This was the proposition pre

Members of the panel were: Rich

University Physics department. .
Over 50 students joined the dis

look toward "Alternatives to
As introductory material the
men explained that the heredi
tary process is carried out through
the operation of genes and chrom
osomes. Damage or alteration to
the genes or chormosomes can
result in changed heredity.
In some instances, Sill said, the
heredity is changed to such an
extent that the individual is un
recognizable or even may die be
Changes in the genes or chom
osomes are known as mutations.
Some changes have major effects
while others only have minor ef
fects on the individual, he said.
Major effects are dominant and
minor effects recessive in the
genetical make-up, Sill said.
Alternating the genes through
atomic radiation whether deliber
atly or accidentally is a criminal
thing to do to the following gen-
eration, Jehle said. Present ef-,

These mutations can be passed
on indefinitely, he stressed. And
the closer a person be to the ex
plosion, the more genes will be
damaged. Thus, the greater
chance for deformity.
It has been shown that if both
parents carry damaged genes, 25
per cent of the individuals of the
following generations will have
something wrong with them, ei

Many problems now stand in
the way of sound handling of
such dangerous material as

Second, part of the problem is
moral, according to Dick Sill. If
we should augment an atomic

If we are to continue work in

something more of it.
