Ethics, aging is the theme
The first national conference on ethics
and aging will take place at UBC Aug. 16
to 20. About 100 delegates are expected to
attend.
Coordinator of UBC's committee on
gerontology, Dr. James E. Thornton, said
the conference is designed to provide an
interdisciplinary forum.
"We want to reach educators,
researchers, practitioners and policymakers
in the field," he said. "We want them to
identify the ethical issues influencing
David Roy
policies, programs and research for aging
people."
Dr. Thornton said such ethical issues
have received little serious attention,
though they involve ideals that are
fundamental to our culture. Among the
ideals are freedom of choice, personal
responsibility and autonomy, human
dignity and social and professional
obligations.
Papers on these topics will be given by a
number of Canadian experts as well as hy
speakers from the U.S. Among the subjects
covered will be age discrimination in work
and leisure, dignity and life-sustaining
treatment, reform of laws affecting the
aged, ethical guidelines for social research
and changes needed in the education of
those providing services to the elderly.
Dr. Thornton, assistant professor in
UBC's Faculty of Education, said the
conference will be of interest to people in
gerontology, health sciences, ethics, law,
adult education, psychology, sociology,
volunteer agencies and education and
health administration.
Opening the first plenary session will be
Dr. David Roy, director for the Centre for
Bioethics, Clinical Research Institute of
Montreal. He will speak on ethics and
aging at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 16 in the lecture
theatre of the Law Building.
Co-chairmen of the conference are Dr.
Thornton and Dr. Earl Winkler, assistant
professor in UBC's philosophy department.
For more information on the program
please contact Mr. Phil Moir, UBC's
Centre for Continuing Education,
222-5225.
UBC's newest vice-president, David
McMillan, started work this month as
the person responsible for university
development (fund-raising) and
community relations.
1,500 here
for 'plant'
conference
Some 1,500 horticultural scientists from
across North America will be streaming
onto the UBC campus this weekend for a
combined meeting of the American and
Canadian societies for horticultural science.
It is the 81st annual meeting of the
ASHS and the 29th annual for the CSHS.
This is the first time in 10 years the two
societies have met in Canada, and the
conference is being hosted bv UBC's
Department of Plant Science.
Dr. Victor Runeckles. head of plant
science, is general chairman of the
conference.
Horticulture is the single largest sector of
British Columbia s billion-doliar
agricultural industry, accounting for nearly
25 per cent of total farm cash receipts.
B.C.'s rmerior valleys produce excellent
tree fruits, grass and a wide range of field
vegetables. Coastal river valleys and deltas
are renowned for berry production,
processing and fresh market vegetables,
and for forest and ornamental nurseries.
Across the province a thriving greenhouse
industry provides flowers, ornamental
plants and vegetables to local markets.
Horticultural scientists play a vital role
in developing and expanding horticultural
crop production and in finding solutions to
the many problems that arise at each level
of production, from the field, to storage,
to processing.
Agriculture Canada has several research
stations in B.C. specializing in horticultural
programs. The Vancouver Research
Station, located on the UBC campus, is the
national centre for plant virus research.
At the University, Plant Science is the
largest of the seven departments within the
Faculty of Agricultural Sciences. It offers
bachelor's, master's and doctoral programs,
with specialization in horticulture as well as
agronomy, rangeland resources and crop
production.
Horticulture students are offered courses
in vegetable, tree fruit, small fruit and
greenhouse crop production — as well as a
number of required courses in biometrics,
experimental design, crop physiology,
genetics and breeding, economic
entomology, plant pathology, weed science
and plant propagation.
Although the ASHS/CSHS conference
runs from Aug. 3 through Aug. 9, the
more than 600 papers will be presented
next Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday in
rooms and lecture halls in the Buchanan
Building and the Woodward Instructional
Resources Centre.
In addition to the papers, which range
from straightforward ( Freeze Protection for
Strawberries') to the more esoteric (Spray
Droplet: Leaf Surface Interaction: Droplet
Drying Characteristics and Nature of
Growth Regulator Deposits as Revealed by
Dispersive X-ray Analysis'), a number of
more informal workshops are scheduled, at
which international experts will speak on
specific aspects of horticulture.
The keynote address (8:30 a.m. Aug. 6,
War Memorial Gym) will be given by Dr.
Charles Hess of the University of
California, Davis. He will speak on
biotechnology and its implications for
horticulture and society.
Headquarters for the conference will be
the Walter Gage Residence. UBC Reports August 1, 1984
Dan Laurence
GBS expert here for summer
A distinguished visitor to the campus this
summer is Prof. Dan H. Laurence,
Literary and Dramatic Advisor to the
George Bernard Shaw Estate. An
internationally acclaimed scholar and
editor of the standard edition of Shaw's
plays, Prof. Laurence is teaching a
graduate course at UBC.
UBC Reports asked Prof. Laurence to
describe the duties and responsibilities of a
literary and dramatic advisor. He
explained that an advisor to an estate "can
be many things", but that as advisor to the
Shaw estate his duties fall into three main
areas.
Firstly, Prof. Laurence acts as a kind of
literary agent, suggesting to the estate ways
and means of publishing new Shaw
materials or repackaging old materials so
that they become saleable.
For example, Prof. Laurence was
responsible for suggesting that instead of
re-issuing an old edition of Shaw's music
criticism, the estate should publish a new,
revised edition.
"The new edition sold extremely well
and did much more business for the estate
than if they had not had a literary advisor
and had decided to reprint the old
volumes," said Prof. Laurence.
Secondly, as literary advisor Prof.
Laurence is responsible for deciding if
material is worth publishing — depending
upon whether it will enhance or detract
from Shaw's reputation.
"Shaw, himself, would never have
approved of publishing early, unfinished
draft material," said Prof. Laurence.
Thirdly, and perhaps most importantly,
Prof. Laurence is responsible as dramatic
advisor for deciding what changes may be
made to a copyrighted Shaw script in
production by a theatrical company.
"Shaw's plays are long, and today's
audiences won't sit through long
performances," Prof. Laurence explained.
"Therefore, cuts are unavoidable — but
they must be intelligent. The quesition is,
which thirty minutes are to be cut?"
Prof. Laurence said he bases his
judgment of which cuts and alterations are
allowable on the principle that "we must
always maintain the integrity of the work
as Shaw conceived it." But, he said, not all
directors have the same attitude towards an
author's work.
"We have a very casual attitude today on
the part of companies," said Prof.
Laurence. "The director thinks he knows
better than anybody in the world,
including the author, what this play means
and how it should be presented."
Prof. Laurence said that quite often the
director will distort the meaning of a play
to suit his own purposes. "It's unfortunate,
because it's an outrageous example of one
man in effect appropriating the work of
another."
But Prof. Laurence said that copyright
laws clearly prohibit any changes to the
script without permission of the copyright
owners — in this case, the Shaw estate.
"Every time you find a group that is
making adjustments they have simply
ignored the contract, they have simply
ignored their obligations."
However, not all theatrical companies
have such a cavalier attitude toward the
works of authors such as Shaw. The Shaw
Festival in Niagara makes use of Prof.
Laurence as a literary and dramatic
advisor to their directors.
"I am a man of the theatre and am a
Shaw scholar," said Prof. Laurence. "It is
this combination which makes me useful to
directors."
Prof. Laurence said his principle
concern as advisor is to protect Shaw's
interests and to see that no damage is done
to his works. "I don't have the final word,
but they (the Shaw Festival) respect my
opinion."
Prof. Laurence, who has acted since the
age of 12 and has directed many plays,
said he understands theatre from an
"insider's" point of view. "I approach
theatre as a critic, director, and actor, as
well as a scholar."
Prof. Laurence said he believes that it
was because of this combination of two
skills — theatrical and academic — that he
was chosen to be literary and dramatic
advisor.
"Like Kim in Rudyard Kipling's novel,
the gods have given me two sides to my
head," said Prof. Laurence, "and I'm able
to put the two together."
CAMPUS
P£OPl£'
An ear nose and throat specialist in
UBC's Faculty of Medicine, assisted by one
of the faculty's communications experts,
has won an international award for clinical
resarch.
The prize is the Mosher Award of the
American Triological Society (triologic
refers to the three subject areas: ear, nose
and throat). It is presented annually for
the best thesis on clinical research
submitted by candidates seeking admission
to the society.
The winner is Dr. Irwin F. Stewart,
clinical associate professor in the
otorhinolaryngology division in the Faculty
of Medicine's surgery department. Dr.
Stewart is only the third Canadian to win
the award. He graduated from UBC with a
BA degree in 1952 and MD degree in
1956.
The communications expert is Mr. Brian
McMahon of the biomedical
communications department. He and
department colleague Mr. Tony
Smithbower helped edit videotape taken by
Mr. McMahon over a period of 13 years.
The edited tape accompanied Dr. Stewart's
thesis, "After Early Identification, What
Follows? A Study of Some Aspects of Deaf
Education from an Otolaryngological
Viewpoint."
"There's no question," Dr. Stewart said,
"that Brian McMahon's professional
attitude and the professional finish to the
videotape contributed much to winning
this award, not only for myself but for the
University."
Prof. Jonathan R. Kesselman, a public
finance expert in UBC's Department of
Economics, has been awarded the
Professorial Fellowship in Economic Policy
by the Reserve Bank of Australia. Prof.
Kesselman will spend the 1985 calendar
year at the Centre for Research on Federal
Financial Relations at the Australian
National University, Canberra. His
research will examine theoretical and
policy aspects of reforming personal income
taxation.
Top timber
engineer
joins UBC
One of the world's outstanding timber
engineers has joined UBC's civil
engineering department.
Prof. Ricardo Foschi won the highest
international award in forest research in
1982, the Marcus Wallenberg Prize of the
Wallenberg Foundation of Sweden. The
prize includes a cash award of $100,000.
More than 100 scientists were nominated
for the 1982 award.
Prof. Foschi is an expert in wood
engineering, structural reliability in wood
and studies on the behavior of wood as a
building material.
Prior to his appointment, Prof. Foschi
had an adjunct appointment with both the
civil engineering department and UBC's
Faculty of Forestry, while he was with the
Western Forest Products Laboratory on
campus.
The federal government laboratory has
been associated with UBC for about 60
years. It became a private firm  — Forintek
- in 1979.
Forintek recently formed a new program
for graduate student training and research
at the University.
Forintek will offer one new fellowship
each year for masters and Ph.D. students.
The fellowship in timber engineering in the
civil engineering department will be for
$15,000 each year.
The laboratory will also establish a
research and development fund. The
money will be used to partly cover expenses
of scientists in timber engineering visiting
UBC and Forintek and to pay for some
research costs.
Familiar figure at Faculty Club for the
past seven years, secretary Louise
Lamb has left campus to join
Department of Medicine at Vancouver
General Hospital.
Prof. Peter Stenberg of the Department
of Germanic Studies has been awarded a
renewal of his grant from the Alexander
von Humboldt Foundation of West
Germany. Prof. Stenberg will be spending
a second leave year at the Universitat
Augsburg to continue his research on the
German-language literatures of central and
eastern Europe.
Prof. Melvin Comisarow of UBC's
chemistry department and former UBC
chemistry department member Prof. Alan
Marshall won the academic science award
at this year's meeting of the American
Mass Spectrometry Society. i
Dr. Marshall is now at Ohio State
University.
Both scientists finished post-graduate
research studies at Stanford University and
joined UBC where they successfully applied
the "Fourier transform mathematical
techniques" to mass spectrometry.
The technique, named after French
mathematician Jean Louis Fourier, is a
mathematical method for decoding
information and offers significant
advantages over mass spectrometers based
on earlier technologies, used to analyse the
components of samples.
Chinese music
at Asian Centre
The twin Wei brothers, two
distinguished musicians from Taiwan, will
give a free concert of Chinese classical
music next Tuesday (Aug. 7) in the
auditorium of the Asian Centre, starting at
8 p.m.
The concert is sponsored by the Chinese
Artists Association of Canada.
The brothers play many instruments,
including a number of ancient Chinese
instruments such as the Ku-Cheng (zither-
like, with 16 or 21 strings), the Pi-Par
(similar to guitar) and the Nan-Wu
(similar to a violin).
Wei Der-Dong is president of the
National Music Association in Taiwan. He
teaches Ku-Cheng at a number of
universities. He is also a composer.
His brother, Wei Der-Liang, plays more
than 20 Chinese instruments, as well as
such international instruments as the
piano, violin and flute. He has been a
teacher, has edited music scores and has
written books on music.
Although the concert is free, seating is
limited and those planning to attend are
encouraged to obtain tickets in advance.
They are available from Perlin Music at
107 East Pender (682-1913) or the World
Journal, 150 East Pender (685-2593). UBC Reports August 1, 1984
Football 'Birds have depth, experience
It seems that summer has barely started
but already the UBC Thunderbird football
program is in the news. Word of the
success of last year's senior cornerback,
Laurent DesLauriers, now a safety with the
Edmonton Eskimos of the Canadian
Football League, has been one bright
moment in the sun for the T'Bird football
program during the summer months.
Last season DesLauriers was UBC's sole
All-Canadian and he set  Thunderbird all-
time records for career yardage in punt
returns and kick returns while
backstopping the football T'Birds to a 6-5
overall record and a 5-3 Western
Intercollegiate Football League standing.
The Thunderbirds finished second in the
conference behind Calgary and then lost
out to the Dinosaurs in a hard-fought
21-12 national semi-final loss in the
Alberta city. Calgary went on to win the
Vanier Cup in Toronto by a score of 31-21
over Queen's University Golden Gaels.
The outlook for the season immediately
ahead looks quite good for the Blue and
Gold as, aside from DesLauriers, only
flanker Chris Grdina, cornerback Brian
Branting and offensive lineman Jim
Rybachuk are missing from what could be
a very powerful unit.
Back is two-time All-Canadian Glenn
Steele at running back. He has a very good
chance to break Gord Penn's all-time UBC
career rushing record sometime this season.
Joining him to create the strongest
backfield in Canada is Regina Ram junior
football sensation Terry Cochrane.
Cochrane joined the Thunderbird football
program in 1981 but then took two years
off school to set numerous junior football
rushing, punt and kick return records
before deciding to return to UBC this
September.
At quarterback, second-year man Jordan
Leith and Notre Dame High School
product Frank Cusati will return to lead
the offensive unit while tight end and tri-
captain Rob Ros will also line up come
September. The offensive line should
maintain UBC's tradition of fielding strong
running and pass blocking.
On the defence, the return of end Carey
Lapa, nose tackle Dwayne Derban and end
Kevin Burt augers well for the line while
the linebacking corps should be strong with
starters Greg Kitchen, tri-captain K.C.
Steele, Jack Beetstra (winner of two player
of the game awards in 1983) and Mac
Gordon all back. Competition for starting
positions here should be fierce.
In the backfield, tri-captain Bruce
Barnett leads the crew composed of Roger
Len McFarlane works on replicas
Replicas are there to touch
Often when we see a beautiful artifact in
a museum showcase we wish to reach out
and touch it. But ancient artifacts usually
Gnup golf
date set
The Gnup Classic golf tournament will
be held on Friday, Sept. 7, on the day of
the first Thunderbird home football game,
it was announced earlier this week by
Director of Men's Athletics Rick Noonan.
"As we did last year, we've scheduled the
tournament to start Friday morning with
the finish coming by early afternoon. All
the golfers will then have time to make the
Calgary game at Thunderbird Stadium in
the early evening," Noonan said.
The tournament is named after Frank
Gnup, longtime UBC football coach who
died in 1977. Funds raised from the
tournament go towards funding
scholarships for students. Noonan feels the
tournament is an excellent example of
community support for university athletes.
"We're really happy that the community
feels that this event is a worthwhile
endeavor. Frank Gnup was a well-known
figure in British Columbia and and an
excellent leader for us all."
Information on the Gnup tournament
and banquet can be obtained by phoning

are too fragile to be handled by the public.
Now a technician at the UBC Museum
of Anthropology is making it possible for
visitors to have a "hands on" experience of
museum artifacts.
Len McFarlane is a specialist in creating
exact replicas of ancient artifacts, replicas
so exact that it is difficult to tell the
original from the reproduction.
Made of durable polyester resin, the
reproductions can withstand rough
handling, although visually they are similar
to the delicate originals.
The process of replication is very
exacting. Mr. McFarlane has to first
consider the delicacy, coloration, shape
and other characteristics of the original,
then create synthetic rubber molds from
the original without harming the artifact.
Molding the replica requires careful
reproduction of such features as age cracks
and centuries of accumulated dirt rubbed
into rough spots. Even the smallest detail
must not be overlooked.
Specially reproduced artifacts can be
seen in the movie Iceman, and soon in the
CBC TV series, The Beachcombers.
Through the work of Len McFarlane,
the UBC Museum of Anthropology has
built up a reputation for excellent
reproductions of ancient artifacts.
Zan, Rob Moretto and Roger DesLauriers
(the fourth DesLauriers to play football at
UBC) with a number of first and second
year players competing to fill the
remaining spot.
Back for his 11th season at UBC,
Thunderbird Head Coach Frank Smith (his
career record of 63 wins, 44 losses and 2
ties makes him UBC's all-time leader) feels
that the 1984 edition of the Thunderbirds
has good potential. "We have some
talented athletes on the squad this year. If
they pick up the system and learn the skills
we could win some ball games," he said.
"It should be an enjoyable season."
Smith sees the Western Intercollegiate
Football League as being the toughest in
Canada. "With Calgary, Alberta and
Saskatchewan only losing a few players
each from last year's teams, we should be
in a real race for the league title. I also
expect Manitoba to be really tough but
with Calgary losing only their backfield of
quarterback Greg Vavra and running back
Tim Petros, they should be the favorites to
win the championship," commented Smith.
The Thunderbirds open training camp
on Friday, Aug. 17, at Thunderbird
Stadium and open their season on the road
two weeks later in Saskatoon when they
visit the Saskatchewan Huskies on Sept. 1.

Oral biology
student wins
A master's degree student in UBC's
Department of Oral Biology, Faculty of
Dentistry, has won a prestigious
international prize for original research.
Mr. William Ng won the Edward H.
Hatton award in the pre-doctoral category
at the 1984 International Association for
Dental Research's annual meeting.
He showed that two substances —
hydrogen sulphide and methyl mercaptan
— formed by bacteria in the mouth, can
penetrate and react with the mucosa lining
the gums. The result of this interaction,
Mr. Ng demonstrated, is that the gums
become more permeable to toxins and
other compounds that cause periodontal
gum diseases.
His findings are important as the
method can be used to assess the diffusion
