be done. Rick can provide us with that leadership and expertise," Strangway explained.
UBC wants to ensure that students, faculty
and staff with disabilities have the opportunity
to reach their full potential, he said. That means
developing a long-term strategy to make it

Adam-Moodley works
on cultural makeup
As director of the new Multicultural Liaison Office, Kogila Adam-
Moodley wants to see that Canada's
changing cultural makeup is reflected
at UBC.
She will consult with and advise the
university administration on ethnic relations issues on campus. But she also
wants to reach out from Point Grey to
touch the lives of others in B.C. in an
attempt to polish up the sometimes tarnished Canadian cultural mosaic.
"Concerns have been expressed
about how public schools can best
address the new needs arising from the
multicultural nature of their students,
but as yet we have not paid attention to
the changing needs within post-secondary education," she said.
"We need to look at a traditional
institution such as ours to see if it's
meeting the needs of a population which
is no longer homogeneous. Many departments at UBC are already engaged
in research and teaching that focuses on
the cross-cultural realm. I want to look
at ways of extending this relationship
with a new public."
Adam-Moodley, an associate professor in Social and Educational Studies since 1978, has lived in Canada for
20 years. Born in South Africa of In-

Opera to perform Figaro
The UBC Opera Theatre celebrates its
25th anniversary this month with its most
ambitious production ever — Mozart's
The Marriage of Figaro.
For director French Tickner, who has
guided the opera company since its inception in 1964, the production has added
significance.   ,
"I've wanted to do the Marriage of
Figaro for 25 years. It's my very favorite
opera of all time," he said.
Tickner also feels the upcoming pro
duction marks a turning point for the
UBC company. Mozart's operas require
performances with a discipline, subtlety
and maturity not often found in young,
unseasoned performers.
"I feel this is arite of passage for the
program. If you can sing Mozart well,
then you can sing almost anything,'' he
The Illinois-born Tickner, 58, is a
classically trained actor who turned to
opera relatively late in life, at age 25.
He has seen UBC's company grow
from its beginnings as a summer school
of opera in 1961, through its incorporation into the Bachelor of Music program
three years later, to its current standing as
a company recognized for its vital interpretations of traditional and modem works.
The Marriage of Figaro opens Friday,
March 17, at 8 p.m. in the Old Auditorium. It continues on Saturday, March 18,
Monday, March 20, and ends on Tuesday, March 21. Ticket information is

and cultural aspects ofthe university.
Strangway said UBC will set an example for other institutions across the
country and become a provincial and

dian descent, she comes from a country
where differences in race and language
are used as weapons to divide people.
But she believes that we can learn
from the mistakes of South Africa and
from ethnic relations in other countries.
Before becoming Director of Multicultural Liaison last autumn, Adam-Moodley was coordinator of the multicultural
teacher program in the Faculty of Education. She also serves as the Canadian
Coordinator ofthe International Association of Intercultural Education. With
Heribert Adam, a sociology professor at
Simon Fraser University, she co-authored
the book, South Africa Without Apartheid: Dismantling Racial Domination.
"In Canada, we see ethnicity as a
good thing," she said.' 'We respect the
differences between people, but still try to
focus on the similarities. It is important
here to stress the interconnections."
Those connections can also be used to
bridge the gap between the university and
other communities in the province.
Adam-Moodley wants to hold a series
of public education workshops on different themes to attract people to campus:
themes such as immigration, human rights,
education and minority participation in
the workplace.
These meetings could also dispel
popular myths (immigrants take away
jobs, for example) and turn attention to
the contributions various immigrant groups
have made to the country.
'' We need to work toward changing
peoples' perceptions of who Canadians
are, and that they comprise a range of
people," she said. "Multiculturalism has
changed Vancouver from being a provincial city to one where we see a global
influence. We need to take advantage of
create a greater level of access," he said.
One of Hansen's main tasks will be
investigating the feasibility of establishing a centre on campus to coordinate and
carry out studies related to disabled issues
— something Hansen said had long been
a personal dream.
"It was something I thought about
even while attending UBC as a student
and encountering difficulties."
In his new position, Hansen will also
set up a formal network at UBC to encourage advocacy on behalf of students,
faculty and staff and bring about changes
on an ongoing basis; promote liaison with
campus organizations and outside agencies involved in disability issues; develop
community resources for the general public
and off-campus agencies; and initiate public
education programs.
"I hope this concept will be a role
model to be adopted by other Canadian
universities and institutions around the
world," Hansen said.
According to Strangway, the number
of disabled students currently enroled at
UBC is unknown, but more than 100
regularly use services available at the
Student Counselling Centre. Enrolment
is expected to increase in the future.
A graduate of UBC, Hansen was the
first disabled student to enrol in the School
of Physical Education in 1976. He was
awarded an honorary degree by the university 11 years later after raising $20-
million for spinal cord research, rehabilitation, wheelchair sport and recreation,
and ongoing awareness in a round-the-
world wheelchair odyssey.
Macolm Knapp
Founder of
research forest
Former UBC Forestry professor Malcolm Knapp, founder of the UBC research forest in Maple Ridge, died at
his home Feb. 22.
Bom in East Homer, N.Y., in 1897,
Knapp's forestry career spanned seven
decades. He arrived at UBC in 1922
after receiving a masters' degree in
forest engineering from the University
of Washington—the second faculty
member to join UBC's fledgling Forestry department, then part of the Faculty of Applied Science.
A pioneer in forestry education, he
was, for a period during the 1930s Depression, the only Forestry professor at
' 'Not only did he teach every course
in the Forestry department, but he kept
the flickering flame of forestry education alive in difficult times when it was
facing extinction," said Robert Kennedy, Forestry faculty dean.
Knapp taught at UBC urfcjl his retirement in 1963. t
He was instrumental in aquiring
and developing the 5,157-hectare research forest at Maple Ridge for the
Faculty of Forestry. He made the first
surveys of the site, which officially
opened in 1949. Since Knapp's early
leadership, it has grown into one ofthe
largest and most accessible university
research facilities of its kind in North
It was renamed the Malcolm Knapp/
UBC Research Forest in his honor in
March 1988.
Knapp was the first Registered Professional Forester in B.C. and acted as
Registrar ofthe Association of B.C.
Professional Foresters from 1947 to
1972. In 1945, he served as president
of the B.C. Association of Professional
Predeceased by his wife, Knapp is
survived by three married daughters,
10 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren.

U.S. favors medicare
system like Canada's
Continued from Page 1
A Harris Poll last month indicated
more than 60 per cent ofthe American
public favors a system like Canada's. A
national commission that includes three
former presidents has also proposed
sweeping changes in health-care funding.
"The United States and South Africa
are the only developed countries without
some form of universal health care,'' said
Dr. Low. "I think Americans have to
move in that direction."
Dr. Low says the Harris Poll caught
U.S. health-care and government officials off guard.
' 'It has taken everybody by surprise,"
he said. "During the presidential election
campaign, most experts thought the issue
wasn't very important. Now it's clear
Americans are so frustrated with the existing system that they want to abandon
Presidents Nixon, Carter and Ford sit
on the National Leadership Commission
on Health Care which concluded that the
United States "cannot call itself healthy
if as many as one out of four Americans
may lack adequate access to health care.''
The commission found that 37-million
Americans lack any health insurance. Of
those, 11 million are children.
Introducing a universal national health
care plan would cost the federal government an estimated $ 15-billion annually.

for its expertise in artificial
intelligence systems and control
techniques for the pulp and paper
industry. The School of Nursing
recently opened a new research unit
that will examine problems in family
and cross-cultural health care, aging
and management of chronic illness.
Economics, geography, languages
and psychology all find a home under
the umbrella of the Faculty of Arts.
The Department of Geography has
been recognized as one of the five
best in the English-speaking world.
Music and theatre have been part of
UBC since the beginning.
But it is only in the last few
years that degrees have
become available in drama,
film and television, and
creative writing.
UBC's Faculty of
Commerce and Business
Administration is widely
recognized as one of the
best in Canada. It's a world
leader in accounting and
finance research. The
faculty is also putting UBC
on the Pacific Rim map.

Point Grey by election
UBC fees dominate candidates' debate
Debate on UBC's tuition fee increase
dominated a campus all-candidates meeting for the Vancouver-Point Grey bye-
While candidates opposed the increase,
most were sympathetic to the university's financial problems which led the
Board of Governors to raise next year's
fees by lOpercent.
However, Social Credit candidate
Michael Levy was critical of the board.
"Your Board of Governors, without
knowing what their budget is going to be
this year, raised the fees. I don't think
that's fair," Levy told the meeting.
New Democrat Dr. Tom Perry, a
UBC professor, also voiced his opposition to the fee increase but said provincial
funding for the university is the major
"I hope you are all aware that university funding in this province has deteriorated tremendously since the restraint
program of 1981," said Dr. Perry.
The Green Party's Valerie Parker has the attention of Vancouver-Point Grey
candidates at an all-candidates meeting at the SUB. From the left: Michael Levy
(Social Credit), Bob Seeman (Independent), Gordon Wilson (Liberal), Parker and
Dr. Tom Perry (NDP).
Bob Seeman, a UBC law student
running as an independent, said the government should step in to help students.
"I call upon Premier Bill Vander
Zalm to provide additional money to roll
back that tuition £ee hike, and to recog
nize that education is the key to the future
of B.C.," Seeman told the crowd.
Seeman said he led a delegation to
Victoria last fall to persuade the Ministers
of Finance and Advanced Education to
boost UBC funding by $3-million.
"That was an attempt on behalf of all
students to prevent the 10-per-cent increase before it happened," he said.
Liberal Gordon Wilson called for an
immediate freeze on tuition increases at
all B.C. universities.
' 'We believe there has to be a change
in the funding mechanism for universities," he said. "We would revise the act
to insure federal money earmarked for
education goes directly into post-secondary education."
Valerie Parker, the Green Party candidate, said it is obscene that the government is bragging about a budget surplus
at a time when universities are struggling.
But she said environmental issues are
more important than the tuition fee issue.
"These are the real issues. Tuition
fees don't kill." she said.
The Vancouver-Point Grey byelec-
tion will be held March 15. It was called
after Kim Campbell resigned to seek a
federal seat in Vancouver-Center.
Faculty pact
this month
The arbitration panel to settle
contract negotiations between the
university and the Faculty Association is expected to hand down its
award this month.
Attempts at mediation failed to
resol ve the dispute, which centres
on monetary issues. The association
represents about 2,000 faculty members, librarians and continuing education program directors.
In other labor news, contract talks
are continuing with CUPE Local
116. which represents about 1,600
trades workers on campus and with
CUPE Local 2950 (CUE), which
represents about 1,400 clerical and
library staff. Both contracts expire
March 31.
Also up for re-negotiation is the
contract with the International Union of Operating Engineers, Local
882, which bargains for 32 mechanical maintenance and steam plant
