(ARKJ COURIER M5WI FRIDAY, APRIL », 1M4 Southwest's Primary Trouble Is Drought By 8AM DAWSON PHOEMX, Ark. (AP) — Drought — not "inventory recession" — is the prime troublemaker for business today in mww secteoae between Arizona and the Mississippi and even Educator Says Doctors Need 'Human' Study CHICAGO <>P)—Most college boys acreages of parched eartl fer-eaten to pare a sizable slice Jirom the nation's grain and mea ouppHor and from the incomes o fefmefs and ranchers and from the prosperity of the towns and cities wrrv-icing them. •But weather miracles can hap pea. Aad here's one. mtno&s from a freak storm like of which hasn't been seen ctece 1906, the weather bureau »ays—are reviving cattle water boles, ranges and prospects, pouring tons of water into depleted iKpigation . reservoirs and helping replenish groundwater levels in weMs tfaave have been falling fast • for five years. It is also reviving business sentiment here more noticeably than have any of the counter-recession measures taken in the Eastern financial and governmental centers. In the Southwest, rain is more potent than Wall street and as much so as Washington. Other states haven't been so lucky yet. Scattered rains have helped some. And in Missouri and eastern Kansas they hope that the April showers will come along on schedule to save the wheat crop. But some towns in that area are shipping in their drinking water in tank cars, while trying o»t rainmaking schemes. TCfee toH of drought elsewhere in the nation is high. In parts of the Southeastern states winter preci- beve pwbhc hearings on that. We have completed our preliminary investigations, haven't we? Coho—Yes, senator. McCarthy—We have a sizable number of cases involving what appears to be favoritism, unusual settlements in tax cases under the previous administration. There is a vast amount of work that should be do»e. I think it is ridiculous to hoid up all that work while we are waiting for the staff to be formed on this new subcommittee of which I appointed Carl Mundt the chair- mam. • • • I woul3 have no objection at all to giving priority to any hearing on fee Adams-Conn case if the senators want that; in other words, if they want to hold a hearing on a certain date certainly we shouldn't interfere with them on that by other hearings. But when they .are not holding hearings, there is no reason why we shouldn't proceed with our work. Q—One last question of a general nature: What do you regard as your greatest accomplishment in the work you have done since you came to the Senate, particularly in this field of trying to find Communists? McCarthy—I wouldn't try to answer that. It is a going fight— you can't measure your accomplishments in the number of Communist heads that have fallen. It's impossible to try and put your finger on any one thing that we may have accomplished which is most important. Besides. I would be the worst judge of that.

RHTDCMr SINUS? pitation was below normal, after scattered droughts there had hurt crops and livestock last summer and depressed store sales in some places. Livestock men in parts of Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Kansas and Colorado are hard hit by the dry cycle. Texans this week are discussing plans for distribution of surplus food from federal stores among the needy, whose livelihood shrank for lack of water. From parts of southern Iowa hit j by drought last summer come reports that livestock is being sold by feeders who don't want to pay the government loan price for corn from more favored counties to fatten their stock. Federal agencies report that in parts of the western Great Plains wheat is in a "precarious condition" due to the "combined effects of drought, wind erosion and low temperatures" and in some sections from heavy deposits of silt from dust storms. In the Southwest, where dry and wet cycles have often followed each other in roughly set patterns, many old-timers are fearful that the dry years have yet to run their course. That's why "the great storm" iaere, which poured as much as 10 inches of rain on some watersheds, amazed and delighted Arizonans, especially as it came late, at a time when the long, dry spell usually is starting.

Youngsters presenting themselves for candidacy to our medical schools show a monotonous and unvarying stereotype of training involving prescribed units of scientific subjects . . ." He said that because of the "difficulty" of entrance into medical schools, the youngster preparing for such a school "plays it safe and does not monkey around with cultural courses that the medical school admission committees do not pay any attention to anyway." But he added: "The typical premedical curriculum runs a serious risk of educating out nf the student the creativity, the critical appreciation, the ability to think, which are so necessary a part of leadership. Pre- medics even begin to look and speak alike." The French gave natives little or rto part in governing I themselves. Frenchmen held all offices, even minor ones. This embittered the more intelligent natives, who were] unable to realize their potential abilities. Native resentment, long smoldering, broke out in flaming revolt in 1930. The Great Depression had hit Indo-China. Thousands were starving. Peasants were desperate. The uprising was quickly suppressed, but its embers ignited a nationalist movement whose growing force led to today's crisis. More important, the embers also sparked the formation of the Indo-Chinese Communist Party. NEW YORK </P)-Former President Truman will be honored at a dinner here May 8, his 70th birthday.
