lecture on Wednesday, Oct. 23 entitled
"The Great Plant Hunters."
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.

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
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
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
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
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
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.
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.

Funds for UBC research reach an all-time high
Funds for research at UBC stood at
an all-time high of $59,557,645 in the
1984-85 fiscal year.
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
Each of the three partners contributed
funds proportionate to the space they
occupy. Money from the two hospitals
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
"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
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
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."
