The three victims said they were introduced to Newton by Argo or Aitken, who represented him as a doctor. According to officials from the state Hoard of Medical Quality Assurance and the state Hoard of Osteopath Kx-aminers, Newton is not licensed to practice medicine or surgery in California. In addition, a representative from the state Hoard of Itegistercd Nursing testified at the preliminary hearing that neither Argo nor Aitken is licensed to practice nursing in the state. Newton and Argo were arrested April 4 and Aitken turned herself in April 9, Cohen said. Newton was being held in County Jail on $250,000 bail, while the other two were released after posting bond. both physical and psychological damage for up lo 10 years. Iloefflin said he treated another patient a 26-year-old from l,os Angeles Sept. l(i, li)81, for problems in the checks, buttocks and hips, also allegedly due lo silicone injections, lie said he expects the patient lo have "continuous problems." Iloefflin said silicone injections are "not an accepted medical practice" today because the type of silicone available has many impurities and is not sanitary. A third patient, who represents the prosecution's strongest case, testified that Newton performed a breast implant on her in November and that the prosthesis began to fall out through the stitching. The victim, a 25-year-old from Los Angeles, said in broken English that she went to see Hoefflin because "1 was very sick." Although the defense argued that the incidence of breast implant rejections is higher among people who arc born male, Hoefflin said that is not true. Hoefflin further testified that he has performed about 1,000 breast implants, about 50 of which were on people who were anatomically male, and that he has never had an implant extrude through the incision. Argo and Aitken are suspected of drumming up cus The reapportioned 22nd Congressional District twists and turns over a huge and diverse area, stretching from Duarte northwest to Gorman.

ALL DISCS PRICED BELOW SUGGESTED RETAIL Moorhead Opens Valley Campaign Discovers Few Know Him in Reapportioned 22nd District By RICHARD SIMON, Times Staff Writer Rep. Carlos J. Moorhead was halfway through his talk at the Santa Clarita Valley Chamber of Commerce when a woman in the audience who arrived late interrupted to ask who he was. Moorhead, who has represented Glendale in Congress for 10 years, explained that he is a congressman whose 22nd Congressional District has been changed by reapportionment to take in most of the Santa Clarita Valley. The incident illustrated what may be Moorhead's only problem in this election year making himself known to 250,000 new voters, nearly half the residents of this district. The Santa Clarita Valley accounts for 60,000 residents, or 10 of the district's population. The newly reapportioned 22nd Congressional District extends from the San Gabriel Valley through Glendale to the eastern half of Burbank, running through the foothills and taking in most of the Santa Clarita and Antelope valleys. It takes in portions of districts currently represented by Reps. John H. Rousselot (R-Arcadia). Barry M. Goldwater Jr. (R-Woodland Hills) and William Thomas (R-Bakersfield). Goldwater. who has represented most of the Santa Clarita Valley, is running for the U.S. Senate. Moorhead. a Republican, appears to be in a strong position to win reelection. He is well known in most of the district which is heavily Republican and his Democratic opponent-to-be enjoys little name recognition. Moorhead escaped a primary fight when Rousselot. a longtime friend, decided not to run in the new 22nd District, opting instead to seek reelection in the 30th District in the San Gabriel Valley. The only Democrat in the race is La Crcsccnta attorney Harvey L. Goldhammer. a political newcomer without any significant backing or money as yet. The Libertarian candidate is Robert T. Gerringer. a data processing manager from Pasadena. Moorhead's campaign war chest totals $145,712. according to campaign reports filed with the Los Angeles County registrar-recorder's office. The registration in the district favors Moorhead. Republicans outnumber Democrats, 54 to 37. making it one of the safest GOP districts in the state. Moorhead. 59. has never really had a tough time winning reelection. After representing the Glendale area for six years in the Assembly. Moorhead breezed into office in 1972 with 57 of the vote to fill the seat vacated by H. Allen Smith in what was then the 20th District. Even during the Watergate scandal, when he voted against the impeachment resolution of then-President Richard Nixon, Moorhead survived an election that cost dozens of Republican congressmen their jobs. Moorneaa won reelection with 56 of the vote. In his last election in 1980, Moorhead won with 64. Moorhead's appearance in the Santa Clarita Valley last week was his first in the area since it was added to his district. Despite the fact that his office sent out 32.000 mailers to Santa Clarita Valley residents inviting them to "discuss the issues with Congressman Moorhead." only 45 residents showed up. He said he was not disappointed by the low turnout. "I'm sure that after people get to know who I am, we'll get bigger crowds," he said. Moorhead defended his mailing of the meeting notices under his franking privilege at taxpayers' expense he could not say how much it cost saying that even if residents do not show up at his meetings, the mailers "tell them there is someone interested in their problems." In his talk at the Santa Clarita Valley chamber, Moorhead spoke briefly about the economy (he said it would get better); President Reagan's budget (he said he supports increases in defense spending), and nuclear disarmament (he supports it "but only bilaterally" with guarantees of Soviet compliance ) . During a question-and-answer period, residents asked whether Moorhead intended to open an office in the Santa Clarita Valley. He now has offices in Glendale and Pasadena. Moorhead made no commitment, promising, however, to make his staff accessible to residents. Afterward, several residents said they liked what they heard, but none of them would say they were ready to vote for Moorhead. "I need to get to know him better." said one resident. Crescenta Business Pioneer Succumbs to Heart Failure Funeral services were held last week for Mrs. Laura Adrienne MacDonald, 94, who died of heart failure at her La Crescenta home. Mrs. MacDonald journeyed from Tonopah, Nev., to a rustic corner of the Crescenta Valley nearly 60 years ago with her husband and five sons and started a real estate business with the development of 50 acres in what was then known as Highway Highlands. When her husband, Rory, died in 1933, the Foothill Boulevard office had grown to include insurance and notary services. Mrs. MacDonald stepped in to run it for the next 36 years until her retirement in 1969 at age 82. Over the years, Mrs. MacDonald was active in such community organizations as the Red Cross, PTA and the Board of Realtors. In 1968, she was honored by the La Crescenta Chamber of Commerce as the La Crescentan of the year. During World War II, Mrs. MacDonald worked the swing shift as a riveter for Lockheed Aircraft Co. after putting in a full day at her own office, a relative said. She was born in Park City, Utah, on April 16, 1887. In 1910. she married Rory MacDonald in Detroit and they moved to Nevada before coming to California. Mrs. MacDonald is survived by three sons. Jack H. of Glendale, Scott T. and Roderick Q. of La Crescenta; 11 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren.
