NEW YORK (AP) - The deposed
Shah of Iran, said to be suffering from
cancer and a blocked bile duct, began a
series of extensive tests in one of the
world's top hospitals yesterday after
U.S. officials gave him special per-

Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, who
will be 60 on Friday, was described as
appearing weak and moving with a
slow, shuffling gait when he arrived at
LaGuardia AirportMonday night after
a flight from his place of exile in Cuer-
Traveling with him were his wife, a
retinue of personal bodyguards, and
two Doberman pinscher guard dogs.
RESPONDING TO an unofficial
description of the shah as gravely ill, a
spokesman at New York Hospital-
Cornell Medical Center-said, "there is
no truth to it at all."
However, a State Department source
in Washington who asked not to be iden-

had been diagnosed as cancer and a
blocked bile duct.
A source close to the shah, who also
asked not to be identified, said the
deposed ruler's condition had worsened
about two weeks ago.
"The shah and members of his family
are optimistic that the outstanding
medical care available in the United
States will diagnose his ailment and
provide a cure," read a statement from
the shah's senior adviser, Robert Ar-
IN WASHINGTON, State Depar-
tment spokesman Hodding Carter said
the shah's request for a visitor visa 'to
this country was sudden. He added tlat
the Iranian government had been 'in-
formed of his trip here.
There is no extradition treaty bet-
ween this country and Iran, so thece
seerhed little chance of his being seized
and returned there.
State Department spokesman David
Passage said the shah was granted
permission to visit the United States for
medical reasons only.
Eamon Brennan, a hospital vide
president, said tests of the shah wee

PBB damage suit was the first in the

Tacoma had been seeking at least $1
million in damages but his claim was
rejected by a Wexford County Circuit

or forced slaughter of millions of farm
animals and raised still unanswered

no serious related health problems.
The settlements were the latest in-
volving Velsicol, formerly Michigan
Chemical Co., which produced the toxic
fire retardant, and Farm Bureau Ser-
vices, which mixed the animal feed.
Previously, the firms and their in-
surers had settled 700 .PBB-related
property claims for $40 million.
SIXTY-NINE pr'perty- suits remain
nsettled ' in*.What has ,been, called
Michigan's worst agricultural disaster.
Some of those suits also involve per-
sonal injury claims.
Negotiations leading to yesterday's
settlement began after a judgment was
issued a year ago in Tacoma's suit, the
trial of which began in February, 1977.
Tacoma, who contended his dairy
herd, was destroyed by PBB, will
receive several thousand dollars under
the out-of-court settlement.
