GOLAN HEIGHTS, Syria (P)-
As Israeli shells continue to ex-
plode in the countryside around
him for the 74th consecutive day
yesterday, a Syrian peasant
shrugged and said, "Well, if we
manage to survive, at this rate
we'll all soon get rich as scrap
metal merchants."
It's a wry joke. But it is also
true that as you walk down the
dusty unpaved streets of the
scattered villages in this area
you are as likely to stumble on
a piece of shrapnel as on a

stone.
MANY HOUSES are complete-
ly destroyed. Most others have
shell holes of varying dimen-
sions punched in their flat earth
roofs or black volcanic rock
walls.
The village streets and t h e
country lanes are bumpy with
hastily filled-in craters.
Every day, the villagers say,
fresh violence pours down upon
them from the Israeli guns and
planes.
THE LANDSCAPE is con-
stantly punctuated with the
black and brown clouds from

[am Summerlin - a physician
and immunology researcher -
who admitted that early on the
morning of March 26 he used a
pen to darken patches on the
skin of two white mice, the
committee said. S
By doing this, Summerlin
made it appear that he had been
able to successfully transplant
skin between animals that v'tre
genetically incompatible by first
storing the skin in a common
laboratory culture solution, the
committee indicated.
Such results would have great
potential in research into can-
cer and immunology. Scientists
said the approach does eemn to
affect skin but requires further
inquiry.
SUMMERLIN had told a sem-
inar of the American Cancer
Society on March 30, 1973, that
the technique of storing tissue
in culture for several weeks
could make it posible to trans-
plant organ.s without using dan-
gerous immunity-suppressing
drugs.
The review committee recom-
mended, and the institute's
board of trustees agreed, t h a t

Thomas said Summerlin is

exploding shells, that blossom
briefly like some huge exotic
flowers before drifting to dis-
solve in the hazy mountain air.
The thud of the guns and the
crunch of explosions echoes in
the hills near the towering mass
of snow-streaked Mt. Hermon
becoming part o fthe local way
of life.
As many as 30 separate ex-
plosions were heard in 90-min-
ute periods yesterday morning
in the vicinity of the village of
Deir el Addes, 30 miles from
Damascus.
"THAT'S nothing unusual,"
said the village headman Muta-
bed Saade. The explosions came
from behind a small hillock
about a mile from the village
which Saade said was occupied
by the Israelis in the October
war.
"Don't walk together in
groups for if the Israelis see
you they will open fire on us,"
he warned a group of eight jour-
nalists. The streets exposed to
any would-be observer on the
hilltop were deserted though
20 to 30 villagers gathered in
the village square, cut off from
enemy view.
