Mrs. Lucille Runnells, 72, is serving a one sentence for criminal contempt of court arising from a separate 65-count grand jury indictment returned October 1987. The three-judge panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld U.S. District Judge J.

tied to the liquidation of Landbank. Mrs. Runnells, who along with other family members, was found liable for fraud and self-dealing at the expense of Landbank's creditors, challenged the validity of the injunction, claiming that forced testimony about her financial affairs amounted to self-incrimination. "The district court made clear at the time it ordered Runnells imprisoned that she was not being jailed for refusing to testify about her assets, but for failing after numerous opportunities to submit a good-faith plan to pay the contempt judgment Protein kills attacking cells CHICAGO (AP) A new genetically engineered protein kills transplant-attacking cells in mice, suggesting it might someday eliminate the need for risky and costly anti-rejection drugs in transplant patients, researchers said Tuesday. They expect the protein to be introduced for some leukemia patients this fall and for human transplant patients in a year or so.

The leukemia patients suffer from a form of the disease marked by an excess of transplant-attacking blood cells. "This is not only more powerful, but it's far more selective" than conventional anti-rejection treatment, said Dr. Terry Strom, director of clinical immunology at Beth Is- In addition to the service sector, the VEC reported hiring gains in trade, construction, manufacturing and the financial, insurance and real estate sector.

"This therapy only zaps the cells that are active (against the transplanted organ) at that time and doesn't depress the (disease-fighting) immune system across the he said at the annual meeting of the American Society of Transplant Physicians. Dr. Lawrence G. Hunsicker, the society's president, said the findings represent 'terribly important work." "The hope is that you could get someone who needs a kidney transplant and put in whatever one you have Hunsicker said.

"Maybe (tissue) matching at that point wouldn't make a difference." Researchers have been working for nearly a decade on the new protein, a fusion of a portion of the diphtheria toxin, one of the deadliest known toxins, and the natural immune system protein interleukin-2. When the body's immune system is confronted with unfamiliar material such as bacteria or a transplanted organ, it fights back with a group of cells called T-cells. against her," the panel said. She pleaded guilty in February to the single criminal charge, which was separate from the civil contempt, in exchange for testimony against other members of the family. Also named in the same indictment and also serving time are her grandson, Steven Runnells, and her other son, John Runnells.

Vincent Vala drop durJunior High shoulders from class Later indictments named William Runnells and his wife, Marika, in an alleged scheme to defraud creditors of the bankrupt second-mortgage lender. William and Marika Runnells are being sought under federal fugitive warrants. The foreign substances activate a small number of T-cells, which produce interleukin-2 receptors, points on the cell surface to which only interleukin-2 molecules will stick. Activation of these receptors leads to an immunological cascade that activates more harmful cells which then attack the transplanted organ, leading to rejection of the foreign tissue. To prevent this from happening, Strom and Dr.

Jack Murphy, chief of biomolecular medicine at Boston University Medical Center, isolated the part of the diphtheria toxin that binds it to other cells and replaced it with the binding portion of the interleukin-2 molecule. The result was a hybrid protein that seeks out and attaches to only those T-cells harmful to transplanted organs, and kills the T-cells with the toxin. "The idea for this particular magic bullet is to use it right after the transplant," Strom said.

Senator triples mailings WASHINGTON (AP) U.S. Sen. Paul S. Trible Jr. has more than tripled the volume of newsletter mailings and other items sent to voters since announcing last fall that he would not seek re-election, a newspaper said Tuesday.

Trible, sent about 3.4 million pieces of mail to voters between Oct. 1 and March 31, according to a semi-annual report released by the secretary of the Senate and cited by The Richmond News Leader. The recent volume was sharply higher than the roughly 1 million items Trible mailed between April and September last year, the newspaper said. The cost of the mailings jumped from more than $162,000 to almost $430,000. "I think the voters ought to be outraged that tax dollars, used to support a federal officeholder, are being used to wage a campaign for a state office," said Dennis Peterson, manager of former Attorney General J.

Marshall Coleman's effort to win the Republican nomination for governor in 1989. Trible is considered a possible rival of Coleman for the nomination but has not said whether he will seek the office. "It's unfortunate," Peterson said of the mailings. "It's unfair. And it's wrong." Jim Weber, who heads 8th District Rep.

Stanford E. Parris' reelection campaign, also criticized Trible's mailings and called them blatant political use of the office." Parris also plans to seek the Republican nomination for governor. "It's a little bit of a sham to the taxpayers," Weber said. "It's certainly bending the rules, and pushing to the limits what you can, and possibly honorably should, do." Trible, in a statement relayed by an aide, defended his use of the mailings. "My mailings include letters to constituents, newsletters and town meeting announcements.

I work in April, March and April 1987: Lynchburg, 4.1 percent, 4.8 percent and 4.2 percent; NorfolkVirginia Beach-Newport News, 4 percent, 4.2 percent and 4.7 percent; northern Virginia, 1.6 percent, 1.7 percent and 2 percent; Roanoke, 3.4 percent, 3.9 percent and 3.8 percent.
