The nation's volunteer agency ACTION said in Washington that it has disciplined an employee for sending an unauthorized letter to an anti-abortion group suggesting that it apply for federal anti-poverty grants. ACTION spokesman Jim Malone said that Myron E. McKee, special assistant to the agency's executive officer, received a letter of reprimand and was ordered to reimburse ACTION for about $150 in costs. Officials of Birthright, an anti-abortion group, had written asking how to apply for anti-poverty volunteers from VISTA--Volunteers in Service to America.
