The hospital presently has au. thorization for a $2.1 million, three-year loan which has not been used, Ogren has said. In a written request submitted to the commission nearly $3.5 million was said available April 17, while $4.25 million was re quired. The request lists funds needed for construction, remodeling, construction change orders, sen-! try service and architectural fees. A $14 million bond issue was passed in 1966 to cover the project. In January, hospital trustees said they would not seek changing the $2.1 million loan to $3 million because Ogren said financing was in good shape. The April request said $780,- 416 in additional funds are need ed. Washoe Commissioner Joe Coppa said Wednesday he prob ably would oppose the change, as he has before. The matter should go to the voters, he said. County Manager Russ MeDon- ald said the money is needed because of changes in construc tion plans. Unanimous approval by the commission is needed to change the loan. In other business, the com mission will consider a request by the Washoe County Sheriff's Department Employes Associa tion Inc. for recognition as an exclusive bargaining agent. The request was presented to the county in March. It listed 68 members in the group. Additional business includes discussion of a notice from the county's group insurance car rier, Cal Western Life, that rates will increase by 9.2 per cent July 1. The increase would have been 13.5 per cent if federal price and wage controls did not exist, according to the insurance company. The commission also will dis cuss the recently completed fed eral report which says Lemmon Valley has enough water for present needs, but development will be limited without import ing more water. Nevada job injury rate jump cited Gazette Carson City Bureau On the job injuries suffered by Nevada workers will have reached an all-time high by the end of this fiscal year, John Reiser, chairman of the Nevada Industrial Commission said Wednesday. Reiser said by June 30 the commission will have handled over 30,000 claims resulting from such injuries, topping the record of 28,000 set in 1970, Approximately one out of eight Nevada wage earners will have been involved in an accident requiring at least one visit to a doctor or a hospital emer gency room by that time, Reiser added. Reiser said the most common injuries were to the hands, and the most troublesome and ex pensive were those affecting the back. Back injuries comprise 29 per cent of all injuries which disable workmen for five days or more, he said. Reiser said that there had been no noticeable cnange in accident patterns as a result of Nevada's participation in the Federal Occupational Health and Safety program, for which the state receives $96,122 in grants. "But employers seem to be more conscious of the importance of on the job safety programs." ness forces rights case hearing delay A hearing by the Nevada Equal Rights Commission into alleged employment discrimination has been continued indef initely due to illness of the com- plaintant. Rosemary Tucker, formerly employed as a clerk-typist for Diamond National Co. of Reno, has undergone surgery and will be unable to participate in hearings for at least six weeks.

Commissioners will consider Rock concert policy change delayed in Vegas LAS VEGAS (AP) The Convention Authority has delayed action on changing its rock con cert policy as local rock promoters and the supporters in tensify a battle to have such events scheduled more frequent ly. The postponement came on the advice of authority counsel George Dickerson.

Jim Wright of Texas, who helped spearhead Hubert H. Humphrey's 1968 presidential drive, has endorsed Humphrey for this year's nomination. The plan could be developed by the county's public works committee, which will remain stable even though members of the county commission may change, McDonald said. Such planning, he said, would allow the commission to know facts when they present the plan to the public. Future commissions could up date and change priorities, he suggested.
