(AP Wire- photo) Springdale To Purchase Mobile Intensive Care Ambulance SPRINGDALE --The City Council, at its regular meeting T u e s d a y night, authorized Springdale Fire Chief, Mickey Jackson, to begin advertising for bids on a mobile intensive care ambulance for the city. A bid opening date of August 26 has been set for the ambulance which eventually will be Equipped with sophisticated ·coronary equipment. At the time of purchase, the partially- equipped ambulance is expected to cost less than $20,000. ^ The total project costs -Including all coronary care .equipment -- is projected at $30,000. But Jackson and the c o u n c i l ' s fire department committee felt the vehicle should be purchased now and the more sophisticated equipment at a later date. 7 The city has allocated $15,000 'ot revenue sharing funds to the mobile unit. An additional $7,000 has been raised in donations. ·Voluntary contributions totaling JS.OOO are still being sought. · At a question from Vice- Mayor Charles McKinney who 'was presiding at the meetiirg In the absence of Mayor Park Phillips, Jackson explained why the ambulance would be pur- Chased without containing all t h e equipment eventually planned for it. ', Because Arkansas law does not contain provisions for trained .and certified ; paramedics in city ambulance services, Springdale ambulance attendants -- even with advanced training -- could not o p e r a t e t h e sophisticated equipment that would be part of an intensive coronary care mil wilhqut protection from liability suits. Jackson had indicated earlier Lhat he thought the slate legislature would pass a law recognizing the paramedical profession within a couple years. At this time, the most modern, advanced equipment could be purchases for the unit. Another reason for not purchasing all equipment at the same time as the vehicle' purchase is because better prices could probably be obtained by bidding the larger items seperately, Jackson later told the TIMES. The ambulance that will be bid on will come equipped with the standard items in the regular ambulances. While the new unit will resemble a regular ambulance, the vehicle will b larger with a modular bodj mounted on a truck chassis. Jackson said. The ambulance will differ f r o m regular ambulances because it will have the capacity to carry sophisticate equipment as it is obtained. Lloyd Bucher To Speak In Arkadelphia ARKADELPHIA, A r k .

Senators Investigate Florida School For Disturbed Children WASHINGTON (AP) -- Senile investigators have been told hat patients of a Florida chool for disturbed children vere abused and used as [uinea pigs by the former di- ·eclor of the institution. The Senate permanent inves- igalion subcommittee took tes- imony from two former nurses at the school Tuesday and ilanncd to continue a three-day set of hearings today. Esther Johnson Snow, former chief nurse at the Green Pulley "chool at Orange City, Fla.. .old the subcommittee one pupil vas punished lor injecting ighter fluid into his arm by eing forced to dig a grave and sleep in it even though the arm was seriously infected. The Senate panel also was .old that young persons were allowed virtually unlimited sexual activities, but were punished for, disobeying rules by :eing chained, whipped, given injections of irritants or rodded with an electric "bull shocker." Many of the children at the school were sons and daughters of military personnel whose care was paid for through the Pentagon under the l Civilian Health and Medical Program of Uniformed Services. Sen. Henry M. Jackson, D- Wash., subcommittee chairman, said the school reminded him of concentration camp experimentation in Nazi Germany. After the first day session, the Rev. George Von Hi 11- sheimer, former head of the school, denied charges of abuse and said he was the victim of a witchhunt. He said both nurses who testified had been fired for cause and reported to the state nursing board. He accused them of malice. , Von Hillsiieimer said pupils nad met in a "Democratic assembly" and had voted to impose the mock burial on one vouth who had injected himself with lighter fluid. "The purpose was to confront kids that were carrying on behavior thai would kill them," he said.
