'U' To Open
New Center
On Genetics
The University's new Mammal-
ian Genetics Center, better knownj
as the "mouse house," will go into
operation next month, accordingj
to Prof. Morris Foster, newly-.
appointed director of the Center.
When the "mouse house" is ful-
ly stocked, it will house about 10,-
000 mice, representing 20 to 30 in-
bred pure genetic strains. The
Center will also serve as custodianI
for an additional 3,000 of the little
rodents as part of a national pool
for research in genetics, biology
and medicine.
Labs Renovated
The old vertebrate biology !ab
has been renovated to make room
for the new facility, one of three
such centers in the nation set up
by the National Institute of Health
of the United States Public Health
Service. The other two are at the
University of Kansas and the Uni-
versity of Miami, Fla.
The major function of the Cen-
ter, Prof. Foster said, will be re-
search and training of both under-
graduate and graduate students in
Part of Program
The Center is to become a part
of the University's well-integrated
genetics program,
The lab is expected to help meet
the critical shortage in research
of inbred strains of mice, especial-
ly those carrying genes for a par-
ticular scientifically useful trait.

whiskey he had brought with him,
drank from it, and smashed it on
