Birch Bayh, D-Ind,, says millions of dollars worth of drugs shipped to South Vietnam have wound up in the hands of the Viet Cong, the North Vietnamese, and probably Red China as well. The Agency for International Development (AID), which supervised shipment of the drugs to Vietnam, said Bayh's statements contained "apparent inaccuracies." "There is reason to believe that the lack of control over the importation of one drug in particular --chloramphenicol -has resulted in illness or even death to an undetermined number of South Vietnamese citizens," Bayh told a news conference Friday. Bayh said AID's commercial import program provided for Vietnam in one year 27,000 kilos of wide spectrum antibiotics, mostly chloramphenicol. This was as much as the annual consumption by seven other Asian nations with 10 times the population of Vietnam, he said. Chloramphenicol is by far the cheapest of the antibiotics and would offer the, highest profit margin if re-exported, Bayh said. Because of its dangerous side effects it should be used only as a last resort, "perhaps as in combatting a cholera epidemic which' has been plaguing Communist China for the past year or so." "The largest chloramphenicol importer (Rousseil of of France) was converting the bulk imports into tablets in quantities far exceeding any possible use for them in South Vietnam," Bayh said. He said Rousseil made a profit of more than $2 million on an investment of $100,000 or less. "The first page of instructions on use of the drug...was printed in Chinese, despite Vietnam's relatively small Chinese population." An AID spokesman later said "it is obvious that the statement that a $100,000 investment was turned into a $2 million profit is not correct." AID also said it had "no audit findings to date which provide any basis for substantiating the supposition that this drug has been diverted to North Vietnam or Communist China." Suspect Held After $1,700 Robbery PHOENIX (AP) -- A transient was held today by Phoenix police on charges of robbing the Western Savings and Loan Co., of $1,700. Officers said they picked up Edward Burdett Barber, 37, at a Phoenix motel shortly after the robbery. They' said while checking the area, they asked a room clerk if a man matching the robber's description had been seen. The clerk led officers to Barber's room. The clerk said Barber had paid his room bill with a roll of $20 bills shortly before he was arrested. Promise Of Election Ends Baltimore Teacher Strike Soviets Mute Yank Jazzmen TALLIN, U.S.S.R. (UPI) -- the hope he could play at some An American jazz combo never got 'to play a note Friday, silenced by Soviet officials overseeing fiie I4th Tallin (Estonia) Jazz Festival. The Charles Lloyd Quartet - was asked to tape a perform". ance for Estonian television ^ Friday night, but the group - refused to play when they learned they would have to play before an empty auditorium. "Lloyd, whose jazz group is the first American combo ever to be asked to play at the festival, said a live audience was essential to give the group inspiration. The jazz festival organizers agreed and told Lloyd his group would be permitted to play before a full festival audience Friday night. The session was elsewhere in the Soviet Union, doyd said, "We will have to vait and see." to be televised nationally. The quartet showed up at the festival hall. and waited its turn. Crowds of Soviet jazz fans clustered around them as they waited to go on. The televised portion of the show drew to a close and the quartet was still waiting. After a conference with festival officials, the group walked out. "We cannot play and we said. are leaving," Lloyc "If I can't play my music in this part of the world, the work is big enough for me to go somewhere else to play it,' Lloyd said. Lloyd later said he woulc remain at the festival through its completion this weekend in ater date. Asked if he would play Pedestrian Injured By Hit-Run Car With few clues to go on, South Tucson police are continuing their search for a hit- and-run vehicle which struck and seriously injured a pedestrian last night. ·-· ' : '··· ; , Jesus Federico" 44 of 502' r W. 27th St., was reported in "ex- temely critical" condition with head and leg injuries at Pima County Hospital this morning. . Town police said Federico was hit about 9:30 p.m. at S. 10th Ave. and W. 26th St. There were no known wit- n e s s e s , and officers were unable to determine which direction the hit-and-run vehicle was traveling. No skids marks vrere found. They said it appeared, however, that the victim was struck while walking in a cross walk. Investigators reported they found a broken rear view mirror in the intersection. It is one of the only clues they have to work with, they said. 7 Burglary Suspects Arrested Seven burglary suspects have been arrested in connection with three separate break-ins. Three of the men were picked up in a car about 6 p.m. yesterday following the theft of 13 men's suits worth a total of $250 from Dunlap's Department Store, 6325 E. 22nd St. Police said the suits were found in the auto. Accused in the theft are Mitchell E. Darby, 21, of 1525 E. 2 6 t h St.; Joseph Medaris Jones, 30, no address given, and Frank Evans, 19, of 53 E. 5th St. Two other men, who police say were seen breaking into a railroad freight car about 2 a.m. today at the warehouse, of Associated Grocers, 830 E. 17th St., were identified as Willie Marvel Starks, 23, of general delivery, and James T. Thompson, 23, of 1034 E. 35th St. The other alleged break-in occurred about 3 a.m. at the Kappa Alpha Order Fraternity, 1515 E. 1st St. a Universty of Arizona police officer, said he spotted two men raiding the residence. Arrested at the scene was Roy Lavette Ireland, 21, of 6426 Caile De San Alberto. Taken into custody later by city police was Michael McCarty. 22. Investigators said the pair attempted to take household goods. By RANJIT DA SILVA United Press International BALTIMORE (UPI) --Baltimore teachers ended their three-day strike against the city school system Friday night. They achieved their major goal --the promise of a collective bargaining election. The strike, by Local 340 of the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), brought on student disorders, illegal picketing and 201 arrests. A Baltimore judge said the striking teachers showed "an utter disregard for 'the laws of the community in which you live and have completely failed to show the proper respect due authority." Judge Meyer Cardin, who issued the injunction against! picketing, said the teachers could no longer "expect respect and discipline from your students." But students at many schools indicated support for their striking teachers by swarming around policemen when arrests were attempted, and in one case, rocking a police car. Sporadic student outbursts were reported at several schools Friday, the most serious at City College, an all-boys' high school. The union ended its strike after an emergency meeting between the mayor, other city officials and the City Council Friday morning. The city agreed to try to set up a collective bargaining election in about four weeks. A special ordinance would have to be passed by the council to allow the referendum among the teachers. The union .membership by voice vote ended the strike Friday but indicated the strike would resume if the council failed to pass the ordinance, which was not likely. Two major teacher organizations have competed for power in the city in recent years, the AFT, which claims a membership of 2,000 and the Public School Teachers Association (PSTA), which claims 6,000 members. Oldest Illini Honored Dr. Robert H. Forbes, who will be 100 years old Monday, was honored yesterday by several Tucsonians representing the University of Illinois Alumni Association. Forbes, who graduated 75 years ago in the class of 1892, is the oldest living graduate of the university, which currently is celebrating its centennial. Helping him adjust a silver "Illini" bolo tie is Don Schellie, president of the Tucson Illini Club, as Dr. Jack Klein, vice president, (left) ar;d Raymod F. Hayes, , secretary-treasurer, look on. Also attending were William R. Mathews and C. K. Walbert. (Citizen Photo by Art Grasberger) Robert Forbes, At 100, 'Awaits Next Adventure' MINISTER'S PLEA Therapeutic Abortion Legislation Urged By S. C. WARMAN Citizen Staff Writer Legislation permitting therapeutic abortions was endorsed by the Rev. Gilbert Zimmerman at a Tucson Press Club Forum yesterday. He said he was repeating the. position of the board of social c o n c e r n s of the Methodist S o u ' t h e m California-Arizona Conference. The Rev. Mr. Zimmerman, pastor of the First Methodist Church, asserted there are 10,000 deaths a year in the United States from illegal abortions and these deaths "are a terrible attrition which the church cannot tolerate." The conference board speaks only for itself. Methodist pastors' and laymen at an annual meeting next month at 'Redlands, Calif., will vote an official position on the issue. Also discussed at the forum was the problem of pornographic publications. Fred Belman, assistant city prosecutor noted that legal tests to get a conviction are quite severe. Outright lewd pictures can result in convictions, he said, but it is almost impossible to get a conviction in the gray area between lewdness .and art. '- Belman said there Is no doubt that pornographic material is freely available in Tucson through sale on some newsstands and through the mail. "It's just fact we have to accept," the prosecutor said, pointing to a recent U. S. Supreme Court decision, "for there is nothing we can now do about it." 4 Moiiey Tree' Sheds 'Parasite' LONDON (UPI)--Many wives do believe money grows on trees, but a divorce court ruled Thursday that that was not grounds for divorce. Mrs. Dorothy Butler, a divorce court was told,, made "insatiable" monetary demands on her husband despite the fact he sometimes worked 128 hours a week in order 'to boost the family income. Despite this, Butler testified, she called him names in public. One of them, he said, was "louse ridden, misgotten son of Satan." The court gave Butler a decree on grounds of desertion. By JOHN RIDDICK Citizen Staff Writer Dr. Robert H. Forbes "waiting for the next adventure," will observe with accustomed dignity and some additional enthusiasm a century of life Monday. For the first time in many years, the birthday party, set for tomorrow will not be in Forbes' old house on Olive Road but in a nursing home where he has been confined with a broken shoulder. The Forbes spirit, however, overlooks such minor inconveniences. T h i s same spirit helped launch a frontier community into a new world a long time ago when Forbes was dean of the University of Arizona College of Agriculture from 1894 to 1918. "Come in," he said in his vigorous voice to his visitor at Forrester's Old Pueblo Casita. "Excuse me for not getting up." How did Dr. Forbes feel? "Quite as usual," he said. "The b r o k e n bones have healed." -- And then, with an impish grin, "I'm waiting now for the next adventure." Was he at all surprised to have arrived at 100 years "I 'have felt for some time it ' My people was likely" people were he said, vigorous and so I had a right to expect a long life. My grandparents all died in their 80s and 90s." What did he think of worry and a long life? "We -- all of us -- worry about little things," said Forbes. "I don't worry much." As a t a r t of the celebration, Forbes yesterday was given awards from his alma mater, the University of Illinois. "When I went to the university, it was a small institution of some 600 people," said Forbes. "I went there on a scholarship so that much was expected of me. I graduated with honors." Adventure has been a constant companion of Forbes, perhaps not least when he chose to come to an obscure land grant school in Tucson. "After a short term of years trying out various attempts at employment, the opportunity came to go to Arizona where the new insititution, the so- called University of Arizona, offered employment," was his casual description of the event. At any rate, after 24 years of helping to change a primitive agriculture here, adventure called again and Forbes set sail for 13 years of work in Egypt, French West Africa and Haiti. 'Why did he go? . ''I went because of increased salary inducements and interest in new fields of endeavor," said Forbes. The interest included pioneer work with the date palm and cotton. In time the path led back to Tucson and a new adventure, politics. He spent 16 years in the Arizona Legislature. ' ' M y legislative projects included the University of Arizona and the Arizona Pioneers Historical Society, but I suppose there were 600 bills which I considered and voted on," said Forbes. I have now retired from political activity." tranquility privacy charm spectacular city view 6240 N.
