(/Pi— Scientist here have been counting the} fleas mi squirrels. They announced j tortay that. DDT has lost, its leadership ns a potent flea killer. Fleas are well knmvu carriers of j plaque and other deadly dlscascB. i The Army IK anxious tn find a pow| crful insecticide that will efficiently ' destroy them. The College of Medical Evantic- [ lists' i School of Tropical and Pre- venl.ive Medicine has been conduct- ins (he project. Raymond Kyckman, Itead of the department of entomology, has issued a report, showing that, three, new insecticides are many times more effective than DDT In destroying disease-carry ing fleas nnd other insects. Their names are dieldrin, aldrin j and heptachlor. j The study bepan with sight in- j sraicides. pour were eliminated ear| ly in the project, leaving the three lieu- ones and DDT. j The ordinary California ground .squirrel, said Ryrkman, ifi usually I about as flen-infe.sled an nnima! as exists. So the research trchnlcinns fenced 22 acres of field land and divided it into numbered control areas. FirM (hpy cnucht squirrels and PAGE FIVE checked the normal flea Infestation of a representative number. The squirrels then werr, released and tha various areas were dusted with sep- ni'iUe insedlddes. Gevrnty-two hours Inter researchers started catching squirrels again and made a fresh flea count- And they found (hat, alter dusting with hf»pt itch lor, aldrin or dieldrin, the average had dropped from 111.2 fleas per ?r)Uirrel to less than 1 flea per squirrel. All three of the new insecticides wore thus more ihan 99 per cent effrcUve.. On a comparative basis, DDT wns only 58.35 per cent effective over the same period of time. How do you count, fleas on a squirrel? The best way. says Ryckman, is tn put the squirrel to sleep with a smftU rio^e of nembutal Then a vacuum process, applying a mild suction the skin, pulls off mnst of the flea?.

Let'sFacelr,U.S.IsUproHereinDebt By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK I/PI—The brittle over raising the federal debt limit dramatizes today the growih of all forms of debt in recent years. Never have so many Americans owed 60 much. Private debt has doubled in the last six years. The federal debt today is 9'i billion dollars higher than B year ago. All are agreed it will climb higher before the year is over, no matter what the Congress decides about lifting the legal limit on it as this time. State and municipal governments last year issued a record four billion dollars worth of new securities. In the first half of this year they were going into debt at an even faster clip. In the last seven years state and local government indebtedness doubled. The total now tops 21 billion dollars. Corporations owed about, 85 billion dollars when World War II ended. Fast plant expansion mid money inflation has boosted that debt to around 200 billion dollars. And More Vet The debts owed by individuals and | unincorporated businesses are now estimated to total around 150 bil- ; lion dollars. Consumer credit, (one easily visible form of individual debt) has' swelled to just under 27 billion dollars, with buying on the cuff—in-; stallment credit — accounting for more than 20 billion dollars of it. j Mortgage lenders estimate that I about 10 million single family homes carry mortgages, sustained by the earning capacity of individuals. j This huge debt total of government, business and individuals is; being carried neatly at the moment by the wave of prosperity, still un-, broken. ' It is into this picture of tolal debt that the controversy over lining the, federal debt limit is thrust. By a| 1946 law the U. S. Treasury can't, go into debt for more than 275 billion dollars. Its current indebtedness is more than 212'4 billion dollars. This is climbinK-in this month,, I the first of its new fiscal year, Treasury collections fell about two. billion dollars below its receipts. It has a cash balance of a litle less . than nine billion dollars. Some argue that the Treasury could stay within the debt limit the rest of this year if it would borrow the 2'i billion more than the law allows and let its cash drop to three billion dollars. Unsafe Treasury Secretary Humphrey, however, says it isn't safe for the Treasury to have less than six billion dollars in its Jeans at, any one time. Too many unexpected things could happen. For example, the Treasury is very happy that recently sales of savings bonds have been larger than rt.- dempions. It wants people to buy these bonds, more of them, in fact. But they ore a part of the federal debt. Any sudden spurt in bond buying or big drop in bond redemptions in December could conceivably push (he debt over the limit, if it were already bumping the ceiling at that time. Or. any rush to redeem savings bonds might embarrass the Treasury if It were letting its cash run low. The chief argument against rais- j ing the debt limit is the charge it! would "encourage extravagance." The chief argument against raising the debt limit is the charge it would "encourage extravagance." Opponents of lifting the ceiling argue that if Congress refuses to tlo so it would give the already economy-minded administration all the more incentive to seek new ways of eliminating waste. And they argue that the Korean truce also may afford a safe breather in the defense spending program.
