    A New Species of Zeridoneus from Utah (Hemiptera: Lygaeidae)
    (1966-05) Reichart, Charles V.
    A new species of lygaeid insect, Zeridonens petersoni, is described from Utah. This brings to three the number of known species in this genus.

    Genetics of an L2 Venation Mutant in Drosophila Melanogaster. I, Mode of Inheritance and Expression
    (1966-05) Carlson, James H.
    The results indicate the mutant phenotype is recessive; high penetrance being due to the homozygosity of factors found on both the second and third chromosomes. Selection for high and low lines of expression was initiated and after nine generations of selection for a high line and six generations for a low line, a significant difference between the two was obtained. Analysis of crosses between high and low lines, Fi crosses, and backcrosses to both parental lines gives evidence for additive action of the polygenes controlling expression of the second longitudinal vein (L2).

    Chemical Reactions in Electrical Plasmas
    (1966-05) Mannella, Gene G.
    ome fundamental characteristics of chemical species in plasmas are reviewed to indicate the necessity for more complete description of the energy states involved. Bsaic modes of energy storage and their connection with the thermodynamics and chemical kinetics of these species are discussed

    Two New Species of Acmaeodera from Southeastern Texas (Coleoptera: Buprestidae)
    (1966-05) Knull, Josef N.
    Two new buprestids from Texas, Acmaeodera opuntiae sp. n. and A. starrae sp. n. are described. These insects were collected in Starr County, Texas, in a rolling upland area with a semi-arid environment.

    An Improved Method for Identification of Amino Acids in Descending Paper Chromatography
    (1966-05) Harrison, J. R.; Hayes, V. E.; Chua, Kian Eng
    A change in paper shape is described for use in descending paper chromatography. The "flask-shaped" paper provides greater reliability in the identification of amino acids in unknown mixtures. As many as three samples of unknown and/or known components can be run simultaneously on the same paper and under the same conditions. The method has been used by other investigators for the separation of pteridines and carbohydrates and has provided increased resolution and adaptibility.

    The Incorporation of C14-Labeled Phenylalanine, Tyrosine, and Glucose into Corn Roots
    (1966-05) Johnston, Harry H.
    Corn plants given C14 uniformly labeled phenylalanine, tyrosine and glucose, incorporated phenylalanine at the most rapid rate. The lignin fraction of the plant was found to have the greatest activity, especially in phenylalanine-labeled plants.

    A Light and Electron Microscope Survey of Algal Cell Walls. II, Chlorophyceae
    (1966-05) Dawes, Clinton J.
    Under the light and electron microscopes, the structure of the cell walls of members of the 11 orders in the Class Chlorophyceae, Division Chlorophyta, were examined. With regard to the microfibrillar component of the cell walls, five types of wall structure were distinguished: (A) an apparent lack of a micro fibrillar component (Volvocales, Dasycladales, and some members of the Siphonales), (B) the microfibrils are arranged in a reticulate pattern (Tetrasporales, Schizogoniales), (C) the microfibrils are oriented in an axial direction (Ulotrichales, Oedogoniales, Zygnematales, and some members of the Siphonales), (D) the microfibrils are parallel to one another and arranged in lamellae (Ulvales), and (E) the microfibrils are parallel to one another, arranged in lamellae, and at right angles to the microfibrils in the lamellae above and below forming the crossfibrillar pattern (Cladophorales, Siphonocladales). Members of the Ulvales were found to have a cell wall similar to that of the brown algae while a member of the Schizogoniales, Prasiola, was found to have a cell wall similar to that of the red algae. A discussion of the taxonomic implications of cell wall structure is included.

    The Use of the Symposium in Science Education
    (1966-05) Perry, T. Edward
    The range of activities available for student participation in Mentor Ridge Junior High School's science club has been broadened to include the presentation of research in the form of papers before critical groups. Scientific meetings were devised similar in format to professional Academy meetings. Two symposia were held at the school, one in 1963, another in 1964. The sessions were found to be adaptable to educational use and are offered as supplementary or alternative to existing co-curricular programs. The symposia fostered scientific inquiry and a critical attitude toward scientific research, provided highly realistic settings for scientific communication, were easy to organize, and offered a variety of experiences communicating the results of research. The greatest disadvantage was the limited number of participants accommodated, though this defect may be overcome. Five days seemed the best length of time to run the program.

    Some Chemical Reactions in Silica Gels II. Formation of Crystals of a Basic Mercuric Chloride, HgCl2-2HgO1
    (1966-05) Kurz, Philip F.
    This investigation was concerned with a study of some factors which control the formation of HgCU^HgO crystals in silica gels. It is possible to control the size, shape, color, rate of growth, and distribution of crystals of this basic salt by varying the initial alkalinity of the gel, the silica content of the gel or the rate of infusion of HgCl2 into the gel. The level in a gel at which HgCU^HgO crystal start to grow can be controlled readily by adding H+ to the HgCU used as external reactant. Evidence is presented to show that the basic salt is HgCl2-2Hg0 and not a more basic or a less basic mercuric chloride.

    A Classification of Extraterrestrial Spherules Found in Sedimentary Rocks and Till
    (1966-05) Lougheed, M. S.
    Extraterrestrial spherules have been recovered from Pleistocene drift and from more ancient sedimentary rocks. Modern deposits also contain spherules, but, because a significant percentage of these spherules can be shown to be of recent terrestrial and industrial origin, such deposits are not dependable sources of extraterrestrial spherules. A classification of extraterrestrial spherules has been developed, based on microscopic observation, which shows a continuous series between two end members. One end member is magnetic and has a luster that varies from bright metallic to black submetallic, probably indicating a composition varying between iron and magnetite. The surface is notably reticulated. The other end member is nonmagnetic and is a generally colorless to amber-colored, transparent glass, probably with a composition varying between those of olivine and pyroxene. The surface is usually smooth, though submicronsized "percussion" marks or micron-sized indentations may be observed on some specimens. These members are referred to as Type I and Type III, respectively. Spherules intermediate between these end members are called Type II.
