Filipino nurses give
aid to VA suspects

Austin denies forcing campaign gifts

CHICAGO (UPI) - The Fili-
pino Nurses Organization of Chi-
cago has set up a fund to help
defray legal expenses for two
Filipino nurses charged with
murdering five patients at the
Veterans Administration Hospit-
al.
"I believe, like all Americans,
that anyone is innocent until
proven otherwise," Betsy Caba-
tit-Segal, president of the nurs-
es organization, said yesterday.
SHE SAID her organization
has raised about $625 and has
approached between 80 and 90
other Filipino groups seeking
support.
One of the two nurses, Leo-
nora Perez, 31, was living in
Evanston, Ill., and working at
the Veterans Administration
Lakeside Hospital in Chicago
when she was arrested last
week. U.S. Magistrate Carl
Sussman ordered her held on
$500,000 bond. She was trans-
ferred by airplane to Ann Ar-
bor last Friday.
The other nurse, Filipina Nar-
cisco, 30, Ypsilanti, has been
held without bond since she was
arrested following the indict-
ments by a federal grand jury
in Detroit.
CABATIT-SEGAL said news-
paper headlines on March 2
linked the two to the case, al-
though they had yet to be in-
dicted, and called it "a throw-

back to the vilest type of yel-
low journalism."
She said she could not say
whether Perez, mother of a 3-
year-old boy and pregnant, "was
guilty or innocent."
She said she and other Fili-
pino nurses went to Perez' ar-
raignment last Thursday, and
"basically we were there for
moral support."
"ANYONE in their position
would need support," she said.
Cabatit-Segal said the Filipino
Nurses Organization also raised
money in 1966 after Richard
Speck killed eight young wom-
en on Chicago's South Side, in-
cluding two Filipino student
nurses, and paid for the bodies
to be transported back to the
Philippines.
"I hate to work in a crisis,
but unfortunately this is how
people operate," she said.

DETROIT (UPI) - Secretary
of State Richard Austin an-
nounced a series of moves yes-
terday to counteract reports
that his branch office managers
have been forced to contribute
to Austin's campaign for the
U.S. Senate.
Reports in the state last week
alleged that some unnamed
branch office managers were
compelled to contribute money
to Austin's Democratic primary
campaign. Some said the
amounts also were set for them.
BUT THE secretary of state
denied that his campaign has
accepted anything but voluntary
contributions, and he outlined
steps to "refute once and for
all the politically inspired har-
rassment."
"I have made forthright de-
nials of the political charges
that branch managers have
been pressured to support my
candidacy," Austin said, "and
I have offered repeatedly to
have returned any contributions
where the slightest coercion was

involved."
Austin said no manager has
ever approached him to com-
plain about pressure to contri-
bute.
HE SAID he was asking the
Michigan Fair Campaign Prac-
tices Commission to conduct an
independent survey of branch
managers to learn if any were
forced to donate money to his
campaign.
Austin also said he would ask
any branch manager who take
back any contribution they fell
was made under implied or di-
rect coersion.
lie asked the Internal Reve-
nue Service and the state De-
partment of Revenue to audit
Iis personal and campaign
books, and he promised to re-
lease his campaign contribution
report when it is filed with the
federal government next month.
"CONCERN over campaign
contributions is legitimate and
healthy," Austin said, "but in
some instances it has gone be-
yond legiticate concern and has

become political harrassment.
"That is why I am taking
these steps, so that we can
clear up this matter and per-
mit the voters to find out where
the candidates stand on the
genuine issues of the Senate
race."
Austin added that contribu-
tions from branch manages
probably will not exceed 20 per
cent of the $300,000 he expects
to spend in the primary.
