THE UKIAH OAIL AIDS panel head resigns WASHINGTON (Al*)—The executive director of President Reagan's advisory commission on AIDS, Linda D. Sheaffer, resigned abruptly after the panel's chairman asked her to leave, government officials said. A White House official said Monday that concerns about Sheaffer stemmed from friction between panel members and the commission's chairman, Dr. W. Eugene Mayberry, who had chosen Sheaffer for the job. "Some of the commissioners have been a little put out as to what they perceive as Mayberry's heavy- handed running of things, so this may be a symbolic deal," said the official, who demanded anonymity. "There was grumbling about his hiring her without any input (from other commissioners)." The official said some panel members also had criticized Sheaffer's work. "1 did hear a lot of complaints by committee mem- Hen that they didn't like her work; they weren't get- ling enough chance for input on witnesses or where they would hold hearings," he said. Sheaffer, a government health officer who had headed the federal Office of Organ Transplantation before she was loaned to the AIDS Commission, left the panel job Friday, said another government official who also demanded anonymity. Attempts to reach Sheaffer on Monday night were unsuccessful, but The New York Times and The Washington Post, which reported on the resignation in today's editions, said she confirmed that she was leaving in interviews Monday. "After the recent meeting of the commission, the chairman asked that I resign," she said, reading a prepared statement. "He did so because of internal disagreements within the commission-that had nothing to do with my overall performance as the executive director." She declined to give details on the disagreements, saying, "To discuss it further will only do further damage to the commission. It proves to me how frightened everyone is that they won* t be able to complete the job assigned to them." Mayberry, who is chief executive officer of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., did not return a call to his home Monday night. The Times reported that Mayberry had argued initially against demands by fellow panel members that Sheaffer be replaced, but he yielded to pressure eventually and asked her to resign. He told the Post that he has "a great deal of admiration and respect" for Sheaffer, but that "under the circumstances, it seemed best" that she leave. The AIDS Commission, appointed July 23, has a year in which to compile a final report on the nation's programs to combat acquired immune deficiency syndrome. EPTEMBER 15.1987—3 JCPenney National Bank High Yield CDs Nuclear 'risk reduction' centers planned for Washington, Moscow 7.42% £7.70 °/c 0 Annual Rate Effective Annual Yield' WASHINGTON (AP) — Soviet Foreign Minister Eduard A. She- vardnadze opened talks today with Secretary of State George P. Shultz on superpower differences over arms control, human rights and Afghanistan. * The three-hour meeting at the State Department preceded a White House session with President Reagan and the signing of an agreement to establish "nuclear risk reduction centers" in the two capitals to lessen the chance of accidental war. The two sides offered downbeat forecasts before the talks opened. But this did not disguise the fact that their shared hope was to accelerate A treaty to ban intermediate-range nuclear missiles for signing at a summit meeting. • On other fronts, Shultz is trying to persuade the Soviets to adopt more lenient emigration procedures and to agree to withdraw 115,000 troops from Afghanistan over a few months' time. Shultz posed for photographs with Shevardnadze in a seventh- floor sitting room outside his off ce. "We always have a handshake on these 1 occasions," Shultz reminded his guest Shevardnadze readily complied. The handful of American and Soviet reporters permitted to watch World— the picture-taking were admonished in advance that they should not ask any questions. Consequently, no questions were put to Shultz or Shevardnadze as they chatted amiably through American and Russian interpreters. The agreement to set up risk reduction centers apparently is the only certain positive outcome of Shevardnadze s visit and his discussion of a wide-ranging agenda with Reagan and Shultz. A senior Reagan administration otticial, bneting reporters Monday at the White House under rules of anonymity, doubted that the treaty could be wrapped up during She- vardnadze's visit or a date set for Soviet leader Mikhail S. Gorbachev to corns to Washington for a sum- mit meeting. The foreign minister brought with him a letter to Reagan from Gorbachev, however, and the U.S. official acknowledged: "We do not know what is in that letter. I do not preclude that he knows he's got dates in that letter." Gennady Gerasimov, the Soviet Foreign Ministry spokesman, declined Monday to say exactly what was in the Gorbachev letter, but he said he thought it was an assessment of U.S.-Soviet relations and how to improve them. Asked in an AP Radio interview if Gorbachev wants to come to a summit in the United States, Gerasimov said he does but only with a "centerpiece" on the table. INS fumes over 'sanctuary' comments SAN ANTONIO, Texas (AP) — A spokesman for Pope John Paul H has denied that the pope meant to endorse the sanctuary movement in a speech this week to Hispanic Roman Catholics here. The Immigration and Naturalization Service said Monday it wanted the Vatican to clarify the pope's remarks of the previous day. The pope praised the "courage and generosity" of those who aid refugees "arriving from the south." These helpers "have sought to show compassion in the face of complex human, social and political realities," the pope said. Joaquin Navarro-Vails, the Vatican's top press officer, denied that the pope had endorsed the sanctuary movement in his address. 7.14% 7.05% 6.77% 1 Year $500 Min. 6 Month $10,000 Min. 6 Month $500 Min. 7.40% 7.30% 7.00% • Interest compounded daily • FDIC insured up to $100,000 per depositor • Interest paid monthly, quarterly, or at maturity Just fill out the coupon below, sign, and enclose with your check or money order to: JCPENNEY NATIONAL BANK P.O.
