A report, a 99-page document of recommendations and conclusions by the federal agency, was jrcsentcd at a press conference ·"riday attended by McNichols, his director of institutions, Dr James Galvin, and members of their staffs. Frankly calling Colorado's progress in mental health in the past corrupt officials abroad, instead of being used to overtones, strengthen a people's economy and its will to be free These things are a matter of record. Charges of this kind have played a major role in the growing reluctance of Congress to appropriate the billions needed to carry on an adequate program of foreign aid. Such charges have been bolstered by persuasive contentions that our aid program lacks a clear, specific sense of said his program was based on the recruitment of top people for top jobs, eliminating all political purpose. All this points to the need for a thoroughgoing review of our aid program. This is precisely what President Kennedy has r.ow ordered--a "hard new look" at the activities of the Agency for International Development, with particular attention to whether those activi ies contribute materially to national security. The sternest critics of foreign aid could not ask for more. If, that is, the review is carried out in the spirit of tough examination implied by Mr. Kennedy's phrase The value of the study will be determined by the extent to which Gen. Lucius Clay and his committee hew tp this line. In an obvious reference to the incoming Republican administra tion of Gov.-elcct John A. Love McNichols said: "If this program is crimped in, cut back and al lowed to become involved in po litics, our recruiting of qualiliei people will be fantastically inhibit ed and we'll lose the people wi now have. "If this happens, there will be 'antastic waste -- millions of do lari -- and the people of Colo rado will be right back where w darted." Already, as a result of las month's election and change state administration, Dr. Galvi said the mental health recruitin program has come to a halt. "No one is Interested in com ng in now until they find out his will become I political si uation." he said. The survey by Ihe Public Heal Service team, requested last sum mer should substantial programs along the lines. recommended the 1950 report. The report beg: "In the short span of four year the State of Colorado, refusing rest on tradilion, has moved ve rapidly toward improved care ai treatment of its mentally ill c what clearly needs to be done to expand and strengthen jzens. On the institutional lev Those who recognize the central importance of foreign aid in our efforts to foster economic and political stability in the free world need not fear the outcome of this review. The men chosen to conduct it are of top caliber, and their study promises to be shrewd but fair. The chances are that the foreign aid program wil emerge from their hands a better instrument for doing freedom.

He began with gracious words of thanks to the French government for having agreed to send Leonardo da Vinci's "Mona Lisa" to this country for exhibition at the Nationa Gallery in Washington. The importance of this should not be overlooked in the hurly burly of world affairs. For as Mr. Kennedy pointed out, this loan of a great masterpiece betokens 2. The department "should clear Logan.

Nowhere in the report, or in a summary prepared by Dr. Galvin was there a reference to sensa tional charges brought last May Leasing Operators Looking Forwa rd To Good Yea r in '63 lasis.

Some half dozen leasing corpo rations that operate on a nationa asis have grown to 'he point where they now can obtain funds in the money market at lower By SAM DAWSON AP Buiinejs News Analyst NEW YORK (AP)-The stock market break and the profit squeeze were among the things this year lhat boosted the trend toward leasing rather than owning production and office equipment. And the new deprecialion rules and the more optimistic business feeling should further growth in 1963. That's the view ol leaders in the leasing business, as you might expect, when Ihcy assess Ihe changes in their rapidly growing form of financing. One change if the lengthening ol the term o leases and another is lower rates in many instances. Leasing is done cither by the manufactureis themselves who for oln(;r financing of new equip- of the State Hospital. Amongother things, in its 30 page report the grand jury charged lexusl immorality, pa tient pregnancies, co-mingling drinking by at least one docto while on duty, escapes and con usion and unrest in the patien wards. Al the Friday press conference Gov. McNichols again dismisse .he grand jury's report as he has Before. Angrily and Impatiently h said: "They never have documen ed or substantiated a single on of those charges." On another issue that ha brought criticism to McNichol that involving delays in a mult million-dollar building program the Colorado State Hospital, th Public Health Service report sai "The decision to hold the bull ing program in abeyance iur t jast few years and not add interest^ than when Oiey started the (State) Hospital's patient c pacity has been a wise one." is small concerns. This has allowed them to bring lease rales down, an important sales point in tho increasingly competitive world of finance. "The profit squeeze in nwr.y in dustrics is helping cur bubinets,' says Robert Sheridan, presiden of Nationwide leasing Company, Chicago, "because it cuts the cash flow and increases the need , amc time he has managed to fill is book with a hearty debate ver the ethics of having scien. sts devote themselves to weap- ns of destruction, the arguments f pacificism, the moral issue of individual life versus mass urvival. His novel is right in line with he works of olher English writ- rs -- such as author-scientist -. P. Snow -- who have been ha ng a great flap over the amorally of science and the widening ;ap between the scienlisls mi .he men devoted to Ihe ethica! TOW. Inevitably, this book will be compared with "Fail-Safe." the novel by Americans Eugene Bur dick and Harvey Wheeler abou a mechanical failure in the push butlon balance of terror, which sets off a nuclear holocaust. Brinton's novel has a lot more meat lor the reflective mind than anyone will find in II may not be a great novel, bill it poses more cogent questions than Burdick and Wheeler have been able to suggest. Miles A. Smilh rent out their products rather than sell them, or by oulsidc firms specializing in this form o! financing. They estimate that American companies this year leased $900 million of production and office equipment, for a ?.»in o( 25 per cent over 1961.
