International meeting
honors UBC scientist
Dr. Donald Brunette of UBC's
Faculty of Dentistry will be honored in
Osaka, Japan Friday (June 20) by the
International Association for Dental
Research.
He'll receive the 1980 Proctor and
Gamble Award for research for
unravelling basic threads leading to
an understanding of why many Canadians lose their teeth.
The threads of this case are literally
the periodontal ligaments that join
teeth to the jaw.
Periodontal disease — diseases of
the gum or bone that support teeth —
is the greatest dental problem in
Canada. More healthy adult teeth are
lost because of periodontal disease
than are lost through tooth decay.
"Preventing periodontal disease
would be among the most dramatic
AUCE votes to
accept offer
The 1,300-member Association of
University and College Employees
(AUCE), Local 1, has voted 78 per
cent in favor of a new two-year contract with the University, running
from April 1, 1980, to March 31,
1982.
The memorandum of agreement
was signed by the union and the
University Tuesday.
The contract gives AUCE workers
an increase of 10 per cent in the first
year and 9.5 in the second.
The largest union on campus, the
1,700-member Local 16 of the Canadian Union of Public Employees
(CUPE), ratified a one-year contract
on June 8. It provides for a general
wage increase of 10 per cent, and expires next March 31.
Negotiations are continuing with
the International Union of Operating
Engineers and the Office and Technical Employees Union.
advances in dental health in Canada,"
Dr. Brunette said. "But this can't occur without knowing more about how
periodontal disease comes about."
The award he receives Friday is for
developing new techniques to study
the cells making up the periodontal
ligament and for a series of
discoveries.
The most abundant protein making
up the periodontal ligament is collagen — long, fibrous material that
plays a key role in connecting teeth to
the jaw. Collagen is made, broken
down and replaced in a continuous cycle.
In one of his discoveries, Dr.
Brunette showed that some unusual
epithelial cells in the ligament can
produce substances which inhibit the
breakdown of collagen.
Most epithelial cells line the internal and external surfaces of the body.

DOOMSDAY
looms for ,
UBC library
Doomsday — the day when UBC's existing library system runs
out of space for new books and materials — is less than a decade
away.
UBC should make an immediate start on a building program
to create more room for the normal growth of book and other
collections until 1990 and to provide adequate space for some
other library functions.
The cost of new construction to stave off the looming crisis for
UBC's library system is estimated as at least $25 million.
These are the main findings of a president's committee on
library space requirements which has submitted an interim
report to President Douglas Kenny after having spent more than
a year studying UBC's present library situation.
Final report due in fall
The broadly based, 33-member committee, which is chaired
by Dean Peter Larkin, the head of the Faculty of Graduate
Studies, has also been asked to prepare a comprehensive plan
for meeting the space needs of the library and to recommend to
President Kenny priorities for library construction.
Dean Larkin told UBC's Senate last month that the committee expects to make priority recommendations later this year in
a final report based on a series of technical studies that will provide more detailed information on the feasibility and costs of
two construction plans broadly outlined in the committee's interim report.
President Kenny told UBC's Board of Governors at its
meeting on June 3 that the technical studies are now underway
under the direction of Graham Argyll, head of facilities planning on the UBC campus.
University community asked
for thoughts and ideas
If you have any thoughts or ideas about the future of UBC's
library system, the President's Committee on Library Space Requirements will welcome them.
Dean Peter Larkin, the head of UBC's Faculty of Graduate
Studies and chairman of the committee, plans to prepare a final
report on library space requirements by the fall when technical
studies on the feasibility and costs of two construction plans
outlined in an interim report are completed.
Dean Larkin has asked that suggestions be sent to him in
writing at his office in the Faculty of Graduate Studies in the
General Services Administration Building, 2075 Wesbrook
Mall.
Here are the details of the two plans proposed by the Larkin
committee, both of which involve the complete renovation and
redesign of UBC's Main Library.
PLAN A. This plan would involve a major addition or additions to the Main Library and the possible construction of a new
library building on a central site, "perhaps as part of a 'core
renewal' of the site presently occupied by the Mathematics,
Geography and Old Administration Buildings," the report says.
A scheme for connecting the Main and Sedgewick Libraries,
proposed when the latter building was built, might be reexamined, the committee has suggested.
Plan A, in addition to suggesting the renovation and redesign
of the Main Library, proposes additions to existing branch
libraries whenever there is an opportunity to do so, as in the proposals to add to the MacMillan Building, which houses the
Faculties of Agricultural Sciences and Forestry, the Scarfe
Building for Education and the east wing of the Biological
Sciences Building.
New science library proposed
Plan A, the committee comments, "would have the merit of
maintaining geographical configurations, but would pose
serious problems of siting and construction in the Main Library
area."
PLAN B also calls for renovation and redesign of the Main
Library as well as an addition to that building on a smaller scale
than the addition envisioned in Plan A.
The new element in Plan B would be a large new Science
Library at the south end of the main campus in the vicinity of
the complex of buildings which house various departments of
the Faculty of Applied Science. This building, the report says,
would incorporate some of the existing branch libraries.
Plan B, says the report, "would give considerable relief to the
Main Library problem of space and would be responsive to
substantial user needs in science-oriented departments and
faculties. There would be a change in present user patterns."
Underlying the two plans are three major conclusions reached
by the committee related to problems and policies in planning

New director named for
UBC Computing Centre
UBC Botanical Garden staffers Susan Johnson, left, and Susan Munro hold
trophies associated with the Dorothy Hansell Award, an honor conferred by the
American Association of Botanical Gardens and Arboreta on the UBC garden
for its publication Plantae Occidentalis: 200 Years of Botanical Art in B.C.,
prepared for a display that opened in April last year in the campus Museum of
Anthropology. Both Ms. Johnston, who worked on the design and concept of the
publication, and Ms. Munro, who co-authored the book's text, worked closely
with Botanical Garden director Dr. Roy Taylor on its production. Dorothy
Hansell Awards are made to organizations which display outstanding writing or
graphic design. The Plantae Occidentalis display has been on a cross-Canada
tour in the past year and has now returned to the west coast, where it can be seen
in the Provincial Museum in Victoria from June 14 to Aug. 16.
Alvin G. Fowler, a Chilliwack-born
graduate of the University of B.C.,
will become director of the
University's Computing Centre July 1.
Mr. Fowler, who is currently
associate director of the UBC centre,
succeeds Prof. James Kennedy, who
has been named vice-president, University services, and who will continue
to have overall responsibility for Computing Centre policies as part of his
larger administrative duties.
"Mr. Fowler has played a central
role in the development of the Computing Centre during his years as
associate director," Dr. Kennedy said,
"and I look forward to continuing to
work with him as we both assume new
duties."
The UBC Computing Centre is one
of the most advanced facilities of its
kind in Canada and provides a wide
range of services for teaching,
research and administrative purposes.
Mr. Fowler, 45, who is registered as
a professional engineer in B.C.,
graduated from UBC in 1958 with the
degree of Bachelor of Applied Science. He earned the degree of Master
of Science in reactor physics at the
University of Birmingham in England
in 1959.
Before joining UBC in 1963 as the
Computing Centre's chief analyst, Mr.
Fowler was a research scientist for
Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd. in
Chalk River, Ont. He has been
associate director of the UBC centre
since 1971.
He is also an honorary associate
professor in the UBC Department of
Computer Science and president-elect
of the Canadian Information Proces-
ing Society.

Two   internationally-known   sports
CCE summer program begins June 28
The first in a summer-long
smorgasbord of courses and workshops
for people of all ages begins June 28 at
UBC.
Nearly 100 programs have been
organized by the Centre for Continuing Education, with the emphasis this
year on the whole family and activities
to involve all ages.
For instance, How to Enjoy the
Great Outdoors is a day-long Saturday
workshop for the whole family who
want to go camping for the first time.
The session includes a morning field
trip, map reading and a field trip to
see a range of camping equipment.
The centre has a number of other
one-day events planned for this summer to try and encourage people to
come on-campus and discover the
many attractions and activities happening at UBC during the summer.
Changes won't affect UBC plans
Neither of the pension plans foi
UBC faculty and employed staff will
be affected by recently proposed
changes in provincial government
plans for civil servants, teachers and
college employees.
The changes proposed by the provincial government will increase
employee contributions to pension
plans by .5 per cent and limit indexing
of pensions to eight per cent a year. At
present, civil service pensions are tied
to the consumer price index and are
adjusted every three months, a scheme
known as open-ended indexing.
The plan for faculty at UBC, called
a money-purchase plan, operates
under a trust agreement between the
University and the plan's board of
trustees. The agreement complies with
certain sections of the federal Pension
Benefits Standards Act of the federal
government dealing with investments.
The UBC employed-staff plan is a
fixed-benefit plan operated by a
board of directors, with the University
responsible for investment of funds.
Both plans include some provision
for indexing.
UBC near top in medical survey
UBC ranked second in Canada in
terms of the percentage of women
enrolled in first-year medicine in
1979-80, according to statistics recently released by the Association of Canadian Medical Schools.
Women made up 48.5 per cent of
the first-year UBC medical class in
1979-80, according to the association's
journal, Forum. Only McMaster
University in Hamilton, Ont., with a
female enrolment of 57 per cent in the
first year was higher than UBC.
The Forum statistics covered 16
Canadian medical schools. Following
McMaster and UBC were the University of Montreal with a female enrolment of 45.3 per cent, Laval University with 41 per cent, the University of
Sherbrooke with 40.9 per cent and
Memorial University with 39.7 per
cent.
Exploring the World Around Us is
an innovative one-day field trip for
adults and children over eight years. It
will be conducted by nature enthusiast
Trish Keays, who has studied forestry,
fish and wildlife management, and
written about environmental education.
One of the special one-day events
planned for families during the summer is an old-fashioned garden party,
complete with fashion show of Cana-
diana costumes, and a parade of antique cars.
The garden party will be held on
the grounds of Cecil Green Park July
22 from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. Everyone is
invited to come in costume.
In addition, the Centre for Continuing Education has compiled a list
of kids' activities going on in the area
of UBC this summer. For course registrants, a day care centre for children
aged three to six years is being administered by the centre.
For the first time this year, the centre offers week-long learning packages
of three courses which meet for five
consecutive days. The courses cover a
range of topics including the arts,
social sciences, history and applied
sciences; the culture of the past and
present, and some of the important
social and political issues of today.
Other courses range from a five-
session morning course on genealogy,
to an excursion to Seattle July 28-Aug.

The Ring of the Niebelung. Lectures
about the work, both in Vancouver
and Seattle, are part of the study tour.

medicine physicians, Drs. Jack Taunton and Douglas Clement, have joined
the UBC faculty to spearhead the
development of a new B.C. Sports
Medicine Centre.
The pair, who will move their
medical practice in Richmond to the
campus, will have joint appointments
in the Department of Family Practice
in the Faculty of Medicine and in the
School of Physical Education and
Recreation in the Faculty of Education.
Dr. Peter Grantham, head of the
family practice department, said the
centre will function in three areas. It
will provide sports health service to the
community and will act as a referral
centre for the province "for athletes as
well as those who are just starting out
on an exercise program." Included in
this service will be fitness testing which
is carried out in the John M.
Buchanan Fitness and Research Area
in UBC's Aquatic Centre.
The centre will also be used to train
students in medicine, rehabilitation
medicine, nutrition and physical
education, and it will be used for
research.
"The centre will be able to take advantage of the depth that UBC represents. It has the only school of
medicine in the province. It is also,"
Dr. Grantham said, "the only University granting degrees in
physiotherapy."
» * *
Dr. Donald W. Paty will become
the new head of the Division of
Neurology in UBC's Faculty of
Medicine and at the Vancouver
General Hospital July 1.
He is coming to Vancouver with his
research team from the University of
Western Ontario where he has
developed an outstanding research
program on multiple sclerosis, a
disease of the central nervous system.
Supporting the group's work in
Vancouver will be the federal Medical
Research Council and the Multiple
Sclerosis Society of Canada.
Key grants have been made by two
local foundations. The Woodward
Foundation is giving $475,000 and the
Vancouver Foundation $50,000.
The foundation money will be for
equipment, especially for a new exotic
machine called a fluorescence activated cell sorter (FACS). FACS will
allow the team to analyse cells in a way
unavailable before.
Although many of Dr. Paty's duties
will be at VGH, he will also be active
at the acute care unit at the Health
Sciences Centre Hospital at UBC,
where his research will take place.
New head of UBC's Department of
Psychiatry is Dr. Neil J. Yorkston of
London, England.
Dr. Yorkston is consultant psychiatrist at the Bethlem Royal and
Maudsley Hospitals, honorary consultant psychiatrist at King's College and
Friern Hospitals, and a teacher at the
University of London.
His appointment is effective July 1.
He succeeds Dr.  D.J.  Watterson,
acting head of the department since
the resignation of Dr. Milton Miller on
June 3, 1978.
Dr. Yorkston has had a wide-
ranging career. Before specializing in
psychiatry, he trained and worked in
internal medicine, pediatrics and
tropical medicine.
Dr. Yorkston's list of research
papers reflects a wide range of topics,
including bronchial asthma, neurosis,
and schizophrenia. His largest joint
project was to compare the natural
history of neurosis with the course of
illness in patients given either of two
leading kinds of psychotherapy. UBCreports

UBC student's second
novel published in UK
When even the hated rejection slips
include positive feedback about your
writing, it might be advisable to quit
your job and write full-time.
It may not work for everyone, but
for Roger Mitton, it has so far resulted
in the publication of two novels in the
past six years.
Mr. Mitton is a graduate student in
creative writing at UBC, studying for
his Master of Fine Arts degree and
working on his third novel.
April 24 was the official publishing
date for his second novel, Master and
Son, in England by Robert Hale Ltd.
It was available in Canada in mid-
May distributed by General Publishing Ltd.
Now 33 years of age, Mr. Mitton
received his B.Sc. in biochemistry
from Liverpool University in 1968,
worked in the pharmaceutical industry for several years, and discovered he just was not interested in
science.
He'd always been interested in
creative writing and reading and he
began to write short stories in the
evenings.
"I knew if I was going to write a
novel I needed to do it full-time —
and I felt I could... I felt I had what it
takes," he commented.
"I had short stories published and
had a story read over the radio," he
said.
"In fact it's probably easier to get a
novel published than a short story," he
believes. "It's just a long grind to get it
written."
His first novel, called Thirteen
Days, was published in 1978 after two
years' work while his second novel has
taken a year and a half to write.
Mr. Mitton came to Canada in
September to take creative writing at
UBC. "There are not many universities that offer graduate courses in
that area. In fact, in England I don't
think there are any. It's regarded as
frivolous," he said.
"After I applied for the program I
was offered a graduate fellowship
which will allow me to live during the
two years of the course," he said.
Only 12 people are accepted into
creative writing at the graduate level
each year.
How do you go about writing a
novel? "Well, first I have a general
idea of a plot...and I do a skeleton
beforehand. Then I do a quick first
draft.
"At the end of that I know how the
story is going to end. Then I write the
second draft. That's the long part.
"Obviously you have to have
something to say to write a novel. I get
up in the morning and try to start
work by 9 a.m. This is my job now. I
have to pay the rent.
"When 1 was accepted into UBC I
had just finished my second book and
I really needed something to live on
until money started to come in from
that book. It was lucky it worked out
the way it did," he said.
But why back to university? "I had
been working in isolation. I didn't
know any other writers. It helps to get
feedback from the other writers in the
novel workshop I'm taking here," he
explained.
"That has really helped me. Before,
I didn't know much about the technical aspects of writing. Now that I'm
learning more in that line I'm perhaps
more adventurous in my writing than
I was before.
"The next one will be better," he
added with a grin.
His latest novel takes place aboard a
Norwegian freighter which travels the
world. Master and Son takes readers
on one of these voyages and introduces
them to the captain and crew members and their "lives and loves, hopes
and fears."
Mr. Mitton has travelled in Europe
and has also worked at sea, so his
background is well-researched.
His first book is set in Portugal and
is a novel of "political and social intrigue."
"All three are completely different.
The third is set in Vancouver and
follows one man in a 24-hour period,"
said Mr. Mitton.
"Actually, I'm a bit frightened of
the third one. It's quite different
stylistically. I may be back to the
rejection-slip stage," he added.
He is hoping to finish his present
novel, the third, by the end of his
course next spring.
What then? "That depends on my
financial situation. I'd like to keep
writing full-time if I can afford it.
"And I've an inkling I'd like to try
Australia next. If I have to work at
something other than writing I would
like to work at something that I can
use in a novel," he said.
And the Master of Fine Arts?
"That's just paper. It's meeting the
other writers and discussing writing in
the workshops that is important to
me," he said.

new construction. The conclusions
were reached after obtaining the views
of all UBC departments and faculties,
preliminary viewing of a survey of
library users carried out this spring,
and intensive discussion around the
themes of technological change, centralization and building strategies.
The conclusions:
1. The University should proceed on
the assumption that library user patterns will remain fairly stable over the
next decade. New space should be
designed in a way remain fairly stable
over the next decade. New space
should be designed in a way that
assumes that the printed word will
continue to dominate and that new
technologies will add on rather than
replace existing, traditional modes.
The report adds: "The library of
the immediate future will be similar to
that of the past, but better for its
variety and speed of service."
2. The process of decentralization
(of library collections) should be
directed in the interest of saving
operating expenses and further complications of the user's problem of acquiring things from several different
places. "The proliferation of small
branch libraries should be avoided,"
the committee recommends.
3. The Main Library building
"should be retained for library functions for the reasons that it is centrally
located, has a historic and esthetic
significance, and locating its collections elsewhere would disrupt an
established pattern of use."
"More pragmatically," the report
continues, "the costs of demolishing
the Main Library would not be trivial,
and building a whole new Main
Library would cause major disruption
in almost any centrally located site."
Looming over all these considerations is the following fact, which the
Larkin committee uses as the opening
sentence of its report: "More books
were published in the last decade than
in the whole history of publication
before the last decade."
Libraries all over the world, the
committee concludes, are faced with
the problem of what to acquire, how
to keep it and what to get rid of.
To aid it in its deliberations, the
committee commissioned a Doomsday
Report, written by head librarian
Basil Stuart-Stubbs and sub-titled
"Predicting the year when the UBC
library system can no longer shelve its
physical volumes."
That year, it turns out, will be 1988
when, with the major exception of the
Law Library (a new unit opened in
1975), the library system will be full.
Doomsday will come earlier for
many other units within the system.
For the Fine Arts Division and the
Music Library it is 1981; for the
Mathematics Division 1983; for the
Asian Studies Division (which has yet
to move into new quarters in the not-
yet-completed Asian Centre) Doomsday will be 1985; and for the Main
Library the stacks will be full in 1986
(although some divisions within the
building will have no space remaining
as early as 1981 and 1982.
In tackling the question of future
user patterns, the committee reaches
the conclusion that microform collections will continue to grow and continue to be a valuable resource, "but
they won't solve the problem of housing books and other library materials
and services."
High technology, the committee
concludes, offers "great
expectations...but little prospect of
immediate relief."
The committee then turns to consideration    of   placing   little-used

The epithelial cells studied by Dr.
Brunette are unusual in that they are
buried in the periodontal ligament.
"If the epithelial cells retard the
breakdown of collagen, we can assume
that if the epithelial cells aren't working properly, the collagen will disappear more quickly, weakening the
ligament," Dr. Brunette said.
He added that other destructive
processes may be at work in periodontal disease, and that his discovery
wasn't necessarily the only mechanism
involved.
His other work includes the effect of
other types of cells in the ligament on
the production and breakdown of collagen, and how cells in the ligament
repair injuries.
material in storage (which also faces a
Doomsday year — 1987).
Storage, the committee points out,
is not cheap. To the costs of construction must be added the costs of placing books in the storage space and of
retrieving them upon request, not to
mention the wear and tear experienced by books during these processes.
The concept that "storage" is
cheaper than "library" space, the
committee's report continues, "is
something of an illusion, for it simply
means that materials will be packed
closer together in out-of-the-way
places. What is gained in space is lost
in convenience."
All this leads the committee to the
conclusion that "there is just no escaping the fact that for the next 20 years
the library system at UBC needs more
space What's needed now is an immediate start on a building program
to create room for the normal growth
of collections until 1990 and to provide for some other library functions
that are not adequately housed."
In the final section of its report, the
committee turns to the question of
financing new library constructon.
The costs, the report says, "will be
substantial (probably in the order of
$25 million) and thought should be
given to special kinds of financing
phased (in) over a period of 3-5 years"
In this section the committee emphasizes that the UBC library system is
a provincial and national resource,
widely used by the public in general,
by governments, business firms and
students from other institutions (as
many as one-fifth of the users of the
library at any one time are not affiliated with UBC, Dean Larkin told
Senate).
In addition, UBC makes its collection available to distant borrowers
through an inter-library loan service.
"It is against this background," the
committee concludes, "that a special
financing formula is appropriate, and
should perhaps take the form of
substantial grants from the provincial
and federal governments, and a
public appeal for donations.
"Most to the point, as a university-
wide and provincial and national
resource, the library system should not
be placed in the same priority stream
as other University buildings. OBCalendar
