Scientists find
hair loss gene
WASHINGTON (AP) - Scientists have discovered a gene
hat causes a rare and extreme form of hair loss, a finding they
ay could one day point to better remedies for common heredi-
baldness.
esearchers found the gene - appropriately named "hair-
ess" -- by studying a Pakistani family plagued for generations
>y an inherited form of alopecia universalis. Sufferers are born
vithout eyelashes or eyebrows, quickly lose the hair on top of
he head and never grow any body hair.
lts a far cry from the more common male pattern baldness,
hat sends millions of men for hair-growth drugs or toupees.
But because the hairless gene regulates the same hair follicle,
fnd appears to switch on other hair-related genes, it provides a
ital clue to understanding hair growth and loss, said lead
esearcher Angela Christiano of Columbia University.
*;We're hoping this will lead us to the next gene and the next,"
aid Christiano, a dermatology professor who has begun test-
ube experiments to uncover how the hairless gene works.
"This is sort of like getting your foot in the door," agreed Dr.
)avid Valle, a medical geneticist and pediatrician at Johns
lopkins University, who praised the study, which is being pub-
ished tomorrow in the journal Science.
"We don't know too much about the hair follicle," explained

Judge excludes Lewinsky
evidence from Jones case

Daily Sports guys John Leroi, Nick Cotsonika and Fred Link
show off their diminishing hairlines.
Valle, whose patients include several teen-age girls with similar
severe baldness. "It's a chance to begin to understand the role of
the genes in controlling and regulating the function of the hair
follicle."
There are several forms of hereditary hair loss, but scientists
until now had been unable to find any of the genes responsible.
Christiano began her hunt in a large Pakistani family that had
inherited alopecia universalis - the rarest and most extreme
form of hair loss - that struck at least five generations, includ-
ing seven still-living patients.
Extensive DNA testing failed to find a possible gene, but sci-
entists did narrow the hunt to one region of Chromosome 8 that
appeared flawed.

LITTtL EROCK. Ark. A federal
judge yesterday excluded all evidence
relating to former White House aide
Monica Lexwinsky from the Paula Jones
sexual harassment lawsuit against
President Clinton.
Whitewater independent counsel
Kenneth Starr had asked U.S. District
Judge Susan Webber Wright to block all
pretrial gathering of evidence in the
Jones case because of the "inevitable
effect of disrupting" Starr's investiga-
tion into possible perjury, obstruction of
justice and other allegations tied to the
White House.
Wright rejected Starr;s broad request
but, in a written ruling, banned further
evidence gathering by Jones's lawyers
in "those matters that concern Monica
Lewinsky." The judge also ruled that
"any evidence" regarding Lewinsky
will be excluded when the Jones case
against Clinton comes to trial, sched-
uled to begin May 27.
Starr's 13-page motion, placed under
seal but obtained by The Washington
Post, complains that Jones's attorneys
had attempted to "shadow" government
criminal investigators by issuing sub-
poenas to witnesses being questioned
by Starr. "The White House, the
Department of Defense, the
Department of State and (U.N.)
Ambassador Bill Richardson" were all
subpoenaed by Jones's legal team this
week, the motion asserts, and the sub-
poena to the White House requests "all
documents" given to Starr's office.
The 24-year-old Lewinsky's taped
conversations with a friend reportedly
assert a sexual relationship with Clinton
and efforts to conceal that relationship

FACTS

A fact-finding mission'?
No problem. That's what
reporters do, you think, find
facts. So you decide to infil-
trate the student government
and tag along on its next fact-
finding mission. You walk
into the student union and go
up to the office. asking how
you can make arrangements.
"I don't hav e you in my
Franklin Planner." the student
government president says.
"and this is the Official
University Student
Government Two Hundred
Dollar Franklin Planner!"

"oh.' you say, "but I'm
with the Frat Party."
The president relents and
gives you her blessing to tag
along. The student-leaders are
going to Puerto Rico, she says,
to see how Caribbean universi-
ties misbalance their budgets.
"We are more alike than you
can imagine,'she says.
You agree. When you get to
Bermuda. the student-leaders
there talk and talk and talk
and talk. You are glad you
made your own travel
arrangements, because the
student-leaders made their
own, too. And since they
never get anything done. they

help get her a job at the Pentagon. with
Richardson's ,,UN. office or elsewhere.
Jones's suit contends that Clinton.
while still governor of Arkansas. made
a crude sexual advance to her when she
was a low-level state employee. Her
lawyers see lewinsky's case as poten-
tially corroborating a pattern of sexual

misconduct by Clinton.
"The court acknowledges that evi-
dence concerning Monica Lewinsky
might he relevant to the issues in this
(.ones) case." Wright wrote in her
order. "The court determines, however.
that it is not essential to the core issues
in this case.
'The presidents legal team hailed the
decision as a major victory that will
make it much easier to win the Jones
case.
