Waldo by Kevin Thomas passing we stuff! its a WRAP! ^ Undergraduate Fellows Program lets students conduct research By Bridget Harrow Reporter Most students become queasy at the mention of hav ing to write an essay. And many would panic if they had to do in-depth research on a topic for two consecutive semesters, and then write a formal thesis. However, there are a few students who would like the chance to take on such a task, and the Undergrad uate Fellows Program gives them this opportunity. The program is a two-semester research project, which produces an honors thesis. Under the direction of an adviser, students are able to conduct independent research in their Fields. During their senior year, stu dents in the program substitute any six credit hours in their major, three each semester, for research problem courses. “The program is designed for those who intend to pursue a career in research,” said Louise Canfield, di rector of the University Honors Program. “It’s an op portunity for students to gain invaluable research expe rience, work closely with distinguished faculty and benefit from research discussions with other students.” To be eligible for the program, students must have an overall grade-point ratio of 3.25 or better at the end of the first semester of their junior year. Applicants must file a preproposal with the Honors Program of fice. Once the preproposal is approved, prospectivefel lows are notified, and they must submit a formal propo sal written under an adviser’s direction. Canfield said the main reason applicants must submit both proposals is to ensure a good student-adviser relationship. ‘T he student-adviser relationship is absolutely cru cial,” Canfield said. "The adviser must think carefully about this. He has to be aware of the time, and in some cases, the financial commitments. All good studems don’t make good researchers, just as all professorsdoni make good advisers. If they do not communicate well, then the whole program is a failure.” At the end of the program, each fellow mustsubmita senior honors thesis describing his research. The theses are bound and placed in the Archives of the University Library. And at the annual Undergraduate Fellows Symposium, fellows present a professional paper sum marizing their research findings, and awards for the best theses are given. Fellows are recognized at Com mencement and their transcripts identify them as Uni versity Undergraduate Fellows. Between 100 and 110 students are selected each year If space is a limitation, preference is usually given to students with prior experience in the Honors program But Canfield said space is usually not why some stu dents’ preproposals are declined. Primarily, prepropo sals are declined because of missed deadlines, she said. Health center wing to get oxygen facility By Cindy Bomba Reporter The opening of the new addition to the A.P. Beutel Health Center will upgrade Texas A&M’s hyperbaric medicine facilities, says Dr. William P. Fife, hyperbaric laboratory direc tor. Hyperbaric medicine is the use of compressed air and oxygen in the treatment of diseases, says Fife, pro fessor emeritus of biology. “In our hyperbaric chambers, we compress air and have the patients either breathe oxygen through a mask or we apply the oxygen topi cally to the wound,” he says. “It is very rare for a university to have hyperbaric facilities,” Fife says. “A&M is one of about five universi ties in the nation with these facili ties.” The facility is located nearly three miles from the main campus, adja cent to the Nuclear Science Center. Hyperbaric medicine has been used widely since the early 1900s for diving-related sickness, Fife says, but it wasn’t until the 1960s that it started to be seriously considered as a treatment for other illnesses. In the last 15 years, several ill nesses have been found to be treata ble with hyperbaric medicine. Among them are carbon monoxide poisoning, soft-tissue ulcers, non union fractures, failing skin grafts, gangrene and migraine headaches, Fife says. “With carbon monoxide poison ing, half of the poison can be re moved in 22 minutes in a hyperbaric chamber,” Fife says. “It normally takes five hours for the body to re move the same amount of poison.” Many diseases once thought to be untreatable are getting positive re sults through hyperbaric medicine, Fife says, including multiple sclero sis. “Cirrhosis of the liver is often the result of alcholism or ingestion of some other poison,” Fife says. “It looks like in the early stages, it can be cured or reversed with hyperbaric treatment.” The new hyperbaric laboratory will be completed in about 60 days and the chamber will be moved to the addition in about 30 days. The chamber must be placed in a hole about three feet deep and put on a concrete slab that can hold the pressure of hydrostatic water test- in &- This is a testing procedure that must be done about every five years to maintain safety. The chamber is filled with water and checked for leaks. If there is a leak, the chamber could explode when pressurized. “People don’t understand the amount of pressure used out here,” Fife says. “If one small thing went wrong,you could be dead in 30 or 40 seconds.” ‘Bubbas’ win tug-of-war in Austin • AUSTIN (AP) — “Bubba” brawn proved better than “yup pie” brain, when southside resi dents proved their claim to being the city’s better half in a weekend game of tug-of-war across the Colorado River. North Austinites put their rep- ( utations on the line and cameoul all wet in the event hilled as the world’s largest tug-of-war. The silver tug-of-war cham pion cup, decorated at the base with a piece of rope, sits on the south side of the river, along with its self-proclaimed bubbas, who claim to have more brawn than northside residents. “We’re the bubbas, we’re south Austinites,” said 360-pound Pat Bennett. “The South will always triumph.” The event brought hundreds of participants to the hanks of the Colorado River and thousands of onlookers who found it a good excuse for a picnic. Charles Gandy, a former state representative, organized the big tug to raise money to build a youth hostel in Austin. Hostels are inexpensive places for travel ers to stay overnight. Between $50,000 and $60,000 was raised, he said. COUNTDOWN ’87 (Almost There!) Soon you won’t have to see these ads anymore! Only 4 days!
