suggestion I contact you with the following information so that it
might be considered for the next addition of the SP newsletter and/or
be posted on the society website.


Unfortunately we must close the Tom Cole/ Willis Johnson lab by August
1 which in fact means that all experiments must end by July 17.  Tom
Cole died in early April after a seven month long battle with
pancreatic cancer.  I promised him that I would try to find a home for
some or all of his cultures.  Tom's group has been maintaining a number
of species of paracmecium that include:  Bacteria free (P. primaurelia,
P. sonnebornia, P. tetraaurelia, P. caudatum, P. octaurelia, P.
dodecaurelia,  P. tradeaurelia, P. multinucleatum and Tetrahymena
pyriformis).   Bacterized culture (P, jennings, P multimicronucleatum
(3), P. caudatum, P. aurelia, P. triaurelia, P. pentaurelia, P.
sexaurelia, P. sepaurelia, P. deccaurelia, P. undeaurelia, P.
quadeaurelia and Euplotes aedicabtus.  It will be easier to close the
lab knowing that some or all of the cultures might be used.


I would be most grateful if you could make this information known to
the members of the society.  Meetings will keep me out of the office
until June should you wish to contact me.
