The two leading lupus support groups in California have launched a campaign to persuade Assemblyman Tom Bane (D-Tarzana) and other state officials not to divert $572,000 earmarked for lupus research to other health programs. They also want to convince the officials that a controversial state Lupus Appropriations Board should not be abolished. The three-member board, which has dispensed nearly $6.2 million in state funds to scientists since it was established by the Legislature in 1976, has not held its annual meeting to award $572,000 appropriated to it in this year's budget.

A coalition of lupus support groups asked the state attorney general on Wednesday to investigate a nonprofit lupus foundation headed by Assemblyman Tom Bane (D-Tarzana) and a series of allocations of public funds by a state lupus research board headed by Bane's wife. The groups questioned the state board's allocation of $800,000 to a physician friend of the Banes and claimed, in a letter to Atty. Gen. John Van de Kamp, that the research "contracted for by the state was simply not done, unless it was done so badly that it was not publishable."

Assemblyman Tom Bane (D-Tarzana) has returned a 1986 campaign contribution of $1,000 to the City of Hope National Medical Center because it may have jeopardized the hospital's tax-free status, worth millions of dollars a year. Bane, who serves on the Duarte institution's volunteer board of trustees and heads a foundation that supports research at the City of Hope, returned the money late last month after The Times inquired about the contribution. Bane's campaign committee had listed it on a March, 1986, campaign report filed with the state.

An obscure state medical research board headed by Marlene Bane, a prominent Democratic fund-raiser who is married to Assemblyman Tom Bane (D-Tarzana), has operated with extraordinary autonomy in dispensing nearly $6.2 million in state funds to scientists. The state Lupus Appropriations Board's makeup, evaluation process, some of its grant decisions and its link to the campaign fund-raising operation run by Marlene Bane have raised troubling questions over the years among grant applicants, state Department of Health Services officials and even current board members, according to state records and interviews.
