GOP asks repeal of
$5 marijuana fine

WASHINGTON (Reuter) - A
former Agriculture Department
grain inspector told Senate in-
vestigators yesterday of threats
against his life after he report-
ed finding sour corn bound for
export in a ship's hull.
The testmony came as two
Senate Agriculture subcommit-
tees continued hearings into al-
leged widespread corruption in
the U.S. grain inspection system
that has already brought 31 in-

dictments.
THE FORMER inspector,!
Robert Johnson, testified he had
taken bribes while working forl
the department and for the pri-
vate Destrehan Grain Inspec-i
tion Co.
Johnson told the subcommit-;
tees that after he refused two
years ago to permit a ship to
be loaded wth soybeans becauset
he had discovered sour corn in

HOA, contract talks
By JO MARCOTTY
After two weeks of stalled negotiations, the University and
the hospital interns and residents union have agreed to continue
bargaining on a new contract.
The bargaining teams met Wednesday night with a labor
mediator, and according to union sources, the mediator "was
helpful in getting us both talking again."
DOUGLAS GEISTER, head bargainer for the University,
agreed that the presence of the mediator had a positive effect on
their talks.
"He (the mediator) seemed to think there were a number of
issues which were negotiable," Geister said.
Next Monday the University and the House Officers Assoc.
union will hold another bargaining session. However, the mediator
will not be present.
THE MAJOR stumbling blocks in the negotiations are a wage
increase, and patient care and work environment issues.
The HOA is demanding a 12 per .cent annual pay hike, but
so far the University has offered a six per cent increase.
Also, the interns and residents want more control in patient
care and list 17 changes in patient care policies in their proposed
contract.
HOWEVER, according to union sources the University will
not consider these issues.
Geister declined comment on those demands, and said, "Our
posture is that we have negotiated in good faith and will continue
to negotiate in good faith."
HOA sources maintained that patient care is the most diffi-
cult issue separating the bargaining teams.
"It is my belief that in the key area of work environment
(and patient care) we have reached a philosophical impasse.
They seem to think that work environment is reserved to man-
agement. We believe otherwise because they are our conditions,
and we feel we have a right to have a say in patient care," HOA
sources said.
A year ago, when similar contract talks stalled, the HOA
held a brief work slowdown at University Hospital. The union
members refused to perform non-vital, administrative duties dur-
ing the job action.

its hull, he began to hear ru-
mors from longshoremen and
grain inspectors that "there
was a contract out to take my
life."
The Agriculture Department's
Office of Investigation ignored
his report of the threats, he
said.
JOHNSON ADDED that after
quitting his job in March, 1974,
he began carrying a pistol tof
protect himself.
An office of investigation re-
port introduced. into the record
by Sen. Dick Clark {D-Iowa), in-
dicated the investigators talked
with a number of persons who
had reported the rumors to
Johnson.
Johnson acknowledged accept-
ing bribes while an inspector
with the largest bribe amount-
ing to $1,000. Johnson also said
he took a $1,000 bribe while em-
ployed by the Agriculture De-
partment.
MEANWHILE, Harlen Ryan,
supervisor of the Agriculture
Department's grain division in
New Orleans, said that despite
publicity given to mis-weighing
and mis-grading of grains, he
believed the abuses were con-
tinuing.
Ryan, assigned to New Or-
leans at about the time the
probe began last year, testified
that "whenever we catch them
(in one type of abuse) they go
on to something else."
Ryan said that since he took
over the office, one grain ele-
vator obtained an injunction,
quickly dismissed, to prohibit
his employes from inspecting
their grain.
"THEY COULDN'T load grain'
while we were there," Ryan
said. Sen. Hubert Humphrey (D-
Minn.), asked him: "You mean'
they couldn'ttload it the way
they wanted to?"
Ryan agreed, saying that dur-
ing a two-month period the ele-
vator loaded only two ships
rather than an average of one.
a day as they had previously.
He said delays were caused
by grain division employes re-
peatedly discovering weevils in
the grain being loaded, forcing
the elevator company to fumi-
gate the ship, a time-consuming
process.
ALTHOUGH most of the al-
leged mis-weighing and mis-
grading so far uncovered has
been at Louisiana ports, a fed-
eral investigator testified Thurs-
day he believed similar decep-
tions were practiced at other
Gulf and Atlantic ports.
The investigator, Gerald Gal-'
linghouse, urged more govern-
ment control over the inspection,
of export grains.
