Lewis Says
"Will Attend'
Peace Talks
But Steel Strike
Still Stalemated
Pittsburgh--(P)-A meager two-
word message from John L. Lewis
accepting a government peace
conference call primed hopes for
settlement of the 18-day old coal
But the steel walkout followed
an uneventful course with nobody
doing anything aimed at ending
the nationwide shutdown.

"WILL ATTEND" was the
brusque answer United Mine

summons by the Federal Media-

Lewis and coal operators will go
to Washington for a conference

The operators agreed earlier
to take part in the Government's

shutdown. The Federal Media-

happy solution to the steel dis-

Truman Says

Russian Atom


Plan Unlikely
WASHINGTON-- M-President
Truman said yesterday he doubts
that Russia is cooking up an ac-
ceptable atomic bomb control
The Soviets will make a new
arms control statement Tuesday
at the United Nations.
THE BIG question is: Will they
have a new slant on atomic bomb
control now that an atomic ex-
plosion in Russia has been re-
ported by the U.S.?
Truman wasn't excited by this
prospect. A newsman told him
at his news conference that it
was reported that Russians were
about to make "some new pro-
posal for disarmament." He ask-
ed if Truman would look for-
ward to hearing about it.
Not necessarily, Truman replied.
He said any number of proposals
had been made that could not be
accepted and this will probably be
in the same class.

Tracers Seen
Opening New
sotopes Prove Boon
To Research-Jones
"Practically unlimited" poten-
tialities in cancer research through
the use of radioactive tracers were
predicted last night by Prof. Har-
din Jones at the first public meet-
ing of the 1949-50 Michigan Me-
norial-Phoenix Project.

cal physics at the Donner Labora-
tory, University of California,
Prof. Jones discussed "Contribu-
tions of Isotopic Studies to the
Study of Dynamic Metabolism."
fields have for the first time pro-
duced "significant differences" in
reactions of normal animals and
those with a small tumor, Prof.
Jones pointed out.
Some of these tests show a
turnover of radioactive tracers
in tumored or pregnant animals
two to five times greater than
that of normal animals, he con-
Such tests now show a greater
rate of cell growth in such animals
all over the body, he said. Even-
tually, scientists will be able to
detect cancer in early stages with-
out getting it confused with pos-
sible pregnancy, he predicted.
EXPLAINING the process used
in such experiments, Prof. Jones
Said that first of all a synthetic
body substance is made radioac-
tive and fed into the animal.
These tracers make it pos-
sible for scientists to determine
the rate of breakdown of body
substances and distinguish be-
tween normal growth and break-
down and that of a cancerous
Two of seven substances already
tested were used up at a different
rate in animals with cancer than
in healthy animals, he said.
Before the initiation of radio-
active tracers into the field of
cancer rseearch, there was often
no way of determining this steady
growth and breakdown, or "dy-
namic turnovcer," Prof. Jones
pointed out.

President of
Theta Xi Tells
Story of Fme
Theta Xi President Dick Rouse,
'50A, yesterday explained the epi-
sode which caused the University
Sub-Committee on Discipline to
add a whopping $100 to his frater-
nity's monthly light bill.
The committee ordered the re-
turn of various municipal lanterns
and street signs that had been col-
lected by Theta Xi's over a period
of time, and fined the fraternity
* * *
ROUSE TOLD The Daily that
the lanterns had been collected by
various members, principally last
summer, and that he had not
known of their presence in the
house until last week.
At that time Charles Clarke,
'51A, Theta Xi social chairman,
searching for decorations for a
Saturday night record dance,
happened on the idea of using
the lanterns as decorations.
Shortly after the dance had
ended and the guests had left, Ann
Arbor city police raided the house.
They seized the lanterns. The
Sub-Committee on Discipline then
summoned Rouse and Clarke to
Rouse emphasized that the tak-
ing of the lanterns was not spon-
sored or in any way encouraged
by his fraternity as a group. He
said individual members had, from
time to time, taken the lanterns
from various excavations and
placed them in their own rooms.

"Reporters are constantly

I have to give all of them the

any comment until the conclu-

In light of the fact that a con-
