144 -- August 17,1975* Sunday ·^^ ** *- Detroit Busing Plan Is Rejected by Judge From Page One DeMascio established guidelines for achieving racial balance Saturday, then returned the proposal to the school board for adoption and implementation of a final plan. Guidelines outlined by the court included creation of comprehensive programs for in-service training, bilingual-multiethnic studies, counseling and career guidance, school community relations and a nondiscriminatory testing program. DeMascio indicated he was more concerned with the quality of education than with any specific busing proposal. He said the desegregation plan must follow the court's guidelines "to eradicate the effects of past segregation." Coleman Young, Detroit's first black mayor, told reporters he was pleased with the emphasis on quality education. He urged that all Detroit residents examine the court's ruling calmly. He said he would do everything' in his power to see that pupils are protected at the schools, adding that he did net expect any flareups. "1 don't believe we have in Detroit the ingredients for another Boston or a Little Rock," he said, referring to the violence at the two cities over attempted desegregation of schools. * * * IN LANSING, Gov. William Milliken said he thought the court was following a wise course in deciding the matter of school desegregation. "Hasty implementation of an ill-considered plan would serve no one" he said.. "I must add. however, that 1, like many, others, have serious doubts that busing is a workable or desirable solution to the current problems facing public education in the nation's school system. The plan could include forced busing of some students, but probably not before the second semester begins in February. DeMascio asked that the board submit a schedule by which it would rid the predominantly black district of predominantly white schools. -APWlrephoto Several Hundred Persons March in Detroit in Support of Busing Detroit School System, Fifth Largest, Is 74 Per Cent Black Sale of Seven Chrysler Models Halted by California Board SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP)-The California Air Resources Board said Saturday it is halting sales of seven Chrysler Corp. models in the state for "continuing and massive violations" of smog control laws. ARB Chairman Tom Quinn said Chrysler also has been fined $328,200. He said the company has made 6,564 "high-polluting" 1975 cars, and California law allows for a $50 fine per car. The ARB ruling, effective Monday, applies to 1975 Chrysler New Yorkers, New- ports and Imperials, Dodge Monacos and Royal Monacos, and Plymouth Gran Fu- rys and Gran Fury Broughams, the ARB said. It described the stop-sale order as the strongest disciplinary action ever taken in California against an auto maker. All the models have Chrysler's largest U.S. Drug Companies 'Taking Advantage' Of Weak Latin Laws automobile engine, 440 cubic inches, the ARB said. * * * IT SAID MORE than 25 per cent of the cars with that engine failed the state's assembly-line emissions tests. California's emissions standards are more strict than national standards. Many of the same models were involved in two earlier recalls this year totaling 32,000 Chrysler products in California. Quinn, who was appointed this year, by Gov. Edmund Brown Jr., said Chrysler's "completely inadequate response" to the recalls made Saturday's action necessary. "We had hoped to avoid this new action against Chrysler, but the company' refusal or inability to clean up its cars leaves us no choice," Quinn said. Under the order, dealers who sell the banned models could have their licenses suspended or revoked, the ARB said. JV.Y. Times Service · WASHINGTON - A research study funded by Consumers Union has found evidence that multinational drug companies J 'take advantage of a weaker regulatory situation" in Latin America "to pursue labeling and advertising policies of a dangerous kind." " Specifically, the study found that the companies "frequently minimize risks and exaggerate claims" for their drugs in a-way they cannot do in this country because of federal regulations.According to the study, for the sake of sales volume, the drug manufacturers: · "Will recommend the same drug for a much wider variety of conditions in Latin 'America than are permitted to do in the United States." »-"Include in a drug's Latin American labeling only incomplete or modified versions. . . of necessary restrictions" in spite of "the critical importance or warning doctors, pharmacists and patients -about these special dangers." '.. »-Sometimes sell "products that have caused serious or even fatal adverse reactions. . . in Latin America as though they .were completely safe." Vin at least one case, recommend a higher dosage of a drug than is recommended in the United States. The drugs discussed in the study are all sold only by prescription in the United States. While they may nominally also require a prescription in Latin America, the study says they are in practice widely sold without a prescription and the drug companies are aware of this. It is this direct availability to the consumer, the study contends, that makes labeling and advertising all the more important. The research comes in the wake of a statement by Dr. Halfdan T. Mahler, director-general of the World Health Organization, last April that "drugs not authorized for sale in the country of origin... are sometimes exported and marketed in developing countries; other drugs are promoted and advertised in those countries for (illnesses) that are not approved by the regulatory agencies of the countries of origin." "While these practices may conform to "legal requirements." Mahler said, "they are unethical and detrimental to health." ASKED TO respond to the study, tentatively titled "Hunger for profits. U.S. Food and Drug Multinationals in Latin America and the Caribbean" 11 of the drug manufacturers named had a variety of reactions. Basically, however, the manufacturers emphasized that they obey labeling requirements in the countries in which they operate and that those requiremqnts may. be more appropriate for those countries than standards established for the United States by the Food and Drug Administration. As the Bristol-Myers company put it. "The practice of medicine in the United States is not necessarily regarded as the. benchmark of medicine throughout the world, nor should it be. Product documentation will sometimes vary in individual countries to reflect local needs, economics, health conditions and government regulations." Among the other American companies named were Winthrop Products Inc., a subsidiary of Sterling Drug; E.R. Squibb Sons, and G.D. Searle and Co. The draft manuscript, provided to the New York Times by its author, Robert J. Ledogar, was prepared under a grant from Consumers Union, the consumer organization. Research for it was begun in the fall of 1973, and the writing was completed early this year. Ledogar is a former Roman Catholic priest with a master's degree in city planning from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He is currently a staff member of the department of economic and social affairs of the United Nations in New York QUINN SAID other Chrysler models failed emissions tests, but the failures were less serious and did not prompt a ban. "However, we may be forced to stop sales of additional models if Chrysler's performance does not improve during the 1976 model year," he said. In Detroit, a Chrysler spokesman said: "We have worked and will continue to work with the California Air Resources Board on the highly technical issue of auditing cars to meet California emission standards." "Only a small number of cars are involved in this problem. We have developed tests and equipment methods we believe will resolve the issue and upon receipt of ARB's approval, we will correct the problem. "It should be noted that a relatively small number of engines did not meet the audited tests. California air quality remains virtually unaffected by the number of engines involved."
