STOCKHOLM, Sweden - An
American biochemist won the 1984
Nobel Prize in chemistry yesterday for
research that led to safer medication.
The prize in physics was awarded to an
Italian-Dutch team of nuclear
physicists who found particles scien-
tists had sought for 50 years.
The chemistry prize, given to R.
Bruce Merrifield, 63, of New York's
Rockefeller University, gave
Americans a 26-year record of at least
one Nobel Prize a year. The United
States has won or shared more than
half the three annual Nobel science
prizes since World War II.
MERRIFIELD was honored for work
he did in the 1950s and 1960s, developing
a new method of synthesizing amino-
acid compounds called peptides, which
has revolutionized the manufacture of
drugs such as high blood pressure
medicine, insulin, and other hormone
medications, and has been used in gene
Merrifield found that by attaching
amino acid chains - peptides or
proteins - to a long plastic molecule,
the smaller chains would multiply.
The discovery revolutionized organic
chemistry, allowing simpler and faster
production of synthetic peptides, that in
turn led to medicines with fewer har-
mful side effects. The academy called
the Merrifield method "a completely
new approach to organic synthesis .. .
It has greatly stimulated progress in
biochemistry, molecular biology,
pharmacology and medicine."
The Royal Swedish Academy of
Sciences gave the Nobel Prize in
Physics to two scientists from the
European laboratory CERN, Carlo
Rubbia, 50, of Italy and Simon van der
Meer, 59, of the Netherlands. They
discovered the W-weak and Z-zero
subatomic particles which are believed
to carry one of nature's four basic for-
ces - the "weak and interaction force"
- in much the same way that photons
The discovery brought the 13-
member nation CERN onto a par with
labs in the traditionally stronger United
States, developed its reputation as a top
center of scientific engineering and
gave it the lead in research on sub-
atomic particles, described as the basic
building blocks of nature.
"I think it indeed has shown that 30
years of effort, of hard work, have
resulted in the fact that now Europe is
fully competitive and at the same
levels as other parts of the world," said
Herwig Schopper of West Germany, the
director of CERN.
The awards were announced one day
after the Norwegian Nobel Committee

in South Africa, has been abletto achieve
some success in opposing the white
government, while many leaders
before him have been put down by the
ALTHOUGH the Nobel Prize is a big
step, Mazrui said there is still a long
way to go in the struggle for liberation.

Desmond Tutu of South Africa the win-
ner of the 1984 Nobel Peace Prize for his
non-violent fight against apartheid.
This year's last Nobel, the economics
award, will be announed today. It was
added in 1968 to the original five Nobels
endowed in the will of Alfred Nobel, the
Swedish inventor of dynamite.

Seifert won the Literature Prize last

and that is a tragedy," Mazrui said.
"The only other areas in which blacks
have won Nobel Prizes for peace have
been race relations when they are
called upon to be patient. So while I
wouldn't want to detract from Desmond
Tutu's triumph . . . it is as much a
reminder of black deprivation as it is a
recognition of a particular black's

Nobel Peace Prize will lend some
amount of support to the black
movement in South Africa.

percent in 1971 to 36 percent in 1982.
