MAY 2, 1963 J BEFORE SENATORS Firearms Control Laws Criticized WASHINGTON -- (/P) -Spokesmen for gun owners and sportsmen took aim today at any firearms control laws which would disarm the millions of law-abiding Americans who own guns. To blaze away indiscriminately with new laws, they said, could ruin a fine industry and deprive 16 million sportsmen of their avocation. Their testimony was heard by a Senate subcommittee on juvenile delinquency. T h e subcommittee, headed by Sen. Thomas J. Dodd, D-Conn., is trying to come up with laws to curb the free sale of mail- order guns to virtually anyone who wants them. "Crimes cannot be controlled by regulating firearms in the hands of law-abiding citizens and . . . you cannot make an unsound law work better by putting teeth in it," said Franklin L. Orth, executive vice president of the National Rifle Association, in prepared testimony. "The crime problem will not be solved," he added, "by denying to reputable people the right to keep and bear arms. Existing laws should be strictly enforced with severe punishment for criminals and hoodlums who use guns for illegal purposes." In the association's view, Orth said, the proper use of firearms in recreation, law enforcement and national preparedness should not be overshadowed or painted by the same black brush that is being wielded by a small minority of individuals . . . "Many reputable firearms dealers . . . could suffer fi- nancial disaster if the tide of public opinion is turned in the direction of all-encompassing legislation." Orth also criticized some courts for soft-pedaling punishment in gun violations. Crimes, he said, are acts of individuals, not firearms. Orth's views were echoed by Howard Carter Jr., a spokesman for the National Shooting Sports Foundation. "It is entirely wrong," Carter said, "to equate the use of firearms with juvenile delinquency in general."

Welfare Director, County Doctor Engage In Dispute By JIM COOPER A disagreement between the Pima County Welfare Department and the county ahysician over the County Hospital's role in treating welfare cases yesterday touched off a battle of personalities marked by a cry of 'whitewash." In opposite corners were Welfare Director Mrs. Florence Albaugh and Dr. George D. Robertson, county physician. Robertson is in charge of county medical care of indigents--persons who cannot pay for their required medical treatment. County patients are either treated at the hospital or in nursing homes, or are placed in shelter care homes. The welfare department is an agency of the state. Its concern, chiefly, is disbursement of funds to indigent persons who cannot earn enough money to survive. These indigents may be healthy or may be in need of medical care. When a welfare indigent is found in need of medical care, a report is sent to the County Hospital. From then on, an entanglement of jurisdiction arises. Ts the county responsible for the medical care of a welfare indigent who is sick? Should medical charges be taken out of the welfare money received by the welfare indigent? Whose responsibility is it to declare a welfare indigent in need of medical care? At particular issue yesterday was a letter written April 3 by Robertson to the Board of Supervisors, for whom Robertson works. The arena was a meeting of the Pima County Welfare Advisory Council, an appointed body of the Board of Supervisors which advises welfare actiivties. It has no legal status as far as operation of the welfare department is concerned. The letter said a determination of the word "indigent" must be made, as applying to medical indigent and welfare indigent. There is a difference, Robertson said. He also said some individuals under welfare care are not true indigents (because they have or can get private funds) and that a closer screening should be made by the welfare department. Welfare patients, he said, are getting a free ride in some cases by being sent to county nursing homes by the welfare department when not eligible for county care. He said that the welfare department sends what it considers medically indigent persons to nursing homes without con- suiting the county physician. There results, he said, a duplication in services and confusion. Although Mrs. Albaugh was not mailed a copy of Robertson's letter, she came across a copy and prepared a defense. This she attempted to give at yesterday's advisory council's meeting. She told t h e c o u n c i l Robertson's charges were inaccurate, untrue and misleading. The welfare department, she said, is controlled by state law and that law is followed to the letter. Immediately, Robertson objected and at times both were talking at the same time. "In all the years I have tvorked with the welfare department," Mrs. Albaugh said, 'everything has gone smooth- y. But this (since Robertson ook over a year and a half ago) has been a continuous struggle." Council member Andrew Martin suggested the departments concerned meet vith the Board of Supervisors o delineate ecich agency's responsibilities and duties, ouncil member Mrs. Herbert . Krucker said that, since Mrs. Albaugh was not an of- cial recipient of the letter, t should not be discussed y Mrs. Albaugh at the meet- g- "I don't think anything should be whitewashed," Mrs. Albaugh said. Council Chairman and Supervisor Pete Rubi denied hat a whitewash was being considered. He suggested, and a vote of he council approved, that VIrs. Albaugh list her objeo :ions to the Robertson letter ind send it to the Board of S u p e r v i s o r s a n d other agencies concerned. Counsel for the board r Robert Hillock, was asked to study statutes and come forward at a later date with a resume of each department's duties and obligations. |||derly made to the Anrtencan taste so good to make Spaghetti and Meat Balls All the /.imily will enjoy ihc familiar flavor and tender lightness of American-style Gold Medal Spaghetti.

Student Sued In UA Court A defeated candidate for student body president at the University of Arizona is suing another campus politician in a student court and asking $1,000 in damages. The suit for slander was given to the student social court, whose existence is not recognized in ordinary legal circles. The plaintiff is Bruce Hempel, one of four candidates in the recent campus election for student body president. The defendant is William Porter, a member of the Student Senate and president of the Young Republicans organization. The charges apparently grow out of comments said to have been made during the recent student elections. None of the principals was available for comment today. The student court can only make recommendations to the school administration asking for action. b TTA A , I e f i a I advi «cr to Hempel, UA law student Gary Peter Klahr, said, "There is nothing that says the court couldn't award damages. It would be up to the administration to enforce them as it requires library funds and other obligations by some such mcaa- """ is withholding gradua- "Mr. Hempel is mainly in- )n nar lib
