BLTI'HBVILLB (ARK.)' COURIER WBWf WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 8,19M Pemiscot Seeks i• I I SM* • Aid tor Clinic $75,000 Federal Grant Sought for Health Center By H. L. YEAGER CARUTHERSVILLE — Formal application for a $75,000 Federal grant to build a Pemiscot County health center has been made, it was announced at a. mot-ting of the Pemiscot County Board of Health. The Federal funds must be matched by a similar sum derived from taxes or other sources in the comity, Exhibited at the meeting were architect drawings and floor plans of the proposed new building, with forty-four rooms. The building, 106 feet wide, will have 5,015 feet of floor space. The [ site required will be a minimum 200 feet front and depth of 100 feet, \VhiIe the county board will first view and perhaps have some influence in deciding the most favorable location, the final decision will be made by the State Board of Health. The State Board of Health has cooperated in the designs and plans to the extent that there should be. no interruption of progress or delay j May when the exact amount to be spent' is decided upon. The County Board will not be required to use all the grant, and the grant, larger than anticipated needs, was suggested rather than a minimum sum. The Federal funds, coming through the Missouri State Department of Health, might be made available in March providing balances in such fund and appropriations will allow, otherwise, it is anticipated in June, according to statements made by W. W. Chism, of Hayti, chairman of the Pemiscot County Board. Four towns in the county would like to have the center, Caruthersville, Steele, Hayti and Wartiell. Representatives of these towns were asked to put their proposals in writing. The representatives attending in behalf of securing the location of the health center in their area, following a lead, asked regarding the requirements and stated their proposals would be made after consulting with sponsoring organizations. Recognizing other than statements made by members and officials of the department, it is conceded that Hayti and Caruthers- vilje, being more centrally located, have an advantage over Steele and "Wardell, south and north outlying areas, in being favored for the center's location. Each town is expected to offer attractive proposals, and if a central location is favored, there will be competition between Hayti and Caruthersville. The county hospital is located at Hayti. Ralph F. Oberlechner, construction consultant, with the architect firm of J. F- Lauck Associates, Architect's drawing of proposed health center. Kansas City, was expected at the meeting. However, a snowstorm northward delayed-his arrival and he was to arrive later that night or Tuesday morning by plane via Memphis. It was expected that he would be in the area a day or more after arrival and be able to discuss sites offered. * Annual Report The Pemiscot County Health Service was organized in 1925, and reorganized in January, 1955, for a more intense and expanded service.

As for the 1952 McCarran-Walter Act, the President urged Congress to made a thorough study and come up with its own decision "as to what new system should be established." But he said interim action is needed quickly "to alleviate as much as possible inequities in the present quota system" of admitting aliens. Eisenhower recommended the quota program be based on the 1950 census, Bather than on the 1920 census as at present, and that ;he over-all quota be increased to approxlmaetly 220,000 from the present 154.657.

IKE (Continued from Page 1) drafting the chief justice as a presidential nominee if Eisenhower does not run again. Asked if his youngest brother, Dr. Milton S. Eisenhower, has any ambition to run for President, Eisenhower smiled broadly, and said that's something he has no information about. The news conference dealt with these other matters: GUIDED MJSSILES— the United States has given priority to the production of guided missiles. Eisenhower said that in certain fields of missile production the United States s ahead of Russia, while in other fields the Soviet Union probably has outdistanced this country. But he said that from the standpoint of the over-all picture, the United States is doing all it possibly can to maintain a strong posture in the missile field. Eisenhower's remarks were In response to questions about statements by Sens. Jackson (D-Wash) and Symington (IVMo) that Russia is ahead of this country in development of intercontinental ballistic missiles. Asked specifically for comment on Symington's statement last Sunday that Russia has fired an intercontinental missile hundreds of miles further" than anything the United States has tested, the President replied that he has habitually refrained from talking about such matters. ARAB-ISRAEL — Eisenhower pledged that he will continue to do everything he can to prevent hostilities between Israel and the Arab states.
