Dr. John McTavish was com- menting on the policy, intro- duced July 1, requiring physi- cians to obtain special licences and do mountainous paper work hi using methadone, a synthet- ic narcotic drug. 'Methadone is an innocent drug, a useful Dr. Mc- Tavish said. "It is unwise for the government to get involved in the medical profession's pre- scription of drugs."

Under the new policy, a pa- tient can only take under supervision so he cannot give it to others, Dr. Angus said.

He made the comment Fri- day following his official instal- lation as the second president of the U of L. He has been president since Dr. Sam Smith left last year. Dr. Beckel told the convoca- tion: "Almost the only available agency to find out, to know and to pass on knowledge is the university. "The university must shelter and develop thinkers, experi- menters, inventors, teachers and students who, without re- sponsibility for action, will ex- plore the phenomenon of life and endeavor to understand it.
