fjMH TW SLTS BLTTH1T1LLK.(ARK.) COtHtlERyBWg_ MONDAY, JANUARY 9, Scientists Say Transplanting Of Human Glands Now Possible By ALTON I. BLAKEStEE AP Science Eeporter BAE HARBOR, Maine (AP) — A step toward giving humane new glands, kidneys or hearts to replace their own sick or worn ones was announced today. »• may lead to smashing na• tare's roadblock against transplanting living tissues from one person to another. Healthy skin, glands or organs taken from per•ODI who had just died then could be given as spare parts to people Who, needed them. X k discovery of a chemical •at: broke this roadblock in transplanting living cells between mice. lite te a natural chemical nick- Darned E$, meaning "enhancing Mbstance." The research was done by sci- •atiifc of the Roscoe J. Jackson Memorial LabuiaLuiy here, and amowhced by 'the American Caneer Society, supporting the work. The findings may be important to cancer control. Directed Research Dr. George D. Snell directed the research, with collaboration in various phases with Doctors Nathan Kaliss, Avr-ion Mitchison, Andrew Kanctuteeh, Sally Allen and Bhiela Counce. «w great significance is this: Tow body sets up antibodies to destroy any "foreign" materials •utering your system. It creates antibodies against germs, for example, and that is very helpful. But yoa also create antibodies *gato«t living tissues borrowed from someone else. Snell and his associates discovered that living cells from one mouse could be transplanted successfully into another mouse, if: that mouse was first given injec-j tions of Efi. The ES was extracted from cells of the type that were being transplanted. The scientists find that! ES occurs in red Wood cells, in the spleen and other normal tissues, and in tumors. It is manufactured under control of certain genes, or controllers of heredity. Different Kind Apparently every Individual produces a different kino 01 KB. This raises the possibility that ES from one person could be given to another to suppress an antibody reaction that would destroy a gland, kidney or skin transplanted a bit later from the first person to the second. Right now, skin or an entire kidney can be transplanted successfully only between Identical twins, who have identical heredity and makeup. Skin borrowed from- someone else soon dies. It can serve as a temporary covering over a burn until the person can have some of his own skin transplanted from another part of his body to the burned area. His own skin will "take" and grow.

Bmcsn, member of Romanian farm delegation which recently toured the 0nited States'. The vast American surpluses eonMnwlly astounded the Roman- ians, who come from a country where the government is constantly hammering for greater production. Brucan describes a visit to Coon Rapids, Iowa. The Romanians were the gueste of corn expert RosweH Garst, for a continual round of hospitality. 'The farmers' families all tried to show us what fine hosts they could be," Brucan says. 'Then we came to Chicago, that great American city with nearly four million inhabitants. At the headquarters of .the International Harvester Co. we saw agricultural machinery for many kinds of crops. .:. . We visited an International Harvester tractor works where 6,000 workers are employed, mostly Negroes. The plant worfcs one shift and only five days a week." Telling of r. 1,000-mile auto tour through California's rich farm and pasturelands, Brucan relates: "Everywhere we stopped the farmers greeted us with friendship and warmth. They showed us their irrigation methods in detail and explained such ingenious implements as their new cotton ' combine. . . .'• But he quotes some farmers complaining about low prices attributed to overproduction.

'Childbirth Without Fear' Wins Approval of Pope Pius By FRANK BRUTTO VATICAN CITY (IP)— Pope Pius XII has approved a drugless method of reducing the pains of childbirth. The head of the Roman Catholic Church said in an address yesterday the method, commonly known as "childbirth without fear," violates neither Holy Scripture nor morals. He described it as a "psycho-prophylactic" method in which the mother's natural forces alone are called into action. more than 1,000 gynecologists that he had received information on the subject and had been asked to pass judgment on it from the religious and moral viepolnt. The method approved by the Pope calls for intensive instruction of the expectant mother in the prdcess o€ childbirth. Repeated appeals are made to her emotions not to permit feelings of fear, and during labor specially trained personnel assist and remind her of what she has learned. The pontiff said the method al- ready Is used extensively in Russia and China and is finding favor in Western countries, particularly in the United States and France. He explained that the "new method opposes itself" to the fact accepted by men that women must give birth in pain. Advocates of the new method, he continued, assert that normal functions of the human organism when accomplished properly are not accompanied by any painful sensation, and normal childbirth, being a natural function, therefore should be without Outlining the aim and task of painless obstetrics, the Pope said: "By applying scientifically acquired knowledge, it must first disassociate the associations already existing between the normal sensations of contractions of the uterus, and the pain reactions of the cerebral cortex. In this way, negative conditioned reflexes are suppressed. At the same time, new positive reflexes must be. created to reprace the negative 'reflexes." H« added that "from. 85 to 90 per cent of births taking place in STRINGY CREATION - » wasn't spaghetti that inspired this, hat in Home, Italy.
