More about Rains flood city streets Continued from Page 1 He turned south to Thomas Road and continued west, reporting that many traffic snags developed and many cars were stalled and halted by the flowing water. As he neared the intersection of 43rd Avenue and Thomas, he said the water was up to the top of tires on cars and in other areas the water was 4 feet deep. An APS spokesman said it was calling out all available crews to try to restore electrical service and it would have 75 to 100 men working into the morning hours. He said Paradise Valley also had power outages. The city street maintenance department had all its crews out in the Maryvale area trying to keep drains free of floating debris. The Arizona Highway Patrol said dust from the storm briefly closed Interstate 10 between Picacho and Red Rock and that the thunderstorm seemed to follow the freeway route as it moved toward the Valley. The patrol also reported rockslides on U.S. 60-70 between Superior and Miami and heavy rain. Patrolmen said they were investigating several accidents along Interstate 10. Tucson also received rain last night, but disruptions were minor. Official says VA rejecting patients Associated Press MIAMI BEACH-Veterans Administration hospitals have been rejecting patients with chronic ailments because of reduced bed space and in an effort to boost statistics that would make the medical staff appear sufficient, a top VA official said here Friday. Dr. Benjamin Wells, deputy chief medical director for the VA, said the agency is investigating the practice and taking steps to correct it. Wells made his remarks at the national conference of VFW service officers, the first activity of the 71st national convention of the Veterans of Foreign Wars. Thirteen thousand veterans, many trailing youngsters wearing T-shirts proclaiming "My Daddy Is a Veteran," began arriving here yesterday for the eight-day convention. Scheduled events for the meetings include a speech Monday by Vice President Spiro Agnew and presentation of the VFW Americanism Award to Agnew and the Space Award to astronaut Neil Armstrong, first man to walk on the moon. Wells said in his speech that too often admission of veterans as patients in VA hospitals is "influenced by the number of beds available." He said bed space had dropped from 119,000 units in 1965 to below 100,000 now. He said the VA hopes to boost the figure to 101,000 next year. "In addition there is the tendency to select the patient with a short-term ailment rather than a chronic illness in order to assure rapid turnover and thus create a great- er use of Wells said. bed capacity," Dr. Wells said the VA's "prime purpose must be to take care of veteran patients and not statistics." The VFW commander-in- chief, Ray Gallagher, predicted yesterday that delegates would act on 600 resolutions, including one to move the 1972 convention from New York City back to Miami Beach. He said the move would retaliate for a statement attributed to New York Mayor John V. Lindsay last spring in which he reportedly called draft resisters "the real heroes of the Vietnam war." Gallagher called the remark "an insult to our veterans and our men in Vietnam; I think the mayor should suffer the consequences." Associated Press ST. PAUL—Joseph Rhodes, student member of the President's Commission on Campus Unrest, suggested yesterday that the use of National Guardsmen might have prevented the death of two students at Jackson State College. Rhodes, who was conducting informal hearings at the 23rd annual congress of the National Student Association, in- tervened in an argument between two students. University of Maryland student Vincent Brannigan was describing the actions of a student and faculty • group during disorders at that, university this spring. Brannigan said the group assisted police and guardsmen injured in clashes with students. John Scagliotti of the University of New Hampshire Commerce Committee OKs drug control bill Associated Press WASHINGTON-The House Commerce Committee approved yesterday a sweeping narcotics control bill with the controversial no-knock authority for agents and a reduction of penalties for drug possession. It also has rehabilitation and research features, runs generally parallel with proposals by the Nixon administration and carries a price tag of about $400 million. Chairman Harley 0. Staggers, D-W.Va., said the bill probably will be brought to the House in the latter part of September, after a 3%-week recess -which began late yesterday. A House fight is expected over the no-knock provisions. These authorize police to enter houses without knocking while executing search and arrest warrants. The basic idea is to prevent dsetruction of evidence. The bill would apply to barbiturates, amphetamines, hallucinogens, transquilizers and marijuana. A section approved by the Ways and Means Committee to control imports and exports of hard narcotics also is included. challenged the propriety of that action. Rhodes pointed a finger at Scagliotti and said, "With an attitude like that, you will cause somebody to get killed." Then Rhodes said if the guard had been at Jackson State the two students might not have been killed. The students died when state and local police fired into a student crowd in front of a dormitory after, police said, snipers fired at them. "The guards and police are different from state to state," Rhodes said, "and in many cases have saved lives." Brannigan asked Scagliotti, "Are you trying to say that a young guardsman, younger than I, that I carried off with a broken leg, is my enemy?" Brannigan praised the National Guard but was critical of the Prince George County sheriff's office, which is ac- cused of flying over the campus with helicopters and in one instance dropping tear gas on stretcher bearers who were "wearing white shirts with red crosses imprinted on them." He said that all seriously injured were either police or guardsmen, and then added, "I saw students do things they should be jailed for and I saw police do things they should be jailed for."

They said Janet Barker, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Lyle Barker, 124 E. Butler, was admitted to John C. Lincoln Hospital in serious condition. Investigators said the bullet entered below the heart and passed completely thjough her body. Detective Don Toms said Janet's older sister, Susan, told him she had been playing with the gun and removed the magazine in the belief she was emptying it of all bullets. She then pulled the trigger and a bullet that had remained in the gun struck Janet, the detective said. The two girls had been watching television in the living room with a third sister, Wendy, 15, when the accident occurred, he said. Susan was treated at the same hospital for shock.
