All EDITIONS Administration halts cutback on medical-research support Washington Post Service WASHINGTON - The Nixon administration reversed its course Friday on one of its major plans to cut medical- research support—its announced aim to "phase out" fellowships and stipends that finance thousands of young scientists jn training. Dr. Charles C.. Edwards, as* sistant secretary for health, told a Senate subcommittee that "we have decided to consider a revision" of phase out plans. Whether this will mean much or little in dollars and numbers of scientists has not been decided, but the change of mind will at least keep alive the programs that have produced a large share of today's biomedical researchers. Minisub designer blames 2 deaths on inadequate undersea rescue plan Associated Press BINGHAMTON, N .Y. The designer of the minisub in which two men died last week off Key West said Friday that the deaths could have been averted with an adequate undersea rescue system. Edwin A. Link, the father of one of the victims, made the comment in a letter to the commandant of the U.S. Coast Guard, Adm. Chester R. 1 Bender. the June 17 and 18 rescue attempts, I cannot speak too highly of the efforts of the Navy officers, divers and personnel who worked thoughout the day and night tq the point of exhaustion to accomplish the impossible with the obsolete and inadequate diving systems at their command," he said.

"The tragedy of the situation is that with an adequate undersea rescue system and equiipment, this loss need never have occurred." The minisub was snared in the wreckage of a World War II destroyer before it was retrieved. Archibald "Jock" Menzies and Robert Meek, in the forward compartment, survived. E. Clayton Link, 31, and Albert Stover, 52, both research scientists, were in the aft section and died. The Smithsonian Institution was sponsoring research by the minisub on marine life. Edwards said that figures should be available early in July. "We have not been insensitive to the views of the scientific community," Edwards added, a day after Dr. Albert Sabin, oral polio-vaccine de* veloper, and other scientists told the Senate health subcommittee that continued support for young researchers is essential. The government supports medical research and its practitioners by three main methods: Grants, contracts, and individual s u p p o r t of young researchers. The Nixon administration emphasis has been to shift from grants, which give researchers more freedom, to contracts to do specific jobs—for example, trying to conquer cancer. . But lack of freedom, scientists, have argued, will mean lack of answers in a kind of work in which the answers often come from unexpected places. And scientists like Dr. Arthur Kornberg, Stanford Nobel Prize winner, have been saying that, "Today lights are going out in laboratories in many, parts of America." In 1970-71, federal fellowships and training grants financed 19,370 researchers and Ph.D. candidates. In fiscal 1972 these programs cost $186 million. ft LADIES' BOOTS BOOT BAEN Largest Display of Boots in the Valley ACME • DURANGO DAN POST * NOCONA Western Boots from A-EE Widths Kids Boots $5 up 7005 N. 58th Ave. t Glendale • 939-6631 > We Repair Anything That Used To Tell Time!
