The number is sufficient to require a 300-bed hospital and 350 doctors, but fears of being reported and then deported cause most to avoid doctors when taken ill. Some die when they could have been cured and others spread contagious diseases through the rest of the population. Riverside county, for example, has recurrent outbreaks of tuberculosis that officials attribute largely to farmworkers who are in the country unlawfully- "The problem does exist here, and I think we are ignoring the problem at this point,” says Gerald Shirley, program director of the county lung association. "If health care services were available for the alien, and he wasn’t going to be deported. he would seek them out.” Little attention has been given to the problem, according to a survey by the Riverside Press-Enterprise.

Hie assertion, bas^d on evidence supplied by I he senate Watergate commute?, is contained in a letter which impeachment probers , sent to the White House April I* I to back up their requests for 45 tape recordings and otfsur material bearing on the mifk-fund affair. The letter sard that former White Houstf aide Murray Chotiner told sn me dairy cooperatives leaders that President Nixon's ichief domestic adviser at t’fle time. John Ehrlichman, es pected them to reaffirm their promise of campaign money “in light of a forthcoming increase in milk price supports.” "The dairy leaders did so,” the letter said. The next day, March 25, 1971, the agriculture department announced a price increase which President INixon had ordered personally ftwo days earlier, after a face-'io-face meeting with a number: of dairymen. The Wt.ite House denies that promises; of campaign money were a factor in Nixon’s decision to raise prices. It acknowledges ti? at Nixon knew up to $2 million.’had been promised, and said Vt at "traditional political consideration,” including pressure lf rom congress, influenced tho pj ice increase decision. TJie pledges of campaign min ley came from top officials of Associated Milk Producers, Inc., on behalf of the nation’s three largest dairy Cooperatives, which represent ft trillers who produce about I ne-quarter of the U.S. milk supply. The letter from the judiciary ^committee was made public Friday through the office of Rep. Jerome Waldie (D-Calif.), a member of the committee. It came on the heels of a statement, attributed to a former lobbyist for Associated Milk Producers saying top officials of the cooperative told him that the $2 million commitment had been made “in conjunction with the 1971 price support” decision. According to the letter, Ehrlichman contacted White House special counsel Charles Colson immediately after President Nixon ordered the price in crease on March 23. 1971. Col son had been the principal con tact in the White House for leaders of the milk producers. The house letter said Colson then called Chotiner, who had left the White House to enter private law practice. At the time, Chotiner was receiving a $50,000-a-year retainer paid by the milk producers. Officials of the milk producers and other cooperatives met with Nixon on March 23, and then "engaged in all-night meetings ... at which they agreed to make political contributions to the President’s re - election campaign and to contribute $25,000 by the evening of March 24, 1971,” the house letter said. On the night of March 24, Chotiner and a large number of dairy cooperative officials attended a Republican fund raising dinner in Washington. Sometime that night, the house letter said, “Mr. Chotiner stated to several dairymen that Mr. Ehrlichman expected the dairy industry to reaffirm its $2-mi!lion ‘commitment’ in ight of a forthcoming increase "in milk price supports. The dairy leaders did so.” Chotiner died Jan. 30. His [Former I a w partner, Marion Harrison, declined comment. jjThe letter said the judiciary committee is seeking tapes of conversations the President had with Colson, Ehrlichman, Chotiner and former Treasury Secretary John Connally around the time of the price increase. The White House has said Connally argued strongly in favor of a price increase. There have been allegations, denied consistently by Connally, that he received a $10,000 or $15,000 payment from the milk producers in return for his help with the price increase and possibly other matters. A former associate of Connally, Texas lawyer Jake Jacobsen. was indicted for perjury and accused of lying in testimony absolving Connally. Friday, U S. Dist. Court Judge George Hart, jr., dismissed the perjury indictment on technical grounds. A spokesman for the Watergate special prosecution force declined to say whether a new indictment would be sought, but legal observers believed it likely Jacobsen will be re-indicted. Soviets Postpone Scientist Event MOSCOW (AP)-The Soviet government has suddenly withdrawn invitations to hundreds of Western scientists for the 250th anniversary celebration of the National Academy of Sciences. Foreign diplomats said Thursday the celebrations had been postponed, apparently to head off embarrassing discussions on intellectual freedom and Jewish emigration. They said the Russians noticed them the event—scheduled for May 14—had been put off indefinitely due to the national campaign for the June 16 elec- UN1TED NATIONS (AP) -Dr. Jamshid Amouzcgar made some multi-billion-dollar oil decisions recently, but he wasn’t born to the big money. Thirty years ago he mopped restaurant floors and washed dishes while an engineering student at Cornell university, Ithaca, N. Y., Amouzcgar, finance minister of Iran, recalled. "I would work four hours a night, starting at 5 p.m. It was a good experience. It helped me remember the life of the ordinary worker ... I owe much of what I have to the liberal education I got at Cornell and later at the University of Washington in Seattle,” Amouzcgar added. Now a wiry man of 50, he has been president of the last five sessions of OPEC, the 13-nation Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries. This is the cartel that recently tripled crude oil prices, raising the world’s annual oil bill at least $60 billion. Prime Mover Amouzegar was a prime mover in the increase, which upped Iran's oil revenues about $12 billion a year. Asked to defend the price boost, his favorite theme is that cheap oil had encouraged "inexcusable, reckless waste” of a limited resource, and overaffluence and over-consumption in rich countries such as t h e U. S. Does he predict an end now to t h e comfortable, consumer-oriented life made possible by cheap energy in these countries? “First of all,” he said in an interview, "I think bridging the gap between rich and poor countries is a myth. There are simply not enough resources to go around for everyone to have the same rate of consumption as in the U. S. “Both sides should sacrifice a little, the industrial countries too. I am not saying they should lower their standard of living. You can have your good standard of living with conservation. I’m not saying you have to freeze. But if you are comfortable in your house at 70 degrees, why heat it to 75? "Why Not?” "If it weren’t for cheap oil, you wouldn’t have sealed-off air-conditioned buildings as in New York or Washington. Why not open the windows and enjoy the spring and fall weather? "I’m not saying you have to ride around on camels. Drive your car, but slow down ... I’m sure the standard of living in the U. S. in January, 1974. after conservation began, was not lower than in 1973 ” Low oil prices, Amouzegar stimulate efficient usage and development of other forms of energy. In Iran, he said, it was necessary to raise the price of water to get people to stop wasting it. "We are a semi arid country, so we told the public, if you want water for swimming pools, you’ve got to pay for it.” The minister emphasized he was not born into Iran’s privileged elite. Describing his origins as "lower middle class,” he said his father was a teacher and judge. Picked Up Hides "We couldn’t afford a car or refrigerator. My father and mother sacrificed for me.” In 1944, during the war, they sent him to Bombay enroute to school. He said he reached the U. S. by picking up rides on cargo and prisoner of war ships via Australia, the Panama Canal and Boston. “I had to work to pay my expenses at Cornell,” Amouzegar recalled. "I got a scholarship only after a professor noticed me working in the restaurant and looked up my grades. There were no government contacts or anything like that. "This is the sort of thing this country provides for its youth, with your best recommendation your ability. I was a foreigner and they helped me. I have never forgotten it.” Trial of Four Indians Recessed to May 14 SIOUX FALLS, S. D. (AP) -Circuit Judge Joseph Bottum, apparently intending to give this tense town an opportunity to cool off, Friday recessed the trial of four Indians until May 14.
