Murphy Sees New
Clues To Cure
For Leukemia
SAN FRANCISCO---New clues to
the cause of- leukemia were dis.
closed by Prof. :William H. Mur-
phy at a meeting-of the American
Medical Association Tuesday.
According .to Prof. Murphy,
three new lines -:of, investigation
have produced evidence which ap-
parently links leukemia, a cancer-
like disease of the blood, to vi-
ruses.
His current deport concerns re-
sults of continued efforts to prove
that viruses are actually connect-
ed with the disease; that viruses
he and his colleagues have found
really are viruses; and that anti-
bodies to these viruses may exist.
Three Points
Regarding the discovered
"agents," believed to be viruses,
Dr. Murphy stressed three points.
First, the agents have at least
eight important physical qualities'
similar to viruses.
Second, after the agents were
isolated in the laboratory and sub-
sequently injected into mice, the
mice got something so "similar to
leukemia as to be indistinguish-
able."
Third, five to 50 per cent of
normial children were found to
have in their blood antibodies to

the different viruses isolated.
Although virologists in the Unit-
ed States and England have found
what they believe may be viruses
of leukemia, Prof. Murpry and his
co-workers were the first to dem-
onstrate leukemia - associated
agents that cause a similar dis-
ease in animals.
The University research has
dealt with a large number of
cases, including 26 children and 14
adults who had leukemia. There
have been control studies of more
than 100 people who are free of
leukemia, for purposes of compar-
ison.
Two kinds of acute leukemia in
children are included in the study:
stem-cell leukemia, which repre-
sents 95 per cent of all cases of
the disease, and grancytic leuke-
mia.
Extensive Studies
Extensive antibody studies were
made. Dr. Murphy found that 90
per cent of children with stem-
cell leukemia had antibodies to
one of the agents isolated from a
child with stem-like leukemia.
For the most part, children
with stem-cell leukemia did not
have antibodies to the other three
test agents. Surprisingly, normal
adults did not have antibodies to
any of the agents.
Virus-like agents similar to those
associated with leukemia were iso-
lated from a child with acute
dupus erythematosus, a usually

fatal disease of connective tissue
affecting various organs, cause
unknown.
Adults with leukemia had an-
Libodies to this LE-associated
agent.
Cautioning his audience that
none of the three lines of re-
search was conclusive by itself,'
Prof. Murphy said that the total
body of evidence seems to make a
"reasonably strong case connect-

Center.

The high school and college
diploma, which now imply the
completion of studies, should give
way to a "Certificate of Transfer"
to further instruction, Prof.
Howard Y. McClusky declared yes-
terday.
"We need to scrap the impos-
sible notion that in 12, 14 or 16
years one can acquire enough
knowledge to last a lifetime," said
McClusky, a consultant in adult
education.
"The ultimate test of formal
schooling for youth should be the
extent to which it contributes to
a lifetime of learning," he stated.
The school dropout represents
a tragic loss in a continuously
"learning society," according to
the University educator. "He might
withdraw temporarily to work,
with a built-in plan to return for
later study, or he might drop out

of one program in order to 'drop
in' to another.
"But in a learning society the
act of dropping out could never
be accepted as determining the
final status of the pupil as a
learner. The student would be
presented with multiple opportun-
ities for instruction until he finds
something that enlists his talents
and keeps alive his interest in
learning.
"The days are gone when a
dropout could secure a respectable
foothold in the economy. Drop-
ping out of school today too often
means the end of organized learn-
ing. The early dropout is usually
condemned to a low social status.
"I much closer link is needed
between the school and the agen-
cies in the community," says Mc-
Clusky. "We must surround the
pupil with a knowledge of the
connections between what he has
started in school and the programs
he can turn to for continuing
these pursuits in later years.
"He should be constantly re-
minded by the administration,
