 Undergraduate fees increase by 10 per cent
UBC's Board of Governors has
approved recommendations that will
see undergraduate tuition fees increase
by an average of about 10 per cent in
the fiscal year beginning April 1.
The per-unit fee of $77 initiated last
year will increase 10.39 per cent for
most programs in the Faculty of Arts
and for all programs in the Faculties of
Commerce and Business Administration,
Education and Science.
As a result, a student who paid
$1,155 for a normal, 15-unit program in
1984-85 will pay $1,275 in 1985-86.
Fees for degree programs in agricultural
sciences, landscape architecture,
engineering, nursing, architecture,
librarianship, music, social work,
dentistry, dental hygiene, forestry, law,
medicine and pharmacy will increase
by 10 per cent.
UBC's highest fees in 1985-86 will be
the $2,000 paid by students in the
medicine and dentistry undergraduate
The Board also approved revisions in
the tuition-fee structure for graduate
students, based on the report of an ad
hoc committee established in 1984.
In the case of graduate-student fees,
the committee recommended a formula
that would have provided for a
first-year fee for master's and doctoral
programs that was 1.5 times higher
Dean of Arts
UBC's President pro tern, Dr. Robert
H.T. Smith, has announced that Dr.
Robert M. Will has agreed to accept the
appointment as dean of the Faculty of
Arts for a six-year term beginning July 1,
Dean Will submitted his resignation as
• dean of the arts faculty in June, 1984
and a search committee chaired by Dr.
Smith has met regularly since then.
In a letter to faculty members in arts,
Dr. Smith said both he and former
president K. George Pedersen  had been
approached personally by a number of
^Colleagues who suggested that Dean
Will be approached and asked to
consider continuing as dean.
Following meetings with Dr. Pedersen,
Dean Will agreed to an appointment for
a six-year term.
Dr. Smith concluded his letter to arts
faculty members: "I wish to record
publicly my deep appreciation to Dean
Will for his tireless efforts on behalf of
the University, and for his willingness to
continue to serve as dean in the
present circumstances.
Dean Will, a UBC faculty member
since 1957, has a 16-year association
' with the administration of the Faculty
of Arts. Prior to becoming dean of the
faculty in 1975, he was acting dean for
a year and an assistant dean from July 1,
than the comparable undergraduate
program fee.
The committee also recommended
that the fees for second-year master's
and second- and third-year doctoral
programs be .75 of the first-year fee.
A third recommendation of the
committee was that the fees for any
subsequent year of graduate programs
be between $550 and $600 per year.
The graduate studies fee structure
approved by the Board on March 7 did
not go as far as the ad hoc committee
recommended and is $100 or more less
than would have been the case if the ad
hoc committee's recommendations had
been accepted.
First-year fees for master and
UBC awaits further budget details
The following statement was issued by
President pro tern Dr. Robert H.T.
Smith in response to the announcement
of the B.C. budget on Thursday, March
The 1985-86 budget provides for first,
95% of the 1984-85 allocation to
Universities, and second, a "university
adjustment program" of $14.9 million
(approximately 5%). The terms of access
to this fund are as yet unclear, and we
anxiously await their clarification.
The importance placed on the clear
articulation of academic priorities
evident in the Minister's January 17,
1985 letter to the Universities Council
pervades the brief section on universities
in the budget speech. We await with
keen anticipation the details promised
about phase out costs for "less essential
low demand programs" and the
"initiatives to strengthen priority
programs." I am convinced, as is David
McLean, Chairman of the Board of
Governors, that the definition and
implementation of these terms is the
responsibility of the universities and
that university autonomy will not be

display in the UBC Library until the end of April (see story on Page 2).
doctoral students increased by only 2.86
per cent from $1,750 to $1,800 per
Fees for second-year doctoral
students declined from $1,307 to $1,300
but increased for second-year master's
students from $876 to $1,300. A similar
increase was approved for third-year
doctoral students. Doctoral and master's
students will pay $500 a year for each
subsequent registration.
The Board also approved a
recommendation that will see international
students (i.e. those enrolled on
students visas) pay 2.5 times the
corresponding fee for Canadian
citizens and permanent residents.
The differential will not apply to
international students registered in the
Faculty of Graduate Studies and to
undergraduates who were registered at
UBC in 1983-84, who will not be
subject to the differential until 1986-87.
Also approved were increases or new
special fees in various faculties for
courses in fine arts, forestry, agricultural
sciences, education, science, medicine
and applied science. The Faculty of
Law and the School of Nursing have
doubled from $100 to $200 the
enrolment deposit required by students
who have been informed that they
have been admitted.
A new fee to be imposed for the first
time next year will be a $128 charge for
participation in the Co-op Program.
Also approved iby the Board:
• A $32 Student Activity Fee (for
details see story on Page 3), which
provides for students taking less than 9
units to pay $3.50 per unit; and
• A Graduate Student Society fee of
$12 per year to be assessed on all
graduate students to retire the debt
owing to the University by the
Graduate Student Society and to provide
for any extraordinary costs associated
with building maintenance at the
Graduate Student Centre.
UN representative
on campus Friday
Canada's ambassador and permanent
representative to the United Nations,
Stephen Lewis, will be on campus Friday
(March 22) for a free, 2:30 p.m. address
in Room 104 of the Frederic Lasserre
Mr. Lewis, who returned recently from
a visit to drought-stricken areas of
Africa, will speak on "Canada at the
United Nations at its 40th Anniversary."
His UBC visit is sponsored by UBC's
Centre for Human Settlements and the
Vancouver branch of the UN Association.
A former leader of the New
Democratic Party in Ontario, Mr. Lewis
was a broadcaster and labor arbitrator
prior to his present appointment. UBC Reports, March 20,1985
Interest in British writer George
Orwell, author of 7984 and Animal
Farm as well as volumes of essays and
comment, shows no sign of slackening.
Ian Slater, a lecturer in UBC's Arts
One program, is the author of Orwell:
The Road to Airstrip One, published in
Canada this month by W.W. Norton
and Co. Slater uses a biographical
framework to trace the development of
political and social thought in Orwell's
Slater, who is also the author of three
novels, views Orwell's involvement
with the Spanish Civil War as the crucial
event in his life and the one which led
to the grim totalitarian visions of his
later novels.
Slater's book on Orwell was reviewed
in the Washington Post early in
February. The reviewer, in concluding his
article, said "It is doubtful that any
book provides a better foundation for a
full understanding of Orwell's unique
and troubled vision."
The American Library Association's
magazine Choice has selected a book
written and produced at UBC as one of
the outstanding academic books of
1984. On the ALA list is Green Cold:
The Forest Industry in British Columbia,
by Dr. Patricia Marchak of the
Department of Anthropology and
Sociology, published in 1983 by the
University of B.C. Press.
Dr. Marchak's book was the first of a
series analysing resource industries in
B.C. She is currently a member of a
UBC research team that is analysing the
B.C. fishing industry as part of the
"Fish and Ships Project."
Another UBC Press book which has
received attention recently is The
Mysteries of Montreal: Memoirs of a
Midwife, edited by Dr. Peter Ward of
UBC's history department.
Originally written by Charlotte Fuhrer,
a Montreal midwife from 1860 to 1907,
the volume was privately published in
1881. A lengthy review by William
French in the Toronto Globe and Mail
says UBC has "performed a valuable
service in.resurrecting Fuhrer's dusty
relic of the past," which he says
provides "a vivid picture of the manners
and morals of the High Victorian
period in a cosmopolitan Canadian city."
Prof. Margaret Prang, another member
of the history department, was recently
honored by the American Association
for State and Local History, which has
its headquarters in Nashville, Tennessee.
She was the recipient of the
association's Award of Merit for
"advancing the study of the Province
of British Columbia." The association
works to "advance knowledge,
understanding and appreciation of the
local history of the United States and
Professor emeritus of Education Frank
Hardwick has been honored by the
executive board of The History and
Social Science Teacher. He was one of
four winners of the journal's 1984 Award
of Merit, designed to recognize service
to and in the classroom at all levels of
education. A second winner, Caroline
Langford, was a sessional lecturer in
Education in the past.
Dr. Cyril Belshaw of the Department
of Anthropology and Sociology steps
down on March 31 after a decade as
editor of the international journal
Current Anthropology. The journal is
widely known for its pioneering
peer-commentary system of discussing
articles and its unique system of
international communication. Dr.
Belshaw will be succeeded as editor by
Dr. Adam Kuper of the University of
In February Dr. Belshaw was the
keynote speaker at a conference in
Dakar of francophone West African
editors to discuss problems of third
world editing and later this year he will
conduct a workshop in Nairobi for East
African anglophone social scientists on
the topic of preparing papers for
international publication, sponsored by
the International Federation of Scientific
Editors' Associations, of which he is
Prof. Daniel Overmyer of UBC's
Department of Asian Studies has
received a 1985-86 Wang Institute
Fellowship in Chinese Studies for his
research on "Taoist Backgrounds of
Chinese Popular Religion". Dr. Overmyer
was one of 11 recipients selected from
241 applicants from 12 countries.
Emily Carr
An exhibit of watercolors, pottery,
letters, sketches, books and memorabilia
of celebrated B.C. artist Emily Carr is on
display at the Special Collections
Division of the UBC Library.
Some of the material on display was
recently acquired by the UBC archives
through a bequest from the estate of
the late Ruth Humphrey, who was a
faculty member in the Department of
English from 1945 to 1964. Dr.
Humphrey died last October.
"Dr. Humphrey was a long-standing
friend of Emily Carr's," says University
archivist Laurenda Daniells. "It's clear
from the context of the letters that Dr.
Humphrey was one of the first of Emily
Carr's friends to discover the potential
of her writing and who encouraged her
career as a writer when ill health
prevented her from going into the forest
to sketch."
The material donated by Dr. Humphrey
adds to the rich Emily Carr collection
housed at UBC.
The display continues through April.
The Special Collections Division is
located on the fifth floor of the Main
Japanese dancers
perform at museum
A rare opportunity to view ceremonial
dances of the Ainu people, the
indigenous people of the northern
Japanese islands, Sakhalin (USSR) and
adjacent territories, takes places at the
UBC Museum of Anthropology at 8 p.m.
on Thursday, March 21.
Wearing decorated headbands and
traditional, embroidered garments, the
Ainu dancers will perform some of
their most important ritual dances.
"Today most of the Ainu people have
given up their unique lifestyle and live
in urbanized areas of lapan," says Ruth
Anderson of the Museum of Anthropology.
"The Ainu dance group is composed of
people dedicated to preserving the
traditional Ainu customs."
The performance is free with museum
Portrait of Inazo Nitobe
chosen for Japanese yen
Many people were understandably
puzzled last year when Japan's new
currency appeared.
Gracing the 5,000-yen bank note
(worth about $20 Canadian) was a
portrait of Dr. Inazo Nitobe, whose
name is associated with UBC's tranquil
and beautiful Japanese garden, which
attracts thousands of visitors to the
campus annually and serves as a quiet
retreat for members of the University
One man who can understand why
people were puzzled by the Japanese
finance ministry's decision to use Dr.
Nitobe's portrait on one of its three
reissued paper bank notes was Dr. John
Howes of UBC's Department of Asian
Studies, who has been studying the life
of the great Japanese internationalist
for some 30 years.
"After all," he said recently in his
office in UBC's Asian Centre, which is
adjacent to the Nitobe Garden,
"Nitobe has been dead for more than 50
years and during that period Japan
underwent some traumatic experiences
— militaristic government, the war in
the Pacific, the impact of the first two
atomic bombs and an almost miraculous
economic recovery in the post-war
Dr. Howes adds that the decision to
use Nitobe's portrait is symbolic of
Japan's new sense that it is a fully
accepted member of the post-war
international community. "It's quite-
understandable in the light of the fact
that when he died in Victoria, B.C. in
1933, Nitobe was unquestionably the
best known Japanese outside his own
Born in 1862, Nitobe was a member of
a samurai family that could trace its
geneology back to an eight-century
emperor. He proved to be talented at
foreign languages and one of his English
compositions, composed at age 14,
was sent for display at the 1876
Centenary Exposition in Philadelphia.
He also became proficient in German,
which he learned while doing graduate
work abroad from 1887 to 1890.
In Sapporo, where he was educated
as an agricultural economist at a new
college, Nitobe came under the
influence of American teachers and
became a Christian. On graduation he
told a professor that his ambition was to
"become a bridge across the Pacific"
linking Japan and the U.S.
It was in Geneva as a highly placed
League of Nations official that Nitobe
became acquainted with Norman
MacKenzie, a young Canadian attached
to the International Labour Organization
and the future president (1944-1962) of
the University of B.C.
In 1933 Nitobe led a delegation to an
international meeting in Banff, Alberta,
a meeting which Dr. Howes says was
Japan's "last chance to convince the
world that there was something rational
about the Japanese invasion of China."
Asia Institute plans
fundraising dinner
UBC's Institute of Asian Research is
holding a fundraising dinner on
Saturday, March 23 to help meet the
publishing costs of its newsletter, the
Asia Pacific Report. Tickets for the
12-course Chinese dinner are $25.
The Asia Pacific Report is published
five times a year and is a unique
source of information on Asia Pacific
activities both on and off the campus.
For details on the fundraising dinner,
call 228-2746 or 681-1923.
His failure to dispel the prevailing
suspicion of Japan left him a broken
man, Prof. Howes said. He and his
American-born wife, who was recovering
from a heart attack, were staying at the
Oak Bay Beach Hotel in Victoria
following the Banff meeting when
Nitobe himself fell ill. He died in
hospital within a few weeks.
The garden, opened in 1960, is
considered the finest example of its kind
outside of Japan, Dr. Howes said. "I
like to think of it as the North American
bridge pier of his span across the

Bamfield hosts
An impressive array of world-class
scientists will gather at the Bamfield
Marine Station on Vancouver Island
April 14 to 17 for a symposium on the
evolutionary biology of primitive fishes.
The Bamfield station is operated
jointly by B.C.'s three universities and        ,
the Universities of Calgary and Alberta.
A series of 30-minute papers will be
presented at the three-day symposium,
followed by discussion and question
periods. The results will be published
by Plenum Press.
Many of the scientists attending the
Bamfield conference participated in a
similar meeting 15 years ago in Oslo,
"Significant progress has been made
in recent years in the study of primitive
fishes," says Bamfield director Dr.
Ronald Foreman. "But there is a need for
researchers in a variety of i
complementary disciplines to meet
together to share their findings and
properly evaluate individual research.
Our meeting will have a strong
interdisciplinary focus."
The Bamfield symposium is being
sponsored by the North Atlantic Treaty     <

workshop funding), the Natural Sciences
and Engineering Research Council of
Canada and the Western Canadian

Students to vote on athletic fee proposal
Possibly the most crucial test ever
faced by UBC's athletic community
will take place next week at the ballot
box and not on the playing field.
On March 27, 28 and 29, students will
be asked to mark their ballots in a
referendum which would have the effect
of transferring the responsibility for
setting student athletic fees to a
proposed new athletic council, which
will have 50 per cent student
Approval of the referendum would
mean the end of the era of athletic
fee-setting by student referendum, a
method which detractors of the
existing system say has brought UBC
athletics close to financial ruin and
which has already resulted in the
curtailment or elimination of some
sports from intercollegiate and intramural
Next week's referendum to transfer
responsibility for setting athletic fees is
the outcome of a proposal approved by
UBC's Board of Governors at its
meeting of March 7. At that meeting,
the Board agreed to the introduction of
a new Student Activity Fee of $32 for
full-time students taking 9 or more
units, and $3.50 per unit for those taking
less than 9 units.
The fee was proposed in a report
prepared by Dr. Neil Risebrough, UBC's
associate vice-president, student services,
a member of the President's Office
staff and the man to whom the UBC
athletic establishment reports.
Dr. Risebrough believes that if athletic
fees stay at their present levels and
continue to be subject to campus-wide
student referendums, the inevitable
result will be a further deterioration in
the scope and quality of the
University's athletic program.
"At the moment," he said, "students
pay annually a fee of $4.50 to support
the intramural program and a $7 fee for
support of the intercollegiate athletic
program. Of that $7 fee, $4.20 goes to
Menotti opera
Gian-Carlo Menotti's opera The Saint
of Bleecker Street will have its
Canadian premiere this month with four
performances of the work at the
University of British Columbia.
UBC's Opera Theatre, directed by
Prof. French Tickner, will present the
Menotti opera on March 26, 27, 29 and
30 in the Old Auditorium. Curtain time
will be 8 p.m.
Set in New York in the 1950s, the story
centres on Annina, a tortured, mystical
young woman and her brother, Michele,
who violently opposes the old-world
values of the Italian immigrant
community in which they live.
The opera won the New York Critic's
Circle Award in 1954 and the Pulitzer
Prize the following year. This year,
Menotti won the prestigious Kennedy
Centre Award for his contributions to
Tickets for the opera at $9 ($6 for
seniors and students) are available
from the Department of Music. Ticket
reservations can be made by calling
men's athletics and $2.80 to women's
"A few years ago it took the women a
full year of hard camjjaigning to get
their share of the fee increased and the
men's fee hasn't changed in 35 years. If
the fee had been related to inflation
alone over the years, it would be in the
neighborhood of $40 today," he said.
All of which means that the
proposed new athletic council will have
up to $43.50 per student to divide up
next year (the new $32 Student Activity
Fee plus the existing athletic fees,
which Dr. Risebrough says he can't
touch since they were set as the result
of student referendums). He also
anticipates that UBC's Board of
Governors will support the athletic
program, as it has in the past.
The composition of the council, now
being worked out by the administration
in consultation with the A.M.S., will be
representative of the whole University
community, Dr. Risebrough says.
"Students will have one-half of the
total number of voting seats on the
council, which is only fair since they
are the main contributors and users.
Provision is also being made for
representation on the council by faculty
and staff and graduates of the
Asked about athletic-fee levels at
other Canadian universities, Dr.
Risebrough describes UBC's fee as being
"on the low side of average." Most
Canadian universities charge students an
athletic fee in the $40-$60 range, he
Dr. Risebrough clearly sees the new
setup revitalizing UBC athletics. "For the
first time in years," he said, "the
athletic establishment will be able to do
some planning for the future instead of
worrying every year if there is enough
money to make ends meet."
And when Dr. Risebrough says
planning, he includes in that new
athletic facilities for the campus. "I
don't expect that all our needs will be
met from the athletic fee," he said,  "but
some as yet undetermined portion of it
will go into a facilities development
Previous studies have indicated the
need for an indoor, all-weather field
house that includes a running track,
basketball and badminton courts as
well as other facilities for a broadly
based recreational and athletic program.
"The need for an artificial turf field for
soccer, field hockey and the like has
been proposed and some students have
advocated an expansion of existing
squash and racquetball facilities."
