' ' ' NEW YORK (UPI) - A group of angry young doctors interrupted an American Medical Association (AMA) meeting yesterday, and amid catcalls from the audience accused the organization of "criminal" and "racial" practices. Cries of "go to hell" and "shut up" greeted the remarks made by a spokesman for the dissidents and a number of AMA supporters in the audience hurled ashtrays at the demonstrators. About 50 doctors got up and walked out of the auditorium. Dr. Dwight L. Wilbur, AMA president, in a speech delayed 15 minutes by the protesters, took a middle-of-the-road position and warned .the conferees that the national commitment to public health was here to stay and the AMA should lead it. ; The nation's top medical o'ffi- Tomorrow: Apollo Guide A full page Apollo Moon Landing Guide'will appear in tomorrow's Tucson Daily Citizen.

U;'S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare, also addressed the 'assembly. ; He delivered a mild speech in ·which he called for the cooperation of the government and the medical professional in solving critical health problems facing the nation. It was the first session of the four-day .annual conference and it had gotten.off on a patriotic · note with a Marine Corps drum and bugle contingent playing, "The Star Spangled Banner," {Nixon To Add British Visit WASHINGTON (AP) - The White House announced today that President Nixon will confer with Prime Minister Harold Wilson of Great Britain at a British air base on Aug. 3. ; This will be the last stopping ; point on the President's round- the-world trip which will take . him to the Apollo 11 splashdown in the Pacific, to several coun- ' tries in Southeast Asia, and .to Communist Romania. / .' - - ' * ' ' i The stop in England bad not I been announced, previously. But the White House said it would be · 'impossible for Nixon to fly nonstop from Romania to Washington so his plane will set down in England for refueling and,servicing. while the assembled stood at attention. doctors The Marine group hardly had left the Imperial Ballroom of the Americana Hotel when the dissidents marched to the podium, seized the microphone from Dr. Wilbur and demanded to be heard. After some shouting, Dr. Richard Kunnes, representing a coalition of liberal health organizations, was granted two minutes to state his case. '.. Kunnes, a senior resident in psychiatry at New York's Albert Einstein Hospital, accused the AMA dele- gales of indifferences to the medical needs of the country. "The American Medical Association is really the American Murder Association," he said amid a chorus of boos. "You're the criminals," he said, "who rather than developing a preventative health program have prevented health programs. You're the criminals, who through your monopolistic, exclusionary and racist practices, have created a vast shortage of health manpower, resulting in a needless death of countless millions." Control Data Sets Tucson Operations By RICHARD E. WILBUR Citizen Business Editor Control Data Corp., one of the nation's largest computer manufacturers, announced today it has an option to purchase 535 acres here and intends to build a factory. The Minneapolis-based company "is presently developing plans for optimum utilization of this land" bordering Interstate 10 east of Wilmot Road, said NorbertR. Berg, vice president for administration and personnel. He said Control Data intends to exercise its option after the Pima County Board of Supervisors rules'July 22 on light and heavy industrial zoning requested for the land. The County Planning Zoning Commission has recommended the new zoning. The company did not disclose 'how'large a 'factory it ; contemplates building here nor how many people might be employed in it, pending completion of a master development plan. But the size of the tract, and another step Control Data has taken here, indicate its Tucson operation may be a major one. The company recently acquired: a building at 2310 W. Paradise Lane for manufacture of electronic parts. This will "not necessarily be associated with our plans" for the southeast Tucson land, said G.V. Wise, Conrtol Data information officer. .He said this is a 7,500-square- foot factory which would employ a maximum of 50 persons. In charge of this operation is Dan Schaller, general manager of the company's supervisory control division. Berg said that with such extensive land as the 535-acre tract readily available, "Control Data will be able to respond more rapidly to expansion requirements." He called Tucson an excellent choice as a site for the firm, because the community "reflects the growth potential that characterizes Control Data." Wise said the company was attracted by "the favorable supply" of labor. "We come to the community as a 'clean' industry," Berg said, "bringing none of the industrial activities that could add pollution or smog fo the fine environment." Control Data Corp. manufactures advanced computer systems, ranging from a small scale 1700 computer to what it calls a "super-scale" 7600, and related equipment and supplies. In Ihe Tucson area, the University of Arizona uses a CDC 6600 for research projects and instruction, the Kitt Peak observatory uses a CDC 6400,- other CDC computers are at the Army's Strategic Communications Command at Ft. Huachuca and at Bell Aerosystems Co. Total gross revenues of Control Data last year were $-138 million, nearly a 34 per cent increase from the 1067 revenues total of $326.9 million. , The company says it manufactures the second broadest line of "peripheral" -- related -equipment in the industry. Included in this line are optical character readers, large capacity disk files, disk storage drives, magnetic tape handlers, magnetic drums, high, performance chain printers, drum printers and electronic visual displays. Control Data is a major supplier to the Department of Defense and the. National Aeronautics and Space Administration. It has about 37,000 employes at various plants and operations and operates in more than 5 million square feet of space. Manufacturing plants are located in Minneapolis, Nebraska, Michigan, New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland and California, : and abroad in Hong - Kong, Korea, the Netherlands, France and Mexico. Control Data also has marketing and supporting service organizations in 49 cities in the United States and in 30 foreign countries. Asked about Control Data's contacts in 'deciding to come to Tucson with its new operation, Wise said that : Joseph Wilcox, development director of Tucson Gas Electric, was "extremely helpful." RELAXED DORM RULES UA Study Habits To Improve? By JAY HALL Citizen Staff M'riter More liberal dormitory, fraternity and sorority regulations approved Saturday for the University of.Arizona by the Board of Regents will be met "with great pleasure" by the students, a campus leader predicts. Mark Ginsberg, president of the student body, added that one of the advantages of allowing members of the opposite sex in the campus housing units is that "some students at last will be able to get some real studying done." Explaining that seemingly ironical statement, Ginsberg said that now "some dumb'guys can sit down with some smart girls and go over their weak study spots. "Until these new rules, about the only places;you could have any kind of mixed-sex group study were in the noisy, cafeteria or. out on the grass where you had little privacy and often bad lighl- . ing." . . ' · · · ; Ginsberg predicted, however, that there will be some campus lodging units that will elect to preserve the status quo and spurn the liberalized rules. Each unit will decide for itself whether to adopt the new regulations. . '. . The new rules permit women to have male company in their dorms or sorority houses and will permit men to have women in the dormitories and fraternity houses. Limitations, however, have been drawn up to prevent any wild abuse of the privileges. , In those units which adopt the' new plan, women may .check out keys if they wish to stay out past the regular closing hour of their campus house. Women under 21 will have to have written parental consent for the key privilege. Ginsberg said one benefit is expected to be an influence tot ward tidier rooms and more orderly decorum among the campus housing tenants. · : "With the possibility that a girl may be coming down the hallway (or a man in the case of women's housing), the students are going to be more on their toes than before," he said.
