 March 16, 1983
Every photographer hopes to capture a special moment or two in the course of his career. . . and for Greg Morton, a medical
photographer in UBC's Department of Biomedical Communications, one of those moments came March 9 as Queen
Elizabeth was leaving the Health Sciences Centre Hospital, the final stop on her hour-an-a-half visit to UBC. A young
spectator stepped out of the crowd as the Queen approached, presented a bouquet to her and then, remembering her
manners, curtsied, to the obvious delight of the guest of honor and the watching crowd. For another view of the royal visit,
turn to page 2 for another instalment in the UBC Reports series, "A Day in a Life at UBC."
Board approves housing increases
Most single students living in campus
residences will face slightly higher rates in
September, although a few in Totem Park
will pay less for their rooms than they are
paying this year.
The UBC Board of Governors has
approved increases averaging five per cent
in Place Vanier and Totem Park, and
increases of three per cent for the Walter
Gage Residence.
At Totem Park, however, in order to
bring daily room rates in line with those of
Place Vanier, the rate changes will range
from a decrease of 1.6 per cent to an
increase of 7.7 per cent.
The daily rate for residence food service
also goes up five per cent to (6.30.
Term fees for the period Sept. 1, 1983,
to April 30, 1984, are as follows:
Gage hi-rise-$1,628.10, Gage low-
rise— $1,720.44, Vanier/Totem
suite-$3,169.53, large single-$3,079.62,
single—$2,863.35, double—(per person)
$2,664.09. Fees for Totem Park and Place
Vanier include meals.
Rents for housing occupied by married
students in the Acadia Camp area (mostly
Second World War army huts) will
increase 27 per cent, or an average of $30
a month, to provide funds to upgrade and
repair some of the camp units. On Sept. 1,
monthly rental rates in the camp will vary
from a low of $107 to a high of $450.
A rental-rate increase for married
students occupying accommodation in
Acadia Park ( high-rise apartment block
and townhouses and units on President's
Row) will be postponed until April 1, 1984,
in order to bring the rent-increase year in
line with the UBC budget year.
The Board of Governors was told that
tenants' associations in each campus
residence area had agreed to the rental-
rate increase following consultations with
the UBC housing department.
1983 an 'exceptional' year
for UBC Conference Centre
When Susanne Nikles, manager of the
UBC Conference Centre, says that 1983 is
going to be an exceptional year for the
centre, she isn't exaggerating.
More than 30,000 delegates have booked
163,000 bed nights at UBC this summer.
"We have several big conferences booked
this summer," says Ms. Nikles. "The two
largest are the Learned Societies, a group
of 70 academic organizations spanning the
humanities and the social sciences which
■meets annually at a university setting in
Canada; and the World Council of
Churches. The Learned Societies will meet
from May 29 to June 8 and the World
Council of Churches will be here July 20 to
Aug. 11.
"Other groups attending in large
numbers are the Association of Country
Women, which is, as it sounds, a group of
women from rural areas; the Unitarian
Universalists and the Association of
In total, there will be 150 groups on
campus during the May to August period.
Ms. Nikles says she is surprised and
pleased that the current recession hasn't
affected business at the Conference Centre.
"In fact, this year we're busier than
in danger
If the provincial government stops
paying a grant to UBC to train industrial
education teachers, the program will have
to be abandoned, Dean of Education Dr.
Daniel Birch said this week.
"This program was undertaken by UBC
at government request in 1957," said Dean
Birch, "when the Faculty of Education had
only just begun. The funding has always
been via direct grant from the ministry of
education or the ministry of universities."
Now, he said, the ministry of universities
says there will be no special grant for
1983-84 and that the program should be
covered by the regular budget of the
"Certainly we could not find $1.2 million
at the expense of other education
programs; our other programs already have
been pared to the bone," Dean Birch said.
"It is disappointing to find that the
government is withdrawing special funding
for this program for which there is great
demand and interest."
There are 79 students in the program
this year, including 42 skilled craftsmen
who are taking a one-year certificate course
to qualify them as teachers of industrial
arts at the secondary school level. The
other 37 students are in third or fourth
year of the regular five-year UBC program
that leads to a bachelor's degree for
secondary education. Like the craftsmen,
they will be qualified to teach industrial
Although the program is a division of
the UBC Faculty of Education, the actual
teaching takes place at a building adjacent
to the B.C. Institute of Technology in
Burnaby. It was built with federal funds
and contains more than a million dollars
worth of special equipment — for training
in such areas as metalworking,
woodworking, electronics, power
mechanics, drafting, design, etc.
The program has 10 faculty members,
seven technical assistants and a technician.
Dean Birch, noting that UBC is the only
university involved in the training of
industrial education teachers, said that if
the minister of universities wants to tidy up
his books by making the $1.2 million part
of the government's grant to the
Universities Council, which allots funds to
UBC, Simon Fraser University and the
University of Victoria, he would have no
"So long as the money is earmarked for
the industrial education program, in
keeping with UBC's agreement with the
government, then the method of getting
the grant to us isn't important," he said.
"But it is critical to the maintenance of the
program that this million dollars be kept
separate from whatever UBC receives as a
general operating grant for 1983-84." UBC Report* March 16, 1983
A King who became Queen for a day
Joan King is the administrative clerk in
the Ceremonies Office and she is the third
person to be featured in the series, "A Day
m a Life at UBC. "
Although many people on campus know
there is a Ceremonies Office (the director is
Dr. Ben Moyls, head of the Department of
Mathematics), few realize just what is
involved in making sure that something like
the annual Spring Congregation for the
granting of degrees goes off without a hitch
for three consecutive days. The behind-the-
scenes detail and the necessary liaison with
the Faculty Club, food services, physical
plant, the registrar's office, traffic and
security, off-campus printers, etc. is largely
the responsibility of Joan King.
Then there are 'extras' such as the Royal
Visit. Invitations to the Museum of
Anthropology, invitations to the Asian
Centre, invitations to the Health Sciences
Centre Hospital and the ensuing replies,
parking permits and countless other
UBC Reports asked Joan King about her
work in general and about one day in
particular. It was two days before the
Royal Visit and it was 'dry run' or
'practice' day, with Joan King playing the
key role; it was the day King got to be
Queen. Here is Joan King:
The Ceremonies Office at UBC is a
wonderful, interesting and exciting place to
Life at Ceremonies right now is
providing such a variety of functions, with
number one being the Royal Visit on
March 9.
Today, Monday, I started with my first
appointment at 9 a.m. in the Asian
Centre, to set the stage for my first dry run
at 10 a.m. as 'The Queen.' It went well,
even though the Japanese drum dancers

Talk to my printer about Congregation,

Engineering proposal sent back to Senate
UBC's Senate will have a proposed four-
year engineering program in the Faculty of
Applied Science back on its agenda when it
meets tonight (March 16).
The proposed program, which went to
UBC's Board of Governors on March 3
after receiving academic approval by
Senate at its February meeting, was
referred back to Senate by the Board for
further review.
Spearheading opposition to the program
at the March 3 Board meeting were UBC's
Chancellor, J.V. Clyne, and Allan R.
Crawford, a provincial government
appointee, both of whom characterized the
four-year program as a "serious mistake."
Mr. Clyne said present-day students need
to have their education broadened, adding
that he was concerned about the quality of
education engineering students would
receive under the proposed program.
Mr. Crawford said the students
graduating from the four-year program
would be "followers rather than leaders."
He said he had asked colleagues in 35
companies across Canada for their opinion
of the program and without exception they
thought it was a mistake.
Board member Gerald Hobbs said he
thought the proposal was a downgrading of
tue engineering program and the result
would be that UBC would cease to have
the reputation for excellence that it now
Support for the program came from two
UBC faculty members elected to the
Board. Prof. Hugh Greenwood of the
geological sciences department said studies
had shown that a four-year program was
adequate for preparing students for careers
in engineering.
Prof. Peter Pearse of economics and
forestry noted that the four-year program
had the endorsation of the Association of
Professional Engineers of B.C. "I have to
infer from the proposal," he said, "that it
can be implemented without a diminution
in academic standards."
President Douglas Kenny, noting that the
arguments against the program had also
been raised in Senate, said the applied
science faculty was not about to debase
academic standards. The proposed scheme,
he said, would enable a group of highly
qualified students to get their degrees over a
shorter span of time.
He said the Board was being asked to
approve the new program in principle and
added that there would be cost impacts
which he would bring forward for Board
consideration on another occasion. There
were no guarantees that the proposed four-
year program would be in place for the
1983-84 winter session, he said.
Botanical Garden co-hosts CBC series
UBC's Botanical Garden has launched a
television gardening show called The
Western Gardener.
The 52-week series is sponsored by the
B.C. Nursery Trades Association and is co-
hosted by David Tarrant, education coordinator of the UBC Botanical Garden,
and Bob Switzer of the CBC.
Included in the show are seasonal weekly
tips as well as unusual new plant material
from the Botanical Garden.
It airs at 10:30 a.m. Sunday mornings
on CBC-TV and is repeated during the
gold shovel and watering can ready — no
tree can grow properly without the
blessings of the Chancellor and the
Learned that some cedar trees had
sprung up overnight, or at least over the
weekend, at the Asian Centre — right
where the media were scheduled to be for
the Queen's visit. I think the Dean of Trees
was out there in the middle of the
night.  .  .
Off to the Asian Centre again at 3:30
p.m. for another round of being the Queen
and then at four o'clock it was time for the
dry run at the museum. This time Prince
Philip, as portrayed by Ben Moyls, was
part of the act. All went well, I think.
Back to the office to do some place cards
for a dinner (Ed. note: among her many
accomplishments, Joan King is an expert
calligrapher) and bring some lists up to
date for next day. Left for home about
6:30 p.m.
So that was Monday, March 7, but one
of the great things about this job is that no
two days are the same. And I must make it
clear that when you are co-ordinating a
large function such as Spring Congregation
or a Royal Visit, you can not make it work
all by yourself.
Rosanne Rumley, administrative
assistant for the Cecil H. and Ida Green
Visiting professorships, has an adjoining
office and willing puts her own work aside
to pitch in and help me when the pace
becomes frantic.
Tactile atlas
A three-year joint project between UBC's
Crane Library and SFU cartographer Ray
Squirrell has resulted in a tactile atlas
which can be 'read' by the blind and
visually impaired.
The atlas uses four textures — smooth,
abrasive, fuzzy and granular — in a
combination of horizontal, curved or
vertical stripes, solid blocks or chevrons, to
provide information on anthropological,
demographic, historical, economic or
geographical features of B.C.
"The project began in 1979 when the
UBC Press first published the Atlas of
British Columbia by A.L. Farley," says
Crane Library head, Paul Thiele. "The
first copy was auctioned off for the purpose
of funding research for a project, which at
that time was simple envisaged as
recording the atlas in a talking book
"Then I heard about some work being
done in this area by Prof. Squirrell, and
it's been a collaborative effort ever since."
In addition to the tactile surfaces, the
atlas features clear colors for those with low
vision and an accompanying text in large
print, braille or on recorded tape.
Although the atlas is not for sale, copies
will be donated to the B.C. Ministry of
Education's Provincial Resource Centre for
the Visually Impaired for use by blind
students in the regular school system, the
Simon Fraser University Library, the
Canadian National Institute for the Blind,
and a number will remain in Crane
Library for use by UBC students and for
inter-library lending.
Crane Library will be holding an Open
House on Thursday, March 24 and Friday,
March 25 from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. UBC
faculty, staff and students are invited to
view the library on Thursday, and Friday
will be set aside for blind and visually
impaired students and their instructors.
