Monastery to care
for infants with AIDS
ANAPOLIS, Calif. (AP)-A
mountaintop monastery is
opening its doors to unwanted
infants born with AIDS who
otherwise might spend their brief
lives shut away in hospitals.
"We believe that in the few
months they have after birth and
before the disease takes them,
there is time for-these babies to feel
the leaves and see the sun," said
Brother Toby McCarroll of the
"THAT'S why we're going to
give them a home."
The Roman Catholic
monastery will care for as many
as four infants with the disease
and wants to help find homes for
as many as 20 others.
Starcross, located on about 115
acres in the Coastal Range
roughly 80 miles north of San
Francisco, is self-sufficient,
maintaining a small herd of
milking cows, gardens and
selling Christmas trees and
THE monastery has five
adults, a 16-year-old foster child
and one healthy adopted infant in
residence. In the past, the group
has cared for 15 children with
special medical and emotional
needs, McCarroll said.
After reading about AIDS-
infected babies last March,
Starcross members decided to
investigate the possibility of
taking in some of those infants,
Eventually, Starcross hopes to
find up to 20 homes for babies with
AIDS. He said several supporters
of the monastery, from Santa
Rosa to Marin County, have
expressed an interest in taking
care of such a child.
COMPILED FROM ASSOCIATED PRESS REPORTS
Gandhi survives gun attack
NEW DELHI, INDIA-A man in an army uniform fired a
homemade pistol yesterday at Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi and
President Zail Singh, missing them but slightly wounding six
other people. Authorities said the captured assailant did not belong
to a terror group.
The shooting triggered an investigation into protection given the
prime minister, who has been threatened repeatedly by Sikh
separatists. Police said the gunman was not a Sikh.
The government said several police assigned to protect Gandhi
were suspended after the attack, which occurred as Gandhi and the
president left a prayer service commemorating the 117th
anniversary of the birth of Mohandas Gandhi, who led India's
struggle for independence from Britain.
Two of the injured said they were standing next to Gandhi when
the gunman fired, and were hit by pellets intended for the prime
Stud ysays child poverty up
WASHINGTON-The number of poor children jumped 30
percent between 1979 and 1984, while participation rates in two key
federal programs dropped sharply among America's
impoverished young, a congressional report said yesterday.
The rate of participation in Head Start and Aid to Families witb
Dependent Children fell more than 20 percent during the five-year:
period as the number of poor children jumped from 9.9 million t
12.9 milion, the study said.
"The record growth in poverty among children has not been
acompanied by increased availability of key safety net:
programs," said the report by the Democratic-run House Select
Committee on Children, Youth and Families.
"To the contrary, support programs are not reaching the
majority of those in need, (and) are not most available where child$
poverty is greatest."
But the report, entitled "Safety Net Programs: Are They
Reaching Poor Children?" drew blistering dissents from th&
panel's 10 Republican members.
House panel convenes over
US man held in Yugoslavia
WASHINGTON-A House subcommittee met in emergency
session yesterday on the plight of Peter Ivezaj, a naturalized U.S.
citizen expected to stand trial in Yugoslavia for joining in a
peaceful 1981 anti-Yugoslav rally here.
"He may languish in a dark cell for years if we fail to convince
Yugoslavian officials that we really do want him set free,"
testified Rep. William Broomfield (R-Mich.), the lone witness at
Ivezaj, of Sterling Heights, Mich., was jailed by Yugoslav
authorities in August while he and his family weme visiting
relatives in that country. He is an ethnic Albanian who was born
in Yugoslavia and emigrated to the United States in 1972.
"It is interesting to note that he protested legally on American
soil, and that he is being charged for an activity which is legal by
U.S. standards," Broomfield said.
Job stress threatens health
ATLANTA-Stress, boredom, and frustration at work are
causing substantial health problems for Americans, the national
Centers for Di'sease Control said yesterday.
Numerous job-related insurance claims filed around the
country are citing mental stress, and "there is increasing
evidence that an unsatisfactory work environment may contribute
to psychological disorders," the CDC said in its weekly report,
prepared by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and
A study released last year by the National Council on
Compensation Insurance found that claims for the gradual onset
of "mental stress" accounted for more that one in every 10
occupational-disease-and-injury claims, and the average cost of
those claims was higher than for other work-related health
Conditions such as work overload, lack of control over one's job,
non-supportive bosses and colleagues, limited job opportunity,
undefined tasks, rotating work shifts, and operating at a
machine-set pace all can contribute to a worker's dissatisfaction
with his job.
Thousands die annually-
from prescription misuse
WASHINGTON-Federal health officials are worried -that
America's "other drug problem"-the taking of prescribed
medications incorrectly or not at all-may be causing tens of
thousands of deaths each year.
Dr. Robert Windom, the Reagan Administration's top health
official, said yesterday up to half of the 1.6 billion medicines
prescribed to Americans each year are taken improperly.
He said one study indicated that 125,000 people die each year
from failure to take their medication for cardiovascular disease.
"The toll in mental disorientation, in physical effects, and even
in terms of life and death may be just as great when a 70-year-old
woman takes her blood pressure medicine improperly as when her.
grandson smokes marijuana or takes a street drug," said Dr..
Frank Young, the commisioner or food and drugs.
More than 10 percent of hospital admissions are related to
misuse of prescription drugs,,said Windom.
