Humans
subj ects

LOS ANGELES (AP)-Genetic engineering was
used on humans for the first time, as far is known, by
a UCLA doctor who tried to cure a fatal inherited
blood disease by adding a new gene to the living cells
of two patients, university officials said yesterday.
The historic and controversial procedure was
carried out in Israel and Italy by Dr. Martin Cline. It
was met with official concern that he was moving too
quickly from the animal experiments that won scien-
tific praise last April.
THE RESULTS of the procedure were reportedly
inconclusive. After three months there was no in-
dication the new genes, inserted into defective cells of
the patients' bone marrow, were producing normal
blood cells.
Both patients were reported alive and doing well,
although the treatment apparently had no effect on
the disease, called beta thalassemia major. Victims
are unable to produce normal hemoglobin, a blood
molecule that carries the oxygen needed by all
tissues.

UCLA's human subjects committee on July 22
rejected Cline's proposal to try the treatment on
campus with victims of sickle cell anemia, an
inherited blood disorder that primarily affects
blacks.
THE REJECTION "was not because of risk," said
Albert Barber, UCLA vice chancellor for research.
"It was because the committee felt there was a need
for doing a bit more animal research for validation of
the scientific basis of the experiment."
Cline won acclaim last spring when he and his
UCLA colleagues successfully transferred new genes
into bone marrow cells of living mice. He said then,
"I would say clinical human trial could begin in three
years."
The two patients were treated about three months
later.
The procedure, as developed in animal research,
involves removing a small amount of bone marrow
from the patient. An appropriate gene is snipped
from cells from another source.

PARIS (AP)-President Valery
Giscard d'Estaing and his premier took
the offensive yesterday to denounce
attacks against Jews and proclaim the
ity of France in opposing racism and
anti-Semitism.
Accused by his critics of keeping
silent too long, Giscard d'Estaing in a
five-minute television address
reassured France's 650,800 Jews that
the nation will stand united to "face the
threat that is throwing us back to the
hideious germs of intolerance,
terrorism and racism."
Premier Raymond Barre told a
eked National Assembly "the entire
rench. nation stands beside . . . our
Jewish compatriots in these tragice
circumstances."
BARRE S'ATHINGLY denounced
leftist politicians and commentators
who have accused the government of
dragging its heels in the fight against

anti-Semitic terror, saying, "These
allegations are defamatory and scan-
dalous."
The top-level statements came as
police Eniounced their first lead in the
investigation of a bomb explosion
Friday that killed four people outside a
Paris synagogue.
They said they had identified the
owner of a motorcycle that was driven
by a man who witnesses said placed a
package outside the synagogue minutes
before the powerful bomb exploded.
THEY DID NOT release his name or
other details.
Denouncing the synagogue bombing
as odious, Giscard d'Estaing declared,
"The criminal acts bring a painful echo
to the Jewish community of past even-
ts, of persecutions, deportations-aiidthe
systemataic massacre organized by the
Hitler regime. k
. "Concerning the French Jews, who

are French among other French, my
unchanging position and concern is that
they should feel they are treated as all,
others while conserving their religion
and personality as other French com-
munities have done."
THE FRENCH PRESIDENT said he
discussed the attack in depth during a
morning meeting of his cabinet.
He said he told Interior Minister
Christian Bonnet, who has been called
upon by Jewish organizations to resign
in the face of the rising anti-Semitism,
to convene a meeting Friday of
representatives from groups opposed to
racism. The groups would examine
proposals for safeguarding French
Jews.
Barre, in his speech to the assembly,
cautioned against reacting to violence
with violence and rejected charges that
the government had not done all it could
to prevent acts of terrorism.

THE POLICE HAVE been criticized
for failing to protect Jewish schools and
other institutions that have come under
attack in recent weeks, as well as for
not finding those responsible for the
synagogue bombing. Two police union
officials have reported that some 38
police officers are known members of
neo-fascist organizations.
A group calling itself the ' Jewish
Brigade claimed responsibility for
throwing acid in the face of an 84-year-
old man after breaking into his apar-
tment. In a telephone call to the Agence
France Presse news agency, the group
identified the man, Charles Bousquet,
as an official of a neo-Nazi newspaper.
He was seriously injured in the attack.
THE SON OF the victim said his
father had never been involved in anti-
Semitic activity and that the attackers
apparently confused him with a fascist
of the same name.

JAPANESE ESTIMA TE VALUE A T $3.8 MILLION:

Sunken treasur

' TOKYO (UPI)-Japanese treasure
hunters said yesterday they would
complete raising $3.8 billion in gold and
platinum treasure from the sunken
Czarist warship Admiral Nakhimov
claimed by Soviet Russia in the next
*w days.
If I the full cache is confirmed,. the
treasure would exceed by almost, 100
times the $40 million record cited by the
Guiness Book of Records for recovery
of undersea treasure. The previous
record was taken from the Spanish
galleon Nuestra Senora de Concepcion
off the Dominican Republic in 1978.
SOURCES CLOSE to the Tokyo-
based organizers of the operation,
Nihon Maritime Development Co., said
"more than 10 platinum-looking ingots"
lready had been salvaged in one dive

to the wreck. The company last month
said it pulled out a single 22-pound
platinum ingot worth $154,000.
Japanese business tycoon Ryoichi
Sasagawa, who financed the $15 million
hunt for the ship which sank three quar-
ters of a century ago, said 16 additional
ingots were lifted in a second dive, but
he did not say what they were made of.
The company said divers would sear-
ch the ship thoroughly in the next few
days and retrieve the rest of the cache.
Divers have confirmed at least 30 more
ingots are lodged in the 8,524-ton war-
ship, Nihon said.
THE VESSEL is 200 feet below the
surface five miles off the Japanese
island of Tsushima in the Korean Strait.
The cruiser sank during the Russo-
Japanese War of 1904-1905 and it was

e beig
believed to have been a "floating bank"
used by Czar Nicholas II during the
disastrous naval campaign.
Officials said it carried 16 platinum
bars, 48 gold bars and about 5,000 poun-
ds of British gold coins.
THE TREASURE'S current market
value is $3.8 billion, Nihon said.
The Soviet Union claims it is the
owner of the ship but Sasagawa has
said he would consider returning it only
if Moscow returned four Russian-held
North Pacific islands claimed by
Japan.ss
Foreign Ministry officials said the
d,

raised
basis of Moscow's claim was weak but
maintained Sasagawa could claim the
ship only after it had been proved that
neither Japan nor the Soviet Union
owned it.
Nihon officials said they would reveal
their new finds at a news conference
Saturday on Iki, Island in western
Japan, near the exploration site.
Past attempts to retrieve the
Nakihimov treasure failed because of
poor salvaging technology. Sasagawa
reportedly spent $15_ millio to acquire
a sophisticated deep-sea research craft
for the operation.

ANKARA, Turkey (AP)-Two con-
victed terrorists dropped through the
gallows floor here before dawn yester-
day in the first executions in Turkey in
eight years. The hangings were taken
as a grim warning from the new
military regime that terrorists are in
mortal danger if they resume their ac-
ivities.
One of the condemned men, a leftist,
put the rope around his own neck. and
shouted, "Damned be colonialism.
Damned be fascism," a Turkish
newspaper reported.
4 SOURCES SAID THAT, according to
Turkish tradition, male members of the
immediate families of the condemned
men watched their relatives die. The
terrorists' lawyers, the prosecutor, and
Moslem clergyman also watched as
rightist Mustafa Pehlivanoglu, 22, and
leftist Necdet Adali, 24, were hanged
inside Ankara's maximum security
prison.
Leftist-printed leaflets pledging cn-
tinued violence arrived in newspaper
offices yesterday.
Terrorism, which a month ago was
claiming two Turkish lives a day, has
abated since a military coup led by
Gen. Kenan Evren toppled Prime

Minister Suleyman Demirel and
dissolved Parliament Sept. 12. Forty-
- two people have died in political violen-
ce since then.
THE EXECUTIONS were the latest
in a string of military actions aimed at.
curbing terrorism. So far the generals
* have:
" Banned nearly all trade union ac-
tivity and rounded up thousands of
union activists, most of them con-
sidered radical rightists or leftists.
* Greatly expanded martial law
powers and threatened increased cen-
sorship of the press.
" Purged Istanbul and Ankara
municipal offices and professional
societies of all leftists.
e Rounded up and continued to hold
as many as 75. former lawmakers
associated with the extreme left or
right.
* Taken into custody virtually all of
the known terrorists from both left and
right who have not managed to flee the
country or go underground.
A Turkish official said yesterday the
nation's jails cannot accommodate any
more prisoners. More than 15 people
are on death row in Turkey, and their
hangings are expected soon.
