Early decision on faculty salary award sought
A binding arbitration award on UBC
faculty salaries for 1982-83 is now under
review by the Compensation Stabilization
Program (CSP), the body established by
the provincial government to implement a
wage-control scheme for the public sector.
The award, handed down last week by
Vancouver lawyer Ronald Holmes, was sent
to the CSP in the form of a submission
worked out in consultations between the
University and the Faculty Association.
The arbitration award calls for a nine-
per-cent salary increase across the board,
plus an additional three percent for "career
progress." The increases would be
retroactive to July 1.
University and Faculty Association
officials expressed the hope that the
submission to the CSP within a few days of
the award being handed down would lead
to an early decision on faculty salaries.
The campus local of the Office and
Technical Employees Union, which
bargains for a group of employees in UBC's
Department of Physical Plant, has ratified
a tentative wage agreement reached with
the University last week.
The two-year agreement calls for an 8
per cent salary increase in the first year
and 5.25 per cent increase in the second
year. The first-year salary increase is
retroactive to April 1.
The agreement has yet to be ratified by
UBC's Board of Governors and must be
submitted to the provincial Compensation
Stabilization Program for review.
UBC Registrar Ken Young says daytime
winter session enrolment for 1982-83 could
exceed 25,000 students for the first time in
UBC's history.
He said his office has now issued just
over 28,600 registration authorizations,
1,000 more than were issued at the same
time last year.
"Not all the authorizations will translate
into registered students," he added, "but
there appear to be substantial increases in
the number of new students entering first-
year programs and in the number of
students who are unclassified, that is, not
on a degree program."
The dismal summer employment picture
has resulted in an increased number of
students seeking assistance under the B.C.
Student Assistance program. For details,
see story in column four below.
And if you're considering a part-time job
this winter to bolster a depleted bank
account, you'll find some helpful hints on
where to apply in the story that begins in
column one on this page.
The summer of '82 wasn't exactly a
vintage season for jobs for students . . .
which means that some bank balances may
be a bit short of money for tuition, rent
and other expenses in the 1982 83 winter
The solution to the problem might be an
on- or off-campus part-time job to provide
a little cash to make ends meet.
UBC Reports did a survey of UBC units
that list or offer part-time jobs. Here's
what we found out.
Your first stop ought to be the Canada
Employment Centre in Brock Hall, which
centre supervisor Jill Weber says is "the
best one-stop shopping centre for part-time
work on campus."
Her employment advisors have been
drumming up part-time jobs both on and
off campus for several weeks and the centre
also does the hiring for such campus units
as the University Library and the Graduate
Student Centre.
Check the postings on the boards at the
centre and then ask at the counter for
more information.
If you've been offered work-study as part
of your B.C. Student Assistance Program
(BCSAP) package by the Awards Office,
you must take your authorization to the
Canada Employment Centre, where a
special section has been set up to deal with
the work-study program.
If you have not or will not be applying
for aid under the BCSAP and want to get
in on the work-study program, you must
still complete a BCSAP application, since
eligibility is based on assessed financial
need. Applications are available at the
Awards Office in the General Services
Administration Building.
When you fill out the application, make
sure you mark it "Work-Study Only" in red
on the front page. You're reminded, too,
that to be eligible for the program you
must be a B.C. resident as defined by the
provincial Ministry of Education.

While most people were still lying on the beach basking in the last of the
summer sunshine, members of the Friends of the Botanical Garden were busy
choosing plants for the annual fall sale of indoor plants, which takes place Sept.
15-17. The sale is being held at the Botanical Garden Office and Educational
Centre, 6501 Northwest Marine Drive, from noon to 5 p.m. on Sept. 15 and
noon to 3 p.m. on Sept. 16 and 17. Pictured above surrounded by possible sale

Adult ed program tops survey
UBC has one of the best graduate
programs in adult education in North
America in the opinion of professors of "
adult education who participated in a
recent survey by the Learning Resources
Network in Kansas.
The professors rated the University of
Wisconsin's program as the best in the
United States and then selected two
Canadian institutions — UBC and the
Ontario Institute of Studies in Education
— for the second and third places in a list
of top graduate programs in the field.
The UBC graduate program in adult
education is offered through the
Department of Administrative, Adult and
Higher Education in the Faculty of
The publication of the results of the
survey in the Aug. 4 edition of the
Chronicle of Higher Education marked the
second time this summer that UBC has
been singled out for kudos for one of its
academic programs.
Accounting professors across Canada
have rated UBC as the best school in the
country for accounting studies in a survey
conducted by the Institute of Chartered
Accountants of Alberta.
UBC also topped a second poll which
asked for the professors' impressions of the
quality of students graduating in

UBC has put in place emergency
measures designed to aid students who met
the July 2 deadline for submission of
applications for financial aid under the

Awards Office director Byron Hender
told UBC Reports the student aid situation
at UBC has been complicated by a number
of factors — a poor summer employment
situation which has resulted in an increased
number of applications for financial aid
and delays by the provincial government in
issuing documents required under the
Under the BCSAP, full-time single
students are eligible for a maximum of
$3,800 in an academic year — $1,800 as a
federal loan and $2,000 as a non-repayable
provincial grant. The upper limit for
students with dependents is $4,200, with
the province adding $400 to the grant
"Those students who have heard from
Victoria have received only the loan
portion of the aid package," Mr. Hender
said. In order to negotiate the loan with a
bank, students must have certificates
signed by the Registrar's Office.
A Canada Student Loan table will be set
up in the War Memorial Gym, where
students must go to complete their
registration this week. Next week students
will have to go to the Registrar's Office in
the General Services Administration
Building to have the certificates signed.
Mr. Hender said that the number of
applications for aid under the BCSAP was
up by about 60 per cent on July 2, the

UBC impact on GVRD economy
impressive but understated
UBC contributes more than $467 million
a year to the economy of the Greater
Vancouver Regional District, according to
a report prepared by the Office of
Institutional Analysis and Planning.
The report shows that the University is
responsible directly for an estimated $235
million of expenditures, and that it
provides more than 7,500 full-time jobs
within the GVRD. Indirectly, UBC is
responsible for an additional 7,425 jobs
and another $232 million in spending.
Analyst Carol Gibson, who prepared the
report, said the methodology used provides
a built-in understatement and that the
actual economic impact is likely greater
than indicated.
In the introduction to her report, Ms.
Gibson notes that the economic impact of
a university should be considered along
with the traditional factors of teaching,
research and community service.
"It is equally valid to consider a
university as a service industry that
provides income opportunities, creates
employment and stimulates business within
a community."
The report shows that in the 1980-81
fiscal year, UBC as an institution spent
more than $64 million on goods and
services within the GVRD. Other UBC-
related direct expenditure included more
than $118 million by faculty and staff,
close to $50 million by students, and
almost $4 million by visitors to the
University, for a 'direct' total of
Expenditure by faculty and staff is
broken down into a dozen categories,
showing that the single biggest expense was
for housing, which took 18 per cent of
after-tax income. Food took 16 per cent,
and transportation 12. Clothing was a
distant fourth at 6 per cent.
Since this $235 million goes as income to
local residents and generates more jobs and
additional rounds of spending, the indirect
impact is determined through the use of an
economic multiplier. The magnitude of the
multiplier depends upon factors such as
industrial or commercial diversity and the
Ms. Gibson used an economic multiplier
of 1.99 to determine the additional
economic impact of the University on the
GVRD, based on an inter-industry study
conducted within the region by Dr. H.
Craig Davis of UBC's School of Community
and Regional Planning.
The 1.99 multiplier shows that UBC is
responsible, indirectly, for 7,425 jobs
within the GVRD in addition to the 7,500
jobs actually at the University. The
additional economic stimulus is $232
million, for a total of more than $467
The report also notes that as an
employer of 7,500 persons, UBC ranks
within the top 10 companies in British
President Douglas Kenny said the report
clearly demonstrates the economic
importance of UBC to the community.
New survey aims to detail
use of Endowment Lands
A new survey to determine how
extensively the University Endowment
Lands are used for teaching and research
has been launched by the parks
department of the Greater Vancouver
Regional District.
The new survey will update a similar
review of UEL teaching and research
carried out a number of years ago by a
graduate student in UBC's Faculty of
A questionnaire has been sent to UBC
department chairmen, together with a
covering letter signed by GVRD parks
department administrator Richard Hankin
and Dr. Roy Taylor, director of UBCs
Botanical Garden, who also chairs a UBC
technical committee on the endowment
lands set up by graduate studies dean Dr.
Peter Larkin.
Additional copies of the questionnaire
are available from the GVRD parks
department, 2294 West 10th Ave.,
731-1155, local 255.
The GVRD and UBC have been
discussing plans and co-operative projects
for a proposed Endowment Lands Regional
Park over the past two years. The technical
committee chaired by Dr. Taylor was
established to advise on the long-range
park plan, to facilitate research projects
and to establish guidelines for UBC
teaching and research use of the
endowment lands.
The technical committee has reached
agreement on a suggested name for the
park — Salish Forest Regional Park —
and has adopted a set of guidelines for its
use for research and training by UBC staff
and students.
The GVRD parks department has also
provided funds for a number of research
projects within the proposed regional park,
including a study of the Camosun Bog
between Camosun Street and Imperial
Road and a study of bird life in the park.
All the studies are being carried out by
UBC students and faculty.
The proposal to create a 608-hectare
(1,520-acre) regional park on the
undeveloped section of the endowment
lands arose out of a 1977 report
commissioned by the provincial
government, which manages the lands.
The report proposed "to combine a
highly accessible and prominent forest site
with varied resources of the University of
B.C. campus itself and the Marine Drive
Foreshore Park, including the beaches and
the north arm of the Fraser River."
The proposed boundary of the park
includes two large blocks of land south of
16th Ave. and north of Chancellor
Boulevard, which would be linked by a
corridor from 16th Ave. to Chancellor .
The provincial government, however,
has never acted on the recommendations
made in the 1977 report and the ways in
which the lands will be used in the future
remains uncertain.
abuse will cost
drivers $25
The "walking campus" concept at UBC
is no longer just a concept.
Owners of vehicles found inside the
pedestrian area are now liable to fines of
$25, whether the vehicle is moving or
The UBC Board of Governors approved
the penalty at its June meeting, backing a
proposal by Al Hutchinson, director of
Traffic and Security.
Mr. Hutchinson said abuse of the
"walking campus" area had been growing,
increasing the danger to pedestrians.
UBC's traffic and parking regulations
have been revised, and Section 9 on the
"walking campus" has a sub-section
defining the region which constitutes the
campus pedestrian area. Barriers and new
signs have been installed at entrances to
these areas.
The pedestrian area is bounded by East
and West Mall, and by Agronomy Road on
the south. The northern boundary is along
Crescent Road between East Mall and
Main Mall, and along Memorial Road
from Main Mall to West Mall.
East Mall is now one-way southbound
between Crescent Road and Agronomy
Road, and is open to emergency and
service vehicles only. Agronomy and
Crescent roads remain two-way streets and
are open to all traffic. West Mall is a two-
way artery and open to all traffic between
Marine Drive and Memorial Road,
allowing access to parking, but the mall
becomes one-way from Memorial Road to
Agronomy Road for emergency and service
vehicles only. (West Mall is now one-way
southbound between University Boulevard
and Agronomy Road, and one-way
northbound from University Boulevard to
Memorial Road.)
Another change affecting drivers this fall
is the elimination of parking on Crescent
Road. Parking was permitted there during
construction of the Fraser River Parkade,
which opened in May, and accommodates
730 cars. Holders of staff/faculty decals
may use the parkade at no extra charge.
Explosion leads to revision of regulations
UBC has revised its regulations for the
preparation of chemical wastes for disposal
as the result of an explosion that did
$2,000 worth of damage to the south
campus Chemical Waste Disposal Facility
on July 22.
The revised regulations emphasize the
need for clearly identifying and labelling
all chemical wastes destined for disposal at
the UBC facility, which is operated by the
Department of Physical Plant.
The cause of the July explosion was a
chemical compound containing
nitroglycerine, which was being disposed of
because it had exceeded the shelf life
recommended by the manufacturer. The
plastic bag containing the compound did
not indicate that one of its constituents was
nitroglycerine, a highly explosive
The resulting explosion in the south
campus incinerator damaged its interior
walls, dislodged its emission stack and blew
the incinerator door off its hinges. No one
was injured.
The revised regulations have been
distributed to deans, department heads
and administrative assistants, who have
been asked to ensure that all staff involved
in chemical waste disposal are aware of the
Anyone wishing a copy of the new
regulations should contact Robert Bray,

Two faculty
members die
on Aug. 23
Two members of the UBC faculty — one
active and one retired — died on Aug. 23.
They are Dr. James M. Robinson, an
assistant professor in the Department of
Health Care and Epidemiology, and
professor emeritus of Education Dr. F.
Henry Johnson, a UBC graduate who
played a major role in the development of
the curriculum in the Faculty of Education
during 16 years at UBC.
Dr. Robinson, who died at the age of
47, was a graduate of Queen's University in
Belfast, Northern Ireland, where he was
awarded the degrees of Bachelor of
Medicine, Surgery and Obstetrics.
He came to Canada in 1961 as a senior
intern at Shaughnessy Hospital in
Vancouver and was director of provincial
public health units in Prince George and
Maple Ridge before joining the UBC
Faculty of Medicine in 1975 as chairman of
the division of public health practice in the
Department of Health Care and
He served as president of the B.C.
branch of the Canadian Public Health
Association in 1973-74 and was an active
member of a number of UBC committees
and a consultant to UBC's Health Sciences
Centre Hospital.
Prof. Johnson, who died at the age of
74, had a varied career as an educator
before joining the UBC faculty in 1956 as
director of elementary teacher education
and professor of the history of education.
He taught for 21 years in B.C.
elementary and secondary schools and at
the Victoria Normal School before joining
the provincial Ministry of Education as coordinator of teacher education.
In addition to playing a major role in
the development of the elementary
curriculum at UBC from 1956 until his
retirement in 1972, Dr. Johnson was the
editor of a number of school readers and
wrote three scholarly books, including
histories of public education in Canada
and B.C. He also served terms as president
of the B.C. Historical Association and the
Canadian Association of Professors of
Dr. Johnson held the degrees of Bachelor
and Master of Arts from UBC and
Bachelor and Doctor of Paediatrics from
the University of Toronto. He served as a
member of UBC's Senate for 11 years.
Painting display
opens today
An exhibition of traditional and modern
Chinese paintings by artist Ta-Tung
(David) Hui opens today (Sept. 8) in the
auditorium of the Asian Centre, and
continues until Sept. 12.
Mr. Hui will show watercolors and oil
paintings in both oriental and western
styles, along with some new works using the
oriental abstract techniques of spray-ink,
sr ray-smoke, splash-ink and acrylic on silk.
The exhibit is open from 11 a.m. to 6:30
p.m. daily, and Mr. Hui will be on hand
giving painting demonstrations and
occasional performances on the yang-chin,
a traditional Chinese musical instrument.
Mr. Hui has held exhibits in more than
40 countries in North America, Europe
and Asia in the past six years. In addition
to his painting, he has written several
books and has been active in educational
The exhibit is sponsored by UBC's
Institute of Asian Research. UBC Reports September 8, 1982
Helen Dunbar, an employee in UBC's Centre for Continuing Education, retired
at the end of August after 20 years of service on the campus. Mrs. Dunbar
operated the Xerox 9400 copier pictured above, producing about 250,000 copies
of material for the centre each month.

deadline for submission of applications. By
the end of August, 5,200 applications had
been submitted, an increase of some 38 per
cent over last year.
"In previous years," Mr. Hender said,
"the BCSAP was open ended to the extent
that aid was forthcoming if the University
approved the application. This year, there
have been indications that there may be
some cuts in the grant portion of the
program, that is, students may not get all
the money they hoped for.
"What's still not clear is whether the cuts
are to be made across the board, on a
percentage-of-award basis, or by refusing
money to those who apply after a certain
He said he hoped the provincial
government would consult with the
universities before making a decision on
cuts in the grant portion of the BCSAP
However, Mr. Hender added, the
University has made additional funds
available to provide student aid in
"The Board of Governors added $1
million to UBC bursary funds for the
current year and during the summer they
approved additional funds totalling
$500,000 to provide increased opportunities
for summer jobs on campus ($250,000) and
for the work-study program during the
winter session ($250,000). The provincial
government also provides $175,000 for the
winter session work-study program."
Bursary money ranging from $300 to
$750 has gone to BCSAP applicants who
are married or who have dependents and
live off-campus, as well as to those who are
single, mature and not living with parents
and graduate students.
Work-study has been offered to students
who were unemployed during the summer
and to those whose savings were
considerably less than expected. Another
group of students offered work-study were
those who had needs in excess of the
maximum they would receive under
Mr. Hender emphasized that students
who had been authorized to seek on-
campus employment under the work-study
program should go the Canada
Employment Centre in Brock Hall as soon
as possible to determine whether a job
exists to match their skills.
"Many of jobs offered in UBC
departments require special skills and will
be hard to fill," Mr. Hender said. "As a
result, a large number of students may be
chasing a limited number of jobs."
He said work-study had been offered to
more than 700 students who have also
applied for the BCSAP package. The total
number of proposals received under the
work-study program will provide jobs for
between 750 and 800 students, he added.

in campus residences, at the SUBWAY in
the Student Union Building and in other
campus food outlets.
There are about 100 positions available,
but the department will hire about 300
students who share shifts to fit the part-
time jobs into the students' academic
To apply for food service jobs, visit the
food units at Totem Park and Place Vanier
Residences, the SUBWAY or the central
food services office on the lower floor of
the Ponderosa cafeteria on the West Mall.
UBC's Athletic Office will hire up to 150
students this year to serve as referees and
administrators for the campus intramural
and recreation program. Apply at the
Athletic Office in the War Memorial Gym.
Pay rates for the refereeing jobs vary
between $5 and $7.50 an hour, depending
on your level of expertise. If you hold a
referee's certificate, you'll get the top rate
of $7.50, if you attend a referee's clinic run
by the Athletic Office, you'll get $6, and
you'll get $5 if you don't have a certificate
and don't attend the clinic.
The Athletic Office also pays honoraria
ranging from $300 to $500 for
administrative work associated with the
intramural and recreational program.
The Alma Mater Society also has some
jobs available in The Pit in the basement of
the Student Union Building and in the
Gallery Lounge on the main floor of SUB.
Apply directly to the managers of each of
these facilities if you're interested. There's
a fair turnover in personnel for these part-
time jobs, apparently, and it pays to keep
asking about openings.
The AMS has also started a student
employment program of its own this year.
It's located in Room 238 of SUB or call
Terry Jackson, 228-3971.
The qualifications of students registered
with the program will be advertised in
campus departments and offices and with
businesses near the campus. The AMS will
pay the student's salary and then collect
from the employer so that there's no delay
in being paid.
Faculty members wishing more
information about the following research
grants should consult the Research
Administration Grant Deadlines circular
which is available in departmental and
faculty offices. If further information is
