Granted, we've had more than our share of hospital problems
locally, but get this: The California State Board of Medical Quality
Assurance has revoked the license of an anesthesiologist who officials
said urinated into a coffee cup and injected the fluid into two patients
in separate operations. Dr. William Novick of San Diego Community
Hospital injected the urine into a woman who had a hysterectomy July
26, and a man who had a foot operation the next day. First public word
othe revocation, which occurred Sept. 14, came from the Sacramento
Union in yesterday's editions. Although neiher patient suffered com-
plications due to the injections, the board found Novick was "incom-
petent" and "grossly immoral". It also held he "committed acts in-
volving moral turpitude." Simply put, the doc's a quack.
No sympathy from us dept.
George Eaton of Hamnilton, Ohio has a problem: a jury has ruled the
farmer must accept $24,750 from a utility company for an easement
across his land, but Eaton says he doesn't want it. "Money is the root
of all evil," he told a county pleas judge. "It comes between neighbors
V and relatives. I think you can live without it." Eaton said he didn't
mind granting Cincinnati Gas and Electric Co. a 7.4-acre easement for
power lines, he just didn't want the bucks. Ohio law, however, requires
. a jury to set a fair price for easements if the owner cannot come to an
agreement on a price with a utility. Although Eaton declined the
money, his wife told the judge she would accept it. We're with her.
On the outside.. .
Another lovely one. The high tod y will be a sultry 650-warm
enough to make up for the evening's ;8 low. There will be increasing
clouds during the day, but you can ignore those with a cheap pair of
sunglasses. There is a slight possibility of rain tonight, however, and
that will be tougher to hide from. Tomorrow will almost certainly be a
wet one, but the whole mess should be cleared up in time for a Satur-
day waltz through the Arb.
Defense takes setback
in 'TV addict's' trial
MIAMI (AP)-The defense has lost an early battle to introduce questions on
television violence in the murder trial of Ronald Zamora, the 15-year-old portrayed
as an addict of TV crime shows.
A jury of nine men and three women was seated late Tuesday after two days of
questioning during which defense lawyer Ellis Rubin was prevented several times
from asking prospective jurors about their TV viewing habits.
ZAMORA'S DEFENSE on charges that he and another teen-ager killed an
elderly woman during a robbery is that he suffered "insanity induced by too much
Television and still photographers are being allowed to cover the trial under a
2-month-old Florida State Supreme Court experiment that expires next year.
Zamora was arrested last June. Police sasid he and Darrell Agrella, 14, broke
into the Miami Beach home next to Zamora's where Elinor Haggart, 83, lived
Ronald Zamora's defense on charges that he and
another teen-ager killed an elderly woman during a
robbery is that he suffered "insanity induced by too
much television" . . . The defense has said "Kojak"
was one of Zamora's favorite shows and may have
contributed to his alleged insanity.
The home was ramsacked, more than $400 was stolen and Haggart was shot
with her own .32-caliber pistol, police said. They said Zamora rounded up some
friends for a trip to Disney World, using the dead woman's car and money.
BOTH BOYS were charged as adults with first-degree murder. Agrella's trial
is to be held next month.
The TV insanity defense, the courtroom TV experiment and the possibility that
Telly Savalas, star of the TV show "Kojak" may appear at the trial have drawn a
large press corps.
Savalas is to appear next week for a deposition and, possibly, court testimony.
The defense has said "Kojak" was one of Zamora's favorite shows, and may have
contributed to his alleged insanity.
The three major American television networks have assigned crews to the
trial. French, British and German news organizations have been following the

Government red tape,
WASHINGTON (AP) - A special
panel set up to reduce government
paperwork concluded yesterday -
after 36 separate reports and 770 rec-
ommendations - that Congress and
poorly written legislation are at the
root of government red tape.
It also suggested that President
Cart'er, who has vowed to simplify
the government and reduce its red
tape, ask Congress, to create a new
cabipet-level Department of Admin-
istration t irprove federal work
THE REPORT by the Commission
on Federal Paperwork prompted
immediate controversy. One mem-
ber, Bruce Fielding, called its work a
waste of money. A former staff
member, Philip Vargas, said his
study on government secrecy was
suppressed and replaced by one far

campaign and since taking office,
has frequently criticized what he
considered to be excessive paper-
work requirements imposed on con-
sumers, businesses, farmers and
industry by the federal government.
But, according to the commission,
"legislation is the root cause of
It said that at each stage of the
legislative process, Congress should
consider the paperwork, reporting
and recordkeeping procedures that
each bill would create.
IN PREPARING the 77-page re-
port, the commission heard com-
plaints about red tape from 3,500
The panel, made up of members of
Congress, state and local community
representatives, administration offi-
cials, and business and union lead-
ers, found that the cost of federal
paperwork may exceed $100 billion a
year, or about $500 for each U.S.
It said the burdens of paperwork
are both economic and psychologi-
As an example of the economic
burden, it said a school disregarded a
$4,500 grant because it would have
required $6,000 in paperwork.
It cited as an example of a
psychological burden "the frustra-
