White Says Lower Life
May Be Created in Lab
By MIKE WOLFF
The low and simple forms of life
may be created by artificial syn-
thesis in the laboratories of the
future, if t1he opinions of Prof. Les-
lie A. White, chairman of the an-
thropology department, prove cor-
According to Prof. White, the
difficulties confronting the artifi-
cial synthesis of life are probably
only technical ones that might be
overcome in the future.

CALLING THE problem merely
one of "rearranging already ex-
isting elements," the scientist add-
ed that the synthesis of organic
chemical compounds was once
thought impossible but has now
At present many scientists are
attempting the synthesis of life
by trying to duplicate photo-
synthesis-the process by which
plants turn the sun's rays into
energy and food--according to
Prof. White was not willing; to
make any bets that future gener-
ations of humans would be born
in test tubes, however. "The high-
er forms of life are not formed by
synthesis but by evolutionary pro-
cesses that take millions of years,"
Prof. Alfred H. Stockard, direc-
tor of the Biological Station, felt
that while not impossible, there
were astronomical chances against
creating these genetic controls.
Without these controls, the de-
velopment into human beings
would be improbable, he said.
The requirements for Foreign
Service officers have been liberal-
ized, a State Department bulletin
The minimum age limit has been
lowered to 20 and the previously
stringent foreign language require-
ment may be passed after an ap-
plicant is already in the Depart-
ment's Foreign Service Training
In this way candidates will be
able to learn languages abroad in
the countries where they are spo-
All University students who are
American citizens and between 20
and 30 years old are qualified to
apply for the diplomatic positions.

WONDER PRODUCT SELLS:
Chlorophyll Excites Advertising World
By BOB JAFFEE.
For centuries nobody but the
cow paid particular attention to
Now after all these years the
business world is turning an en-
vious eye to the green pastures
which might prove to furnish the
biggest boon in advertising his-
tory. The source of all the excite-
ment is the new wonder product
chlorophyll, the material that
makes plants green.
* * *
THE FIRST TIME this green
gold was incorporated into a com-
mercial offering was as a home
deodorizer. Since then, through
widespread advertising campaigns
and scientific ballyhoo, chlorophyll
has oozed its way into dozens of
other products promising to do
everything from banishing B.O.
and halitosis to restoring hair.
On the retail counters now are
deodorizing lozenges and tablets,
chewing gum, mouthwash, sham-
poo, impregnated toilet tissue,
toothpaste and dog food to help
keep Rover smelling nice-pro-
ducts all containing the magic
They've even come up with shoe
insoles doused with chlorophyll to
keep feet smelling fresh.
Commenting on this recent
chlorophyll frenzy, Professor
Edmund Wooding, advertising
instructor in the journalism de-

Attend Big Ten
A delegation of five, including
the president elects of both the
Interfraternity Council and Pan-
hellenic left yesterday for the Big
Ten IFC Conference, in Madison,
The five University representa-
tives are Pete Thorpe '53, IFC pre-
sident; Diane Harris, '53, Panhel
president; Assistant to the Dean of
Students Joseph Fee; Mark Sand-
ground, '52, retiring I]FC secretary;
and another representative of Pan-
The only item formally sched-
uled on the conference agenda, ac-
cording to Thorpe, is a discussion
of Stewards Associations.
This may be of particular im-
portance, however, since one of
the major planks of Thorpe's
election platform was the forma-
tion of an IFC Stewards Associa-
tion to raise food purchasing ef-
fieciency and cut rising costs.
A conference with Univer-
sity authorities has been tenta-
tively scheduled for next week to
discuss the possibilities of such an
Workshops in general problems
confronting fraternities will also
be held, Thorpe declared.

"Business is always on the look-
out for some new gimmick, some
hypodermic needle with which to
innoculate the public, a public
which has been made receptive to
the glitter presented to them by
the advertising industry."

"the people are always searching
for a new nostrum, a new quick
and easy cure of human social
problems, whether those problems
be gingivitis, halitosis or falling
