New Cancer Discoveries WASHINGTON (AP) Th National Cancer Institute re ported here that new ap proaches to understanding th cause and possible prevention o cancer have been opened up by recent findings of several gov ernment-supported fesearchers The findings involve the so called master chemicals of lif cellular nucleic acids DNA and the latte emerging with new-found im portance, at least in some in stances. Indeed, said the institute, the new discoveries mean that "fun damental ideas about the mas ter chemicals of life will have te be revised." Specifically, the major finding is that rated as only the "slave" of DNA in helpin; promote the processes of hered ity and growth, including malig nant shapes up as the real boss, at least in somi instances. GOREN ON BRIDGE BV CHARLES H. GOREN !0 Iffl: t, Th. TfltiHl Both vulnerable. -West deals. NORTH A Void opened and South won with the ace. If diamonds are divided three-two, declarer has 12 top tricks, however West's double indicated that the trumps were stacked. As a safety play to retain control of the hand, South led the nine of dia- monds and when West covered with the tea, the latter was permitted to hold the trick. He continued with the queen of hearts which' declarer ruffed. A; spade was bumped wltn the six of diamonds and the ace was cashed, East show- ing out. South'led a club to his hand, Intending to draw the remaining trump and then run the clubs and discard his last two spades. West administered a rude jolt by ruffing away the king of club) and then putting his partner In with the ace of spades to get another club ruff. The outcome on the deal was an 800 point deficit for North and South. East and West were confi- dent that they had netted a substantial swing on the deal, however they were In for surprise as .we will see tomorrow when we examine the result at the other table where their teammates held the North-South cards. The institute explains that up to now RNA has generally been classed as a second-rate.citizen because it is formed in a eel! from a DNA then serves only as a glorified messenger boy, carrying out DNA's genetic code instruc- tions. PATTERN REVERSED But now, the institute said, three teams of scientists have independently found that certain viruses with an UNA core con- tain an enzyme or catalyst that reverses the usual pattern of genetic information-channeling. "Thus, these findings open up whole new approaches to under- standing causation and preven- tion of cancers." Viruses have long been sus pect as the causes of at leas some forms of human cancer But so far, despite some sugges live leads, no virus has. def nitely been pinned down as cause of any type of human ma lignancy. The institute credited the inl tial findings regarding th switched roles of RNA and DM to Drs. Howard M. Temin am Satoshi Mizutani of the Univer sity of Wisconsin; and fir David Baltimore of the Massi chusfitts Institute of Technology Their results have been con finned independently by Dr. So Spiegelman of Columbia Univer sity College of Physicians an" Surgeons, the institute said.

Dr. Alec Sehon, head of the department of immunology at he University of Manitoba's school of medicine, told the North Atlantic Treaty Organi- zation study institute here that ;'if we had the money we'd solvo cancer." Dr. Sehon said here that sci- entists have learned how to du- >Kcate the process by which the protects cancer from "de- ence mechanisms" designed o attack it. He said the same phenomena, called enhancement, has been in- duced at the cellular level in cancerous amimals, and in a ising percentage of cases las destroyed the cancer. He said he hopes that this approach, which he terms the rational immune therapeutic approach'" can be tried on hu- mans within three years. JUST BECAUSE
