Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 2, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Lab Hanky-Panky Charges Probed WASHINGTON (AP) The U.S. Food and Drug Administra- tion is investigating charges that some o[ its officials have manipulated laboratory results for years to avoid weakening or contradicting established gov- er'nment policies on food addi- tives and pesticide safety. The charges, brought by Dr. Howard L. Richardson, chief pathologist in the FDA's bureau of science, contend that middle- level agency officials have ex- punged conclusions and recom- mendations from reports on ani- mal experiments because they cast doubt on FDA policies.

A pathologist employed by the FDA to investigate the charges has found substantial support for Richardson's charge. "There have been modifica- tions of statements and re- said the consultant, Dr. Harold Stewart, retired chief pathologist for the National Cancer Institute. DOUBT FOB DECADES Richardson's allegations, says a congressional expert on the FDA, "cast doubt on the integ- rity of all FDA scientific posi- tions for decades."

Mutineers Seek Asylum WASHINGTON (Keuters) The 120 Haitian coast guard mu- tineers and their three leaky ships which shelled Port au Prince April 24 arrived Friday in Puerto Rico, U.S. state de- partment officials disclosed. The Haitians sought political asylum at the American Guan- tariamo navy base in Cuba Sun- day after shelling the Haitian capital April 24, but were dis- patched to Puerto Rico under U.S. Navy escort. The rebel band, headed by Col. Octave Cayard, will be flown to -Miami, Fla., for cus- toms and immigration process- ing, the officials said. Each man will be interviewed before a decision is made on re- quest for asylum, they added. The shelling of the Haitian capital was an apparent at- tempt to topple the government of President Francois Duvalier. Richardson, who joined the agency in sold the old FDA slides and laboratory work sheets revealed what he termed a suspiciously high incidence of cancer ill the test animals. The cancer findings were not men- tioned in the published report. DIDN'T WHITE ItEPOUT T h e pathologist who con- ducted the original research told Richardson a non-patholo- gist superior had written'the re- port and that he, the patholo- gist, had only signed it. "He stated that he didn't want to fight with Richard- son quoted the pathologist as saying. "This was his policy over the years." Experts believe cyclamates might not have been widely possibly even perniit- the 1951 cancer findings had been known by scientists. Richar'dson blamed what he termed the disgraceful scientific climate in the FDA on separa- tion research experts from top policy officials by a middle- level of bureaucracy. The middle officials are deter- mined to protect their jobs by supporting top level policy deci- sions at all costs, lie said.
