The revaluing and assessing must be completed by next April I The recommendation came after a special meeting of the conference board was called to deal with the state directive. State law requires new assessments be made of all real estate in 1975, according to County Assessor John Hart, but the state can order Benton county to revalue again during the next four years. Revaluations by county assessors are required every four years with the state being able to order revaluations twice during the interims. The key problem seems to be that assessors in each county are uncertain as to how much land should be revalued, and the state, Hart said, has been noncommittal about w hat is expected at that level He said it’s causing frustration and difficulties for assessors across the state. The county received an order directing residential property valuations be raised 17 percent last year and Hart said that because that was done, he believes no other increase is warranted for the 1975 tax rolls. The conference board, making the recommendation on farm land values, is made up of the county supervisors, mayors of Benton county cities. and representatives of all school districts Brandt Is Chairman Of Justice Committee ANAMOSA - Lowell Brandt, activities consultant at the Iowa men’s reformatory, has been named Iowa s Jaycee criminal justice chairman by Contact, Inc., a nonprofit consulting agency supported by the ll.

IOWA CITY - The search for anti-tumor drugs can be tedious, discouraging and apparently endless Dr John I* Kosazza, an associate professor or medical chemistry and natural products in the University of Iowa college of pharmacy, explains that extricating a useful cancer drug from nature’s storehouses means sifting a handful of possible useful compounds from thousands under consideration It s a long time from the first hopeful reports by investigators that a new drug may be able to slow or stop the growth of cancer cells to the point at which a drug is included in the armor of the physician’s fight against cancer During the first six months of last year. Dr Rosazza noted, there were 18.(Hid new materials screened for the kind of activity needed to inhibit cancer cell growth During the same period, only six compounds were considered to be sufficiently active and nontoxic for limited study in patients with cancer. Natural Compound Many substances come from chemical synthesis in the laboratory but Dr. Rosazza is chiefly interested in compounds that originate in plants and animals. Nationwide, about half the substances tested last year were from natural products as researchers continued to comb the plant and animal kingdoms for active anti-tumor compounds This “back-to-nature” search for help in controlling a discase is not unprecednted, Dr Rosazza emphasized. “ G (>ver n men t resea re he rs screened thousands of plants in their search for steroid hormone precursors during the 1949s and 1959s,’’ he recalled. ‘‘These steroid per-eursors were essential to the development of relatively inexpensive syntheses of many types of hormone products.” Difficulty The search for cancer drugs uitb new and novel chemical structures is being conducted in plants, micro-organisms and even in animal tissues.

Mom and Dad Limit one special per tamily. from field areas all over the world, extracts arc made arid screened for anti cancer activity Extracts that show activity are purified for further testing One major difficulty in dealing with anti-tumor drugs from nature is that such chemicals have very complex structures, making chemical synthesis or modification complicated. One very unusual and practical way of obtaining modified cancer compounds is by allowing micro-organisms to change the drug s chemical structure. Modify Compounds Dr. Rosazza and his coworkers at the U. of I. have demonstrated that micro-organisms can often metabolize and modify drug compounds in the same way that humans and other mammals can Thus, the micro-organism acts as a convenient, simple “factory” which may provide relatively large amounts of active tumor compounds Micro-organisms like fungi and bacteria often cannot he seen with the unaided eye. Placed in nutrient solutions, micro-organisms gwow and reproduce at very rapid rates. It is necessary to find the “right” micro-organism which wilUtransform each anti-tumor drug, so Dr. Rosazza mainains about 2(H) different cultures in his laboratory refrigerator Safety Factor Before any compound is tried on a cancer patient, it must successfully pass dozens of tests and safety checks repeated on laboratory animals. The process takes several years. Even if the compound reaches the stage of human testing, unanticipat€*d roadblocks appear. to its use often “It’s very frustrating,” Dr Rosazza said “The drug may seem to have all the right activities, hut after years of testing, the word comes hack, ‘Sorry, it just isn t working on the patients’. “Also, people tend to forget about those drugs which have high activity, but don’t make it as a ‘super-drug’. Few people have gone back to the lab with these drugs to see what could be modified to make them more effective. We are doing that at the research laboratories of the college of pharmacy.” Dr Rosazza is currently working under a three-year grant of $88,152 from the National Cancer Institute. "There is an important role fro drugs in the treatment of cancer, hut any compound we’re working on now would be available only after several years,“ he pointed out. “Emphasis must be put on the available techniques we have now to cure cancer: early detection, surgery, radiation, and existing drug therapy.” Accident Not Cause Of Trotter’s Death MAYNARD — James Trotter, 58, Maynard, died Sunday in Veteran’s hospital in Iowa City. Trotter had been hospitalized following a July 31 accident three miles north of Maynard on a blacktop road However, it has been established that he died because of ill health, not from injuries suffered in the accident. Memorial services are at I p m. Tuesday at the Delsing-Wright chapel in Maynard. He is survived by his wife and three sons.
