The Southern minoisan If the Mt Vernon State Tu berculosis Sanitarium is clos ed TB patients in Southern Illinois will receive inadequate treatment according nesses at a legislative hearing at the facility Monday Alvin Grant the states TB control officer deniedthe charge saying patients would be adequately cared for on an outpatient basis and in gen eral hospitals near their homes The public hearing attend ed by about 50 employes com munity members and labor representatives ran the gam 1 ut of suggested uses for the 23yearold building The suggestions include maintaining the facility as it is used now with TB patients in one part of the building and mentally retarded pati ents in a separate part turn ing the facility entirely into one for the care of the men tiv retarded or converting the building to a center for toe treatment of lung di seases The Illinois House commit tee that held the hearing is examining plans of the Illi nois Dept of Public Health to close the sanitarium for TB patients effective July 1 The building now has 65 beds for TB patients but only about 18 are filled The committee which leans toward keeping the facility op en in some manner has said Gov Daniel Walker will honor its recommendations due April 30 However a spokes man forWalker denied that today The governor said he would pay the committee the courtesy of not making a de cision until after the report is submitted and that he would take it into consideration the spokesman jsaid Walkerhe said did not say he would abide by the committees rec ommendations The sanitariums acting medical director Dr Morris Zelman spoke out strongly at Mondays hearing in favor of maintaining TB patients at the facility Dr Zelman who has been associated with the sanitarium since it opened in 1951 said Nobody knows about TB in Southern Illinois like I do However he said 33 pa tients were recently discharg ed from the facility by the state without his being con sulted He said that at the time of the states action there were between 45 and 50 pa tients at the sanitarium He charged the state discharged the patients so the census of the hospital would be low I dont think Southern Illi nois hospitals can take care of TB patients Dr Zelman said claiming the state had not trained hospital personnel to deal with TB patients One of the 33 patients dis charged by the state recently had a reversal in his condi tionwas admitted toa general hospital and died Sunday Dr Zelman said The facility has to remain a TB sanitarium he said Southern Illinois is different from northern Illinois The hospitals are smaller and we do not have the specialists He added We should not treat TB strictly along the guidelines from Atlanta Ga where the Center for Disease Control which has recom mended treating TB patients in general hospitals is locat Washington AP The federal government is entitled to restrict public com ments by its employes if they would impair the reputation and efficiency of the government the Supreme Court ruled to Iii a 63 decision the court upheld a portion of the Lloyd LaFollette act providing for dismissal or suspension of federal civil service employes for such cause as will promote the efficiency of the service The provision had been aj tacked as being so broad and vague that it inhibited the ex ercise of free speech rights by federal employes The court found otherwise In passing the fact the court said Congress intended to give federal employes job protection and did not intend to authorize dismissal for constitutionally protected speech But the majority wrote the act proscribes only that public speech which improperly damages and impairs the reputation and efficiency of the employing agency and thus it imposes no greater controls on the behavior of federal employes than are necessary for the pro tection of the government as an employer In another aspect of the decision the court held 54 that a trialtype hearing is un necessary before existing provision for such a hearing after dismissal is suffi cient the court said Justices William H Rehn quist Potter Stewart Lewis Powell Jr Harry A Blackmun Byron R White and Chief Justice WanecEBurg In finding that the Lloyd LaFollette Act does not permissibly encroach on First Amendment rights Justices Thurgood Marshall William 0 Douglasand William J Brennan Jr dissented On the issue ofc the hearings White joined the dissenters The decision was prompted by a suit broughtby Wayne Ken nedy who was fired frpm his job at the Office of Op portunity in Chicago for statements he allegedly made at a union meeting and to thr The council debated Monday 2 hours on Lebanons complaint about an Israeli raid Friday night on six Lebanese villages Israel was retaliating for the attack by three Arab guerrillas the day before on the town of Qiryat Shmonah Foreign Minister Fouad Naffa of Lebanon told the 15 member council Israel would react with indifference and contempt to a condemnation Egyptian Minister Ismail Fahmy accused Israel of endangeringthe fragile Middle East truce by its actions in Lebanon and on the Syrian front i Staff fights for Mt Vernon sanitarium There are mitigating cir cumstances Southern Illinois itself is a mitigating circum stance Grant who represented Dept of Public Health direc tor Dr Joyce Lashof at the hearing said the primary question of maintaining the facility as a sanitarium for TB patients is Where we going to get the TB pa tientsto make it justifiable There were only 70 newly active cases of the disease in 30 Southern Illinois counties last year he said Although he admitted TB training has not been carried out at all hospitals Grant said there would be an adequate number of hospital beds for TB patients by July 1 He denied Dr Zelmans charge of inadequate training saying intensive and multifaceted in service training of hospital personnel and physicians had been undertaken Similarly he said most gen eral hospital laboratories are not adequate to handle work for TB patients now but they can become adequate in a short time He added The TBgerm is no different in Southern Illinois than in northern Illi nois Asked in an interview fol lowing tbe hearing why an hospital training had not been completed before the state de cided to closethe sanitarium Grant said most hospitals would not invest the time in inservice training so Ions as theMtVenon facility stayed open Also testifying at the hear ing was Georgia Gregory head of the employes union at the facility She said about 14000 signatures have been collected on petitions asking the state to keep the facility open Several parents of mentally retarded patients who now live in a separate part of he sanitarium urged that if TB patients are phased out of the building the facility be entirely turned over to use for the mentally retarded But according to a letter read by Rep Max Shurtz R Waltonville committee chair man the state has rejected that plan The letter from Richard Blamton deputy director for developmental disabilities in the Illinois Dept of Mental Health said the state already has an adequate number of facilities for the mentally re tarded Also discussed at the nearly twohour session was a pro posal originally introduced by Dr Zelman to convert the facility to a center for the treatment of lung diseases Several committee mem bers visited such a waiter in Mt Vernon Mo Friday Sen TerryBruce DOlney who sits on the committee and was a member of the visit team said the center is five times as good as what we Illinois have Grant said the Dept of Public Health has no information on tbe center and could not comment on the possibility of converting the sanitarium to such a facility Operational funds Committee votes support for lottery Springfield AP A Senate subcommittee today approved 50 legislation pro viding to get the Illinois lottery operating by late sum mer and sent the bill to the full Senate Appropriations Com mittee The amount approved by
