$1 MILLION DAMAGE:
Quake hits California

I

LOS ANGELES I' - A rolling ?or of Feb. 9, 1971, in which 64 per- E
earthquake shook the Southern sons died.

California coast yesterday morn-
ing, cracking plaster, shattering
windows, starting several fires and
inflicting property damage.
The structural damage, mainly
to older buildings, was heaviest in
Oxnard, a coastal city of 70,000
persons, 50 miles northwest of Los
Angeles. Estimates by the State
Office of Emergency Preparedness
placed damage there at up to $1
million, mostly in cracked walls,
broken windows and collapsed
roofs.
Several minor injuries were re-
ported.
California Institute of Technolo-
gy seismologists measured the in-
tensity of the quake at roughly 5.75
on the Richter scale, and said it
was centered in the ocean off Pt.
Mugu, near Oxnard.
Jolting sleeping residents at 6:46
a.m. and lasting about 20 seconds,
the quake recalled the 6.5 tremb-
Hormone
synthesis
automated
WASHINGTON 0P1)} - First auto-
mated production of a pure syn-
thetic hormone was reported yes-
ferday by two University of Cali-
fornia researchers.
They said the achievement had
important implications for future
medical treatment and research.
The hormone artificially produc-
ed by the rapid machine - like
method is "adrenocorticotropin" or
"ACTH". One of the body's vital
natural chemicals' ACTH is pro-
duced by the pituitary gland but
stimulates the activity of the adre-
nal glands. In a report in the Jour-
nal of the American Chemical So-
ciety the researchers said the way
now appears open to using the fast
automatic method to reproduce in
completely pure and active condi-
tion a variety of other giant natur-
al proteins of potential importance
in medical therapy and research.
An American Chemical Society
summary of the new development
said:
"Now molecules can be made in
the space of a few weeks or'
months that previously might have
taken a good portion of a life-
time."
The scientists announcing the
achievement were Doctors Choh
Hao Li and Donald Yamashiro bothr
of U.C.'s hormone research labora-
tory at San Francisco.
Li said the achievement was
made possible by applying new re-
finements to the automated method
called the "solid phase" tech-
nique which was invented by Dr.
Bruce Merrifield of Rockefeller
University.
At present extracts of ACTH
from pig and sheep pituitary
glands are sometimes used to treat
severe rheumatic allergies and cer-
tain other disorders.

"It felt like the end of the j
world," said Richard Rodriquez,E
32, manager of a Mayfair market:
in Oxnard, who estimated damage
at $10,000. He said it felt stronger}
than the 1971 quake.
Outside of Oxnard and the rest
of southern Ventura County, resi-
dents reported mostly falling plas-
ter and broken dishes, along with
tattered nerves.
Residents from Santa Barbara
on the north and San Diego to the
south said they felt the jolt, and
shocks were noticed as far inland I

"The deeper we get into this
thing, the more damage we're
finding," said Oxnard police Lt.
Max Ipson.
Three rock slides were reported
in Ventura County and one block-
ed all lanes of the Pacific Coast
Highway for a time but the way
was open to traffice again by 8:30
a. m.
The quake occurred along the
Malibu coastal fault, reported the
state Division of Mines and Geolo-
gy. Even though it apparently was
centered close to the shoreline,
authorities at the Naval Air Missile
Test Center in nearby Pt. Mugu
said there were no signs of high
wave action.

"Oh, Lord, did I
claimed admitting
Squrrell at Ventura

feel it," ex-
clerk Sarah
County Hos-

pital in Ventura. "It just rolled.
It was terrible. It seemed to last
a long time."
"It was like a slap in the face,"
exclaimed one housewife.
Many storefront windows were
shattered in downtown Oxnard and
roofs collapsed at two stores, one
in Oxnard, the other in Camarillo,
about 10 miles inland. Oxnard fire
officials said fires broke out at two
homes, both quickly extinguished.
Southern California Edison said
13 of its circuits in the Oxnard-Ca-
marillo area were disrupted by the
quake, cutting off electrical power
to at least 7,000 homes and business
firms.
