on his row with the Army GOP National Chairman ard W Hall threw his weight into Lhc effort as the subcommittee called a secret meeting today to discuss plans for its sensation packed inquiry Hall told newsmen in phia last night that there is the thread of good American fair play in the proposal that Carthy surrender his seat while the subcommittee investigates Army charges that he and chief counsel Roy M his Cohn used pressure to get favored treatment for a drafted McCarthy tor Press Conference Hall's statement gave support to reports that the White House backed the plan to have Carthy step down from the sub- committee while the hearings are conducted However Hall refused to say if his views were those of the administration White House Press Secretary James C Hagerty hinted however that President Eisenhower will publicly back GOP efforts to get McCarthy to step aside Mr hold a news conference at PST morrow Hagerty was whether the chief executive agrees with Hall I think I know how the dent feels Hagerty said and I suggest you ask him about t h at tomorrow's press conference Committee Disagreement Senate GOP leaders William F Knowland f Calif and Homer guson Mich already have been pushing the same idea But there was some disagreement on the subcommittee Sen Stuart Symington said he would insist that Carthy appoint another Republican to take his place and predicted the two other subcommittee crats would back his stand But Sen Charles E Potter said the group could not take away McCarthy's right to keep his seat McCarthy has refused to say whether he would step aside though he has agreed not to vote on investigation matters The subcommittee meanwhile faced so many other problems as it met that there were indications the inquiry might not get way next Monday as it has hoped Counsel Sought For one thing temporary man Karl E Mundt still hasn't been able to line up a prominent attorney to serve as counsel for the investigation William J Jameson of Billings Mont

Thursday April 15 with the Chicago White Sox Opinions Vary on Public Health Bills Now Before State Senate Mixed feelings were expressed Yuma today about the proposed public health legislation now ing the Arizona Senate Four bills are involved in the legislation in- eluding House Bills 255 270 294 and 295 The health legislation was brought to Yumans attention last week when State Senator Harold C Gisa said they were an invasion of civil rights and needed ing before they would be able Yuma County tives John C Smith Jr and ert Hodge have supported the bills without amendments Otis Shipp chairman of the Yu- ma County Board of Supervisors and chairman of the Yuma County Board of Health The idea of the bills is good but I don't think we should go completely with them 33 they are at present I stand 100 per cent behind Senator Giss in the amendments he sees as necessary We need legislation if we are ever going to gain on this fight against tuberculosis Arizona has the worst tuberculosis record in the nation and we're going to keep the record unless we get some laws with teeth in them Right To Appeal Cited Howard Leonard president of the Yuma Health Council I think that the Senator is making a pretty serious statement when he says that this is equal to if not worse than the Hitler state in Germany The individual still has the right to appeal and if he refuses to comply with an order by the commissioner or the board the commissioner has to file an action in superior court I don't be- lieve that our courts have into anything resembling the Hitler state in Germany And Rain Over More Forecast By Weekend Mercury Low The storm is over for Yuma but more rain is in the offing cording to weatherman Sherd T Baldwin The five-day forecast indicates rain for Yuma toward the end

Tuberculosis Health Association I don't think that depriving one from the privilege of ing tuberculosis is a violation of their civil rights Frank Wick president of the Yuma Area Coordinating Council and Americanism chairman of the local American Legion post This legislation like nearly all bills may probably require minor amendments But in making uie amendments let us not take the teeth out of the bills The only hints of Hitlerism in regard to House 270 are the unwarranted and iniquitous attacks on it The civil rights granted to us under the Constitution do not give any person the right to en- danger the life of another Death is just as certain from disease germs as from a bullet The less and unthinking individual who flagrantly violates the civil rights of others by ing dreaded disease germs is just as much the potential killer as the maniac tuberculosis just takes longer TB Death Kale high Brvin H Schulz president of the and We don't give people the right to go around shooting other people nor killing them with automobiles and we don't let go around ing other people if they have let feyer or small pox Yet some people want us to allow active cases to run around ex- posing the rest of us to sis Tuberculosis is a killer Our death rate in Arizona is three times the national e n times that of we don't have controls as other states do It is time we did thing to protect ourselves and our families from this killer Dr Robert Bailey president of the Yuma County Medical Society The hospital medical staff on January 19 went on record as approving the proposed legislation The doctors in the community are vitally interested in this problem The only possible cut our tuberculosis rate is through such legislation Mrs C D Phillips president of the Yuma County Council of Association One of the primary objects of the is to promote the welfare of all children That includes them against deadly dis- eases such as tuberculosis dren can only catch tuberculosis through the carelessness of an ac live tuberculosis carrier I can't see how by protecting our dren from these potential killers we are setting up a Hitler state or in any other way depriving anyone of his civil rights I hope these bills pass Young Mother's GOIM What To Turn to the Farm Page page 7 today to read about 25 young mothers who lost their teeth prematurely Dick Haymes Is Ordered Deported Long Delay
