Amphibian facility may croak as
NIH cuts off research funding
By ELAINE RIDEOUT
For the past 15 years, only the
scalpels of University researchers
threatened the happy existence of frogs
living at the University of Michigan
Amphibian Facility located on S. Four-
But now the security of frogs,
polywogs, salamanders, and resear-
chers alike is in jeopardy.
THE NATIONAL Institute of Health
(NIH) recently discontinued funding
that has supported the facility since its
inception in 1964. According to George
Nace, amphibian laboratory direcotr,
the Institute was forced to rechannel
funds partly due to the institute's shor-
tage of Rhesus monkeys used to
ntaiufacture polio vaccine.
*Nace explained that because India is
no longer sending the Institute the
nionkeys, it has to spend additional
funds to breed their own. The institute
has also had other problems with a
trckers' strike which caused the
department to lose more money and
withdraw the facility's grant.
Nace said the facility will continue to
operate because it has enough money
set aside to keep going for about
another half a year. Meanwhile, the
organization is looking for donations
from any source, be it federal, state,
local or a private beneficiary.
"STAFF MEMBERS affection-
ately dubbed the facility,
" .RO.A.K."-(Center for Research
of Amphibian Kinships). At the center,.
individual histories of frog generations
are carefully recorded and studied.
Nace said frogs are vital in all areas of
research because their muscular and
nervous systems are similar to those of
Nace explained that frogs have an
added advantage of being "ectother-
mic," which allows a frog to adjust its
body temperature to the outside en-
vironment. "This enables us to remove
an individual nerve that can live on its
own for hours," he said.
Frogs have been used to study drug
effects, infectious and neural diseases,
developmental defects, regeneration
and tumors. Facility- Colony Coor--
dinator Christian Richards said
through genetic and developmental
research at the center, the sex of frogs
has been manipulated and offspring
have been produced without a father.
"It's working even better than we ex-
pected," she said. "We had thousands
more tadpoles to find extra room for."
PRIOR TO C.R.O.A.K., wild frogs
were shipped to the University labs
directly from frog collectors. Nace said.
the commercial frogs came packed
tightly in boxes and often arrived star-
ved, diseased, dead, or mangled. Nace
said he found these conditions "in-
tolerable in the context of mid-
twentieth century biology," and then
started designing a breeding facility
that would provide frogs with both
aquatic and terrestial environment
and live food.
The job wasn't easy. "We worked fo
a long time trying to make a containe
which duplicates.what a frog needs it
nature. At first we ended up with
nothing but a mudhole," he confessed.
Today enamel pans and plastic bot
tles house the 10,000 tadpoles that hatch
daily. Adult frogs live in container
with simulated summer environmen
or hibernate in tubs of deep water in a
area kept at 40.
FROG FEEDING behavior i
another topic of study and the facility
breeds crickets, birds, flies, an
mosquitos to balance Nace's amphibia
environment. "We used to feed th
frogs flies, earthworms, wax moths
and sow bugs until we found they (th
frogs) didn't grow well," Nace said.
Nace said he and his staff are now
working to trick frogs into acceptin
more economical, non-living food wic
can be nutritionally controlled. Anothe
project goal is to control the light, tem
perature, and dietary conditions tha
stimulate reproductive behavior of a
These projects may have to be aban
doned, however, if the facility does no
receive more funds. Nace said staf
members are setting up local an
national committees to work on th
problem. "If another federal sourc
doesn't volunteer its support, we'll nee
help," he added.
PERCHED ON THE EDGE of a budget crisis, this fellow and thousands of other slimy creatures may be out of a job
unless the University Amphibian Facility finds enough money to continue research.

Park's government drew praise for

7 Solutions To Your Problem

the Michigan Daily
This question is the opening words of the 2nd Psalm. It is
asked and answered by God Almighty. The heathen are
revealed as those who resist and seek to get rid of God's L aw,
and His Ten Commandments. Not only do the heathen rage,
resist, and seek to get rid of Gods Law, but also they resist
and seek to get rid of GodsAnointed, TheLord Jesus Christ,
who came from heaven to deliver man from his "estate of sin
and misery." He came down and was born of The Virgin
Mary, and so became God and man. The God-man
substituted Himself for fallen man and kept Gods Com-
mandments perfectly in his stead. Then, He again
substituted for fallen man and took upon Himself the wrath
and curse of Gods judgment upon rebellion and

in recent years the Protestant Nations have forsaken
God's Commandment regarding The Sabbath Day. Even
before The Bible records God's Commandment to Adam
forbidding the eating of "the tree of knowledge of good and
evil," there is the implication of the 4th Commandment -
"Remember The Sabbath Day to keep it holy..." - given at
Mt. Sinai much later in time. This implication appears in the
2nd chapter of Genesis, verses 2 and 3: "And God blessed
the seventh day, and sanctified It because that in ItHe rested
from all His work which God created and made." God
sanctified it! What do you do with it - as you please? Jesus
