After a presentationand discussion concerning the objectives and present problems of our Institute, Dr. McEwen was made anhonorary Newfoundlander by means ofthe "traditional Screech initiation".
Two scholarships, each valued at$ 500, have been instituted by the localCIFST section to recognize academicexcellence and participation in CIFSTactivities by Food Science and FoodTechnology students in Newfoundland.The first awards will be given in the fall1988.
Good news concerning membership.The number of CIFST members in oursection has shown a significantincrease from 40 at the end of 1987 to80, thanks to vigorous recruitmentactivities conducted by our local executive.
de commencer a preparer le congres.En outre, etant donne que tous lesprofits du congres de 1991 serontverses au Fond des bourses de I'ICSTA,nous sommes certains que vous Continuerez a voir les bonnes raisons qu'ily a de continuer a appuyer cettemanifestation importante pour leCanada.
May 29 - June 1
The 1991 IUFoST Congress Committee would like to express appreciationto the many CIFST Members who havedemonstrated their support for theInternational Union of Food Scienceand Technology Congress we will behosting in Toronto in three years.
In late 1987 we mailed requests for$ 5 contributions to every Member andin response we have collected about$3300. This will help in establishingworking capital for our Committee aswe begin planning for this large undertaking. And since all profits from the1991 Congress will be directed to theCIFST Scholarship Trust Fund, we knowyou will continue to see the benefits insupporting this important Canadianevent.

Rick Y. Yada is a graduate of theDepartment of Food Science, Universityof British Columbia and, upon graduation in 1984, joined the Department ofFood Science, University of Guelph. Dr.Yada's research interests lie in the areasof structure-function relationships ofmilk-clotting enzymes, immobilizedenzymes and the biochemistry andphysiology of chilling injury in varioushorticultural crops. His teachingresponsibilities include: undergraduatecourses in food chemistry and theeffects of postharvest handling andprocessing on fruit and vegetable quality, and graduate courses in food proteins and postharvest physiology.
Dr. Yada has been involved withCIFST as a member of the Awards,Educational Affairs and Student AffairsCommittee, as well as being a memberof the 1987 CIFST Conference organizing Committee.
