Oil reports Children (Continued from Page 1) said. "More kids may be coming to the youth centers, but I suspect that they're borderline cases that could have easily gone either way." Besides quicker referrals to the youth centers, program directors say SRS caseworkers are cutting corners by underestimating placement needs. Tougher kids are being put in less-structured programs, which are cheaper but inappropriate. Foster care services are divided into six levels, with daily rates ranging from $5.25 to $105. Most out-of- home placements for older children cost from $23.45 to $51.75 a day. Placements at one of the youth centers average $84.25 a day. "To see a 'Level IV kid' in a Level IV program is an absolute rarity," said Bruce Linhos, associate director of The Villages program in Topeka and past president of the Kansas Association of Licensed Private Child Caring Agencies. "Everyone in the system wants to do what's best for these kids, but there are some funding realities that have to be recognized. And if that means putting a Level V kid in a Level IV program, well, that's what they're doing. It's cheaper, but it puts an incredible strain on the program." By The New York Times WASHINGTON - Federally financed medical review agencies have begun disciplinary proceedings against more than 1,100 doctors and hospitals around the nation in the past few months, charging them with providing unnecessary or poor medical treatment. The number of cases has increased dramatically over previous years, according to federal officials, although comparative numbers were not available. Most of the new cases, whose processing began after the review agencies were reorganized in each state in 1984, are in the early phase. Officials of the program say many cases may be dropped or resolved without formal action. But the review panels have the power to bar a doctor or hospital permanently or temporarily from treating beneficiaries 'of Medicare, the government program of health care for the elderly. Andrew Webber, executive vice president of the American Medical Peer Review Association, the umbrella organization for the review agencies, said the increase was considered "a significant new trend." At the Health and Human Services Department, Anthony Tirone, a director in the Office of Medical Review, said: "We expect this is going to be like a snowball rolling down a hill. Ydu'll see the numbers continue increasing geometrically." The disciplinary actions are being brought by state-based professional review organizations, or PROs, under a new regulation adopted for them in May. The review agencies are staffed by doctors and nurses who study thousands of patients' records, among other monitoring methods, trying to reduce Medicare spending by reducing unnecessary treatments. They also are charged with making sure patients get care of high quality. By Jan. 1, when the new regulation had been in effect seven and a half months, professional review organizations had begun proceedings against 950 doctors and 183 hospitals. For the doctors, 744 cases involved allegations of poor quality in care, and in 206 cases the PROs said the doctor consistently provided unnecessary treatment. For the hospitals, 67 cases involved poor quality in care and 116 involved unnecessary treatment. Also by Jan. 1, New York state's PRO had begun nine disciplinary proceedings, New Jersey's had begun five and Connecticut's had begun two. From 1973 to 1984 the state-based review agencies formally disciplined 70 doctors or hospitals, temporarily or permanently barring them from treating Medicare patients. Federal officials say they do not have records showing how many cases were opened without resulting in formal disciplining in the period before the agencies were reorganized in 1984, but they are certain that the number of cases opened in the last several months is far larger than in any previous period. Officials say the increase in cases is explained in part by the new regulation, which makes it easier to take action against doctors and hospitals. Philip Nathanson, director of the Health Standards and Quality Bureau of the Health and Human Services Department, said "we're seeing a lot more acceptance among physicians now of the idea" of disciplining their peers. CIA restores its link to American colleges Kansas operators announced 65 new locations, including 22 wildcats, and completed 99 tests during the past week as compared to 67 new locations and 74 completions during the preceding week. Included in the completions were 33 oil wells good for an estimated 2,042 barrels of oil a day, six gas wells at an estimated 1,583,000 cubic feet of gas a day, 54 dry holes, two service wells and four temporarily abandoned wells. The total footage drilled in the completions was about 407,581 feet or an average of 4,117 feet a test.

By The New York Times WASHINGTON — Twenty years after the Central Intelligence Agency was all but banished from American campuses, the CIA says it has reestablished its ties and is receiving research and advice from a growing number of university professors. Robert Gates, the deputy director " of intelligence, said the agency had sought to accelerate a trend, begun under President Carter, of soliciting help from "the best minds in the country." But the CIA's dealings with professors have been challenged by critics in Congress and within the universities as a threat to the independence of academic research. The new emphasis on seeking outside viewpoints was prompted, in part, by a review of past intelligence failures, Gates said. Some of these, such as mistaken predictions in the 1970s about the future of the shah of Iran, could be traced, he said, to the development of a "U.S. government perspective." "There were scholars out there saying the shah was in trouble, and somehow that never got incorporated into any official assessment," Gates said. "What we are after is people who will challenge us constructively, offer us a different perspective, who will stir up the pot a bit and who will help us consider all points of view, particularly the unorthodox. "Large bureaucracies Like this one have difficulty promoting imagination and creativity." Gates said that about a fourth of the agency's intelligence estimates are reviewed in draft form by professors or other outside experts, including retired military people. Previously only a "minuscule" amount of the agency's research was reviewed in this fashion, he said. Since 1982, the CIA has been the host of 75 conferences a year in which its analysts met professors and experts outside the government, Gates said. Only three to four such meetings were held annually in past years. In addition, agency analysts are attending more academic conferences on subjects of interest to the CIA. The questions over the proper relationship between the CIA and academics came into sharp focus at Harvard University late last year in a dispute over the dealings between the agency and Nadav Safran, the head of Harvard University's Center for Middle Eastern Studies. A. Michael Spence, dean of the faculty of arts and sciences, concluded in a report this month that Safran had violated Harvard's rules when he failed to disclose that the CIA had contributed $45,000 to a conference on Islamic fundamentalism held at the university last year. Safran also received a $107,000 grant from the agency to support research on his latest book. Central qualifies for state debate GREAT BEND — Debate teams from Salina Central and Hays high schools qualified for the Class 5A state debate tournament by taking second and first respectively at the regional competition Saturday in Great Bend.

Ell-Saline district receives grant The Ell-Saline School District has received a $2000 grant from the state Department of Economic Development's Community Resource Program. The program's aim is to provide funding to Kansas communities to improve community educationl, social, cultural, and recreational needs. The district will use the grant to provide non-credit classes to the communities of Brookville, Bavaria, and Hedville as part of the Ell- Saline Community Educational Program.
