Come back ...
The University says its student ranks have thinned to a mere 35,954 at this
campus-a loss of 36 heads since last year. So that makes 22,111 undergrads
and 13,843 grads here to fight over football tickets with. LSA remains the
largest school with 16,337 enrolled and the College of Pharmacy is still the
smallest, with 483. As far as those 36 lost souls are concerned, to you they
may have been just 72 more elbows to bump into, but we miss them already.

DOCTORS WIN FOR RESEARCH
Nobel to 3 Americans

STOCKHOLM, Sweden (AP) -
Three Americans, pioneers -in the
study of hormones and their effects
on the human body, won the 1977
Nobel prize for medicine yesterday.-
The award went to Drs. Rosalyn
Yalow, Roger Guillemin and Andrew

ly, arrived at similar results in
competitive studies of peptide hor-
mone production of the brain.
Their conclusions "laid the founda-
tions to modern hypothalamic re-
search," or research on the hypothal-
mus gland in the human body, the

body's "master gland." They did this
by showing conclusively that the
brain and central nervous system
secreted hormones that regulated the
pituitary.
The work of Dr. Yalow and her
associates, including her chief col-
laborator the late Solomon Berson,
on peptide hormones has led to "a
formidable development of their own
fields of research. . . they h a v e
opened new vistas within biological

and medical research far outside the
borders of their own spheres of inter-
est," the institute said.
Dr. Yalow worked more than 20
years with Berson to develop a"news
more precise way to measure hoW
much of various hormones were
present in the body. Berson died five
years ago, and Nobel prizes are given
only to living persons.
An early result of their technique
was the discovery that diabetics; who
had been thought to lack insulin alto-
gether,. actually had some insulin,
but were unable to use it because
their bodies resisted its action.

number of American prize winners in
this year's competition so far. The
prize for economics will be an-
nounced today.
Dr. Yalow, 56, of the Veterans
Administration Hospital in, the
Bronx, N.Y., is the second woman to
win the medicine prize, and the first
in three decades.
THE NEW YORK-BORN mother of
two children won half the $145,000
award for research in endocrinology,
the study of glands and the hormones
they produce, and for development of
radioimmunoassays of peptide hor-
mones.
"This was pioneering work of the
highest level. It had enormous im-
pact," said the awarding faculty, the
Royal Caroline Institute of Medicipe
in Stockholm.
"I will not be modest. I thinly radio-
immunioassay has been a very im-
portant discovery,".Dr. Yalow told a
news conference yesterday at the
Bronx hospital where she conducted
he.r research. Radioimmunbassay is
a technique for measuring various
substances in the body, including
hormones, viruses, vitamins and
drugs.
THE OTHER half of the 1977 prize.
for medicine was shared by Guille-,
min, 53, dean of the Salk Institute in
San Diego, Calif., andSchally, 50, of
the Veterans Administration Hos-
pital in New Orleans, La.
In independent research over the
past two decadep, the French-born
Guillemin and the Polish-born Schal-

institute said.
PEPTIDES ARE the substances
built up by chains of amino acids.
Many hormones in the body belong to
this group, produced by 'the thyroid
gland, the parathyroid glands, the
hypophysis, the placenta, the gastro-
intestinal tract and other tissues.
Guillemin, reached at his home in
the San Diego suburb of La Jolla,
said he was "pleasantly surprised"
to win the award.
He said his research has "implica-
tions in the field of diabetes, popula-
tion control and infertility."
SCHALLY SAID he was "extreme-
ly happy and extremely gratified" by
the award. Contacted in New Or-
leans, he told reporters, "I feel very
deeply moved that the Nobel prize
committee felt my work was worthy
of this great honor, the greatest
honor that exists."
Between them, Schally and Guille-
min helped correct the long-held mis-
conception that the pituitary was the
