Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 11, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Lost on an assignment Thursday, October 11, 1873 _ THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Schools boys make headlines Marijuana users can not judge potency of drug TORONTO (CP) Mari- juana smokers, even those who smoke more than 18 joints" a week, are unable to judge the potency of the drug they are smoking, recent Toronto experiments have shown. Other results indicate that marijuana users, unlike users of other drugs, do not need in- creasingly larger doses to keep achieving a "nice high EFIOl OPTICAL PRESCRIPTION CO Dr Howard Cappell of the Addiction Research Founda- tion conducted an initial ex- periment with 12 subjects ranging m age from 21 to 28 who were paid each for five sessions In the second experiment, conducted jointly with his wife, Dr Patricia Pline of the University of Toronto, 60 sub- jects were used Their marijuana experience ranged from smoking more than 18 cigarettes a week to about two a month Potency of the marijuana used varied as did the length of the cigarettes Dr. Chappell said the volun- teers could smoke as much as they wished to obtain a "nice high." Results indicated even ex- perienced smokers could not ji ige the potency of the mari- juana they were using, he said. He also found the most ex- perienced "didn't need more of the drug to reach an accep- table high." Meanwhile, some interest has been expressed in possible research into the theory of Dr Harry Slade, a Toronto den- tist, that marijuana smokers appear to have less tooth decay Dr Colin G Miles of the Ad- diction Research Foundation said he has had some dis- cussions with Dr. Slade and plans to refer a research pro- posal to a clinical phar- macologist HERE'S WHATTHE PACKAGE INCLUDES.

Britain bans arms sales LONDON (CP) Four schoolboys made headlines in the British press last Easter weekend when they dis- appeared in a snowstorm dur- ing a mountaineering ex- pedition in north Wales. Their adventure ended hap- pily the following Tuesday when they were spotted by a search helicopter and plucked unharmed from their moun- tain top The boys had been carrying out an assignment required to qualify for the Gold Award, top prize offered by the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme, and the incident prompted critical comment against the 17-year-old Com- monwealth youth project. The criticism died down quickly when investigation established that the boys were adequately trained and equipped and had done the right thing by staying in their tent when the storm broke More than boys and girls aged 14 and up have par- ticipated in the program since its inception, the numbers in- creasing by about in each of the last three years. There were par- ticipants in 1972, from Britain and the remainder from other Commonwealth countries. Because of the popularity of the awards, the upper age limit has been extended to 25 from 21. The awards are not com- petitive. Any entrant who suc- cessfully follows his chosen plan to its conclusion receives the award for which he is en- tered. Candidates for the Bronze Award, the least demanding, must undertake some form of social or community service and pursue one or two aca- demic, practical or artistic in- terests for at least six months, showing evidence of progress as well as intelligence and sustained application. In addition, a boy is re- quired to take a course de- signed to make him "attain a reasonable standard of fit- ness" and a girl follows a program called "Design for intended to encour- age her to "make the most of herself and to develop the ability to run her future home." Finally, candidates undergo training leading to an ex- cursion in "normal" country on foot or by bicycle which in- cludes a night's camping For the Silver Award, inter- ests must be pursued for a full year and the expedition, which may involve sailing, canoeing or riding, demands two nights out of doors. The Gold Award, for which en- trants must be 16 or over, re- quires an expedition into "wild country" with three nights out of doors and a higher level of participation in the other activities. The trustees of the scheme, whose chairman is the Duke of Edinburgh, license regional operating authorities to ad- minister the awards The authorities approve each candidate's program, supply information and guid- ance, provide instructors as needed and, in the interests of safety, organize groups for the outdoor excursions. Fi- nally, they examine the candi- dates' progress and grant their awards. QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC .EDDY DIETRICH Cwltftod DMiM MMhMIe Capitol Mg.
