I bet my uncle that the Detroit River is more polluted now than it was five years ago. Am I right? L. W., Southgate. Good news -you lose. State Department of Natural Resources tests water monthly from March to November in 60 locations along the river. This year's tests show water's improved nnce 196(5 tests. DNR said improved industrial equipment and better sewage treatment has helped clean up chlorides, phosphates and ammonia. Since 1966 chloride content has dropped from 51 to 35 milligrams per liicr of water, ammonia nitrogen from .7:1 to I!i8 mpl, and phosphates from .59 to .14 mpl. Most visible improvement is drop in amount of suspended solids water quality engineers' talk for dirt.

Action Q Line On Friday evening, July 14, I went to meet a friend for dinner at the London Chop House. 1 arrived before he did, so I asked to be seated at the bar to wail. The hostess told me unescorted women couldn't sit at the bar. I think this is a case of gross sex discrimination. D. M., Ann Arbor. So does the state of Michigan. Public Act 116, signed into law by Governor Milliken on April 18, makes it a misdemeanor to withhold privileges in places of public accommodation solely on the basis of sex. Michigan Civil Rights Commission said law hasn't been tested in court yet. CRC would like to start with you, will be in touch soon about taking your case to court. Chop management said policy of refusing to seat unescorted women at the bar is "for women's own protection." If found guilty, penalty for that, kind of protection is not less than $I(J() or i.) days in jail, or both. Detroiters who think their civil rights have been violated under the new law can file a complaint with the police. Police will call both parties in for a hearing the next day to decide whether case should go to the prosecutor.

No one has yet been held to answer for the deaths of the three blacks in a case that has come to symbolie, in many people's minds, the riot, police action, the administration of justice itself. Never has there been zeal to bring accused policemen to trial. ONE SUSPENDED Detroit policemen still awaits a possible first-degree murder trial in Recorder's Court. The case against that officer, Robert Paille, is one of the oldest in the court's history. Since 1067, another policeman Ronald Augu-4 has been cleared of a first degree murder charge. A state conspiracy charge Paille, suspended policeman David Senak and a private guard lias been thrown out of court. Also, a jury bus found all three policemen and the guard inno-ccnt of federal conspiracy charges. At the heart of the case subject of national attention and a book by prize-winning author Juhn Horsey is a question asked by Ramsey Clark, who, as U.S. attorney general, authorized the federal conspiracy indictment in the Algiers killings. His question: "Who will protect the public when the police violate the law?" The killings in the rundown motel annex since demolished came during the dark hours of Tuesday and Wednesday, July 25-26, 1967. The dead were three voting blacks AP Photo. 'iff Carl Cooper, 17; 1 red Temple, 18. and Auburey Pollard, 19. NO ONE has ever established that any of the three had done anything wrong. VI) Victims Leil Untreated To Die in U.S. Experiment WASIIINtiTON (AP) During a 40-year federal experiment, a number of syphilis victims were denied proper medical treatment for their disease. Some died as a result, but survivors are now getting whatever aid is possible, the U.S. Public Health Service says. 'The experiment, conducted by the health service, was designed to uetermine through autopsies what damage untreated syphilis does to the human body. Of about 600 Alabama black men who originally took part in the study, 2011 or so were allowed to suffer the disease and its side effects without treatment, even after penicillin was discovered as a cure for syphilis. Treatment could probably have saved or helped many of them, health officials admit. They contend that survivors of the experiment are now loo old to treat for syphilis, but that government doctors arc giving them thorough physicals every two years and are treating them for whatever other ailments and diseases they have developed. MEMBERS of Congress reacted with shock Tuesday to disclosure of the experimentation on human guinea pigs. Sen. William Proxmire, D-Wis., a member of the Senate appropriations subcommittee which oversees health-service budgets, called the study " a moral and ethical nightmare." "It's incredible to me that such a thing could have happened," he said. "Congress should give careful consideration lo compensating the families of these men." Sen. Edward M.

THE syphilis experiment, called t h e Tuskegee Study, began in 19;!2 in Tuskegee, Eagleton Able lo Normally, Doctors Believe BY PHILIP MEYER Free Press Washington Staff MIAMI The fact that Sen. Thomas Eagleton was treated with electroshock therapy indicates that he suffered from moderate to severe depression. But leading medical experts said Tuesday that it should cast no doubt on his ability to serve as vice-president. "None whatever," said Dr. Karl Menninger, 79, who is senior member of the Menninger Clinic of Topeka, Kan. "Abraham Lincoln had a very severe depression before he was president, many other presidents probably have if they didn't they ought to have had." Menninger, reached in Chautauqua, N.Y., where he is on vacation, praised Eagleton for making his medical history public. "It may even show that he is a rather superior individual." he said. "He is frank about it. AP Phoij IV rt' i icc press con I hen, in the heat of not, reaction escalated into "army under heavy fire." The police moved in, expecting a fight. Cooper died first, hit by the kind of buckshot used in Detroit police shotguns. He apparently was killed as police made their initial assault on the building, where they believed snipers were hiding. Temple was killed moments later, also by police-type buckshot. Then Pollard was shot by August, in the grisly end of what w as called a death game to frighten other occupants of the motel into revealing weaponswhich by that time were Please turn to Page 4A, Col.

BOYD AND CLARK HOYT Free Press Washington SUtf Copyright 172 by Knight Newspapei s SYLVAN L. A K E. S.D. -Sen. Thomas Eagluton acknowledged Tuesday that he has twice undergone electro-shock therapy for psychiatric problems and had offered pn vately over the weekend to withdraw as George Ml Govern's vice-presidential run ning mate. The revelations came a-, a resalt of a week-long inquirv by Knjght Newspapers into the 42-year-old Missouri senator';, previously unknown medical history. In on exclusive Interview with Knight reporters Tuesday, Eagleton said McGovern refused his offer to withdraw. "He flatly said it wasn't in his mind," Eagleton said after disclosing that; he had been hospitalized three times between 1960 and 1966 for "nervous exhaustion" and "depression." AT A N L; W S conference after a two-hour merlin with Eagleton in McGovern's log cabin retreat here, t h e Democratic presidential nominee declared: "I think Turn Eagleton is fully qualified to be vice-president of the United States and if necessary tt take over the presidency on . moment's notice." A tense, pale Eagleton, Ins head and hands trembling, told the press conference: "I am satisfied that my health is sound and I've learned the lessons of the past." Later, appearing relaxed and at ease as he was being driven to the Rapid City air port for a chartered flight to California, Eagleton tuld Knight Newspapers he was immensely relieved to be unburdened of his longtime secret. "I've been living with it, lot 12 years . . . it's been a millstone around my neck," lie said, puffing on a cigaret and peering out at the lush green hills. "I always knew it was going to come out someday." BUT TO KEEP the mat-er hidden as long as possible, Eagleton conceded, his staif deliberately misled Missouri newsmen in 1966 by hiniing that he was'being treated for a gastric disturbance at Johns Hopkins University Hospital in Baltimore when in fact he wa? receiving shock therapy at the Mayo Clinic i n Rochester, Minn. "I never was at Johns Hopkins," he said. "It was a piny ... a mild attempt to be diversionary."

"One of the problems is thai there are probably people w ho are dangerous and who would not seek help and would not have that label on them. "So it is quite erroneous b hold that someone without th label and without the history is necessarily better off."
