THURSDAY EVENING, MAY 2, 1963 T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N PAGE 5 Report Of Funds On Hand Denied By State Educators By ROB WOOD Associated Press Political Writer Officials from Arizona's three institutions of higher learning reaffirmed their need for construction funds today while denying a report that the schools had on deposit some $6.9 million in unspent appropriations. Capital sources reported that Arizona State University has $3.6 million in unencumbered building funds, the University of Arizona $3.2 million and Arizona State College $250,000. Some Arizona House members, strongly opposed to a special session on the capital outlay problem, contend these funds would meet the school needs until the legislature meets next January. The sources said the money had been accumulating at the two universities and college since 1955. Dr. R. L. Nugent, UA executive vice president, said: "All capital outlay funds available to the university at the present time are allocated for the completion of projects approved by the legislature prior to 1963. These funds are all on deposit w i t h the state treasurer." Nugent issued the statement in the absence of President Richard A. Harvill, who is in Washington, D. C. Dr. Lawrence Walkup, president at ASC, said "If we have $250,000 lying around, I wish somebody would show it to me. We certainly could use the money right now." Walkup said the college had between $15,000-$18,000 in surplus f u n d s at the present. "We do have $125,000 on deposit for land acquisition," he said, "but this is tied up in a verbal contract for purchase of some forest land. The money will be used for that purpose as soon as negotiations are completed." The president added: "Sen. Robert Morrow, D-Mohave, is in Flagstaff now checking on our needs. Talk to h i m . He will tell you there are no unencumbered funds. This report is false." Dr. G. Homer Durham, ASU president, said, "We h a v e s o m e appropriated money that has not been spent because contracts have not been let or awarded. This is the figure I assume the re- ports mention. But this money is committed for buildings already approved by earlier legislative session." And Elwood W. Bradford of Yuma, president of the Arizona Board of Regents, said, "If funds are available for these expenditures, I don't know anything about it. I am sure 1 would know because I worked on the budget." The universities will have an opportunity to plead their case next May 10 before the Senate Appropriations Committee. Sen. Den Arnold, D-Pinal, chairman of the Senate committee, said special meetings will be held both on May 9 and 10. The first day will be spent studying the needs of the state hospital, prison, chil- Medical Panel Turns Spotlight On Pain dren's colony and highway department. Arnold said the House Appropriations Committee, the m a i n surgeon in cutting down the capital outlay requests last session, may attend the sessions. A squabble between the House and Senate scuttled the construction fund requests. Since the end of the regular session, there have been repeated demands for a special session for consideration of capital outlays. Gov. Paul Fanmn still has not decided whether to summon the lawmakers back in June. In the original capital outlay requests, ASU asked for $5.1 million, the UA $5.4 m i l l i o n and ASC $1.3 million. Temporary Raising Of Debt Limit Advances WASHINGTON--UPI--The House Ways Means Committee, by a 15-10 party line vote, approved a bill today that would boost the legal limit on the national debt to a record $309 billion during July and August. Treasury Secretary Douglas Dillon has indicated the debt ceiling will have to be boosted to about $320 billion after August to cope with the red-ink spending in prospect during the new fiscal year starting July 1. The committee - approved bill would boost the temporary ceiling, now set at $305 billion, to $307 billion through J u n e 30. This is designed to tide the Treasury through the re.st of the fiscal year. Before approving the measure, the committee rejected a Republican .substitute t h a t would have made permanent the present $305 billion level. This also was done by a 15-10 party line vote. Under existing law the limit would drop to $300 billion on J u n e 25 and to its permanent level of $285 billion on July 1. Aristotle once described pain as "a passion of the soul." But today, in a panel discussion at the Pioneer Hotel in conjunction with the A r i - zona Medical Association's annual convention, a group of medical doctors preferred to look upon pain in a somewhat less profound light. All of them seemingly agreed that pain was perhaps the first reason for the development of the physician and that its control remains one of the principal interests of medical science. In the opinion of Dr. Paul R. Dumke, chairman of the department of anesthesiology at the Henry Ford Hospital, Detroit, pain is perhaps the most important of the symptoms being treated by medicine today. AND THE MORE we understand it, the more successful will be the medical management of it, said Dr. John R. Green, head of the Barrow Neurological Institute, Phoenix. "Unfortunately pain is a Rocketing XI5 Reaches o 'Iii-Between' Space Area Tucson's Finest Apartment Selection By Day-Week-Month The CHATEAU The EMPRESS The CHALET SPECIAL SUMMER RATES Hoated swimming pool 1 and 2 Bedrooms Completely furnished or unfurnished Hontlng Refrigeration (Individually controlled) Close to shopmnn 8. bus Maid Service OFFICE AT 3666 E. 2ND ST. EDWARDS AFB, Calif.-(/P)--The X15 rocketed to an "in between" region of space today to investigate radiation from ultraviolet and infrared rays. Flashing at nearly five times the speed of sound, chief Space Agency pilot Joe Walker probed 35 miles high --where other craft do not carry out scientific explorations. He flew below the orbital path of satellites and above the a l t i t u d e range of other winged aircraft. M i s s i l e s streak through the same region, but too fast for such experiments. Walker's speed was estimated at more than 3,500 miles an hour. A special instrument "package" mounted near the top of the X15's tail measured radiation from ultraviolet and infrared ray spectrum. Results will be studied by the Cambridge Research Laboratory of Massachusetts to learn characteristics of the rays. It was the 81st research mission of the X15 and paved the way for flights in the near f u t u r e to over 58 miles in space. A Space Agency spokesman said the XlS's world altitude aircraft record of 59.6 miles probably soon would be surpassed. The X I 5 eventually is expected to climb 75 miles high. universal experience of m a n k i n d and everybody knows what is meant by it," said Dumke, who · described the methods of the anesthesiologist in the treatment of pain The most sensible therapy for pain, he said, involves the interruption of the mechanism that produces it. But many physicians, be cause of their busy schedules resort to easier and less time consuming methods of p a i n treatment. These involve the use of analgesics, which some times can be h a r m f u l . DUMKE URGED HIS fellow, physicians to "diagnose pain' and not just give drugs to treat it. "It is dangerous to real pain with drugs if you Jon't know what is causing he pain." There is always the danger that patients for whom drugs have been prescribed 11 become narcotics addicts, le said. Dumke, who deals mostly /ith patients who have under;one surgery or are about to undergo surgery, said he had 'ound thai pre-operative discussions with the patients resulted in them having an entirely different a t t i t u d e toward pain. Fear, said Dumke, seems to cause pain. And when patients novv more about the surgery they face, they are not as apprehensive or afraid. The use of hypnosis to relieve pain also was discussed by the panel. D u m k e believed that it ould be useful in surgical procedures in relieving pain and in some instances removing the pain entirely. ANOTHER PHYSICIAN, Dr. William H. Sweet, associate professor of neurosurgery at Harvard Medical School, said that perhaps too many physicians had been using hypnosis "tongue-in-cheek" to relieve pain. They have apparently not been convinced that hypnotism is a vital panacea in medicine, he said. The conclusions of the panel, however, were that a more rational use of analgesics should be made and t h a t doctors should focus some attention on the individual's emotions and reactions when pain is being treated. Other panelists were Dr. Fred Kern, chief of the division of gastroenterology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, and Dr. Eduardo Eidelberg, also of the Barrow Institute, Phoenix.

The legislation, passed yesterday by voice vote, bears the administration's endorsement and so the President is expected to sign the bills into law. They would: --Grant a 10 per cent increase in monthly dependency payments to 44,900 children and 30,900 parents of veterans who died of service-connected causes. The Veterans Administration has estimated the cost at approximately $5 million for the first year. Rates of payment are geared to the deceased veteran's basic service pay. --Authorize a $47 a month increase in disability payments for service-caused total deafness, bringing the payments to $217 a month for each of an estimated 1,200 veterans. --Authorize an additional $47 a month for service-connected loss of speech, raising the payments to $297 a month. The Veterans Administration says there are only 20 known cases of service- caused total loss of speech. the perfect gift... monteil's traveler AM Accounted For FREDERICKTOWN, Mo.-UPI -- One doctor's patients a d m i t t e d to Madison Memorial Hospital within a one- month period had last names "Hand," "Legg," "Head" and "Fingers." . . . and just in time for Mother's Day, a oncc-a- year opportunity to pamper.
