Continued from page 1 minds in at least some of the students' cases. "What this really amounts to is that the immigration office feels that our live-in program in conjunction with the hospital is not in accordance with their requirements," I .el and explains. But, he adds, just last year the college was led to believe, after a visit from an immigration official, that "the program was okay." A spokesman for the immigration office in St. Paul declined to comment on the situation other than to say that foreign students '"know when they come into the country that they are not allowed to work. If they do work, they are violating immigration laws and can be Reported." Borgen notes that a major concern of the immigration office is to insure that foreigners are not taking jobs from U.S. students. He points out that neither the work the students do at the hospital nor the rooms they occupy in the dorms should be construed as taking away any opportunities from other members of the community. The students are working primarily as hospital aides, he explains, helping with such activities as personal care, engineering, library and physical therapy. "These are not jobs that would normally be required to be filled by paid employees," Borgen says. If students weren't performing these functions, he adds, the hospital would not be hiring people to do them—they just wouldn't be done. Theroomsthe students live in on the state hospital campus are in buildings that were not being used. "Those buildings were vacant," Borgen says. "They were not needed for patient activities." He reports that the work- study program has been operating since 1965, with students earning credit through the college sociology department since 1971. Further complicating the situation, and making the case even more serious, for at least three of the students, is that they are from Ethiopia, a country which has experienced a military take-over since they left home. The students, "Z" Eshetu, "Sadie" Brfete and "Ruth" Tegene say they can no longer receive money from home since their parents' property has been nationalized. They can't stay in the U.S. without money, but they'can't get any money from home and they apparently can't work here. At the same time, it would be difficult for them to return to Ethiopia right now because of continuing civil turmoil—they presently receive very little news from their home country and continue to worry about relatives and friends there. At present, they say, they don't even have enough money to return to Ethiopi a if forced to leave the U.S. NEWULM, Minn. (AP)-A law off icer was not negligent in the deaths of a couple who died in a car crash while being pursued by the officer, a jury in Brown County District Court decided Friday night. The estate of Mr. and Mrs. Clifford Streich had been seeking $500,000 from the city of Sleepy Eye and the former city police officer, Patrick Krenz, consideration, noting that at one time there was talk of offering political asylum or refugee status to Ethiopians in theU.S. He also hopes that members of the community will be able to help. Borgen notes that in order to comply with the immigration office's instructions, the six foreign students must find housing other than at the hospital by April 30. He is hoping that people in the community will help these students find other housing. "Some of them need financial sponsors as well," he adds. Borgen, like Leland, still •hopes that the immigration office will reconsider its first ruling on the students in the work-study program, noting that it is a great learning experience, especially for the foreign students. '•To their way of thinking, living in the dorm helps them learn the English language faster," he comments. In addition, they are learning skills which may be valuable in their native countries. "We hope that they can take back to their countries some expertise in working with the handicapped," he concludes. who Is now a Brown County deputy sheriff. Tt > Streich couple, who died at the scene of the crash April 20,1974, left 11 children ranging in age from about 2 to 19. Krenz testified he tried to halt the Krenz car because of an alleged traffic violation, but that Streich drove away at speeds up to 90 miles per hour and later crashed at the intersection of Minnesota 68 and Brown County Road 8 near Evan, Minn. Playwright sees his own play KEY WEST, Fla. (AP) "I'll give them anything," playwright Tennessee Williams said after cheering the opening of a local theater production of his play, "Suddenly Last Summer." And anything, the 62-year-old Williams added, might even include writing some new plays for the group. "I thought, for Key West, after all those revolting productions, to see a vigorous, semiprofessional production — it's marvelous," said Williams of the Greene Street Theater's production this week. Leading lady Roxanna Stuart admitted she was nervous when Williams showed up last Sunday to watch a rehearsal. "Usually, when I act, I try to pretend the playwright is there," she said. "But with him, I had to pretend he wasn't there." Continued from page I spection at ports to federal or state employes approved by USDA but would maintain the present system for inland terminals. Grain inspection and weighing now is conducted by private or state agencies certified by USDA. But a series of scandals involving bribery, misgrading, shortweighting and other abuses have discredited the system, and now Congress is set to change it. The Agriculture Department has taken steps to increase federal supervision and has tightened existing regulations to head off further abuses. Those steps also have been taken in hopes that Congress would stop short of a complete federal takeover of the program. In saying he would veto the legislation, Ford told a grain trade meeting in El Paso, Tex., on April 10 that "I see no reason to replace private interests with government controls" in the inspection program. Sen. Robert Dole, R-Kan., planned to offer amendments during floor debate, including one to delete the bill's provision calling for federal takeover of inspections at the 25 inland terminals. Dole also wants to delete a part of the Senate bill which would set up a separate federal agency to handle inspection and to eliminate or modify another provision which would require all large grain companies to register with the government, including disclosures of who OWTIS them.

In March, hatcheries turned out 309.1 million broiler-type chicks, up 11 per cent from 278.1 million hatched in March of last year, l-ast month's hatch also was the largest on record, up from 303 million produced in May 1972, according to a USD A spokesman. Broiler production totaled about 2.9 billion birds in 1975, down 2 per cent from 1974. The record was nearly 3.27 billion broilers in 1972. leans and Houston began investigating the inspection system more than two years ago, more than 100 indictments have been relumed against individuals or grain companies. There have been more than 50 convictions on charges related to the probe. Many foreign buyers have complained of receiving grain which did not match specifications in their orders, including cargoes adulterated with trash, excessive broken kernels and other debris. Farm exports currently are a J2Z-bUlion annual business and grain sales, particularly wheat and corn, make up the largest segment.
