A noted change in the league format was to expand the levels of competition. The newly incorporated association will field two divisions, meting on two separate evenings for the Slammer league, which will start soon and run until the end of August. A recreation league will meet on Monday evenings from 7 to 10:00 p.m. The "rec" division is open to both experienced players and beginners. A "power" division will met on Thursday evenings at he same times for more accomplished competitors. Teams will be formed independently and are invited to enter this division as a team. Genie Lute, current league President, commenting on the new format said, "This should give anyone interested in volleyball a place to play' Even though both divisions will be playing under USVBA rules, the powerball competitor and the beginner now have a choice as to the level of play they want!' Interested individuals may show up for the "open play" sessions currently meeting on Thursdays from 7- 10 p.m. at the Metropolitan Multiservice Center on West Gray or call 862-5195 for more information. Montrose Neighborhood Sports —Patty's Pool Parlor Get out those tips and shafts and let's get it on. The G.H.EB.L. summer season is now under way so all of you so-called sharks better have your "stick" together. There will be 15 weeks of good old fashioned fun and friendly competition to carry us through the drudger- y of the summer. I know you guys from the Briar Patch are eager to defend your championship but I hope you are prepared to put something else on the shelf where the cup "used to be". As is the custom, there will not be any standings information to report for the first three weeks of play. I'll try to keep everyone informed as to what's going on until then. For the newcomers to the league I'd like to say welcome. Anytime any of you have questions or concerns about the league please feel free to contact me or any of the other trustees. We ask that the veteran teams show leniency with the newcomers and help them with the rules. Remember, we were all new at one time and someone had to help us. It will soon be time for our league picnic. A tentative date of June 17th has been selected but we have not decided on a location. Last year was the first tim we had the picnic and I think we all ei^oyed ourselves. It was nice spending the day with friends in an environment outside of a bar and doing something other than playing pool. For those of you who missed it last year, try to make it this year (Judy cooks a mean hot dog). We will ned volunteers to help organize, cook, etc. If you're interested, please any one of the Board members. The 611 and the CSfN Cafe are donating a keg of beer each for this year's picnic. Thanks a lot guys, we really appreciate it. AmFAR announces grants to help get experimental treatments By PEG BYRON FOR THE MONTROSE VOICE NEW YORK (UPI)-A $1.4 million effort to speed up development of promising experimental AIDS treatments through non-traditional research organizations around the country was announced April 27 in New York. The American Foundation for AIDS Research hopes to create the opportunity for everyone with AIDS in the United States to partake of some kind of experimental treatment, officials said. "It's not going to happen overnight. Within one year the potential is for ten times more patients to be involved in community-based trials, about 50,000 instead of 5,000. That will be virtually all of them," said Dr. Mathilde Krim, AmFAR's founding co-chair. "There will be some people left out still, probably the poor in rural areas, but the outreach will be much larger. There will be room for every body in some kind of clinical trial," Krim said. AmFAR plans to distribute the funds to 16 groups it described as community-based clinical trial centers, an alternative to studies done at major universities and large urban hospitals. Located in 13 cities around the United States, the programs are attempts to cut through bureaucratic red tape and make experimental treatments available to a broader range of people—especially women and intravenous drug users, who are primarily black and Hispanic and have not been well-represented in most past clinical trials. People with AIDS and physicians in the communities are to be involved in choosing substances and designs for clinical trials, which also apply traditional standards for reviewing procedures and collecting data. The approach was pioneered by AIDS organizations in New York and San Francisco, where efforts already have yielded success with a treatment for Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia, which is responsible for most AIDS-related deaths. On May 1, the drug, aerosol pentamidine, was to be the subject of a hearing for marketing approval by the federal Food and Drug Administration, which granted it a limited approval on the basis of data gathered by the Community Research Initiative in New York and the County Community Consortium in San Francisco. The community groups so far have been commended for the quality of data gathered, and cancer researcher Dr. Burton Lee, now President Bush's personal physician has recommended the approach be applied to other diseases, such as cancer research. The National Institutes of Health has adopted the approach for $6 million in AIDS research contracts it plans to award in September. "Community physicians and people with AIDS began pushing the concept a while ago. Everybody essentially is for it," said Dr. Lawrence Deyton, chief of the community clinical research section of the AIDS program at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at NIH. The AmFAR grants ranged from $30,000 to $100,000 for the groups, located in Atlanta; Austin, Tex.; Boston; Dallas; Houston; Los Angeles; New Haven, Conn.; New York; Portland, Ore.; Redwood City, Calif.; San Francisco; Santa Fe, N.M.; Springfield, Va.; and Westwood, N.J. Krim said major medical centers have not had the capacity to carry out tests on people with the treatment leads yielded by stepped-up efforts among pharmaceutical companies, which have recognized a potentially vast market as worldwide estimates of people infected with the AIDS virus have surpassed 5 million.
