 Volume 29, Number 20
November 16, 1983
This drawing by Howard/Yano Architects shows what the UBC Pulp and Paper Centre will look like when construction is
completed in about two years. The $6-million building at the northwest corner of Agronomy Road and East Mall will be for
graduate student education and research related to the pulp and paper industry. The centre should not be confused with the
Pulp and Paper Research Institute (PAPRICAN) staff research building which will be built as part of UBC's Discovery Park.

Many still negotiating
With the truce declared in the labor-vs-
government battle across the province,
here is the situation with various groups at
Faculty Association: Still negotiating
with the University on a 1983-84
agreement. Agreement expired last June
Canadian Union of Public Employees
(CUPE) Local 116: Still negotiating.
Contract expired March 31.
CUPE Local 2278 (teaching assistants):
Fred Long has been appointed as
mediation officer. Contract expired Aug.
Association of University and College
Employees (AUCE): In second year of
two-year agreement that expires March 31,
International Union of Operating
Engineers (IUOE): Still negotiating.
Contract expired March 31.
Office and Technical Employees Union
(OTEU) Local 15: Those members
employed by the University are in the
second year of a two-year contract that
expires March 31. The 11 members of the
local who are employed by the Alma
Mater Society are on strike and are
picketing the Student Union Building.
Approximately 100 University
employees who are members of CUPE
116 are refusing to cross this picket line
and are not working. Among them are 75
Food Services workers, which has resulted
in closure of the Subway cafeteria.
The strikers, without a contract since
May 31, are seeking a wage increase of 15
per cent. The AMS has offered them 5
per cent.
Change asked
in agreement
UBC's administration has called on the
University's Faculty Association to enter
into discussions on revising the Agreement
on the Framework for Collective Bargaining.
The present agreement will have been in
force five years on April 3, 1984. UBC
and the association first signed an agreement to bargain collectively outside the
Labor Code of B.C. in December, 1975.
Under the terms of the agreement the
University recognizes the association as
the sole bargaining agent for its members
on such matters as salaries and conditions
of employment.
In the event that the University and the
association are unable to agree on
economic matters, the agreement provides
for binding arbitration by an individual
acceptable to both parties.
The agreement also prohibits strikes by
members of the bargaining unit and
lockouts by the University.
BoG invites briefs on fees
UBC's Board of Governors will hear
briefs from major campus groups on Dec.
1 on the subject of student tuition fees in
general and differential fees for foreign
undergraduate students in the 1984-85
fiscal year.
Included in the group of UBC
organizations which have been invited to
make representations on fees are the Alma
Mater Society, the Graduate Students'
Association and International House.
The groups have been asked to submit
briefs in advance and a representative of
each group will be allowed to speak to its
submission for 10 minutes on Dec. 1.
The tuition-fee hearings will begin at
1:30 p.m. and continue until 2:30 p.m.,
when the Board will convene for the open
session of its regular December meeting.
However, the Board will not make a
decision about 1984-85 tuition-fee levels
until the new year.
to head
Dr. Peter Suedfeld will resign as head
of UBC's psychology department to take
up duties as the new dean of the Faculty
of Graduate Studies on July 1, 1984. /
He succeeds Dean Peter Larkin, who
will continue as UBC's vice-president for
research and a professor of animal
resource ecology.
Dr. Suedfeld joined UBC as head of the
Department of Psychology in 1972 after
five years as chairman of the psychology
department at Rutgers University in New
Jersey. He has also held teaching and
research positions at Princeton University,
Trenton State College and the University
of Illinois.
Dr. Suedfeld's research interests include
environmental psychology, information
processing and attitude change. He is best
known for his work in the area of sensory
deprivation and has developed a method
known as REST — Reduced
Environmental Stimulation Technique —
which helps patients overcome problems
with eating, smoking and relaxation. The
method involves placing patients in a
light- and sound-proof isolation chamber
to shut out environmental stimulants and
Dr. Suedfeld received a Bachelor of
Arts degree from Queen's University in
New York, and earned his Master of Arts
and doctoral degrees from Princeton

First six gardeners graduate
The first six participants have
"graduated" from a 12-week workshop in
alpine gardening offered through UBC's
Botanical Garden.
The workshop, which is made possible
through a gift from Mr. and Mrs. E.H.
Lohbrunner of Victoria, is designed to
familiarize young professionals in the
nursery trades with the care, maintenance
and propagation of alpine plant material.
"The course is offered to six candidates
per year," said Botanical Garden director
Roy Taylor. "It covers the history and
development of alpine gardening, uses of
alpine plants in landscaping, rock garden
design, soil chemistry, propagation practices and the collection of native alpines.
"Participants attend the program one
day each week, and we have a spring segment and a fall segment so that different
material and growing conditions can be

Asbestos removal
tops minor projects
Completion of the new bookstore in
June, to be followed in December by
completion of the Psychology Building,
will lead to a number of shuffles in the
assignment of space on the UBC campus.
It also means that for the first time in
more than 25 years, there will be no
major capital construction in progress
on campus.
The provincial government has
authorized the University to borrow $2.6
million for renovation projects this year,
with a ceiling of $500,000 for any single
project. These projects must be for the
purpose of meeting health, fire and
safety codes.
Here is how the money will be spent:
Removal of asbestos insulation material
from the Student Union Building,
Removal of asbestos from Animal
Science units, $230,000;
Removal of asbestos from Hebb
Theatre and the Woodward Instructional
Resources Centre, $450,000;
Reconstruction of Chemistry Stores,
Safety improvements in Chemistry,
requested by the Workers' Compensation
Board, $227,000;
Upgrading the old Bookstore to
conform to Building Code, $200,000;
Mechanical and structural alterations to
Medical Sciences Building, Block C
(safety), $225,000;
Alterations, Department of Traffic and
Security, $50,000;
Emergency lighting in various areas of
campus, $100,000;
Fire alarms, $93,000;
Miscellaneous improvements to meet
with health, safety and fire regulations,

Support for grad students tops $14 million
Financial support to graduate students at UBC this year
totals just over $14 million, including more than $6 million
in teaching assistantships and research assistantships.
Approximately 2,500 graduate students are receiving
financial support, which ranges in individual cases from a
low of $100 to a high of $16,700.
Here is the breakdown of graduate student support, as
compiled by Dr. Allan Freeze, associate dean of the
Faculty of Graduate Studies.
FELLOWSHIPS awarded in conjunction with UGF competition
(Killam, Klinck, MacMillan, Mackenzie, Wesbrook,
Meilicke, Wagner, DAAD, ETH, Vancouver Foundation
Noranda, B.C. Electronics, Alberta Heritage,
IDRC, CIDA, Transport Canada, etc.)
Notes: (1) The Teaching and Research Assistantship totals are for 1982 83. Totals for 1983 84 are not yet available.
(2) The grand total does not include need-based support in the form of loans and bursaries administered through the
Office of Awards and Financial Aid. Although precise Figures are not yet available, support for graduate students
from this source will probably be in the order of $950,000.
(3) The figures in the table are estimates based on records available to the Faculty of Graduate Studies. The total
represents a lower limit, in that there are undoubtedly additional awards that are handled directly between student
and granting agency that do not come to our attention (as for example, with many medical scholarships, and with
foreign government support).

finally wins
The long-overdue battle between
Physiology and Chemistry for the Faculty
Club darts championship and the Fisher
Trophy finally took place earlier this
month — and now the pseudo champs are
the real champs.
Chemistry visibly drooped as Tony
Pearson defeated Chemistry captain Peter
Wassell to open the door for the winning
game to be recorded by Physiology
captain Ken Curry over Bob Thompson.
The final score was 8-5 in favor of
Physiology, which now will accept
challenges from other departments.
When the Fisher Trophy arrived on
campus in early summer, it already carried
'Physiology May 1983' on the initial
winner's plate, even though Chemistry
claimed to have defeated Physiology twice
during the spring.
It was decided at the time that they
should play off before throwing the
competition open to others.
Teams are made up of six players and
all must be members of the Faculty Club.
Challenges to Physiology should be
directed through Ed Puis, Faculty Club
manager. UBC Reports November 16, 1983
Volunteer readers key to Crane service
Shortly after UBC's Crane Library for
visually impaired students opened in 1968,
it was recognized that braille books alone
could not meet the needs of the University's
blind and print handicapped students.
A facility to record  "talking books" on
cassettes was added and the library
depended on a core of volunteer readers
who donated their time to record material
needed by students.
Today, 15 years later, Crane Library has
become the largest facility of its kind in
Canada, and lends material to more than
40 countries through international loans.
But one thing remains unchanged,
according to Crane's head librarian Paul
"The library's operations would still not
be possible without the work of the
volunteer readers," he savs. "We just
couldn't function at the level we do
without their help."
UBC Reports spoke with three of Crane
Library's long-time volunteers:
Yvonne Forsythe, a 23-year employee of
UBC's Main Library, began reading for
Crane Library 14 years ago.
"They were asking people to donate one
noon-hour a week to record material,    she
recalls. "The library had recently opened
and there wasn't very much on tape.
"I started reading once a week, and
when I retired I wanted to give more lime,
so I began coming in twice a week.  1 would
miss it very much if I didn't read.  I enjoy
it and I think the students who use the
material are marvelous.
Mrs. Forsythe has the distinction of
having recorded the longest work in Crane
Library's collections        a  10-volume French
work by Victor Hugo entitled Les
Mise rabies.
"It took more than a year to complete,"
she says. "There are about 130 listening
hours on the tapes, but recording time is a
lot longer. Victor Hugo has such a
tremendous vocabulary that even though I
was familiar with reading French, I had to
spend quite a bit of time preparing for
each taping."
Soon after Mrs. Forsythe completed the
tapes of Les Miscrables, copies were
requested by the Library of Congress in the
United States.
"At the moment I'm working on a
history of Canada, but it's being done
gradually because we work on whatever
students need in a rush."
She says she is impressed with stories she
hears about visually .impaired students at
"We've been recording some nursing
textbooks and manuals for a woman who
had been working as a nurse and had lost
her sight. Now she's back at UBC studying
nursing because she wants to teach. When
1 hear of this kind of determination and
(outage, I'm glad to be helping out in any
way 1 can."
Seymour Vinebcrg, a former broadcaster
from Montreal, has also been with Crane
Library since its earliest days.
"I started reading at Crane when I
retired," he says. "A friend of mine
suggested that instead of hitting golf balls
seven days a week 1 spend an afternoon or

New clinic
opens Nov. 22
A new diagnostic and assessment clinic
for Alzheimer disease will be officially
opened in the Health Sciences Centre
Hospital on campus at 3 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 22.
Long known as "senility," the condition was thought of as virtually inevitable
in the elderly. Medical researchers now
think it is a specific disease that can strike
at any adult age, and that it is not the
natural result of aging.
The ailment is extremely common.
There are about 23,000 cases in B.C.
The clinic will be operated under a
$140,000 annual grant from the provincial
Dr. Edith McGeer of UBC's Division of
Neurological Sciences will speak on
"Chemistry of Aging: Neurotransmitters
and Alzheimer Type Dementia" in Lecture hall 3 of the Woodward Building at 7
p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 15.
And "Alzheimer's Disease: Genetics
and Natural History" will be the topic of
a talk by Dr. L.L. Heston, professor of
psychiatry at the University of Minnesota,
at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 16 in amphitheater B at the Vancouver General
"next year" for the football team.
And the women's field hockey team has
collected its second straight Canadian
championship, its fourth title in six years.
The basketball team won the annual
Buchanan Classic against Simon Fraser
University for the first time since 1970 by
thrashing the Clansmen 80-62 Saturday
night at the War Memorial Gymnasium.
Home court made the difference in the
three-game series, UBC winning the
opener 78-66 at home and then losing at
SFU by a 69-53 count.
The football team, on top 12-8 going
into the final quarter of the Canadian
semi-final game in Calgary, couldn't stop
Calgary's all-star quarterback, Greg
Vavra, when it counted. He kicked two
field goals and threw one touchdown pass
as the Dinosaurs moved into the Canadian
final against Queens with a 21-12 victory.
It may have been Frank Smith's final
appearance as Thunderbird football
coach. He announced a month ago that
this was his final season, although there
now are rumors that he will stay at UBC.
He coached the Thunderbirds to a
national championship last year, and in
five Shrum Bowl contests against Simon
Fraser, Smith's Birds won four times.
There was no Shrum Bowl this year.
Coach Gail Wilson's field hockey team-,
ranked only fourth as they went into the
championship tournament in Fredericton,
defeated the University of Toronto 2-1 in
the playoff for the Canadian
Interuniversity Athletic Union title.
Volunteer reader Yvonne Forsythe
two at Crane Library.
"When we started out. we had two little
recording booths the size of closets and
there was no place for students to sit and
listen to material when they came in.
Tt was the enthusiasm and hard work of
Paul and [tidy (Paul Thiele and his wife,
Judith, Crane's reference and collections
librarian) that kept the place going."
Mr. Vineberg is modest about his own
role in the development of the library,
which included raising private funds to
purchase the library's first tape recorders.
"It was just something that needed to be
done, so I got involved,    he says.
In those days Mr. Vineberg recorded
material both at home and in the studio.
He still reads once a week in the library.
"I feel, as 1 m sure the other readers do,
that I'm lucky to have the opportunity to
do this."
Dr. Jean Elder, a professor in LIBC's
history department, recalls her early days
recording talking books at Crane.
"We were upstairs in Brock Hall and
when we recorded books you could hear
the conversations of people walking outside
the building in the background of our
cassettes. We were amateur readers, bin
the job got done, books gol recorded.
"And with time, the facilities at Crane
improved, and we as readers improved. I
can now read things like graphs anil charts
on tape.
"I read every Friday afternoon. I
consider it the most worthwhile thing I do
all week."
3rd candidate enters race
A Richmond school principal has joined
the UBC chancellorship race.
He is Leonard P. Sampson, who got his
Bachelor of Education degree from UBC
in 1956 and his master's in Education
three years later.
Also campaigning for the chancellor's
job are the chairman of the Canadian
Chamber of Commerce, W. Robert
Wyman, and teach-author-editor Stan
Persky. Deadline for nominations was
Nov. 7.
Chancellor J.V. Clyne, who defeated
Mr. Persky in the last two chancellorship
elections, is not eligible to stand for a
third term.
The chancellor, although unpaid, is the
University's senior representative and occupies seats on the Board of Governors
and the Senate. It is the chancellor who
confers degrees on behalf of the University.
All graduates of UBC are eligible to
vote through a mail ballot to be conducted early in 1984.
The graduates also will be voting to fill
11 convocation positions on the University
Senate. They will choose from the following 21 nominees:
