Plans for 1986 celebrations under way
Daniel Brooks
Second medal
won by UBC
A young UBC scientist has won
international recognition for major
contributions to biology.
Dr. Daniel R. Brooks has been
awarded the highest honor of the
American Society of Parasitologists for
fundamental discoveries and new
theories on the evolution of parasites
and their hosts. His work has led to a
new theory of evolution, the single
most important idea in biology.
Dr. Brooks and colleague E.O. Wiley
of the University of Kansas have
presented their new theory in
"Evolution as Entropy: Towards a Unified
Theory of Biology" to be published by
the University of Chicago Press in
The Henry Baldwin Ward Medal from
the parasitology society is for scientists
under the age of 40. Dr. Brooks, 34, has
been a member of  UBC's zoology
department since 1980.
Earlier this year Dr. Brook won the
first award for excellence in research
given by Dr. Charles A. McDowell,
University Professor and former head of
UBC's chemistry department.
Update: Nov. 6,1985. Rick Hansen
has travelled 9,400 miles on his
round-the-world-wheelchair tour to
raise funds for spinal cord research
and rehabilitation, and is currently
in Lisbon, Portugal. Contributions in
B.C. so far total $458,000. If you'd

1986 will be an exciting year for
Vancouver as the city celebrates its
100th year and plays host to visitors
from around the world during Expo '86.
Many UBC departments and units are
planning special events for 1986 to
promote the University's unique offerings
to visitors to Vancouver and to
demonstrate the vital role UBC plays in
the life of our province.
Four members of the University
community who are making notable
contributions to plans for next year's
celebrations are Norman Young of the
theatre department, Anne Yandle, head
of the Library's special collections
division, lean Barman of the history
department and Robert Hindmarch,
director of athletics and sport services
at UBC. All four are members of the
Vancouver Centennial Commission
chaired by Mayor Michael Harcourt,
which is responsible for planning and
overseeing events scheduled during
Vancouver's 100th birthday.
Here are brief descriptions of some of
the projects proposed by campus units
during I986.
• The Off ice of Community Relations
is negotiating With'GraylineTours on the
development of a special bus tour
highlighting the many public attractions
on the UBC campus. Community
Relations also hopes to expand its own
campus walking tour program next
summer to accommodate the increased
number of visitors to the campus. As
well, the department has proposed a
series of mini-documentary television
programs, hosted by David Suzuki, that
would focus on leading-edge research
being carried out in various disciplines
at UBC. The pilot of the series was
aired on CHEK-TV last weekend.
• The special collections division of
the Library, in conjunction with the
Vancouver Historical Society, has
compiled a listing of books, articles,
pamphlets, map archives, etc., relating
to the City of Vancouver. The data base,
which consists of more than 1,500
Socred MLA Day
Members of the Social Credit Party
caucus will visit the University on
Friday, Nov. 15.
The visit follows the New Democratic
Party's visit on Oct. 22. The Socred MLA
Day on campus was originally
scheduled for Oct. 24 but was cancelled
due to an emergency caucus meeting
in Victoria.
The schedule for the Socred visit will
be altered to allow Dr. David Strangway,
UBC's new president who took office
Nov. 1, to spend an extended discussion
period with the government members.
The day will include a tour of the
campus, workshops led by faculty
experts, and an opportunity to meet
with student leaders, faculty and
members of the University administration
during lunch and at a reception.
items, will be available to the public and
the bibliography will be published in
book form (3 or 4 volumes) by the end
of 1985.
• The UBC Centre for Transportation
Studies is hosting a World Conference
on Transport Research May 11 to 15 at
the Four Seasons Hotel. Participants
from universities, government and
industry from more than 30 countries

developments in all modes of
transportation. The conference is linked
with the Expo '86 educational symposia
• Engineering students from around
the world are designing and building
vehicles for the Innovative Vehicle
Design Competition organized by UBC
engineering students. The goal is to
design and build a vehicle of maximum
efficiency, safety and practicality. To
date 13 designs from seven countries
have been submitted for the
competition, which takes place July 11
to 18. The testing and judging of the
vehicles takes place on July 14 in UBC's
Blot parking area. After July 19 the
vehicles will be displayed at the Expo '86
• The Museum of Anthropology has

On Thursday (Oct. 31), the day before he officially took over as UBC's 10th
president, Dr. David Strangway arrived on the campus to confer with
outgoing president pro tern. Dr. Robert Smith, left. Dr. Smith returns to his
native Australia later this month where he will become vice-chancellor of
the University of Western Australia in Perth.
Support urged for United Way Appeal
Members of the UBC community have
donated $53,200 so far in the United
Way campaign on campus. Campus
chairman Prof. Dennis Pavlich expressed
his thanks to those who have supported
the appeal and urged those who have
not yet sent in their pledge cards to do
"Contributions are down slightly from
this point in last year's campaign," he
said, "but I'm confident that we can
change that before the campaign ends
in mid-November." Last year UBC raised
$106,000 for the United Way. CAMPUS

newsletter, the CBA Bulletin, over the
past five and a half years.
Dr. lain E.P. Taylor of the botany
department is serving as president of
the Canadian Botanical Association for
1985-86, the fourth UBC faculty
member to head the association in its
21-year history. Dr. Taylor, who has

firm, released the sixth novel of Prof.
Robert Harlow, a long-time member of
UBC's Department of Creative Writing,
in mid-October. Entitled Felice: A
Travelogue, Prof. Harlow's latest work
is set in Poland and addresses the
themes of the brutalization of people
in wartime, oppression under a
communist regime and the exploitation
of men and women in modern industrial
cultures. An earlier novel of Prof.
Harlow's, Making Arrangements, first
published by McClelland and Stewart
in I977, has been re-released as a mass

UBC graduate Mary Hill, who has
taught in the School of Social Work
since 1960, says the announcement of
her "retirement" by a Vancouver
Province columnist early in October
was "a trifle premature."
Mrs. Hill, who was named 1985
Social Worker of the Year at the annual
meeting of the B.C. Association of
Social Workers, is still busy at her
teaching duties in the house on Cecil
Green Park Road that was willed to the
University in 1963 by the late F. Ronald
Graham and which became home to the
social work school the following year.
Mrs. Hill says she'll continue to teach
until the end of June next year.
When social work alumni held their
annual meeting during Homecoming
Week recently, Mrs. Hill was one of four
well-known members of the school
who were singled out for recognition
because of impending retirement.   The
others were Prof. George Hougham,
Prof. William Nicholls and Mrs. Mary
Province columnist Chuck Bayley,
who writes a column for senior citizens
called "Primetime", characterized Mrs.
Hill as "knowledgeable, caring, respected
and loved." He added: "In some way,
she has touched every important
development affecting the well-being of
older people in the last 25 years in B.C.
and Canada."
Later in the column, Mr. Bayley
described her as a "true teacher" who
has "addressed hundreds of meetings,
workshops and seminars, sharing her
experiences, emphasizing the good and
pointing to what can be better."
Dr. Tsung-yi Lin of the psychiatry
department has been awarded the I985
Lecture Award by the Royal College of
Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
Dean William Webber of UBC's
Faculty of Medicine has been appointed
to a two-year term as president of the
Association of Canadian Medical
Dr. David Suzuki of the Department
of Zoology will be the first MacClement
Lecturer at Queen's University in

productive careers. A painting by
Professor emeritus Sam Black entitled
"Church at Castro Marim" has been
selected by the jury of the 60th annual
open exhibition to receive the Canadian
Society of Painters in Watercofor honor
award. The show is being staged in
Toronto until Nov. 10.
Associate professor emeritus Sinclair
Healy has hit on a unique way to
display his paintings. Under arrangements
with restaurants in Vancouver and
West Vancouver, continuing exhibits of
his paintings can be seen at theGizella
Chalet Restaurant in Arbutus Village
Square in Vancouver and Rene's
Restaurant in West Vancouver's Park
Dr. DeLloyd Guth of UBC's Faculty
of Law has been elected a fellow of
Great Britain's Royal Historical Society.
Candidates must be nominated by two
members of the society's council and

whose scholarly reputation is evidenced
by significant publications in any aspect
of English history. Professor emeritus of
English Philip Akrigg is also a fellow of
the society.
McClelland and Stewart have published
the memoirs of UBC's former Chancellor
and graduate, Hon. J.V. Clyne, under the
title Jack of All Trades: Memoirs of a
Busy Life.
Special Collections receives oral history tapes
UBC's oral history resources were
enriched recently with the addition of
some 150 cassette tapes that record the
reminiscences of 91 pioneer Japanese
The tapes were a gift to the
University by the Greater Vancouver
Japanese-Canadian Citizen's Association,
which in 1981 formed a committee to
record the life stories of older members
of the Japanese community in B.C.
It was also decided in 1981 that the
results of the project should be
deposited in the special collections
division of the UBC Library.
The Japanese-Canadian History
Preservation Committee began its work
in 1982-83 with grant support from the
federal government. Some 67 pioneers
were interviewed in the first year and a
federal grant under the Challenge '85
program supported five students who
catalogued the 1982-83 interviews,
interviewed another 24 persons and
transcribed 17 of the interviews.
Taking part in the presentation of the
tapes were Irene Nemegh, president of
the Greater Vancouver Japanese-
Canadian Citizen's Association; Don
Tokawa and Frank Hanano, chairman
and past chairman, respectively, of the
Japanese-Canadian History Preservation
Committee; and three UBC students who
were associated with the 1985 section
of the project.
Over the past four years the
committee has provided other collections
and photographs of the lapanese-
Canadian community for special
The tapes join other oral history
projects in the UBC library, including
recordings of Vancouver pioneers by the
Vancouver Historical Society, pioneers
of the B.C. trade union movement and
reminiscences about the UBC contingent
of the Canadian Officers Training Corps.
These three cases of cassette tapes are the fruits of three years of work by
the Japanese-Canadian History Preservation Committee, which has
recorded the life stories of 91 pioneer Japanese-Canadians for deposit in the
special collections division of the UBC Library. Three UBC students who
played an important role in the project in the summer of 1985 are, left to
right, Tami Adams, Kimberly Tsuyuki and Eric Sokugawa. UDC
