S AUStlN (Minn.) HERALD Saturday, Jan. 10, 1959 9-Man Committee to Investigate Riots BRUSSELS, Belgium (AP)-The Belgian Parliament is sending a nine-man committee to Leopoldville, capital of the Belgian Congo, to investigate the three-day riot which left 42 dead and 257 injured.

A lot of scientists will tell you that basic research offers n sure route to cancer control — the only sure one. And if there is to be a sudden j break-through in cancer, basic re- i search is very likely to supply it. The break-through could come from any of a thousand different kinds of studies - the chemistry of maggots, the hormones of fish, I the mating habits of bacteria, the viruses of plants, the composition of mouse milk, the genes in a rat cell, the arrangement of atoms in a molecule of smog. A chnnce observation of the prepared mind can turn mnny a routine academic study into a matter of great clinical consequence. Here are some examples of basic research: curs to him that this might be of clinical value.

Scientists have developed many ways of vaccinating animals against specific cancers. The question is: Can man be vaccinated against the hundreds of kinds of cancer which might befall him? , . Technique Becomes Useful A New York scientist wonders whether tumors shed cells. He takes a sample of the vaginal fluid of a woman w'ith cattcer of the uterus and examines it under : the microscope. He finds many (cancer cells in the fluidf. Many years of investigation show that very small and early cancers shed trace of the chemical. A few year? later he leams that it binds with a [certain liver protein and is excreted. Maybe cancer is due to the loss of this protein. Prevents Liver Cancer A Seattle scientist uses two chemicals on the same rat — one which causes liver cancer and one which causes skin cancer. The one which causes skin cancer makes the liver manufacture proteins in large quantities. This prevents liver cancer. An Illinois scientist finds that certain viruses are well behaved. Instead of destroying the bacterium they invade, the viruses become part of the genes and divide only when the cell divides. As part of the genes, they are beyond attack by antibodies.. This could explain how viruses might cause human cancers and yet never be detected. i Might Be a Vaccine ! The scientist finds that Virus- i infected bacteria have a peculiar {spot on their skin. It is antigenic —that is, antibodies will attack this spot and destroy all cells with this odd marking. Does the skin of cancer cells also have a dis- jtinctive spot? If so, and if the [chemicals forming it can be iso- llated and purified, they might be j used as a vaccine for the prevention and treatment of cancer. No drug cures the common cold or any virus-caused disease — only Nature can do that. A Wisconsin scientist, studying the food requirements of various plants, finds that a certain chemical kills viruses inside plant cells without killing the cells. The first anti-virus drug ever found cures plants of viruses. Paramount Pictures Disposes of Broadcasting Firm Stock Sale of Paramount Pictures Corp. stock in Metropolitan Broadcasting Corp. was announced this week. The deal Involved 335,200 shares.
