Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 23, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 4 THI LITHMIDOi HERALD Monday, July 23, 1973 UHIOKIAIS As the 1973 fair ends... The 1973 Lethbridge fair, now con- cluded, was generally quite good. Every fair-minded person could pro- duce a list of many excellent fea- tures, as well as many deficiencies. Since the lists would probably be dif- ferent, it is not necessary to submit one now. Those in charge of the fair can be counted on to give the mat- ter critical and honest examination. But this is the time to say a hearty thank-you to the many scores of peo- ple who helped make the show as good as it was. We don't speak of the salaried people, although some of them went far beyond duty.-We have in mind especially the direc- tors and the committees and all those who gave their time so gener- ously simply because they wanted to. In every sense the show belongs to the community. But most people simply enjoyed it, and made no par- ticular contribution to creating it. A production like that does not just happen. Thousands of hours of work go into it. From those who received to those who gave, again "thank you." Creating the desire Strong undergraduate programs opec challenges to freshman who "haven't yet chosen a career and en- thuse and motivate those with only a casual interest. This quality, plus the innovative, unstructured programs offered at the U of L has received extravagant praise from researchers Barbara and Terry Robinson of Ontario who daim the U of L's psychology lab- oratories supersede those of several larger eastern Canadian universi- ties. Whereas larger institutions sometimes tend to give undergradu- ate course work superficial atten- tion, while the main resources are focused on graduate students and the professional schools, the U of L is devoted to giving the undergradu- ate a first-rate and varied learning experience. In this respect the Rob- insons "have found the U of L in- comparable to anything else." The wide acclaim earned by U of L researchers recently substantiates the Robinson's findings. Mulloy Han- sen Barnwell, Alberta, who grad- uated with distinction from the U of I, in 71, now engaged in research on the effects of drugs on the self- ftiraulation responses, under the aus- pices of a U of L research grant, has had his article reprinted in the 1972 issue of the Psychopharmacolo- gia journal resulting in numerous requests for reprints from other re- searches. This medical student, who transferred from the U of L to the U of A, now engaged in melanoma research studies at the W- W. Cross Cancer Institute in Edmonton, has distributed over 500 copies of the articles (highly unusual for a young researcher) and is still receiving re- quests for copies. The Robinsons, both 1973 recipi- ents of Research on Drug Abuse scholarships, who studied at the U of L a year ago, now back conduct- ing a summer project on the results of injecting LSD directly into various areas of rats' brains, believe this will be a pioneer study to show how LSD affects the electro-chemical ac- tivity of the brain. They are em- ploying a newly developed micro- injection process, used as yet by only a few, learned from their U of L psychology professor Dr. Ian Wi- shaw. (Initially such a project re- quired hours of minute brain sur- gery on rats, to prepare them for the LSD injections.) Potential researchers need facili- ties, laboratories, equipment and li- braries but just as important is the stimulation received from profess- ors, who, enthused themselves, pass a desire for knowledge on to their students. Many a researcher credits his success to a professor, who, by encouraging his initial interest dur- ing his undergraduate years, gave him a desire for further knowledge. It appears, from the success of Mr. Hansen and the Robinsons., the U of L with its low student faculty ratio is an institution excelling in this priority.
