Researchers Attack Prostate Troubles MORGANTOWN, W. Va. - The only medically certain thing about the prostate {land is that it can cause men a lot of trouble. "More than half of the men over age 50 will suffer from some form of prostatic disease -- and the incidence of cancer of the prostate is very high," observed John A. Thomas of West Virginia University's Department of Pharmacology. It is estimated that about 18,000 men in the U. S. die annually from prostate cancer and that some 30,000 new cases are diagnosed each year. Depending on age, for example men between 55 and 74, only cancer of the lungs and cancer of the bowel are more fatal. Females don't have prostate elanHs Dr. Thomas and a cancer research team at WVU are working on prostate gland physiology and pathology under a grant from the National Cancer Institute. A * * * AT WVU the study of tissues and cells, such as those involved in prostate cancer. has been advanced by the acquisition of a new Univar microscope. "As far as we know, this is the only Uni- var microscope at a university medical center in the country," according to Leland M. Bowerman, WVU's biomedical photographer. "The added feature of the Univar is that live cells can be magnified up to 2,500 times and different modes of light microscopy can be used quicker. This gives the researcher a wider choice of techniques," he explained. The microscope has three cameras which can be interchanged in seconds and the Univar can take color or black-and- white pictures, closed circuit television, and motion pictures.

Thomas Irish Protestants Charge Secret Peace Deals Made BELFAST, Northern Ireland (AP)Militant Protestants charged Saturday the British government has made secret peace deals with Irish Roman Catholics and they demanded guns to "root out the terrorists before another 1,000 people die." Thomas Passmore, leader of the Protestant Orange Order, demanded the formation of a "home guard" armed by London and the proposal was cheered by thousands celebrating the 285th anniversary of the battle of the Boyne. That battle in 1690, when Protestants under King William II of Orange defeated the Catholic army of James II, is celebrated every year as a mark of Protestant domination in the province. More than 100,000 Protestants, wearing traditional black derbies, colorful sashes and wielding rolled umbrellas, marched in 18 separate parades around the province behind high-strutting bands and the giant drums that symbolize protestantism. Hemingway Papers Revealing (Continued from Page IE) OTHER SUGGESTIONS for "A Farewell to Arms" came from F. Scott Fitzgerald. The chronicler of the Jazz Age prefaced his remarks with, "Our poor old friendship probably won't survive this, but there you a r e . . . better me than some nobody in the literary review that doesn't care about you." The criticism ended with: "A beautiful book it is!" The friendship was to endure for another decade. The collection of 12 as yet unpublished letters and telegrams from Fitzgerald cover the period from 1926 through 1937, beginning with Fitzgerald's account of his 30th birthday and how he "got tight for a week." He called Hemingway "Ernest of little faith" and congratulated him on the sale at last of his story, "The Killers." The handwriten letter is full of gossip about mutual friends and ends with a reminder to Hemingway not to be afraid to ask for money, if he needs any. In another letter written in 1927 Fitzger- ald again says, "I hate to think of you hard up." He tells Hemingway that Atlantic magazine might offer $200 for a story. Hemingway's letters to Fitzgerald during this period are not in the collection. They are kept by Hemingway's widow. In a letter postmarked June 1,1934, Fitzgerald tells Hemingway, "Save for a few of the dead or dying old men, you are the only man writing fiction in America that I look up to very much." Fitzgerald confesses to his friend that there are some of his works that he reads and re-reads, but that he had stopped himself from doing that nearly a year and a half earlier for fear Hemingway's style and rhythm would creep into his own. In a rockier moment in the friendship Fitzgerald tells Hemingway to "please lay off me in print- If I choose to write de pro- fundis sometimes it doesn't mean I want friends praying aloud over my corpse." He asks that if Hemingway ever includes the article in a book, to cut out his name. Despite the complaint, Fitzgerald signed the letter as he signed nearly all in the collection, "Ever your friend." THE BIGGEST march was in Belfast, where police estimated 25,000 marched through the streets in an eight-mile parade. Security was tight to prevent clashes with Catholics. Soldiers and police lined the streets and manned rooftops. Helicopters hovered overhead. Authorities also erected high barriers at flashpoints where the processions passed Catholic areas. Passmore charged London no longer seeks to defeat the mainly Roman Catholic Irish Republican Army, battling to unite Protestant-dominated Ulster with the neighboring Irish Republic, which is pre- , dominantly Catholic. "We have watched with horror while government officials made secret deals with men who were responsible for the deaths of hundreds of innocent civilians and members of our security forces," he declared. London, he claimed, how seeks the "easy way out" of the six-year-old Ulster crisis. But he claimed there will be no peace in the province until the IRA is smashed. Well-informed sources have repeatedly charged that the British secretary for Northern Ireland, Merlyn Rees, secretly agreed to withdraw British troops from Ulster in return for an IRA cease-fire declared Feb. 10. Rees has denied this. IRA bombings in Londonderry this week heightened Protestant anger, and Rees' release of more than 300 IRA suspects from jail is six months has further incensed them. "If the government is not prepared to instruct the security forces to root out the terrorists," Passmore declared, "let them give Ulstermen the equipment. . . and we'll do the job ourselves." Per Gallon (ContiBoed From Page 2E) Bitterly fought over between proconsu- mer committee members and other Democrats like Rep. John Dingell, who want to weaken the bill in the oil industry's favor to avoid a presidential veto, H.R. 7014 represents probably the best provisions likely to get through to law in this era of the imperial presidency. " , . » LED BY Rep. Bob Eckhardt, Rep. John Moss, anckRep. Andrew Maguire, H.R. 7014 holds oil prices far below the Ford plan but still at a level amply sufficient to encourage exploration and production. It provides for mandatory automobile fuel economy standards, industrial fuel efficiency goals and several other ways to reduce inflationary energy waste. It also sets up a petroleum reserve and provides the General Accounting Office with subpoena powers to get the facts about reserves, costs and other situations from the hidden recesses of the oil industry. . . The congressional votes on H.R. 7014 will be coming up later this month and early August. If you're interested in more information, write to your representative and ask for a copy of the House Commerce Committee report on H.R. 7014. Clear Eyes (Continued From Page 2E) lished book, "The Personal Nixon: Staying on the Summit", that Watergate would be remembered as "the broadest but the thinnest scandal in American history." The interview was released July 16 at San Clemente. Nixon took a forgiving attitude toward his enemies. As for this column, we wrote (July 6, 1974), "Various events are finally approaching conjunction." We were anxious -- the strain shows. "What in God's name;" we asked, "is the public thinking? We think the public is out there waiting, far ahead of Congress. It has lost track of 'details; it has made up its mind; somehow or other we should get another president." For 'a year America has tried to forget Watergate. Now, maybe we can look back at it with clearer eyes.
