UBC faculty earn 3 Royal Society medals
UBC, in competition with more
than 60 other universities across
Canada, has taken three of eight
medals awarded this year by the Royal
Society of Canada for outstanding
discoveries over the past 10 years.
The winners are Prof. John Brown
of UBC's physiology department, who
receives the MacLaughlin Medal; Prof.
Clayton O. Person of the botany
department, winner of the Flavelle
Medal; and Dr. William G. Unruh,
associate professor in the physics
department, who takes the Rutherford
Memorial Medal.
UBC President Douglas T. Kenny
said the awards are further evidence of
the quality of research at UBC.
"The amount of money for research
and the number of awards for
excellent research our faculty has
attracted has dramatically increased in
recent years," Dr. Kenny said. "This is
because research granting agencies in
Canada and elsewhere recognize the
status of our faculty and the quality of
the work they do."
.Prof. Brown's discovery of two
gastrointestinal hormones, GIP and
motilin, has added to our fundamental
understanding of how the gut works in
health and disease, and places him the
forefront of gut research.
The hormone GIP is important in a
number of diseases including diabetes,
obesity and chronic inflammation and
infection of the pancreas. It is one of
the most potent known releasers of
insulin from the pancreas.
The second hormone, motilin, is
involved in movement of food from
the stomach to the duodenum — the

Harris, Hall win Killam Fellowships
Two of three 1982 Killam Research
Fellowships awarded in Western
Canada by the Canada Council have
gone to professors at UBC.
The fellowships, considered the most
prestigious academic awards in
Canada, provide salary replacement
and fringe benefits, enabling recipients
to work for up to two years on special
projects.
This year's UBC winners are Prof.
Cole Harris, a geographer who is
working on a historical atlas of
Canada, and Prof. Laurance Hall,
who is conducting research on medical
imaging of the human body.
The only other westerner among the
14 Killam recipients for 1982 is Dr.
Roderick Wong, a mathematics
professor at the University of
Manitoba.
Prof. George Archibald of UBC has
had his Killam Fellowship renewed,
enabling him to continue his research
on the theory of decentralized
socialism.
Geographer Harris will spend a year
at Cambridge University from the
beginning of August, "reading and
writing."
Prof. Harris, as well as editing

and on early British Columbia. He

A current botanical theory is that
for every change in a gene of a plant
parasite, there is another gene change
in the plant the parasite attacks.
This would mean, for example, that
wheat rust, a fungal parasite, evolves
in lock-step with the wheat it attacks.

Committee
to review
terminals
A six-person union-administration
committee is being established to
review the installation and operation
of visual display terminals (VDTs) on
campus.
Bob Grant, director of employee
relations, said the committee would
have the following terms of reference:
a) To recommend standards for the
safe operation of VDTs across campus;
b) To recommend operating
practices which will address the health
needs of VDT operators;
c) To advise on the installation of
VDTs to ensure that such installations
respond to those concerns affecting the
health and safety of the operators.
Administration members of the
committee are Dr. Eric Jeffries of
health care and epidemiology,
assistant librarian Erik De Bruijn, and
the associate director of the computing
centre, Jack Leigh.
Two committee members are to be
named by the Association of University
and College Employees (AUCE) and
one by the Canadian Union of Public
Employees (CUPE).
Mr. Grant said that with the
increasing use of word processing
equipment and computer terminals,
"some employees have become
concerned over potential radiation
hazards involved in work at such
equipment. A lot of this fear is
stimulated by television programs and
non-scientific magazine articles."
Mr. Grant said the University has
been assured by Health and Welfare
Canada that there are no radiation
hazards involved in working with the
visual display terminals.
"The Radiation Protection Bureau
of Health and Welfare Canada has
carried out precise x-ray emission
measurements on 92 video display

rust making the parasite more virulent
against wheat, there is a corresponding
change in a wheat gene making wheat
more resistant to the rust.
Prof. Person has developed
theoretical models refining the theory
so that the exact nature of the changes
in the genes can be predicted. His
work was based on barley and a
parasite caned barley smut but can be
applied universally to all plants and
their parasites.
Prof. Person's research is important
to efforts by scientists to improve
resistance in agricultural crops to
parasites and to keep one step ahead
of genetic changes in parasites that
attack crops.
Dr. Unruh is a theoretical physicist
who is attempting to reconcile two
mutually contradictory theories.
Einstein's theory of relativity is
designed to explain astronomical
events on a cosmic scale. Quantum
mechanics tries to describe what
happens within atoms. Scientists have
been trying to reconcile both theories
since they were introduced early this
century.
Dr. Unruh is also an expert on
black holes, those incredibly dense
astronomical bodies whose gravity is so
great that nothing including light can
escape their grasp. Contrary to
conventional wisdom, it is now known
that radiation in the form of heat is
created near black holes, so they are
not completely black. With Prof.
Robert Wald from Chicago, Dr.
Unruh has shown that it is
theoretically possible to extract this
radiation, and so decrease the mass of
a black hole.
He has worked on the problems of
measuring "gravitational waves" which
according to Einstein pervade the
universe. If they exist, they would
make objects on earth vibrate. But the
vibration would be so slight that to
measure it would be similar to
measuring the distance from the earth
to the moon to an accuracy of less
than the width of one atom. At that
scale, the vibrations would have to be
explained using quantum mechanics.
Profs. Brown and Person have
received other awards: Prof. Brown
won a Jacob Biely Faculty Research
Prize from UBC, received the Ernst
Oppenheimer Memorial Award from
the Endocrine Society of the U.S., and
was given an honorary degree from the
University of Newcastle where he
received his Ph.D.
Prof. Person has recently been
named a fellow of the American
Phytopathological Society, has received
an award of excellence from the
Canadian Genetics Society and last
year won a gold medal from the B.C.
Science Council. The Science Council
awarded three gold medals last year,
all three to UBC researchers.

Staff to elect new BoG rep
UBC's Board of Governors lost one
of its 15 members on April 1 as a
result of the separation of the Health
Sciences Centre Hospital from the
University.
Neil Boucher, who was elected to
the Board in January, 1981, by the
employed staff of the University,
ceased to be a UBC employee at
midnight on March 31 when control of
the UBC hospital passed to the Health
Sciences Centre Hospital Society.
Procedures to hold an election to
choose a successor to Mr. Boucher
have been set in motion by Kenneth
Young, UBC's Registrar, who is
responsible for all UBC elections.
Nominations from the full-time
employees of the University who are
not faculty members close at 4 p.m.
on Friday (April 16). The individual
elected will hold office until Jan. 31,
1984.
Election details are available from
Mary Raphael, Registrar's Office,
228-6338.
Peter Burns named
new Dean of Law
UBC's Board of Governors has
approved the appointment of a new
dean of the Faculty of Law and a new
head for the Department of
Geography in the Faculty of Arts.
The new head of UBC's law school
is Prof. Peter Burns. Prof. Olav
Slaymaker is the new head of the
Department of Geography. Both have
been faculty members at UBC since
1968 and both appointments are
effective July 1.
Prof. Burns succeeds Prof. Kenneth
Lysyk, who steps down as dean after a
six-year term of office and who
remains at UBC as a full-time teacher
in the UBC law school.
Prof. Slaymaker has been acting
head of the geography department
since July, 1981. Prof. John Chapman
served as the department's acting
director in 1980-81 following the
resignation of Prof. R.H.T. Smith to
become UBC's associate vice-president
academic.
A native of New Zealand, Prof.
Burns was educated at the University
of Otago, where he was awarded the
degrees of Bachelor and Master of
Law. He taught at Otago from 1963
to 1965, when he joined the University
of Auckland for three years before
coming to Canada.
Prof. Burns has specialized in
teaching and research in the fields of
criminal law and torts — civil wrongs.
He is the author of several books and
a wide range of articles on topics
related to both fields.
He has been active in the affairs of
a number of professional organizations
and has served on several key UBC
committees.
He is a former member of the
academic freedom and tenure
committee of the Canadian
Association of University Teachers and
was a member of the executive of the
Vancouver Bar Association in 1977-78.
He chaired the advisory board of
the B.C. Police College from 1974 to
1978 and has been called on by the
Law Reform Commissions of Canada
and B.C. and the federal Department
of Justice as a consultant.
Prof. Burns has been called to the
bar in both New Zealand and British
Columbia.
Prof. Slaymaker is a native of Wales

from 19 different manufacturers," he
said. "In every case, no x-ray emission
was detectable. Innumerable
investigations of VDTs by reputable
scientists have repeatedly demonstrated
that there are no levels of radiation
emitted from these terminals that
could possibly be hazardous to the
operator, whether pregnant or not."
But Mr. Grant said there may be
other problems associated with the
operation of computer terminals.
"The sedentary qualities of office
work tend to be exaggerated in people
who use video display terminals.
Fatigue and eyestrain may be factors.
There is certainly a rather specialized
work environment for someone who
spends the day interacting with a
machine instead of with other people."
Because of this, Mr. Grant said, it
had been decided to establish the
union-administration committee.
who holds the degrees of Bachelor and
Master of Arts and Doctor of
Philosophy from Cambridge University
in England. He also holds a master's
degree from Harvard University, where
he was a teaching fellow in 1962-63.
Before joining the UBC faculty in
1968, Prof. Slaymaker was a lecturer
in geography at the University College
of Wales.
He is an expert in the fields of
hydrology and geomorphology — the
study of the origin and development of
the surface features of land — and has
written extensively on both topics.
He has also been active as a
member of a wide range of University
committees established by the
president's office and various UBC
faculties. He is the coordinator of the
interdisciplinary hydrology program in
the Faculty of Graduate Studies.

UBC Board
to meet
in Nanaimo
The UBC Board of Governors will
meet in Nanaimo on May 3, in
keeping with the Board's policy of
meeting each spring in a different part
of the province.
The UBC Board met last spring in
Prince George.
The May 3 meeting will be held at
Malaspina College at 2 p.m., following
a morning tour of the college and a
noon luncheon there. There will be a
reception in the Malaspina College
cafeteria at 6 p.m., followed by a
banquet hosted by the UBC Alumni
Association. The banquet will honor
scholarship and athletic award winners
from the Nanaimo area.
On Thursday, Friday and Saturday,
April 29 and 30 and May 1, a UBC
Open House will be held at the
Woodgrove Shopping Centre, 6631
Island Highway North.
There will be approximately 30
displays, including a number of
"hands on" displays inviting audience
participation.
In addition, a "cultural mini-series"
is planned for one of the store fronts,
with a different event scheduled for
each half hour — films, lectures,
debates, etc.  — to highlight UBC
departments whose subject matter
doesn't lend itself to static exhibits. UBC Reports April 14, 1982
This quintet of UBC law students swept to victory recently in the Canadian Bar Association's annual Moot Competition at
Osgoode Hall Law Courts in Toronto, where teams from 14 Canadian law schools vied for the G.A. Gale Trophy (that's it
front and centre), named for a former chief justice of Ontario. It's the first time in the history of the competition that the
trophy has been awarded to a team from outside Ontario. And as if that wasn't enough, third-year law student David
Church, centre, was judged the leading speaker at the moot competition and was awarded a $100 prize. The team as a
group got a $200 prize with the Gale Trophy. On Church's right are Kathy Kelly, Law 3, and Glen Purdy, Law 2. At right
are Robert Cheney, Law 3, and Dennis Evanson, Law 2.
Garden cuts 10 staff, digs up roses
UBC's Botanical Garden, hit hard
by retrenchment, will launch a $4
million endowment fund program at
the end of May in a bid to restore
programs and gardens to pre-
retrenchment levels.
With a cut in the operating budget
of 14.8 per cent and a reduction of
capital development funds of 42.7 per
cent, the Botanical Garden has
reduced staff by 10 technicians and
gardeners, or 25 per cent, and faces
the loss of nine additional positions a
year from now.
The loss of staff will affect all
aspects of the Botanical Garden's
operation, from maintenance of plant
collections to public education
programs.
The rose garden at Cecil Green
Park has been eliminated, as have a
number of the beds at the main rose
New paper
out in May
Plans are under way in the AMS
publications office for the production
of a bi-weekly paper this summer
entitled The Conventioner. The paper
is geared for the out-of-town visitor to
the UBC campus, and will contain
articles and event listings covering
current cultural and recreational
activities at UBC and elsewhere in
Vancouver.
The Conventioner will appear on
campus every second Tuesday from
May 4 through Aug. 10. It can be
picked up free of charge at various
points around campus.
For more information about the
paper, you can contact editor Will
Orlecki or assistant editor Brock
MacDonald at 228-3877.
garden adjacent to the Faculty Club.
All told, some 480 rose bushes have
been sold.
Also gone are 3,000 perennials and
350 rhododendron bushes. The flower
beds at International House will
disappear, no annuals will be planted
this year, and there will be no hanging
baskets on campus.
The horticultural therapy programs
are being phased out, publication of
the quarterly publication Davidsonia
has been suspended, the fruit and
vegetable display garden at the
Botanical Garden office has been
eliminated, the seed exchange with
600 institutes around the world has
been cancelled, and there will be
major reductions in maintenance of
collections such as the Alpine Garden,
Asian Garden and the Native Garden.
Even the public hours for the
Nitobe Garden have been reduced.
The garden will be open daily from
10 a.m. to a half-hour before sunset
until Sept. 26, and then will be open
only on weekdays until Easter of 1983,
from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Dr. Roy Taylor, director of the
Program
Botanical Garden, said attempts to
have staff positions and programs that
have been financed through capital
development funds transferred to the
permanent operating budget had not
met with success.
"Faced with the loss of almost a
quarter of our staff, eliminating many
parts of the garden and a number of
programs was our only choice," Dr.
Taylor said. "We couldn't just leave
the roses and other plants in the
ground and not look after them.
Digging many of them up was the only
way we could maintain standards with
those we have retained."
Dr. Taylor said the endowment
fund program is based on a 10-percent return on money invested. He
said the Botanical Garden hopes to
fund 10 different programs or gardens
this way, with contributors having the
right to specify which program their
membership or donation would go to.

Garden programs, the annual
operating cost, and the endowment

to review
GSA move
The University Administration has
appointed a three-member committee
to review recent actions of the
Graduate Student Association, which
has unilaterally altered the
constitution and by-laws of the Thea
Koerner Graduate Student Centre.
Under the terms of a proposed new
constitution and by-laws, there is no
provision for University representation
on a new board of directors which will
govern the centre.
The proposed constitution and bylaws were approved on March 31 at
the annual general meeting of the
Graduate Student Association, which
was attended by about 100 members
of the 3,500-member association.
Prof. Michael Shaw, UBC's vice-
president academic and provost, said
the members of the committee to
review the GSA actions are Prof. Peter
Larkin, dean of the Faculty of
Graduate Studies; Prof. Peter Burns,
dean-designate of the Faculty of Law;
and Prof. Peter Suedfeld, head of the
Department of Psychology, who will
chair the committee.
He said he has asked the committee
to advise him on a future course of
action to be taken by the University as
a result of the GSA actions.
"The Graduate Student Centre,"
Prof. Shaw said, "was a gift to the
University from the late Dr. Leon
Koerner in memory of his wife, Thea.
The centre is the property of the
University, which has a legal
obligation to ensure that the building
is used as a meeting place and as a
social and recreational centre for
graduate students."
The constitution and by-laws
approved on March 31 by the GSA
provides for the creation of a new
Graduate Student Society and a new
board of directors made up of the
voting members of the society's
council.
Voting members listed in the bylaws are the six executive members of
the society, the student member
representing graduate students on the
University Senate and representatives
of each department in the Faculty of
Graduate Studies.
The latter group of council
members could number as many as
100, since the by-laws call for
representation based on the number of
graduate students enrolled in each
department.
Under the current by-laws of the
Thea Koerner Graduate Centre
Society, the building is governed by an
11-member board of directors,
including three persons appointed by
the president of the University.
Other board members are four
persons elected at the annual general
meeting by the members of the centre,
three persons appointed by the
Graduate Student Association (one
faculty member and two full-time
members of the University community
who may be UBC faculty or staff
members, librarians or associate
members of the centre), and the
internal affairs officer of the GSA.

Koerner. In 1971, a $750,000 addition
to the building was completed.
The University borrowed funds to
construct the addition. The loan is
being repaid through a $14 assessment
paid annually by each graduate
student enrolled at the University. The
loan will be repaid by 1987.
In addition to the building
assessment fee, graduate students pay
a compulsory annual fee of $11 for
membership in the centre and $1 to
support the activities of the Graduate
Student Association.
