Syphilis Study Ends, But Care Uncertain For Tuskegee Survivors WASHINGTON (AP) -- Now that a controversial U.S. Public Health Service syphilis experiment has ended, the federal government has no legal means to deliver health care to those who survived the test. Officials at the Department of Health, Education and Welfare, parent agency of the PHS, concede that they no longer have authorization or funds to continue physical examinations and medical treatment for the Alabama black men who survived the 40-year Tuskegee Study. One official has called the matter "merely an administrative problem" for which a solution was being sought. But he could offer no estimate on how long the solution might take. The Tuskegee syphilis study began in Macon County, Ala., in 1932 and ended after public disclosure of the project lasl year. More than 430 poor, rural black men with syphilis were denied treatment for the dls- _ease so doctors could study through eventual autopsy the damage untreated syphilis does to the human body. At least 28 of the men died as a direct result of untreated syphilis and many others may have been crippled. When existence of the study Visit Postponed Dr. John P. Anton, Fuller E. G a l l o w a y Professor a n d chairman of the Department ot Philosophy at Emory University in Atlanta, Ga., has been forced to postpone his planned visit to the University of Arkansas campus this week because of illness. Dr. Anton had been scheduled to deliver a public lecture today at 8 p.m. in room 105 of the Communications Classroom Building on "Tragic Vision and P h i l o s o p h i c 'Theoria' in Classical Greece." This lecture has been rescheduled for March 7 at the same time and place, according to Dr. Harold Hantz professor of philosophy. was disclosed last summer, 1EW appointed a citizens panel o investigate the experiment. Last fall, the panel recommended that the study be ended mmediately and that survivors 3e given all needed medical treatment. HEW said it would comply. However, Dr. R. C. Backus, an HEW official serving as executive secretary to the Tus kegee Study advisory panel, said at a panel meeting last Friday that there v/ould be what he called a break in health care for the 74 survivors of the experiment. Later, when pressed for an explanation, Backus said that as long as the study continued, doctors had the authority to provide regular checkups and medical care to the survivors, but when the study ended, so did that legal authority. The TIMES Is The B«(t Buy For Your Advartiting Dollars! House Committee Favors Bill On City Sales Tax LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- A bill to authorize cities to levy a one cent sales tax on approval of the voters was recommended for passage Tuesday by the House Revenue and Taxation Committee. The bill by Rep. Rudy Moore of Springdale would amend the 1971 act which gave cities home rule powers, but not the authority to levy the sales tax. The committee, in another action, voted to kill a bill that would have exempted food and prescription drugs from the state sales tax and made up the loss of revenue by increasing individual and corporate income taxes and the tax on pari- muluel wagering. The committee voted 12-1 in support of a "do not pass" rec ommendation, which has the effect of killing the measure. Rep. Robert Johnston ol Little Rock, sponsor for the bill said that by exempting fooc and medicine from the 3 pel cent sales tax there would have been a loss of about $30 millioi TI general revenues a year. He md proposed an increase in the tax rate on the upper levels cf taxable income of individuals and corporations and an increase in the tax on parimutuel wagering of 6 and 7 per cent. The committee also killed a bill by Rep. Gale Windsor of Little Rock to exempt taxis that are operated under a municipal franchise from the state gasoline tax. The tax would have been refunded to the cab operators. A lawyer speaking for the bill. Glenn Walther of Little Rock, said the bill would not cost the state more than $90,000 per year in lost revenues. He said it would enable financially pinched taxi operators to continue offering services to the public. Broken Into C. L. Tolly ot Bentonville told Fayetteville police Tuesday that between Feb. 21 and Tuesday his car, left parked at the Washington County Sales Barn had been broken into and ; combination tape player-radio and 12 tapes taken. He placet the value of the missing items at $219. ArVanui TIMES, W«4.. ftfc, M, T97* FAYITTIVILLI, ARKANSAS Session Ends March 8 Extension Of Legislature To Be Discussed LITTLE ROCK t A P ) -House Democrats picked two of their number Tuesday to meet with Senate representatives to discuss extending the current session of the 69th Arkansas aeneral Assembly or recessing 'it until later. The 60-day session is scheduled to end March 8. but the work will not have been completed by then. Rep. Ray S. Smith Jr. of Hot Springs, elected majority leader in the caucus, and Rep. B.D. "Doug" Brandon of Little Rock, elected majority whip, were designed to represent the House in talks with the Senate. Smith said that if there were a recess, he hoped the legislature would not take off more than two weeks before coming back to work. He said a recess might be necessary in order to give the legislative staff time to prepare appropriation bills for consideration by the General Assembl Appropriation matters make up the bulk of the General Assembly's unfinished work. Smith also said he would like to keep on working without a recess if it appeared that the legislature and complete its business within two weeks after March 8. He also said the House group would seek to determine if some accord could be reached with the Senate on resolving the stalemate over state aid Lew E v e r y d a y 'Discount Price U S D A .
