PAGE EIGHT BLYTHEVILLE, (ARK.) COURIER THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 27.. 1941 Chow Foi Uncle Sam's Soldiers Rates-Right Up With What They Got At Home-Maybe Better Used In Experiments With "Wonder Drug" Originally A Gout Remedy } PITTSBURGH (UP) — Among tenants on the 37th floor of the University of Pittsburgh's Cathedral of Learning, is a colony of Leghorn chickens, subjects of a scientific experiment with ft "wonder drug:" used previously only as a remedy for the gout, Actually the hens and the roost- res were martyrs to science before they were hatched in their skyscraper quarters. Dr. Edna Higbee, lecturer in biology at the University, while they were still eggs, needled them with the '•wonder- drug"—colchicine, a vegetable alkaloid. The results already have attracted attention in scientific circles. When previous attempts to inject, animals with colchicine were j made, the subjects of the tests died. The drug's effectiveness was demonstrated recently, however, by plant, injections which speeded up evolutionary changes in the plants and produced giant, specimens. Following unsuccessful experiments with salamanders, Dr. Higbee tried the needling process with chicken eggs, about two years ago. She injected small amounts of the drug in highly diluted form into eggs at various stages of incubation—from 72 hours to 13 days. Some. of the eggs hatched, and produced fowls with unusually well proportioned features. Dr. Higbee reported. As she cf scientists in cently: "The combs and wattles of males and females of the group reached twice normal size at the age of seven months. to visit his parents while their home Is being rebuilt.
