Researchers Study New Virus Controls GALVESTON (AP) - A doctor at hte University o£ Texas Medical Branch here is seking to starve whole colonies to death, and with some success. The objects of this assault on good health are the viruses. Dr. Morris Pollard of the branch describes them to laymen as a midget of the microbe family. Viruses are responsible for a whole group of diseases; ranging from colds to cancer. "If we can understand the life of a virus, we will be able to understand life itself. It could mean a major break in discovering one of the causes of cancer," Pollard says. He explained two developments in virus research at th| Medical Branch. Working with him on the project are Dr. Yoh Tanami, Full- parole has returned Karry E. i urighi FeuOw Itoui Siunahu ui Evans to the society which knew versity, Japan, and Dr. T. J.

Trachoma cases causes an inflamation of the eyes, clouding the cornea, thus interfering with vision. "With this new antibiotic, we are planning to run field tests in Far Eastern countries where trachoma is wide spread," Said Dr. Pollard.

The next oldest former First Lady maintains a schedule that would exhaust a woman half her age. At 76, Eleanor Roosevelt is still a dynamo of activity. She travels extensively, makes innumerable speeches, writes a monthly magazine feature, lectures on international relations, appears on radio and television, answers a steady stream of mail with meticulous care and works hard for her favorite causes, particularly the American Association for the United Nations and the Democratic party.

Occasionally they come to New York to visit their daughter Margaret, her husband Clifton Daniel, and their two young sons.

A federal judge has issued a temporary injunction which also bars Phillips from trying to place representatives on Union's board of directors and from voting shares it now owns. The federal government has an antitrust suit pending against Phillips in connection with its acquisition of Union stock.

The developments reported by the scientists are: 1. A method by which they can observe how the virus agent feds itself. 2. Treatment of psitacosis (parrot fever) and trachoma (an eye disease) viruses with the aid of a new antibiotic. In discussing the broad aspects of this research, Dr. Pollard said: "There is no known, proven, treatment of virus disease. Developing a proven treatment is the goal of our research." Dr. Pollard explains: Virus agents can cause a wide variety of disease from mild colds to severe influenza, from a benign wart to cancer. Viruses constitute a major problem in the control of infectious diseases in children. A virus is a parasite on the cells — the living tissue in the body. The virus attaches itself to a cell and bores in. As it feds on the cell the virus -grows, and the cell may be completely destroyed. "By studying the eating habits of the virus, we can learn how to starve it to death," he said. "By the development of a special technique in studying virus eating habits We can learn which antibiotic or drug • interferes with the growth of the virus." Medical Branch researchers grew in a test tube the virus psittacosis on tissue cells obtained from the lining of bone joints. Then, by a special staining process, the gonving virus was put on slides. With the aid of an ultraviolet microscope, they were able to detect, by color, the chemical reaction in the cells — that is, how the virus was eating. So far, said Dr. PoUard, the medical team has applied its project to birds with psittacosis infection and cured them. This is important, he said, because psittacosis is contagious to humans. They achieved the cure by injecting an antibiotic so new that it doesn't have a name, he said. "With this antibiotic, we were able to interfere with the feding process of the virus," said Dr. Pollard. They have also applied their method to the trachoma virus.
