Genetics Work
Lands Prize
A University graduate has
been named one of three re
cipients of the 1958 Nobel
Prize for Medicine.
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.
Wisconsin Prof.
The other half of the prize
went to Joshua Lederberg,
professor at the University of
Wisconsin for his discoveries
concerning "genetic combina
tion and organization of the
genetic material of bacteria."
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.
Coffee Hour
Coffee and cider will be
served in the Union lounge
immediately following the Sat
urday football game.
Kvervone is invited to at
tend the Coffee Hour.
