Researcher Uses Spiders In Drug Testing Project RALEIGH, N.C, (AP) Spinning busily, the drugged spider produced a web that was a tangled, patternless wisp. Dr. Peter N. Witt, director of research at the North Caro- lina department of mental health, regularly gives spiders doses of LSD, amphetamines, tranquillizers and other drugs. His goal is to observe in the spiders' web-spinning the ef- fects of drugs, separating in- nate behavior from behavior which is learned. "At the non-human level, it Is ons of the more sensntive and reliable methods to differ- entiate drug Witt said in an interview. Taking LSD leads to webs in which the threads are morfi regularly spaced than normal, with little trace of minor ir- regularities found in a normal web. Amphetamines produce ir- regular webs, tranquillizers small webs and barbiturates in high doses severely irregu- lar webs. MISS INFLUENCES Witt said his guess is that the near-perfect webs pro- duced under the influence of LSD are the result of the spi- der paying less attention to outside influences such as wind, light and noise. lajor Airlines Drop Movies NEW YORK (AP) Two ajor airlines have announced ey are dropping the showing movies on long distance, do- estic morning flights. Rea- ns: to save money; passen- ers aren't interested in seeing ms that early in the day. American Airlines st o p p e d owing movies Tuesday on r e -n o o n departures. Trans orld Airlines announced it ould end its screenings next onth on similar flights. American will discontinue 28 ily movies and TWA 22. .Each ovie costs about for each owing. In the same way, he said, spiders on amphetamines don't seem to be able to use the information they have gathered on just where their next thread should go. A "lack of drive" seems to produce the small webs spun by spiders on tranquillizers, Witt said. Witt said the effects of drugs on humans are more complicated because mood, situations and expectations enter into the picture. Excessive Radiation Closes Plant LONDON (AP) Part o Britain's nuclear processing plant, which turns out fuel fo bombs and electricity genera tors, has been closed because o excessive radiation, the Atomi Energy Authority disclosec Thursday. Two men who were in a con taminated section of the plant in Cumberland at the time have been under medical observation since the closure Aug. 24. The incident occurred in the section producing plutonium fuel from uranium waste. The rest of the plant was not af fected. A spokesman for the authority said: "The radiation levels were small and there was no ab- normal exposure of personnel to them. There has been no dam- age to the plant and no release of radioactive material from it The section has been closec pending a thorough examina- ion."
