Studebaker looked like a repeater as the most active stock, rising another fraction in very heavy trading. U.S. Smelting gyrated between gains and losses, showing a 2-point advance in late dealings. After an indifferent start, some of the "glamour" stocks began to rise. IBM added 3, Xerox more ban a point, Control Data a point. Westinghouse Electric moved forward nearly a point. American Crystal Sugar spurted more than 3. Gains of about a point each were scored by Du Pont, Merck and Sears, Roebuck. CBS was ahead about 2 at one phase of trading. Eastern Air Lines was down about a point. Prices were mixed on the American Stock Exchange. U.S. government and corporate bond prices were slightly lower.

Krebiozen Backers Rap FDA Actions NEW YORK (AP)-Proponents of,the controversial cancer drug Krebiozen have sent a letter to U.S. health officials attacking a federal analysis of the drug and calling the government report 'smear by press release." The letter, signed by Dr. Stevan Durovic of Chicago, the drug's inventor, was dated Sept. 11 and mailed Thursday to Anthony Celebrezze, secretary of health, edu cation and welfare. Attending a news conference Thursday were Durovic, Dr. An drew C. Ivy, long-time supporter of the drug, and persons who claimed to be Krebiozen patients. In the letter, Durovic said the findings of Food and Drug Admin istratioh scientists on the drug's chemical composition were "apparently presented on a speculative basis, since their studies were clearly incomplete." Last week, the FDA claimed studies showed that Krebiozen is the same as Creatine, a common substance found in the human body. Of this Dr. Durovic in the letter said: "...Instead of presenting their observations to me in the spirit of scientific inquiry, the FDA of .B.HHHMH^ • ficials chose to present their results to the newspapers tor me purpose of a smear by press release. This should not be the way to find scientific truth," he wrote. The letter again detailed a plan to produce Krebiozen with witnesses and to send samples to the FDA and Durovic's own chemists for analysis. The letter also cited what it called discrepancies in this area of chemical analysis: Creatine is not soluble in mineral oil, which Krebiozen contains. It pointed out differences in molecular weights, carbon composition, melting or decomposition points and others. Dr. Ivy said the controversy can be settled only by an Impartial scientific trial of the drug. It cannot be solved, he contended, by committee verdict. The news conference was punc- ttmted by the voices of the asserted Krebiozen patients—a mother and a little girl, a mother and her young son, and several other men and women. Telling newsmen they could not contribute to the Krebiozen Foundation, they said that in many rases they were given the drug free. Ivy said "it may take years to completely isolate (Krebiozen) and know it completely." Ivy said he had long believed there was an anticancer substance that exists in the tissues of normal individuals, and he had been working on its isolation when he met Durovic.
