LLDOG are htndomnro astrated males live er, researcher says Lot Angeles Times Service hormones that been 55.7 years so far in the continuing study, and that of the castrated ones, 69.3 same Ice a man a man are shor- ng his life, researchers at State University of New It's downstate medical • have reported. Ijhey said that castrated males live a good deal longer, on the average, than "intact" males. The life-lengthening effJct of castration is especially great if the operation talfts place before puberty. •flie researchers also found thaj what is true of men is triie of cats. Castrated cats livft longer than intact ones, witji the greatest extension of life- if the castration is done before the animals mature. The data on men comes from a long study of inmates of an institution for the men- taUjp retarded, according to J. IJ. Hamilton, professor of anatomy. The study was part of Dr. Hamilton's research into the re$ons the females of many sp«fcies of mammals live so muth longer than the males. In i humans, the average difference is seven years. It's clear that most of the jor causes of death in hu- fis occur more often or at an earlier age in males than in females," Dr. Hamilton said. Several theories have been advanced to explain this. «i ' One theory says the cause is a deficiency in genes. Men ha^e one X and one Y chro- moiome, but the Y is much smaller than the X and has fewer genes in it. Women, on the? other hand, have two X chromosomes and thus a full complement of genes. Another theory blames the se< hormones, especially the androgens or male sex hormones that are produced by the' v testes. These are beileved to re- lice; the vitality or viability of ;men as compared with wolnen. Dt. Hamilton said the fact thaji castration lengthens life seems to support this second theory. Jitis study included 735 in- tacf males and 297 eunuchs. All* the subjects were mentally ^retarded. Although extra- nepus factors were eliminated or taken into account as muph as possible, Dr. Hamilton^ said the study was not a controlled experiment and wa| not done under laboratory onditions. ones, years. The study also indicated that castration is associated with fewer deaths from infection, and that the death rate among eunuchs is lower than in normal women. This latter fact, according to Dr. Hamilton, does not mean that female hormones produced by the ovaries shorten life. He thinks it may be that even the lives of wom- n are shortened by the small amount of male sex hormones that are secreted by normal ovaries. The study of cats was made at the University of Pennsylvania's school of veterinary medicine. Although it was found that castration made male cats live longer, it also seemed to increase the death rate from leukemia. average length of life of f the intact inmates has $168,000 DONATED LIMA, Peru (UPI) - The Ford Foundation has donated $168,000 to the law facility of the Pontifical Catholic University here.

S. battle deaths in Vietnam have averaged lower since the Nov. 1, 1968, bombing halt than during the preceding months. The U. S. command in Saigon Thursday reported 312 GI deaths in the week ended March 29, pushing the total killed in action in Vietnam since 1961 to just above the 33,629 U. S. deaths in the Korean War. The weekly report also came approximately one year after President Lyndon B. Johnson's March 3, 1968, order partially stopping the bombing of North Vietnam and five months after his complete bomb halt. The Nov. 1 halt paved the way for expanded peace talks at Paris which started Jan. 18. An unofficial check of the 52 weekly casualty reports since the partial bomb halt announcement a year ago shows that in the 31-week period leading up to the full bomb halt U. S. combat deaths averaged 271 a week, compared with 212 a week since then. In the 10 weeks since the CARPETING ROLL ENDS '/2 PRICE M & E FURNITURE 3811 W. litdiM Scfc. M. 272-5115 broadened Paris negotiations began, U. S. deaths have averaged 265 a week, compared with the 158-a-week average during the preceding six-week lull while negotiations were proceeding for the complete bomb halt and arrangements for the expanded Paris sessions. Casualty reports issued by the South Vietnamese show trends similar to those in the U S. accounts. An unofficial averaging from Saigon government figures shows 270 South Vietnamese military deaths a week, in the 31 weeks leading up to the total bomb halt, compared with 245 a week since then. In the 10 weeks since the broadened Paris talks began, South Vietnamese combat deaths have run 290 a week, against 197 the preceding 16 weeks. Enemy deaths for the 31 weeks leading up to the complete bomb halt, as complied unofficially from allied announcements, averaged 2,901 a week, compared with 2,937 a week in the ensuing 21 weeks.
