Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 3, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta It THE LITHiWDOI HIRALD WtAiMCtoy, AprH Bob Stanfield, 60, has lots of energy ST. JOHN'S, Nfld. (CP) Robert Stanfield turns 60 next week but his'staff says he's not getting older. And if his three-day visit to Newfoundland is any indication, he's not losing any 'physical stamina. By the time he returns to Ottawa today, he will have travelled close to miles, visited five Newfoundland centres, gave three news conferences, toured a paper' mill, attended a hockey game, addressed a rally, spoke on two radio openline shows and one television program, attended a state dinner and took part in a bag full of other functkMB. this trip, one of five fast ex- cursions in the last nine weeks, started early Saturday morning in Ottawa with a flight that stopped MI Montreal and Sydney, N.S., before reaching Stephenville, a community on Newfound- land's west coast. After meeting people there and holding a news conference, he made a one- hour drive to Corner Brook, where he gave another news conference, spoke at a rally and. attended a hockey game.

Phone 328-8196 327-3610 Mr. Stanfield was strolling behind his hotel before boarding a helicopter to carry him to Grand Falls and later to Gander, on the northeast side of the island. In Grand Falls he made a one-hour tour of the Price Newfoundland Ltd. paper mill, up and down seemingly dozens of flights of stairs in the hot, steamy mill. A helicopter flight to Gander followed, with a short stop for a bowl of soup, then a five-hour flight over the Atlantic in a pre-Second World War DC-3. The object of the trip was to locate and observe foreign fishing fleets, which -New- foundland's four Conservative MPs say are scooping up tons of spawning fish with ho thought for conservation. The old twin-engined plane groaned over hundreds of square miles Of ice-chdked ocean off the Labrador coast. No foreign vessels were sighted and the plane turned around and flew more than the length of the island to St. John's. Mr. Stanfield's 16-hour day was capped with a late dinner at which his dry .wit gave the impression that he wasn't the least bit tired. BAPCO LATEX VELVET-LUSTRE ENAMEL... THE DURABILITY OF ENAMEL.

Cancer virus still elusive An olive tree in Spain a sketch by U of L artist, Geraldine Beaulieu Artist gains from overseas touring At one point in her career, art student Geraldine Beaulieu may well have been the fastest in Europe. But Ms. Beaulieu toted pens, pencils and sketch pads, rather than pistols. A third- year student in the University of Lethbridge bachelor of fine arts program, she worked in two rather unique off-campus courses last semester. And when Ms. Beaulieu talks about off-campus, she doesn't mean just downtown, or in a neighboring community she means abroad. Last fall, she enrolled in two independent study courses at the U of L, thereby obtaining the chance to set up her own faculty-approved curriculum and pursue learning after her own-fashion. As an art maior, she'd long planned to see for herself the originals by artists such as Rembrandt, Van Gogh and Picasso, works which had hitherto been only names and reproductions in textbooks. Therefore, her course proposals were simple in concept: she would travel to the major art museums and galleries in Europe, polishing her own artistic skills as she studied major works and corresponding regularly with U of L art advisors Larry Weaver and Herb Hicks, to ensure her projects were progressing properly. Apparently, her projects were: she received credit for both courses. UNUSUAL APPROACH A somewhat unusual approach? Yes, but members of the U of L art department had enough faith in Ms. Beaulieu's talent and initiative .to. approve. Accompanied by her husband, her five-year old son Lee, her sister Wendy Hamilton and basic artistic paraphernalia, Ms. Beaulieu began her art tour in Holland. There she absorbed, studied, sketched and basked in quantities of art in both the traditional and modern schools. Living in a van which they purchased abroad, the Beaulieus travelled from Holland to Belgium, then on to France, Spain and Morocco. They spent most of their time in Spain because it was relatively cheap and moderate in climate. In all, the Beaulieu's spent three months abroad. They'd planned to stay longer but came home because "we'd had enough; it was more expensive than we'd been led to believe and we were running out of money." "I actually think I learned, more from the galleries and museums in Holland than anywhere else. That stands to reason; It was the first place we stopped and I was very recalls Ms. Beaulieu. "I have to admit that towards the end of the trip, I got awfully tired of going to galleries. But I always tried to see all there was, wherever we stopped. I'd feel guilty if I didn't, thinking I spent all this money and effort to get here, and it might be a long time before I'm back. So I kept at it." Ms. Beaulieu says she drew, painted and sketched almost constantly. In fact, because of what she calls the "gypsy life" her family was leading, she completed more work than she'd expected and was more productive than at home. However, because of excessive shipping costs, she had to abandon the plan of sending work home to her U of L professors for appraisal. ESSENTIAL EXPERIENCE "It would be profitable for all art students to travel and absorb new culture and says Ms. Beaulieu. "I was away from the structure of certain classes and living patterns I'd had at home, so I was really able to let loose; experiment and try different interpretations and styles." Larry Weaver, one of the art department advisors for Ms. Beaulieu's independent study abroad feels such an experience can have very positive results, providing the student involved is mature, committed and has initiative. Armed with prior knowledge of the countries she was to visit, Ms. Beaulieu was not surprised by the cultures encountered in most countries, except Morocco. Morocco, she says, even when one knows what to expect, is a totally different lifestyle: most North Americans go into instant 'cultural shock' during their first few hours there. She was amazed at the artistic sophistication of the public in the countries she visited and found it a very healthy and encouraging attitude. "In Canada, people place art on some kind of higher or low level it's not part of their everyday life, they don't need she observes. "I let the mood influence she says of her studies abroad. By JAN1 B. BftODY New Yeik TtaMM BerrlM NEW YORK Mere man 60 yean after the discovery that viruses can cause cancer in animals, the identification and isolation of a human cancer virus remains in elusive achievement. The search for such a virus has been studded with false claims and unfulfilled predictions, and recently at an American Cancer Society yet another prediction was made. It was that this year would see the unequivocal discovery of a human cancer virus. But while virologists in a dozen different laboratories are racing to prove that'the virus they are studying does indeed cause cancer in man, serious questions are being raised about the purpose and direction of this intense and costly research and its ultimate usefulness to the prevention of cancer during this century. Even with a human cancer virus in hand, experts in the field say, it would take decades of research to establish the safety and effectiveness of any vaccine that might be developed against it. And at best, the vaccine would protect only a of the 100 different types of cancer that strike Americans each year. Ten years ago, the National Cancer Institute, which directs the nations fight against cancer, set up a special program to determine whether viruses cause cancer in man and if so, to develop means of preventing or controlling those cancers. But in an official review of the program released last month, a committee of prestigious scientists headed by Dr. Norton Zinder of Rockefeller University challenged its goals saying, "it is now 10 years and a quarter of a billion dollars later, and the same two objectives remain. It was the assumptions that were wrong. There did not, nor does there exist sufficient knowledge to mount such a narrowly targeted program." At the same time, some physicians and scientists fear that in pursuing the holy grail of human cancer viruses (this year 57.7 million of the institute's 589 million budget goes to virus needed funds and research are being diverted from other known and suspected causes of cancer, some of whiqh may be more directly applicable to cancer prevention and control. At the recent seminar, Dr. Paul Black of Harvard, himself an institute-funded cancer vriologist, challenged the contentions of others in his field that one or more human. cancer viruses were nearly in hand and urged that more attention be paid to the cancer-causing potential of chemicals, hormones and radiation. His pta was retteited oy others at the semtBtr who estimated that 85 per cent of iiuman cancers hive an environmental cause; even if viruses are also involved, control of the environmental trigger court theoretically prevent the disease. Black objected to the "umbrella" approach of some of the nation's leading virologists, saying "the problems will be very difficult to solve, and I think the task would be a lot simpler if attention were focused on a few cancers instead of trying to show that every cancer is caused by a virus which we doubt in the first place." He was. referring to a report by Dr. Albert Sabin, who developed the oral polio vaccine and is now a consultant to the. Cancer Institute, that 25 per cent of human cancers are associated with a virus type known as herpes and that the 'search should be on for viruses that may be causing the remaining 75 per cent of. malignancies. Dr. Fred Rapp, viroldgist at Hershey- Medical Centre in Pennsylvania, 'noted 'that while most people become infected with herpes viruses, only a relative handful develop cancer. "What happens to the virus in the few people who get cancer? Hardly anyone is looking into this Rapp said, although the answer might yield ways of protecting against the disease. Rapp also said that more emphasis should be placed on preventive approaches to cancers believed to be caused by viruses. "We were able to prevent polio without knowing how the virus caused he observed. He said, for example, that vaccines might be developed from strains of a virus that themselves do not cause cancer but can protect against infection by a cancer-causing relative. Such an approach was used in the Marek's disease which prevents cancer in chickens. In defense of the Cancer Institute's virus program, Dr. John Moloney, who heads it, said that a great deal had been learned about what a virus is, how it was expressed in the cell and how it might, be controlled biochemically. This kind of information might be used for diagnosis and therapy. "A cure-all a vaccine was never implied in the Moloney said.
