4B, Statesman-Journal, balem, Ore., Monday, September 8, 1 980 Northwest School reviews tteen clinic Coast Guard ends search for 5 on boat NORTH BEND (AP) - The Coattt Guard has suspended its search for five people aboard a shrimp boat missing off the Oregon coast for more than a week. Dense fog forced the Coast Guard to curtail the air-sea search for the HO-foot, Astoria-based Liebling on Saturday, and the search was suspended indefinitely that night, officials said. Missing are the boat's skipper, Dale Dixson, 40, of Hammond; his three sons, Rusty, 18; Jason, 15; and Caleb, 8, all of Crescent City, Calif.; and crewman Mike Goergen, 26, of Brookings. The vessel was last seen Aug. 28 off the southern Oregon coast. The Coast Guard abandoned its search after 4 Mi days, but resumed it Saturday after family members said Dixson may have been fishing farther south than the original search area. Portland issues alert for Dutch elm disease PORTLAND (AP) - The city of Portland has issued a Dutch elm disease alert after learning that two American elms in a northwest neighborhood were infested with the potentially devastating fungus. The trees were removed by Bureau of Parks and Recreation workers and buried in the St. Johns Landfill. Bureau officials planned to test all other elms within a three-block radius to determine whether the disease had spread. A visual survey of all 5,000 elms in the city is set to begin today. Other cities, especially in the East and Midwest, have lost virtually all their elm trees after the fungus, carried by the European bark beetle, established a foothold, according to City Forester Alex Wynstra. He said there is no evidence that an outbreak of Dutch elm disease earlier this summer in Eugene has spread to Portland. At least a dozen trees in Eugene were affected. UO dean named head of international group EUGENE (AP) - Richard M. Steers, associate dean for academic affairs at the University of Oregon College of Business Administration, has been named the president of the international Academy of Management. Fire trails encircle fast-moving blaze CHEHALIS, Wash. (AP) - A fast-moving fire that blackened 360 acres, including part of a Douglas fir plantation, was circled by fire trails Sunday, Department of Natural Resources officials said. The fire, on ITT Rayonier land in Lewis County, was apparently the result of a slash fire that rekindled. Eastern company buys Yellow Pages printer PORTLAND (AP) - United Publishers Corp., which publishes United Yellow Pages neighborhood directories in California and Portland, has been purchased by NYNEX Corp., the regional Bell operating company for New York and New England. United Publishers has 22 employ ees at its Beaverton headquarters. The company published 72,000 directories in July that cover Ti-gard, Lake Oswego, Multnomah and Sherwood. Another 80,000 will be published in October covering western Washington County, including Beaverton, Hillsboro and Forest Grove. Insurance firm buys Oregon Automobile PORTLAND (AP) - General Accident Insurance Co. of Philadelphia has announced that it has acquired Oregon Automobile Insurance Co. and its wholly owned subsidiary, North Pacific Insurance Co. The Portland-based Oregon Automobile has operated in the state since 1925 and writes primarily commercial automobile, homeowner's, commercial property and workers' compensation coverage. Pacific NW Bell adds to equal access lines PORTLAND (AP) - Pacific Northwest Bell had made equal access long distance telephone service available to nearly 2 million lines through 104 central offices in Oregon and Washington. That leaves about 750,000 lines, mostly in Washington, that the company has yet to convert, John Unverfeth, a Northwest Bell spokesman, said. The conversion is part of the change brought about by the separation of American Telephone & Telegraph Co., which provides long-distance telephone service, and the regional Bell telephone companies. Equal access means customers can use and dial the long-distance carrier of their choice by simply dialing 1 rather than a string of numbers for any other carrier than AT&T. About 80 percent of Oregon customers have equal access. Bob Smith, public relations manager for AT&T, said that more than three-fourths of the telephone customers in Oregon and nationwide choose AT&T. The second choice in Oregon and nationally is MCI Communications Inc. Crew of freighter given wage increase VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) Chilean crew members of a Greek-registered freighter who went on strike in Vancouver harbor a week ago have won wage increases of up to 50 percent and improvements in living conditions on board, the Chilean consul general said. Joaquin Grubner said the Chileans give strong credit to Vancouver unions for helping settle the strike on favorable terms for them. The crew members have rejoined the freighter Dias, which set sail early Friday, and are on their way to their next port of call in Mexico with a cargo of grain and potash. The dispute between the 11 -member Chilean crew and the ship's owners had been simmering for months, but they waited until they reached Vancouver before striking. As soon as they arrived here, they contacted the International Transport Workers Federation, which got them a lawyer, helped organize a picket line and arranged hotel accommodations for the strikers. introducing weight Loss Clinic's r X ; , t 1 THE FASTEST WEICHT LOSS PROGRAM EVER!

PORTLAND (AP) The opening of a teen health center at a city high school stirred a public furor over whether students would be visiting the clinic for birth control pills and other contraceptive aids and Information. But in the first five months of operation, the majority of Roosevelt High School students who stopped in at the center sought routine medical care, and only IS percent of the visits concerned reproductive matters. A breakdown on use of the clinic is contained in a report by the Multnomah County Health Division, which operates the center with the Portland School District. Later this month the district and the county will hold public meetings on the possibility of starting similar clinics at three other Portland high schools. Matthew Prophet, district superintendent, is expected to decide on placement of the additional health centers during the first week of October. The county report on the Roosevelt clinic shows that 345 of the school's 983 students, 35 percent, visited the clinic. Acute health problems, primarily infections and injuries, accounted for 45 percent of the visits, Other reasons, in addition to reproductive health care, included immunizations, physical exams and blood pressure screening. Reproductive health care included consultation and treatment for menstrual disorders, pregnancy tests, birth control information and prescriptions, prenatal care, postpartum care, and diagnosis and treatment of sexually transmitted diseases. Of the 43 prescriptions for contraceptives, 18 students received prescriptions for the first time. The other 25 sought new prescriptions for a contraception method initially prescribed by another health-care source. All of the students who were given prescriptions had been sexually active before coming to the clinic. r GRACE TO YOU Dl...a tuna la anil llltill lo Dr. lohll MacArthur lr.-Toolc 'Ralsinf Your Family' - j I . .nn tharafnr UhoHVIt I Hmmta these aayngf of mini amd taam I will linen mm iu " " built nil home on We rocx pro (inj .... minal Mathiw 7:24 CHECK YOUR FOUNDATION TUNE IN TO DR.
