•W >< / t Xc TOE OTTAWA HERALD Saturday, March 16, 196? Use Rats In Chemistry Study By LOIS SMITH A rumor that rats inhabit Ward Science Hall, Ottawa University, is true. However, the animals are there by intent. Two senior research class members, Dennis Powers and Kent Stevenson, are using them for a study of the relationship of diet fat to blood cholesterol. Dennis has divided the 16 albino rats into four groups. The control group receives a normal diet of pet food. The others receive a diet of skim milk fortified with vitamins and oils mixed, which contains 50 per cent fat by weight. One group receives highly saturated fat, another moderately saturaged fat and the third a highly unsaturated fat. Before being placed on the special diets, the rats were all fed the same diet for a few days to stabilize their weights. Dennis then ran cholestrol tests and began the special feedings. The projects of feeding and testing the rats will continue for six or seven weeks with blood testing at about one-week intervals. The color density test for blood fat is only one type of test being carried out. Later along in the project, Dennis will sacrifice and dissect the| animals and analyze the tissues. This time of testing the animals and recording the results is producing pages of facts and figures which will be recorded in graphs and charts. Kent's chief part of the project is concerned with a comparison of methods. He will do several kinds of analyses and compare the different methods to see how they check out on the same rats. The specially - bred rats from an experimental laboratory in Kansas City are all from the same lineage. They were about % months of age at the start which compares with middle age in humans. "It takes about an hour a day to feed the rats and weigh them — more at the start of the project," says Dennis. "We've named them all and notice they have definite personalities. They are all tame and like attention." The instructor, Elizabeth Clairborne, points out that it was necessary to buy only hail screen and pie tins to make the cages. Feed cups are porcelain laboratory dishes, and the water bottles and drinking tubes were also lab equipment. "We feel that this sort of thing is valuable to a student," Miss Clairborne says. "The purpose is to give the student an opportunity to use research tech* niques and procedures and to use some original ideas." Dennis says that although the experimental idea may not be original, he has directed his procedure along different lines from similar projects. During the first semester he did research on the subject in Linda Hall library, Kansas City, and in KU Science library. "I hope to study medicine," Dennis says. "Blood cholesterol is a highly controversial subject of great interest to the medical profession and laymen. Although this research is not an authentic study on the subject, I feel that it is good training as premedical study." Both Dennis and Kent are chemistry majors.

Adult Classes Are Popular By DICK CRAWFORD WILLIAMSBURG -Adult night classes are not a new thing at Williamsburg High School, but the response to announcements that classes will be held at night each year brings a fairly consistent number of people to the •chool for enrollment. This year 41 adults signed up for classes in typing, welding and a young farmers class. The typing class has been taught for several years and the other two classes date back to the early 1950s. Earl Anderson, vocational agriculture teacher at Williamsburg High, began teaching the young farmers class nine years ago. Two years later he started the welding class. Anderson has found great satisfaction in the night courses. "The opportunity to spread ourselves outside of day school NO HUNTING WITH THE PECKING - Shirley McCormack, Williamsburg High School typing teacher, looks over shoulder of adult night student, Mrs. Forrest Bond.

In some states vocational ag teachers are required to teach a certain number of adult classes outside of their regular scedule. There is no such regulation in Kansas, but this state encourages vocational agriculture classes in night school by giving financial support. Anderson has eight students enrolled in his welding class and 15 in the young farmers class. Each class period runs two hours. This year's enrollment is about the same as it has been in past years. The welding class is held on Monday night and the young fanners class on Wednesday night. Mrs. Shirley McCormick, Williamsburg, is the regular high school typing teacher and also the night class teacher. Out of the 18 students enrolled in typing only six have any knowledge of the subject. Two of (hem are self-taught, typists who enrolled in Mrs. McCormack's class find out how much they know and make up for what they couldn't teach themselves. The other four are in the class to get a more advanced knowledge. The other 12 students started in the class this year with nothing more than interest in learning to type. Most of the students are from Williamsburg and a few from Ottawa. The classes in all three courses run one semester and have been termed successful year after year.
