(UPI) Earth plants treated with moon soil grow better and live longer than ordinary plants, according to tests conducted by Vernon Scholes, a biology professor at the University of South Alabama. "We were looking for plant pathogens," Scholes said Monday, referring to elements that might be harmful to plant life, "but then we noticed that for some reason the plants that had been treated with lunar material grew better and lived linger than those without it." Scholes carried out the tests for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, using moon soil brought back by astronauts. He said the experiments involved single cells and entire plants. He said the moon dirt apparently stimulates the chlorophyll in the plants. Fitch said that he is now in a state of "hopeful expectancy" after his recent meeting with Housing and Urban Development officials, Chicago, where he delivered Phase H of the city's application for federal funds for a new recreation and cultural center. He said that a final decision is expected within 30 days. Aldermen voted to buy 200 pounds of pipe for $1,410 for a new water line to the Don White Trailer Court.
