This wax the situation which aced the Iowa Legislative Budget and Financial Control Commilteo Thursday. Dwight G. Rider of Ft. Dodge, loard president, sent a letter to :he committee Wednesday pointing out that construction of the build- ng will be completed around the first of the year or earlier. ftidor said t h a t if the board does not receive funds, lo buy equip rnent the building cannot be usec immediately, He said the 1051 leg Islaturc made no provision for this part of the project. It thus appears that the hos pital-school building will inevitably stand idle for six to eight months and may stand idle for a year to 18 months," the board presiden said. These estimates were based on the assumption that the boarc would have lo await action by the 1953 legislature before placint equipment orders. The legislative budget group re cclvcd an appropriation of one mil lion dollars a year to meet emer gcncics between sessions.

Safety Chief Raps Selfish Auto Drivers DES MOINES W--Iowa's record of 30 motor vehicle deaths in ~the past seven days brought a statement from the Iowa Safety Council Thursday which called the toll "murder for convenience, done by a few selfish and irresponsible drivers with the help of thousands of indifferent citizens." The statement was issued by Council Chairman Claude V. McBroom of Des Moines who said the 30 dead "are partly the victims of every driver in this state who has never passed a resolution asking that the society investigate certain cancer cure claims which the slate organ! zation had labeled as-"quack." Backed by- the county committee, Mrs. LaFontaine refused either to resign or retract statements made in the resolution to the effect that certain cancer cures claims had been discarded without proper investigation. Refui* to Consider The resolution also impliecUthat the American Medical Association and the American Cancer Society refused to consider any cure claims not coming from a'member o£ the medical profession. Officer's of. the state organization told Mrs. LaFontaine she was discharged as chairman but the Dickinson County committee supported her stand and she stayed on. In a committee meeting this week, the Dickinson County organization reaffirmed its- support of Mrs. LaFontaine's position. State Cancer Society officials said Thursday their position on the status oi Mrs. LaFontaine has not changed. The turned a council statement was hand for safety." said McBroom's the strongest the safety group ever has issued.
