FB again becoming a threat Concerted community action tliroughout all of California must be inaugurated if we are to eliminate tuberculosis as a major threat to health, according to Dr. Malcolm H. Merrill, state health director. Until recently, he said, the incidence of tuberculosis was being reduced at a dramatic rale. Three years ago, however, this rapid decline in cases came to an abrupt halt. Reversal of the downward trend of the disease. Dr. Merrill explained, can be attributed to several factors; re sistance to chemotherapy, which previously had made spectacular inroads into the tuberculosis incidence; subsequent community cutbacks in control activities, and loss of professional interest which resulted in too few persons trained to sustain adequate control programs. The director said that between 1953 and 1961 there was a 40 per cent decline in the number of new cases. But for the last three years, the number of cases has remained essentially the same. This is also true of the death rate. In 1963 there were 5,450 newly active cases of tuberculosis, including 1,076 which were reactivated cases. Dr. Merrill said laboratory tests indicate that seven per cent of the newly diagnosed and previously untreated cases of TB are resistant to one or more of the primary treatment drugs. More important, over 60 per cent of the reactivated cases previously treated with drugs now produce drug-resistant organisms. The director declared, "If the nu;r!ber of cases of tuberculosis is to be reduced, control activities must be directed toward those persons in the pop. ulation who need service. We must identify every case of tuberculosis early, before the disease becomes communicable." He continued, "If we are to eradicate tuberculosis we must have accelerated case finding and treatment programs among high risk groups; that is, old cases of tuberculosis, suspects, contacts to known cases, children in schools in geographic areas of lower socio-economic circumstances, jail admissions, nursing homes, recipeients of public welfare benefits." Betois Doily fads Tuesday, May 4,1965-13 Prisoners may get half way' bill SACRAMENTO — Assemblyman Joseph Kennick (D-Long Beach) has yet to seek a hearing for his bill to provide "half way houses" for California prisoners. The "half-way house" concept is not new to Cahfornia or to American prison systems. It has generally been used in the past, however, for prisoners already paroled to enable them a gradual means of returning to society. The concept of the Community Correctional Centers as envisoned in Kennick's AB1972 is that of rehabilitaion for criminals not yet eligible for parole. The prisoner would be sent to the Center or "half-way house" anytime the parole board decided. The director of the Center would then be authorized to grant the prisoner the right to short "furloughs" in order to apply for work, visit his or her family or simply to reorientate them to society. The prisoner would live at the Center, report to his counselor regularly and would be governed by the same rules and regulations of prison life in most instances. For example, it would be a crime to leave the Center without permission and would be the equivalant of an escape from a penal institution. Other regu- tSAlY MONTH AT ...our WEEK LOHG STUPENDOUS SALE!

Purpose of llie Center is !o give the prisoner an opportunity to fit back into society smoothly and to find ouil ?;3 which keep him from the clement which caused his arrest and imprisonment initially. With few exceptions, felons in California today are put to work on prison jobs for the major part of their term then paroled or released with little control other than the occasional visit to the parole officer. Too many times the parole officer is not in a position to help the former convict when he is most needed. When the first shock of a job loss, major financial crisis or personal problem hits the ex-convict he is often caught now with no one to turn to. In many cases the emotional flaw which led him into trouble with the law takes over again and the net result is a "two time loser." With each succeeding "loss" the man or woman becomes more and more of a risk for rehabilitaiion. Kennick's bill, backed by the State Dept. of Corrections, seeks to establish a system of Correctional Centers or "half-way houses" which would help the ex-convict over these spots and keep him or her on the path to responsible solution of problems. By using the furlough system to get the convict used to society once more, the Dept. of Corrections is also able to see how the subject reacts towards rehabilitation. Correction personnel point out that the cost of keeping a person in such Centers until they are rehabilitated is only a fraction of the cost of keeping a prisoner in one of the state prisons for life. Teen-age GOP invited to tour liistorica! spots California teen-age Republicans were invited this week by the Republican State Central Committee to "bone-up" on their American history as preparation for the first Republican Heritage Youth Tour from June 21 to June 30. Dr. Gaylord B. Parkinson, Chairman of the RepubUcan State Central Committee, said that the first 1 .000 information folders on the Heritage Tour are being mailed today to members and associate members of the Republican State Central Committee. "These folders w^ill be given to TARS (Teen-Age Republicans) who have a sincere desire to see at first hand, the great story of the American Republic, and the richness of the legacy given them by the Republican Party," said Parkinson. "United and American A i r Lines .jet coaches will pick up our tourists in San Diego, Los Angeles and San Francisco on June 1. The Tour itself has been planned by American historians, youth counselors and a board o£ travel experts headed by Rev. John K. Sorensen of San Diego, Youth Activities Counselor of the Republican State Central Committee. "We call this Tour 'Ten Days with a Thousand Moments to Remember'. Starting in Philadelphia, the heartland of American independence, a few of the highlights are: a visit to Gettysburg where Republican President Lincoln delivered his historic address; the White House, a visit with the Republican California Congressional delegation, tours of Capitol Hill, and a visit to the Supreme Court." Parkinson said. The Youth Tour also encompasses sightseeing at Mount Vernon, home of George Washington; at Annapolis, scene of the United States Navy Academy; at Williamsburg's Duke of Gloucester Street, "The most historic avenue in all the Americas;" Jamestown, first Puritan settlement in America, and Charlottesville, locale of the homes of Thomas Jefferson (Monticello) and James Monroe (Ash Lawn.) "The complete price of this tour is slightly more than S400 for each teenager," said Parkinson. That includes their jet round-trip plane fare, chartered bus service, lodging, sightseeing, baggage handling, breakfasts, dinners and guides. One senior Party member will accompany each ten teen-age travellers," he said. Space Fair to be held in S.B. Scientific achievements in space will be highlighted May 5 through 9 during the Space Fair in downtown San Bernardino. Sponsored by the San Bernardino Chamber of Commerce, the Fair will be open from noon to 10 p.m. everyday and from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday. It is being held at the Central Auto Park, on 5th street between E and F streets.
