Care to Elderly and Disabled Provided by Traveling Nurse Tlmti Herald, Carroll, la. Tuuday, April 27, 1976 FUNNY BUSINESS By Roger Bollen By John Hayes Salem Capital Journal KERNVILLE, Ore. (AP) It had been raining hard for nearly a week when Normajean Haller set out for the Weslow farm on the lower Siletz River. She knew the river would be nearly at flood stage and wondered whether she could cross safely. Driving down the winding gravel road along the north bank between Siletz and Kernville, she made a long loop around Euchre Mountain and pulled off the road at a small garage beside a creek. By the time she had gathered her nurse's equipment and crossed the road, Joe Weslow's boat appeared on the river heading toward her. The muddy current was carrying stumps and large limbs as it rushed by, but when Weslow beached the riverboat in the creek mouth, Mrs. Haller stepped in. Weslow swung the craft out into the powerful current, and in a few minutes they both landed on the far bank before the Weslows' farmhouse. Normajean Haller is carrying on one of the oldest traditions in the nursing profession: she travels the back roads of the rugged Coast Range bringing nursing care to elderly and disabled people in all parts of Lincoln County. She is a registered nurse, part of the Lincoln County health department's home health agency. The agency, started in 1966, has become one of the department's most successful and appreciated programs. With two other nurses, two physical therapists and two office clerks, Mrs. Haller is taking the health department's services into the homes of people who need them most. Her patients avoid the expense and unhappiness that can result from an extended stay in a hospital or a nursing home. Mrs. Haller was visiting Etha Weslow, 75, a cheerful woman who fills an active and essential role in her farming family although she has been confined to a wheelchair since, her leg was amputated last year. Recently she also fell and broke her hip. Without Mrs. Haller's visits she would probably have to be placed in a Portland hospital. Apart from the trauma of being away from her husband and son, it would cost the Weslows about $100 a day. Mrs. Weslow still does all the cooking and much of the housework. "I've been here 53 years," she said, "and I always had to do for myself." Nurse Haller made this trip to give her a blood pressure test and a blood sugar test. 1 It is vital for Mrs. Weslow to know whether her low sugar diet is keeping her blood sugar level within reasonable limits. Mrs. Haller was in no hurry to leave once the tests had Business & Professional Directory QJU&JICL OJtA.

She finds herself serving the elderly patients in ways that sometimes are not directly related to health. "I find myself acting as'an adviser to spme-of my patients," she said. "They know me, and when they have trouble they get ahold of me." Mrs. Haller was trained in ' Baker, Ore., at the St. Elizabeth School of Nursing, and joined the county's program the first year it Reporting on Other Doctors is Kept in Bill DES MOINES, Iowa (API — A doctor's license should require him to report serious wrongdoing by other doctors, the Senate decided Monday. The Senate voted 20-27 to defeat a proposal by Sen. Charles Miller, D-Burlington, to remove the reporting requirement from legislation designed to hold down costs of medical malpractice insurance. "Doctors should morally and ethically report serious incidents, but I don't think it should be a matter of law that they have to report," Miller said. • . He said requiring medical personnel to report "grossly negligent, careless or reckless behavior" is un-American. . ' "No;one knows better when someone is performing rh'al-' practice than doctors themselves," said Sen. Robert Carr. D-Dubuque", who favored retaining the provision.' Debate on the measure continued Tuesday. "One of the problems with malpractice (insurance) is the malpractice that does exist," Sen. Lowell Junkins/ D-JVIon- trose, told the Senate. The measure is designed to hold down the insurance rates by cutting down the amount of' malpractice performed. It does that through making it mandatory for doctors, nurses, dentists, pharmacists and others in the health field to report incidences of malpractice. PJ; The various'licensing ^boards are given additional, powers to suspend or revoke licenses"'and otherwise' sanction offenders. The Senate accepted a modification of a section of the bill that would have the courts review contingency fee arrangements between the plaintiff and his attorney. That proposal, by Sen. Lucas DeKoster, R-Hull. accepted on voice vote, would have the court review the attorney's fee if the plaintiff 103 N.

James Redmond, D-Cedar Rapids, to eliminate the review was defeated 14-29. A proposal by Sen. William Palmer, D-Des Moines, to allow insurance companies to pay large awards for pain and suffering over several years was ruled out of order. Urges Ban on Garbage Feed to Hogs DES MOINES, Iowa (API — Congress should take steps immediately to ban the feeding of garbage to hogs because of the danger of hog cholera, says Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Robert Lounsberry. Citing figures gathered by Dr. E.A. Butler, state veter- nin'arian for the Iowa Department of Agriculture. Lounsberry said that outbreak, confined mostly to the East Coast, has cost about • $4 million in losses. •' He noted that Iowa has not had an outbreak of hog cholera since 1970 and other swine producing states have comparable records. "It seems ironic that the total swine industry is penalized by ,. unwarranted procedure of a very small part of the entire industry." he added. Smith Named to School Post WEST DES MOINES. Iowa (AP) — The deputy state superintendent for public instruction. Dr, Richard Smith, has' been named director of administration and finance in the West Des Moines School District.

Los Angeles West Iowa Bookshelf Edited By Mary Ann Riley THE CRUCIAL YEARS 1939-1941 — THE WORLD AT WAR. By Hanson W. Baldwin. (Harper and Row, $20.00) This book, propertly acclaimed as the authoritative account of the crisis of World War II, is an invaluable contribution to a period in history that General J. M. Gavin astutely regrets "has been neglected." This history of the first half of the war through Pearl Harbor begins by outlining the causes, discusses the political leaders of those days, and describes the steps taken that inevitably led to the shooting war in 1939. With great comprehension Body in River is Identified CEDAR RAPIDS. Iowa (AP) — The decomposed body of a man found floating in the Cedar River here Sunday has been identified through dental records. Linn County Asst. Coroner Joseph Galles said Monday. He said Edward Kueny. 20. Van Home, .was a possible accidental drowning victim. Galles said Kueny was last seen March 12 when he attended a class at Kirkwood College here. Authorities later found Kueny's car at the end of a bridge crossing the river in Cedar Rapids. The body was sighted floating in the Cedar River Sunday. Because it was in a relatively inaccessible area, authorities used a helicopter to retrieve it from the water. * Security * High rate of interest * Peace of mind Your hard earned savings $Dollars are precious to you.

The historical perspective of these war years is best described in the author's own words: "... The seeds of today were sown in 1941. This was the war that marked the transformation of the small war Hitler had wanted into a world at war, the greatest in human history. This was the year that marked the dim beginnings of a Russian communist super state and the slow flexing of American power, the year that was to doom the remaining empires of yesterday and to bestow all over the world the slippery gift of political freedom upon regions, countries and colonies that knew little of the art of self-government. "It was the beginning of the end of World War II. of the first half of the twentieth century, of the world that was. with its ordered security and accepted values: and the beginning of an uncertain future of rapid and violent changes, whose end man still seeks to devine." This book is a marvelous addition to the continuing imperative of understanding the life of our times. — Harold A. Goldman Jury Selected in Slaying Trial BURLINGTON. Iowa (AP) —Testimony has begun in Des Moines County District Court here in the murder trial of a Mount Pleasant man. A jury of eight men and four women was selected Monday to hear the case of Michael Millspaugh, 24. who is charged in the slaying last Jan. 22 of J. Raymond Traut of Salem. The jury heard testimony from the deputy sheriff who found Traut's body, a pathologist, two bartenders and a rural Mount Pleasant farmer who said he played cards with Millspaugh on the night of the slaying. Dr. Gary Lust testified that Traut died of two gunshot wounds to the head. He said the first entered the head from the back and either of the two could have been fatal. Two bartenders at the VFW Club in Mount Pleasant told the court that Millspaugh was at the club the night Traut was killed, but that he left and was gone aBout half an hour. Millspaugh has claimed the shooting was accidental.
