K.ill-jrl chairman of i the caucus, said the group will j locus its discussion with the President on what lie cliar- as the pressing needs of blacks living in the nation's blighted urban cen- ters grealer employment, better housing and relief from inflation. "There won't hi- a Nil of demands." Rangel said in an interview, "but our concerns and priorities will he outlined." Ford requested the meeting with the black lawmakers, prompting Rangel to hail the uu'rtiire as an indication hy the President "of Hie serious- ness of his intention to open his administration to the ad- vice and counsel of those of us who represent people whose views and needs were ignored by the Nixon administration." Kangel said the caucus will not advance specific legisla- proposals, but rather would seek lo list its priori- ties, in keeping with Ford's call for economic reform. Taking up the President's theme of "communication, conciliation, compromise and cooperation." Rangel said the caucus agenda would be "con- sistent" with efforts lo cut government spending and other inflation-fighting pro- posals. "We would support cut- backs, but we will present our concerns about where Ihe cuts should be from the perspec- tive of our constituents." he said. Rangel, a second-term Hospital Study Is Being Made WAUKON For the third time in about six years, a comprehensive study of local hospital facilities, needs, and procedures is being made. Two of these studies have been to .consider expansion, the current one having been initiated the same month that bids on a temporary structure to house medical records, administrator's office, and an in-service meeting room are being received. Other areas trustees are interested in expanding and improving include the emergency and X-ray depart- ments. Hewitt and Rover. Kansas City, hospital construction consultants, will investigate needs and how they can be met by remodeling. In a similar earlier study this firm also explored the possibility of building a new- hospital. The trustees, city council, administrator, and medical staff have discussed the space problem and have concluded this alternative is not practi- cal at this time. Woman Injured TIPTON-Janel Smith, daughter of the Homer Smiths. Tipton, is a patient in a Kirksville, Mo., hospital receiving treatment for inju- ries suffered in an auto ac- cident last week near Kirks- ville.

(UPI) Three University of Washing- ton medical researchers say acupuncture as a dental anesthesia has effects similar to those of 33 percent nitrous oxide. Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese technique of manip- ulating needles in sensitive spots in the body lo relieve pain. Nitrous oxide is a form of anesthesia commonly known as laughing gas. Suggest Techniques Dr. C. Richard Chapman, assistant professor holding joint appointments in the university's departments of anesthesiology, psychiatry and psychology, says the findings Mt.

Acupuncture could also he used for those patients who are unwilling to accept an anesthetic injected in the mouth but who will accept acupuncture needling in the hand, he said. The research also shows that acupuncture produces partial rather than complete pain relief. Chapman and Drs. .John Gehrig, professor of oral sur- gery in the dentistry school, and Michael Wilson of the anesthesiology department, simulated dental pain by applying several intensities of electrical shock to the teeth of experiment volunteers. Received Neither Some of the volunteers received acupuncture stimula- tion in the fleshy part of the hand between the thumb and forefinger. Others were ad- ministered nitrous oxide. A third group, used as experiment controls, received neither. Chapman said that com- pared with the control group, both the nitrous oxide and acupuncture groups showed a significant, though small, decrease in sensitivity to pain. "The real payoff from the use of acupuncture in dentistry will be what we will learn about the nature of dental said Chapman. Chapman recently returned from the People's Republic of China, where he accompanied 11 other pain researchers and physicians on a three-week tour of medical facilities in Peking, Canton and Shanghai. The group witnessed 4S operations with the use of acupuncture, including oral surgery. One oral surgeon told Chapman that although he uses a local anesthetic for most of his cases to save time, he prefers acupuncture and has actually used acupuncture anesthesia for approximately cases. The Chinese surgeon told Chapman that the acupuncture technique in China is safe and the dental patient recovers more quickly than with other forms of anesthesia.
