McDaniels, a foreman for the Ashton Co., of Tucson, testified that another young st?te employe, Francis Rollins, had been assigned to concrete inspection duties a f t e r only two weeks of "breaking in." He said Rollins could not read plans and "didn't understand concrete." McDaniels also t e s t i f i e d that curbing on the Aztec overpass exit ramp was laid w i t h o u t state inspection and "looked like a snake." He said, "we eyeballed it through" in laying the curbing rather than following engineering surveys, budwig said an exit ramp at the overpass should be replaced because the entrance was only about 14 feet in width rather than the prescribed 18 feet. THE TESTIMONY related to work on two projects covering about 15.5 miles of a 31-mile project representing a federal investment of more than $4 million. The federal contribution was 94.6 per cent of the total cost of the road. The Ashton Co. held two contracts for work on the project. The committee also hoped to question James Shipp, also a former employe of the s t a t e highway department. Shipp now is employed by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation at Yuma. The line of questioning was foreshadowed yesterday when William L. Butler, a concrete inspector for the h i g h w a y de- p a r t m e n t , was asked w h a t he knew about the f a l s i f i c a t i o n of test results. Butler said t h e r e had been "common talk" of such falsification but that he could not remember who had told him about it. BUTLER TESTIFIED that he had been ordered by the resident engineer to falsify records so that the c o n t r a c t n i would be credited w i t h con struction work which had no been done. Other testimony indicatec that the contractor receivec the credit to pay for e x t n work done as a result of mis takes by s t a t e engineers. Com mittee counsel said the chang es had resulted in paymen by the federal government o costs which properly shouk not have been charged to fed eral aid funds. Washington Democratic leaders of the House Education Committee give up all hope this year for general federal aid to schools legislation. They are dropping it from the education bill.

PAGE 17 The World State Sales Tax Take Up Quarter-Million PHOENIX -- f/P) -- State sales tax collections during April were more than $250,000 higher this year than in 1962. Tax Commission Chairman Thad Moore reported yesterday that collections totaled $4,429,862, compared with $4,160,029 in the same month last year. The state's special education excise tax brought in an additional $2,250,493 l a s t month, compared with $2,106,248 in 1962. State liquor and tobacco tax collection hit a new record of $802,624. Last April $728,805 was collected. Use tax collections totaled $71,607 compared with $46,178 in 1962. Tidelands Inn Sold To Texan The Tidelands Motor Inn, o 919 N.

Because of this cross-reac- ion, Maddy ran into difficul- y in t r y i n g to map the disuse's distribution. Further kin tests were conducted, his t i m e on home-raised cat- le. And as a result, high evels of infection were found n certain areas of the state: i n a l , Maricopa and Pima counties. With the results of these ests and others performed by the Navy in San Diepo, \iackly and his research team were able to confirm that the south-central areas of Arizona was the most infected valley fever area in the world. Maddy, who now is with the National Institute of Al- cr»y and I n f e c t i o u s Diseases, Bethesda, Mel., said the best studies on the disease were done by the m i l i t a r y at the prisoner of war camp just north of Florence. Fifty per cent of the POWs became infected w i t h the sickness six months after their arrival. "It is possible that all the c o n s t r u c t i o n work under way in building the camp made the area p a r t i c u l a r l y infective at the time by stirring up the soil," he said. Although the soil in this area has been restored to its natural state, tests still indicate that a person in the Florence area is mnre likely to catch the disease. Valley fever is a strange disease. It can affect people w i t h o u t showing any symp- toms at all. Other persons get infected with an influenza- like illness which can be mild for some and severe in others. The less-frequent and more severe cases, however, spread the infection throughout the body and in spite of new treatments cause death in about 50 per cent of their victims. Blancarte said there was well-documented e v i d e n c e compiled in Mexicali, Baja California, to show t h a t bra- ceros or farm workers ret u r n i n g from the U. S. have come down w i t h severe valley fever. Although it was known that many of the infected Mexicans had "passed through" their own endemic areas, studies had shown that these particular victims had contracted the disease in the U. S. The theory of sterilizing the soil is based on the idea that if scientists can discover what is causing the h a r m f u l fungus to prow in the soil they can somehow reverse the process. "In other words," said Furcolow, "we should try and create a local and u n f a v o r a b l e condition where the organism now is growing by using some sort of a fungicide." Furcolow is one of the country's leading a u t h o r i t i e s on valley fever. He is best known for his work in the treatment of the disease. "It is the present conception that desert w i n d s blow the spores from the f u n g u s and these spores i n f e c t people. This has led people to t h i n k that by walking down the streets of Tucson they can get the fever," he said. But now, however, a theory t h a t valley fever oc- i _ . :., I^c:ili7t'(l SOOlS curs only in spot v u i -J "···./ . . ,,.. · and not all over, he said, i 1 is boinj- so, he added, the solution to valley fever is not in finding a vaccine, but in finding the source. And if the .sources are not over large areas, then t h e . as could he sprayed w i t h are a sterilizing agent. i Furcolow told of sources In California f o u r where valley fever had been isolated. Strange thing about them, he said, is that the disease had been Isolated i n spots where Indians had once burned camp fires. This suggests that the fires had caused some c h e m i c a l changes that are favorable to growth of the fungus.
