'Alcoholics 9 abuse ' Our L.A. Bureau ! 1 Supervisor Baxter Ward has'scheduled a public hearing today 'on Charges thatichronic alcoholics ar- resfed in Los Angeles County in the past 12 jncfflths "have been confined-in nursing homes through chicanery and/or force." L. " '* M. uCBiing SCt In a letter to supervisor, Wart said he also has recently been given information indicating . that "other rights of these persons have been' flagrantly and persistently violated by the operators of certain nursing homes." - · . ,· He said his information shows that'.the victims have also been "subjected to questionable medical practices and that major billing irregularities (on Medi-Cal) may have occurred." Ward said in the letter he hoped a number of immediate corrective ac 1 tions could be taken to protect the public. . -· SAN FRANCISCO (AP) ·"-.'-- Two pregnant women filed a federal class action ·3 suit Wednesday in an effort/to force the U.S. De. -partment of Agriculture to provide food stamps for unborn children. Rosa Fields of San Pedro and Pamela Hick- man.of Daly City filed the suit in U.S. District Court against Secretary of Agriculture Earl Butz. '··' The suit claimed that ; the USDA policy of ex' eluding unborn children . from the stamp program .violates congressional in: tent and the Constitution's aid f 6r uiiborn sought equal protection clause. ' "The .USDA .excludes unborn children /even though overwhelming ·medical and nutritional evidence .has demonstrated the .direct relationship between inadequate prenatal nutrition and long-range the child," the complaint said;. - " · · · · . · ; ·. · It contended that in at least 20 states; including California, unborn children receive grants under the Aid to Families with Dependent Children program. ·_'[. It said a USDA regulation provides automatic eligibiity of all members of an AFDC household for food stamps. The cost and amount of food stamps is based upon the number of persons in a household and its income: -'.-·· '·.-· The suit claims unborn children of low-income mothers are "subject to very substantial hazards of low birth weight,-mental and physiological impairment, anemia, stillbirth, and mortality if their nutritional needs are not met."' Ward Wednesday also wrote to Dist. Atty. Joseph Busch about the hearing, saying information developed by his office on the nursing home industry led him to conclude that "the rights and welfare of sick and old people confined to these institutions are not being adequately protected." He told Busch today's hearing would center on the activities of Charles Weldoii and a group of nursing homes owned and operated by the David- Ruben Co. · ·· He told Busch, "I am aware you have repeatedly urged ' the Board of Supervisors to assume more responsibility for administrative and management problems in county 'government. "Therefore (at today's hearing) I intend to provide the board with a report on what I consider to be a tragic illustration of administrative neglect and I will propose a number of administrative remedies." -'..
