O WNFALL OF DDT:

Science Breeds Super Roach

* * * *

By RICH THOMAS
A new strain of super cock-
roaches may creep into the kitch-
ens and bakeries of America
sometime in the not too distant
future.
The new roach will not derive
its strength through some other-
world parentage, b u t rather
through its ability to withstand
the deadly whiffs of DDT which
today's householders puff its way.
** *
THIS STARTLING bit of insec-
ticana was discovered recently by
research entomologists at the Vir-
ginia Experiment Station at
Blacksburg, Va.
Workers there have learned
that cockroaches, like some
strains of the household fly, can
become resistant to DDT. So
resistant, in fact, that seventh
generation roaches bred at the
station can even swim in a le-
thal mixture of DDT and sur-
vive.
The breeding process itself is a
hopped up application of Darwin's
theory of survival of the fittest,
according to U. N. Lanham, in-
structor in the University's zoology
department.
* , *
A GROUP of cockroaches are
herded together and sprayed with
a "sub-maximal" dose of DDT,
Lanham said. Most of the bugs
are killed, but the strongest
roaches survive and are allowed
to breed.
The offspring of the remain-
ing cockroaches are then given
the same treatment as their
parents, only the DDT dose is
strengthened slightly to make
'U' Research
Group Will
Visit Japan
A faculty member and three
students from the University's
Center for Japanese Studies will
study Japanese Society at the
center's field station at Okayama,
Japan.
Prof. Mischa Titiev, of the an-
thropology department, Mrs. Ti-
tiev and their son will sail from
San Francisco, Calif., Tuesday.
Prof. Titiev will study the influ-
ence of kinship on social structure
and Mrs. Titiev will do research on
Japanese folk music.
Forrest Pitts, Grad., will study
the elements that make a high
standard of living in the densely'
populated Inland Sea area around
Okayama.
David Wheatley, Grad., will do
research on the influences of pop-
ulation growth on Japanese com-
munities and David Plumer, '53,
will serve as research technician
at the field station.
All of the researchers will take
part in the station's general
study of the effect of western civi-
lization on Japan's folk culture.
Gifts of $7,000
Received by 'U'
Two gifts totaling $7,000 have
been given to the University by
the John Harper Seeley Founda-
tion, University Secretary Herbert
Watkins announced yesterday,
One will be used for the John
Harper Seeley Fund for Research
in the business administration
school and the other for a gradu-
ate fellowship in the school for
the year 1951-52.

Students in
Theft Case
Ask Hearing
A preliminary hearing on break-
ing and entering charges was de-
manded in municipal court yes-
terday by two 26-year-old Uni-
versity students.
The pair, Paul F. Kluth, Grad.,
of Berwyn, Ill., and Felix Miel-
zynski, '51, of Santa Barbara,
California, were picked up by po-
lice early Wednesday in connec-
tion with. the burglary Tuesday
night of a N. University drug
store.
They are slated to appear for
the hearing, which will determine
whether or not there is enough
State's evidence to hold them for
trial, on March 1.
* * *
BOND OF $2,500 was set for
Kluth by Municipal Judge Fran-
cis L. O'Brien, while Mielsynski
was confined to the County Jail
in default of posting a $5,000
bond.
Kluth was arrested after John
Alexander, a co-owner of the
store, identified him as the
"suspicious man" seen hanging
around shortly before the burg-
lary attempt about 11:30 p.m.
Tuesday.
Police said Kluth implicated
Mielzynski as the one who broke
into the store while he acted as
"lookout." Mielzynski denied be-
ing in the vicinity at the time.
A patrolman making a routine
check of his beat almost walked
into the burglary attempt. He dis-
covered the rear door to the store
open and an Army musette bag
loaded with loot nearby.
Two other University students
informed him that they had pass-
ed the pair on the street minutes
before discovering the store had
been entered.

-Daily-Malcolm Shatz
SECRET WEAPON?-A slightly exaggerated view of a member of
the newly bred cockroach species. Although the most hearty of
these roaches have survived repeated DDT attacks, scientists are
confident that an insecticide can be developed to put an end
to them.

*

up for the new generation's in-
creased immunity.
The process is repeated again
and again until you've got a cock-
roach who can be dunked into
DDT as neatly as a donut into
coffee.
THIS SAME process can easily
be repeated in nature, Lanham
said, if DDT is used as the sole
control.
Will the roaches ever over-
run the United States kitchens
like the grasshoppers over ran
our wheat farms in the dusty
1930's?
Probably not, Lanham com-

mented. "We have enough other
insecticides to kill off the cock-
roaches which become immune to
DDT for some time to come."
When those run out, someone
has suggested that the hammer
is still an effective weapon in bug
control.
