SENSORY STIMULI:
Wilson Explains
Pleromrble Role

I

By STEVEN HALLER
Why is it that dogs are able to
tell identical twins apart merely
through minute differences in
odor, and certain fish can distin-
guish their own school from other
schools of the same species-thus
showing a keenness of sense which
humans cannot even come close to
demonstrating?
The answer undoubtedly lies in
the field of a special class of
chemical substances called phero-
mones, according to Prof. Edward
0. Wilson of Harvard University.
Speaking before a zoology de-
partment seminar on "Chemical
Communication Among Animals,"
Prof. Wilson explained yesterday
that a pheromone is a substance
secreted externally by an animal
and capable of influencing the be-
havior of other animals of the
same species. Systems involving
such substances are now believed
to constitute the dominant means
of communication in many animal
species.
There are two major ways in
which pheromones released by one
animal can influence the receptor
system of another. In one man-
ner, the "releaser effect," the
pheromone works directly upon
the receiver's central nervous sys-
tem, Prof. Wilson said.
If the principal function of the
pheromone is to trigger a chain
of physiological events in the re-
cipient without itself necessarily
being directly responsible for the
final action, it is referred to as a
"primer effect," he added.
The limiting factor of an ani-
mal's ability to detect a given odor
must be in the receptor system,
Group Honors
Rachmaninoff
A club to perpetuate the 'vorks
of Sergei Rachmaninoff has been
organized by University students.
The group is issuing recordings
of Rachmaninoff preludes to radio
stations with a request that they
be played as the first step in the
advancement of the music of this
early 20th century composer and
conductor.
The club, created by John
Checkaway, '65, and Charles Cree-
cy, '66, plans to hold lectures and
piano demonstrations of Rach-
maninoff's music.
The group has a current mem-
bership of 40, and is a non-profit
organization, said the founders.

Prof. Wilson continued. Yet this
limiting factor in insects, for ex-
ample, goes far beyond the value
it would take on in a human be-
ing. It has been estimated that one
molecule of the sex attractant
pheromone from a female gypsy
moth is sufficient to excite a male
moth when the latter's antenna is
touched by the molecule, he said.
The pheromones of mammals
are not nearly so well understood
as are those of insects, Prof. Wil-
son said. However,,recent studies
have shown that the response
members of the cat family display
upon encountering catnip stems
from the fact that this plant mim-
ics a pheromone prominent in fe-
line mating activity,
"The significance of catnip is
thus another example of what I
call 'Wilson's Rule'-that any ani-
mal behavior pattern which at
first seems irrational, inexplicable
and not related in any clear way
to other patterns of behavior is
usually shown in the end to be
concerned with courtship," he add-
ed.
The possibility that human
pheromones comparable to those
of lower organisms do indeed exist
cannot be dismissed, Prof. Wilson
said. He added that striking sexual
differences have been observed in
the ability of humans to smell
certain substances.
One French biologist has re-
ported that the odor of a chemi-
cal substance called exaltolide is
perceived clearly only by sexually
mature females and at that is dis-
cerned most sharply at about the
ime of ovulation.
Studies of fire ants have shown
of pheromones that they are se-
creted in very minute substances
and quickly diffuse into the air.
They have a strong ability to at-
tract other animals of the one
species involved.
One pheromone found i4 fire
ants has been shown to be an
"alarm" substance. When it is re-
leased into the air at a relatively
low level, other ants come to in-
vestigate; when it is emitted at a
high level, other ants recognize
it as an alarm signal and prepare
to attack.
Prof. Wilson noted that the
study of chemical communication
in the animal kingdom is still at
an early stage. The discovery of a
chemical "syntax" relating the
bits of information relayed chem-
ically by other animals is but one
of the interesting problems for
which scientists .hope to come up
with a solution in the foreseeable
future, he concluded.

and prepare our own food and
maintain an honor system on the
basis that this is an apartment
house.
"Because of this dichotomy of
philosophy, we would like a def-
inite policy statement about what
type of living unit this is to be.
We feel this is important so we
may better understand the basis
for present and future policy."
Control, But
"The University has got to have
some control, but we want to see
how they draw fine lines of au-
thority," Seeley Vice-President
Sue Joyce, '64, said yesterday. She
called the request a "clarifica-
tion."
The other specific recommend-
ations were in response to opinions
of residents expressed "at house
meetings and just told to mem-
bers of the steering committee,"
Miss Joyce explained.

First, the report states, "Due
to the unique situation of Seeley
House, we feel we should be allow-
ed to remain in our apartments
during Thanksgiving, Christmas
and spring vacations."
The only possible objiections toI
this are "personnel and security,"
the report indicates. It suggested,
that graduate residents be charged
with responsibilities handled by
the advisors and night watchmen
in the non-vacation period. There'
are 32 graduate women in Seeley.
Close Quarters
"With four girls living in such
close quarters, study space and a
study atmosphere are at a prem-
ium,'' the report claims. It rec-
ommends building a study room
in the basement to alleviate the
problem.
Although solicitation is forbid-
den in other University residence
halls, deliveries should be allowed
in Seeley, it was proposed.
