F MAN AND MONKEYS:
Coatney Deineates
Malaria Research

By STEVEN HALLER
There is now no doubt that at
least two different species of ma-
larial organisms found in monkeys
can thrive in humans as well, Dr.
G. Robert Coatney, chief of para-
site chemotherapy at the National
Institute of Allergy and Infectious
Disease, said yesterday.
Speaking on "Malaria: Mon-
keys, Mosquitoes and Man," Prof.
Coatney delineated the results of.
the years of research behind that
alliterative title. He noted that
malaria has been around even be-
fore man himself, which is known
from the fact that the disease,
which takes a higher toll of hu-
man lives per year than any other,
is found in other primates as well.
Malaria is a chronic ailment
caused by protozoans called plas-
modia. The parasite is injected in-
to the bloodstream of the victim
by the bite of a mosquito. There
sexual forms circulate until the
next mosquito bites, at which time
these forms which have been pro-
duced in the blood are picked up
by the mosquito and transmitted
to a new host.
Weakest Link
"One mu§t break the chain ofj
the disease's cycle at its weakest
link," Prof. Coatney observed. For
years this has meant draining
swamps, digging ditches, and pour-
ing oil on stagnant ponds, in or-
der to kill the mosquito larvae.
It has been a/comparatively re-
cent facet of this fight against ma-
laria that research be conducted
on Simian malaria, Prof. Coatney
said. He added that one reason
for this has been the reluctance of
many workers to accept the idea
that a form of malaria found in
the lower primates could also be+
found in man.
It was in 1932 that a type of
Simian malaria was first trans-
mitted to man. For a while experi-.
ments in this line were unsuccess-
ful. But in 1960, Prof. Coatney re-
lated, he got a call from a co-
worker in Memphis, who told him,
"I have malaria-and I believe it
is of Simian origin!"

SGC Urges
State Move
On Motion
By GLORIA BOWLES
Student Government Council
unanimously urged passage of a
civil rights bill by the state Leg-
islature at its Wednesday meeting.
Passed by the Senate and cur-
rently under consideration by the
House, the bill would extend the
powers of the state's Fair Employ-
ment Practices Commission to in-
clude housing, education and pub-
lic accommodations.
In the motion, introduced by
Howard Abrams, '63, Council not-
ed that "many members of the
student community find them-
selves very adversely affected by
conditions that this bill would par-
tially alleviate."
Housing Problems
The declaration cited the hous-
ing problems faced by Negro and
international students at the Uni-
versity, and mandated the Council
president to ask Gov. George Rom-
ney, several representatives, and
University President H a r 1 a n
Hatcher to give their support to
the bill.
In other action, Council decided
to ask Mayor Cecil O. Creal to
fulfill a campaign pledge. Creal
said he would proclaim April 18
"Step Toward Peace Day," if he
were elected. The Council declara-
tion, presented by Council mem-
ber Gary Gilbar, '65, notes that the
"academic community is constant-
ly aware of the ever-present threat
of nuclear destruction and asks
that all segments of the com-
munity give deep thought on how
we may avert nuclear catastrophe.'

G. ROBERT COATNEY
... researches malaria
While dissecting mosquitoes in-
fected with Simian malaria to ex-
amine the plasmodia in their sa-
livary glands, the Memphis work-
ers had thought nothing of mios-
quitoes which escaped, in the be-
lief that no harm could come of it.
But before long the telltale symp-
toms of fever and anemia appear-
ed, and the truth of the matter
was discovered.
