Heroin addicts occupy part of hospital

NEW YORK UP) - Bare-
chested in the sweltering heat,
the young heroin addicts wan-
dered through the ward on the
eighth floor of a building at
Harlem Hospital.
Other addicts lay on thin
mattresses that lined the floor
of the ward, unconscious from
methadone, a synthetic heroin
substitute drug given to relieve
withdrawal symptoms.
They were among nearly 308
addicts who have moved in since
several community groups oc-
cupied the seventh and eighth
floors of the building Saturday
and set up their own drug treat-

ment center, ignoring a hospital
request to leave.
"This is a means of survival,"
Martha Davis, cochairman of
one of the groups, said yester-
day. "We will not leave. We will
remain until the walls of Jericho
come tumbling down."
The occupiers, led by the
United Harlem Drug Fighters,
have rejected an offer of 50 beds
from the hospital. They are ask-
ing for four floors in the build-
ing, a clearing house for addicts
in Harlem, emergency funds for
their makeshift treatment cen-
ter and recognition of a com-
munity advisory board.

The hospital has cooperated
by providing bedding, food and
treatment such as methadone.
Some doctors and nurses from
the hospital have worked on a
voluntary basis, along with
m e m b e r s of the occupying
groups.
Mrs. Davis said the two floors
were vacant when the communi-
ty groups moved in. The hos-
pital said the eighth floor was
to be converted for use *as a
psychiatric treatment center.
The occupiers also have asked
Mayor John Lindsay to enter
the dispute "personally."
Calvin Brooks, 19, was a spok-

esman for the youths on the
eighth floor. He joined the pro-
gram Sunday night. He took his
last fix on Saturday, he said.-
"For eight months I've been
trying to get myself together,"
he said. "I've never felt so good
since I've been using drugs."
Calvin said he began using drugs
four years ago.
"Right now, I think I'm
strong enough to stay off drugs
for good," he said.
Paul Edwards, 43, raised his
blue hospital shirt to show a
curved scar under his left breast.
He said he had been using drugs
for 13 years. He became addict-
ed after open heart surgery.
He said the state's antidrug
rehabilitatior center program
was a failure because "there
isn't any place where one might
come in right off the street."
Marina Gibson, 16, explained

her desire to stop using heroin,
"I'm pregnant."
"I don't want my child to be
addicted or deformed," she said.
Several addicts told of long
delays in gaining admission to
city or state treatment centers,
and criticized treatment periods
that run from nine months to
three years.

But there is built-in opposi-
tion in Congress to an agree-
ment stripping it even of veto
power over mail-rate increases.
And Postmaster General Win-
ton Blount, in a noncommital
statement, said he wants to see
how much control the agree-
ment would give the new cor-
porate-like Postal ;service over
Its revenues-and how much
benefit special-interest groups
get "at the expense of the tax-
payers,"
Barring a major catastrophe,"
said Rep. 'Edward Derwinski,
{R-Ili), as the conferees broke
up yesterday, "we're in agree-
ment."
Major issues already are lock-
ed into the agreement, he said,
and the conferees will meet this
afternoon to "sign the papers"
on a final compromise.
Congress should be able to
pass the bill late next week for
President Nixon's signature the
following week, Derwinski said.
And he said he is confident the
administration will endorse it.
"They aren't as happy as if
they'd written it themselves,"
Derkinski said, "but they got a
helluva lot better bill than it
looked like they could get in
January."
