 Restraint program worries new president
George Pedersen, who moved into the
president's chair at UBC this week, says
university employees shouldn't have to bear
the major burden of the provincial
government's restraint program.
In an interview with UBC Reports, Dr.
Pedersen spoke at length about the
financial plight of B.C.'s three universities,
which he said have been undergoing
restraint for more than 10 years.
He said it was a matter of "very real
concern" to him that increased allocations
Dr. George Pedersen's first full working day in the UBC President's Office on Monday (July 4) was a busy one and included a television
interview with British Columbia Television reporter Neale Adams. Dr. Pedersen officially became UBC's eighth president on July 1,
succeeding Dr. Douglas T. Kenny, who stepped down after an eight-year presidential term. A UBC graduate, Dr. Pedersen has had
experience as a teacher, researcher and administrator at all levels of the B.C. school system and at all three public universities in B.C. He
was president of Simon Fraser University from 1979 until June 30 of this year.
Report urges Indian involvement
Successful Indian education programs in
B.C. involve Indians in their planning and
have broad support of school authorities.
Programs that fail do not.
Those are the opinions of Dr. Arthur J.
More, senior researcher of a comprehensive
UBC survey of every Indian education
program and project in the province.
The report, a revision of an earlier
survey completed in 1981, comes out at a
time when controversy surrounds the
effectiveness of Indian education offered
through the provincial Ministry of
The report deals with about 300
programs operated by federal government,
Indian band and private schools as well as
those of the provincial government.
Approximately 34,000 Indian children
attend schools in B.C., about 31,000 of
them in provincial government schools.
Aim of the report is to provide methods
of improving Indian education in the
province, which has improved dramatically
in the past six years, Dr. More said.
"Of the two chief ingredients to success,"
he said, "the most important is Indian
involvement in the planning of the
programs. If they don't have input into a
program, it will be less meaningful for
"But it is also important for the program
to receive the support of educational
authorities. If there is not broad
administrative support, it's compromised
before it starts."
Dr. More, associate professor in UBC's
Faculty of Education, said that too many
programs in the province:
• are token efforts, attempting to
appear as if something is being done;
• try to fit the child into the system
instead of altering the system to meet the
special requirements of the child;
• are seen as short term efforts rather
than a necessary component of the schools'
total programs.
He also said that a serious problem in
both provincial and federal government
schools is lack of accountability. There is
often no accountability for the educational
results of programs, he said, and money
granted for programs is not always spent
on them.
Summer enrolment up
Enrolment for UBC's 1983 Summer
Session is up slightly from last year, but
according to acting director of Extra-
Sessional Studies, Dr. Ken Slade, there was
a noticeable decline in the number of
school teachers enrolled this summer.
"Traditionally the Summer Session has
been comprised mainly of teachers,
particularly those from outside the Lower
Mainland, who take advantage of the
summer break to upgrade their education.
But this year, enrolment in education
courses is down quite a bit. A large
percentage of the 1983 summer population
are students who were unable to find work
and are accelerating their studies."
Approximately 4,200 students are
enrolled in Summer Session, which began
Monday (July 4) and continues until Aug.
13. Attendance in 1982 was just over
4,000. 362 courses are being offered, seven
at off-campus locations.
by the federal government to the provinces
for universities may not be passed on in
British Columbia.
Ottawa announced in March that the
grant to B.C. will rise 8 per cent for
"Given that the federal government is
supporting 75 per cent of the costs of
universities, the net effect of that is a
6-per-cent rise," said Dr. Pedersen. "All
the messages we're getting suggest we won't
see any of that."
The new UBC president said that while
everybody in the public sector should
expect to be affected by restraint, the
universities had suffered more than most.
"If you look at the overall allocation to
the universities, as opposed to the public
schools, as opposed to the colleges and
institutes, as opposed to the hospitals, the
universities have fared much less well over
the past 10 years.
"I don't see or understand the rationale
that says that the major burden of the
current restraint program has to be borne
on the backs of people who are employees
of universities. It strikes me that the
government was able to make money
available for its own employees last year,
and I don't hear anything to suggest that
they are going to hold all of them to zero
increases this year."
If there is no increase in the provincial
grant, Dr. Pedersen said, then his
preference would be to keep everybody
employed rather than to grant increases to
some employees at the expense of jobs.
"The University obviously has only those
two options unless it can dream up some
other source of revenue.'
He said increased tuition fees could be a
source of revenue. "But the students
obviously are as hard-pressed as anybody
else these days in terms of being able to
provide the support they need in order to
get their education."
President Pedersen said not knowing the
size of the provincial grant until well into
the fiscal year makes it almost impossible
to do any thoughtful planning.
"I don't know how they think we are
supposed to deal with that problem, but by
the time we hear this year's allocation we
are going to be well beyond the first
quarter of the fiscal year. It simply makes
no sense to try and deal with government
in that manner. From my point of view,
you simply have to have much better lead
time than we've been getting."
Dr. Pedersen, 51, became UBC's eighth
president on July 1, succeeding Douglas T.
Kenny, who served eight years as the
University's chief executive officer.
Dr. Pedersen, a UBC graduate, was at
the University of Victoria from 1972 to
1979, as dean of Education and then vice-
president, and was president of Simon
Fraser University before accepting the top
position at UBC. UBC Reports July 6, 1983

Challenge trophy up for grabs
If you'd like to have your department's
name engraved on a plaque displayed in
the Faculty Club, just organize a six-person
darts team and defeat either Physiology or
Chemistry — depending upon which of
them emerges as the first rightful current
holder of the trophy.
Physiology's John Brown, who convinced
Fisher Scientific Ltd. to donate the trophy
for the annual Faculty Club Darts
Tournament, feigned surprise when the
plaque arrived with 'Physiology May 1983'
already inscribed on one of the perpetual
Chemistry, which claims to have
defeated Physiology twice this spring ("ah,
yes, but that was before there was a
trophy, or rules," says Prof. Brown)
immediately issued a formal challenge,
accepted by Physiology.
Once this has been resolved, the trophy
will be up for grabs on a challenge basis.
The competition involves singles, doubles
and team play, and all six members of a
departmental team must be Faculty Club

Award at a dinner June 17 at Government
House in Ottawa. The award was
presented by Governor General Edward
Mr. Van Schyndel is working towards his
doctoral degree in solid state physics under
the supervision of Prof. Rudy Haering,
former head of UBC's physics department.
The award is made annually to a
promising young scientist not older than
27, the age of Guglielmo Marconi when he
sent the world's first wireless signal from
England to Signal Hill in St. John's,
Newfoundland in 1901. Winners also
receive $5,000 in U.S. funds.
Mr. Van Schyndel, 27, won the award
on the basis of brilliant innovations in the
area of "talking" books for the blind-the
Van Schyndel Voice Indexer -and for his
innovative work in battery research and
speech compression for hearing-impaired
His voice indexer is now commercially
produced by a Vancouver firm and has
received world-wide acceptance in a
number of libraries, including the Library
of Congress.
The battery research is part of a larger
effort under Prof. Haering to develop a
light-weight battery using the metal
molybdenum, abundant in B.C.
Van Schyndel's speech compression
research with other colleagues in physics
has resulted in a new hearing aid for the
profoundly deaf. Instead of merely
amplifying sound as conventional aids do,

frequencies which the hearing disabled can

Orientation programs for prospective
students will be held again this summer at
UBC. More than 1,700 students
participated last summer.
Throughout July, daytime programs will
be available from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The program will involve familiarization
with the campus, an opportunity to meet
faculty advisors and workshops on a variety
of topics of value to new students in their
adjustment to university life.
Overnight weekend programs of
particular interest to those wishing an
introduction to residence life or to those
unable to attend the daytime programs are
also available during July and August.
Parents of new students are invited to
find out more about UBC by attending an
information meeting on July 23. There will
be tours of the campus, meetings with
faculty advisors and an opportunity to
meet with University Student Services
people from such areas as Financial Aid,
Registration and Counselling.

Some of the upper limbs are already
dead, presenting a safety hazard to
pedestrians. Later this summer the trees
will be topped in the hope that radical
pruning will stimulate new growth and
extend their lifespan a few more years.
Dr. John Worrall, associate professor in
UBC's Faculty of Forestry, says the
affliction cursing two oaks at the north end
of the Sedgewick Library and one east of
the Angus Building is probably disturbance
of the roots.
When Sedgewick was built 12 years ago,
massive plant pots were built around the
trees to protect the roots and incorporate
the trees into the architecture of the library
The construction work is now probably
affecting the trees, causing some upper
limbs to die. The concrete sidewalk close to
the tree near Angus is probably the source
of root disturbance there, Dr. Worrall said.
The dead oak branches will be cut off to
see if the trees revive next year. Dr.
Worrall is not optimistic about the results
and says the trees will probably have to be
replaced sooner than later.
aided library
Stanley Arkley, a UBC graduate and
benefactor of the University's Library and
School of Librarianship, died in Seattle on
June 23.
Mr. Arkley contributed more than
$25,000 worth of children's literature and
American history books to the Library and
donated $10,000 to enhance its collection
of children's literature.
In 1976 UBC conferred on him an
honorary Doctor of Laws degree.
Mr. Arkley was one of the founders and
president of the Friends of the University of
British Columbia, established in 1957 to
represent American alumni. Before his
retirement in 1969 he worked for
Doubleday Publishers.
In 1972 the UBC Alumni Association
established the Stanley T. Arkley
Scholarship in Librarianship in his honor. UBC Reports July 6, 1983
