Plans for
UBC's president, Dr. Douglas T. Kenny, has
'announced plans for a series of small-group meetings
with representatives of all segments of the University
community, as well as a series of larger public
meetings designed "to help inform the University
community and the public of the aims, problems and
aspirations of UBC."
Dates of the meetings, which will take place during
the 1975-76 Winter Session, will be announced in the
near future.
In an open letter issued on Aug. 29, President
Kenny said that, beginning in the fall, he and others
from the President's Office would begin meeting on a
continuing basis with a variety of small, informal
groups of faculty, students, staff and members of the
general public.
The purpose of the meetings with faculty members
will be to get their advice on academic problems and
policies, those with students to hear their views on
issues of concern to them, and those with members of
the non-academic staff to learn more about their
problems and contributions.
The purpose of the small, informal meetings with
members of the community at large is "to discover
more about their ideas of the University and how it
might better serve their needs."
President Kenny's letter said the University
community and the general public would also be
invited to participate in two kinds of larger public
meetings — a series of public seminars entitled "The
University Today" and a semi-annual "University
Open Forum."
At The University Today series, President Kenny
and other members of the administration and the
University will discuss "certain subjects central to an
understanding of the University, such as its basic
purpose, its relation to society and the nature of its
internal functions and organization."
The semi-annual University Open Forum will
provide the general public with the opportunity
"both to learn more about the University and to raise
questions of concern." The first forum will be held in
the late fall, to be followed by another in the spring.
President Kenny said his announcement regarding
the meetings stems from an open letter he issued on
July 2, the day after he became UBC's seventh
president, in which he.expressed the belief that "a
university should not only speak but listen."
The full texts of President Kenny's letters of Aug.
29 and July 2 appear on Page Three of this issue of
UBC Reports.
New enrolment
record possible
UBC will almost certainly have another record
enrolment for its 1975-76 Winter Session, but UBC
officials are uncertain about what effect the current
economic downturn will have on student registration.
The summer of '75 has been a bad one for student
jobs and that could mean that many students won't
have enough money to pay fees and expenses over the
next eight months.
On the other hand, there's some evidence to
indicate   that   in   times   of  recession   many   people

Period of uncertainty about proposed Aquatic
Centre on the UBC campus ended last week
when UBC's Board of Governors and
Students' Council reaffirmed support of the
project.   Tenders for Stage I of the building
Tender call
shortly for
UBC's new indoor swimming pool will definitely
go ahead.
A period of uncertainty about the future of the
Aquatic Centre ended last week when both the Board
of Governors of the University of B.C. and the
Students' Council affirmed their support of the
project. Tenders are expected to be called shortly.
The centre is to be built in stages at a total
estimated cost of $4.7 million. Stage I of the project
is expected to cost about $2.7 million.
Financing for this first stage is now firm. The
University and the AMS will each contribute
$925,000, a contribution of $333,333 is anticipated
from the provincial government's Community
Recreation Fund, and a public fund drive beginning
early in 1976 is expected to raise more than the
balance necessary to complete Stage I.
While Stage I is under way the fund drive will
continue, additional contributions will be sought
from federal and provincial governments, and the
University expects to be able to make a further
contribution. Together these funds should be enough
to make the Aquatic Centre a useable and useful
addition to the campus's academic and recreational
facilities. The pool will also be a major resource for
the entire B.C. community.
The breakthrough on this project, which UBC
President Douglas Kenny said is "long overdue",
came at a meeting of the Board of Governors on
Tuesday, Sept. 2.
The   Board,   despite  urgings  from  students  and
are expected to be called shortly. Archi

others, had been reluctant to approve the project
because of some uncertainty about the ultimate
financing of the pool.
After a review of the financial prospects. President
Kenny called on the Board members to make "an act
of courage and optimism" in giving the go-ahead
signal. The Board responded by approving final
drawings for the centre and authorizing a call for
tenders on construction of Stage I, provided that
certain conditions were met by the AMS, and that the
$333,333 contribution from Victoria was assured.
With these provisos, the Board then gave its
"wholehearted endorsement" to the proposed fund
drive and pledged its "commitment to construction
of the pool at the earliest possible time."
At its meeting the next night, the Students'
Council accepted the Board's conditions. These were
that the AMS provide a definitive statement by Sept
15 that clearing of the site for the pool should be
recommenced, and that the AMS reaffirm "its
interest in proceeding with the project and its pledge
of unqualified support and participation of its
membership in the fund-raising campaign."
The council also approved staging of the
construction project, which is necessary because the
Board of Governors cannot let a contract for the
entire project without having all the funds in hand.
The Community Recreation Fund contribution of
$333,333 also now seems firmer. A delegation led by

O Profiles   of  UBC's   four vice-presidents
UBC has four vice-presidents as the result of
appointments approved by the Board of Governors in June and July. All the vice-presidents
will report to UBC's new president, Dr. Dbuglas
T. Kenny, who took office July 1, and will assist
him in the long-range and day-to-day administration of the University. For Mr. William White,
long-time employee of UBC, the appointment as
vice-president and bursar Involved only a change
of title. Prior to July 1, his title was deputy
president and bursar. An organizational chart for
the University appears in this issue of UBC
Reports on Pages Four and Five. What follows
are brief profiles of the four new vjce-presidents.
Prof. Michael Shaw, UBC's new vice-president of
University Development, says jokingly that when his
new post was announced he got a letter from an
academic friend in the East who, after congratulating
him, asked if the word "development" in his title meant
development up or down.
It's quite obvious from talking to Prof. Shaw that his
own conception of the job involves upward development
in the future.
As vice-president for University Development, Prof.
Shaw will have overall responsibility for the planning,
co-ordination and development of the University's
academic affairs. In addition to attending meetings of
UBC's Board of Governors and the Committee of Deans,
he will be the only one of UBC's four vice-presidents
who will sit as a voting member of the Senate, UBC's
academic parliament.
The new Universities Act specifies that the academic
vice-president, or equivalent, shall be a member of
He also plans to continue teaching in the Faculty of
Agricultural Sciences, the faculty he came to UBC to
head in 1967 from the University of Saskatchewan,
where he was head of the Biology department; to
continue to supervise the work of graduate students; and
to maintain his research laboratory for the investigation
of fungal parasites, such as wheat rust, and their host
plants. He is internationally known for this latter
activity and has won numerous honors from professional
Prof. Shaw believes that the basic strength of a
university lies in the academic health of its basic
components, its faculties and departments.
"The role of the administrator," he adds, "is to do
everything possible to strengthen and develop the
teaching and research program of the University.
"The beneficiaries of this strengthening are the
students, who have a right to expect that the University
will do everything in its power to hire good teachers, and
faculty members, who will be able to get on with their
research, which I regard as being as necessary for
intellectual vitality and originality as breathing is for life
Prof. Shaw doesn't believe that the strengthening and
development of UBC's teaching and research program
2/UBC Reports/Sept. 8.1975
necessarily involves the infusion of large sums of money.
"Development," he says, "can be accomplished through
internal change, including the rearrangement of
academic and financial priorities."
An area of special concern to Prof. Shaw is that of
interdisciplinary studies, which have been growing
steadily in recent years as faculty members in different
departments and faculties discover that their teaching
and research interests are similar.
"This is also an area that has some special problems
attached to it," says Prof. Shaw. "It would be contrary
to academic tradition to simply impose on two or more
faculties or departments an interdisciplinary program.
The program must, in the first instance, have the
wholehearted support and co-operation of the faculty
members concerned. That can't be accomplished
without long and often difficult consultation."
Prof. Shaw says UBC's new president, Dr. Douglas T.
Kenny, "wants an office that will be responsive to good
ideas, whether they come from the community, the
faculty or students."
The president, Prof. Shaw adds, also wants an office
that knows what's going on in the University. And since
resigning as dean of Agricultural Sciences and taking
over his new job on July 1, Prof. Shaw has been busy
finding out what's going on in the areas he's responsible
for by studying terms of reference, present activities and
Prof. Shaw believes that his area of responsibility is
perhaps less well defined than those of his fellow
vice-presidents. But he does have a clear personal vision
of what a university education involves, a vision which
he gave voice to last May when he gave the Convocation
address and received an honorary Doctor of Science
degree at Macdonald College of McGill University, the
institution where Prof. Shaw received his Bachelor and
Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees in
the 1940s.
Here is what he said in his address, which was entitled
"Plus Ultra — There is More Beyond": "...the essence of
a university education lies in learning to think critically,
in intellectual vitality and rigor, in the art of creative
conceptualization. I mean that these arts cannot be
neglected by the university teacher, whatever he or she is
teaching; and cannot be neglected by the student
whatever he or she is learning to do or be."
Prof. Erich Vogt, UBC's new vice-president of faculty
and student affairs, wears two hats.
On the one hand he is responsible for ensuring the
academic excellence of faculty appointments and the
granting of promotions and tenure.
On the other, he's responsible for the overall
management and improvement of those campus services
that affect students, including UBC residences, the
Department of Food Services and the campus
As vice-president of faculty affairs, says Prof. Vogt,
his role will be a supportive one in aiding UBC faculties
and departments in their search for the best teachers and
researchers available, and he adds with some emphasis,
"in Canada and elsewhere, if necessary."
Prof. Vogt acknowledges that there are a lot of
problems involved in making suitable appointments to
the UBC faculty, but he does not. believe that UBC
should embark on a policy that excludes non-Canadians
from being appointed.
"Clearly," he says, "where an appointment requires
knowledge of the Canadian scene, every effort should be
made to appoint a qualified Canadian. And if a
department is heavily loaded with non-Canadians, an
extra effort should be made to restore a proper balance
of qualified Canadian academics.
"But where these matters are not strong
considerations, it's my view that the University should
seek to appoint the most highly qualified applicants,
giving, of course, preference to Canadians among
candidates of equal competence. This has, in my
understanding, been the practice at UBC for a long time
and is now being adopted at many other universities."
Prof. Vogt also hastens to add that it will not be his
function to initiate appointments or to wrest from the
departments and faculties of the University their
decision-making powers regarding appointments to the
teaching and research staff.
At the same time, he says, part of his task is to look
carefully at all proposed appointments in terms of the
overall academic requirements of the University and to
try to ensure that standards of excellence are
In short, he says, the name of the game is "making
UBC better academically."
As vice-president for student services. Prof.Vogt says
his main task will be to act as a catalyst for seeing that
student services are well managed and responsive to the
needs of the University community.
"I'm not a proponent of the company-town
philosophy," he says. "And I believe that students
should have a substantial input to the services that affect
them. One of my concerns right now is to determine
whether student input is sufficient and to see if it can be
Two areas that have been taking up a lot of Prof.
Vogt's time since he started his new job on July 1 have
been questions affecting student residences and financial
aid, matters that are likely to loom large in September
because of the housing shortage in the Lower Mainland
and the lack of summer jobs for students.
Prof. Vogt frankly believes that UBC should look
carefully before it embarks on the construction of
additional student residences. He acknowledges that
many students derive substantial benefits from living in
residence but adds, "I think there's a danger that the
student living in residence will become isolated from the
community he or she is a part of."
Since taking office, Prof. Vogt has taken steps to
bring to fruition a plan to obtain space in a downtown
hotel, where students can stay temporarily or for longer
periods during the 1975-76 Winter Session-. The Sands
Hotel on Davie Street near English Bay has agreed to
make nearly 100 beds available for this pilot project.
Prof. Vogt has also been meeting regularly with UBC
officials responsible for the administration of financial
aid and with AMS representatives concerned with this
area. This year the University has had to cope with an
unusually large volume of aid applications because of the
lack of adequate summer employment opportunities.
Despite this involvement with sensitive areas of
University operations. Prof. Vogt has no intention of
giving up his association with the University's academic
A member of the UBC Department of Physics since
1965, he also played an important role in the creation of
TRIUMF, the new $36-million cyclotron that started
operating on the UBC campus in December, 1974.
He plans to teach a first-year physics course — "I've
always taught first-year students " — supervise the work
of four graduate students, and serve as chairman of
TRIUMF's board of management, which is responsible
for the overall management of that development's
affairs. This year, he is also president of the Vancouver
Institute, a tcwn-gown organization that sponsors a
Saturday-night lecture series on the campus.
Mr. William White, who officially became
vice-president and bursar of the University on July 1,
says he can't remember exactly how many titles he's had
in the 25 years that he's been a member of the
University's senior administrative staff.
In his time he's been deputy president and bursar (a

Mr. William White, vice-president and
bursar of the University, is also secretary
to UBCs Board of Governors. As Board
secretary he assembles documentation for
Board meetings, researches material for
the Board and its committees, and
supervises the implementation of many
Board decisions. He's also a member of
two standing committees of the
Universities Council, the provincial body
established to serve as an intermediary
between the public universities of B.C.
and the provincial government. See box
on page opposite for a description of Mr.
White's duties as vice-president and bursar
of UBC;
The Board of Governors is charged with the management, administration
and control of the revenue, business and affairs of the University. It
appoints the president, deans, officials, non-academic employees, and
members of the teaching staff, and fixes their salaries, duties and tenure.
However, the Board may only appoint, promote and remove membersof
the faculty, or teaching staff, on-the recommendation of the president.
The Board also approves plans and awards contracts for new buildings;
approves the capital and operating budget of the University; determines
the number of students that can be accommodated by the University or
any faculty, subject to the approval of Senate; controls vehicle and
pedestrian traffic on campus; and has the power to deal with patents,
inventions, copyrights, etc.
Under the new Universities Act, the Boards of Governors of B.C.'s three
public universities are increased in size from 11 to 15 members. For the
first time, two faculty members, two students, and one member of the
non-faculty employed staff are Board members. Other members are the
chancellor, the president, and eight persons appointed by the provincial
cabinet. Two of the eight provincial government appointees on the UBC
Board are chosen from a list of nominees nominated by the UBC Alumni
Association. UBC's current Board members are:
The chancellor — Mr. Donovan Miller, a UBC graduate who is
vice-chairman of the Board of Directors of the Canadian Fishing Co. He
was installed as chancellor on May 30 and will serve a three-year term.
The president - Dr. Douglas T. Kenny, former dean of the Arts faculty at
UBC, became president on July 1, and will be officially installed in that
office on Sept. 17. (See story on Page One).
Two members of the faculty elected by the faculty for three-year terms:
Prof. Gideon Rosenbluth, Department of Economics; and Prof. William
Webber, professor of anatomy and associate dean of the Faculty of
Two students elected uy the students for one-year terms: Mr. Richard
"Rick" Murray, a fourth-year engineer in the Faculty of Applied Science;
and Mr. Svend Robinson,a third-year student in the Faculty of Law.
One member of the non faculty employed staff of UBC elected by the
non-academic staff - Mr. Ken Andrews, an electrician employed by
UBC s Depart ment of Physical Plant.
Eight persons appoint, '.y the Lieutenant-Governor in Council (the
provincial cabinet) - "Tfie Hon. Thomas A. Dohm, QC, a Vancouver
lawyer; Mr. Clive Lytic, .official of the B.C. Federation of Labor; Mr,
George Morfitt, a Varifcouvei chartered accountant; Miss Sadie Boyles, a
former professor in UBC's Education faculty and the Board's honorary
secretary; Ms. Pat M. Chubb, an employee of the Surrey School Board;
Mr. Bing Wing Thom, a designer for a firm of Vancouver architects; and
the Rev. George Hermamon, a chaplain on the UBC campus. One of the
eight positions under this category of Board membership was vacant until
recently as the result ef the resignation of Mr. Charles Connaghan from
the Board to accept the post of vice-president for administrative services
at UBC. His appointment is effective Oct. 6. (See box below). Mr.
Benjamin B. Trevino,—^. ^.C graduate and former AMS president, has
replaced Mr. Connaghan an the Board. Mr. Trevino was a member of the
Board u nder the old UnivtrsltiesA ct.
Earlier this year, UBCs Board of Governors decided to open its meetings
to the public and the news media. Most of the Board's business is now
conducted in public. Fiftten seats are available for interested membersof
the University and offV-^pus public. Admission to Board meetings is
available on a f irst-come.first-served basis on appl icat ion at least 24 hou rs
in advance of each rrvscfcuj by calling Mrs. Sheila Stevenson, in the
President's Office, 22&212}-. The Board normally meets at 4:30 p.m. on
the first Tuesday of each month, except January and August. Meetings are
held in the Board and Senate Room of the Main Mall North
Administration Building.
Senate is the supreme academic body of the
University and the new Universities Act states
explicitly that "The academic governance of
the University is vested in the Senate." Senate
sets admission standards, recommends to the
Board of Governors the establishment or
discontinuance of faculties, departments,
courses, etc., and has the power to establish,
committees to deal with matters referred to it
by the Board of Governors, to assist the
president in preparation of the University
budget, and to hear final appeals on matters
of student discipline. Senate also determines
the conditions, conduct and results of
examinations, and approves the award of
academic and honorary degrees. In general,
the new Universities Act provides for more
contact between the Senate and the Board.
The new act nominally provides for 79
Senators, including 17 students, as opposed to
99 under the old act. However, the new act
includes a clause which allows Senate to add
to its membership. Earlier this year. Senate
voted to increase from 4 to 11 the number of
members elected by the University's
Convocation, which is made up of all the
graduates and the faculty at UBC. The
meeting to elect these additional Convocation
members will be held on Wednesday, Sept.
10, at 7:00 p.m. in the Old Auditorium at
UBC. (See story on Page Seven). The election
of these Convocation members will raise
membership on UBC's Senate to 86 persons.
Categories of elected or appointed Senators
include: the chancellor; the president, who is
also chairman of Senate; the academic
vice-president, or equivalent (in UBC's case, the
vice-president of university development); the
deans of the faculties; the chief librarian; the
director of continuing education; 34 faculty
members; 17 students; and 11 Convocation
Senate meetings, which are open to the public,
are held in the Board and Senate Room of the
Main Mall North Administration Building.
Thirty tickets are available for the Senate-
visitor's gallery. Tickets may be obtained by
applying to Mrs. Frances Medley, Clerk to the
Senate, 228-2951. Her office is in the General
Services Administration Building. Senate
meetings begin at 8:00 p.m. and are normally
held on the second Wednesday in each month.
Later in the academic year the meetings are
sometimes scheduled for the third Wednesday
in the month. Senate normally meets 10 times a
year, September through June. This year, the
first meeting will be held on Sept. 10 at 8:00
p.m., immediately following the special
meeting of Convocation mentioned above.
Under the Universities Act, UBC's
Registrar, Mr. J.E.A. Parnall, serves as
secretary of the Senate. He's also the secretary of Convocation and of each of the
University's faculties, but he has no vote.
Mr. Parnall compiles the documentation
that goes out to Senators in advance of
Senate meetings and is responsible for
the implementation of many of the decisions made by Senate. The Registrar's
Office is responsible for keeping student
records and compiling the lists of students who are awarded degrees by the
The president meets regularly with the Com mittee of Deans
to discuss a wide range of University business. In addition to
the deans of UBC's 12 faculties, membership on the
committee includes Dr. Margaret Fulton, the dean of
Women, and the co-ordinator of Health Sciences at UBC.
Or. Harold Copp, the head of one of the departments in the
Faculty of Medicine, is currently acting co-ordinator of
Health Sciences following the retirement earlier this year of
Dr. John F. McCreary. UBCs faculties and their deans are:
Agricultural Sciences — acting dean Prof. Warren Kitts.
Prof,    Michael   Shaw,   now   UBC's   vice-president   of
University  Development, was dean of this faculty until
June 30 this year.
' Applied Science — Dean W.D. Liam Finn.
Arts - Dean Robert M. Will.
Commerce and Business Administration — Dean Noel
Dentistry — Dean S. Wah Leung.
Education — Dean John H.M. Andrews.
Forestry — Dean Joseph Gardner.
Graduate Studies — Dean Peter Larkin.
Law - Dean Albert J. McClean.
Medicine — Dean David Bates.
Pharmaceutical Sciences — Dean Bernard E. Riedel.
Science — Dean George Volkoff.
The 12 faculties are the major academic units of the
University. They are self-governing but many of their
decisions are subject to the approval of Senate, Faculties
set their courses of instruction, set and grade exams and
recommend to Senate the award of degrees. They have
the right to advise the president on academic and
disciplinary matters, but he is not subject to their control.
In most cases, faculties are divided into departments, each
teaching a separate academic discipline. Some faculties
have attached to them schools (which offer professional
training), institutes (which undertake research and offer
instruction at the post-graduate level) and centres (which
provide opportunities for multi-disciplinary research).
The Office of the Dean of Women provides information
and counselling services and annually sponsors a series of
lectures and other events on campus, sometimes in
association with other women's groups at UBC, The
co-ordinator of Health Sciences is responsible for the
integrated teaching program carried on in UBC's Health
Sciences Centre under, which students in medicine,
dentistry, pharmaceutical sciences, rehabilitation
medicine and other disciplines are trained in the
health-team concept of delivery of medical services.
Prof. Charles Bourne, of UBC's Faculty of Law, was
appointed advisor to the president in early June. In this
capacity he is responsible for the negotiation and
implementation of collective bargaining agreements
between the University and the Faculty Association,
which represents UBC's teaching and research staff. Over
the summer. Prof. Bourne has headed an administration
negotiation group which has met with a Faculty
Association negotiating group to discuss a framework
document setting out the rules and procedures for the
negotiation of a collective agreement between the
University and the association. (For details, see story on
Page Seven). Prof. Bourne reports to President Kenny
through Prof. Michael Shaw, vice-president of University
Dr. Douglas T. Kenny, former dean of the Faculty of Arts at UBC,
became the University's president, or chief executive officer, on
-July 1. Four vice presidents (see boxes below), assist the president
(n the day-to-day operation and long-range planning of University
The President also chairs meetings of the Committee of Deans,
which includes the'deans of faculties, the dean of Women, and the
Co-ordinator of Health Sciences. The president is a voting member
of the Board of Governors and the chairman of Senate. He is also .
$n ex officio member of all standing committees of Senate, except
the standing committee on appeals. He is a member of each of
UBC's 12 faculties and, in the absence of the chancellor, is
£hairman of Convocation and is empowered to confer degrees.
Under the new Universities Act the president holds the office of
The president's powers include recommending to the Board of
Governors the appointment, promotion and removal of members
of the teaching and administrative staffs and officers and
employees of the University, summoning meetings of a single
faculty or joint meetings of all or* any of the faculties, and
establishing such committees as ha may consider necessary or
advisable. y
The president has the power to suspend any member of the
teaching and administrative staffs and any officer or employee of
the University. He must report such action to the Board of
Governors and the suspended individual has the right of appeal to
the Board.
He  also  has  the  power to suspend  a student and to deal
summarily with any matter of student discipline. He must report
such action to a Senate standing committee of final appeal for
students, in matters of academic discipline, with a statement of .
his reasons.
The president prepares and submits to the Board an annual
budget in consultation with a standing committee of Senate and
also presents the budget estimates, and other submissions, to the
Universities Council, the new intermediary between the public
universities of B.C. and the provincial government.
The president is also required to "prepare and publish" an
annual report on the progress of the University and make any
necessary recommendations to the Board and Senate. He is also
required to report on any matter referred to him by the Board
and Senate.
Dr. Michael Shaw assumed his new post as vice-president
of University development on July 1. Prior to that he was
dean of the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences, which he
came to UBC to head in 1967 from the University of
In his vice-presidential role Prof. Shaw will have overall
responsibility for the planning, co-ordination and
development of the University's academic affairs. He is
the only one of UBCs four vice-presidents who sits as a
voting member of Senate. The new Universities Act
specifies that the academic vice-president, or equivalent,
shall be a Senator.

'HiNwaiariisgilCviJ^jd l:»nntliihi rtE8tM-i33Ei. Paradox
UBC Library
More means less.
That's the paradox that faces UBC's Library
system in providing services to the University community and the public in the 1975-76 academic
Here's how it works.
The total budget for UBC's Library system has
been increased, but the number of hours the system will be open will be reduced by approximately
8 per cent.
More money has been allocated within the Library budget for salaries, but fewer professional
librarians, support staff and student assistants will
be available to provide service.
UBC's Library system represents, in microcosm,
the dilemma faced by the University in trying to
keep pace with inflation. The provincial government grant to UBC for operating purposes in
1975-76 amounts to almost $92 million, but its
effectiveness has been greatly reduced by drastic
escalations in the costs of day-to-day operations.
The same thing is true for UBC in terms of capital
grants; almost all of the $10.3-million provincial
government grant for this year will be used to finance existing projects and virtually nothing is
available for new construction.
The UBC Library budget has been increased
this year to just over $7.0 million. As in the past,
the Library system's slice of UBC's operating budget will be in the neighborhood of 7 per cent.
Despite the dollar increase, the senior administrators in the Library knew they would be unable
to maintain services at 1974-75 levels. In order to
keep to a minimum the number of hours service
would have to be reduced, they decided to transfer
funds from other areas of the Library budget to
the student assistant budget.
The effect of the internal budget transfers by
the Library, plus an increase provided by the University administration for the student assistant
budget, will be to provide for about 119,000
working hours in 1975-76, a 15 per cent decrease
from last year.
In addition to the consequences outlined
below, all this means that there will be a 10 per
cent decline in the number of hours the Library
system will be open in 1975-76. Last year the
system was available for 1,000 hours a week. This
year it will be open about 900 hours a week.
It also means that about 150 fewer students
will be employed in the Library system this year
One area that will feel the pinch in 1975-76 is
the Library's collections budget, the funds used to
purchase new books and periodicals. This budget
has been reduced by $50,000 in the current year.
"We are already in deep trouble in terms of
funds for new periodicals and books," says Mr.
Inglis "Bill" Bell, UBC's associate librarian and the
man who serves as the system's financial officer.
Over the past five years, he said, inflation has
already reduced the value of the Library's collections budget by some $400,000, or 30 per cent.
The inflation rate for the purchase of new materials is in excess of 10 per cent each year. Last year
the Library added 96,259 volumes to its collection
compared to 98,202 in 1973-74.
Particularly critical has been the increase in the
cost of periodicals, the learned journals issued by
academic organizations. They are of value because
they contain the latest results of research in every
conceivable field.
In the past five years the increasing costs of
periodicals has meant that the share of the collections budget for their purchase has increased from
40 to 60 per cent.
In 1973 the alarming rate of appearance of
significant new journals caused the Library to initiate a "quid-pro-quo" policy under which each new
journal subscription has to be matched with a cancellation. Ultimately, says a recent edition of the
UBC Library News, "we must pray that the publishers, institutions, and associations which produce journals will begin to rationalize and moderate their production."
The Library has also decided to withdraw an
annual $10,000 contribution to the MEDLINE service which operates out of the Woodward Biomedical Library.
MEDLINE is a computerized medical data base
located in the United States. When a practising
doctor wants up-to-date information on how to
treat a disease he can reach the data base through a
terminal located at UBC. Within minutes
MEDLINE will produce a list of all the journal
articles on that topic. The journals themselves are
located in the Woodward Biomedical Library.
Withdrawal of the Library's contribution to
MEDLINE doesn't necessarily mean the service
will end. Efforts are currently being made to find
alternative sources of support for the service.
A service provided by UBC's Crane Library for
the blind will also be suspended. Handicapped students enrolled at other institutions in B.C. have
been able to request the Crane library to record
for them on tape books and other material needed
for their academic program. These students will no
longer enjoy this custom recording service but will
still have access to recordings already in the Crane
Library's collection.
Mr. Bell said there will also be a general thinning out of services throughout the entire Library
system. Existing vacant positions for two librarians
and five full-time support staff won't be filled and.
there will be fewer student assistants around to
provide service. "This means there won't be as
many people around to provide service to students
and faculty members," Mr. Bell said.
All this comes at a time when the demand for
service in the Library system is increasing, Mr. Bell
continued. "As new programs are initiated and old
ones are beefed up, there are greater demands
made on the Library system for new acquisitions
and assistance from trained librarians. The situation we now find ourselves in inevitably means
that the quality of service is going to decline."
The demand for materials and references by
professionals outside the University is also increasing, Mr. Bell said. Last year, queries for information and statistics increased by 7.1 per cent.
Here is a partial list of the hours of opening for
the Main Library and major branch libraries. Students and faculty members should check with
smaller branch libraries for hours of opening. The
schedule is effective on Sept. 8.
Monday-Thursday - 8:00 a.m. - 11:00 p.m.
Friday - 8:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.
Saturday — 9:00 a.m. — 5:00 p.m.

open until 8:30 a.m. and the Asian Studies, Map
and Special Collections Divisions will be closed on
Monday-Friday - 8:00 a.m. - 11:00 p.m.
Saturday - 9:00 a.m. - 11:00 p.m. (5:00 p.m.

Progress made
on agreement
Work has almost been completed on a framework
agreement setting out the rules and procedures for
the negotiation of collective agreements between the
University administration and the UBC Faculty
Since mid-June, teams of negotiators representing
the University administration and the Faculty
Association have been meeting two or three times a
week to discuss the framework agreement and
revisions to the Faculty Handbook, which sets out
University policies on appointment, promotion and
tenure, and other matters.
The University administration's negotiating
committee has been headed by Prof. Charles Bourne,
of UBC's Faculty of Law, whose appointment as
advisor to President Douglas Kenny was approved by
the Board of Governors early in June.
Prof. Bourne is responsible for the negotiation and
implementation of collective agreements between the
administration and the Faculty Association.
Other members of the University's negotiating
committee are Prof. Michael Shaw, vice-president of
University Development, and Prof. Ronald Shearer,
head of UBC's Department of Economics.
The three-member negotiating team representing
the UBC Faculty Association is headed by Mr.
Donald McRae, associate professor of Law and the
current president of the UBC Faculty Association.
The other members of the association's negotiating
team are Prof. D.L. Williams, assistant dean of the
Faculty of Graduate Studies and a member of the
Physics department; and Prof. Joseph C. Smith, of
the Faculty of Law.
Both Prof. Bourne and Mr. McRae said the
negotiating teams had made good progress over the
summer in discussing the framework agreement on
rules and procedures for collective bargaining.
Mr. McRae said that when a framework document
acceptable to the Faculty Association executive is
complete it will be circulated to the association's
membership. This will be followed by association
meetings for discussion of the document and possibly
a mail ballot on whether it is acceptable.
Prof. Bourne said he hoped the framework
agreement would be completed in time for
submission to the October meeting of the Board of
The negotiating teams have also been discussing
sections of the Faculty Handbook dealing with
appointments, promotion and tenure.
Some parts of the handbook dealing with these
subjects have been revised. Prof. Bourne said, and a
section is being drafted dealing with procedures on
Approval of the framework agreement will allow
the administration and the association to enter into
negotiations outside the Labor Code of B.C. leading
to the conclusion of a collective agreement.
In April, the association voted on three alternative
forms of collective bargaining with the
administration. The alternatives were:
A: Certification under the Labor Code of B.C.
B: A special plan for negotiation outside the
Labor Code; and
C:  The status quo as before Feb. 14, 1974.
The ballot was in the form of three paired choices
for the pairs AB, BC and AC. Alternative B was
approved because it obtained a simple majority in
both its pairings with the other two. Here is the result
of the voting on each of the pairings:
Ballot A.
Certification under the Labor Code of B.C. — 455.
Special plan for negotiation outside the Labor
Code - 493.
Ballot B.
Special plan — 538.
Status quo before Feb. 14, 1974 - 160.
Ballot C.
Certification under the Labor Code — 506.
Status quo - 342.
_ Ir*     r\     m n^ r- l-m POOL
Continued from Page One
Prof. Erich Vogt, UBC's Vice-President of Student
and Faculty Affairs, met with government off icials in
Victoria Thursday and reconfirmed tentative approval
of the grant.
The Aquatic Centre is to be built on a site between
the existing open Empire Pool and the Student Union
Building. The site, now occupied by a grassy knoll
and a grove of stately poplar trees, is in the area
specified by the students in a referendum in which,
they agreed to help finance the pool through a
$5-a-year levy on each student.    ,
Nineteen of the 48 poplar trees will have to be
removed to make space for the pool. An earlier start
on removal of the trees on Aug. 21 was halted on
President Kenny's orders because the Board had not
yet formally approved the project. Four of the trees
had been cut down before the work could be
stopped. Recognizing that the trees must go to enable
the pool to be built on the approved site. Students'
Council at its meeting Wednesday recommended that
site-clearing begin again.
A group of volunteers is being organized by AMS
President Jake van der Kamp and Mr. Alfred Adams,
executive secretary of the UBC Resources Council, to
collect contributions for a fund to buy and plant 38
fast-growing poplars to create a new grove in another
part of the campus. Some donations to this fund have
already been received *
The present estimated cost of the completed pool,
$4.7 million, is a substantial reduction from earlier
In July, the Planning Coordinating Committee for
the Aquatic Centre asked the Board to call tenders on
a.project which was ultimately to have cost $5.2
million. The Board declined because of its
uncertainties about funding.
Between the Jtriy •and September meetings of the
Board, the Planning Co-ordinating Committee pared
$570,000 from its estimates by eliminating or
postponing certain non-essential features.
These included: two saunas, two steam rooms and
a physical fitness area, plus associated mechanical and
electrical systems. Areas to be left unfinished include
a viewing lounge, a single classroom and a whirlpool
on the pool deck. Air conditioning has also been
eliminated in all areas outside the pool proper.
The pool has been designed by the firm of
Carlberg Jackson Partners so that it can be used for a
variety of purposes simultaneously, which will permit
flexibility in scheduling.
The pool can be divided into three separate areas
to allow for academic, competitive or recreational
use. The entire pool could also be used for any one of
these purposes.
It's envisioned that the pool will be used for
academic purposes by faculty members and students
in the Faculty of Education, the Schools of Physical
Education and Recreation and Rehabilitation
Medicine and by Faculty of Science students who are
interested in learning scuba-diving techniques for
training and research in such fields as marine biology
and oceanography.
It will also be available to all students, faculty and
staff for recreational swimming, and for intra- and
extra-mural competitions.
The pool would also^bean important community
resource. It will be available to clubs for competitive
and casual swimming, to scuba-diving clubs for
training programs, and for projects such as the Red
Cross water safety program.
The pool will also be a factor in attracting
conferences to the UBC campus because of its
location near the Walter Gage Residences, used to
house conference delegates when the University is not
in session, and the Student Union Building, where
conference delegates hold meetings.
The building will contain common dressing room
and administrative facilities for the new pool and
adjacent Empire Pool.

decide to return to university, partly to get a
competitive edge in the job market and partly
because there are simply fewer jobs available.
UBC's final enrolment figure for the current
Winter Session won't be known until Dec. 1, the date
on which universities count noses for statistical
A forecast drawn up by UBC's Office of Academic
Planning indicates that by Dec. 1 UBC will have
approximately 23,200 students registered for
daytime, on-campus courses.
Add to this approximately 300 medical residents
— medical school graduates completing their specialty
training in Vancouver hospitals under UBC auspices —
who were last year registered as students for the first
time, produces an estimated daytime enrolment of
23,500, an increase of 1,465 students, or 6.6 per
cent, over last year.
Also not included in the above figures are
extra-sessional students who are registered at UBC for
night academic programs offered by various UBC
faculties through the Centre for Continuing
Last year, UBC registered 1,150 extra-sessional
students. Academic Planning office figures predict
UBC will have approximately 1,300 extra-sessional
students registered on Dec. 1 this year.
Enrolment predictions are prepared by Prof.
Robert M. Clark, director of the Office of Academic
Planning, and the office's associate director. Dr.
William Tetlow.
Dr. Tetlow said there are indications that a larger
number of students will come on to UBC from grade
12 than in the past. And he also expects there will be
an increase in the number of students described as
re-entrants — students who were enrolled at UBC at
some time in the past, but were not registered Jast
It seems unlikely that any of UBC's 12 faculties
will experience spectacular enrolment increases.
Increases ranging between approximately 175 and
400 students are predicted for the Faculties of Arts,
Applied Science, Commerce and Business
Administration, and Education. Other faculties will
experience increases below the 100 mark.
Almost all of UBC's predicted enrolment increase
will come at the undergraduate level-. Enrolment in
UBC's Faculty of Graduate Studies in recent years
has remained steady at around the 2,650-level. This
year, a slight increase to just over 2,700 students is
Mid-term   break
The mid-term break enjoyed by UBC students in
February of the second term of the Winter Session
will be reduced to a single day in 1976 and combined
with the new Heritage Day holiday.
The day designated by UBC's Senate as the
mid-term break is Tuesday, Feb. 17. The day prior to
the break is the Monday Heritage Day holiday.
Originally, the mid-term break was scheduled for
Thursday and Friday, Feb. 19 and 20. Mr. J.E.A.
Parnall referred the question of the date of the
mid-term break to Senate at its May, 1975, meeting
following approval of the Feb. 16 Heritage Day
The intrpduction of the new holiday would have
meant that UBC classes and laboratories would have
been cancelled for three days in that week.
Mr. Parnall, in referring the question to Senate,
suggested that the mid-term break should straddle
Heritage Day and take place on Friday, Feb. 13 and
Tuesday, Feb. 17.
A number of Senators objected and it was pointed
out that the registrar's suggestion would have meant
that two weeks of laboratory teaching in thesciences
would be disrupted.
The matter was resolved when Senate approved a
motion by Prof. John Dennison, of the Faculty of
Education, that the mid-term break be reduced to
one day and combined with Heritage Day for a total
of two days.
Increase  limited
The provincial government has rejected an
application by the University of B.C. for exemption
from the rental-increase ceiling of 10.6 per cent
imposed this year under the Landlord and Tenant
As a result, increases in room rates in
single-student residences at UBC will be limited to
10.6 per cent during   the 1975-76 Winter Session.
Pierre Berton
opens Institute
Canadian author and journalist Pierre Berton will
be the leadoff speaker in the 1975-76 series of free

Pollution  lecture
An international authority on pollution control
engineering will give a public lecture on Thursday,
Sept. 11, at 12:30 p.m. in Lecture Hall No. 2 of the
Woodward Instructional Resources Centre.
Dr. W.W. Eckenfelder, who is at UBC as a Cecil H.
and Ida Green Visiting Professor, will speak on "A
Perspective on Pollution."
Dr. Eckenfelder is a distinguished professor of
environmental science and engineering at Vanderbilt
University. During the past 15 years he has written or
co-authored five books, three of which have become
standard texts in most universities with a program in
pollution control engineering.
He was a co-editor of a series of publications
entitled "Advances in Water Quality Improvement,"
and is currently a co-author of a series entitled
"Progress in Water Technology."

Housing    sought
Students from all over the world will be visiting
Vancouver to study English this fall and winter at the
Centre for Continuing Education's Language
Institute. Many would like to stay with
English-speaking families.
They would like to experience Canadian family
life, to meet other Canadians, to eat Canadian food,
and to get to know Vancouver.
The students will be attending classes for six hours
each day, Monday through Friday. Frequent visits to
the theatre in the evenings and occasional excursions
