Up spending on research and develop ment facilities in the traditionally Industrial areas of the United states is expected to barely keep up with inflation but corporate planners say they will invest in the Southwest and South As never before. Increases on the order of 255 percent Are expected during the next three years for states such As Arkansas Louisiana Oklahoma and Texas while some recession plagued states May see actual declines. Word of this shift in research investment comes from a study by Flad amp associates a Madison wis., architecture engineering firm. Taking the first major look since 1972 at capital spending plans for research facilities Flad asked 5,800 companies with research laboratories about their future plans for buildings and equipment. Flad received answers from about 12 percent a smaller response than some researchers consider meaningful. However Thomas Hogan a study director for the National science foundation said it probably is a Good indication of what is happening. Many laboratories Are reluctant to reveal anything about their operations he said and the Sample included a wide variety of labs from different parts of the country and doing different types of research. The results which do not include investment by government or universities show stagnant research budgets in areas Trad tonally considered the most highly industrialized said James w. Hornik director of administration for Flad and an adviser for the study in a Telephone interview. A the Pacific coast has been very attractive but its getting saturated. Its very difficult to attract research people to the area and the same is True of the mid Atlantic area a he said. The study showed an average increase of 60 percent in Plant investment and 31 percent for investment in equipment. The three most industrialized regions a mid Atlantic Pacific and Northeast a All fell below the Plant investment average. Only one Region indicated an actual decline in Plant spending. Firms with laboratories in the Plains states a Minnesota Iowa Missouri North Dakota South Dakota Nebraska and Kansas a plan a 46 percent drop in investment the study showed. Hornik said a people and resources Are the two driving forces behind the shift. You want to be somewhere close to your raw materials he said. Oil research for instance has moved toward the Oil. A the other has to do with the Market. For instance durable goods manufacturers tend to follow the shifts in the Popula Tion. As you get these companies moving. You re going to drag the lab right along with even with a massive shift toward them Southern states have a Long Way to go before they will compare to the Silicon Valley or even the Ohio Valley since the Large percentage increases Are from such a Low base. A Region with one of the largest percentage increases the Southeast a Mississippi Alabama Tennessee and Ken Tucky a still will be last in actual spending at $9.3 million. By comparison one of the no growth areas the mid Atlantic expects $704 million in new investments. The most meaningful increase Hornik said probably is for new England where a 241 percent Plant increase comes on top of an already healthy research budget. A shift to High technology industries there is expected to pump $307 million into research facilities and equipment. While much of the research in vestment is tied to the general shift of Industry toward the Sun Belt there a More to it said Hornik. Much of today or amp a invest ment is in industries already Strong in the South especially agriculture and Oil. Greatest facility increases Are occurring in livestock printing and publishing drugs paints rubber and plastics and Petroleum and Coal. Female hormones linked to male heart attacks honoured.

Scientists found elevated Levels of the oestrogen hormone oestradiol in a group of men 61 to 88 years old who have had heart attacks while comparing them to men of the same age who were free from heart attacks.

He said a finding of High oestradiol might also signal a Man should take aspirin on a regular basis one of the experimental methods of attempting to reduce heart attack risk. Aspirin makes blood platelets Slippery preventing the formation of clots. Phillips also on the staff of St. Luke a Roosevelt medical Center was asked Why High Levels of the female sex hormone circulating in a Many a blood appears to be a precursor for heart attack when High Levels of oestrogen in premenopausal women is supposed to protect them against heart attacks. No one knows the answer he said. Quot if i had a cholesterol count Over 150 and a High level of oestradiol i would work to bring Down the cholesterol count Quot Castelli said.
