Hugh Jackson of Palo Alto, By FKANK CAHKV (Associated Tress Science; Reporter) '• BALTIMORE. Mny 18. (A'l— A government sclentis says there's reason to question the prevalent theory as to how certain germs .develop resistance to the so-called "wonder drugs." The general theory has been, Dr. Harry Eagle of Ihe U.S. Public Health service told a reporter, thftt resistance Is a kind of built-in characteristic of certain bugs. That is. they have genetic qualities differing them from other bugs of their snme type—and these riKicr- cSj or mutations, can be passed along to their offspring. This theory holds tlial resistance Is built up entirely independent of the drug Itself. But Dr. Eagle, In an interview at the Golden Jubilee meeting of the Society of American Hnctor- iologlsls, said there are some indications that Ihe development of resistance to drugs like penicillin and streptomycin may be Jusl n natter of the bugs adapting tliom- ;elves to (he substance as u niat- .er of cnviromenl. In oilier words, they may Just jeroiue accustomed to it gradually with each generation building up nore and more resistance. Cause la "Open-Question'' The work prompts the conclusion, 3 .said, llmt tbe whole matter of cause of resistance to the wonder-drugs Is all "open question." Dr. Eaule declined comment as .o whether this conclusion hnd any >pariiig on the heredity controversy between Ru.ssia und the rest of the scientific world. The Husslan.s contend—and Ihey mve disciplined scientists who think olhenvi.'ie — Ibat hereditary changes from one generation to another ave a matter of the In Calif., n.s president of Kiwanis International, which now has a total of 3.100 clubs throughout the United states, Canada, Alaska.
