Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - December 28, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Cedar Rapids Gazelle: Sal.. Dec. 1974 New Poison Developed To Kill Strain of Super Rats MADISON, WIs. A University of Wisconsin scion- list says he has developed a compound to kill "super rats" Immune to normally deadly pesticides. John Suttle, a professor of biochemistry, used the poison to research how vitamin K works in human beings and animals. But he says it also has the makings of an Ideal rat poison. Immune Rats If Suttlc's new compound becomes the latest weapon In man's battle against the ro- dent, it will replace another chemical developed at Wis- consin, Warfarin, which has been in use more than two 4 Watergate-Related Stories in Top Ten Valuable Ink Smear Joe Mushro, 59, maintenance worker at a Phoenix nursing home, said he was offered by a Nevada collector for his ink-smeared bill.

Carry WASHINGTON (UPI) An unmanned Russian satellite will carry small American biological experiments into or- bit for 20 to 30 days late next year. The mission, scheduled for late 1975, represents a major step in scientific cooperation between the two space powers. It will follow next July's mett- ing of Soviet and American spacemen In orbit. The agreement was reached recently at a meeting of scien- tists and engineers in Tashkent, USSR. It calls for the U. S. to prepare biological specimens to fit Into standard Soviet con- tainers a little smaller than a shoebox. The American experiments have not yet been selected but will probably consist of such things as fish embryos, plants and tissue cultures, to see how they are affected by weightlessness. "We have a lot oi experiments that we want to perform to help us understand the changes we have observed in our (astronaut) said David Winter, director of life sciences for the space agency. "This is one way to help us get along with that business before waiting for the space shuttle." Russia files a biological research satellite about once a year in the cosmos series. The U. S. carried out extensive medical research in its Skylab space station but has no current plans for unmanned biological satellites. The space shuttle rocket plane that will provide the next major opportunity for biological research will not fly before 1979. The pact also calls for American researchers to par- ticipate In studies of blood and tissue samples from animals that will fly in next year's biolglcal satellite. Russia uses modified ver- sions of its early Vostok manned capsule for the biological research. The last two satellites flown in the series have stayed aloft for 22 days before returning to gentle earth landings. ON THIS DATE in 1964, Kalian Foreign Minister Giuseppe was sworn in as the new president of Italy. By Aswlilrd Press The Watergate scandal, climaxing with the resignation of Richard Nixon and the inauguration of President Ford, has been voted Ihe top news story of 1974. In their annual poll, editors and news directors of As- sociated Press member news- papers and radio and TV sta- tions placed three other Wa- tergate-related stories among the top ten of the year. The three were Ford's pardon of Nixon, the Democratic sweep in the November elections and Nelson Rockefeller's vice- presidential nomination. The Watergate scandal was also voted the top story hi 1973. Besides Watergate, the top ten stories, in the order of their ranking, were: 2. The economy Inflation above 10 percent, and a business decline that began in January and became a reces- sion by fall. 3. The energy crisis The oil embargo ended in March but the steadily-rising cost of petroleum added to the economic gloom. 4. The kidnaping of Patricia Hearst and her conversion to membership in the Sym- bionese Liberation Army, the guerilla group lhat kidnaped her. 5. Ford's "free, full and ab- solute pardon" of Nixon Sept. 8. 6. The Democratic sweep in the off-year elections. 7. Secretary of State Kis- singer's diplomatic efforts toward a Middle East peace agreement. 8. Ford's conditional am- nesty for deserters and draft resisters of the Vietnam war era. 9. The eruption in Cyprus The Greek-sponsored coup against President Makarios led to the invasion of the island by Turkey and the downfall of Greece's military government. 10. Ford's nomination of Rockefeller, and revelations of Rockefeller's wealth and gift- giving. SAT.-SUN.and NEW YEAR'S EVE- NEW THEATRE SHOW 11 AM-9 FM Ulf SHOW m. SAT.

When first developed, Warfarin was hulled In popu- lar magazines as capable of deallnu "sure death to rats." But recent reports Indicate there are strains of rats now immune to Warfarin. The Environmental Studies Center at Bowling Green (Ohio) State university says surveys taken of rat population In 40 U.S. cit- ies showed half had Warfarin- resistant rats. Warfarin, developed be- tween 1934 and 1947 by Wis- consin biochemist Karl Paul Link, was considered an Ideal rat poison because it acts slowly and does not foster bait shyness as fast-acting chemi- cals do. Warfarin prevents the crea- tion of vitamin K in normal rats, affecting the coagulating properties of their blood. The animals bleed to death In- ternally In four or five days. Destroys Vllamli K Suttlc's chemical destroys vitamin K rather than pre- venting Its creation, with the same end result. Even Ihe so- called super rats, Immune to Warfarin, arc killed. "Either we or someone else within a year will develop an effective rodenticide to deal with Warfarin-immune Suttie said. "It takes a heck of a lot of money to test out these compounds though, and some private concern will have to be willing lo do that." Suttle, whose research is funded by Ihe National Insti- tute of Health, says universi- ties and research foundations usually leave the final testing of such chemicals to private companies. r Zodiac "NO SAUCf ...ALL MIXED DRINKS NON-ALCOHOLIC NO AOf LIMIT 5183 Bit.
