President agrees to three-year extension of contract
The University of B.C.'s Board of
Governors announced today that Dr.
Douglas Kenny had agreed to a three-
year extension to his present five-year
contract as president of UBC.
President Kenny's decision to accept
the extension will mean that he will
continue to serve as UBC's president
until July, 1983. His present five-year
contract would have expired on June
30, 1980.
Board chairman Ian Greenwood
said the Board "took great pleasure"
in being able to announce that Presi
dent Kenny had agreed to the extension. "I am personally very pleased
that the Board and the University will
continue to have the benefit of Dr.
Kenny's expertise and leadership over
the next five years," he said.
• Mr. Greenwood said it was timely
for the Board to consider an extension
to Dr. Kenny's contract, which had
just over a year left to run. He added
that it was Dr. Kenny's preference that
the extension should be for three
years, rather than a longer period.
Dr.   Kenny,  a native of Victoria,
became UBC's president on July 1,
1975, after a 25-year career as
teacher, researcher and administrator. He holds the degrees of
Bachelor and Master of Arts in
psychology from UBC. He received his
Ph.D. in psychology from the University of Washington in 1952.
Dr. Kenny joined the UBC faculty'
in 1950 and was named head of the
psychology department in 1965. He
became associate dean of the faculty
of Arts in 1969 and dean of the faculty
the following year. He served as dean

of Arts until his appointment as UBC's
president.
Dr. Kenny has been deeply involved
in UBC affairs since joining the faculty. He is a former president of the
Faculty Association and served on a
number of key University and Senate
committees before becoming president.
As a teacher and researcher in
psychology,'his interests lay in the
areas of personality and learning,
developmental psychology and patterns of child development.
Dr. Kenny was a member of the
Canada Council from 1975 to 1978,
when he was appointed for a three-
year term to the new Social Sciences
and Humanities Research Council,
which makes grants to assist scholarship and research in the humanities
and social sciences.
President Kenny talked recently to
UBC Reports about the problems and
prospects for higher education at
UBC in 1978. The interview appears
in this edition on page 2.
UBC will borrow
funds to finish
Asian Centre
UBC will borrow $3,591,952 to complete construction of the
campus Asian Centre adjacent to the Nitobe Memorial Garden.
An announcement that UBC had been authorized to borrow the
funds was made Saturday (Nov. 4) by education minister Dr.
Patrick McGeer, who said the provincial government had acted
on the advice of the Universities Council of B.C.
Completion of the Asian Centre will provide a visible focus for
the promotion of scholarship on Asia and the furtherance of
Asian-Canadian cultural understanding.
"We're naturally very pleased that the government has agreed
that we proceed with completion of the Asian Centre," said;
UBC president Douglas Renny. "It means that at last we will
have a centralized point for Asian collections now scattered on
campus, as well as a centre for research dedicated to Asian
culture. The Asian Centre will also provide a meeting ground
for scholars, artists and laymen from the general public."
The Asian Studies Library to be located in the centre will provide seating for 100 readers and shelf space for 250,000 volumes,
along with the normal library services of information, reference
and circulation.
The centre will also contain a modest performance and
display area to accommodate University fractions and which
will be available on a bookable basis to local organizations in the
Asian community for special events, displays or performances.
One of the big contributions of the Asian Centre will be the
freeing up of considerable space in the already badly overcrowded Main Library. Movement of the Asian Studies collection to the Asian Centre will release to the Main Library shelf
space for 150,000 volumes and an additional 2,230 square feet
of floor space, which can be converted into shelf space for
40,000 volumes or reader space for 100 users.
Completion of the project will provide approximately 21,500
man days of work and will take an estimated 14 to 16 months.
'Birds face Friday test
against Wilfrid Laurier
The University of B.C. Thunderbirds have two big football games
coming up at Empire Stadium — this
Friday night, Nov. 10, and again on
Saturday night, Nov. 25.
In between, the 'Birds hope to be
playing in Toronto on Nov. 18 for the
C ntercollegiate   champion
ship.
UBC meets Wilfrid Laurier this Friday at 8 p.m. at Empire Stadium in
the Western Bowl, or the Canadian
intercollegiate semi-final. They got into the game by knocking off the
University of Calgary last Saturday,
while Laurier dumped the University
of Western Ontario.
Tickets for Friday night's game —
$5 for faculty and staff and $3 for
students — are available at Vancouver
Ticket Centre outlets, at the athletic
office  in  the  War  Memorial  Gym
nasium, and will be on sale Friday
night at Empire Stadium.
On Saturday, Nov. 25 at 8 p.m. at
Empire Stadium, UBC meets Simon
Fraser University in a renewal of the
Shrum Bowl, last played in 1971.
Nets proceeds of the Shrum Bowl
will go to the United Way campaign.
Tickets are $5 for seats under cover
and $3 for seats in the open. There are
also 3,000 under-cover tickets
available at $2 each for UBC students
and they are on sale until 5 p.m. on
Nov. 20 in the Student Union
Building.
Some $5 Shrum Bowl tickets are
also on sale in SUB. Otherwise, $5 and
$3 tickets can be obtained at any
Eaton's store or Vancouver Ticket
Centre outlet.
The Shrum Bowl will be played
under Canadian rules.

UBC and community organizations will take part in traditional Remembrance
Day ceremonies on Saturday (Nov. 11) beginning at 10:45 a.m. in the War
Memorial Gym. Eleven wreaths will be placed at the foot of the Memorial Wall.
Faculty, staff and students are invited to attend. University will be closed Monday (Nov. 13) in observance of Remembrance Day.
Better speaking skills club aim
Dr. Ralph Yorsh is out to improve
public-speaking skills at UBC.
He's the man behind the organization of a UBC branch of the Toast-
masters International Club, which
meets Thursdays at 7:30 p.m. in the
faculty lounge (Room 278) of the
Faculty of Forestry in the H.R. MacMillan Building.
Membership is open to anyone in
the University community, says Dr.
Yorsh, who lectures in UBC's Faculty
of Dentistry.
So far, 10 students from several
faculties, including Law, Applied
Science and Arts have joined up. Dr.
Yorsh says the activities of the club
will be of interest to students who are
entering professions where public
speaking is a job factor, and he thinks
the club could also raise the standard
of teaching at UBC.
He says many branches of the club
are located on university campuses.
Toastmasters International boasts
65,000 members who belong to 4,000
clubs in 43 countries.
Dr. Yorsh says each meeting begins
with a brief procedural lecture on
speaker introduction and evaluation.
After that, each member is expected
to participate in the meetings, with
the emphasis on speaking technique
and immediate evaluation.
Membership in the club is limited to
between 20 and 40 persons. The annual fee is $30, plus an initiation fee of
$10. Fees provide members with a
monthly magazine and a speaker's
manual.
Campus ECU gets
teaching grant
The provincial ministry of health
has agreed to give UBC an additional
$132,828 for 1978-79 to cover patient-
care costs associated with teaching in
the extended care hospital on the UBC
campus, UBC President Douglas
Kenny has announced.
Dr. Kenny said the ministry earlier
had allotted $82,160 for the same purpose, bringing the total to $214,988 —
only $1,000 below UBC's original
estimate of indirect teaching costs in
the new hospital.
The 300-bed extended care unit was
officially opened on July 12, 1977, by
Health Minister Robert McClelland
and Education Minister Pat McGeer.
Dr. Kenny said the $214,988 would
cover the salaries and fringe benefits
of 12 positions in the hospital. UBC reports

An interview
with President Kenny
UBC's president, Dr. Douglas
Kenny, is now in his fourth year
as the University's chief executive officer. Recently, he
took time out from his busy
schedule to talk to UBC Reports
about the problems and prospects
facing the University in 1978.
UBC REPORTS: How would you
describe the state of the University at
this juncture in its history?
PRESIDENT KENNY: UBC, like
other major universities in Canada,
finds itself in a situation that is the
result of the tremendous expansion of
higher education since the Second
World War.
While Canadian universities
responded well to rapidly increasing
enrolments and the need for new
buildings and other facilities, the upshot has been an unevenness of quality
in most Canadian universities. We're
simply not able to offer the overall
high quality of education that our
students demand and which I think
Canadians have a right to expect.
UBC REPORTS: How has this
manifested itself at UBC?
PRESIDENT KENNY: In some
areas of great strength that are as
good as anything you can point to in
Canada...and some remarkable
pockets of weakness. The central
problem for this University in the
years ahead is finding the resources to
strengthen existing departments and
faculties that have never had the basic
resources to offer education of the
highest quality.
However, I want to emphasize that
in a time of financial uncertainty it is
vitally important that the strength of
existing areas of excellence within the
University be maintained.
"Canadians will be supportive of
what happens at universities if
every possible effort is made to
improve standards and upgrade
weak spots."
UBC REPORTS: You don't see
new programs and innovations as the
central issue for UBC in the future,
then?
PRESIDENT KENNY: That's im
portant, but not paramount, in my
mind. Universities always have to be
alert to new opportunities to expand
their offerings and research to meet
the needs of the economy.
Let me give you one example of that
— we've made a proposal to the
Universities Council for establishment
of a coal research laboratory at UBC.
B.C. is very rich in coal resources and
a lot of work needs to be done in
developing new techniques for utilizing this resource, which will be of
growing importance as the energy
crisis deepens.
But I want to emphasize again that
I don't regard this kind of expansion
as UBC's major challenge. Our priorities have to be the strengthening of
our existing framework of departments and faculties.
The commonest plea I have in this
office from deans- and department
heads is money to add new faculty
members, who will be able to expand
the existing offerings of the University.
The second most common plea is
money to purchase additional supplies
and new equipment. The cost of supplies for science labs has escalated in
recent years and many departments
are barely holding the line in terms of
quality. Much of the equipment in our
research labs is obsolete and needs to
be replaced immediately.
UBC REPORTS: The University
received an increase of nearly 10 per
cent this year in funds for operating
purposes. Has this increase enabled
you to provide some relief for these
problems?
PRESIDENT KENNY: Only in a
minimal way. It's been a very small
step forward in terms of new programs
and strengthening existing departments. If you talk to deans, department heads and faculty, they'll tell
you the increase was so minimal that
it's very hard to detect.
One of the hardest hit divisions of
the University outside the faculties has
been the library, which is having the
greatest difficulty coping with inflation and the devaluation of the dollar.
Last year, the Board of Governors approved a supplementary budget of
about $487,000 for the library so it
would not experience any loss in purchasing power.
But that only means the library is in
an Alice in Wonderland situation...running faster in order to stand
still. They simply don't have the funds
to move ahead and build up collections in areas of weakness.
UBC REPORTS: What you've
said so far implies that you believe
confidence in higher education can be
restored by improving the quality of
education at the University?
PRESIDENT KENNY: That's ex
actly right. I firmly believe that Canadians will be supportive of what happens at universities if every possible effort is made to improve standards and
upgrade weak spots within the institutions .
And I think we've taken some steps
in this direction. Senate, for instance,
recently raised admission requirements for the University, which are
being phased in over a three-year
period. Entering students will have to
prepare themselves for UBC by taking
a more structured program in high
school.
UBC has never lost sight of the fact
that students, in order to graduate
with a good degree, need major or
core requirements. I think standards
at some Canadian universities have
declined in recent years because
students are free to indulge in a
"cafeteria-style" of education. All they
need do is amass a certain number of
credits to graduate. No attempt is
made to give them depth and breadth
of knowledge in a specific area of
study.
UBC REPORTS: Is there anything
else you can point to that's designed to
improve standards?
PRESIDENT KENNY: Yes, there
is. I said earlier that our primary goal
in the immediate future had to be the
strengthening of existing departments. Sometimes, however, the
weaknesses are difficult to pinpoint
and are known about only vaguely.
One of the ways of overcoming this
knowledge gap, if I can put it that
way, is through periodic reviews of
departments and faculties. Departmental reviews have been carried out
in a number of faculties and these
have been very useful in determining
areas that need strengthening.
Shortly, we will begin the first
reviews of faculties as a whole. Committees are being formed to review the
Faculties of Science and Education.
They were chosen because, in the case
of Science, Dean George Volkoff is
retiring, and in the case of Education
Dean John Andrews has decided that
"The central problem for
UBC in the years ahead is
finding the resources to
strengthen existing
departments and faculties.'
"We've emphasized (to the
Universities Council) the need
for funds to hire additional
faculty members to strengthen
existing departments."
he will step down next June SO, but
will remain a member of the faculty.
The reviews will be carried out by
committees that will have as their
members people from inside and outside the University. The committees
will be asked to deal with such questions as: Is the faculty's curriculum
contemporary and is it looked at
periodically in a hard way with a view
to revising and updating it?; Is the
faculty adequately equipped to perform its educational function or is it
slipping back in terms of basic needs?
These are the kinds of questions the
committees will consider. Incidentally, I hope no one in either of the
faculties to be reviewed will see the
work of the committees as a threat.
The intent is not inquisitorial; it's
aimed at improving the quality of
education.
UBC REPORTS: Can we turn
briefly to a couple of matters raised
this year by the Universities Council?
They made the observation, in their
annual statement, that UBC's operating budget seemed overweighted in
terms of academic salaries. What is
your reaction to that?
PRESIDENT KENNY: I simply
can't accept that point of view.
Their statement could mean two
things. If they mean we have too many
faculty members, my reply is that on
the basis of nationwide studies we've
carried out, UBC is only average in
terms of faculty-student ratio. I don't
think that's good enough, and in our
presentation to the council this year,
we've emphasized the need for funds
to hire additional faculty members to
strengthen existing departments.
If the council means that we pay
our faculty members too much
money, I can only say that while our
salaries are competitive, we don't
overpay our teachers. As I've said
before publicly, if the goal is quality
education, we have to be prepared to
hire first-class teachers and researchers. If we don't, we will have second-
class education and I can't believe
that's what British Columbians want.
There's something of a paradox in
the council's statement. They're aware
that when hard decisions have to be
made about how money is spent at
UBC, we opt to invest in the academic
program. For the past six years, the
Canadian   Association   of   University UBC reports
pageS
Business Officers has collected
statistics from the 23 largest universities in Canada on the percentage
allocation of funds.
Every year, UBC has placed first in
the percentage of funds allocated for
academic purposes, and 23rd in terms
of funds allocated for non-academic
purposes. I think that's something we
should be proud of, and I also think it
speaks, volumes about where this
University thinks its priorities lie.
UBC REPORTS: Can you summarize UBC's goals and objectives
over the next few years?
PRESIDENT KENNY: Well, I've
tried to emphasize that our primary
objective is to improve the quality of
education across the board at UBC by
strengthening existing departments
and providing funds to strengthen
vital support areas such as the library.
I think, too, that this university and
others in Canada will have to respond
to the recently announced goals of the
federal government to further emphasize areas of research that are in
the national interest.
It seems likely that increased
amounts of money will go into
mission-oriented research. Now that
course of action has its hazards, particularly if the federal government
unilaterally decides which projects are
important and which get funded.
University researchers have a
significant role to play in identifying
areas that should be of national concern. So I would hope that decisions
about spending are made by government in consultation with the universities and industry.
I hope too that the federal government won't lose sight of the fact that
mission-oriented research is vitally
dependent on curiosity-based research, which is one of the primary
functions of a university.
I think another issue Canadian
universities will have to take a stand
against in the immediate future is the
tendency to make them increasingly
provincially oriented, in short,
parochial. This is largely the result of
the federal government's withdrawal
from the arrangements for providing
operating grants for universities.
There will be increasing pressures on
the universities to reorient themselves
to goals envisaged by provincial
governments at the expense of national and international functions.
Bus fund
nears goal
Have wheels, will travel. No wheels
and you stay at home.
That's what the people who live in
the Extended Care Unit on campus
have found and now they're just a few
hundred dollars short of changing
that.
There are 300 patients in the Extended Care hospital. Although most
of them will likely be here on campus
for some time, the hospital staff tries
to encourage them not to lose track of
their former neighborhood.
"We try to keep the patients involved in the community," says Kathy
Scalzo, director of rehabilitation at
the hospital. "We try to encourage
them to go to their neighborhood
church, or their Kiwanis club meeting
or Legion." But without reliable
transportation that's empty encouragement, she explains.
Up to this time the Extended Care
Unit has made use of the Easter Seal
buses "like every other organization in
town," Ms. Scalzo says. But there are
problems: costs are higher because
UBC is classified as "out of town";
sometimes the bus is cancelled at the
last minute; UBC people are first to be
picked up and last to be dropped off
on community outings.
The answer is obviously their own
bus, and to that end $11,900 has been
raised. More than $8,000 of that sum
was raised in September when 75 extended care patients made the journey
in wheelchairs from the hospital to the
University Gates as a "wheelathon"
event. Money has been donated by
people who read about the September
"push for wheels" in the paper; some
$1,200 has come from a recent raffle.
"We're pretty close to our goal
now," says Ms. Scalzo. "These people
want to be involved in the community
and without a bus they can't get out
there."
Tax deductible donations made out
to the Health Sciences Centre can be
sent to Kathy Scalzo, director of
rehabilitation, Extended Care Unit,
UBC.
Talks continue
with unions
Negotiations are continuing with
three labor groups on campus as the
University attempts to settle all
1978-79 contracts.
In negotiations with the 39-member
Local 15 of the Office and Technical
Employees Union (OTEU), six meetings have been held with provincial
mediator Charles Stewart, and a
seventh session was scheduled for today (Wednesday).
At the UBC Health Sciences Centre, direct negotiations are continuing
between the University and registered
nurses and paramedical staff.
Agreements with the Canadian
Union of Public Employees, the
Association of University and College
Employees, the International Union of
Operating Engineers, and with the
UBC Faculty Association were ratified
earlier.
Meanwhile, charges of common
assault laid by the Crown against three
members of the IUOE during the
three-month strike in the spring of this
year were dismissed in Richmond provincial court Oct. 25 when Judge Joel
Groberman ruled there was insufficient evidence to convict.
Charged with assaulting supervisor
Walter Busch were operating engineers Terry Derouin, Joseph Vizjack
and Henry Houston. An additional
charge against Derouin of causing
willful damage was also dismissed.
Emily Carr oil paintings given to the University shortly before his
death by Dr. Walter Gage are admired by fine arts secretarial staff June
Binkert, left, and Rosie Hanbury. Larger of the two paintings,
"Happy Bushes," was a gift by Miss Carr to Dr. Gage, who first met the
B.C. painter-writer while he was a teacher at Victoria College from
1927 to 1933. Dr. Gage and Dr. Ruth Humphrey, a former UBC faculty member who was also teaching at Victoria College then, put Miss
Carr in touch with Dr. Ira Dilworth, a Victoria College colleague, who
encouraged Miss Carr's writing activities and edited them for publication. Dr. Gage visited Miss Carr and wrote to her from time to time until her death in 1946. The smaller painting shown above is entitled
"Summer—Mount Douglas 1942." A third Carr painting owned by Dr.
Gage, entitled "Quiet," was donated to UBC in 1963.
UBC chemical engineer dies
Prof. Kishan B. Mathur of the
Department of Chemical Engineering
has died at the age of 49. He had been
with UBC for 11 years.
His invention of the "spouted bed"
process, which has been applied in a
number of industries, won him "The
Inventor" award of Canadian Patents
& Development Ltd. in 1969.
Dr. Mathur was born in Delhi, India, where he received a diploma in
chemical engineering in 1949. A year
later he received his master's degree in
chemical engineering from the
University of Michigan. He took his
doctorate from the University of Birmingham in 1958.
Dr. Mathur had extensive experience in industry. He held research
positions with Dominion Tar &
Chemical Co. and Imperial Oil Ltd.
in Ontario, and with Imperial
Chemical Industries in both India and
Scotland.
It was while with the National
Research Council from 1951 to 1955
that he invented the spouted bed process. Originally his invention was used
for drying grain, particularly wheat. It
has since been used by the sulphur
and plastics industries. At the time of
his death he and his colleagues in the
department were applying th" process
to a problem involving B.C. coal. Mis
UBC colleagues w.li continue his
work.
Dr. Mathur is survived by his wif-
and three daughters. The Kishan B.
Mathur Educational Trust has been
formed to contribute to the education
of his daughters. Cheques should be
made out to the fund and addressed to
Dr. Norman Epstein, Department of
Chemical Engineering.
•     *     •
Two other members of the University community died in October.
Robert Bedard, an assistant" technician with the UBC Research Forest in
Haney since 1972, died Oct. 13 at the
age of 35.
Hanoria Davies, who had been with
the University food services department for 11 years, died last month
after a short illness. She was 61.
Pulp and paper
research arm here
A research arm of the Canadian
pulp and paper industry is now
located at UBC.
The development is the result of a
research and teaching agreement
signed by the University and the Pulp
and Paper Research Institute of
Canada (PAPRICAN), an organization that has had a similar agreement
with McGill University since PAPRICAN was established 50 years ago.
Under the agreement, a
PAPRICAN research scientist will join
UBC's Department of Chemical
Engineering from his laboratory in
Montreal. Dr. Richard J. Kerekes will
be appointed an honorary professor in
the UBC department, will continue
his research at UBC, and will direct
the research of graduate students doing work of interest to th? industry.
The agreemt'nt also provides for
?APRICAN scientists to leach at the
graduate lev,'!.
PAPRICAN will also b- responsible
for ail costs associated with the institutes research conducted by its
staff, and for the provision of equipment and additional supplies required
for research by graduate students
working under the direction of institute staff.
Ian A. Barclay, vice-chairman of
PAPRICAN and chairman of the
board of B.C. Forest Products Ltd.,
said the development "will be of
benefit to the University, the institute
and the western pulp and paper industry." UBCalendar
