T-Birds ready for big one
The UBC Thunderbirds play their
"most important football game of the
season this Friday (Nov. 13) when they
meet the University of Alberta Golden
Bears at 8 p.m. at Thunderbird
Thunderbirds, winners of seven
straight league games after dropping
their season opener, will advance to
the Western Bowl (the Canadian
intercollegiate semi-final) if they win
on Friday. The Western Bowl, likely
against the University of Western
Ontario, would then be played at
- Thunderbird Stadium at 8 p.m. Nov.
But right now, UBC head coach
Frank Smith isn't looking past the
Golden Bears, defending national
Although UBC downed Alberta
twice in regular season play, both
games were close.
"We know they'll be tough," Mr.
Smith said on Monday, "and it isn't
easy to beat a team three times in a
row — as the Winnipeg Blue Bombers
found out yesterday."
Coach Smith said he is hopeful that
freshman running back Glen Steele
will be able to play on Friday. Steele,
Canada's leading university running
back with just under 1,000 yards in
eight league games, suffered a
sprained ankle in UBC's final league
game Oct. 30.
Kenny starts talks
with faculties on
financial crunch
UBC President Douglas T. Kenny is
taking initiatives to meet the needs of
the University community for
information on the University's current
financial difficulties.
He has:
• Begun a series of meetings with
UBC's 12 faculties to discuss the
current financial situation and to
answer questions; and
• Ordered the preparation of a
document on UBC's 1981-82 budget
for wide distribution to the University
The meetings with faculties, some of
them on a two-a-day basis, began on
Monday (Nov. 9) and will continue
until Nov. 23.
The president said the purpose of
the meetings is to explain how the
Administration is attempting to cope
with the University's current financial

respond to a motion passed Thursday
(Nov. 5) at a meeting of the Faculty
Association calling for a "full, and

He said his response would address
itself to the activities of the President's
Advisory Committee on Fiscal
Retrenchment, which was established
in August following a compulsory
salary arbitration award to faculty of
18 per cent.
That 12-member committee, which
is chaired by UBC's vice-president,
academic, and provost, Prof. Michael
Shaw, has now held about a dozen
"The committee," Prof. Shaw said,
" has been meeting with deans and
other University officers to gather
information. It has not yet formulated
any proposals or arrived at any
The committee's terms of reference
are "to consider the entire spectrum of
the University's programs and
operations and advise the president
how best to preserve the quality of
education at UBC in view of an

committee's report with the deans of
the faculties and with the Senate
Budget Committee, which advises the
president on the preparation of UBC's
annual budget, before majung any

In addition to Prof. Shaw, members
of the advisory committee on fiscal
retrenchment are: Dr. J.R. Auman,
Geophysics and Astronomy; Dr. D.H.
Copp, Physiology; Dr. G.A. Feltham,
Commerce and Business

$1.5 million
Real estate that was appraised at
$194,000 when it was left to the
University 10 years ago, is being sold
to the City of Vancouver for $1.5
The property consists of two lots at
the southeast corner of Broadway and
Cambie and was acquired by UBC
under terms of the will of Dr.
Alexander Stewart Monro, who died in
1932. When his wife died in 1971, the
property came to the University.
The $1.5 million will be used by
UBC to establish the A.S. Monro
Trust, with net income from the
investment to be used for medical
research at UBC. The will provides
that the trust be administered by a
three-member committee made up of
nominees of the UBC Board of
Governors, the Council of the College
of Physicians and Surgeons of B.C.
and the Vancouver Medical
The two lots at Broadway and
Cambie total 12,375 square feet, with
a 99-foot frontage on Broadway and a
frontage on Cambie of 125 feet. On
the site are a 16-unit apartment
building and a single-storey structure
housing four commercial tenancies.
Net income from the property in
1980 was approximately $30,000,
considerably less than will be realised
from the investment of the $1.5
million. UBC Reports November 12, 1981

Profs get
Two UBC engineering professors
have been awarded a $140,000 federal
research contract to investigate the
wastewater that flows from municipal
This wastewater, commonly called
"leachate", results from water
percolating through the solid wastes of
a landfill dump and dissolving the
various constituents.
Prof. Jim Atwater and Dr. Don
Mavinic, professors in the
Environmental Engineering Group,
Department of Civil Engineering at
UBC, will undertake the study over a
15-month period, with funding from
the Federal Department of Supply and
Services and Environment Canada.
Under their terms of reference, they
will "monitor the flow from a local
landfill as well as characterize the
leachate, carry out laboratory
treatability studies and determine
whether or not the treated effluent is
nontoxic and free of residual
Prof. Atwater said the bulk of the
field work will be done at the Port
Mann landfill site in Surrey. He said
the site is particularly well-suited for
study because the leachate runoff
there is already collected and piped to
the Annacis Island sewage treatment
Tapping a manhole will give them
the samples they need.
Although the terms "milfoil" and
"acid rain" have become part of the
public's environmental awareness,
"leachate" has only recently been
recognized as a pollutant, even though
it has been in existence since man first
began to litter. With this recognition
by government officials, comes a
concerned effort to start controlling
and treating these leachates.
In many municipalities, wastewater
treatment plants already exist to treat
both municipal and industrial waste,
and the hope is that leachates can be
treated effectively within those
However, in the opinion of
Professors Atwater and Mavinic, there
are a number of questions that first
must be answered regarding the
composition of leachate before such
treatment should be contemplated.
For example, leachate has the
potential to contain trace amounts of
every product disposed of in a landfill,
including "trace organic" compounds,
many of which would not normally be
present in domestic sewage.
In order to identify specific organic
compounds and determine whether
they have been removed requires the
use of a sophisticated, computer-
assisted instrument known as a Gas
Chromatograph — Mass Spectrometer
(GC/MS). The Engineering
Departments of Applied Science have
recently purchased such an instrument
using funds provided by the B.C.
Government; close to $300,000 was
spent to secure and install the new
GC/MS facility which is housed in the
Environmental Lab in the Civil
Engineering Department. It is the
presence of this instrument that was
largely responsible for the research
contract being awarded to Professors
Atwater and Mavinic.

You don't have to just sit, staring into space, when you live in a UBC residence (see story below).
Residences offer more than a bed
UBC's student housing department
is proving that residence life at a
university has more to offer than just a
place to live.
Close to 100 educational programs
are being offered in the evening
during the 1981-82 winter session in
the three single student residences on
campus, making UBC the leader in
residence programming in Canada.
"Residence students spend up to 60
per cent of their time in their
residences," said Patrick Buchanan,
assistant co-ordinator of residence
student affairs. "It makes sense that
they be able to spend their leisure time
there in educational, relaxing and
productive ways."
The programs fit into four general
categories, according to Mr.
Buchanan. "There are practical
courses, such as certified industrial
first aid courses, resume writing and
job interview workshops, speed reading
and study skills courses, income tax
seminars and information evenings on
career choices and nutritional and
health concerns."
In the second category are
recreational programs.   The residences
organize film nights, hikes, dances,
track meets, tennis tournaments and
coffee houses. The third group consists
of cultural programs, and the fourth
general area involves community
events such as blood donor clinics,
helping with student orientations and
getting involved in off-campus
campaigns such as the Empty Stocking
Fund in the Christmas season.
The programs are organized by 44
residence advisory staff members.
"These are senior students living in

tuition fees
Student tuition fees for 1982-83 will
be considered by the UBC Board of
Governors on Jan. 26, 1982.
The Board last week deferred a
decision on tuition fees because of the
uncertainty of the University's
financial position.
Normally, the Board reviews tuition
fees in October each year and adjusts
them at its meeting in November.
Both the Senate Budget Committee
and the President's Advisory
Committee on Budget Retrenchment
recommended to the Board that it
postpone a decision on 1982-83 tuition
fees pending clarification of UBC's
financial position and completion of
the work of the retrenchment
committee, which is scheduled to
report to President Douglas Kenny in

residence who are hired by student
housing to act as a sort of 'support'
group in the residences," said Mr.
Buchanan. "They are required to
organize at least one program per
term. They get feedback from students
about the kinds of programs they'd be
interested in and then brainstorm to
come up with ideas for courses. Some
of the programs get a turn-out of
about a hundred or two hundred
Programs usually differ in the three
residences although some tri-residence
evenings are organized. "Because of
the difference in ages in the
residences, areas of interest are not
always the same," said Mr. Buchanan.
"While first and second year students
in Totem Park and Place Vanier are
interested in study skills and essay
writing workshops, senior students in
Gage are more likely to be concerned
with workshops on job-finding skills."
Students organizing the programs
often call on campus resources such as
the Student Counselling and Resources
Centre, the Women Students' Office,
the RCMP, the Student Health Service
and International House to put on a
UBC faculty members also take part
by giving lectures in the evenings.
"Last year we had a series called the
'Last Lecture Series'," said Mr.
Buchanan. "We asked professors to
speak on a topic that they would
choose if they could only give one last
lecture. Some of the topics were...
different... but interesting." UBC Reports November 12, 1981

Old and new in 'Legacy' spotlight
More than 100 of the finest
Northwest Coast Indian masks and
headdresses, engraved silver and gold
boxes, painted screens and other art
works are featured in the exhibition
The Legacy: Continuing Traditions of
Canadian Northwest Coast Indian Art,
on display at the UBC Museum of
Anthropology from Nov. 25 through
August 31, 1982.
The Legacy is one of the most
comprehensive exhibitions of
Northwest Coast Indian Art in British
Columbia to focus on Northwest Coast
contemporary art and the traditional
background which shaped this art.
Traditional and contemporary works
from all eight major coast tribal
groups — Haida, Tlingit, Tsimshian,
Northern and Southern Kwakiutl,
Bella Coola, Westcoast and Coast
Salish are represented. These works
are displayed and contrasted to show
the evolution of styles and traditions.
The show celebrates the renewed
vigor of Northwest Coast Indian art in
the last twenty years by presenting a
large group of specially commissioned
contemporary pieces. Drawing upon
the bold color, elegant form and
dynamic expression of the rich cultural
heritage, each artist re-interprets the
myths and symbols of the Northwest
Coast legacy.
Included in the show are
"traditional" pieces — objects
produced before the time of European
contact in the late eighteenth century
for use by the Indian peoples
themselves. Also on display are works
made for sale to the European and
North American collector and curio
markets. The production of curio arts,
initially an incidental activity for most
professional artists, became an
important source of income as
economic and social conditions
changed. Therefore, these transitional
works often served as the link between
the traditional art of the past and the
contemporary artist.
The Legacy was the first large-scale
exhibition of the Northwest Coast
Indian art to be organized in British
Columbia for display overseas.
Originally produced by the B.C.
Provincial Museum from works in the

UBC's Faculty of Applied Science is
collaborating with the University of
Piura in northern Peru on a project
designed to enhance the expertise of
engineering professors and students at
the University of Piura, and local
practicing engineers in the area of
materials of construction.
"The development of northern Peru
is heavily dependent on the
construction of roads, bridges,
irrigation dams, factories and houses,"
said UBC's associate dean of Applied
Science, Prof. Axel Meisen. "Extensive
use should be made of locally available
construction materials, but two
problems exist: most of the
professionals in this area are not well-
versed in the science and technology of
construction materials, and facilities
for evaluating and testing the
materials do not exist in northern
The project, which is funded by the
Canadian International Development
Agency, begins in January, 1982. Prof.
Sidney Mindess, who is on leave of
absence from the University this year,
will teach a three-week condensed
course on materials of construction to
engineering professors at the University
of Piura. Local engineers chosen by
the university in Peru will also attend
the course.
Later in the spring, a professor from
the University of Piura will come to
UBC to attend civil and metallurgical
engineering courses concerned with
materials of construction, and to
collaborate with ongoing research at
"The professor will be in Canada
approximately a year or 18 months,
said Prof. Meisen. "While he is here,
UBC engineering professors will assist
in the selection of testing equipment
for construction materials which will
be purchased in Canada and sent to
Peru, where a testing laboratory is
being set up."
In July, Prof. Mindess, or an other
UBC professor, will return to Peru and
teach a second course, this time to
senior engineering students at the
Prof. Meisen is optimistic about the
results of the collaboration. "In the
long term, I think the entire region of
northern Peru, which has a population
of about five million, will benefit from
the project, since the project promotes
accelerated regional development.
UBC professors will benefit by
acquiring experience in technical
problems, which they can use in their
teaching and research here at UBC." UBC Reports November 12, 1981
foanna Staniszkis
award-winning tapestry artist
She's the best in Canada
Prof. Joanna Staniszkis of UBC's
School of Home Economics has been
awarded the 1981 Saidye Bronfman
Award for Excellence in the Crafts.
The award is made annually by the
Canadian Crafts Council and carries a
prize of $16,000.
Prof. Staniszkis, a weaver of
tapestries that have been exhibited
throughout Canada, Europe and the
United States, teaches design
fundamentals, including textile design
and interior design.
She attended the School of The
Chicago Art Institute, worked as an
interior design consultant and made
several trips to South America to study
pre-Columbian textiles before joining
UBC in 1969.
In announcing its decision, the jury
said they recognized the strength, the
visual impact and the excellent
execution of Prof. Staniszkis'
This year's Bronfman jury included
a previous Bronfman winner, Monique
Cliche-Spenard, quiltmaker; Charley
Farrero, potter and CCC's President
Tont Cavelti, goldsmith and
silversmith; Raymond Phaneuf, potter,
CCC Director for Quebec, and
President of Corporation du Salon des
Metiers d'Art du Quebec; Marc Pitre,
Director of the Art Gallery of the
University of Moncton, New
The Bronfman Award was created
in 1977 by the four Bronfman children
to honor their mother, Mrs. Samuel
Bronfman of Montreal, on her 80th
The previous winners, aside from
Monique Cliche-Spenard (who won in
1979) have been ceramist Robin
Hopper of Victoria, goldsmith and
silversmith Lois Etherington Betteridge
of Mont St-Hilaire, Quebec, and
ceramist Louise Doucet-Saito of Ayer's
Cliff, Quebec.
Speakers Bureau
fills 460 requests
The UBC Speakers Bureau has had
another successful year, according to
the bureau's 1980-81 annual report
Changes at
BoG support
UBC's Board of Governors has
approved two developments affecting
• TRIUMF, the cyclotron project on the
University's south campus. Although
located at UBC, TRIUMF is operated
jointly by UBC, the University of
Alberta, Simon Fraser University and
, the University of Victoria.
The Board approved a joint venture
agreement already approved by the
boards of the other participating
universities. It sets out legal
responsibilities and liabilities in the
event of some unfortunate
circumstance in the future.
The second Board decision was to
approve amendments to the agreement
under which TRIUMF will produce
isotopes for medical diagnosis.
About 25 per cent of all hospital
patients receive isotopes as part of
their treatment. Canada currently
provides approximately 60 per cent of
the world market for medical isotopes.
A major advantage of isotopes to be
produced at TRIUMF is that they
provide the same diagnostic
information while exposing patients to
much less radiation than conventional
TRIUMF agreed three years ago to
produce isotopes for the medical
market and entered into agreements
with UBC, B.C. Development Corp.
and Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd.
The agreements were based on the
assumption that the isotopes could be
produced for a capital investment of
$3.5 million. But about a year after
the original agreements were signed,
interest rates increased dramatically
and the value of the Canadian dollar
dropped compared with currency in
the U.S. where most of the equipment
would come from. The original
estimate of $3.5 million rose to $7
Forestry seminars
linked to research
The Faculty of Forestry has initiated
a seminar series to transmit the results
of forestry research to the professional
forestry community of the Vancouver
area and to the campus academic
The talks are held each Tuesday at
12:30 p.m. in MacMillan 166 and
visitors are welcome.
Prof. Gordon Weetman gave the
first seminar, this week, on forest
fertilization research in British
Succeeding Tuesdays will feature
talks on ecosystem modelling, bears,
the forestry-agriculture land use
conflict, the potential of forest biomass
as a chemical raw material, and the
effects of clearcutting and
slashburning on ecosystem nutrient
Speakers and titles will be listed in
the Calendar section of UBC Reports.
published by the Alumni Association.
"During 1980-81, 476 UBC faculty
and staff members volunteered their
time and expertise to the Speakers
Bureau and 460 speaking engagements
were arranged," said Prof. Oscar
Sziklai, chairman of the Speakers
Bureau Committee. "We estimate that
approximately 29,000 people have
been reached through the program."
Topics available through the bureau
range from world affairs, business
management, geology and computers
to literature, communication and
"Topics often requested by groups
are those concerning health and
nutrition, travel, energy issues,
economy-related subjects, women's
studies, stress and anxiety, forestry and
other natural resources and topics
dealing wiih children or senior
citizens," said Prof. Sziklai.
Speakers registered with the bureau
carry out the engagements free of
charge, with the group or organization
paying only the speaker's travelling
"This year we've received a $1,500
grant from the Walter Koerner
Foundation which has enabled us to
pay for travel expenses outside the
Lower Mainland," said Prof. Sziklai.
"Before, we were unable to service
outlying districts because of financial
reasons, but with the grant we can
reach people further away from the
Vancouver area."
