BOSTON (AP)- A synthetic hor-
mone shows promise of becoming the
first effective male birth control
medicine, researchers say. But first
they must overcome a dismaying side
The medicine, a powerful form of a
natural body chemical, dramatically
reduced sperm production when tested
for the first time as a birth control
method on healthy men.
THE STUDY at Vanderbilt Univer-
sity was published in today's issue of
the New England Journal of Medicine.
Dr. David Rabin, who directed the
research, said five more years of work
will be .needed before doctors know if
the drug is safe and effective.
The medicine is called LHRH-
luteinizing hormone-releasing hor-
In Rabin's study the drug was given
in daily injections, but other resear-
chers found it also is effective when
taken as nose drops. It cannot be taken
in pill form.
IN RABIN'S STUDY eight men- all
of whom planned later to undergo
vasectomies- took LHRH for six to 10
weeks. Their average sperm counts fell
from 94 million to 12 million per
The drug also diminished production
of testosterone, the male sex hormone,
and five of the men became impotent.

There's one side to life on North Campus-the blissful af-
ternoons spent studying beside the music school pond, the
calm walks amid the towering pine trees. But then there's
,another side to North Campus life-waiting for the bus.
By now, most residents of North Campus have encoun-
tered what some believe to be that formidable opponent, the
North Campus bus. According to .:North Campus com-
muters, both time and patience is required to live with life on
41 e two bus lines, which shuttle students who live in the
University's largest dormitory, Bursley Hall, or in the
University's sprawl of apartments for married students.
BUT, THOUGH University officials say there are the same
number of buses running and the same number of riders as
last year, students who live on North Campus echo the annual
complaints about the service.
"I waited for four buses at 8:45 a.m. last week one day, and
when they came, each was full," said Lisa Mitchell, a junior
in the School of Music. "But, I really haven't had a problem."
Mike Marchyak, another North Campus resident, said,
"They've (the buses) been a lot more crowded every mor-
ning, and especially at lunch. They don't seem to be running
as often this year."
SOME STUDENTS, such as Paul Gross, seem to have
analyzed the situation rather thoroughly. "One basic
problem is that it seems like there is a three-to-one ratio of
Bursley buses to Northwood buses during peak hours during
the day. It takes me 25 minutes to get to North Campus. It
should take me 15 minutes to get there," he said.
"Weekday buses are all right, (but) on the weekends, the
buses are packed like sardine cans. I've run from bus stop to
bus stop in hopes of one thatisn't full," said sophomore Bruce
