Georgia senate
defeats ERA

ATLANTA (AP) - The Georgia
Senate voted 32-23 yesterday to defeat a
proposal to ratify the Equal Rights
Amendment, handing the controversial
amendment its second defeat in,
Georgia in five years.
The vote came after four hours of
debate in the Senate, where the ERA
was hailed by supporters as "the heart
of democracy" and criticized by op-
ponents as legally unnecessary.
STATE REP. Cathey Steinberg, a
leading supporters, said its backers had
not given up on the Senate and would
move for reconsideration today.
She said she was pleased with the
"sensible" debate, which she said
stayel closer to the issues than in 1975,

when the Senate' defeated the proposal
33-22.
The amendment needed 29 votes for
ratification in the Senate. It was
brought to the Senate floor after the
Senate Special Judiciary Committee
approved the ratification resolution last
week.
THE ERA, WHICH would outlaw
discrimination based on sex, must be
ratified by 38 states by June 30, 1982, to
become part of the Constitution. The
original deadline of March 22, 1979, was
extended by act of Congress.
It has been approved by 35 states, but
five have since rescinded approval. The
validity of that move still is in question
and the Justice Department has said it
is up to Congress to decide.

Supreme Ct.
upholds
Michigan
ballot law

WASHINGTON (UPI) - The
Supreme Court yesterday rebuffed a
challenge to Michigan's procedure for
allowing new parties on the ballot in the
general election.
The justices let stand a lower-court
decision rejecting arguments by the
U.S. Labor Party that the law im-
properly deprives it of a place on the
ballot.
UNDER A 1976 Michigan law, a new
political party must file petitions with a

certain number of signatures to be cer-
tified for the ballot in the state's August
primary election.
The party then must receive at least
three-tenths of one per cent of the total
number of the votes cast in the primary
to be certified for the November
general election ballot.
In November, the principal candidate
of the party must receive a specified
amount of funds to automatically
qualify the party to be listed in the next

general election.
The U.S. Labor Party challenged the
procedure, arguing the state failed to
properly advise voters of the "in-
tricacies" of the party qualifications
and thus caused "gross voter con-
fusion and error."
The party said election officials
maintained they had not received funds
that would provide for education and
instruction in casting a vote for a new
party.

* Soviet scientists try to create
live 12-foot test-tube mammoth

MOSCOW.AP)-The viets hope to
create sooh, through f ti "test-tube and
for study only, a live] -foot-tall mam-
moth of the type that became extinct
thousands of years ago.
Soviet scientists say they have
begun a program to create the
*prehistoric mammothrusing preserved
cells from original creatures to con-
ceive a similar animal in the
laboratory.
"UNDER THE RIGHT conditions, in
18 to 20 months the world could see its
first artificial baby mammoth," said
Viktor Mikhelson, a Leningrad scientist
involved in the project.
The test-tube mammoth, scientists
admit, will be a difficult project. They
say they plan to use techniques similar
.'to those that created "test-tube babies"
in the West, benefiting from the almost
perfect condition of prehistoric animal
tissue preserved for centuries in the
frozen Soviet Far East.
The goal is to produce a living mam-
moth about 12 feet tall-a kind that
became extinct 10,000 years ago-for
scientific study. Scientists have not yet.
decided where they will keep their
mammoth if they succeed, but
Mikhelson said Monday that "this will
*:be the least of our problems."
"The problem is that so far, we
haven't found a satisfactory live
mammoth cell to start from,"
Mikhelson said.
MIKIHELSON SAID in an interview
this month that archeologists might

have been useable for such a project if
they had not been put into strong for-
maldehyde preservative solutions by
their discoverers.
Some frozen tissues discovered by
Soviet scientists have been up to 44,000
years old, according to the scientists.
The plan is to mate a preserved cell
from a male mammoth and one from a
modern-day female elephant in the
laboratory and implant the result in the
elephant, Mikhelson said. There is no
indication whether a preserved sperm

or an egg cell might be required for
such a project, rather than just any live
cell from a mammoth.
Mikhelson said that to find an ap-
propriate starting cell, a cytologist-an
expert in cell structure-will be added
to teams already organzied by the
Soviet Academy of Sciences to in-
vestigate findings of frozen prehistoric
creatures. The cytologist's job will be to
prevent destruction of live cells if they
are found.
