Truckers disrupt food
By The Associated Press
Food shipments to some Eastern
cities were curtailed yesterday by a
truckers strike that has erupted into
warfare on the highways with more
than 300 trucks damaged, one driver
slain and 27 people injured.
"It looks like war out there," said'
Chief Deputy Edmory Rush in Colleton
County, S.C., who was urging sheriff's
departments in surrounding counties to
step up patrols of major truck routes.
"We don't want this to be a bloodbath."
Officials at the giant Hunts Point
Terminal Market in New York City said
shipments of produce slowed to a
trickle after remaining near normal
during the first two days of the strike by
the Independent Truckers Association.
"Today it's dead," said Tom White,
deputy manager of the market. Mike
Pfluger of the U.S. department of
Agriculture station at the market said
wholesale prices had already jumped
as much as 30 percent.
Pfluger said supplies of beans,
cauliflower, celery, eggplant, green
peppers and tomatoes hve dropped. He
noted that 70 percent to 75 percent of the
area's fruit and produce arrives by
Some trucking companies in Canada
have suspended shipments to the United
States because of the violence.
"A load of potatoes is not worth a
life," said Gary Hatfield, a potato
broker in Hartland, 'New Brunswick.
But Terry Rodes, prsident of the New
England Produce Center just outside
Boston said, "So far, everyting is
moving on schedule."
Mike Parkhurst, head of the
association which clais to represent
30,000 of the nation's 100,000 indepen-

their own rigs, called the strike Monday

College of Cardinals
VATICAN CITY (AP) - Eighteen
new princes of the Roman Catholic
Church, resplendent in red vestments,
became cardinals yesterday and were
embraced by Pope John Paul II as
symbols of the international faith..
The primate of John Paul's native
Poland, the archbishop of Chicago, and
the first cardinal resident in the Soviet
Union were among the priests from 16
nations accepted into the College of
THE 21/2-HOUR consistory - or
gathering of the top-ranking church
body - increased the number of
Eastern bloc cardinals from five to nine.
and gave three countries their first
cardinals - Marxist-ruled Angola,
predominantly Buddhist Thailand, and
the Ivory Coast.
"With the steady increase of the
worldwide function of the College of
Cardinals, the need was felt to ensure
that it was matched ever more ac-
curately by the college's actual com-
position," the pope ,said in Italian
during a public ceremony in the Paul VI
In a private gathering beforehand, 48
of the 120 incumbent cardinals met
privately in the ornate Consistory Hall
to hear John Paul read out the names of
the new cardinals who waited outside.

Nordby, executive assistant to Univer-
isity President Harold Shapiro, said
i there was nothing in the Regents' by-
~laws which would conflict with
CROWFOOT said he is comfortable
with the three-year position, and he
said he understands the situation
surrounding his unusual appointment.
He added that he would like to guide the
school to a point where a full nationwide
search can be conducted.
That point may be visible in the
future, but the coming weeks will be
traumatic for the school. Frye's action
on the proposed budget cut will be a
final decision unless the Regents
question it at their next meeting.
SNR students are talking to in-
dividual Regents and staging protests
on campus to gather support for the
school in the final phase of the review.
Crowfoot said the students have been
"a posititve force in the review.
They've just been incredibly supportive
of the college." he said.
"I certainly understand their concern
and interests," Frye said of the studen-
group filed into the modern audience
hall to cheers from 8,000 flag-waving
relatives and friends who had traveled
from all over the world.
John Paul, the first non-Italian pope
in more than 450 years, has continued a
trend begun by Pope John XXIII to in-
ternationalize the church.
Cardinals elect the pope and serve
as his "senate," although they only ad-
vise. Membership of the college in-
creased to 138, but only 120 are under
the age of 80 and eligible to vote.

ruled African nation of Angola.
After the address, John Paul greeted
the new cardinals in their own
languages, and they approached the
stage and recited vows of obedience.
John Paul and the new cardinals later
celebrated Mass at St. Peter's
Basilica before 25,000 people, and the
pontiff placed a gold ring on the right
hand of each cardinal.
SAN DIEGO (AP) - A Japanese
researcher is fighting the University of
California over ownership of a poten-
tially valuable cancer teatment that
was developed at the school using cells
from the reseracher's own cancer-
The researcher and his father, who
owns a research firm at Osaka, Japan,
have some of the antibody-producting
cells because the son took them from a
University of California-San Diego lab
to treat his mother. That happened a
year ago; the university kept it quiet
and continued its tests.
WHEN THE CASE was made public
last week by the San Diego Union, the
controversy seemed to center on
whether patients who donate tissue
samples should own part of the resear-
Unviersity officials said Dr. Hideaki
Hagiwara of Osaka took the cells
without permission, claiming his
family owned part of the new cell line
because tissue from his mother's cervix
was used to develop it.
But now, Hagiwara and his father say
the family's claim to part ownership of
the "monoclonal antibody" is based on
research Hagiwara did to develop it
while a postdoctoral fellow at the
MONOCLONAL antibodies are one of
the most promising avenues in fighting
some types of cancer because they
produce antibodies specific to certain
types of cells, such as cancer cells.The
antibodies can seek out and destroy
tumor cells without harming normal
tissue. The antibodies are produced by
"hybridoma" cells created by fusing
anti-body producing spleen cells with
long-living cancer cells.
Nearly all previous hybridomas have
combined human cancer cells and
spleen cells from mice, which have
limited success because patients often
reacted to the alien mouse protein.
