THE CATALINA ISkANDER OCEAN SERPENT? SEAWEED SAUCE! JUST A POOR SEAL Just a poor seal with a sore paw, trying to get along. And that, says George P. I~wis of Santa Monica, is all there is to the latest sea serpent report. Yesterday V. W. Threadgold, an oil truck driver, vowed that he had seen a thirty-foot, coal-black monster tour- ing up and down the ocean off the Malibu road.

It appears probable that Dr. Muller's work will bc of I,:'actical im- 1)ortance to human life, plant and ani- mal breeding.) (By Science Service) X-ray treatments of certain types may be laying a terrible curse on the descendants of patients now receiving thenm. Horrible defects and malforma- tions may be visited upon their chil- dren far beyond the scriptural third and fourth generations. Yet the same kind of X-ray treat- ments can speed tip a hundred-fold the rate of the eot'ltrolled evolutionary processes used by breeders to produce improved kinds of animals and plants. This sensational paradox of science may "be looked to for hitherto little suspected perils in the field of medi- cine, and for revolutionary effects in agriculture, if the findings made by Prof. H. J. Muller of the University of Texas, on tiny fruit flies, hold true for other living things. It has been proved in his experi- ments that in the germ-cells of the flies, X-rays affect the little particles responsible for heredity in much the same way as a shot-gun fired at a pile of pebbles would affect the pebbles. The hereditary particles beconte per- maneutly transformed in all sorts of unexpected ways and the sudden changes known as "mutations" are pro- duced in them. , Not all of them mutate at once;, Prof. Muller explains, but here one, there another, they change in quite a. random fashion. Sometimes also they are dislodged into new arrangerrmnts.. Since these hereditary particles, which are known as "genes," are handed Williams, Mrs. Earl Smith. Lewis.
