   Blytheville Courier News (Newspaper) - October 29, 1964, Blytheville, Arkansas                              BLYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS VOL. 188 BLYTHEVILLE, ARKANSAS, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 29, 1954 18 PAGES FIVE CENTS SeMo Attacks Poverty Problem County is taking dead aim on one of the prime problems of the poor: large families and unwanted babies. Business leaders and physi- cians have joined in launching t family planning program which will be administered through the Pemiscot County Health Department. Hayti businessmen Jim Ray C. W. Reed III, instigated the family planning effort. Within 30 days the family planning project will be in op- eration according to Public Health Administrator John S. Duncan of Hayti. Jtay and Reed introduced the plan to the County Health Board on Oct. 5 and it was presented to the Medical Socie- ty for approval on Oct. 22. Several years ago the idea of a birth control clinic in Pem- iieot County was considered controversial. However, since ifiP presentation to the board, the Family Planning Program has been approved by all civic clubs and many churches. Ray and Reed circulated a petition among county residents to determine public acceptance of the'project. As a result, the medical society learned this type of family planning pro- gram was widely accepted in the county. Duncan said he believes sev- eral other Missouri counties will follow Pemiscot in adopting the program within the next few jnpnths. The plan calls for two clinics in Pemiscot County. Each will be able to take only ten women a month. Most of the clinics will involve education. They will he shown films con- cerning birth control and will have conferences with nurses and doctors. The oral contra- ceptive method has been accep- ted by the doctors and the med- ical society. These pills will be issued to the women for per month. If it's impossible for the wom- en to pay the pills will be free. The cost of the clinics will de- pend on the number of people attending. Doctors are hoping as more women enter the pro- gram, health unit funds will increase. "At stated Duncan, "no doctors have been appoint- ed to the pro gram but all have accepted it and are working to complete planning of the pro- ject as soon as possible." He said it is probable doctors will work in the clinic on a vol- unteer basis. Members of the board will visit a clinic in Dyersburg, Tenn., within the next few weeks to observe and receive a general idea of how the clinic i there is conducted.

The missionary. Dr. Paul Carlson, 36, of Rolling Hills, Calif., has been in the Congo 14 months. Rebel warriors cap- tured him Sept. 20 at Yakoma on the northern frontier, accord- ing to a communique issued by Christpphe Gbenye, claimed president of the Congo- lese People's Republic in Stan- leyville. The rebels claimed Carlson was a major in the U.S. armed forces, but U.S. Embassy offi- cials say his only military expe- rience was a two-year hitch in the Navy. Carlson's wife and two chil- dren fled to the neighboring Central African Republic with other missionaries during the rebel offensive last month. AP Business News Writer NEW YORK (AP) Bethle- hem Steel Corp. got ready today to toss its latest profit figures into the rekindled debate over steel prices. Following custom, the second largest steel producer planned to report third quarter and nine- month results at the close of the New York Stock Exchange. The steel price argument revived on new word that Presi- dent Johnson would take a skep tical view of any major steel price rise. That word was con- sidered a prime factor in i stock market dip Wednesday. Actually, the President saic Aug. 8 when price rise talk was in the air that he would look upon any markup with 'very serious concern" and urged steel executives to act responsi- bly. But the subject is touchy, fraught with memories of the President John F. Kennedy- steel industry controversy of April 1962.
