quadriplegic who pioneered the
development of rehabilitation services
for the physically handicapped in
Western Canada, will be one of five
persons receiving honorary degrees at
UBC's spring Congregation ceremonies
May 27, 28 and 29.
Desjardins, who retired recently as
executive director of the G.F. Strong
Rehabilitation Centre in Vancouver,
will be honored on May 29 with Bora
Laskin, chief justice of Canada's
Supreme Court, who was prevented by
illness from receiving an honorary
degree in 1980.
Others who will be honored at the
three-day ceremony are:
Filly Ameling of the Netherlands, a
renowned soprano who has been
internationally acclaimed as a concert
and opera singer and as a recording
artist;
T.C. "Tommy" Douglas, a
Canadian political figure for more
than four decades and leader of the
New Democratic Party from 1961 to
1971; and
Harold M. Wright of Vancouver, a
UBC graduate and chairman of
Wright Engineers Ltd., a leading
Canadian mining and engineering
firm.
Ed Desjardins has been honored and

University funds to enable them to
reach a fund-raising goal of $25,000
for an overseas trip this spring.
The team, which won the Canadian
university championship in Toronto in
November, has been invited to take
part in an international university
tournament in Glasgow on Easter
weekend April 17-19.
The team will tour Scotland,

before entering the Baptist ministry.
He was first elected to the federal
House of Commons in 1935 and
resigned as an MP in 1944 to lead the
CCF party in Saskatchewan. He was
premier of that province until 1961,
when he was elected national leader of
the NDP, a post he held until 1971.

Clyne back as chancellor
John Valentine Clyne, a former
member of the Supreme Court of B.C.
and retired chairman and chief
executive officer of MacMillan
Bloedel, will serve a second three-year
term as chancellor of the University.
He was an easy winner over college
teacher Stan Persky in a mail ballot of
UBC's Convocation (graduates, faculty
and Senate).
Clyne received 9,022 or 69 per cent
of the 13,084 votes. Persky tallied
4,062 votes, 31 per cent. Only 18 per
cent of the eligible voters cast ballots.

Artificial intelligence, one of the
most exciting topics in computer
science but one of potential concern,
will be examined thoroughly in a
week-long international conference at
UBC in August.

Graduation cards;
this is the week
If you're expecting to graduate this
year and haven't yet filed an
"Application for Graduation" card with
the Registrar's Office, you'd better do
something about it this week.
Unless you submit a card, your
name won't appear on the list of
degree candidates that goes to Senate
for approval in May.
If you haven't received a card in the
mail, you can get one at the
Registrar's Office in The General
Services Administration Building. If
you're a graduate student ask your
graduate advisor for one.
Remember — no application, no
degree.

YEP says yes
to student jobs
The provincial government's Youth
Employment Program will be
operating again in the summer of 1981
and project applications should be
available in faculty offices this week.
The program, which pays students
to carry out projects that further their
career goals, pays first and second-year
students $650 a month, third, fourth
and fifth-year students $700 a month
and graduate students $775 a month
during the period of May 1 to Aug.
31.
YEP administrator Dick Shirran,
director of UBC's Student Counselling
and Resource Centre, said that all
projects must carry the signature of a
University faculty member or senior
administrator who is prepared to act
as a project supervisor during the term
of the project.

8 students submit
Constitution brief
Eight members of a UBC history
class have submitted a 14-page brief
on the Canadian Constitution to the
Joint Committee of Parliament on the
Constitution, in which they claim that
unilateral action by the federal
government will be at the expense of
long-range interests of Canadians.
"The federal government is
attempting to take a symbolic step to
nationhood and yet it is breaching a
constitutional convention developed in
Canada regarding provincial
consent . . .," the brief states.
The students, all members of Prof.
Murray Greenwood's History 420 class,
propose the following formula for the
patriation and creation of a new
constitution:
1. Simple patriation of the British
North America Act, with renunciation
by the British Parliament of all
legislative power over Canadian
affairs;
2. A national referendum to choose
either a federally-proposed amending
formula, a provincially-proposed
amending formula, or a national
referendum with regional majorities;
3. An elected constituent assembly.
"The only federal action would be
patriation which has already received
provincial consent," the brief says.
"The actual amendment of the
constitution would be carried out
under a new and popularly-decided
amending procedure.
Some proposals the students would
like to see embodied in the
constitution:
— The right of the deaf to a
translator in any court proceeding;
— Guarantee of protection against
unreasonable search and seizure;
— Limiting of Emergency Power;
— The right of presumption of
innocence;
— Protection against retroactive
tribunals and guilt by association;
— Protection of native language
rights;
— Protection against discrimination
based on marital status, sexual
preference, and physical and mental
handicaps. This should extend to
private and public sectors of the
economy, particularly accommodation,
Library worker dies
Funeral services were held Feb. 6 for
Mr. John Uzaraga, a UBC library
employee who died Feb. 1 at the age
of 47.
Mr. Uzaraga, a Burnaby resident,
joined UBC as a stack attendent in
Sedgewick Library in 1971 and
became stack supervisor in Woodward
Library the following year.
He is survived by his wife, Juliana,
and three children.
services, and employment.
The students stated in their brief
that there were many issues on which
they were unable to reach agreement.
These included abortion and capital
punishment, and criminal conviction
and pregnancy as bases of
discrimination.
The brief was prepared and
submitted by students Douglas Archer,
Colin Beairsto, Richard Gee, Ann
Hayward, Mark Keelan, Sandra
Leonard, Peter Seidl and Murray
Wolf.
New student
leaders take
office today
Outgoing and incoming members of
the Alma Mater Society executive will
meet today at 12:30 p.m. in the
conversation pit of the Student Union
Building for an annual general
meeting. Students, staff and faculty
are invited.
The new AMS council will be led by
president Marlea Haugen, who served
as vice-president of the outgoing
council.
Other members are Peter Mitchell,
vice-president; Bill Maslechko, director
of administration; Jane Loftus, finance
director and James Hollis, director of
external affairs.
Ms. Haugen said the council's first
priority will be to reorganize the
structure of the AMS.
"The organization has grown so
much that changes are needed in the
present system in order for it to work,"
she said. "Our first concern will be
implementing these changes."

assistants).
The contract runs from Sept. 1,
1980, to Aug. 31, 1981, and covers
wages and working conditions for
more than 1,000 teaching assistants
and markers at UBC.
Wages run from $6.15 an hour for
markers to $13.30 an hour for
graduate teaching assistants who hold
a master's degree.
Meanwhile, Local 2278 has applied
to the Labor Relations Board for
certification to represent the 12 preschool teachers and assistants at the
