Two American chemists, including UCLA's Donald J. Cram, and a Frenchman have won the 1987 Nobel Prize in chemistry, the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences announced Wednesday. The chemists were honored for their work over the last two decades in making relatively uncomplicated compounds that perform the same biological functions as natural proteins.

President Oscar Arias Sanchez of Costa Rica accepted the 1987 Nobel Peace Prize on Thursday, urging the superpowers to stop meddling in Central America and let the region solve its own problems. "If they cannot refrain from amassing weapons of war, then in the name of God, at least they should leave us in peace," Arias said in his speech accepting the prize, which includes a 23-carat Nobel medallion and a monetary award valued at about $350,000.

The long-sought dream of room-temperature superconductivity will move much closer to reality today as French researchers report that they have achieved superconductivity at minus 10 degrees Fahrenheit. Superconductors, which offer no resistance to the flow of electricity, hold the promise of loss-free transmission of electricity over long distances, the development of levitating trains and more powerful motors, faster computers and a host of other applications.

Researchers have discovered a new family of ceramics that promise to carry much greater electrical currents than existing "high-temperature" superconductors, experts said Monday. The new materials, discussed publicly for the first time here at a meeting of the American Assn. for the Advancement of Science, promise to bring practical applications of superconductors much nearer to reality.

Chemist Donald Capone missed his Christmas vacation last year working overtime in his lab here, and now he has missed his Easter vacation also. For most of the last four months, in fact, Capone has been working 12 to 16 hours a day, seven days a week, in his lab at the Argonne National Laboratory, living on junk food and engaging in an international scientific race the likes of which has not been seen in this decade. Capone is not alone in his devotion.

Not so long ago, Paul C.W. Chu was just another physics professor at the University of Houston, doing the things he loved. He taught for a living and gardened for fun. When he could, he would slip on a comfortable old lab coat and indulge in a little basic research. Chu still wears his lab coat most days. But almost everything else about his life has changed.

Theoretical physicists, who have long toiled in obscurity, have suddenly developed an unaccustomed celebrity. "I feel like a teen-age girl who has never been attractive and then changes overnight," said Marvin Cohen of UC-Berkeley. But, he added, "we're very happy and we're having fun."
