Fourth-quarter field goal by UBC place kicker Ken Munro went through the
uprights despite sterling effort by Simon Fraser defensive back Ed Jones (10)
who tipped the ball slightly. UBC Thunderbirds scored a single point on a punt
into the end zone later in the quarter to eke out a 4-3 win over the SFU
Clansmen in a rain-soaked contest at Empire Stadium last Friday (Oct. 19).
Birds victorious again
The UBC Thunderbirds nipped
Simon Fraser University Clansmen 4-3
at Empire Stadium Friday night to
win a water-filled Shrum Bowl, and
this Saturday at Thunderbird
Stadium they resume their quest for
the College Bowl.
University of Alberta Golden Bears
are the visitors, and the Birds must
win or tie to get the home field advantage Nov. 3 in the sudden-death
playoff for the Western Intercollegiate
Football League championship.
Should the Birds lose on Saturday, the
playoff game would be in Edmonton.
Winner of the Nov. 3 playoff meets
the Maritimes winner Nov. 10 in the
Atlantic Bowl in Halifax, with the
winner of that one going on to the College Bowl Nov. 17 in Toronto against
the Ontario-Quebec champion.
Thunderbirds were defeated by
Queen's University in last year's College Bowl.
Friday night's Shrum Bowl was
played before a pro-Thunderbird
crowd of 12,420, and UBC head coach
Frank Smith said it helped to have
that support. He expressed the hope
that enough Shrum Bowl enthusiasm
would carry over to Thunderbird
Stadium   this   Saturday   to   provide
packed-house support for UBC
against Alberta. Game time is 2 p.m.
The artificial turf of Empire
Stadium was a sheet of water during
the first half of Friday night's game, as
near-torrential rain fell steadily. The
rain eased for the second half, but
field conditions weren't much better.
With neither team able to mount
much in the way of sustained offence,
it was a question of who would make
the fewer mistakes. And that battle
was clearly won by UBC.
The Clansmen fumbled the ball
nine times, UBC only three times.
Although the Birds recovered only two
of the SFU fumbles, the miscues often
cost the Clan good field position. UBC
gave up the ball only once on a fumble.
In the first half, each team had two
scoring opportunities, gaining possession inside the opposition 40-yard-
line, but neither could capitalize. Ken
Munro missed twice for UBC on long-
range field goal attempts, and a bad
snap from centre ruined a field goal
attempt by Brian Grant of SFU. The
Clan's best scoring chance came midway through the second quarter when

After careful consideration of 19
students, selection committees have
named a fourth year medical student
and two first year law students winners
of UBC's three leading scholarships
awarded for a combination of
academic achievement and participation in UBC and community activities.
The winner of the $2,500 Sherwood
Lett Memorial Scholarship is Robert
Mack, last year's medical class president who has been extremely active in
student affairs while remaining near
the top of his class in academic ranking.
The $1,000 Harry Logan Memorial
Scholarship has been awarded to
Anders Ourom and the $1,500 Amy
Sauder Scholarship goes to Susan
Paish, both of whom are enrolled this
year in first year Law.
Robert Mack, winner of the Sherwood Lett award, which is named for
a former UBC chancellor and Chief
Justice of British Columbia, took his
Bachelor of Science in honors chemistry from UBC, graduating with
distinction in 1971. He entered the
medical faculty here in 1976 and since
that time has been student representative to the Faculty of Medicine, class
president and member of the Medical
Undergraduate Society executive.
He is presently involved in the
development of an ethics course for
fourth year medical students so that
students have an opportunity to
discuss social issues and ethics in
medical practice.
He participated last summer in
UBC's Rural Doctor program, working with the doctors of Clearwater,
B.C. and intends, following graduation to practise general medicine in a
small B.C. community.
Susan Paish, winner of the Amy
Sauder Scholarship, has entered first
year Law this year on a combined
Bachelor of Law/Bachelor of Commerce program. A native of New
Denver, B.C., she attended Centennial secondary school before entering
UBC in 1975. During her three years
in the Faculty of Commerce, she
maintained a consistently high
academic standing, making the
Dean's Honor List each year.
For three consecutive years, Ms.
Paish has been awarded the General
Motors Summer Scholarship. She has
served as member-at-large for the
Commerce Undergraduate Society
and has been involved in the Industrial Relations Management Option club in Commerce.
While in residence, Ms. Paish was
sports director for the Totem Park
residence, and now enjoys squash,
swimming and jogging regularly.
The Harry Logan scholarship, won
by Anders Ourom, is named for the
late Harry T. Logan, former head of
UBC's Department of Classics and one
of the original members of the UBC
faculty when the University first
opened in 1915.
Anders Ourom, a Vancouver resident, was an honors History student in
the Faculty of Arts before entering the
Faculty of Law this year. He has been
active as a mountain-climber with the
Varsity Outdoors Club, an associate
director of the men's intramural program, and has served as Arts representative to the Student Representative
Assembly. He now holds the position
of Assistant Director of Finance with
the AMS.
Mr. Ourom is currently writing a
Climber's Guide to the Squamish
Chief, which will be published by the
B.C. Mountaineering Club in the
spring. He hopes to enter graduate
studies in international law following
completion of his UBC law degree.
First year law students Anders Ourom, left, and Susan Paish are two of the three
students named as winners of UBC's leading scholarships for academic achievement and service.
Meetings set to hear erosion control proposals
Four public meetings have been
scheduled to consider erosion control
proposals for the Point Grey cliffs.
A meeting at Lord Byng School at
7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 8, will
discuss the master plan report
prepared for the University of B.C. by
Swan Wooster Engineering of Vancouver.
The following night, Nov. 9, a 7:30
p.m. meeting at Lord Byng School
will consider a brief presented by the
Wreck  Beach Committee,  represen
ting concerned people who use the
beach below the cliffs, and the general
public.
Briefs covering any other proposals
must be submitted to UBC governor
Stanley Weston by Nov. 2, and these
will be discussed at two public
meetings in the Hebb Theatre at UBC
on Saturday, Nov. 10. The first
meeting will be held in Hebb from
2:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., and an evening meeting will start at 7:30 p.m.
Anyone wishing to submit a brief
for the Saturday meetings should con
tact Weston at 228-5311 for guidelines. Weston, a soils expert, will chair
all of the meetings.
A limited number of copies of all
briefs will be made available at the
first public meeting to persons who
telephone a reservation to Weston
before 4 p.m. on Nov. 5, at 228-5311.
Weston said no briefs will be read
aloud at the meetings. He said
anybody wishing to question an individual brief will have to be familiar
with the contents before the meeting.
All  briefs,   records  of the  public
meetings and Weston's recommendations will be submitted to the property
committee of the UBC Board of
Governors on Dec. 4.
The Board of Governors appointed
Weston earlier this month to serve as a
one-man task force on the cliff erosion
problem. He was asked to make the
Swan Wooster master plan public,
consult with interested groups and obtain their views, and then prepare a
written plan of operation for immediate remedial action. UBCreports

Research park raises questions
First to cross the finish line in last week's diamond jubilee running of the Arts
'20 relay race was zoology graduate student Peter Hamilton, anchorman for the
UBC rowing team. More than 650 students representing some 80 teams took part
in the annual run from the grounds of the Vancouver General Hospital to Main
Mall near the Cairn. Rowers, who have won the eight-lap race four out of the
last five years, were followed by the UBC foresters, engineering underdogs,
engineers no. one team and a team representing the Faculty of Science.
UBC loses two former faculty
Two former faculty members, Dr.
John McCreary and Dr. Coolie
Verner, both innovators in their
fields, have died.
Dr. John F. McCreary, former dean
of medicine at UBC, champion of
university health sciences centres and
the concept of the health team, died
of a heart attack at his home at Gibsons, B.C., Oct. 14. He was 69.
As president of the Association of
Canadian Medical Colleges from 1963
to 1966 he persuaded the federal
government to set aside half a billion
dollars in a health resources fund to
build health education buildings
across Canada.
When he became dean of UBC's
Faculty of Medicine in 1959, he could
have dedicated his career to building a
faculty along the lines of the medical
schools at Harvard or McGill where
excellence in scientific medicine was
paramount.
Instead he aimed at building a
health sciences centre where students
in the health sciences would be trained
in close association with each other so
that as working professionals, each
would know the competence and
limitations of other professions.
Dr. McCreary saw this as the major
contribution universities could make
to deal with the explosion of nonmedical health specialties since the Second World War, and the demands
on the health care system introduced
by medicare. He wanted to integrate
non-medicakjiealth professionals into
health care as a health team.
. Dr. McCreary was born in Ontario
and graduated in medicine from the
University of Toronto in 1934. He took
post-graduate training in pediatrics in
Boston and Toronto.
From 1945 to 1951 he practised
pediatrics in Ontario and described
these as the happiest days of his life.
He became head of UBC's Department of Paediatrics in 1951, one year
after the Faculty of Medicine was
established. He was dean of the faculty for 13 years until 1972 when he
became Coordinator of Health
Sciences, a post he held until retirement in 1975.
The government of Canada
recognized his achievements by
awarding him a Centennial Medal in
1967 and by investing him as an Officer of the Order of Canada in 1974
for "contributions to the advance of
medical research and the teaching of
medicine."
Dr. Coolie Verner, former chairman of adult education in UBC's
Faculty of Education, died of cancer
on Oct. 12 on Mayne Island.
He was one of the most prolific contributors to the new discipline of adult
education.
He took a bachelor of arts degree
from the College of William and Mary
in Virginia in 1937. During World
War II he rose from private to captain
in the U.S. Army and served in the
American, European and Pacific
theatres.
In 1950 he took a master's degree in
arts at the College of William and
Mary and another master's degree one
year later from Columbia University in
New York. He earned his Ph.D. from
Columbia in 1952.
Besides adult education, his professional activities included rural
sociology. In his latter years his interest turned to historical cartography
where he is regarded as a pioneer.
Dr. Verner joined the UBC faculty
as chairman of adult education in
1961 and resigned as chairman to continue as a professor in adult education
in 1973. He took an early retirement
two years ago at the age of 60.
Another familiar face around the
campus, UBC's head carpenter Mel
Johnson collapsed and died suddenly
on Saturday, Oct. 20. He had been a
UBC employee for 23 years, involved
in many of the alterations campus
buildings have undergone in that
time.
Born in 1919, Mr. Johnson had
been an RCAF ground crew mechanic
during World War II. He joined the
University's physical plant department
as a carpenter in 1956, becoming head
carpenter 12 years ago in 1967.
He is survived by his wife, Edith.
Concerns about the use and total effect of having a Discovery Park on
UBC land were the subject of a
lengthy discussion at the University
Senate's October meeting.
Several student members of Senate
addressed questions about the proposed park, described at the last
Senate meeting, to Senate's chairman,
UBC president Douglas Kenny.
In replying to student senator Chris
Niwinski's question about whether or
not people living near the proposed
park, on University land south of 16th
Avenue, had been consulted, President Kenny replied that two years ago
he had made a general public statement that the subject of a discovery
park on the campus was under consideration. "The wide community in
general knew about it," the president
said. "It was no state secret."
Another student senator expressed
concern that if the discovery park is
successful, expansion of its facilities
would be inevitable. Would that expansion be on the endowment lands or
UBC land? President Kenny said that
there had been no discussion between
UBC people and the provincial
government about expansion of
Discovery Park. He presumed,
however, that because the two MLAs
for the Point Grey riding had publicly
expressed their opinion that the
University Endowment Lands would
be best kept in their natural state, the
government planned no expansion of
the discovery park into the UEL.
An Applied Science student senator
expressed the concern that teaching
standards would fall "when there's a
research facility right on the edge of
the campus that will take the teaching
staff away from teaching and office
time." Dr. Kenny, however, suggested
that his fear was unwarranted. "We
have some of the most stringent
policies at this University governing
outside professional activities. They
will apply to professors within this
community, and the full force of them
will apply, whether they're working at
Discovery Park or Ottawa or
Victoria... or any other place."
During the discussion, President
Kenny said he was delighted to see
enrolments up in both Arts and
Science this year, keeping a balance
between the technical and liberal arts
CONTINUED FROM P. 1
they took over on the UBC 27 after a
punt. Quarterback Dave Amer tried
for a touchdown on the first play with
an end-zone pass to John Pankratz,
but a leaping interception by Mark
Beecroft gave UBC the ball.
At 9:51 of the third quarter, Grant
kicked a field goal that gave SFU a 3-0
lead, and six minutes later Munro
equalized for UBC, his kick from the
19 just making it over the crossbar
after being partly blocked.
A 12-yard pass from Greg Clarkson
to Evan Jones from the SFU 45 late in
the final quarter put the Birds within
kicking distance of the Clan goal-line
again, and this time coach Smith
elected to go with punter Kevin
Konar, who got away his best punt of
the game. The ball was taken by
Pankratz 10 yards deep in the SFU end
zone and went for a game-winning
single    point.
Although the game was close, the
key statistics belong to the Thunderbirds. SFU's Amer completed 8 of 19
passes, Clarkson only 3 of 14 — yet the
Clarkson-Jones completion was the key
pass of the night. Amer threw one interception — the critical one to
Beecroft — and Clarkson threw none.
UBC halfback Dave Negrin was the
game's leading rusher with 88 yards,
and UBC topped SFU on total yards
rushing, 174 to 109.
The Shrum Bowl was resumed last
year after a break of seven years, UBC
taking the 1978 contest 22-14.

stressed.

In an attempt to ensure that full
student representation was made to
Senate, a proposal was presented
whereby Senate would nominate
representatives itself if no nominations
were forthcoming for students for individual faculties.
Senate's ad hoc committee on the
implementation of the Universities
Act suggested the new procedure to
get around the present arrangement
where a student seat remains vacant
until the next regular election when
no nomination is received for a student rep on Senate for a particular
faculty, and the incumbent is ineligible or unwilling to serve another term.
However, the proposal met with
some opposition from student
members of Senate. Student senator
Chris Niwinski told Senate that he and
other student senators felt the proposal was "unacceptable, although
they appreciated the intention of the
committee to ensure adequate
representation. Student representatives must come from the students,
elected by the students exclusively,"
he said.
The motion to institute the committee's proposal was tabled in order to
allow the student members of Senate
more time to discuss with the committee other possibilities for resolving the
problem.

Student elections to Senate and the
Board of Governors are coming up
and Senate received the schedule for
nominations and elections at its October meeting. Two full-time students
will be elected to sit as members of the
Board of Governors and 17 full-time
students will sit on Senate.
Nominations for these positions will
close at 4 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 21.
Election day wil be Tuesday, Jan. 22,
1980, with an advance poll held from
5 to 7 p.m. Monday, Jan. 21. Results
of the elections will not be announced
until at least 48 hours after the close of
balloting.
Nomination forms will be provided
by the Registrar's Office in the
General    Services    Administration
Building.

Three departments received
Senate's approval to change their official titles at the October meeting,
despite the protestations of Dr.
Charles Bourne.
The Department of Mineral
Engineering will now be called the
Department of Mining and Mineral
Process Engineering, which, according to Applied Science dean Martin
Wedepohl, more explicitly describes
the types of engineering education offered by the department.
The Department of Oral Surgery
has been changed to the Department
of Oral and Maxillo-facial Surgery
and the Department of Public and
Community Dental Health will be
known as the Department of Preventive and Community Dentistry.
However, Senate member Charles
Bourne opposed the changes. "Those
who are in the field know what the
department does; those who are not in
the field can guess at what the department does," he said. The name
change suggested for the Department
of Oral Surgery was "an absurdity" he
said. "I do not think Senate should encourage this proliferation of useless
words."
Dentistry dean Dr. Beagrie said that
the title of Oral and Maxillo-facial
Surgery brings the name of the
department into line with those in
faculties of dentistry in other parts of
Canada and the United States.
Senate voted to accept all three
name changes. UBCreports

Catching up with UBC people ..
Dr.  William G.  Wellington has
been elected a member and
designated a Fellow of the Explorer's
Club (New York and London) because
of the pioneering nature of his
research. An entomologist, Dr. Wellington holds a joint appointment in
the Department of Plant Science and
the   Institute   of   Animal   Resource
William Wellington
Ecology. The distinction acknowledges his many accomplishments
relating weather to insect behavior
and population dynamics.
One of the very few Canadians to
have been so honored, Dr. Wellington
joins distinguished company. Founded
early in this century, the Explorer's
Club at first honored the great polar
explorers, Shackleton, Amundsen,
Peary and Scott. Byrd and Lindbergh
also were members. The present
membership includes such notables as
mountaineer Sir Edmund Hillary,
astronaut Neil Armstrong, anthropologist Richard Leakey and
Nobel Laureates Konrad Lorenz and
Nikko Tinbergen.
Nine UBC faculty members have
recently been elected to fellowship in
the Royal Society of Canada for excellence in their fields of work.
The nine are among 60 distinguished Canadians to be honored
this year. The Royal Society, a national academy, recognizes high
distinction in the humanities, social
sciences and sciences. Total membership in the society is now 954.
Elected fellows in the humanities
and social sciences section are
Michael Ames, director of the
Museum of Anthropology at UBC;
George Archibald, a professor in the
Department of Economics; Charles
Bourne, professor of law and advisor
to UBC's president; and Alan Cairns,
professor of political science.
Elected fellows in the sciences section of the society are William
Casselman and Rafael Van Severen
Chacon, both professors in the
mathematics department; Philip
Hill, head of Mechanical Engineering; zoology professor Charles Krebs;
and Timothy Parsons, professor of
oceanography.
Two members of the UBC faculty
are on a three-member commission
established by the provincial government to determine whether it is safe to
mine uranium in British Columbia.
Dr. David Bates, professor of
health care and former dean of the
Faculty of Medicine, is chairman of
the commission which has been
holding public hearings throughout
the province and which has already
submitted an interim report on exploration for uranium deposits.
Another member of the commission is
Prof. James Murray of the Department of Geological Sciences.
The commission has, among other
things, been asked to consider the
safety problems which would arise for
workers and the general public if
uranium mining is permitted. It has
also been asked to advise the government on the future regulation and
jurisdictional problems associated
with uranium mining and development.
In its interim report on exploration
for uranium deposits, the commission
recommended that such exploration
be allowed to continue but that the activities of exploration companies be
subject to more stringent monitoring.
The commission's final report is expected in July, 1980.

Dr. Harriet Critchley of UBC's In
stitute of International Relations has
been named to a five-member federal
government committee that will study
the 10-year unification of the Canadian armed forces.
The committee is to determine
whether unification has been conducive to the effectiveness of the
armed forces in carrying out its assigned role. The committee will hold
public hearings across Canada and
visit units in Europe, the Middle East
and Cyprus.

Dr. John C. Brown, professor of
physiology in UBC's Faculty of
Medicine, was the recent recipient of
the Ernst Oppenheimer Award of the
U.S. Endocrine Society for distinguished and meritorious research in
the field of endocrinology.
Dr. Brown is the first Canadian to
receive the honor, which is awarded to
scientists under the age of 41. A UBC
faculty member since 1965, Dr.
Brown has made major contributions
to the field of gastrointestinal
physiology, including the discovery of
two polypeptide hormones found in
the duodenum. The Oppenheimer
award is the fifth prize Dr. Brown has
received for his research.

Dr. John N. Hlynka, assistant
dean of clinical pharmacy programs in
the Faculty of Pharmaceutical
Sciences, has recently returned from a
two-week speaking engagement in
New Zealand and Australia. As an invited participant of the Pan Pacific
Conference on Clinical Pharmacy, Dr.
Hlynka presented two papers and conducted five workshops on Drug Usage
Review in the two countries.
Information task force sets up shop
Settling into their new temporary
quarters upstairs in the Old Administration Building are four
members of the UBC staff whom few
would really envy.
Their job, for the next six months,
is to try to make some sense out of how
administrative information is gathered
and kept at UBC, and see where
streamlining of information systems is
necessary. Considering the size of the
University, and the variety of information systems which abound, that's a
big order.
Officially called the Information
Systems Task Force, the four members
are Dr. Jim Kennedy, on leave from
his regular post as director of UBC's
Computing Centre; John McMaster,
senior analyst with Institutional
Analysis and Planning; Robin Russell,
the database administrator for the
Computing Centre; and Fern Long,
systems analyst on loan from the
Department of Finance.
The task force isn't just looking at
information that's stored by computer
on campus. They're also considering
forms that are filled out by hand,
codes that are used by various departments and how information could be
better shared.
Dr. Kennedy, who's gained the title
of Special Assistant to the President
during the six month study, gave as an
example of the kind of situation now
in existence the variety of code
numbers for a department.
The Registrar's Office, he suggested, has an assigned number for,
say the Department of Economics.
They use this number when listing
final grades on a student's record, or
for controlling the number of students
in a course. The finance department
assigns a totally different number to
the Department of Economics, and
uses that number for monthly expenditure statements or payroll. The key
desk in Physical Plant assigns a
number different from the first two
for its needs. Therefore, none of these
information systems is easily compatible.
Each University department, Dr.
Kennedy said, to give another example, keeps its own record of an
employee's vacation credits or sick
benefits. If that employee transfers to
another department, that information
must be relayed as well. There are no
central records. With almost 3,400
employees, not to mention teaching
staff, at the University, and many
hourly and seasonal employees, that
could be a problem.
A small item, but indicative of the
type of concern the task force is looking at, is the manner in which long
distance calls are listed on each
department's computerized monthly
ledger which comes from the finance
department. Now listed in order of
date the calls were made, it might
make more sense for calls to be listed
by telephone number the calls were
made from, Dr. Kennedy suggested.
No one has ever had the responsibility
for a University-wide overview before,
however.
"The University information
systems have grown piecemeal over the
years, but they've not been designed to
make it easy to share information from
one department to another," Dr. Kennedy said.
Now that the rapid expansion of the
University has slowed, UBC, it would
seem, has time to take a breath and
look at how some of its internal procedures work. The Universities Coun
cil of B.C. has presented questions
which force the administrative sections of UBC to gather more and more
information. The Computing Centre
and the Data Processing Centre have
recently merged.
"There've been these kinds of unifying concerns taking place," Dr. Kennedy said. "This looks like the period
to stop and have a look at what we're
doing and where we're going."
The task force members intend to
spend the first two months of their
allotted time finding out from various
departments what sorts of problems
and improvements they see and the
next three months following up on
specifics. So far they've visited Housing, Physical Plant, Employee Relations and Purchasing, as well as many
of the deans of faculties.
Their findings will be made into a
report in the final month with recommendations for improvements and will
be presented to the President's Office.
