Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - June 4, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Tho Cedar Rapids Gazette: Tues., .lune 4. 1974 HEW Tightens Loans For Medical Students WASHINGTON (AP) - The department of Health. Education and Welfare says it is instituting tighter controls to prevent “unwise use” of federal aid to medical and dental students. HEW responded Monday to General Accounting Office report disclosing that students applying for loans were allowed to list among their needs such things as an abortion for a girl friend and fodder for a spouse's horse. The GAO also contended that nearly $300 million in federal loans and grants under the Health Professions Student Assistance Program has not significantly increased the supply of doctors and dentists. Success Disputed “Although the number of students accepted by medical and dental schools has increased and the quality has improved since HPSAP began, it does not appear to have been a significant factor in these increases,” t h e congressional watchdog agency said. In comments appended to the report, HEW disagreed with the conclusion that the aid program hadn't achieved its objectives. However, the department said it “accepts as valid the criticism for relying too heavily on the schools of medicine and den tistry to administer the student assistance program.” The GAO study investigated administration of the program over a nine-year period ending in 1973, when it was reorganizec with more emphasis on regional control. Gifts, Insurance According to the report, student at the Havlor College of Medicine in Houston. Texas, was allowed a $1,000 health profession loan to pay for his girl friend’s abortion.” A footnote added: “After he discussed this loan with school officials, it was canceled. The school awarded the student a replacement loan from a private source.” At an Illinois dental school, the GAO report said, “Some students’ budgets included items such as contributions of up to $250 to community organizations, life insurance of up to $369, $1,000 to repay a loan from parents and $600 for feeding a spouse’s horse.” Group Seeks To Bar Rebuilding of Blast-Torn Plant FLIXBOROUGH, KURI and (AP) — The villagers of Fiix-borough have formed a commit tee to oppose reconstruction of the giant chemical plant that exploded last Saturday, killing 29 people and injuring 105. The flames from the explosion finally died out Monday and officials in London ordered a full public inquiry into the blast. “We knew something like this was bound to happen one day,” said Hugh Scullion, a chemist at the factory and a leader of the citizens’ committee. Geoffrey Walden, one of many who were made homeless by the blast, said: “We fought for four years to stop them building this plant. They paid no heed to our fears.” Firm To Let U. S. Destroy 1.5 Million Cans of Soup NEWARK (AIM - The Bon Vivant Soup Co. has agreed to government destruction of 1.5 million cans of soup recalled three years ago after a New York man died from botulism in a can of the company's vichyssoise. Bon Vivant said Monday it was giving up its efforts to reclaim the soup because legal expenses were too high — an estimated $100,01)0 according to one source. In addition, the firm said the soup, worth an average 50 cents a can, would be too old to sell even if it won the legal fight. Crush, Bury Most of the soup will be taken to a dump, crushed by an earth moving machine and buried and the Bon Vivant factory in July 1971 after Samuel Cochran of Bedford, N. Y., ate some Bon Vivant vichyssoise and died. Mrs, Cochran was paralyzed briefly. The government immediately recalled all Bon Vivant products. The company claimed that all but one batch of vichyssoise was manufactured properly and asked that the recalled soup be returned to Bon Vivant for sale. Rut William Martin, mayor of Graduates Magistrate Court the nearby town of Scunthorpe, said his town council would press for rebuilding to go ahead. ‘The factory is an important source of jobs and it is important to the national economy,” he said. The Nypro Ltd. plant, in Lincolnshire 150 miles north of London, is owned jointly by the British and Dutch coal mining industries. It made caprolac-tum, used to strengthen nylon for heavy industrial use, and was the only factory of its kind in Britain. One investigator said he believed a highly inflammable vapor escaped, and a chance spark ignited it. All the fatalities were employes of the plant, but the blast under dirt and garbage. “I hope when they do it they won’t take pictures and put them in the paper next to starv ing children — people won’t understand.” said Maria Paretti, vice-president of Bon Vivant, who has claimed that there is nothing wrong with the soup. The soup was recalled from thousands of grocery shelves John W. Creen of 2022 Mansfield avenue SE was graduated May 18 from Benedictine college in Atchison.

Conditions Set For Rail Hike FARLEY—The Western Dubuque Community school board voted Monday night to reimburse parents of nonpublic school children for loss of auxiliary services. Petitions bearing about 3.100 WASHINGTON (AP) - The Interstate Commerce Commission told the railroads Tuesday that they could not increase their freight rates IO percent unless they agreed to use the new money to rebuild track and upgrade equipment. The ICC turned down a IO percent hike that was scheduled to go into effect Wednesday. It told the railroads they could refile the increase to be effective in 15 days if they would agree to use any revenues generated by it for capital improvements and deferred maintenance of plant and equipment. It also said the revenue could be used for increased material and supply costs other than fuel. Disagrees with Decision, Woman Resigns Office DUBUQUE (UPI)—The chair-man of the,Dubuque county social services board said Monday she has resigned because she disagrees with a decision that a 17-year-old girl was disciplined and not abused at a private center here. Alice Bulkley, 69, said she disagreed with conclusions made by the state social services department and the county agency that the treatment of the girl constituted physical discipline rather than physical abuse. In a report released last month, the girl claimed her mouth was washed out with dishwashing liquid, and that she was slapped several times while a resident of Cannon II, a treatment center for emotionally disturbed children. Other members of the board have indicated they may also resign.
