FOWLER WORRIED ABOUT REAPPORTIONMENT PROBLEMS IN 1983 GUBERNATORIAL ELECTION BATON ROUGE --- Problems oc- curring because of reapportionment at the local level has Commissioner  of Elections Jerry Fowler worried about the 1983 gubernatorial elec- tion. "At the present time there are several parishes in the state in which the police jury, parish council or justice of the peace and constable reapportionment plans are still pend- ing United States Justice Depart- ment approval," Fowler explained. Caddo, Madison. St. Helena. and St. Mary parishes are under restrain- ing orders on their police jury or parish council elections pending further developments. Some par- ishes are qualifying candidates either under the old plan because the new reapportionment plan has not been approved or under the new plan which is still pending approval. The police jury or parish council reapportionment plans also affect the election of the parish executive committees, both democratic and republican. Except in Jefferson and Orleans parishes, the law provides that committee members are elected the same as members of the parish governing authority. Orleans parish committee has their election a the City of New Orleans municipal election. Numerous changes have occurred in wards, districts, and precinct lines because of reapportionment. These changes affect all offices not elected parishwide. "Several of the registrars of voters in the state are in the process of updating their registration records according to the new reapportion- ment plans," Fowler added. In addi- tion, the Louisiana state senate and house of representatives will have their first election under their new reapportionment plan. The demo- cratic and republican state central committees will also be elected from the new house of representatives districts. "My office is redoubling its efforts to minimize any problems and confu- sion that may occur on election day because of reapportionment changes by working closely with local offi- cials," Fowler concluded. iPIE PUINHA i UUi.. 1 lP'll: SLU prof studies genetics at Harva New advances in molecular biology and genetics may have a revolution- ary impact on society in the near future, according to a SLU microbi- ologist. E,h', Ed'vard Nelson, an SLJ2kprofes- sor who recently completed a cOurse at the Harvard Medical School on "Microbial and Molecular Genetics: Biotechnical Advances." believes that portions of plant, animal or human cells taken for the purpose of developing new bacteria could have a variety of economic, health and medical influences on society Nelson gained most of his informa- tion from the study, attended by over 150 physicians and Ph Ds from throughout the United States, in- cluding Dr, David Baltimore. a Nobel Prize winner in medicine. Southeastern funded Nelson's partic- ipation through a Title III grant received by the university, part of which is to upgrade science instruc- tion. "Genetic engineering is here and the impact of the technique on society is certain to be great.'" Nelson said. Nelson reported that most of the work being clone involves taking genes, or DNA pieces from plant, animal or human cells, inserting them into a vector, or another piece of DNA called a virus, and using this virus to carry the DNA into a bacterium. The bacteria which then carry the foreign DNA will produce large amounts of the protein that the gene codes for. "'The process has already been used with some human products that are used in medical treatment, such as insulin, interferon and growth hor- mone." Nelson said. "'By producing these oroducts in bacteria, the cost should be greatly reduced. In the near future, many more new advan- ces in molecular biology and prod- ucts will be synthezied in this way." There are many other potential uses for the findings in the genetics field. Some scientists are working on pro- ducing new types of bacteria which will fix nitrogen and make the soil more fertile without the addition of expensive fertilizer, which could have a tremendous impact on world food production. Other microorganisms developed to degrade tants and screen for compounds. "In the area of medicine, someday see vaccines for such as gonnorhea, he and even the common to these new technic said. "'Also. human and cancer will be easier nose '" Nelson said that there potential dangers new techniques. ly being conducted under trois because of fear that substances, accidentally the laboratory, could cause an epidemic.
