The court said this week that the drug, which has been shown to produce cancer in laboratory animals, can be marketed again until the FD.A. holds the required hearings or until the secretary of health, education and welfare “concludes that such marketing constitutes an im-rn i n e n t hazard to public health.”  “Study It”  A ll.E W. spokesman said last night that the agency's | lawyers “will have to study it and figure out the next step.” The ruling Thursday came in two separate opinions filed by different three-judge appeals panels. Both opinions were written by Judge Harold Leventhal.  The first came in law suits filed by Hess & Clark, a division of Rhodia, Inc., and Vineland Laboratories, Inc manufacturers of DES pellets which were banned bv the F.D A. in April. 1973.  The second involved law suits brought by Chemetron Corp., Dawe's Laboratories, Inc., and Hess and Clark, all of whom manufacture DES feed premixes that were banned in August. 1972.  Both forms of DES are used to make animals, mainly cattle and sheep, gain weight more quickly. The animals either ate the food premixes or had the pellets implanted in their ears.  Fred C. Chapman  Fred C. Chapman, 76, of 1909 Grande avenue SE, dic'd Friday evening in a Cedar Rapids hospital after a brief illness.
