UNIFAX Lawyer Like MONTGOMERY (UPI) — An attorney tot two young black girls who were sterilized under supervision of a federally funded agency said they were treated "like a farmer would treat his cattle" with no feeing for their right to bear children. Morris Dees, who represented Minnie Relf, 14, and her sister Mary Alice Relf, 12. In a federal court suit, said Wednesday that the Montgomery Community Action Committee Inc., was "guilty of fraud" if it tried to justify the sterilization. Dees has asked a federal court to grant relief to the two Montgomefy girls by awarding them $1 (million and ordering that the sterilization be reversed in a delicate operation that he said was only available in New York and Sweden. Seeks Court Ruling He also sought a federal court ruling that twould prohibit the sterilization of other blacks under similar circumstances. The Relf suit claimed that the girls* mother was illiterate and thought her daughters were going to be given birth control shots when she made her "X" on the authorization form. "These people were treated like a farmer would treat his cattle," Dees charged. 'They simply were castrated with no thought to human decency and the right of these girls to bear children. "They iwere totally Insensitive," he said. If these people try to blame their gross misconduct on the girls' parents then they are guilty of fraud." Howard Phillips, director of the Office of Economic Opportunity, was named one of the defendants. The Community Actibn Committee had received federal funds from the OEO until last March when it came under the jurisdiction of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare but still was federally subsidized. Another defendant, Joseph Conklin, director of the Community Action Committee, said he did not think the agency was guilty of any wrongdoing. He Says She Understood Conklin said the girls' mother, Mrs. Minnie Relf, fully understood the immediate and far-reaching effects tubular sterilization. of the 4 4 IJ 4* ff w * ft '4 - ft • • ft • 4 • F Skylab Pictures Show Life Easy Thing in Outer Space HOUSTON (UPI) graphs taken by the Skylab astronauts make the work of America's first space physician look easy, with a pilot floating upside down in weightlessness, giving the doctor a good look P North Henderson Couple Honored NOE/ffl HENiDiERSON—Rev. and Mrs. Allen HMng were euests of honor at a pfcxbluck shower following the Photo-down the patient's throat.

Veteran astronaut Conrad is grinning from ear to ear in another picture after using the first space shower. The photos further confirmed what Conrad, Kerwin and pilot Paul J. Weitz had said about the ease of living in cavernous space station during their record 28-day flight. Picture Shows Special Cap Another picture brought back showed Kerwin wearing a special cap that recorded his brain and heart functions while he was asleep. The space physician also was pictured lying in an iron lung­ like device that checks to see if astronaut's cardiovascular system is becoming weightless space, since doesn't have to work as hard. In the photo of the medical examination, Conrad looks like he's doing most of the work of putting himself into position for Kerwin to inspect his throat. The spacecraft commander floated up and braced himself on the lab's ceiling with his feet, while Kerwin hung onto the floor. Two other three-man crews are to occupy Skylab for 56-day missions each this year. The next group, Alan L. Bean, Owen K. Garriott and Jack R. Lousma, was expected to get a firm launch date of July 28„ a later than originally planned, sometime this week. Good Physical Shape The second group of space pilots was reported in good physical shape Wednesday after lengthy medical tests to make sure they are still ready to try and double the first crew's record. "There were no abnormal findings of any kind," said Dr. Royce Hawkins, the chief astronaut physician. The first crew was also almost completely recovered after spending the longest period in weightlessness that man has ever experienced. "We are confident the crew will return to their pre-flight norm by the end of this week," said Dr. . John Zeiglschmid, another astronaut doctor. mm I'M 9' 3*. * 4 * I* Prices Good thru July 4th LUCITE HOUSE PAINT 0U PONK Reg. 9.98 Gal. ORES IN AH HDUfl nil Gal. Gal.
