" From the Top ' Well, the " new kid in town " , as I have been called has now been with you 14 months, and finds himself in a hazardous situation of thinking that he knows what ' s going on! While that may not be the case exactly, I do have a much better idea of the vitality and strengths of the students of Lakehead University School of Forestry and of the institution itself. This past year, we have had more forestry students enrolled than at any of the other five Canadian schools. Although we don ' t have the largest faculty, we do have a hard working one. In addition to their teaching respon- sibilities, they have initiated a review of our curricula, engendered about $350,000 worth of research grants and contracts, prepared major equipment and research development proposals and participated in a university-wide review and planning exercise. The prospects for the School are very promising, but our successes haven ' t been without losses. Prof. D. Mead resigned last year, and while Professors David, Hazenberg, and Yang are on sab- batical leave, we have had to scramble. Professors D. Walker and N. Phillips have been welcomed additions to our faculty, and we hope to acquire more like them. Larry Bockus and Joe Kapron joined the technical side of the team, and our latest member is Alvina Faykes, who is helping in the front office. We are planning to upgrade the equipment in the remote sensing and photo-interpretation laboratories, and to equip the forest management laboratories with data analysis equipment, and the biological laboratories with plant storage and analysis facilities. These improvements are the first steps we are taking to develop and improve all of our programs. To some of you, this may appear to have come too late. But despite current market problems, the demand for all types of foresters is going to increase. The era of the managed forest is dawning and the educational training ob- tained through us must be first class. Please remember that your education begins rather than ends here. The demands made on you by society, the profession, and the forest for its " conservation " (i.e. wise use) are going to be very great. Consider the doors always open for more Lakehead experience. In the past year some progress has been made towards our mutual goal of making Lakehead ' s forestry program second to none. You, as students, and graduates, make a significant contribution to the achievement of that goal. I no longer feel like the " new kid in town " - thank you for your welcome. A.J. Kayll Director MJS 4
