pro- Rockefeller: Health care needs review NEW YORK, N.Y. (AP) Vice-president Nelson Rockefel lor Thursday called for a na tionwide review of medical care programs, saying the country no longer has enough money to make mistakes. "We learn by our mistakes, Rockefeller told a public hear ng investigating alleged abuses in New York nursing homes We used to have enough mon ey to afford it, but now we don't." Rockefeller did not detail how he would undertake a nationwide review of health grams. Denies Link to Bergman During day-long grilling under glaring television lights, the vice-president also swore that to the best of his recollection he never met Bernard Bergman, a nursing home multimillionaire under indictment on charges ol bilking the government out ol more than $1 million in false Medicaid claims. Rockefeller was asked to testify to answer charges that his top assistants during his years as governor of New York interceded to get favorable treatment from the state for Bergman. Rockefeller's aides called it an unprecedented move for an American vice-president to appear at a hearing investigating criminal matters. Limited Testimony Commission Chairman Morris Abrams stressed that Rockefeller was to answer questions only about matters that took place during the 15 years he was governor of New York, and he pointedly called him "Governor" throughout the day. One of those implicated in previous testimony was longtime Rockefeller chief of staff T. Norman Kurd. The vice-president said, "I have never known a finer, more dedicated public servant with higher principles and greater integrity than T. Norman Kurd." He did not deny statements by Abrams that state auditing procedures had been faulty in the nursing home field during his years as governor. Nor did he deny that he had failed to appoint an "ombudsman" to check on possible abuses although the federal government would have paid the bill. "No Iron Fist" "There was no iron fist behind the velvet glove," Abrams commented when Rockefeller described his policy of policing nursing homes by agreement. Rockefeller admitted that he "had known since 1965 that there were abuses in New York nursing homes, but he insisted that, to him, "abuse is somebody who is physically abused." He said he does not relate the word to conditions for care or treatment. Slayton improves after surgery HOUSTON, TEX. (AP) - Astronaut Donald Slayton, recovering from lung surgery, is continuing to show "signs of improvement" and is in "good spirits," officials said Thursday. Slayton, 51, the nation's oldest active astronaut, underwent exploratory surgery Tuesday for removal and examination of a nodule on his left lung. Surgeons found that the nodule, about the size of pencil eraser, was benign. Doctors said Slayton probably will remain in the hospital for another eight to 10 days and should be recovered sufficiently to go on a tour of the Soviet Union Sept. 22.

DeWitt Clinton Smith of Chi:ago, 111., contends in his suil that he struck his head am neck on an "object or objects" at Clearwater, a former grave] pit near West Des Doines, causing "a fracture of his spinal cord. Suit Contends He contends the privately owned beach is operated as a public swimming area and consequently should be safe for swimming. He also contends that payment of admission fees constitutes a contract with an implied warranty the premises are safe. The suit was brought againsl Jim Dandy Recreation, Inc. now known as Clearwater •ark, Inc., and against Jamei McConkey, manager of the park. Smith charges Clearwater personnel with failure to inspect he designated public swimming area, with failure to warn 'of the deceptive, irregular and hidden nature of the body of water as well as of the depth of he body of water" and of failure to provide first aid facil- ties and persons competent to render such treatment. 'Abnormal Risk" Smith, who says he suffered i fractured neck on July 26, 974, alleges the bottom of the ormer gravel pit creates "an abnormal risk of harm" to persons swimming there. He seeks $875,000 in damages or injuries suffered and for costs incurred while undergoing medical care. McConkey could not be •cached for comment Thursday. Picket Pentagon WASHINGTON, D.C.

ISU scientist tells of answers to food supply CHICAGO, ILL (AP) - The ultimate answers to the world food supply problem lie in improved economic and social opportunities for women and social security for the aged, says an Iowa scientist. He told the American Chemical Society's national meeting, now in session, that these attainments are necessary to reduce the birth rate, which will decrease food demand. The scientist, Dr. Earl 0. Heady, director of the Center for Agricultural and Rural Development at Iowa State University, Ames, la., and a colleague, Shyamal Roy Chowdhury, said in a prepared paper that the world has only 40 years to make the necessary adjustments to guarantee adequate food supplies. Politicians and officials in developing countries must create policies to increase per capita incomes and the "worth of women's time," Heady said. "Evidence world-over clearly indicates that when per capita income, education, employ- on e n t, economic opportunity and possibilities of social participation and expression became high enough and are sufficiently and widely distributed to women, family size takes a drastic decline, 1 ' he pointed out. "Larger families are simply too costly in what must otherwise be given up by women as full social and economic participants under these conditions," Heady added. "If per capita incomes rose enough in India and similar countries, billions of people would keep grain so high priced in developed countries that much less of it would be fed to livestock at a low transformation rate into human energy — and would cause it to be spread more evenly among the world's consumers," he said. Evidence from every part of the developed world indicates that social and economic factors, and not biological and physical factors relating to birth control, are the final determinants of fertility rates and family size, he said.

WASHINGTON CANNIN Available 14^ Ljjg*§pecial! Ask Your Grocer POLYVINYL CHLORIDE BAN PLANNED WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) The Food and Drug Administration said Thursday it intends to outlaw polyvinyl chloride, the second most common production plastic, from use in bottles, boxes and other rigid con tainers for food. The proposed ban is based on fears that the products may cause cancer, the FDA said The industry immediately de nied that contention, saying through a Washington spokes man that "the actual possibility . is nil." The Society of the Plastics Industry, Inc., also said it will ask the FDA for a ful hearing on its proposed rules governing polyvinyl chloride food packaging materials, Multiple Uses The targeted packages are used for a host of food prod ucts, including vegetable oils, processed meats, vinegar, honey and liquid vitamins. Polyvinyl chloride, or PVC, is a solid derivative of vinyl chloride gas. The gaseous form is widely acknowledged as a cancer agent, and its use is already under strict government regulation. FDA Evidence Cited The FDA cited "evidence that residues of vinyl chloride may migrate into food from the semi-rigid, rigid and generally heavier VC plastics," the most widespread of which is PVC. But Ralph L. Harding, jr., o! New York City, president of the Society of the Plastics Industry Inc., said through a spokesman that the federal agency "has acted with undue panic in regard to that possibility." The industry produces an overall total of about 5.4 billion pounds of PVC per year. Of that amount, an estimated one per cent goes into the food packaging products which the FDA wants to ban. Nader Group The FDA earlier was peti- :ioned by the Health Research Group, a Ralph Nader organization, to ban virtually all poly vinyl products which come into contact with food. The agency stopped far short of that step, however. The proposed regulation would still al low thin and pliable forms o PVC, such as film-type wrap for meat and vegetables, gas kets, cap liners, tubing am package coatings to be usec without restriction. But differences in the manu- F a c t u r i n g process for such items as bottles, blister packs, boxes and other rigid packing do pose a threat, the FDA said. 60-Day Prohibition Those containers would be )rohibited for food products af- ;er 60 days, presuming the pro posal is not revised after hear- ngs requested by the industry. Harding said the action Thursday is "incomprehensible . in light of the data the industry has submitted, which we believe will uphold our con- ention that there is no prac- ical possibility of vinyl chloride migration." The industry research shows, said Harding, that PVC used in bottles contains less than one part per million of the ques- ioned residue, "which means hat the actual possibility of migration is nil."

(AP) — City officials in this ocean-front resort city have re- ccted proposals for air and water patrols to warn swimmers of sharks. A city commission committee concluded Wednesday that shark lookouts in airplanes and boats would not have prevented ecent attacks and probably vould increase the fears of already skittish swimmers. Five persons, including four n Volusia County, have been attacked by sharks this summer. In the worst and most ecent attack, doctors were orc'ed to ampule the leg of a /oung Wisconsin man who was jitten earlier this month while wimming 20 feet from shore. lye sabotage in rain derailment PANAMA, CITY, FLA.

Iowa GOP still $50,000 in debt By JAMES FLANSBURG Despite a presidential fundraising visit that netted more than $70,000, the Iowa Republican Party is still more than $50,000 in debt, the party's chairman-elect said Thursday. Tom Stoner, who will take over as chairman next month, told a Dubuque GOP gathering that financial solvency has to remain the party's first priority. Preliminary figures showed that a reception and dinner for President Ford in Des Moines last week grossed $92,200, with almost $19,000 of that going to pay the costs of Mr. Ford's trip and other expenses, Cut Debt ; "The Presidential reception cut the debt in half, but we must pay off the balance of the debt and build a solid financial base to carry out our programs and support our candidates in the coming elections," Stoner told the party function in Dubuque. GOP fund-raiser Richard Redman said that the state party owed bank notes of $70,000, but 'that the party owed substantially more than that. "That didn't include current bills and other things," Redman said. He said that it's still too early to get final figures, but that projections indicate that the Ford visit will permit the party to clear all accounts and cut the bank debt to between $55,000 and $60,000. Fund-Raisers Party plans call for a series of regional fund-raisers over the state the next two months and for the debt to be paid by the end of the year, he said. In his Dubuque appearance, Stoner emphasized the finances. "It is already clear that if we are to succeed as a party and secure'" victories in 1976, we must ensure that the party is financially solvent in 1975," he said. "The greatest tragedy for Republicans in 197.6 would be to have winning programs and qualified candidates and then be unable to support them financially." Exon's Ylit commHtM LINCOLN, NEB. (AP) Gov. J. J. Exon'S office said Thursday that the governor was forming a committee to aid Vietnamese refugees.
