Finances Unique Israel Medical Center WASHINGTON, Science <*>rv tee — A new $25.0(10.000 ultramodern medical renter, entirely U.S. financed «nd designed, will be officially opened in suburban i Jerusalem on AUK " The facility, the only <>nr of its kind in the Middle Kast. is the gift of Hadassah, the Wo -j men's Zionist Organization of! America. Inc. !t will be known! as the Hadassflh-Hebrew Univer-j sity Medical Center. The design j of the Center is the work of Jo-j seph Neufeld, New York archi-j tecl. The opening and dedication of the Center in Israel will be observed here by officials of the U., S. Department of Health. Kduca-j tion and Welfare and the Em-i bassy of Israel at a special mert-! ing sponsoi-ed by Washington representatives of Hadassah. Speakers will include HEW Undersecretary Bertha S. Adkins. The unique ftOO-bed hospital of the Center may be the forerunner of hospitals of the future both here and abroad. Among its unusual features is the concentration of all nursing and medical care at the center of each semi-circular floor. This gives the medical and nursing staff easy and more complete observation of patients. ' Hospital rooms can be converted from single to double to triple accommodations by means of easily maneuverable panels on the outside of the architectural circle. The hospital also will|i serve as a teaching institution {*' with service laboratories. jl The center comprises 17 struc-| f tures, making it the largest com-|j> plex of buildings in Israel. Be-|r sides (lie hospital, there is a|' separate mother and child paj vilion for maternity and infant care; an outpatient department that can handle more than 200,000 patient visits annually; the Hebrew - University Hadassah Medical School, Israel's only medical school, founded in 1949 « y the Hebrew University and a d a s s a h: and the Henrietta Szold School of Nursing and Residence. In keeping with Hadassah policy, medical treatment will available to Arab, Christian and Jew alike. Most of the modern equipment for treatment and research, including the latest type model of the cobalt bomb for cancer research and therapy, was purchased in the U.S. THE ONE! THE ONLY!

'• Over 50% more capacity, 2 wash temperatures, fully automatic dependability! No. 680 WASHINGTON — (By Science Service)—Poisons isolated from 1 clams and from the puffer fish* have been found to be several; times more toxic that the most powerful nerve gases known. Small amounts of these animal poisons can temporarily block nervous transmission and! conduction, but how they do it is .still a puzzle. A research team at Columbua University found that the equivalent of one drop in a rain barrel (a concentration of .0001 microgram por milliliter) ol either poison would block electrical activity in tlw frog sciatic nerve fiber within 3D seconds. Different concentrations of each poison were required to effect blockage under certain conditions in experiments with electric eels. Bui each poison was capable ol shutting off both direct and indirect stimulation. The presence of curare, a drug that paralyzes muscles by jamming the transfer of an impulse from nerve to muscle, had no effect on the amount of clam or puffer-tish poison required to block response to direct stimulation. Several possible explanations:*:.. have been proposed for the action of these Bisons, but all to water HOT 40% longer!

Dr. B. R. iBurmester of the U. S. Department of Agriculture'* Regional Poultry Laboratory, East Lansing. Mich., has found. I Until now Rous sarcoma, which has been used in research !for 50 .VPHI-S. was thought to be non-contaKiouR. Studies to date suggest that similar vlrus- canspd cancers may also prove i contagious. The new find not only lends weight to tho belief of marjy i scientists that viruses >;au«e ;some forms of animal and hu- ' man cancers. but also may aid in fighting these diseases. The experiments that led to proof of the Rous sarcoma 'vims' contagious nature gave •clear-rut results. Dr. Burmester inoculated a number of ; chickens with the virus, either under-the-skin injection or intravenous injection, placed these birds in the same pen with healthy chicks and raised them to maturity. I In one test, 35 of 45 healthy birds raised in direct contact with birds inoculated subcutan- t'ously died of Rous sarcoma, of 59 chickens reared in direct contact with 118 birds inoculated intravenously with a low dose of the virus, six developed ; tumors and died. ; Viruses taken from the turn- jors of contact-infected birds 'was found to be the same as the virus used by inoculation. The concentration of virus in tumors from contact - infected birds was directly proportional to the amount used to inoculate the chickens to which the contact-infected birds were ex- iposed. Under a microscope tumors ifrom chickens infected artificially or by contact were the 'same. ; In another experiment healthy chickens were put in the same cubicles with virus-inoculated chickens, but were separated by a wire-mesh screen. None oi the healthy birds died with tumors. Direct contact is thus far superior to indirect contact for transmitting the virus. How the virus is transferred from bird to bird is still unknown, but a few facts have been established. Chickens made to breathe high virus doses in aerosol form did not develop tumors, but i more than half developed tumors when the virus was artificially instilled in the nasal passages. No tumors resulted when virus was placed under the chicken's tongue or when it was applied to a nonfeathered area of Intact skin. But 80% developed tumors when the virus was rubbed into a skin scratch or orr an area where immature feathers had been extracted. It has also been established that the virus can enter a bird's body through a feather follicle and cause local as well as internal tumors. Predict Man Will Flv •• Like Bird LONDON, Science Service — Mmi may some day be able to fly by flapping a set of artificial wings, two Chilean scientists assert. Drs. E. Guerre and B. Gunther of the University of Chile, Valparaiso, say it can be done simply by using the mechanical, biological, eleclrodynamic and aerodynamic similarities of birds i and flyng insects as a basis for calculation. A 154-pound man equipped with 66 pounds of flight accessories would need wings about 10 feet long with a flight surface of 6U square feet. To maintain a speed ui 45 to TiU miles per hour, he should flap his wings ;if> time?, a minute or a lit- lie luster than once rver> twu seconds. The up-and-duxvn speed ot the winu lip should be If) lu 20 miles per hour or about 1U feet per second. The force of a single \vinu bent would be 45 pounds The man would be working about us hard as if tu> walked up SU Nti'ps a minute. Under the n.uhi conditions, a man would be able tu keep up this pace for from me lo 30 minutes. Since birds get along so well with a different density than that of man, the man-powered flying apparatus should be constructed to approximate t K e density of birds,, the scientist* report in Nature. Birds sense just how well the flight is going by pressures on the wiiitfs us well us the body. The scientists suggest something be (kmi' t o give a flying man the same advantage. Drs. (}uerra and Ciunlhet conclude that "munpowertid flight in possible and should be tested experimental^, because new hypothesis and materials (both "totals and plastics i ait: available which can be used to solve. KJIIW; of the engineering problem* involved."
