Dr. George Wells Beadle, a native of Wahoo, Nebr., and his colleague, Edward Law rie Tatum will receive one half of the $41,250 prize for their studies in genetics which could lead the way to a cure for cancer.

Dr. Beadle, currently at Oxford University in England, is a professor at the Kerch- koff Laboratories ot Bioiogy, Pasedena California. In 1949, the University awarded hira an honorary doctorate degree Beadle and Tatum working wth bread mold, altered sci ence's entire concept of genes. They were no longer abstract units of heredity, but actual livng things. Gene Control Rv bombarding their bread mold with radiation, Beadle and Tatum destroyed the power of mold cells to pro duce certain amino acids. This led them to the idea that genes might be controlled to prevent them from grow ing into harmful cancer cells. Beadle grew up on a farm near Wahoo and graduated from the University in 1928. Dr. Raymond Poole, former ' head of the University's bo tany department, remembers his former pupil as an excel lent student, quiet, unassum ing and serious minded." Beadle continued his study In Botany over the opposition of his father, who wanted the boy to take over the family farming operation.
