Take a lesson from the undergrads

Re: I'm a geological rebel...photo, Jan. 29

To the editor:

As third-year honours chemistry students we are constantly reminded of the importance of adhering to the university's proper laboratory safety code. Primarily this requires the use of adequate eye protection, so imagine our surprise when on the front page of The Gazette we saw a graduate geological sciences student blatantly violating this regulation.

Does this mean the more educated we get, the more immune we become to eye injuries? Or is it only the graduate students who are exempt from these regulations?

If the graduate students wish to see the proper eye-wear procedure, a demonstration by the undergrads can be arranged.
