a GREELEY (Colo.) TRIBUNE Frl., April 13,1173 Alien detention center looks more like a park than a prison By GARY GARRISON Aiiociited Preis Writer LOS FRESNOS, Tex. (AP) With the oleander trees and outdoor tables, it looks more like a city park than a prison yard. But it is a jail and some of the inmates have been back as many as 30 times. They are mostly Mexicans, 'vho have been caught trying to steal across the United States border in search of work. "We try to make it as nice as we can without making it so attractive that they want to come back," said Leon Hallenbach of the U.S Immigration Service Detention Center. The working age men dress in street clothes and spend the hours waiting for a bus ride home or a court appearance by playing baseball, watching television or talking around the outdoor tables. As many as 300 aliens at a time live behind the high wire fence topped by curling strands of barbed wire. A uniformed man in a tower surveys the situation from above. Inside the enclosure, buildings painted light green and white, smell of cleaning fluids. Bunk beds line the barracks walls. Unarmed guards stroll the yard, stopping to chat with the "prisoners." Some of the men housed here have paid as much as $300 to reach the American Midwest, still a land of opportunity where they hope lo find jobs in industry. Most of them wade across the Rio Grande to find work in the fields. "They're not basically bad people or criminals -- they're hungry," Hattenbach said. Hattenbach cited a recent case of a woman from Nicaragua who paid a Matamoros taxi driver (450 for forged papers to get across the border. She was able to cross at Brownsville, but later was ap- prehended by the U.S. Border Patrol near Alice. A spokesman at the U.S. Border Patrol headquarters in San Pedro, Calif., said 35,287 deportable aliens were seized in Texas during the three-month period between December 1972 and the end of February. · The spokesman said almost all the aliens are Mexicans --. most working-age men between 18 and 35. . After arrest, the alien is taken before a magistrate where his rights are explained. A date is then set for a deportation hearing and bond established. Men are held at a detention center such as the one here. Other large centers are at El Paso and El Centre, Calif. Women are housed in the Cameron County Jail at Brownsville or in a local convent. An alien is allowed lo return "voluntarily" or face deportation proceedings. Hattenbach said there is nothing "voluntary" about re, turning.

How much it payi for a ··mi-private room? Leaving you with the rest of the bill! By MARK L. KAUTZ Associated Press Writer STANFORD, Calif. (AP) "Detroit had the tools to lick smog 15 years ago and didn't do a damn thing with them," says a California inventor who claims American automakers ignored an antismog engine he developed in the 1950s. Ralph Heintz says Japan's Honda Motor Co. is now using basically the same design as his to pass 1975 exhaust emission requirements. The federal Environmental Protection Agency on Wednesday granted U.S. car manufacturers a one- year extension lo meet those standards.

AMERICAN FAM --··'»="·-»·«··« M1TO HOm HTALTH IP. JOESTROVAS 20219th Street 352-7778 CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP)-The state of Wyoming has withdrawn its objection to paying workmen's compensation benefits lo survivors of a Fremont County uranium miner on grounds he died of cancer caused by radiation. But that ' contention still is being resisted by Western Slates Mining, the employer of (he late Louis John, a state attorney said. The |case hasn't gone to court yet. Asst. Ally. Gen. Don Painter said Thurs. this is the first time the state had withdrawn its objection to paying benefits for a cancer caused death where the cause was alleged to have been radiation. . Recognition of the dangers of radiation to miners has been on the lawbooks since 1967 but before the state had resisted payment, Painter said. In addition, there are three similar cases still pending, he said. The state is staying out ol one of those although the employer is objecting to payment of benefits. A second case is awaiting decision of District Judge Jack Nicholas of Lander and the third is just getting started. Painter said the state was convinced by records on Johns' physical condition kept by the ·Western Area Occupational Health Laboratory in Utah that he had been exposed to radon 15 times higher than that considered toxic during his work '. ! the mines of Wyoming. He said the laboratory had tried to deep records on various miners for the past 20 years or so and Johns was one of those, they had examined repeatedly. Johns died Nov. 2, 1972 after extensive medical treatment in Ogden and Salt Lake City, Utah for cancer. Painter said there would be a $13,000 widow's payment involved plus payments to the miner's children up to a maximum ol $10,000 total. Heintz says both he and Honda developed a "stratified charge" engine which, like diesel engines, employ pre- combustion chambers to burn fuel completely. Gasoline is fed into a small chamber where it is ignited and then blown into the main firing chamber, Heintz said in an interview Wednesday. American autos, with only one carburetor, do not burn fuel as efficiently, thus causing smog, he added. Heintz, 81, an inventor and engineer who operated an aircraft equipment firm during World War II, said'he became interested in the stratified charge engine after visiting Los Angeles in 1955, where smog caused his eyes to water. At his' ranch laboratory near Stanford University, Heintz said he built five low-emission engines, the first successful model a modified eight-cylinder Chrysler he drove daily. "I got only 18 miles per gallon at lirst, but later got it up to 22," he said. He said his efforts to interest' Detroit automakers in the engine were rebuffed. "No one would listen to me or talk to me. I had a real bad time. 1 couldn't convince them that there was something viable here," Heintz said. Heintz said he experimented with the engines for 12 years and spent $200,000 before he and his partner, shipping magnate Stanley Dollar', abandoned the project. Heintz said he turned his patents over to Stanford, his alma mater, "with the idea being the auto companies would be more willing to talk to a university representative than to an individual." Heintz said he later learned through publications about Honda's engine and feels their engineers may have been aided by his early research. He said his prototypes would not pass new emission standards but that they have "the same potential" as Honda's. The Japanese firm reported it spent $10 million and built more than 100 test engines in developing its dual-carburetor, stratified-charge engine. The National Academy of Sciences ad hoc Committee on Motor Vehicle Emissions said the Japanese engine "has met the 1975certified (emission) standards and bids fair lo meet the 1976 standards."
