Mi Is Jailed For Running Down Mother (AP)— Murder charges weWi prepared today against Houston Union To Be Cited for Discrimination WASHINGTON (AP) - A labor union is about to be charged for the first time in the 27-year history of the National Labor Relations Act with racial discrimination hi refusing to process a Negro worker's grievance. Stuart Rothman, general coun sel of the National Labor Rela tions Board, announced today he has authorized the Houston, Tex., NLRB office to issue a formal complaint based on charges brought by a Negro worker employed at the Hughes Tool Co., Houston. Rothman said the complaint will be lodged against Local 1, Independent Metal Workfers Union, at unaffiliated union. He said Loca' 1 is made up of white employes while Local 2 is composed of Negro employes. The two locals are the joint bargaining agent for Hughes Tool Co. employes. The basis of the complaint Rothman said, is that Local 1 has refused to process a grievance ir behalf of Ivory M. Davis, a meta handler employed by Hughes since 1942 and treasurer of Loca' No. 2. Davis complained the company refused to consider his application for the company apprenticeship program to train for the better paying job of machinist and tool maker. Davis charges that Loca 1 has refused to represent him. Crowley Man Is Arrested For Theft GrMd, Prairie man accused of running* down his mother with a car.

Deputy Sheriff Harvey B o y d with four other deputies raided Manuel's place about 12:45 a.m. Sunday, suspecting that something was going on because of a large number of cars parked to the rear of the Allamond, according to Chief Deputy Sam C.

Ohio Fugitive Being Held Here To Be Returned Louis Lee Gearhart, who is being held in the Lake Charles city jail on a charge of auto (heft, will be released to authorities of Ohio to face charges there of forgery and parole violation. Chief of city detectives Ed Zail- skas said today he received an extradition warrant from Governor Jimmie Davis requesting the release and transfer of Gearhart. Gearhart was picked up here about a month ago on a charge of vagrancy and placed in the city jail. He was found sleeping in a car svhich was discovered later to be stolen from Houston, Texas. He wns wearing only a pair of shorts and had no other clothes in his possession.

Dr. Warwick's comments were substantiated by Dr. James A. Van Allen, Who in 1958 discovered the principal radiation belt encircling the earth. The Colorado scientist said the effect of the Pacific high-altitude test blast last month was to greatly Intensify the so-called Van Allen radiation ring. The new ring, he said, consists of high-energy H-bomb electrons, invisible atomic particles, which follow the path of the earth's mag- is needed before the effects on Project Mercury flights can b« determined. "I don't want to prejudge the data," Dr. Van Allen said, "but the radiation is a matter of concern and it is conceivable that Mercury flights might have to be delayed." Van Allen said the situation conceivably could lead also to delay in similar flights by Russians. Variations of the Van Allen belt's radiation have been studied for a year with the help of a satellite called Injun, launched for scientific purposes on June 29, 1961. Dr. Van Allen said previous Soviet nuclear blasts had not affect* ed the radiation belt. Viruses Created Out of Chemicals CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) -A Utah scientist has succeeded in making infectious viruses out of inert chemicals for the first time, it was reported here today. Docs this mean that life has been formed in a test tube? "If viruses are considered to be living objects, then the answer is yes," said Dr. George W. Cpch- ran, who described his experiments at a scienticic meeting here. However, he said the most significant result was that by producing viruses apart from a'living cell, the virus-formation process could be studied more closely in eeking counter-weapons. "It permits for the first time an understanding of the biochem- stry of the virus-forming process tself," he said in an interview. 'We can now examine it in great letail, and very accurately, and ihould be able to select chemi- •als to interrupt it." Viruses are tiny agents which cause disease in men, plants and animals. In men, they cause :olds, polio, measles, chickenpox, rellow fever, sleeping sickness, nd various other diseases. There have been indications hey may cause some forms of cancer. They cause world . economic losses estimated at a billion dollars annually. They are smaller than bacteria, so small they can be seen only vith an electron microscope magnifying 10,000 to 200,000 times. They exist on an obscure border' ine between living and nonliving matter, possibly a link between them. It was noted, in Dr. Cochran's experiments, that the building of .he virus structure was not entirely man-directed. The code that guided the complex combination of chemicals to brm the viruses was derived 'rom a molecule with no living properties, taken from an infected •)lant. It was the command mechanism or pattern that organized Jie raw chemicals introduced .he researchers into the threadlike viruses. "It zippered them together like the zipper on a valise," he said. Dr. Cochran, a plant patholigist at Utah State University, heads a research team there, supported partially by grants from the National Institutes of Health and the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission. "Viruses have never been produced before outside of a living cell," he said, noting that viruses often have been reproduced in test tubes by adding them to living cells, as in nature. However, he said, the virus- forming operation was impossible to study clearly under such conditions, since it was mixed up with thousands of other biochemical reactions going on in the cell. Separating the virus-production process "from the great biochemical complexity of living cells," he said, "places it in a more simple environment" for investigating it and finding means to control it. "Our work should open entirely new vistas in virology and medicine bringing us ever closer to an understanding of the nature of life itself," he said. His technical report was for a meeting of the American Phyto- pathological Society at Oregon State University as part of sessions of the American Institute o£ Biological Sciences. In-producing viruses outside live cells, Cochran's team used four chemicals—triphosphates of adenosine, guanosine, cytidine and uri- dine—elements generally assumed before to make up viruses. Finding the key to put them together in the exact way to form viruses was the hurdle. Essentially the virus is a complex chain of chemicals linked so as to form a particular nucleic acid that makes up the virus, Cochran said. With one molecule mechanism, about 100 billion new virus units could be turned out in less than 30 minutes, he said. In some cases the chemicals were made radioactive so the resulting radioactive viruses could be observed more easily. Roaches? Economical monthly service contract available.
