1* Tuesday, MarcK 15, 1966 LACK OF MEDICAL CARE SHOWS ON CHILDREN NEW YORK (AP) — "It's simply shocking." said a pediatrician in a large Eastern city. "You wonder if some w&y can't be found to give these kids a better medical break." "These kids" were 1,442 youngsters, mostly from poor familes, enrolled in a Head Start program to prepare them better for entering school. One-third of them, medical examiners found, had some major medical defect, or emotional problem — or both. That is one measure of the health needs, mostly unmet, among minions of poor people in big cities and many rural areas, needs unmet despite hospital clinics and physcian's donated time. Various reasons are suggested for the neglect. That people don't know facilities exist; that there aren't enough facilities, that some people can't find baby-sitters or; take time from their jobs, that clinics and services are too fragmented and patient are shunted from place to place, thai many have no medical or hospi tal insurance systems. Th< charge is even made that "many poor people just dont! care." But when, and if, the sluice gates open to meet their needs, the nation's medical system will be challenged more than ever. Medicare will bring part of this new testing, since nuiny elderly persons living on limited incomes will be offered hospitalization under Social Security payments. They may also sign up, at low fees, for medical services. Looking to July 1, when medi care begins, hospitals in some cities expect a heavy demand for beds and services. Others anticipate only a slight increase, mainly because many beds already are occupied by patients over 65. More demand for tnedical services will come. For Title XDC of the medicare law calls upon states vastly to expand their programs of health care for all the needy and medically needy in each state, by July 1975, if they are to continue receiving federal money. Poor health is one root, one anchor, in a vicious cycle ot poverty — "wunout intervention, the poor gets sicker and the sick get poorer," says Dr. H. Jack Geiger of Tufts University Med-| ical School in Boston. ] He and Dr. Count D. Gibson Jr., professor of preventivej medicine at Tufts, are originators of a ncvel approach to improve the health of the poor—a program containing seeds for increasing health manpower jobs among the poor themselves. Sponsored by the medical school, with an initial grant of $1.168,000 in poverty program funds, the program is setting up two community health centers, one in Boston, another to come in a rural Southern area. The Boston center, at the Columbia Point housing development, is operating. In its first four weeks, 600 children and adults in the housing development canne for diagnosis and treatment. Tufts supplies the small staff of physicians on duty at the heath center. The doctors may refer some patients to city hospitals or to specialists, as needed. This health program is one pilot attempt—aided by a computerized system of keeping records—to determine the real need for health services, what they cost in time, services and' money to meet them. Dr. Geig-i explains. It may point the way to similar centers in other! areas. There are 6,000 families in the; xmsing project, and one-third of hem enrolled m a voluntary health association which helped plan the health center itself. But anyone in the housing project can utilize the health center. No one is charged for visits. Prevention of illness Is emphasized. The association members FAMOUS BRAND SHOES Trades Day Yaiue!

ALU SALES FINAL Homeowners May Want A Larger Kitchen Plan Home owners are getting ready to launch their own space program — and the favored site is the kitchen. A recent survey conducted for the National Home Improvement Council reveals that the kitchen is the center of attraction for most families planning home improvements. It's the room they would most like to do something about — and "more space" is at the head of the most - wanted list NEED APPLIANCES While the survey brings out the need for more electrical outlets, better lighting, new sinks and new floor coverings, greater priority goes to improvements aimed at providing more cabinet and counter space, more space for better working arrangements and more space for built-ins, more space for eating, more space for activities such as kitchen deskwork and ironing. Whether the kitchen space program calls for an all - out, allover remodeling job or step-by- step changes within the framework of the existing floor plan, major appliances ar e likely to play a large part in the modernization. Logically, kitchen remodeling time is an appropriate time to make needed replacements ol major appliances — and to take advantage of some of the new developments in these appliances. Even though appliances are not outworn, they may be outdated. New developments include, for : p a c e - eager home owners, space - saving designs. SAVE SPACE Refrigerator - freezers, now frost - free for "no defrosting ever" convenience, provide increased food storage capacity yet take up less floor space. Ranges, along with self-cleaning features and more automatic cooking controls, offer flexibility in design aimed at solving space problems. CLEAN UP WITH SALE decided that families should pay $3 a year in membership dues, partly to help equip the center. "We asked why S3 was decided upon and someone said: 'Because that's the cost of just one taxi-ride in the middle of the night to a hospital emergency room that we won't have to make when a health center is right here.' " Whatever the outcome of this particular program, the future promises many other changes in medicine. Rocketry Notes 40th Aniversary NEW YORK (AP) — Just 40, years ago Dr. Robert H. God- Jard launched th e world's first liquid-fueled rocket — and showed mankind the way to interplanetary space. The flimsy little forerunner of he huge rocket systems of the L960s leaped upward from a 3eld near Auburn, Mass., March 16, 1926, in a flight lasting only 2*4 seconds. It reached an altitude of 41 'eet and landed 184 feet away jom its primitive launching •ad in a jumble of twisted and broken tubing. Unnoticed by the world at large, a frail, 43-year-old professor of physics at Clark University, Worcester, Mass., had ushered in the space age. Recalling the pioneer flight in a commemorative stamp ceremony at dark in 1964, John A. Gronouski, then postmaster ;eneral, said: "The Wright brothers reduced the size of the world; Dr. Goddard reduced the size of the universe." Pre-Goddard rockets were inefficiently propelled by gunpowder and other dry explosives with an uncontrollable burning rate and brief period of thrust. Dr. Goddard had concluded that liquid fuel would give far better Jesuits. In July, 1914, he had obtained U.S. Patent No. 1,103,503 on a rocket design emtodying all the basic features of the giants built today, including the concept of multiple stages. He had been experimenting with rockets for 18 years — and was recognized world expert in the field — when he was finally ready to demonstrate that liquid fuel would work. Dr. Goddard's prototype, put together in a Clark University workshop, consisted of a two- foot motor linked by fragile tubing to a pair of 2%-foot tanks. One tank contained liquid oxygen, the other gasoline. Empty of fuel, the rocket assembly weighed less than five pounds. Mounted in a makeshift metal frame which looked like part of a modem piece of playground equipment, the whole thing stood only 10 feet tall. The launching site was a field on Miss Effie Ward's farm. She was a distant relative of Dr. Goddard and he called her "Aunt Effie." With Dr. Goddard were his machinist helper Heniy Sachs, Dr. PJV1. Roope, assistant professor of physics at Clark, and Mrs. Goddard. She carried a movie camera. At 2:30 p.m. Dr. Goddard primed the rocket and touched it off. There was a sharp pop as the fuel ignited.
