The public lecture takes place at 8 p.m. in the UBC Faculty Club. Tickets are $5 and are available in advance from the UBC Botanical Carden Office, 6501 Northwest Marine Drive (228-3928), or at the door on the evening of the lecture. The Friends of the Carden are also sponsoring a bulb sale on Saturday, Oct. 19 and Sunday, Oct. 20 in the Carden Shop located at the entrance to the Main Carden (6250 Stadium Rd.). The sale takes place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days. Enrolment figures down slightly in 1985/86 UBC's 1985-86 daytime winter session enrolment stood at 25,077 students on Sept. 30, exactly 100 students fewer than at the same date in 1984. The enrolment decline is accounted for chiefly at the graduate level, where 3,617 students are registered for 1985-86, a decline of 72 from last year. Undergraduate enrolment in the current year totals 21,460 students compared to last year's total of 21,488. Officials in the Registrar's Office emphasized that the Sept. 30 totals are preliminary figures that may change before Nov. 1, when Canadian universities issue official enrolment statistics. UBC's Faculty of Arts shows the most significant enrolment increase in 1985-86. The faculty has this year registered 7,100 students, 370 more than last year. Some of this increase, it's believed, reflects the suspension of enrolment in first-year Education, pending the introduction of a new teacher-training curiculum in September, 1986. Students who planned to enter first-year Education at UBC in September, 1985, were advised to enrol in other UBC faculties pending approval and introduction of the new teacher-training program. Most of the enrolment increase in Arts is accounted for in programs.leading to the degree of Bachelor of Arts. Registration this year toital 6,225, an increase of 317 over last year's total of 5,908. The number of students entering first-year academic programs at UBC ttas increased slightly from last year's total of 6,293 to 6,368 this year. Enrolment in some faculties, however, continues to decline in the face of difficult economic conditions. First-year enrolment in the Faculty of Forestry, for instance, this year declined to 36 students from last year's 58, reflecting the worst business conditions in years for the forest industry, according to forestry dean Dr. Robert Kennedy. He said the total of first-year registrations looks a little better if the 12 forestry students enrolled at two Interior colleges are added to those registered at UBC. He said enrolment in forestry has been declining since 1979 when first-year registrations reached a high of 145. "Students who enrol in forestry right now are like investors who buy stocks when the market's depressed," he said. "Those students will be sitting pretty in four years' time when they graduate because there will be a serious shortage of foresters resulting from the fact that under a recent federal- provincial agreement some $300 million will be pumped into B.C. alone over the next five years to improve the industry." Enrolment in UBC's other major faculty—Science—remains almost identical to last year at 3,941 students, an increase of only five students. Fourth-year Physical Education student Diana Rakiecki tries out a new stationary exerciser called the Pioneer Wheeler while associate physical education professor Dr. Kenneth Coutts looks on. The wheeler, a gift from the Telephone Pioneers, a service organization in B.C. Tel., is useful in rehabilitation programs and for research because it's capable of simulating drag encountered under actual road conditions as well as various degrees of incline for uphill and downhill training situations. Diana, a world-class wheelchair athlete, won gold and silver medals at the 1984 World Wheelchair Games. Man-in-Motion Update: Oct. 7,1985. Rick Hansen has travelled 8,200 miles on his round-the- world-wheelchair tour to raise funds for spinal cord research and rehabilitation, and is currently in Geneva, Switzerland. Contributions in B.C. so far total $439,000. If you'd like to make a donation, call 687-5200. Call this number if you're prepared to volunteer to help with tour administration.

The total represents a 21 per cent increase over the previous fiscal year, when the University received just over $49 million for research. Four UBC faculties were singled out by Dr. Peter Larkin, associate vice- president for research, as having made "significant gains" in research funding in the last fiscal year. Statistics compiled by Dr. R.D. Spratley, director of UBC's Office of Research Services, show that the biggest single gain was made by the Faculty of Applied Science, where grants increased by 36 per cent to $7,624,101 from the previous year's total of $4,850,820. The three other faculties that registered significant gains were Arts, up 24 per cent to $3,483,001; Medicine, up 23 per cent to almost $20.7 million; and Science, up 15 per cent to a total of just over $16.5 million. Medicine and Science rank first and second out of UBC's 12 faculties in terms of research fund totals. Applied Science is third, followed by Arts, Research centre opens More than five years of planning and cooperation between the Shaughnessy and Children's Hospitals and the University of B.C. has resulted in a major medical research facility. The Medical Research Centre on the Shaughnessy Hospital site on Oak Street, built at a cost of $11 million, was officially opened Sept. 30. Participating in the ceremony were Lieutenant- Governor Robert G. Rogers; B.C. Health Minister Jim Nielsen; Universities, Science and Communications Minister Dr. Patrick McGeer; Dr. Pierre Bois, president of the Medical Research Council of Canada; Dr. Aser Rothstein, director of the Hospital for Sick Children Research Institute of Toronto; and others who led coordination and fund-raising for the new centre. The centre is owned and operated by the University and incorporates both the Children's Variety Research Centre and the Shaughnessy Hospital Research Centre. Each of the three partners contributed funds proportionate to the space they occupy. Money from the two hospitals UDC came from the community through public contributions. Heavily involved in raising funds for the project was the Variety Club, Tent No. 47. Dr. William Webber, dean of UBC's Faculty of Medicine, who was master of ceremonies at the opening, said the centre will have a major impact. "First of all, it will allow us to do better research," Dr. Webber said, "and will enable us to attract the highest quality of researchers and physicians to the Shaughnessy, Children's and Grace Hospitals on the Shaughnessy site, the largest health care complex in the province." "Second, through interaction between clinicians and scientists, the centre will also have a direct affect on the quality of care provided for patients." Research into arthritis, arteriosclerosis or hardening of the arteries, cystic fibrosis, diabetes, genetics, heart disease, immunology, infectious diseases, viruses, liver and biliary tract disease, psychiatric disorders, metabolic disease and spinal cord research will be conducted at the centre. Agricultural Sciences, Graduate Studies, Pharmaceutical Sciences, Forestry and Education, each of which received more than $1 million. Other UBC faculties received amounts ranging from just over $79,000 up to $775,377. Another highlight of the 1984-85 research picture is the near doubling of the value of industrial grants and contracts under which UBC undertakes research for the private sector. The number of such contracts increased to 177 in 1984-85 compared to 107 in the previous year. The value of these awards in 1984-85 was $3,386,000 compared with $1,707,000 the previous year. Dr. Larkin said a "fair proportion" of the increase in research funding was the result of the activities of UBC's new University-Industry Liaison Officer, Dr. James Murray. "We have put special emphasis on building university-industry collaborative research since July 1, 1984, when Dr. Murray's appointment became effective," Dr. Larkin said. "He and Dr. Spratley together have done a superb job of improving our performance in this area." Dr. Larkin said the University had also been active in obtaining grants from special programs operated by the Natural Science and Engineering Research Council, the national body that funds scientific research. Eight UBC faculty members received 1984-85 funding of almost $1 million under a new NSERC University-Industry Interface program for work on problems associated with the smelting of lead concentrates, grading of lumber and coal gasification. Dr. Larkin said UBC now leads Canadian universities in terms of grants from the National Research Council for funding research in biotechnology. The 1984-85 total for research in this area almost tripled to more than $430,000 from $115,570 the previous year. He added that UBC had set a goal of making research income at UBC equal to one half the provincial government operating grant. "We could reach that point by 1990," he said, "but I feel sure we'll be there by 1995."
