 school children who
received dental treatment at the University of B.C.'s
Faculty of Dentistry this summer, begins her thank-
you note to the UBC dental students who took part in
the program.
The treatment, free: of charge, was made possible
through a grant from the provincial government.
Health Minister Dennis Cocke agreed to the program
put forward by Dean S. Wah Leung, head of UBC's
Faculty of Dentistry.
The dental clinic, which ran from May 30 to Aug.
16, treated children and adolescents who ranged in age
from 5 to 19. Twenty-one trainees from the New Haven
Correctional Centre in Burnaby were also treated at the
The school children were chosen by public health
dental officials in their school district.
Providing treatment were 23 dental students entering their fourth and final year, 14 dental students entering their third year, and four students entering the second and final year of the dental hygiene program.
Benefiting from the program were the children and
their parents, UBC students and the University itself.
About 15 per cent of the children treated had never
seen a dentist before, said Dean Leung, and about 20
per cent saw a dentist regularly. The remainder, by far
the majority, had only gone to a dentist when they
needed emergency treatment.
"These figures indicated," Dean Leung said, "that
the program did what it was set up to do — reach into
the community and treat patients who might otherwise
have gone without routine dental care."
Dean Leung said every patient received an equal
amount of preventive and treatment care. Each patient
came for a three-hour session, spending 90 minutes in
the chair and 90 minutes receiving lectures, demonstrations, periodontal treatment and oral hygiene instruction.
"We estimate very conservatively in our preliminary
calculations that we provided restorative treatment
worth about $171,058," Dean Leung said. "Preventive
and periodontal treatment was worth about $89,000
for a total benefit of about $260,000.
"Since the program cost approximately $95,000,
we think it has shown a good return."
UBC benefited from the program by keeping its dental facilities in use during the summer months. The
dental and dental hygiene students benefited by being
exposed to more experience than they would otherwise
have had.
Fourth-year dental student Paul Cavaghan said the
summer program exposed him to the kind of dental
problems that a practicing dentist would encounter in
community practice.
Mr. Cavaghan said the patients seen by dental students during UBC's Winter Session are carefully selected. The summer patients, he added, had the kind of
problems that would be encountered in practice.
He also felt students learned to work quickly while
maintaining standards of treatment.
He said the money — $500 a month for a dental
student entering his fourth and final year — "wasn't
that hot, but the hours were good and the experience
was the main thing."
One of Mr. Cavaghan's patients was Brenda Brown,
whose letter says:
"I learned a lot of things from going there, especially
when I saw those ugly-looking teeth on the film I saw.
"Most of all I want to thank Paul Cavaghan, my
dentist, and Bruce ? (Henderson), my hygiene dentist.
Paul is a great carver and Bruce is a lot of fun. Thanks

They Learned Things Never
Encountered in Classroom
UBC Reports Staff Writer
Altruism wasn't the sole motivation for participation in the Small Business Assistance Program operated
in the summer of 1974 by graduate students in UBC's
Faculty of Commerce and Business Administration.
The students, who provided free marketing and
financial advice, probably benefited from the experience as much as the small businesses they helped, according to Mr. Rob Harmer, one of the graduate students involved in the program.
"It gave students a real insight into the business
world — an insight you can never get from a textbook,"
he said.
The provincial government-sponsored program involved 12 Master of Business Administration students,
who were paid $150 a week to make their services available, without charge, to any business that qualified.
Mr. Harmer said 114 businesses applied for the students' services and 50 were helped.
"Our criteria to accept or reject an application were
that the company would have gross sales in the vicinity
of a million dollars, be Canadian-owned and operated,
and not normally in a position to afford professional
consulting services," Mr. Harmer said.
"The company would also have to present us with a
clearly-defined problem area to ensure that our consul-
4/UBC Reports/Sept. 25,1974
tants had the necessary qualifications to assist them."
Requests for assistance were followed up by an initial interview with one or more of the students. The
case was then examined in detail and a decision made
on whether the students were in a position to help.
Though three faculty members acted as advisors, the
students operated the program on their own. Some assignments lasted as long as two weeks, with the business
being provided with a detailed report outlining the
findings of the students.
"It was then up to the business to decide whether it
wanted to act on our advice," added Mr. Harmer. He
said enquiries covered three major areas —accounting,
finance apd marketing.
"A typical accounting problem would be a company
asking us to have a look at the way in which it was
handling its bookkeeping. Quite often we found that a
few relatively simple suggestions could be of real help
in improving their accounting procedures."
The group handled a variety of assignments in the
marketing field. One company, with two stores in different parts of the Lower Mainland, wanted to find out
why one was handling a far bigger volume of business
than the other, even though each was located in a built-
up area.
"We designed a questionnaire for the store that
wasn't doing so well, aimed at finding outwhattypeof
customers it was attracting, how they had been attracted to the store, and so on. We then used the results of
the questionnaire as the basis for recommended
changes in marketing techniques."
Another client, a carpet dealer, had four outlets,
each one operating independently. The owner decided
to centralize his operation so that he could buy in quantity, reduce wastage as a result of carpet cutting, and so
on. "He wanted some advice from us as to how he
should go about centralizing," Mr. Harmer said.
"After a careful analysis of his operation we recommended a central location in Burnaby and that he computerize his operation. We even gave him information
on the type of computer that he should invest in."
One company retained the students to ascertain
whether it should go into a new product line. "We did
market research, found out the fixed costs, and recommended that the company avoid the proposed move."
The company accepted the students' advice and cancelled a planned $30,000 expenditure.
Mr. Hem Savia, one of the students who participated
in the program, said that while the businesses were
helped by the advice they received, the real winners
were the students themselves.
"We learned things and tackled problems that you
would never run into in the classroom," he said. "It is
all very well to sit in class and talk about the theory of
business administration, but things can be very different when it comes to practical application of the theories.
"One of the problems with our courses at the University is that most of our studies are applicable only to
large corporations. But many students will probably
have more to do with small businesses than large corporations after they graduate. So during the coming
year I will be looking to my instructors to take into
account the needs of small businesses."
Mr. Savia said he also learned during the summer
that while many businesses know that they have a problem, they have great difficulty identifying exactly what
that problem is. "We found that one of our main functions was first identifying the problem before making a
start on trying to find a solution."
Representatives of businesses that utilized the services of the students during the summer were enthusiastic about the program.
Mr. Roy Henderson, of Total Electronics in Vancouver, took the time to write a letter to the students.
"... they conducted themselves in a professional manner and completely understood the task that was set
before them. Their report was what we had asked for
and will be of value to us..."
Mrs. Anne Hume of the Incorporation Guide Centre, Burnaby, said her firm's problem was in the area of
marketing. "I was very pleased with the job that the
students did. They came up with some new approaches
and ideas and we will be incorporating a number of the
things that they suggested."
Said another businessman: "They understood what
we wanted of them and they asked the right questions.
I am not sure that we agreed with all of the recommendations that they made, but we asked for their opinion
and that was what we got. I'm impressed with the calibre of the students in the Faculty."
Mr. Harmer said a report on the program, which cost
a total of $28,800 in salaries and other expenses, has
been submitted to the provincial government, "and if
this year's success is any indication it will probably be
continued in years to come. I certainly hope so, because from the student's point of view, at least, it
makes us more critical of our own courses of study and,
I think, eminently more employable graduates." 55'0 Senior Citizens: Took' Free

hbaoxijiiiaei. Dean of Arts Dr. Douglas Kenny, pictured at right,
knows he faces a tough job next year when he succeeds
Dr. Walter H. Gage as President of UBC. In the
article beginning below by Vaughn Palmer, a fourth-year
Arts student at UBC, Dean Kenny explains that he took
the job because he has always had a commitment to
education in general and to UBC in particular.
Pho to by Jim Banham.
Will Take UBC's Case
To the Outside World
We've heard how it's impossible to run a university.
As part of a daily routine, the man or woman in the top
administrative post must confront the problems of students, faculty, staff, alumni, the community and government.
In the case of UBC there are also the interests of the
new Universities Council and the proposed faculty union.
And then there's the task of administering the budget,
handling the business end of things, keeping up academic
standards - the list of problems appears endless.
So anyone would be crazy to take on the job of university president, right?
Not so, says Dean Douglas T. Kenny, appointed on
June 19 to succeed Dr. Waiter Gage as President of UBC
when the latter retires on June 30,1975.
Not that the 51-year-old Arts dean thinks the job is
_jasy. -       '
He knows it is a tough, tough job that could take up the
better part of five years of his life when he takes over next
But he believes it is also straightforward.
"If you'll accept the two primary goals of the university - to teach and to further research — and if you keep
your eye on those two goals, I don't think you'll find
yourself in conflict with faculty, students, community,
non-academic staff, or problems in general."
A pat solution?
Not at all. Dean Kenny treats those two goals - teaching and research — as a touchstone, building blocks on
which he has constructed his philosophy of university
Kenny presents himself as an elemental thinker, a classic academic who says, "f am what my ideas are."
He is not interested in discussing how his performance
as President will relate to his past {a Victoria native, he
attended Victoria College, UBC, the University of Washington and taught at Harvard), his career (as a psychologist
v.ho specializes in personality and learning and patterns of
ci.::j '.velopment), or his close family life (a widower,
Dnar ' ., *ny has brought up his two teenage children since
their mc'^r died several years ago).
"The tact that I'm a psychologist isn't relevant," he
says. "For example, I've been interested in what kind of
child-rearing practices will produce a certain kind of child.
"That is not necessarily helpful, nor is it a hindrance, to
the job (of President).
"Why did I become a psychologist? One could search
out complex reasons for that, but I guess I've just been
fascinated with what causes human behavior.
"You see, as long as one understands the nature of the
university, then the exact discipline one comes from is
"I certainly don't accept the idea that someone from
the liberal arts is at a disadvantage in understanding the
While playing down the importance of his profession.
Dean Kenny also defies attempts to pin a label on him,
unless one can call self-proclaimed "UBC-ism" a party
"In my younger days a lot of people viewed me as left
wing," he says.
"I suppose I'ma progressive, but the concept of liberal-
conservative and the like doesn't make a great deal of sense
when you're looking at the real goals of the University,
because knowledge is essentially apolitical.
"The University, this University, is a very precious institution in our society because it is the generation of new
ideas that keeps our society going.
"I took the job as President of UBC because I have
always had a commitment to education.
"Also, it may sound corny, but I do have a commitment to UBC. I've always been willing to do anything this
University has asked. It is, in part, paying back a debt."
Dean Kenny's goals for his five-year term of office as
President of UBC are a projection of his basic philosophy
of higher education:
"I'd like to think our faculty and the level of scholarship we can offer will improve, and that the University will
also be reaching a wider sector of society."
Building on this, he continues:
"The University has served the community - in fact, a
lot more than some people suspect — but there is always
room for improvement.
"ii we couiu lino a way gt increasing trie jiuiiiLi&r «»
evening classes, of seminars and public talks, that's one
thing we should be doing.
i        - '
"And if there are financial factors inhibiting a person
coming to UBC, then they should certainly be removed. I
have always welcomed the decreasing fraction that student tuition fees contribute to the total budget of the
"Also, we should play down the importance of getting
a degree. Rather, what may be required are certain pockets
of broad learning experience that may not lead to adegree
but are of service to the learner." ^	
Dean Kenny would also like to see an evening part-time
program equal in quality to regular daytime course offerings but admits that "unfortunately, this is going to be an
expensive operation.
"We may not be able to mount every program within
the University in the evenings. So for a long time"? have
to mount selected programs leading to degrees orrupart-
time basis."
Another hope of Dean Kenny's is that he can build
agreement on goals for the '70s among all the interests,that
make up the University.
"Hopefully we can achieve consensus on some of the
major academic goals that this  University st*"K be
striving for.
~- r-
'Of course, the ultimate responsibility for re^OvTfllies ■
with the Senate," he says, adding, "It ought not to be done
unless all the Faculties agree."
During his term as head -A the Arts Faculty, Dean
' Kenny gained a reputation as a staunch defender of faculty rights, a role that got him into hot water wiiv«jrne
student leaders. ■ ;____.,
"I've been called autocratic, but I don't agree with that.
I thjnk the dean of Arts is a fair target for simplification
because he personifies the Faculty.
"One has to keep in mind that a dean in a modern
university can't line up 500 faculty members^ ' say
.'Look, vote for me'." ^
As a result, in such cases as last year's dispufe">M*rthe
degree of student representation to be permitted on faculties and Faculty committees, a dean will often find himself
defending a decision different from what he rnigntnavo
preferred personally, says Dean Kenny.
"But I'm not going to undercut my faculty me^ >;rs,"
he maintains. "Once they recommend something Jj>tand
back of them."
But Dean Kenny also thinks such cases are rare because
"generally, student and faculty interests are the same."
Nonetheless, the President-designate says he pljns to
temper his outlook as a, dean with a "slightly different
- "A university president not only has an interest in the
faculty, he has an interest in the students, the non-
academic staff, and in university obligations to thecom-
"This coming year is a good time for me to shake the
perspective I have as dean and try to gather a wider one."
Dean Kenny also sees his fundamental belief in basic
University goals acting as a compass when he faces the task
of obtaining adequate operating and capital grants for the
By the time he assumes office as President, Dean Kenny
will have to deal with the provincial government through
the new Universities Council, the 11-member body
created by the new Universities Act, which is empowered
to co-ordinate the development of B.C.'s public universities and act as an intermediary between the universities
and the provincial government.
"The wide-ranging powers of the new council might
frighten some academics," he said, "but it doesn't frighten
me! If we are worth our salt we will be able to convince
that independent body of the value of what we are doing.
"Simply, if out case is good, they will give us what we
want. Education costs are going up and I don't envision
them stabilizing.
"I hope we never see the day when we have to consider
raising student fees. If the government wants high-quality
universities, they are going to have to pay for them.
"Still, governments tend to reflect the basic feeling of
the people and there has been some backlash against higher education recently."
Which brings Dean Kenny to a dilemma: howto tell the
world what UBC wants.
When you get to know him you realize he's basically a
shy person, more used to the role of efficient administrator than public relations man.
"I never viewed the dean of Arts position as a political
one so I have never been concerned with what my relations
were with the downtown or campus press," he said,
"!'ve always felt people would ultimately judge me by
^flniai'   vtjdLuuin^iiaiicu gnu iiuw I  vcauMfMipisucu n.
    But he agrees that a successful President will have to sell'
his University'-- case to the outside world. So UBC's President-designate is going public.
'I see nnyself as becoming a public advocate of higher
education, yetting out and explaining to the people what it
is all about and why it is worthwhile in its own right.
"Yes, i see myself becoming much more of a public
And for a man who's used to getting things done quickly, quietly and through the proper channels, that confrontation may be the most difficult one of all.
Gifts as Statesman
d6 rlli lO   iGSi
It has been said of Prof, William Armstrong, deputy
president of UBC, that one of his strong suits is his
ability to bring people of varying interests together to
form new ventures.
Prof. Armstrong admits that his gifts as a statesman
will probably be put to their severest test in the months
ahead as chairman of the new Universities Council of
B.C., the body created by the new Universities Act
passed at the spring session of the B.C. Legislature.
The council will co-ordinate the development of
B.C.'s three public universities and will act as an intermediary between the universities and the provincial
The universities will, in future, submit their requests
for operating and capital grants to the 11-member
council rather than directly to the Minister of Education. The council will review and co-ordinate the budget requests, then transmit them to the minister together with its own recommendations on the amount
of money to be provided.
It will then divide the total sum provided by the
government and distribute it to the universities.
Among its many powers the council has the authority to demand from the universities short- and long-
term plans for their academic development. It has
the power to approve the establishment of new Faculties and programs for new degrees and to require the
universities to consult with one another to minimize
unnecessary duplication of Faculties and programs.
And it has the power to establish evaluation procedures for al I academic divisions of the universities.
The council, which Prof. Armstrong describes as "a
necessary appendage to the province's educational
system," will be "walking a very thin line" in carrying
out these functions while at the same time avoiding
suspicion that it is interfering with the autonomy of the
"One of the areas of greatest concern to me," he
said, "will be to ensure that we don't interfere internally any more than is absolutely necessary, while at the
same time using public funds efficiently to run the best
university system possible."
Prof. Armstrong, 58, will resign from UBC and assume his new position, a full-time appointment, as soon
as possible. Term of the appointment is three years.
Certainly, he brings impressive credentials to his
new role as chairman of the Universities Council.
Prof. Armstrong has been involved in the establishment of major scientific projects in Canada and abroad.
He played a key role in the formation of TRIUMF, the
$30-million cyclotron now nearing completion at UBC
and serves as chairman of the project's Board of Management.
Prof. Armstrong is chairman of the board of directors of the Canada-France-University of Hawaii project
to build a 144-inch telescope on the island of Hawaii,
which will give Canadian astronomers access to one of
the largest and best-situated telescopes in the world;
He is a member of the board of directors of
WESTAR, the consortium of Canadian universities interested in developing astronomical research on Mount
Kobau in the Okanagan. And he is a member of the
management council of the Western Canadian Universities Marine B iological Station (WCUMBS) at Bamfield
on the west coast of Vancouver I sland and a member of
the Council of UBC's Westwater Research Centre.
. His role in education and science policy has been at

Prof. Armstrong is currently a member of the board
of directors of the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada and was a member of the Committee on
University Governance set up by Education Minister
Eileen Dailly to advise her on the rewriting of the Universities Act..
A metallurgist, he has acted as consultant for many

States and Germany. He is a member of groups set up to
advise the provincial government on the establishment
of a copper smelter and a steel industry in B.C.

Senate Moves to
Implement Act
UBC's Senate has taken the first step leading to the
implementation of the new Universities Act as it applies to UBC.
At its Sept. 12, meeting, Senate approved the establishment of an eight-member committee to make
recommendations concerning elections to the reconstituted Board of Governors and Senate of the University.
The new Act empowers Senate "to make and publish all rules necessary ... in respect of nominations,
elections and voting...." The new Act also specifies
that the registrar of the University shall conduct all

Under the terms of the new Act the Board of Governors will be increased in size from 11 to 15 members,
including eight appointed by the provincial cabinet.
The balance of the Board will be made up of the
President, the Chanceiior, two faculty members elected
by the faculty, two students elected by the students,
and one person elected by and from the full-time employees of UBC who is not a faculty member.
The new Act also changes the composition of the
Senate, reducing UBC's from 99 to 79 members. Student representation on Senate will be increased from
12 to 17, but alumni representation will be cut, in
UBC's case, from 18 to 4 members. Commerce Dean Named Commission

be a re-creation of the Sanyo Electric Company's pavilion, one of the hits of Expo '70 in Osaka, Japan. Structural steel components of the pavilion were shipped to
Vancouver in 1971 as a gift from the people of Japan in
honor of B.C.'s Centennial.
The building of the Centre got under way this
spring, but was delayed because of a 15-week construction strike. Cost of the re-construction, originally estimated at $1.6 million, has risen to $3 million because
of inflation.
To date, $1.65 million has been raised through donations from the B.C. and federal governments in Canada and from sources in Japan. A fund-raising campaign
is now under way to collect the remaining $1.35 million to finish the building.
When completed, the Centre will house the University's 175,000-volume Asian Studies library, the most
comprehensive library of its kind in Canada and one of
the best in North America. I twill also house offices and
seminar rooms for faculty and graduate students in the
Department of Asian Studies and the Institute of Asian
and Slavonic Research.
The Centre will also contain a large performance hall
for theatrical and musical presentations and an area for
cultural displays.
Dr. Barrie Morrison, head of the Institute of Asian
and Slavonic Research, has described the Centre as
"Canada's contact-point for cultural, intellectual and
academic activity with East Asia." He said also that the
Centre will be an important contact-point between the
University, "as a keeper of the culture of the peoples in
East Asia, and Canadians who are from that part of the

UBC Reports/Sept. 25,1974/9 CEPEX Sinks Giant
Tubes in Island Inlet
Experiments have begun in the first of six enormous
"test tubes" to be placed in Saanich Inlet on Vancouver
Island as part of an international, five-year, $10-million
research project to find some of the long-term effects
of pollutants on life in the ocean.
The first test tube, 30 feet in diameter, was placed in
the water early in September. The mouth of the test
tube floats on the surface of the Inlet and the body of
the tube extends down from the surface 90 feet and
holds some 2,350 tons of water.
Installation of the first of the large test tubes marks
completion of the first year of work of the Controlled
Ecosystem Pollution Experiment (CEPEX).
Participating in CEPEX are the Skidaway Oceanography Institute of the University of Georgia; the Marine Laboratory of Aberdeen, Scotland; the Woods
Hole Oceanographic Institution of Massachusetts; the
Scripps Institution of Oceanography in California; and
the University of B.C.'s Institute of Oceanography.
Other agencies such as the Canada Department of
the Environment are participating.
Directing the project is a four-man committee made
up of Prof. T.R. Parsons of UBC's Institute of
Oceanography; Dr. D.W. Menzel of Skidaway, the
committee chairman; Dr. Richard Eppley of Scripps;
and Dr. John Steele of the Marine Laboratory.
Tests on the first of the large test tubes will
determine how it will stand up to conditions in the
Talks Consider
Policy Issues
The Westwater Research Centre at the University of
B.C. will present a series of 12 free public lectures on
controlling the rate and pattern of population and economic growth in Canada.
The lectures, supported by the Vancouver Foundation, will be given Mondays at 8:00 p.m. at the Vancouver Art Gallery. The first one is scheduled for Oct.
General purpose of the lectures is to help lay the
foundation for serious consideration of policy issues.
Behind the lectures is the assumption that action on the
problem of growth in Canada requires a basic understanding by the general public of the issues involved.
Among the questions touched upon will be:
Can the quality of the environment be maintained
without seriously slowing the rate of growth?
Since energy and other resources are limited, should
stabilization of the population and economy come
about gradually or rapidly?
Should Canada absorb some of the population
growth from other parts of the world?
If economic growth is slowed or stopped, how can
the aspirations of the poor be met?
If economic growth destines Canadians to spend a
major portion of their working time in tasks they find
uninteresting, is growth worthwhile?
How will slow or no growth affect regional disparities?

Inlet and how zooplankton and small fish react to the
enclosed environment of the tubes.
During the summer, experiments were carried out
on minute marine organisms trapped within six
one-quarter-scale test tubes in the Inlet, each
containing about 70 tons of water. Prof. Parsons said.
"The biological reaction of organisms in the water
to being enclosed in the one-quarter-scale containers
didn't affect their normal growth and reproduction,"
Prof. Parsons said.
"The general purpose of the experiments in the
one-quarter-scale models was to test which pollutants
should be selected for further experiments using the
large, full-scale containers."
"Copper, crude oil and cadmium were among the
pollutants added to the containers this summer. The
levels at which these pollutants were added were above
those occurring naturally in the Inlet but still well
below the concentrations known to cause any acute
effects on marine organisms.
"From our initial results it appears that small traces
of copper in the marine environment can alter the food
web of the sea. The alteration isn't in the total
production of organisms but in the type of organisms
which grow better in the presence of small traces of
Prof. Parsons said an analogy to the effect of the
copper on the marine environment would be if a field
of grass were changed into a grove of trees. The tree
growth may be as abundant as the grass but the growth
is of a different type.
"Hydrocarbons or crude oil," Prof. Parsons said,
"were also found to bring about changes in the food
web in the containers. Both hydrocarbons and copper
will be tested in the large containers next year."
He said the one-quarter-scale test tubes, designed by
Case Existological Laboratories of Victoria, have
performed well, even under severe wind conditions.
The large test tubes, made of clear plastic, will be
linked together in a honeycomb pattern and moored
away from sport fishing areas in the Inlet.
Prof. Parsons said no contamination of the natural
flora and fauna of the Inlet will result from the study.
"The concentrations will be non-lethal. The concentration of some substances will be higher than the
natural level in the water in the Inlet," he said. "We will
be adding zinc, for example, at concentrations 10 to
100 times the natural level in seawater.
"However, the final zinc concentration will still be
only one-tenth the concentration permitted by the
World Health Organization in drinking water supplies."
The project has been cleared by the federal Department of the Environment — which is also supplying
logistic support — and the B.C. Pollution Control
The U.S. National Science Foundation is funding
part of the project.
Dean Speaks
To Club Oct. 1
UBC's Faculty Women's Club will begin its 57th
consecutive year of campus activity on Oct. 1 when the
organization meets to hear an address by the new Dean
of Women, Dr. Margaret Fulton.
Membership in the club, which was founded in
1917, two years after UBC opened its doors, is open to
the wives of faculty members and to women members
of the UBC faculty. Membership currently numbers
between 300 and 400.
The Club holds six general meetings during the
Winter Session and members also take part in more
than 30 interest groups, including activities such as
hiking, nature study, foreign language conversation,
gardening, bridge, pottery and tennis.
Club members also assist at UBC's International
House and the Crane Library for blind and partially
sighted students and also distribute magazines for use
in campus residence reading rooms.
Contributions from club members support the Anne
Wesbrook Scholarship, awarded annually to a deserving
student; the Jubilee Loan Fund; and the Dean of
Women's Fund.
A brochure outlining the club's 1974-75 activities is
available from Mrs. Kay Farstad,the 1974-75 club president, at 738-6779, or Mrs. Cecile Dettwiler, the.club's
membership convenor, at 224-5501.
The Oct. 1 meeting will take place at 3:00 p.m. in
the lower lounge of the UBC Faculty Club.
Plight of
Figures compiled by Dr. Richard Spratley, UBC's Research Administrator, show that research funds awarded
to UBC faculty members increased 26 per cent in the five-
year period 1969-70 to 1973-74.
Unfortunately, said Dr. Spratley, the increase failed to
compensate for inflation, leaving researchers worse off in
1974 than at the end of the 1960s, the decade which saw
significant increases in the level of research support in
Canadian universities.
Dr. Spratley estimates that an  increase  in research
funds of the order of 35 per cent would have been necessary during this five-year period to keep pace with infla- »
"Instead," he said, "the plight of the individual researcher is worsening because increasing numbers of faculty members are competing for funds."
To put the actual 26-per-cent increase in perspective,
Dr. Spratley cited the following increases in price indices
compiled by Statistics Canada for the same five-year period: manufactured goods — up 41 per cent; chemical products — up 19 per cent; and average weekly salaries and
wages — up 33 per cent.
Dr. Spratley said that, on the average, 60 per cent of
research funds are spent on salaries, 30 per cent on equipment and supplies and the balance on travel, computing
and other expenses.
Researchers in the pure and applied sciences came
through the five-year period in better shape than researchers in other areas, as a result of a 30-per-cent increase in
National Research Council operating expenses.
During the same period, however, NRC's overall budget
increased by only 6 per cent, resulting in sacrifices in student scholarship and bursary programs.
Medical researchers face an increasingly critical situation, Dr. Spratley said. Funds awarded by the Medical
Research Council to UBC faculty members were approximately the same in 1973-74 as they were in 1969-70 and
private support for medical research has increased by only
a percentage point or two.
Grants from the federal government's Department of
Health and Welfare are up 20 per cent in the five-year
period, but these funds support only applied projects in
areas such as health care delivery and fail to aid basic
research in the health sciences.
Dr. Spratley said another trend evident in the five-year
period is a shift away from grants-in-aid to formal contractual arrangements by mission-oriented agencies of the federal government. Under federal policies, work done under
contract must be "relevant" to the goals of the agency
providing the funds and this has a "steering" effect on
university research, Dr. Spratley said.
He said the funds for contract research totalled more
than $2.2 million in 1973-74 and made up more than 15
per cent of UBC's total research funds.
The outlook for researchers is not bright. Dr. Spratley
said. "Although the federal Ministry of Science and Technology has worked out a massive reorganization of the
structures of granting agencies, no promises of increased
funding have been made."
At the same time, the so-called "make-or-buy" policy
of the federal government continues to encourage the contracting out of research while insisting that funds made
available on this basis be awarded to Canadian industrial

Fifty years have seen a lot of changes on the UBC campus, the Class of '24 discovered during
recent reunion. Highlights of campus tour Included visits to the Sedgewick Library, where
graduates heard a talk by Library head Mr. Ture Erickson, left above, and the Nitobe Memorial
Garden, below. Pictures by Ian Lindsay.
A Golden Year for '24
After half a century, there is a lot of catching up to
"The phone rang on Wednesday night and a voice
said: 'Murray, Murray Brink?' I said yes, and the voice
said: 'Murray, this is Carl Tolman'."
"Carl Tolman! I hadn't seen him in 50 years," Mr.
Brink recounts with an enthusiastic chuckle. "That's
the sort of thing that makes it all worthwile."
Mr. Brink (now a prominent Vancouver businessman) and Dr. Tolman (an internationally-known expert in earth sciences, now at Washington University in
St. Louis) were classmates in the UBC graduating class
of 1924. During the Sept. 5-8 weekend they had a
chance to reminisce over school days and find out what
each had been doing for the previous half-century.
The Alumni Association's Class of '24 reunion
brought together UBC grads from Eastern Canada, the
Eastern U.S., California, Washington State and many
points around British Columbia to meet with classmates who have remained in the Lower Mainland area.
Mr. Brink chaired the committee responsible for organizing the four-day event. Members included Mrs.
Betty Clyne, Mr. Fred Coffin, Mr. Al Napier, Miss
Myrtle Kievell, Mr. John Gibbard, Mr. John Burton,
Miss Dorothy Peck, Mrs. Lillian Greig, Mrs. Frances
Tucker and Dr. Jack Wilcox.
On Sept. 5 the women of the class got together for a
morning coffee party at the home of Mrs. Greig, and
i9/nnrnannrt.;<lmt on taiA
that evening there was a cocktail party for the class at
the home of Mr. and Mrs. J.V. Clyne.
A banquet at the Faculty Club on Sept. 6, attended
by more than 90 persons, was the major event of the
reunion. Members of the class who graduated in agriculture had a chance to get together with some of their
former teachers at a luncheon on Sept. 7, and that
evening sciencemen held a stag. On Sept. 7 Mr. Brink
hosted a picnic at his summer home in White Rock.
The weekend ended with a Sunday (Sept. 8) brunch
at Alumni Association headquarters at Cecil Green
Park. For a few minutes the grads turned the clock back
52 years as they watched a newsreel film of the Great
Trek of Oct. 28,1922. Then they departed for a tour of
today's UBC, with a look at the Nitobe Gardens, the
new Sedgewick Library and numerous buildings under
construction. They noted a considerable change from
the Fairview Shacks where they earned their degrees.
There are more reunions to come. A record turn-out ■
of old grads is expected for the Oct. 18 and 19 Reunion
Days weekend. The Classes of '39, '44 and '49 are dusting off their dancing shoes for the "Big Band" night at
the Commodore. Campus activities are planned for the
Classes of '29, '34, '49 Pharmacy, '54, '59 and '64.
Cecil Green Park will be the scene of hot toddy
parties and the start of the campus tours for all the
classes. For further information on any of the Reunion
Days events contact the Alumni office, 228-3313.
Dean Kenny
To Speak in
UBC's President-designate, Dean Douglas Kenny,
will begin putting his conviction about the need to better inform the community about UBC into practice this
fall with two speaking engagements in B.C.'s Interior.
The program is being sponsored by the UBC Alumni
Association's branches division.
On Friday, Oct. 25, Dean Kenny will address a luncheon at the Kelowna Golf and Country Club. He will
share the platform with Alma Mater Society President
Gordon Blankstein, who will talk about the student
scene at UBC.
The luncheon is open to the public and tickets at
$2.50 each may be obtained by phoning Mrs. H. Blaisat
762-2011 in Kelowna.
Plans are being made to have Dean Kenny visit Kamloops in November for another speaking engagement.
Details have yet to be completed and will be announced
As part of the Association's continuing branches
program, UBC zoologist Prof. David Suzuki will visit
Toronto on Nov. 1 to speak to alumni. Information:
David Papau (416) 362-4433 in Toronto
Also as part of the continuing program, UBC alumni
executive director Mr. Harry Franklin will address Vernon alumni on Oct. 13atthe Village Green Inn. He will
be accompanied by Dr. W.C. Gibson, head of UBC's
Department of the History of Medicine and Science.
YACs to Ski
The YACs who have turned Cecil Green Park into
their private watering hole will be returning to their
natural mountain habitat this winter with funny flat
boards on their hairy feet.
That is to say, the Young Alumni Club is going skiing. And this year the club is holding pre-ski exercise
classes for seven Friday evenings from 7:00 p.m. to
8:30 p.m., starting Oct. 4. They will be held in Physical
Education Gymnasium B adjacent to the UBC Winter
Sports Centre and the fee is $5.00 for YAC members.
Registration information may be obtained by phoning the UBC Alumni Association at 228-3313.
And by the way, a new menu is being offered at the
regular Friday night YAC soirees at Cecil Green Park —
"deli food."

Flailers, smashers and swatters ... in fact all manner
of squash players (except the really good ones, we
don't have a category for them) are invited to join in
the fun of the third annual UBC Alumni Chronicle
Squash Tournament and Bunfeed.
Play commences at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 5,
at the Thunderbird Winter Sports Centre. The battle
continues until the 6:00 p.m. bunfeed time, which will
be followed by the not-so-very-grand award ceremonies. Four games are guaranteed each contestant. (N.B.
This is an equal opportunity tournament, may the best
player win.) All this for the modest fee of $6.00!
Early entry is advised as court space is limited. Contact the Alumni office, 228-3313, for your entry form.
