Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 19, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta -The Herald Family Chris Stewart New York Times Service WASHINGTON Scientists have discovered a way of taking living cells apart and putting them back together again in ways that may reveal some of the secrets of aging, of cancer and of some of the most fundamental processes of life. This reconstruction of cells growing in laboratory flasks can be done by the millions and within a span of several hours, according to scientists involved in the research. Thus, for example, large numbers of aged cells could be given nuclei from young cells. or cancer cells could be given the genetic machinery of normal cells. Both experiments might answer important scientific questions: would a young nucleus make an old cell young? Would a normal nucleus make a cancer cell revert to normal? Similarly, scientists hope to learn more about cell differentiation, the crucial process by which cells all having the same genetic endowment differentiate to form tissues of the eyes, heart, brain, liver and all the other parts of the body.

I. Baker school it will spell 30 for this seasoned drama teacher whose retirement at age 60 will give him time for private coaching. His love of acting has been evident ever since he began teaching in Coaldale in 1939 (the year, now retired principal, R. I. Baker, after whom the school is named, arrived from He wrote and produced the 'Pageant of the a display depicting the cultural background of the 21 ethnic groups attending the school, for the grand opening in 1950. As the school's creative drama teacher he hasn't produced monthly plays just because it was expected of him. "If I find a play that excites me I'll do he said. He feels up to Grade 10 the emphasis shouldn't be on theatre but on creative drama including improvizatibn, concentration, sensory perception, imagination, creativity and movement, all necessary elements in the training of an actor. "All this enables the shy youngster to develop knowing he won't be exposed to a critical he says. He has a preference for John Millington Synge, the Irish playwright he loves Synge's language and theatricality and has already produced four of his plays. Coaldale's appreciation of Mr. Robison and the Coaldale Little Theatre he directs was best demonstrated when the group left to participate in the Dominion Drama Festival in Halifax and a motorcade of more than 30 cars accompanied them to Kenyon Field for their departure east. Some were grandmothers and others young people; one had newly arrived from Hong Kong while some had been in Canada for years. But they all had one thing in common. They wanted to learn basic English. These were the 35 students enrolled in the twice-weekly classes for new Canadians held at the YWCA this past winter and spring. Some of them were from Holland, others from Japan and one was a Russian woman who had seldom held a pencil in her hand prior to coming to the classes. They achieved their common goal by learning to read, write and speak English. Ten volunteer teachers including housewives, senior citizens, students and professional people taught them on a one- to-one or one-to-three basis. They were furnished with text books. They provided the determination themselves. Some completed a work book per week while others took learn English they disl and by the time they arrived at their wind-up social last Tuesday evening everyone could understand one another well. Some volunteer teachers had taken an extra- curricular interest in their students by taking them shopping, to teas and to social function in an effort to give them additional exposure to English. Students brought ethnic dishes to the last class session. A few months ago they would have had difficulty explaining the ingredients, but thanks to the English classes they could now bridge the language barrier and had gained confidence as they learned.

The operator of a mine north of the hamlet he had to organize his own school district to facilitate his offspring's educational requirements. That was a long time ago admits this LCI English teacher who retired recently after 38 years in the classroom, 14 at the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute. Miss Underdahl got her start at the one-room Valley View school south of Seven Persons, where her class included 30 students ranging from grades one to nine. Sorry to retire? Yes. in some ways, she admits, but feels it is time to start reading and writing for pleasure rather than with class preparation in mind. One of her prime desires is to visit Undridal. Norway, from which her father's family derived its name (he.later had it anglicized) and where every resident is related to her.
