Two new faculty awards honoring
the University's finest researchers
will be presented for the first time
Vice President for Research Linda
Wilson created the awards in
response to a suggestion from the
Research Policies Committee to
honor senior researchers with a long
history of distinguished achievement,
and newer research faculty with
excellent career potential.
The "University Research Scien-
tist Award" will be presented to
Linda Wotring, a research scientist
with the College Of Pharmacy, for
her cancer research. The award
consisits of an honorary medlal and a
Partners Lloyd Johnston and
Jerald Bachman of the Institute for
Social Research will receive the
$1500 "University Senior Research
Scientist Lectureship Award" Ir
their work on patterns of adolescent
drug and alcohol use.
This award also includes an
invitation from the Wilson to give a
lecture at a ceremony next month for
newly promoted research sta ff.
Johnston and Bachman wil jointly
speak on "Drug Use in America:
Differen aTypes of Change, Different
"I think the initiation of this
award program by Vice President
Wilson is a good step toward provi-
ding more recognition for research
scientists in general on this
campus," Wotring said.
Johnston and Bachman have
shared the directorship of the Youth
and Social Issues Program of the
Institute for Social Research for
more than 20 years. They gathered
information about the ways in which
young people use drugs, alchohol,
and cigarettes and how the use
changes over the years.
The study is conducted in
nationwide survey of high school
seniors, Bachman said. The re-
searchers compare the results from
each senior class with preceeding
classes to see the ways in which use
of the substances varies. In addition,
the study follows the students into
their post-high school experiences
to explore the ways college,
marriage and military service affect
the use of drugs.
"Flow dIrug use is changing is
clearly of considerable interest to the
country at large... there is strong
evidence in recent years that young
people are much more likely to
abstain from or quit using drugs,"
The social indicator study has
been used by the federal government
for use in forming scientificp olicies
and prevention approaches. In
addition, the program has served as a
model for national drug use studies
in such countries-as Greece, Jamaica,
and the Netherlands.
Wotring researched the ways in
which anti-cancer drugs used in
chemotherapy kill human cells
cusing harmful side-effects such as
nausCa, hair loss, and decreased
susceptibility to infections.
Wotring serves on the scientific
review committee which reviews
proposals presented by scientists
working with the Medical School's
Cancer Center. She is also involved
in obtaining funding for the center
front the National Cancer Institute.

victimsin wheelchairs and bearing signs carrying messages like "Thank
God I'm Gay," marched yesterday to demand protection from
discrimination and more federal money for AIDS research and treatment.

crowd, carrying balloons and banners and wearing buttons and T-shirts,
stretched along the mall for more than a dozen blocks.

hate," she said.
Iran missile hits Iraq capital
Manama, Bahrain - Iraq resumed its aerial blitz of Iranian oil targets
yesterday, severely damaging a Liberian-flagged supertanker. Two
crewmen were reported killed and four others missing in the attack.
An Iranian surface-to-surface missile exploded in Baghdad; the Iraqi
capital, as Iran retaliated for the attack on tankers.
iwo Exocet missiles from Iraqi jets crashed into the engine room of
the 239,435-ton Rova, setting the ship ablaze, according to gulf-based
It was one of three raids announced by Iraq against tankers along the
Iranian coast since Saturday morning.
Both Baghdad and Tehran reported that a long-range Iranian missile was
fired into the Iraqi capital overnight but disagreed where it hit. Iran
claimed the missile struck a major military garrison, while Iraq said it
landed in a residential area, killing "numerous" civilians. No figures were
UAW may agree on contract
Chicago -- The United Auto Workers union yesterday began to clear
the final obstacles to offering a three-year General Motor Corp.
agreement for ratification by GM's 335,(X)0 active UAW workers.
The union's 23- member executive board, made up of national union
officers and the union's regional directors, was scheduled to vote last
night on the GM pact, which was nearly identical to a Ford Motor Co.
contract ratified Sept. 30.
The executive board, which approved the Ford pact unanimously,
was expected, to approve the GM agreement.
Once they obtain executive board approval, UAW President Owen
Bicher and Vice President Donald Ephlin can present the GM agreement
to the bargaining council, which consists of leaders and delegates from
(M's 150 UAW local unions.
Jackson dismisses rumors
Winterset, Iowa - Democratic presidential hopeful Jesse Jackson
yesterday dismissed "professional guessers" who doubt the viability of his
campaign and rejected speculation that his personal life is about to come
"I sense victory," he insisted.
On Jackson's second day as a formal candidate, the Des Moines Sunday
Register reported that his campaign was being dogged "by reports that
newspapers are about to break stories portraying him as a womanizer."
Jackson dismissed those rumors. "You stay your course and not.
dignify that which is irrelevant or not essential," Jackson said. "If' you
confront it and dignify it, you give it meaning. Experience will teach
you that people do not judge you on the home run you hit one day or the
error you make the other day, they judge you by your cumulative score.'

Loch Nessie eludes searchers
Drumnadrochit, Scotland - The biggest scientific search for the Loch
Ness monster ended yesterday with one purported monster picture de-
bunked, three sonar contacts showing something big in the murky waters
and the elusive Nessie still a legend.
The three-day expedition proved to be a mix of serious scientific in-
vestigation along with the biggest media extravaganza ever to hit the
tranquil shores of Loch Ness. About $1.8 million was spent on the
The hunt ended up focusing on three sonar blips, beyond the strength
of those given off by fish, in the middle of the 745-foot-deep loch.
Video film taken by the team meanwhile showed that the famed
"gargoyle head" photo of Nessie taken in 1975 by the Academy of
Applied Sciences in Concord, N.H., was really a rotting tree stump about
80 feet below the surface.
