These scientists claim Dr. Fraenkel-Conrat, by chemical means, wax able to obtain virus nucleic acid that was aeem-ingly undamaged, a feat not previously achieved.

Such "tailor-made' viruses might give immunity but be incapable of causing disease. Second, virus antigens might be developed, t using virus fragments. Antigens stimulate the production of antibodies, which in turn fight disease. Fragments of viruses, like those observed In the electron microscope, might bestow immunity to the whole virus. Along other lines of investigation, the research offers an important avenue for the study of heredity in all living things. If one self-duplicating system can be made from inert material, it may be possible to reproduce other self-duplicating systems, such as chromosomes, the carriers of hereditary characteristics. MAY CREATE YIRI'S Another possibility is the eventual synthesis of viruses themselves. Dr. Wendell Stanley of the University of California, di rector of the virus laboratory, in which the work was done, said that fragments of about 20,000 molecular weight are within the range of chemical analysis of structure and ultimate synthesis. Fragments of this size are found in the broken viruses. It might be possible to make such fragments combine into another grouping of fragments in- the 100,000 molecular weight range. These are the ones that go together to reconstitute the viruses. The scientists also said the work may have some psychological effect on scientists themselves. Viruses have been held in a certain awe by scientists because they possess properties of living things. When made out of inert materials, viruses would become more than ever a problem of arrangement of chemical compon ents. The research was supported by the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis and the U. S. public helath service. Well-Dressed Man And His Needs Th well-dressed man, says the Jewelry Industry council, should have at least' 25 items in his Jewelry wardrobe. Whatever Is missing from his collection is, of course a Christmas possibility for the puzzled shopper. A list of the jewelry essentials given out by the council includes wrist watch for business and sports, pocket watch and chain for evening wear; identification bracelet, ring, collar pin, tie clasp, tie chain, key chain, charm for watch chain; diamond or pearl studs and cuff links, plain gold cuff links; scarf pin, gold or silver pen and pencil; gold pocket knife, cigaret case, cigaret lighter; gold or silver belt buckle, bill clasp, wallet with gold or silver; initials; emblem lapel button with matching ring, cuff links and tie slide; gold latch key, umbrella with gold or silver handle or initial plates. Pause for breath! Right Side Drive Was Just Whim NEW YORK (SS) Americans drive on the right side of the road today because of an unknown Pennsylvania wagon-maker's whim nearly two centuries ago, He might well have been a southpaw, because his widely used Conestoga wagon, red-and-blue colonal vehicle that could travel over soft ground at a four-mile-ah-hour clip, had its controls on the left. The driver walked along on the left side of the wagon. Or if he was tired, he could hop on the "lazy board," also on the left. He could stop the wagon with a brake lever, also on the left. These design features ' set the standard that put today's driver along with the steering wheel, brake and accelerator on the left. . Of course, to watch out for a collision the wagon driver walking on the left would keep his vehicle to the right when approaching another wagon. So today we drive on the right side of the road, the American Standards Association, incorporated, reports in The Magazine . of Standards. American Indians When Columbus arrived in 1492, the total Indian population of the North American continent was about 1,150,000, with 846.000 living within the present boundaries of the United States. 11111 Fee Ache, Pain?
