WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 1963 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE ELEVEN World Silver Prices Hit Treasury Level B.v SAM DAWSON AP Business News Analyst NEW YORK (AP)—The price of silver on the open market In New York has risen to the official U.S. Treasury level of $1.293 an ounce. There is less than an ounce of that metal in the silver dollar. And until now the dollar could buy more than could the metal in it If meted down, The cost of getting the silver into a form fabricators can use makes it still unprofitable to melt down sllycr dollars. Strong world demand for silver has forced the price up in recent months. In London Monday, the price rose to a new high of $1. an ounce. The cost of getting the silver from New York to London makes il unlikely that any metal In the U.S. market will be exported just now. And industrial demand hire is strong. Silver dealers say that Ihe large supply held by the U.S. Treasury, some 1.7 billion ounces, should keep the market price from going appreciably higher. Part of the U.S. official hoard is used as backing for $1 bills, although this will gradually be freed. Part of it is being used by U.S. mints to turn out much- needed silver coins, of which there is a shortage due to an expanding economy and increased use of vending machines and turnstiles. But the supply that American silver users could tap at the new high price is so large that deal- ors are betting that a price ceiling has been reached here, at least for a time. Foreign buyers, however, are so anxious to get more of the metal that Handy & Harman. New York ffbricator and refiner, reports thai some are paying premiums over the $1.293 price reached here Monday. World consumption has been running well above mine output. Demand for silver coins has increased in many other nations also. Prosperity in this and other lands has boosted sales of household and other objects made of silver. But above all, the big upward push has come from industry, especially electronics and makers of space age devices.

There has to be because there is more than one kind of virus. A University of Illinois microbiologist, Dr. Sol Spiegelman, said today he has is9lated a key chemi cal which in a sense tells how one kind of virus operates. All cells have at their heart desoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) — the genetic library from which all of the cell's characteristics are determined. Scientists have long known thai some viruses arc also made up of DNA—and they have shown that such a virus can substitute its messages for the cells' genetic message. But there arc other viruses made up of a different kind of nucleic acid — ibonucleic acid (RNA). Scientists also know that the DNA in a cell transmitted its messages via a sort of messenger made up of RNA. But is has always been a question as to how the RNA viruses got their messages through to the DNA genes of a cell. They just didn't speak the same language. But Spiegelman has found that the RNA viruses don't bother with the cells' basic genetic material DNA. Instead, the RNA viruses pose as the RNA messengers, he suggested in a paper presented to a meeting of the American Chemical Society. In this way, they can operate within the cell, with the cell's energy and machinery to make more virus material—without ever consulting the "boss" DNA. The clue to this was the isolation of an enzyme—a chemical that acts as a middle-man in vari : ous chemical transactions. The enzyme is not native to the cell —and so it had to be a product of the RNA virus that infected the ceil.
