REPUBLIC REPUBLIC BULLDOG MAIL \ 42 Th« Arizona Republic Phoenix, Thurs., Jme 18,1970 Arizona exports $20 million yearly in goods, services to coffee countries Patients to get some say in hospital inspections By HAROLD K. MILKS Republic Latin Affairs Editor Here is something to think about over your next cup of coffee. The World Coffee Information Center has fed some statistics into its computers and learned that< Arizona exports b e- tween $20 and $25 million annually to coffee producing countries. THe center, which promotes coffee sales in the U.S. recently released a report called "Coffee Economic Impact," It says this export trade stimulated 1,991 jobs in Arizona with annual wages and * agricultural incomes of more than $14,131,000. Specifically mentioned in the report were exports of agricultural chemicals from Glendale, feldspar .from Kingman, computers, fabricated aluminum products, food products and machinery from Phoenix, and barley, cereal grains, cotton, cottonseed, and cottonseed oil from the state in general, Mexico is moving up fast among leading contenders for the tourist dollar. Norman William Contreras, director in Phoenix for the Mexican Government Tourist Department, said 2,061,436 foreign tourists visited Mexico in 1969, not including those attracted only to the border towns. To further boost the tourist industry the Mexican government has authorized its 13 government tourism offices in the U.S. to issue tourist cards to citizens of all nationalities except those specifically requiring authorization from the Minister of the Interior in Mexico City. Formerly only U.S. citizens were documented at the tourist offices, including the Phoenix office at 3443W. Central Ave. ',. * * * The Center for Latin America^ Studies at Arizona State University has come up with another publication of value to buffs on that area, a paperback on Latin American government leaders. Containing 350 biographical sunjmaries of leading figures in government, the $2 publication was edited by the center director, Dr. Marvin Alisky, with Lawrence E. Koslow, Earl Carver, and Lewis A. Tambs of ASU, and contributors from Wisconsin State University, the University of Wyoming, and California State College. The center's latest publication is far from complete — in fact it is disappointing on some areas — but it should furnish a valuable handbook to those seeking to follow political developments in Latin America. One tip to the editors —time" leave some blank pages after every country division to permit updating the lists to cover the frequent scene changes among Latin governments due both to military takeovers and the current series of national elections down there. The stock market tailspin in the United States contained a silver lining for worried government financiers in Latin America. It eased considerably their problem of controlling the flight of local capital to the U.S. via mutual funds and similar investments. Net foreign investments in U.S. stocks rose from $300 million in 1966 to $2.3 billion in 1968. Since then the total has been cut substantially by the withdrawal of disenchanted Latin investors as well as curbs by many countries on the free flow of money abroad. More and more Latin American stock buyers are moving into national mutual funds. A healthy change from the viewpoint of the developing countries, this keeps the money at home where it can be put to work. SHOP AT THE BIGGEST-LITTLE STORE IN TOWN for unusual Wall Decor.

SALE Washington Post Service WASHINGTON - The Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Hospitals will take the first step today to give patients some say in its inspections of the nation's hospitals. Representatives of national consumer groups will meet in Chicago with the commission to set up a permanent advisory board made up of people who use hospital services — a revolutionary idea for the 51-year-old organization that previously had considered that its only obligation was to hospitals and the medical profession. The commission scheduled the meeting after poverty groups demanded some say in hospital inspections — especially since accreditation is one criterion for hospitals receiving Medicare funds. "The problem is that we really are providing a service to hospitals and the medical profession, who are our consumers," Dr. John D. Porterfield, the commission's director, said. "Patients don't consume our products; the hospitals do." The commission — formed by the American College of Physicians, the American College of Surgeons, the American Medical Associa- tion and the American Hospital Association — inspects hospitals at their request only. Its seal of approval signifies that the hospital meets minimum standards and is considered necessary for medical schools to run training programs there. It also tells young doctors who take part in hospital intern and residency programs that they will receive good training there. Traditionally, the accreditation procedures have been cozy affairs between the commission and the hospital. The inspection results are rarely made public, outside groups are not invited to appear before the inspection teams and the hospital is notified in advance of the inspection. Now, tinder pressure from consumer groups—especially the National Welfare Rights Organization and Los Angeles' National Legal Program on Health Needs of the Poor—traditional procedures are changing. Last month, for the first time In its history, commission inspectors heard complaints of consumer groups and young doctors during their visit to District of Columbia General Hospital here. ' In a series of 24 "de- mands" presented to the commission in April, the National Welfare Rights Organization asked that inspection visits be unannounced; patients and staff members should be questioned as part of the inspection; and results should be made public. In this way, the poverty groups hope to improve medical care that the hospitals give to the poor. Porterfield agreed that some of the welfare organization's proposals are "very sound," but said the poverty groups can't expect the commission to solve all the nation's health care problems.
