Gerald M. Stern, attorney for the 645 flood survivors involved in the case against Pittston. said the $13.5 million settlement announced Friday still requires approval by U.S. District Court in Charleston. W.Va. The suit, originally for $tt million, was to go to trial at Charleston July 15. It stemmed from the February 1972 collapse of a coal waste dam that sent a wall of water down the Logan County valley, killing 125 persons and leaving more than 4.000 home- less. The dam was owned by the Buffalo Mining Co.. a Pittston subsidiary. * The formula by which the money will he distributed to the plaintiffs is yet to be determined because of the varying claims. Stern said. He pointed out some that claimants suffered property damage, some lost family members and others had "mental and emotional damage." _ NELSON TMRSFER CO. HEAVY HMUNG P.O.

Proxmire Calls V. A. 'Shoddy' WASHINGTON - (AP) Sen. William Proxmire, D- Wis., who is on the Senate appropriations panel has accused the Veterans Administration of shoddy management of its specialized medical facilities. In a statement issued Saturday, Proxmire said V.A. "has demonstrated a distressing lack of control over the proliferation of specialized medical facilities that are superfluous to the needs of our veterans." He said the facilities are under utilized and ov- erequipped. Proxmire. who heads the panel that oversees appropriations for V.A., wrote V.A. Administrator Donald E. Johnson asking a comprehensive outline by July 30 of the agency's plans to re-evaulate some of its more specialized programs. The senator cited these examples of poor management: » V.A. spent $465,000 on a kindney-transplant unit that has resulted in two transplants in three years. A. V.A. facility in the Bronx, N.Y., has supervoltage cancer treatement equipment, costing as much as $500,000 per unit, that is being used at only 30 per cent of capacity. - *· V. A. medical advisory committees in Chicago and New York say 70 to 80 per cent of kidney dialysis patients could be properly treated in less costly facilities and a substantial number of personnel could be eliminated. Lutherans Veto Small -iypi- Delegates to the seventh biennial convention of the Lutheran Church in America here have voted against holding a smaller annual convention. A study committee had called for an annual convention of about 300 delegates. The Current convention, meeting" here through Wednesday, has 679 delegates. The report also recommended that larger conventions of 700-1,000 delegates be held periodically. Also on Friday, the delegates adopted a resolution calling for a review of the role of women in the denomination, America's largest Lutheran Body. "Basically it's looking at the old view of God as 'He,'" a church spokesman said. Words like "mankind" are also to be studied. Among other things the review is to deal with systems of appointing men and women to decision-making bodies in the church, and with the images and language used regarding women, education, worship and church publications. ;A survey of the delegates conducted by the c h u r c h showed that most are over 40 years old and are professionals. Eighteen per cent of the delegates are women. One of the denomination's dozen female pastors is among the clergy delegates.
