Advocate (Newspaper) - April 25, 1964, Victoria, Texas THE VICTORIA ADVOCATE 118th 351 TELEPHONE HI 5-1451 VICTORIA, TEXAS, SATURDAY, APRIL 25, 1964 Estafcllstltd 1MB 63 Military Installations Given Axe Savings Cited By McNamara WASHINGTON CAP) Secre- tary of Defense Robert S. Mc- Namara announced Friday 63 closings, reductions and consoli- dations of military installations and activities at an estimated ultimate saving of million annually. Most of the individual actions involved relatively minor oper- ations including some unused Florida seaplane bases and they will be carried out over a 314-year period to reduce the economic impact on localities and personnel. Protest But some of them were im- portant enough to bring prompt protest from members of Con- gress. None of the 11 government WHOLE COMMUNITY operated naval shipyards and no major Army, Air Force or Navy bases were involved in the announcement but to turn of some of them may come in six to nine months. When completed, the Penta- gon said, Friday's actions will eliminate civilian jobs and military assignments about in the United Slates and overseas. Those affect- ed domestically will be largely civilians, those overseas large- ly military personnel. Savings Cited The Defense Department esti- mated that this latest step will combine with earlier ones in a three-year program of reduction and realignment of facilities and operations to bring an ultimate over-all annual saving of million a year in operating costs and the elimination of el vilian jobs and mililary assign ments. An added ovet-all resuli, the Pentagon said, will be the re lease of acres of land foi sale or nondcfense use by the government. And 61 indusiria plants will have been madi available for sale. All career workers whose jobs are eliminated will be offered other spots and moving expens- es will be paid for employes who must pull up stakes to take another job elsewhere in a de- fense installation, the Pentagon said. Retaining Planned In order to assure widest op- portunity for new jobs, dis- placed workers will be retrained for new skills at government ex- pense, the announcement added. All the closings, reductions and consolidations will be car- ried out without basic impair- ment of the nation's mili- tary might, McNamara said. Fifty-five of the action's an- nounced Friday affect facilities and operations in the United Slates at ultimate annual savings of million. Eight others will involve un- specified overseas bases and op- erations in four countries at (See MILITARY, Page 3) 12 Cents Area Retardation Project Lauded by AMA President By TOM E. KITE Advocate Staff Writer Community concern and lead- ership, such as has been shown 'iy leaders of the Area Project m Retardation, have been esponsible for bringing to the American community the serv- ces it needs and a r- icularly medical Edward R, Annis told project fficers and guests at a lunch- :on here Friday. Dr. Annis, a Miami, Fla., iurgeon, is president of both he American Medical Assoeia- ion and the World Medical As- ociation. This community concern is he thing which has placed far ahead in providing general medical care, he told several hundred listeners. Relating that he recently ipenl 23 days touring Europe, )r. Annis said that he and oth- er Americans have discovered hat Europe has doctors and facilities comparable to a n y- thing in they are concentrated in a few centers and not generally available to the people. While American communities build their own hospitals either through private enterprise or civic cooperation, hospitals in Europe are built only when and where some government agency designates, Dr. Annis said. "That is the reason one new hospital has been built in Bri- tain in the last 17 years, while at the same time we have built tiie national president said. Going a step farther, he said that communication between the medical profession and the peo- ple through the press and other media is vital. Through this communication "knowledge and science made understand- able to a cooperative people" desire and the ability of small American communities to take advantage of medical ad- vancements is marie possible, he asserted. Moving into the field of men- tal health with which the area project is more deeply e o n- cerned, Dr. Annis said that it is an area which far too few people "even in my own profes- sion" understand. Great advances have been made in treating mental illness, he said, and greater ones can be made as the AMA works in close cooperation with the pro- fessional associations of psychi- atrists in training genera] practitioners "to be alert to the early symptoms" of mental ill- ,ess. Just as most common phys- ical ailments are now treated "at home, so must be the men lal ailments" in the future, Dr. Annis said. Too frequently the mentally ill person sent "far of] to some institution" receives (See. PROJECT.

Only seconds before the im- pacl, an unidentified motorbike rider showed up suddenly and scattered over an area a quar- ter-mile long and 100 yards wide. The wings and fuselage were about 300 yards from the end of the runway. The tail section was almost severed and the fu- selage was torn nearly in half just forward of the wings.
