UBC planning student
gets international award
The American Planning Association has
given its top student project award for
1982 to a student in UBC's School of
Community and Regional Planning.
Laura Lee Richard received the APA
Student Project Award at the association's
annual meeting in Dallas, Texas, for a
report entitled "Implications of the
Transfer of Development Potential in the
City of Vancouver."
The report recommends that Vancouver
apply the TDP concept — the belief that
density allocated to one site should be
relocated to another site to achieve
planning objectives — to foster
achievement of three objectives:
Preservation of heritage buildings and
compensation for designation; creation of
open space in densely built-up areas; and
construction of residential units in the
commercial core.
Ms. Richard has been a UBC student
since 1980 and holds a B.A. degree from
the University of Saskatchewan.
A second student in community and
regional planning, Sandy James, has been
named the 1982 winner of the $7,500 Peter
N. Cotton Scholarship for the study of
architectural conservation.
The award is made annually by the B.C.
Heritage Trust, a provincial government
Ms. James, who enrolled at UBC in 1981
after receiving her B.A. degree in urban
geography from Carleton University in
Ottawa, has been involved in a number of
architectural conservation projects in
Edmonton and was formerly a consultant
to the Alberta government on heritage
Her UBC thesis project is the
development of a plan for Parkside 19, the
only block of single-family dwellings
remaining in Vancouver's West End.
A second $7,500 scholarship
administered by the B.C. Heritage Trust
has also gone to a UBC student.
Shelley Sweeney, a student enrolled in
the Master of Archival Studies program in
the School of Librarianship, has been
named the winner of the Willard E.
Ireland Scholarship for 1982.
Rollback of grant,
tougher wage rules
coming from gov't
UBC's 1982-83 operating grant from the
provincial government will be rolled back,
wage and salary increases this year will be
limited to about 6 per cent, and increases
next year may be even lower.
That was the message delivered yesterday
(Tuesday) by Universities Minister Pat
McGeer and Deputy Minister Bob Stewart
to administration, union and faculty
representatives from UBC and Simon
Fraser University. Dr. McGeer spoke to
University of Victoria representatives later
in the day.
Here are the main points to emerge from
the meeting held in the board room of the
Universities Council of B.C.:
• The provincial government will
introduce new wage guidelines within a
week, probably by Friday of this week •
• The guidelines will be considerably
lower than Premier Bennett's February
guidelines that ranged from 8 to 14 per
cent. The exact figure isn't known yet, but
the best bet would appear to be 6 per cent
with some provision for flexibility.
• Since the operating grants to the three
universities for 1982-83 were up a total of
12 per cent (although the UBC increase
was 10.8) the difference between the grant
increases and the wage increases may be
retained by the government — a rollback
that at this point cannot be calculated
either as a percentage or in dollars.
• The provincial Treasury Board target
for 1983-84 is a total universities budget
exactly the same in dollars as the total for
1982-83, which could mean wage and
salary increases next year even lower than
those proposed for this year.
• Unions that are on a two-year
contract as of April 1, 1981, are not likely
to undergo a wage rollback for the current
year, but the compensation stabilization
Conference to focus on future
The future of Canadian society and
culture will be the topic of the seventh
annual conference of the Canadian
Association for Future Studies at the
University of B.C. Aug. 14 to 16.
Conference organizers say that
significant social and cultural changes are
now occurring in Canada, including shifts
in economic and political power, diversity
of domestic relationships, and more
expensive and less accessible energy. The
changes are affecting the way we behave
and what we believe. Aim of the
conference is to assess options Canadians
have in dealing with these changes.
Several general areas will be explored:
Values and beliefs; production and
consumption of goods and services;
telecommunications and technology; the
arts; politics and governance; science and
education; and multiculturalism.
Among the speakers are B.C. Supreme
Court Justice Thomas Berger; Nova Corp.
president Bob Blair; John Crispo, professor
of economics and industrial relations at the
University of Toronto; John Fryer, vice-
president of the Canadian Labor Congress;
Louis Applebaum, chairman of the Federal
Cultural Policy Review Committee; and
Mary LeMessurier, Alberta Minister of
Honorary conference chairman is UBC
president Dr. Douglas T. Kenny.
Board changes day
The UBC Board of Governors has
changed its meeting day to Thursday from
Tuesday for 1983, with only one exception.
The May meeting, normally held out of
town, will be on Monday, May 2, 1983.
Other dates, all Thursday at 2 p.m. in
the Board and Senate room, are Feb. 3,
March 3, April 7, June 2, July 7, Oct. 6,
Nov. 3 and Dec. 1. The Board does not
meet in January, August or September.
program will apply to them for two years
as of April 1, 1983.
Dr. McGeer said the total deficit this
year for Canada, including all provincial
governments and the federal government,
is more than $40 billion — "a record for a
country of our population in the free
Dr. McGeer said he hoped and expected
that whatever money was available would
be shared by those working at the
universities. There are no jobs for those
laid off, he said. "It would be casting them
to the wolves."
Although he painted a bleak economic
picture, Dr. McGeer said the province
must carry on. "We're not going to shut
the door of the province and turn the
lights out," he said. "But we have to slow
New head
Prof. David Robitaille, a UBC faculty
member since 1971, has been named head
of the Faculty of Education's mathematics
and science education department. He is
the second permanent head to be
appointed since the faculty was
departmentalized a year ago.
Prof. Robitaille earned a Bachelor of
Arts degree from the University of
Montreal in 1960, and did graduate studies
at the university the following year. He
received an M.A. in mathematics from the
University of Detroit in 1965 and in 1969
was awarded a Ph.D. in mathematics
education from Ohio State University.
Before coming to UBC, Prof. Robitaille
was involved in administrative work and
teaching at both the elementary and high
school levels in the Montreal school system.
One of his areas of research interest is
the large-scale assessment of achievement
in mathematics, and he was the prime
mover in province-wide assessments in 1977
and 1981 of the mathematical ability of all
students in grades 4, 8 and 12.
Prof. Robitaille is currently involved in
the Second International Study of
Mathematics sponsored by the
International Association for the
Evaluation of Educational Achievement.
He is co-authoring a volume entitled The
International Mathematics Classroom,
which compares the way in which
mathematics is taught in different
Prof. Robitaille is the author of
numerous professional and research articles
and the co-author of nine textbooks used
in public school mathematics teaching.
Appointed earlier this year as head of
the Department of Educational Psychology
and Special Education was Prof. Bryan
Clarke. UBC Reports July 21, 1982
Acadia housing plan
endorsed by Board
The Board of Governors has given
approval in principal to a proposal for the
development of more housing in and
around Acadia Park.
A report prepared by Waisman Dewar
Grout, Architects and Planners, was
presented to the Board at its meeting on
July 6. The report has also been approved
for circulation to various groups on campus
who have a particular interest in housing.
Architect Allan Waisman, who was
asked to prepare detailed urban design and
architectural guidelines, was selected by
the Ad Hoc Housing Committee of the
Board following interviews with other local
architectural firms experienced in the
housing and community development
fields. Mr. Waisman has been closely
associated with the development of the
Whistler townsite and more recently the
Tumbler Ridge new town in north-eastern
The study follows the work, last year, of
the President's Ad Hoc Housing Comittee,
a report prepared by UBC's Department of
Facilities Planning, a land appraisal by
Cumberland Realty and an economic study
by Urbanics Consultants Limited.
The proposed development would be
entirely on University land, generally
bounded by 16th Avenue, Wesbrook Mall,
Toronto Road and Acadia Road. The
present land uses fronting Wesbrook Mall
would not be changed. The use of this
land for housing has been approved by the
President's Advisory Land Use Committee.
The Waisman study examines the ways
additional housing can be built in this area
in a series of phases to satisfy a variety of
University housing needs over many years.
The layout and phasing should ensure the
minimum of disruption to existing
residents. Each phase is designed to be
visually complete at the end of
construction. The scheme recommends the
development of single family and cluster
housing in the 16th Avenue portion of the
This housing, termed "University Market
Housing", would be marketed on a long-
term pre-paid lease basis to the University
community. Funds acquired through this
development would be used to assist in the
creation of affordable rental housing on
the remainder of the site. The rental units
would be mainly townhouses and
apartments, and anticipated residents
include students, graduate students and
junior faculty. The architectural concept
closely follows the recommendations of the
President's Ad Hoc Housing Committee,
which particularly sought the development
of family housing.
The "University Market Housing" would
be constructed in a series of enclaves with
lease arrangements possibly similar to those
negotiated by the City of Vancouver in
Champlain Heights. The reports preceding
this study have recommended that the term
of the lease be 99 years and provision made
for the University to purchase the built
improvements at the end of the lease.
Similar    -rangements exist in the
Musqueam Park and Salish Park single
family subdivisions on the Musqueam
Indian Reserve, on the south-east boundary
of the University lands.
Since this portion of the proposal is
believed to be sensitive to market demands,
the architects have outlined several layouts
and densities ranging from five to 12 units
per acre for single family housing to 15 to
20 units per acre for multi-family layouts.
There is provision for two high-rise
apartments, sited with regard for the
privacy of low-rise developments and
existing housing, should there be a market
demand at a later date. The architects
believe the single family cluster housing
makes efficient use of the land without any
loss of privacy. They also expect lower
capital and energy costs. It is believed such
a layout releases more land for open space
within a given overall density limit.
The details of the rental housing have
been covered extensively by Mr. Waisman.
The scheme shows infill townhouses
between the existing low-rise units in
Acadia Park as a second step following the
construction of an enclave of "University
Market Housing".
No density targets have been assessed for
this infill housing since the architects
believe that whatever is built should
reinforce the urban character of the area.
The development of townhouses and
apartments, in the area of the huts usually
known as Acadia Camp, would follow.
Initial densities would be similar to those in
False Creek, 30 to 35 units per acre, with
an allowance for higher densities should
the demand rise. About 76 per cent of the
units would be two-bedroom townhouses or
low-rise apartments.
The design guidelines have been clearly
influenced by the need to "provide a
physical framework for the nurturing of a
satisfactory community life." An "early
reorganization of the circulation system" is
Preliminary investigations, at the request
of the President's Traffic and Parking
Committee, show peak volumes of traffic
are easily handled by the proposed road
system around the site. A link to 16th
Avenue was considered but found to be
unnecessary. There will be direct access to
existing and new parking areas from the
perimeter of the development. The new
parking areas would be under a pedestrian
street system. The scheme allows for a
maximum amount of parking based on a
ratio of 1.25 parking spaces per housing
The elimination of traffic through the
site and the unique design guideline for
partially below grade parking, allows the
development of pedestrian pathways and
streets linking the housing to the campus,
the commercial areas in the village, and
the University Endowment Lands.
The street system is the urban device
which is used by the architects to provide
an integrated development. The streets
provide access to front doors and
pedestrian activity would be encouraged by
the location of communal activity centres
at intersections and gateways. The report
suggests a new day-care facility be located
on Fairview Crescent near to Western
Parkway. The guidelines also stress the
need for a system of gateways or visual
reference points leading into the street
The architectural guidelines for the
rental units show methods of defining
territory and privacy, but emphasize the
details related to family use. By the
limiting of building height for the family
rental units to essentially three floors above
grade, it is believed parents will be able to
retain visual and verbal contact with small
children playing in the proposed informal
play areas.
The report also includes guidelines
regarding the hierarchy of open space,
landscaping and construction materials.
The end of the study illustrates, in some
detail, various test layouts although the
architects stress the fact they are only test
layouts. The study has been well received
by the University Advisory Design Panel
and the Property Committee of the Board
of Governors.
In a covering letter to the chairman of
the Board of Governor's property
committee, the architects note that a large
body of technical information will have to
be developed before any real forward
commitments can be made.
"The key to going or not going relates
directly to interest rates," said Mr.
Waisman. "And as such, the present
approach appears to have all of the
necessary background work complete so
that one can go into actual physical
construction during one of the 'windows'
that become available from time to time in
our economy."

Garland, director of the faculty's Interior
Program, were consultants to the
University of Sokoto in Nigeria on the
university's programs and a future link
between the university and UBC.
Faculty asked
to suggest
student jobs
The Office of Awards and Financial Aid
is seeking suggestions for projects that will
provide part-time student jobs under the
Work Study Program during the winter
With the allocation on July 7 of an
additional $250,000 to the program, the
awards office hopes that many more
students will be employed under the
program in 1982-83. Only 150 were
employed last year.
Government funding for the program
totals $162,000, enabling the University to
place students in on-campus jobs to a
maximum of 10 hours a week, at a
maximum wage of $6.75 an hour.
In the past, participating University
departments have had to make up the
difference between $6.75 and the
prevailing UBC wage rates from their own
budgets. The $250,000 allocated by the
University is available to remove this
financial burden from departments, and
should also increase the number and
variety of job projects. It will also be
possible to pay higher wages to students
performing more technical and complex
Sheila Summers, an administrator of the
program, said a mailing to all full-time
faculty will go out without delay, providing
details of the expanded program and
calling for suggestions for projects. During
the summer, the main thrust will be to set
up eligible projects across the campus. In
most cases, Work Study projects cover
fields where work would not otherwise be
done. Deadline for approval of projects is
Aug. 2.
Ms. Summers stressed that eligibility
criteria for Work Study dovetail with the
need assessment system used for regular
student assistance, although the 'means
test' is rather less stringent than for loans
or grants. Typical grounds for placement,
she said, could be such factors as lack of
summer savings expected under B.C
Student Assistance criteria, lack of
expected parental contribution, or assessed
need above the maximum government loan
and grant. UBC Reports July 21, 1982
Cancer claims Charles Culling
Charles Culling, a professor of pathology
at UBC and one of Canada's leading
cancer researchers, died last Tuesday (July
13) at the age of 64.
Prof. Culling, who had suffered from
lung cancer for more than two years,
joined the UBC faculty in 1957 after
training in England as a technician and
methodologist at the Westminster Medical
School and Sir John Cass College.
Although he never obtained a medical
degree or an academic doctorate, Charles
Culling became a much respected medical
researcher and was one of the few with
only technical training ever to become a
full professor at UBC.
"In many ways, I think it was his
technical genius that was his strength,"
said Dr. David Hardwick, head of the UBC
Department of Pathology. "Charles Culling
brought a practical approach to medical
research, and he achieved a number of
significant results."
After early work on the cancer-causing
agent in cigarettes, and on the testing of
drugs that inhibit the body's rejection of
foreign tissue, Prof. Culling's research in
recent years had involved cancer of the
large intestine.
In 1975, Prof. Culling developed a test
to determine whether cancer found in some
part of the body had originated in the
large intestine, as is not uncommonly the

The nursing outreach program will help
active registered nurses who live in various
regions of the province to take portions of
the baccalaureate program in nursing
(Bachelor of Science in Nursing) in their
own communities.
At present, the only baccalaureate
programs in nursing in B.C. require
residence in Vancouver (for the UBC
program) or in Victoria (for the University
of Victoria program). These programs were
designed primarily for nurses who can live
in either area and devote themselves full-
time to their studies.
The School of Nursing, working in
collaboration with the University of
Victoria, would like to arrange it so that
the universities would reach out to the rest
of the province and offer at least some of
the courses offered at UBC and UVic
through special outreach arrangements.
Mrs. Simpson brings an impressive
background to her new position. She holds
a bachelor's degree in nursing and a
master's degree in education from the
University of Ottawa, and has had a wide
variety of nursing experience in the areas
of intensive care, surgical, neurological,
medical and metabolic nursing. She was
also involved in the organization and
operation of a 138-bed psychiatric hospital

WCB sets up
award fund
The Worker's Compensation Board of
B.C. has established a $50,000 scholarship
fund in UBC's School of Audiology and
Speech Sciences.
Interest from the fund will provide
scholarships for exceptional students
applying to the school's two-year graduate
program. At present there are 32 students
registered in the school.
Students graduate with a Master of
Science degree which allows them to work
as either audiologists or speech language
pathologists. One of the first graduates of
the school was instrumental in starting the
hearing branch of the WCB, which now
employs a number of audiologists.
Dr. John H.V. Gilbert, acting director of
the school, says there is a large demand for
graduates but unfortunately the school
must turn away three applicants out of
four because of space limitations.
More recently, he had been working on
a tissue staining process through which
cancer of the large intestine could be
detected early.
Dr. William "Lawrie" Dunn, former
head of the UBC pathology department,
made the following comments about Prof.
Culling at a memorial service held last
week on campus:
"Charles Culling passed from among us
suddenly, and in a way which reflected the
fullness and energy of his existence in this
transitory life, a suddenness that followed
immediately upon a morning devoted to
his work. He was a man of many facets to
all those who knew him.
"Charles was invited to our campus in
1957 by the newly-appointed professor of
pathology, Dr. Harold E. Taylor, and a
firm bond and collaborative energy was
formulated, which inaugurated a combined
teaching and research partnership that
endured for many years to come.
"His skills and his breadth of knowledge
were imparted with an equal facility as
teacher, counsellor, and as author, not
only of countless research papers, in a
diversity of fields, but of a magnificent text
on histopathological and histochemical
techniques of which he was an
internationally recognized master. During
Prof. Culling's tenure here at UBC from
1957 to 1982, he left the stamp of his
intellect, ideals and personality on his
students and associates.
"During these same years, Prof. Culling
achieved recognition and held important
offices in a number of scientific and lay
organizations, many of whom will
undoubtedly join with us in mourning his
passing. Not the least of these must surely
be the Young Men's Christian Association,
to which Charles was deeply devoted and
for which he gave many, many hours and
much energy.
"Charles Culling was every inch a
scholar, a humanist, a man of at times
lyric wit, but such intensity of purpose,
devoted to his ideals, a man whose memory
shall live long and unclouded among
those given the privilege of calling him
colleague and friend."
Prof. Culling was immediate past-
president of the UBC Faculty Association.
He is survived by his wife, Lois, and two
sons by a previous marriage.
