Solzhenitsyn Says U.S. "Complacent" WASHINGTON (UPI) - Exiled Soviet writer Alexander Solzhenitsyn has told Congress America is "crfmplacent in its affluence" and reluctant to understand the suffering caused by the Soviet government. % , He spoke Tuesday at a reception in his honor in the Old Senate Caucus Room as the United States and Soviet Union dramatized their policy of detente by launching their joint Apollo- Soyuz space spectacular. Solzhenitsyn questioned whether he had succeeded in his public speeches here and in New York to move the United States - "which is so complacent in its affluence" - toward an ap- , preciation of the worldwide threats of Soviet authoritarianism. Referring to the Soviet-promoted Conference on European Security and Cooperation which President Ford is to attend in Helsinki this month, the bearded, Nobel prize winner taunted the legislators: "In these very weeks when an amicable agreement of diplomatic shovels will bury and pack down still-breathing bodies in a common grave, I tried to explain to the Americans that in 1973 - v the tender dawn of detente - was when the starvation rations of Soviet camps was made even thinner." Solzhenitsyn said that as detente has progressed, Soviet authorities have refined their "system of punishment" by introducing forced labor for prisoners in solitary confinement who are "cold, hungry, without fresh air, and working to impossible output norms." The Russian author has won world renown for.his historical novels on Soviet prison camp life. He recently was Voted honorary U.S. citizenship by the Senate, but not yet by the House. He told senators and congressman the "overhwelming suffering" of the Russian past was a message "which comes to you, as it were, from the future." Draft Used Lift Cuban SAN JOSE, Costa Rica (UPI) - A draft resolution circulating at'the Organization of American States convention today asked that each member of the group be allowed to choose on its own whether it wants to lift sanctions . against Cuba. The organization opened its meeting with an air of expectation that the Caribbean island's 11 years of hemispheric isolation would be lifted. A U.S. of• ficial said Washington expects the .sanctions to be repealed. The draft, called the "Freedom of Action Resolution," is marked "confi- .dential" in the top right-hand corner, is written in English and was attributed by some Latin American diplomats to the U.S. delegation. U.S. officials said they had no knowledge of the document, but it is no secret that Washington has shifted considerably from its previous position of strict neutrality to one of more active support for ending the Cuban ban. The four-point draft resolution sets forth three alternatives on dealing with the Cuban problem, but all have the premise that the question of relations with Cuba is a bilateral one that should be regulated by the national interests of each OAS nation.

Special Education Report Told URBANA, 111. (UPI) - A University of Illinois faculty report has recommended that the state Board of Education supervise and pay for all special education programs for gifted and handicaped Illinois children. The repor,t, released Tuesday, is entitled ''Special Education, Needs Costs - Methods of Financing," and was requested by the School Problems Commission of the Illinois Legislature. It recommended that the state Board of Education finance and supervise all special education now 6ffered to exceptional children by private schools and agencies, by public school To Help Sanctions William Mailliard, the U.S. ambassador to the OAS, said Tuesday night opponents of the sanctions apparently have the necessary 14 votes to end the trade embargo of Cuba. "I think there are 14 votes.-.'and there is a chance that there might be more than 14 votes," Mailliard said at a news conference Tuesday night. The ambassador said he doubts the OAS will vote on the sanctions at its current meeting, which, was called to revise a 28-year-old hemispheric defense treaty; •-•..-.• , But Mailliard said the delegates might hold a special discuss the Cuban issue after the 12-day meeting ends July 28. The OAS meeting, beginning today, was called to discuss the 1947 Inter- American Mutual Assistance Treaty, a hemispheric defense pact known as the Rio Treaty. The sanctions, agreed on in 1964 under the Rio Treaty, imposed a hemispheric embargo on trade with Premier Fidel Castro's Communist government in Cuba. Opponents of the sanctions failed to get the necessary two-third majority to lift them at last fall's OAS conference in Quito, Ecuador. districts and by seven state agencies. Twenty-three school districts provided information on educational costs to Prof. Wiiliam McLure, director of the Bureau of Education Reseach at the U. of I. college of education. McLure and four other professors wrote tl.e report. The researchers found that in the 23 districts, 20 per cent of the extra money needed to provide special education was from the state, 30 per cent from federal sources and the remaining 50 per cent came from funds available to local school boards. The report said present state aid for special education is based on' the teachers, classrooms and busing a district devotes to exceptional students, and not on the number of students who need extra help. School districts cooperating in the study included Bloomington 87, Blue Island 130; Champaign 4; Chicago 299; Decatur 61; Downers Grove 58; Ecl- wardsville 7; Galesburg 205; Harrisburg 3; Jacksonville 117; Marion 2; Mattoon 2; Moline 40; Mount Carmel 40; Mount Vernon 201 and 80; Oak Lawn 126; Peoria 150; Quincy 172; Robinson 2; Rock Island 41; Rockford 205; Vandalia 203.
