When Doctor Makes His Rounds He Has to Cover Parts of 9 States By MARY KAY FLYNN NEA Staff Correspondent RICHARDS-GEBAUR AFB, Mo. —(NEA) — As a modern counterpart of the horse and buggy doctor, a personable 27-ycar-old Air Force surgeon has attained the new rank of "genuine Arkansas Traveler." Capt. James C. Walker's practice area Includes some of Arkansas, where he was born and educated, and all or parts of eight nearby states. "Fortunately," Walker says with a grin, "I always wanted a large practice." Though the horsepower of modes of travel used by the 20th Air Division's doctor has increased dramatically over old dobbin's, regular visits to the 20th's widely scattered units take about three weeks of his time every month with a year required to make the entire circuit. He drives an average of 1,000 miles weekly by automobile. / The extended surface travel means experiencing some of the rigors of the old-lime general practitioner's day at a time when supersonic fighter interceptors are ARKANSAS TRAVELER: Air Force Capt. Jumcs Walker prepares for takeoff in small plane he uses to cover "practice." used by the 20th which is headquartered here. But the young officer is a qualified pilot and does use a twin- engine Cessna or helicopter occasionally. In addition to giving consultation on medical, dental, preventive medicine and veterinary services matters, Capt. Walker also supervises the administration of the division's medical treatment facilities. When not making the rounds with his black bag or busy at desk work, he stays at a cottage he rented at a lake near here. The resourceful country doctor had nothing on this blond bachelor. He insists he is completely self-reliant at his retreat, even doing his own laundry and cooking. "Darning socks is getting to be a snap," he says. His hobbies include bowling and swimming. A former church organist, he also likes to relax at the piano or organ. The handsome six-footer looks more like a television star than a roving physician. Apparently security guards at one of his stops thought so, too. He was detained at a check gate for a considerable lime until a base medic appeared to verify identification. Capt. Walker's patients number Admiral 7 Transistor Pocket Radio $29.95 and up Dial 9513 SPORRER'S TV * A »"±NCB 901 SALINGER about 5,000 Air Force men and women plus their dependents. He treats ailments ranging from the timeless head cold to troubles caused by flying supersonic jets. Serious emergency cases at the division's radar sites are handled by local civilian physicians; routine minor treatment by Air Force medical technicians. The amiable "Arkansas Traveler" literally sees his patients when he can get around to them. To the girls, especially, those visits quite possibly are too few—and far between. Smiling and Sme I ling He Laughs at World MERIDAN. Calif. <AP)-.1ohn Greenleaf lives under an abandoned bridge here smiling at his flowers and laughing at taxes. His only possessions are his cabin which he built of materials from a nearby dump, a garden with HO varieties of flowers. 40 albums of phonograph records and a radio-phonograph. He sits there, admiring a bouquet of sunflowers, munching wild mulberries and laughing at the radio comment a t o r s talking about the high cost of living. In 1940. after louring the country as a farm laborer, he couldn't find a job so he built his cabin. He lived mostly on wild nuts, pears, berries, figs and j fish until World War II brought I plentitul part-time jobs. He saved his money, and now | at BO years of age has retired. : Besides flowers and music, lie spends his time watching visit- j ing beaver, fox. deer and skunks. IN AND OCT McALESTEH.

Eisenhower Colls Steel Strike Porley By NORMAN WALKER WASHINGTON (AP)-The Justice Department today was reported gearing for quick action if President Eisenhower decides to invoke the Taft-Hartley law emergency provisions to stop the 77- day steel strike. The President has called in top industry and union leaders to separate White House conferences Wednesday morning in a final effort to get fruitful bargaining without resort to the Taft-Hartley law provisions. ( Officials said privately however they doubt that even a personal appeal from the President will budge the industry and the striking Steelworkers Union from their poles-apart positions. In that event, Eisenhower is expected to trigger the emergency strike provisions into effect. This would call for naming a fact-finding panel to report on the issues. On receipt of the panel's report the President could order the Justice Department to seek a court injunction to halt the strike for an 80-day cooling period. Justice was reported well ahead on its preparatory paper work. It was noted that not only Atty. Gen. William P. Rogers, but the head 'of his department's civil division, j George C. Doub. participated in a White House conference on the steel situation Monday. All negotiations in the steel dispute are at a standstill. The union broke off New York talks conducted by the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service last Friday. II said further such conferences were useless. The President decided on the series of conferences as a final fling at getting both sides together to resume collective bargaining and seek an agreement. Roger M. Blough. board chairman of U.S. Steel Corp., along with chiefs of several other large sleel firms, and R. Conrad Cooper, chief of the industry bargaining team, will represent the industry. David J. McDonald, Steelworkers Union president, and other top union officials are to represent i the union.

By ODELL HANSON LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -The guide who escorts tourists through Nebraska's capital building has one line that's usually good for an arched eyebrow. "It cost 10 million dollars to build," he says of the architectural showpiece. "And the day it was finished it was paid for." Outsiders accustomed to the buy- now, pay-later policies of governments go away with the impression that Nebraska is something of a fiscal freak. Well if pay-as-you-build construction of a capitol makes Nebraska an economic oddball, consider this: No State Debts Nebraska has no state debts and manages to keep enough money in the bank to meet month-end bills. It has no state sales tax and no state income tax. Only one other state, Texas, can make this claim, and Texas enjoys the largesse of severance taxes on oil and gas resources unmatched in Nebraska. State government during the year ended June 30 cost the average Nebraskan $55.60 in taxes, lowest such per capita figure in the nation. Gov. Ralph Brooks returned from the 1959 Governors' Conference in Puerto Rico to report that other governors thought it wonderful that Nebraska manages without sales or income taxes. "They didn't listen to the second half," he complained. "We have no j parks, no roads, no schools!" j It was his facetious way of saying, he explained later, that the; state's economic Spartanism has not been without some sacrifice. The state's debt free status is nothing new. In the 1930s it led to a vigorous promotion of Nebraska as the nation's "white spot" — a campaign to counteract the bad publicity attending several years of drought. Indebtedness by state government — in excess of $100,000 — is unconstitutional in Nebraska. Framers of the constitution in 1875 decreed that "the slate may, to meet casual deficits, or failures in the revenues, contract debts never to exceed in the aggregate of | $100,000, and no greater indebted| ness shall be incurred except for ! the purpose of repelling invasion, , suppressing insurrection or defending the state " Never an Issue The $100,000 limit may have shaped up as a comfortable cushion in those days. Today, even in frugal Nebraska, it's pin money and long-time state officials say they have no recollection of the debt- incurring privilege ever being used. The constitutional ban isn't likely to be changed soon. It just never has become an issue. Nebraska relies heavily on the property tax for revenue, not only at the state level but at county, city and school district levels. Under a recently-set state levy, the owner of a home worth $10,000 will pay about $30 in state property taxes next year. But cities, counties, schools and other subdivisions also make their levies, with the result that a $10,000 home becomes subject to taxes totaling anywhere from $60 to $500. The state levy represents only about 15 per cent of the property tax take. Schools, which receive no i state general fund aid, pocket more than half of the revenue. Little Enthusiasm for Taxes Efforts to enact sales or income taxes with a view to easing the burden on property owners develop Times Herald, Carroll, la, Tuesday, Sept. 29, 1959 regularly at each legislative session — so far, without success, The state resorts to moBt of the other going revenue-producing devices, however. It has a seven cents per gallon state gasoline tax and a four cent per package tax on cigarettes. Liquor and insurance taxes, licenses and fees also help the cause. Only this year did the state get around to taxing pari-mutual race betting, albeit modestly. Bingo also was legalized this year but not principally for revenue purposes. Indebtedness, while banned at the state level, Is common at lower levels of government. A 1956 survey showed counties, cities, schools districts and other subdivisions, excluding public power districts, carrying bonded indebtedness roughly equivalent to the amount of money, federal funds included, spent by state government in an entire year.
