Sessions as his new FBI director, praised him and Supreme Court nominee Douglas Ginsburg as men concerned about the rights of vic tims of crime. The president made his com ments during the swearing-in cere mony in the courtyard at FBI head quarters. Reagan said that the country should commit itself to caring in the future “about victims’ rights, not just criminal rights.” “The next justice on the Supreme Court better be ready to deal with that challenge, and Judge Ginsburg is ready,” Reagan said. During a brief tour earlier of the FBI building, Reagan said he wasn’t concerned about allegations of Ginsburg’s possible conflict of inter est involving his cable investments. Ginsburg faces Senate questions about his role in an administration effort that helped win First Amend ment protection for cable televisior. operators at a time Ginsburg hadal most $140,000 invested in a cabk company. At the swearing-in, Reagan joked :all that in his typically thorough mai ner, Sessions “got the ulcer out of the way before you got the job.” Sessions, 57, has spent a weekand a half in the hospital this month fori previously undiagnosed bleeding ul cer whicn twice forced postpone ment of his installation. Reagan stands by Ginsberg; senators want investigation WASHINGTON (AP) — Presi dent Reagan stood by his Supreme Court nominee Monday as Senate Democrats said they would investi gate Douglas H. Ginsburg’s having held stock in a cable TV company while supervising a government ef fort to win First Amendment protec tion for cable television operators. Meanwhile, conservative groups said they were not concerned about reports that Ginsburg’s wife, Dr. Hallee Perkins Morgan, performed two abortions and assisted in a third as a medical resident in Boston in 1979-80. One conservative spokes man said she should be commended for making a personal decision to stop participating in such proce dures. Members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which will conduct hear ings on Ginsburg’s nomination, cau tioned senators not to jump to con clusions about a possible conflict of interest in the cable television mat ter. But they also made clear they be lieve the issue should be investi gated. Financial disclosure statements in dicate that at the time of the cable court case, Ginsburg had a stake of almost $140,000 in Rogers Commu nications Inc. The Supreme Court •embraced the administration's friend-of-the-court brief, whick Ginsburg had helped prepare as i Justice Department official, in a 1986 decision likely to reduce gov ernment regulation of cable opera tors. Reagan, asked by reporters whether he felt he had been given enough information about Ginsburg prior to last Thursday’s nomination, said he had thoroughly reviewed the major candidates. When asked whether he was con cerned about reports of Ginsburg’s cable investments, Reagan said, “No, not at all.” New treatment fights lethal consequences of radiation exposure NEW YORK (AP) — Treatment with two naturally occurring sub stances that stimulate bone marrow may protect against some of the most lethal consequences of radia tion exposure and cancer chemo therapy, researchers said Monday. Radiation and anti-cancer drugs both interfere with bone marrow’s production of infection-fighting white blood cells. The new treatment triggers renewed production of those cells, thus lowering the likeli hood of life-threatening infections, according to a report in the current issue of the Proceedings of the Na tional Academy of Sciences. “The period when the patient is at greatest risk of infection due to re duced white cell functions is re duced,” said Dr. Malcolm Moore, a cancer specialist at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City and principal author of the new study. If such drugs prove successful in human trials that are now begin ning, their principal use would be with cancer patients receiving che motherapy or radiation treatment and with people suffering from other bone-marrow diseases. Such drugs could also serve as a treatment for people exposed to ra diation during nuclear war, Moore said. A similar drug was reportedly used recently to treat two victims of accidental radiation exposure in Brazil and was credited with saving their lives. Previous studies by Moore and others have shown that one of the substances, called granulocyte col ony stimulating factor, or G-CSF, could boost numbers of the white blood cells known as neutrophils, which defend against invading bac teria. The new study shows that another similar substance, called interleukin- 1 or IL-1, also can boost the produc tion of neutrophils in laboratory ani mals. And when both drugs were tried together, the effect was greater than that of either one alone, he said. Toddler rests after transplant of five organs PITTSBURGH (AP) — A 3- year-old girl was awake and kick- -organ ing with her favorite doll beside her Monday as doctors watched for any signs of rejection after she became only the third person in the nation to receive a five-c transplant. Tabatha Foster of Madison- ville, Ky., Remained in critical condition, which is normal after transplant surgery, at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, said hos- pital spokesman Lynn McMahon. Transplant pioneer Dr. Thomas Starzl said Tabatha was wide awake but could not talk be cause she was breathing with a respirator, which may be re moved Tuesday. She was sedated enough to make her comfortable, and her arms were restrained.
