A re- searcher says he has dispuned a prevalent notion amone ath- letes tliat smoking marijuana improves physical performance. In fact, says Dr. Mohan Singh, who used marijuana provided by the fedeial govern- ment in his studies, physical performance actually rle'erio- rales by use of the drug. He found marijuana has an adverse effect on heart beat, blood pressure and endurance. He noted Ihat many university athletes, perhaps even a major- ity, smoke marijuana before comne'ilinn. Many think their aCilutic abil- ity be improved ;i result, said Dr. Singh, an associate professor of education at the University of Alberta But his study, be mm in Junr, shoots down this HOI ion. lie used 18 university athletes and for- mer top hish Fcliccl nthlclrs. in- cluding a couple who are mem- bers of Ihe university's Golden Bears football team and a cou- ple who their onu mari- juana in 'he country. The federal department of health and c I fare, vhicb awarded Dr. S'uigJi the grant, also pushed tlirough much of the legal red tape and provided Uie marijuana. Each test subject was exam- ined three times for heart rate, blood pressure, grip strength, sense of touch, eye-hand co-oidi- nation and lung capacity, the first lime without smoking any- thing, the second and third after smoking either active mari- juana or marijuana with the ac- tive drug ingredient removed. Xci'hei' the subject nor the in- vestigator who scored the sub- ject were told what was being smoked. Although (lie results are not Thomas back THOUSAND OAKS, Calif.

Ilic marijuana was shown to increase the heart rate by "as much as .10 per cent." Dr. Singh said in an in- terview. Blood pressure rose by 20 to per cent and endurance, as measured by a 13-minute stinl on a bicycle exerciser, dropped off as much as 40 per cent. In the scries of four concen- tration and co-ordination tests, subjects who had smoked mari- juana failed the first of three at- tempts, but they caught up by the third, reaching the levels they had recorded when they did not smoke. Vital lung capacity did not seem to be affected by smoking marijuana, Dr. Singh said.

"We had some athletes at Pincher last said Max Gibb, regional director for the Department of Youth in Leth- bridgc, "but would you believe WR will have to accomodate some this year? The Honorable Gordon Tay- lor, Minister of Highways and former Minister of Youth, for the second year declared the Games officially opened Wed- nesday morning and it was down to business. Four1 of 10 events highlighted opening day activities with swimming, track and field, archery and boys' slow pilch, sharing the spotlight. The track and field competi- :ion Wednesday involved both boys and girls. The gals took lart in track events while the joys competed in the field cate- jory. Today the gals will de- clare winners in the field events with the boys battling it out 'or top honors in track compe- itions. Swimming was also on today's agenda as the finals in most events were slated to be run off. Archery was also set to come to a close while girls' siow pitch took over the base- ball diamonds.

Last year's Games carried the theme "mass competition for those who were willing to take part. The ini- tial objective was reached with room lo spare. This year, 1971, has surpass- ed all expectations, and only '.he first day has gone by the boards.
