* lane Integration lose Under Study KW ORLEANS (AP) - U.S. Judge Frank Ells has taken Tulanc desegregation case er advisement. He hopes to Hi a decision by October. 31 is heard an attorney for two Krb applicants Monday contend legislative act has given the Gversity enough state contact so at it cannot deny the two ad- pssion on racial grounds. John P. Nelson, in closing ar- bmenls, said the issue hi the Ise is not whether Tulane is a Lblic or private institution. Be- ause of an 1884 legislative act, lelson said, the issue is the ex- Iht oi Tulane's slate involvement. ' John Pat Little, arguing on be- l aU of the university, contended here was not enough state con- acts for Tulane to come within he 14th amendment to the U.S. onstitntion. The amendment [rants equal protection under the aw. After hearing the arguments, Judge Ellis gave attorneys three We weeks to file additional nemoranda. Nelson listed these four in- ptances of state involvement: 1. A unique tax exemption not available to other such instilu- lions; 2. An obligation to accept Hie governor, mayor and stale edu- feation superintendent as full, vot- 'ng members of Tulane's Board f Administrators; 3. A requirement to grant schol- |Kships to nominees of Icgisla- ftors; and 4. A reversionary clause under iwhich Tulane could lose control of a $3.5 million piece of property on which a $7 million building stands, lose its rights to award degrees and tose other privileges through failure to comply with Act 43. Nelson argwed that the Tulane Educational Ftand, which operates the university, is bound by Act. 43. Little read portions of the legislative act to the court. He said the word "create" in Act 43 indicated that Tolane University of Louisiana is an entirety different institution from its predecessor, the state-operated University of Louisiana. He said that any changes in the contract must be approved bythe Board of Administrators as well as the state. Countering Nelson's arguments, he said that tax exemptions are not unique and the three state and city officials on the board have never tried to influence it. The two Negro women, Barbara Marie Guillory and Pearlie Hardin Elloie, both from New Orleans, were told they were academically qualified but could not be admitled because of reslric- lions in donations to the university by Paul Tulane and Mrs. Josephine Louise Ncwcomb. Former U. S. Dist. Judge J. Skclly Wright had directed their admission in a summary order, bul Ellis revoked it when he succeeded Wright and directed a full trial on the case's merits. Judge Ellis' ruling was upheld by the 5th U. S. Circuit Court of Appeals which told Ellis to expediate Ihe case. I 1 Indonesia Likely Victor in Papua EDITOR'S NOTE-Hal McClure Blade frequent trips to West New Guinea on assignment dutis$ the long dispute between Indonesia and the Netherlands. By HAL MCCLURE | KIJALA LUMPUR, Malaya (AP) -Indonesia slands an excellenl :hance of coming out on top in my Papuan plebiscite on self-de- perminalion held in once-disputed \Vest New Guinea. Time, first of all, is in its favor. Secondly, the U.N. agreement ilween Indonesia and the Neth- irlands favors the Indonesians. , he Dutch are the first to %dmit it The U.N. accord provides for e transfer of the California-sized 4erntory to the United Nations fjtbout Oct 1. The United Nalions, 'in lurn, will hand adminislralion ?|o Indonesia next May 1. ty The fate of the island's 700,000 ^apuans presumably will be decided in an election to be held s iome time before the end of 1969. f-Of the agreement. Dutch For- ^eign Minister Joseph Luns loid Ills people: "It was not an ideal Ulan, because the administration ras given to Indonesia before the ipuans exercise their right of '"-determination." 'The.original Bunker proposal— led for U.S. diplomat Ells- tudy Begun Of Radiation elt Hazards WASHINGTON CAP) - Three •'ibvernment agencies have ..ipiched a detailed study to de- .fjirmine whether the U.S. Mer- "piry astronaut program must be ^ayed because of a new man• fliade radiation belt around t h e : wrth. ^The belt was created by the ., Jigh-allilude nuclear blast t h e iled States set off in the Cen- il Pacific July 9. [This country's next manned ace adventure is set for lale sptember or early October when idr. Walter M. Schirra Jr. is leduled to orbit the earth six ics. A statement by Ihe Defense Def rlmenl said: 'The data so far available in- f(|cales lhat as a whole the belt • i| decaying by a factor of two in Y 'f period of two to three weeks." r fhis means the strength of radio- fctivity decreases by half in that jjeriod of time. w , "The phenomenon entails no hazard to the earth or its atmosphere." worth Bunker, who led the discussions under U.N. auspices,—called for a two-year transition period. What has disappointed The Hague—and Papuan lenders—was the fad that for several years the Netherlands has pushed dcco- lonialization and self-determination for the Papuans. They received little support in the United Nations. Self-determination has been the rallying cry of the so-called Papuan "intellectual" as well as the Dutch - sponsored New Guinea Council, made up largely of Papuans. Some of these Papuan leaders have said angrily that the adoption of the Bunker plan would mean abandonment by Holland. As for the plebiscite itself, the wording in the U.N. agreement is not too clear. The agreement says a U.N. representative and a staff of experts will advise, assist and "participate in arrangements, which are the responsibility of Indonesia for the act of free choice." This free choice will permit the inhabitants to decide: (A) Whether they wish to remain with Indonesia, or (B) whether they wish to sever their ties with Indonesia. The setting up of an independent Papuan nation presumably would come under choice B. Who will be permitted to vote in the plebiscite? All adults who are not foreign nationals and who are residents at the signing of the present agreement (Aug. 15, 1962), or "at the time of the act of self-determination" in 1969. The agreement permits the freedom of movement in and out of the territory by both Dutch and Indonesian civilians while it is under U.N. administration. It also permits those residents who departed New Guinea after 1945 to return and be eligible for the election. Many see tlu's as an open door in Indonesia's favor. Coach in Which Smallpox Victim I Rode Is Sealed ' DETROIT (AP) - A railroad : coach which had carried a Canadian youth suffering from small|pox was sealed and filled with 1 clouds of cyanide gas by New | York Central officials Monday. | The car, No. 2620, a 66-passen- -• ger coach, was brought here from Toronto because NYC regional of- Uices are here. James W. Orr, IS, was discov- .,ered to have caught smallpox aft- fr travel from New York to Toron' tp in the coach. He was returning i\ with his missionary family from Rule Against | Steel Firms To Be Asked ! WASHINGTON (AP)-Sen. Es- jtes Kefauver, D-Tenn.. said Tuesday he will ask the Senate Antitrust and Monopoy subcommittee this week to vote contempt of Congress citations against four steel companies. Kefauver, the subcommittee's i chairman, said he will call the ! meeting as soon as he can muster five members of his eight-man subcommittee — a quorum — start wheels turning for a court showdown with the four com- panics. He has identified the steel firms as Bethlehem, National, Republic and Armco. He has accused them of refusing to comply with a subpoena, voted 5-3 by the subcommittee, which demanded details of their pricing practices. The companies have argued that disclosure of Ihe information would severely damage them competitively and that the subcommittee was going beyond its authority. Kefauver said eight other companies had agreed—under protest -to comply with the subpoenas jafler its subcommittee promised ! safeguards against any leaks of trade secrets. He said the issue with the other four should be settled by the courts. 1M THANKPW. FOR 1WB» 71 cm BCff terns, DOCTOR?

Care in Nursing Home Said Poor CHICAGO (AP) — The public spotlight touched briefly on one of fast-paced s o c 1 e t y's saddest backwaters this week when Cook County authorities clamped down on a Chicago nursing home chain. In the 17 homes operated by Dr. Leonard Tilkin, a psychiatrist, were 558 county relief patients. Those in 14 of them were bundled out—into other nursing homes. Three of the Tilkin homes continued operating, but under new management Tilkin's troubles with finances and nursing staff resulted in accusations by officials of failure to provide adequate care. Most patients were old persons with assistance allotments, averaging under $200 a month per patient. This is considerably below the level charged for care by most private nursing homes. Nursing homes are seldom measured in official ratings in terms meaningful to the infirm man or woman of 80-plus years who must leave home and family unwillingly for what is often a prison hospital regimen. As the 70s turn into 80s and complications of health deterioration mount, there are few withered humans who remain lovable. Senility takes hold. The facial expressions become crabbed or blank. At this point, the country-club type of nursing home gently eases its client out. Relatives are told that a greater degree of nursing I care and medical supervision are indicated. The mine-run place takes over. Many nursing homes do not have staffs competent to follow courses of care and treatment prescribed by physicians. Some attempt it haphazardly. 'Culture' Swaps With Russians Scored by Meany WASHINGTON fAP)-AFL-CIO President George Meany said today "academic nitwits" who believe the cause of peace can be advanced by cultural exchanges with the Soviet Union should visit the Berlin wall. "That's where you see Soviet culture as it really is." Meany said. "You see it nakedy exposed —the real thing in all its brutal inhumanity." Meany spoke to the convention of the AFL-CIO American Bakery & Confectionery Workers Union. He said that those who think that cultural exchanges with Russia will help settle the cold war are "living in a fool's paradise." State hospitals eventually get many of the unwanted senile dementia victims. But there are private hospitals which specialize in this type of patient. Many do an excellent job. Yet, even in these places, it is depressing to see a deteriorating man or woman, tied to a chair with an elastic band, Gathered against incontinence, gumming, semi-soft food at mealtimes because denture care is virtually impossible for them. The restraint is necessary because, even with unreliable, "swollen or arthritic joints, the patient tends to wander confusedly, and the risk of a fall and a quickly fatal fractured hip is great. The ills of age are inevitable. But they can be eased somewhat or aggravated extremely. How can Ihe family be sure that grandma is as happy as she seemed when her face lit up for her daughter's monthly visit? A physician's answer: "You can't know what befalls an old person in somebody else's establishment. The patient can't report, usually. The administrator always reassures the family.
