Pine Bluff doctors, drug stores Mozambique calms down accused in birth control suit LITTLE kock Gloria Potts of California has filed a 1.2 million damage suit holding three Pine Bluff physicians, two Pine Bluff drug stores and the Syntex Laboratories responsible for the allegedly severe side-effects she suffered from Synlex birth control pills. Mrs. Potts filed the suit in U.S. District Court. Defendants are Drs. Cleon A. Flowers, Ross E. Maynard and Robert J. Smith, Reed's Drug Store, Reed-Collier Drug Store, Spillyards Drug Mart, Spill- yards Drugs, Inc., and Syntex Laboratories, Syntex Corp. Dr. Flowers gave Mrs. Potts a prescription for Norinyl 1- plus-8 birth control pills but did not give her any warnings or restrictions, the suit contended. While taking the pills, Mrs. Potts was hospitalized twice, the suit said, and incorrectly diagnosed as suffering from from "some sort of psychiatric disturbance and epileptic state." Dr. Maynard saw her the first lime she was hospitalized in April 1972, and Dr. Smith saw her the second time, in September 1972, according to the suit, After each hospitalization, Mrs. Potts continued taking the birth control pills since neither Dr. Smith nor Dr. Maynard "considered the use of this drug or its effect on ner in their diagnosis," the suit al< leged. Not until Feb. 6,1973 did doctors decide that Mrs. Potts' problem was not psychiatric but the result of the use of the birth control pills, the suit said. The suit said that while Mrs. Potts took the pills she suffered "extreme, violent and repetitive seizures, fits and periods of time of being unable to speak, write or hear." The suit held the two Pine Bluff drug stores, as well as other defendants, liable for Mrs. Potts' injuries because they allegedly had refilled her prescription for the pills without checking with her physician to find out Whether they should continue to fill the order re peatedly. LOURENCO MARQUES, Mozambique (AP) — More looting has been repotted in the slums of ixmrenco Marques, but reinforced Portuguese troops appeared to be getting control of Mozambique's seaside capital. Hundreds of soldiers were flown from central and northern Mozambique throughout the day on Wednesday. The troops sealed off parts of the city shortly before midnight as sporadic looting broke out again in the African quarters. But military authorities said the situation was calmer than on Tuesday night. Authorities at Miguel Bombarda Hospital, where most civilian casualties were taken, said 21 persons died at the hospital and the bodies of 29 others^ had been brought in since Tues- Nixon refused pardon to 2 aides. Post says WASHINGTON (AP) - In the last days of his presidency, Richard M. Nixon received urgent appeals for pardons from former aides H.R. Haldeman and John D. Ehrlichman, The Washington Post reported today. Quoting informed sources, reporters Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward wrote that Nixon rejected both requests and deeply resented the tone and character of the pleas. The story said Nixon was especially upset by Haldeman's request, which was described as "threatening" and tantamount to blackmail. It said one source said the request implied "he'd send Nixon to jail if he didn't get a pardon." Haldeman's lawyer, John J. Wilson, told the Post that he >'• was unaware of any pardon request but did not believe that FJaldeman would use a threat- >ening tone because of his "gen- 'SrUfis and Jandly av.'tude" toward Nixon. Haldeman's wife said in California that her husband could not comment on the story because he is under court order not to discuss Watergate-related matters. Ehrlichman could not be reached for comment. Haldeman and Ehrlichman go on trial with four other defendants in the Watergate cov- er-upcase Sept. 30. Ehrlichman already faces a prison term of 20 months to five years on his conviction in the Ellsberg break-in. Meanwhile, the lawyer for two convicted Watergate figures says his clients will take quick advantage of President Ford's newly clarified offer to study pardon requests individually. "We do intend to submit an application," Daniel E. Schultz, attorney for Bernard L. Barker and Eu^enio R. Martinez, said in a telephone interview on Wednesday. He said the forms would be submitted to the Justice Department early next week. Barker and Martinez, both me.mber.s of the<.antiTCommu<'j-> nist Cuban community in Miami, pleaded guilty for their roles in the original Watergate burglary and were convicted by a jury in connection with the break-in at the office of Daniel Ellsberg's psychiatrist. Oil exporting nations eye U.S. investments By SHIRLEY CHRISTIAN Associated Press Writer The petroleum exporting countries are doling out money as carefully as they did oil during the embargo, but there are signs the United States won't get cut off this time. The oil exporting nations made billions of dollars from the four-fold increase in petroleum prices and, in most cases, their economies can absorb but a fraction of the earnings. Most are holding on to surplus revenues, putting it in a safe and ready sugar bowl: short-term bank desposits of no more than 90 days. But some money is going to help the less developed nations and to purchase arms. Small amounts are being spent on real estate and business investments. The United States government and American businessmen have been seeking a share of the oil money. Last weekend, there was an indication of partial success: financial sources said that Saudi Arabia had decided to purchase several billion dollars of a special bond issue by the U.S. Treasury. Treasury Secretary William E. Simon visited the Mideast this summer, trying to convince Saudia Arabia and Kuwait to buy a large quantity of the special treasury bonds. He proposed that Saudi Arabia buy "well in excess of $5 billion." The exact amount and terms of the Saudi Arabian purchase have not been decided on, but a Saudi financial official said the figure would be less than Simon wanted. In addition to the special bond deal, Treasury officials say that oil producing countries have bought the bulk of between $4 billion and $5 billion worth of other Treasury and government securities sold to foreign countries this year. By the end of this year, the lOmembers of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries are expected to have $60 billion more than they need. The World Bank calculated that the surplus would grow to more than a trillion dollars by 1985. That's almost 10 times the amount the United States has invested abroad. The non-Arab countries — Iran, Venezuela, Indonesia and Nigeria — have larger populations or more sophisticated economies which can soak up most of their money. Even those countries will have excess cash for temporary investments while they wait for projects to come off the drawing boards. Where is oil money going? Bankers, realtors and others in the financial community are reluctant to talk for attribution. They say they are afraid that pending deals could fall through and possible future transactions might be jeopardized. Some pieces can be put together. Among them: —An offer from Kuwait to pay almost $250 million for the St. Martin's Property Corp., a British real estate group. Kuwait already owns 8 per cent of the company. - An half-interest by the Kuwait Investment Co. in a $100 million Atlanta hotel-commercial complex. —The purchase by the Ku- waii Investment Co. of Kiawah Island off the South Carolina coast for $17.4 million. —An offer from Iran to loan mime} to Gruiuman Curp. to assurt production of the F14 Navy fighter plane.

Blacks celebrating the end of the rebellion went on a spree of looting and violence in the ramshackle slums on three sides of the city. The chief target of the looters were small shops owned by Portuguese and Asians. A hospital spokesman said 171 wounded were hospitalized and 200 more were treated and "released. Many refused to leave W* fMMV* the right lo limit quantlll**. the hospital because they were afraid, the spokesman said. The hospital said most of the injuries were inflicted by knives, stones or machetes, btlt there were also several shotgun wounds. The downtown business sec* tion escaped most of the violence but was virtually deserted on Wednesday as the whites took refuge in their homes and hotels. Offices,' shops, restaurants and banks were closed despite appeals by the military authorities to reopen. The airport was closed to civilian traffic. Only a few cars Were oh the streets. The white rebels scattered after their movement foundered, but officials said many were arrested.
