18 GREELEY TRIBUNE TUM., .Tune 2, 1970 Scientists Take First Step Toward Artificial Human Cell Tlw WMfciMjtwt Post WASHINGTON - A first step ow»rd «n artificial human cell las been taken by two New York University scientists. It is the creation of an artificial lysosome -- a body whose main job is to destroy unwanted or invading agents like bacteria or viruses. Drs. Gerald Weissman and Grazia Sessa have thus built :he first man-made organelle, or unit of a cell. This is an achievement in large scale that is akin to making artificial DNA or artificial enzymes on a more minute, molecular scale. Like those achievements, the new one should lead both to new understanding and still more syntheses. Already, the NYU scientists and others are trying to make artificial mitrochondria (the units which do a cell's breathing by carrying an oxygen) anc artificial red blood corpuscles. Crrating artificial red blooi corpuscles could mean making artificial blood for human transfusions.

The cell is the basic unit of all living matter. Only a few generations ago it was Ihoughl of as mostly an enclosed sac ol protoplasm or living jelly, with only a few finer structures outside the cell nucleus. Today, as a result of electron microscopy, biologists know the cell is no empty blob but a densely occupied factory, with many jobs. structures doing many Tuesday, Junt 1 4:00-KLZ: Andy Griffith Sh'n KOA: Major Adams KWGN: Blinky 4:30--KRMA: Gene's Junction KLZ: Corner Pyle KWGN: Batman 4:45--KRMA: Friendly Giant 1:00--KLZ: News KOA: Can You Top Thil KBTV: News KWGN: Flintstones KRMA: Misterogers 4:30--KOA: News KBTV: Pepper's Newi KLZ: Ch. 7 News KWGN: McHale's Navy KRMA: Sesame Street 6:00--KBTV: Dick Van Dyke KOA: Huntley-Brinkley KWGN: Gilligan's Island 6-.30-KLZ: Oral Roberts Spl.

The FBI has been investigating the violent confrontation at Kent State on May 4 between the National Guard and students that left four students dead and 10 wounded. Kent chapters of both the; American Civil Liberties Union and the American Association of University Professors sent telegrams of protest to Sens. William B. Saxbe (R- Ohio), Stephen M. Young (D-Ohio) and Rep. J. William Stanton (R- Ohio). Stanton whose district includes Kent, said Monday he had referred the ACLU telegram to FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover more than a week ago, but had received no reply. FBI spokesman Tom Bishop said Hoover would have no public comment on the complaint but that Stanton "will be getting about any faculty member who advocated getting rid of the jigs on campus?" He said he asked the agent to explain and IB replied, "Well, the forces of law and order." Harris Dante, chairman of the Faculty Senate, said that body also had expressed concern about the FBI's actions, but had taken no formal action. Dante said he knew of 10 students in one class being questioned as to whether their instructor was radical and added, it's rather silly. We have a conservative faculty, we don'l lave any revolutionaries." .a written reply." Bishop said to digest the i n - j n e did not know when Hoover would reply. Extensive Concern Louis K.

This was at least one part of the first step toward an artificial cell. "You couldn't have an artificial cell without such membranes," Dr. \Veissnian reports. "You might say it takes jacks or better to open -- these are jacks." His next step was to get "something interesting" inside the membranes. This took five years of work in a laboratory at New York City's Bellevue Hospital. The National Institute of Arthritis and Metabolic Diseases financed the project. Ignoring all the intricate chemical and physical manipulations, he explained: "First we picked an enzyme -- lyso/.yme.
