MONDAY, AUGUST 2, 1965. IRONWOOD DAIIY GLOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN FIVE County Health Department Is Required Here LANSING — Gogebic County Is one of 12 counties in the state that is affected by a long sought amendment to legislative act requirng counties to establish health departments for public protection. The Michigan Department of Health, backer of the bill, realize its goal after the bill was signed by Governor Romney on July 21. The bill took immediate effect. At present, 71 counties are served by local health dep a r t- ments, either singly, in pairs, or combinations of three, four, or five counties. The 12 counties affected by the new law are Gogebic, Marquette, Luce, and Mackinac in the Upper Peninsula; Huron, Tuscola, and Lapeer in the Thumb area; and Jackson, Montcalm, Ionia, Clinton, and Gratiot in the Central part of the state. The combined population of these counties is nearly'a half-million. There are presently 22 county health departments, seven two- county health departments, five three-county health departments, and five four-county health departments. In addition, the cities of Detroit, Jackson, and Saginaw have full-time independent health departments. Detroit City and Wayne County jointly employ a medical health officer. Several other cities provide health services but are not headed by a full-time health director and are not recognized by the Michigan Department of Health as local health departments. Along with the require m e n t that counties provide pub 1 i c health services either by establishing a health department or joining with another county or group of counties, the new law increases the amount of state financial aid from $5,000 per county to a minimum of $7,000. Although most counties will receive only a $2,000 boost, some of the more populus counties will receive substantial increases. In the past, Keweenaw County, with a population of a 2,500 received $5,000 a year in state assistance as part of the four- county Copper Country District Health Department, along with Houghton, Baraga, and Ontonagon Counties. Wayne County, with a population of more than a million, excluding the City of Detroit, also received $5,000. Now, Keweenaw will receive $7,000 a year for being a part of a four- county unit; and Wayne County will get approximately $122,645. "As a result of this legislation, Michigan will bee o m e one of the very few states in the country with 100 per cent coverage by local health departments, said State Health Commissioner Dr. Albeit E. Heustis. The commissioner commended the lawmakers for their action in both making local health departments mandatory, and increasing the state's share of financing the cost of providing public health services on the lo- Mediation Board, Philip Weiss of Detroit, said a new division, the labor relations section, is being formed to handle all matters relating to labor-management relations. He said all petitions from union regarding representation elections will be handled as they are submitted, and elections will be held as quickly and efflci- ciently as possible. Elms Are Killed By Tiny Insect LANSING (AP) — It will be a long war, and the injury and death rate is climbing. This Is the war against inroads by a tiny insect against Michigan's stately elms. C A. Boyer, head of the plant industry division of the State Agriculture Department, estimates that between one and one half per cent of the mature elms are lost each year in cities that carry or. control programs The attrition rate is 10 to 20 in cities that don't such programs, he per cent carry on said. Boyer said the war against the European bark beetle still is worth waging. "There is no species of tree that isn't bothered by some disease or insect," he said. "Some of our elms took up to 100 years to grow." Elms make up about 65 per cent of the shade trees in Michigan cities. Many cities still plant elms instead of other species and carry on the valiant fight to save them. Boyer said Dutch elm disease might be more evident than most years in Michigan this 3 Fishermen Are Rescued DETROIT (AP) — One Of three fishermen who spent lOVa hours Saturday night clinging to their capsized boat in the Detroit River, says the boat went "straight down" after it was hit Congress Hopes to Send Vdtihg Rights Bill to LBJ This Week by sudden high waves. Travis French, owner of the 15-foot outboard, said Sunday he and two relatives, Cecil Nance, 61, of suburban Redford, and James Brewer, 21, of Paris, Tenn., were fishing when they were hit. "We had turned back, and the water got kind of rough, but there wasn't much wind," Travis, 39, of suburban Lincoln Park, said. "Suddenly, this one huge CONSTRUCTION BEGINS—Construction is underway on Northern Natural Gas Company's pipeline that will bring gas to northern Wisconsin and Michigan's Upper Peninsula.

"With this added impetus, Michigan will be able to make increased headway against such long-standing public health problems as communicable diseases, waste disposal, and food sanitation, in addition to exerting more effective control over more recent emerging problems including accidents, alchololism, chronic illness, and air and water pollution." Unions to Open Member Drives DETROIT (AP) — With some 250,000 public employes now allowed to join unions and bargain collectively, at least six labor unions are expected to launch membership drives in Michigan. Police officers, firemen, em- ployes of road commissions, sanitation workers and other persons employed by city and county governments are eligible to join unions under laws signed by Gov. George Romney July 23 State civil service employes and elected officials still are prohibited from joining labor organizations. Labor officials said the Teamsters union will concentrate at the start on recuiting personnel such as drivers and other em- ployes of county roa.d commissions, but will also take applica- other public em- summer because of the drought Drought weakens the trees and makes them more suscep tlble to the infection. Elms also die from other causes, such as lack of fertilizer and water The fight against the disease is carried on voluntarily by the cities and municipalities in cooperation with the agriculture department. Virtually no work is done in rural areas, he said, except by the state conservation and highway departments in some parks and recreation areas. The key to saving the mature trees is removing and burning the diseased ones. Every added day a diseased tree stands it constitutes a growing manace to healthy trees, he explained. This accounts for the striking difference in tree deaths between those cities that have efficient disease control programs and those that don't bother. Boyer listed Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo and Battle Creek as among the major cities without a Dut"h elm disease program that are losing their elms at a rapid rate. He listed as among the cities with "excellent" control programs, Detroit, Lansing, Flint, Monroe, Pontiac, Birmingham, Oak Park, Royal Oak and most of the suburban areas around Detroit In a normal year, Boyer said, some 15,000 trees are removed in cities with control programs. Many thousands more die, of course, in rural areas and cities without programs. The Dutch elm disease first invaded Michigan from eastern states in 1950. It originally was discovered in this country in Massachusetts, where the European bark beetle entered the country concealed in a shipment of elm logs. Boyer emphasized that there is no cure for the disease, although major chemical companies and independent operators have been workong on formulas and some are selling so- called "cures" and "arresters."

WASHINGTON (AP) - Con- ;ress expects to send to Presi- ,ent Johnson this week the^vot- ng rights bill he urgently re- uested last March. And the controversy over tate legislative reapportionment that erupted after the one- man, one-vote ruling by the Supreme Court may reach a showdown in the Senate. Also in the Senate, the Judiciary Committee has set a hear- ng for Thursday on Johnson's nomination of his friend and adviser. Abe Fortas, to succeed Arthur J. Goldberg on the Supreme Court. The House Judiciary Committee is expected to act Tuesday on an administration bill to abolish the national origins quota system of immigration. And with congressional hopes still pinned on adjournment around Labor Day, the Senate *abor Committee may complete work on a House-passed bill to double the funds available for the second year of the antipoverty program. The voting-rights bill was whipped into final form by Senate-House conference committee last Thursday and will be taken up in the House Tuesday Senate action may follow later in the day, although Southern foes could throw up a tempo rary roadblock if they renew their denunciations of it as an unconstitutional invasion of the rights of the states to determine the qualification of voters. The bill is designed to enforce the 15th Amendment's ban on denial of voting rights because of race or color. In the states affected by the measure's automatic coverage formula, literacy tests and similar voter quall- ication requirements would be suspended. The reapportionment battle centers on a constitutional amendment proposed by Senate GOP Leader Everett M. Dirksen of Illinois to get around the Supreme Court's decision that both houses of state legislatures must be apportioned on the basis of population. Dirksen's amendment would permit geography and political sub-divisions to be taken into account, in addition to population, in apportioning one house if the people approved in a referendum. Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield of Montana and Dirksen announced last week that at today's session they would seek an agreement for a showdown vote Wednesday. Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara plans to go before the Senate Appropriations and Armed Services Committees Wednesday to report on additional funds that will be asked for expanded military operations in Viet Nam. Congressional action was completed last week on the bill boosting Social Security benefits and establishing, a health-care program for the elderly and also on a $7.5-billion housing bill that includes rent subsidies lor low-income families.
