Birth control re

WASHINGTON (AP) - Health and
Human Services Secretary Richard
Schweiker yesterday recommended a
rule requiring family planning clinics
supported by federal funds to notify
parents of minors who receive birth
control pills, diaphragms or in-
trauterine devices.
The Planned Parenthood Federation

of America immediately moved in U.S.
District Court to block implementation
of the rule, which still must be ap-
proved by the Office of Management
and Budget.

Eve Paul, Planned Parenthood's vice
president for legal affairs.
Schweiker said in a statement, "ThisM
department has a deep responsibility to
protect the health and safety of minor
adolescents who are given prescription
birth control drugs and devices paid fork
with taxpayer dollars."
He cited the 1981 budget act in which A
Congress encouraged parental par-
ticipation inateen-ager's use of family
planning services which receive
federal funds.
"WHILE THIS rule does not mandate
family participation, its great benefit is
that it will provide an opportunity for
family involvement where parents
were previously kept in the dark," hef
said. "This will help remove a barrier
between parents and adolescents,
thereby encouraging more com-
munication in many families."
Critics charged, however, that the
regulation would not promote parent-
child discussion about sex.
"These regulations are not going to
strengthen family communication;
they are going to endanger the health * * *.

to the pill and more effective than in-

DR. JACOB Stucki, Upjohn's vice
president for research, told the board,
"The evidence clearly demonstrates
that Depo-Provera's safety record un-
der general marketing conditions
justifies approval of contraceptive use
*n the U.S."
The five-day meeting of the public
inquiry board, ordered by the FDA at
-the request of Upjohn, amounts to an
appeal of the FDA's 1978 rejection of
Depo-Provera as a contraceptive.
The three-member board will make a
recommendation for a final decision to


FDA Commissioner Arthur Hayes. No
timetable for action has been set.
AT A NEWS conference called by the
Women's Health Network, three
women said they were given Depo-
Provera by their doctors for reasons
other than cancer treatment.
One woman said she subsequently
gave birth to a son with deformed legs,
the second said she developed cervical
cancer, and the third said her previous
menstrual problems worsened and that
cysts in her breasts increased.
None of their problems could be
medically linked to Depo-Provera, but
the health group said it has statistical
evidence that a large number of women
who have used the drug in the United
States have developed adverse effects.


MRC members to be named
(Continued from Page i)


he did not rule out the possibility that an
outsider would be chosen.
t. In choosing personnel for the MRC,
Gamota said the committee plans to
learn from the mistakes made by
similar corporations in their initial
stages at other universities.
The committee has to choose, for'
example, whether to seek technical,
managerial, or entrepreneurial people,
Gamota said.
ALTHOUGH the committee will con-
cern itself mainly with personnel and
operational matters, Gamota said con-
cerns voiced in the past by MRC critics
also will be addressed. For example,
some faculty members have raised
'questions regarding the ethics of
mixing profit and academics.
MRC supporters claim, however, that
because the University would be only

a minor stockholder in the corporation,
the MRC would not control the direction
of University research.
That, however, creates another
problem. Some faculty members fear
an MRC without University control will
run wild and deviate from its original
But University administrators argue
this would not be the case. Alan Price,
an assistant to the University's vice
president for research, said the MRC
would make it easier for the University
to get funds for current research.
Instead of an outside company
seeking out a professor to do a specific
type of research, Price explained, the
MRC could evaluate research that is
goins on at the University and then try
to get money from private citizens or
outside business interests.

Dow surges to another high
NEW YORK - The stock market climbed to record highs for the third
straight session yesterday in an advance inspired by hopes for a broadening
economic recovery.
The Dow Jones average of 30 industrials, down about five points at the out-
set, was up 16.28 at 1,092.35 by the close. Since last Aug. 12, the average has
risen more than 315 points.
Volume on the New York Stock Exchange came to 101.89 million shares,
against 127.29 million Friday.
Analysts said investors found increasing cause to believe that the economy
was beginning to pull out of its slump of the last 18 months.
"Even though the overall economy remains down and in poor condition,
there are some encouraging signs that deserve watching in the first quarter
of 1983," the National Association of Purchasing Management reported in
issuing the results of its monthly poll of corporate buying executives.
Soviets send missiles to Cuba
WASHINGTON - The Soviet Union recently delivered about 140 SAM-3
missiles to Cuba, apparently to strengthen air defenses around Havana, U.S.
intelligence sources said vesterday.
The SAM-3s arrived in late December, closing out a second straight year of
heavy Soviet arms shipments to Cubas armed forces, already rated the most
powerful in the region.
Shipments late last year also included two or three additional MIG-21 jet
fighters, said sources whodeclined to be identified.
Cuba has more than 200 MGs in its air force.
Pentagon officials estimated a month ago that the value of Soviet arms
delivered in 1982 had topped $1 billion, possibly exceeding the more than
66,000 tons of weapons provided by the Soviets to the Cubans in 1981.
Guerrillas press new Foffensive
amid Salvadoran military crisis
SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador - Leftist guerrillas pressed a new offensive
yesterday at a time when the military is deeply divided over a colonel's
rebellion against the high command.
The guerrillas' clandestine Radio Venceremos announced the offensive
over the weekend and two soldiers were reported killed and a dozen civilians
wounded in new fighting after a one-week lull.
Some 300,000 people in three provinces were without electricity because of
rebels attacks Sunday and yesterday.
All but two of El Salvador's top military commanders condemned the
rebellion of Col. Sigfredo Ochoa Perez as an affront to army discipline. "It is
deplorable that, in the current circumstances, actions of such a nature occur
in the armed forces, which find themselves fighting heroically together with
the people against subversion and international terrorism," their com-
munique said.
Only Cols. Rafael Bustillo of the air force and Adolfo Blandon of the army
1st Infantry San Carlos Brigade based in San Salvador did not sign the
document condemning the mutiny in northern Cabanas province. Their of-
fices said the men were not available for immediate comment.
Hyatt disaster trial cancelled,
KANSAS CITY, Mo. - A federal trial aimed at finding out who was respon-
sible for the collapse of sky walks at the Hyatt Regency Hotel was cancelled
yesterday after victims agreed to a $10 million settlement.
The tentative agreement was reached Sunday night and announced
yesterday as the class-action trial was about to begin. It provides a way of
resolving the last six lawsuits remaining in federal court.
A few cases still are unresolved in statd court, but none of those is expected
to result in a trial over responsibility for the disaster.
"This was a very complex and involved case, and the fact that it is settled
is a wonder in itself," said U.S. District Judge Scott Wright, who still has to
approve the plan before it becomes final.
Defector enjoys new freedom
TAPPEL Taiwan - A Chinese air force pilot who defected three months
ago in a MiG-19 says he regrets he didn't do it sooner so he could have gone
to college.
"In mainland China, many young people have very little chance of atten-
ding schools because of the limited facilities," said 25-year-old Wu Yung-ken
in an interview yesterday. "They become unemployed following high school
education. Only a few with good political background can squeeze into
Wu, who collected more than $2 million in gold for delivering the Soviet-
built jet and was made a major in the Nationalist Chinese air force at $750 a
month, said life in Taiwan is better than he expected.
"I may enjoy the material life in Taiwan," he said, "but the most impor-
tant of all is that I can live like a human being in contrast to my life prior-to
defection in mainland China."
He said the gold he got for the MiG-19 is in the bank.

new life
BO TON (AP) - Scientists trying to
contact extraterrestrial life have been
"searching for a needle in a cosmic
haystack for 20 years without success,
two astronomers said yesterday.,
However, an equipment
breakthrough soon will allow scientists
to greatly expand their hunt for radio
communication from alien beings, ac-
cording to the University of California
at Berkeley researchers.
AND A MORE sympathetic attitude
on the part of lawmakers, NASA and
the public - perhaps due to the
popularity of the movie "E.T., The Ex-
tra-Terrestrial" - also is helping the
search, they said.
Drs. Jill Tarter and C. Stuart Bowyer
said they have received several "false
alarms" and some unexplained radio
signals from space during their
separate research projects in the last
six years.
"It's like searching for a needle in a
cosmic haystack, and it would be hard
in a lifetime to even determine whether
you've tried enough places to give up,"
Tarter said.
