Sweden's Caroline Institute used such words as "brilliant, ••formidable." and •'enormous" to describe the work of the three •laureates - Dr. Rosalyn Yalow of the Veterans Administration Hospital in New York City: Dr. Roger Guillemin of The SalK ' Institute in San Diego. Calil.. and Dr. Andrew V. Schally oL the Veterans Administration Hospital in New Orleans. La, Dr. Yalow. 5C>. a native of New- York City, was the- second woman 'ever to win the medicine prize. :Gerty Theresa Cori and her husband Carl Ferdinand Cori of the United Slates shared the award in 19-1" with Argentinean Bernardo Alberto Houssay. The $145,000 prize was divided, with one-half going to Dr. Yalow for her development of ••radioimmunoassays of peplide hormones." The In- stitute said she and her coworkers gave a new dimension to diabetes research "in pioneering work of the highest level. , The other half of the award was shared by Dr. Guillemin, -,;t. and Dr. Schally. W. "for their discoveries concerning the peptide hormone production of the brain. Peptide hormones are made up of basic building blocks called amino acids, and are the basic units from which all proteins in the body are constructed. ; The institute said Yalow and her late co-worker, Solomon Berson. paved the way for quantitative analysis of peptide hormones in the hlood. ••In a scries of brilliant, now classical papers between 1956-60, they described the radioimmunolo.gical assay method i RIA i in detail. It was accomplished by a spectacular combination of immunology, isotope research, mathematics and physics." the Institute said. Institute member Prof. Rolf Ulft described Dr. Yalow as "fl woman of extraordinarily sharp intellect. She's won all the scientific honors in ihe.tni-.ed Slates. . -When 1 called her this morning to tell her she had won the prize it was only 7 a.m., in New York and she had already been in the laboratory for a couple of hours, and before that she had done her cooking." said Lufl. "She's a good cook. too. In New York. Dr.Ynlow. a nuclear physicist who spent :w years researching hormones al the Bronx Veterans Administration Hospital, said today the discovery that won her 'the '1977 Nobel Prr/.e for medicine was "almost accidental." Reached at her hospital office. Dr. Yalow said she was stunned by the news and 'predicted it'would take her two davs to "calm down." Dr. Yalow said she had never imagined during her years in the VA lab that she would one day win a Nobel prize for her work with hormones - radioimmunoassays. The discovery of the method that employs radio-active material to delect hormones in blood and body tissues was ••almost an accidental discovery, rising out of something else." she said. The tool, she said, has thrown new insights into the understanding of diabetes and the lack of -growth hormones in short children. It has also been applied to delect the concentration of drugs in the bloodstream. In La Jolla, Calif.. Dr. Guillemin. a long-time researcher into the nature of- pcptide. hormones, said he "did not mind" being awakened at J a.m. to be told of the award.

Inel. - With all the witnesses heard, judiic Michael Kannc said inc jury may get the David Smith murder trial later today. The final witness testified Wednesday in Jasper Circuit Court, clearing the way for closinR arguments and jury deliberation. Or Richard Hahdert, a Lafavcttc psychiatrist, wound up the testimony, saying Smith was sane at the time four brothers were killed with shotguns near Holtondsburfi last Valentine's Day. Smith, is. Wingau-, one 01 four persons charged with murder, in the slaying* pleaded innocent by reason of insanity. Rahdcrl said Smith "was not of unsound mind on Feb. M." The psychiatrist also said intelligence tests showed Smith was a "borderline retardation" case although he would not qualify for special education under" Indiana law. Rahdort said Smith scored low on verbal questions but was normal on practical tests. Rahdert also said Smith had no mental defect that would keep him from distinguishing between right and wrong. ' While much of Rahdert s testimony appeared to be pro-prosecution, he said Smitn had been under the influence of Roger Drollinger. 24, Wavnetown. a point the rietensc tried to emphasize during the Drollinger. the first of the four defendants to stand trial, was convicted on murder charges last month in BlacWord Circuit Court at Hartford City. Balloonists Halt Atlantic Crossing DARTMOUTH. Nova Scotia (UP! i - Two Colorado balloonists said their landing in the stormy Atlantic left them cold, wet and tired, but determined to 117 again next year to become the first to cross the Atlantic in a balloon. Dewcy Reinhard, -17. and Steve "stephenson. 44, of Colorado Springs. Colo., set out from Bar Harbor. Maine Monday to cross the Atlantic. But bad weather forced them to abandon the attempt Wednesday and descend into icy waters. The two men and the gondola of their 85-foot helium-filled "Eagle" were fished out of the water by the Canadian Coast Guard ship Provo Wallis shortly before 6:30 p.m. EDT, about «0 miles off the Nova Scotia coast. -Yes. we're well, although we're very wet and very cold." Kemhard said in a ship-to-shore radio interview. "We are both in pretty good health. We just haven't "had any sleep in the past 24 hours. It turned out to be a lot of work on that flight." The 15lh vain attempt at a record.that has already claimed five lives cost-Reinhard an estimated S250.000. but he said he's not discouraged yc;. 1 think I'll try again next year. he said. Reinhard said neither he nor. Stephenson, an airline pilot acting as navigator, needed a medical checkup. "1 think rest and relaxation for us is more in order now." • Reinhard said he had contacted his family. "They called after they had heard we had landed, and of course they were disappointed that we hadn t made it. But they were glad we were not injured in landing or anything."
