Gross Penny-Pinches to Last Minute
By Derothy Williams
W ASHING TON — Don’t think Rep H R Gross is going to quit calling for governmental penny-pinching just because he is retiring
Not at all He plans to be on the house floor throughout the the lame duck session which opens on Nov. 18. warning of economic disaster and demanding fiscal responsibility just as he has been throughout his 28 years in congress
“I’m going to be there doing what I can right up until the last minute,” the Iowa Republican said.
The economy is the real issue just as it has Iteen for years in Gross’ view
With the increase in Democratic membership in the senate and house, it is now up to the Democrats to get the country back on an economically sound basis. Gross said.
‘‘Congress has not performed (in a fiscally responsible way).
“Remember the president can spend nothing that is not made available to him (by congressional appropriation), nor can be make policies
“There are no excuses for the Democrats dawdling.” 8 Gross said “It is up to them to show results There is no way I they can escape the obligation and responsibility They now •< have an awesome task to straighten out this mess ”
Gross was heartened by the fact that his district -- Iowa’s third — was the only Hawkeye state district to stay in the Republican column in Tuesdays voting with the election of 41-year-old Charles Grassier. Otherwise, he found little or nothing to cheer about
The more Democrats, the more big spending, he fears As (iross sees it. we are paying the economic price now for the fact that the Democrats have controlled congress continuously since the days of President Franklin D. Roose\elt except for two years in the administration of Dwight D. Eisenhower.
Gross doubts very much that President Ford s recommendation of a five percent surtax will be approved
Asked to what he attributes the Democratic sweep. Gross said he is “sure Watergate played a part and certain actions of President Ford — the pardon, the amnesty .“
IOW A (TTY - Red Oak has been named as the site for a model regional primary health care center in southwest Iowa Dr. Paul see boh rn. executive assoc iate dean of the’ Lm-versity of Iowa college* of medicine, said the selection was the result of a six-month study of possible sites in southern Iowa Other potential locations for the regional center were Centerville. Chariton, Clarinda. Coming Creston. Hamburg. Leon, Osceola and Shenandoah.
“It was a very difficult decision,” Dr Seebohm explained “Unfortunately, we currently have resources for only one site All the communities which were under consideration have strong points in their favor and we have been encouraged in talking with physicians and community leaders in these towns
“We hope we can maintain communication lines and perhaps aid them in future physician recruitment programs ”
The Iowa Regional Medical program is financing the planning and development of the model regional primary care program with a grant of $52,-801) to the college of medicine.
The aim of the program is to assist a community in a rural area in* revitalising its basic medical and health care resources. The I of I. college of medicine will provide assistance in planning and developing the program which is, in turn, directed by local physicians The Health Planning Council of the Midlands has
approved the plan in concept and will be assisting in its dev elopment
It is the hope of the college of medicine,” Dr Seebohm explained, ‘that the center will prov ide a model that can be followed by other Iowa communities like Red Oak in similar need of meddical services.”
Dr Seebohm noted that the Red Oak physicians “feel a responsibility to the community to insure the future adequacy of medical resources in the Red Oak area ”
Dr. Harold Bastrom and Dr. Jack Fickel. Red Oak family physicians, will be the nucleus of the center's professional staff Another two family physicians will be added by July I.
Dr Glen Skallerup. a general surgeon, and Dr James Shehan. an internist, both of Red Oak. will work with the group practice as consultants and for educational purposes Construction of a physician clinic on a site recently purchased by Murphy Memorial hospital is scheduled to begin in 1875
Dr. Bastron noted. “It has been more than 20 years since a young family physician last moved to Red Oak We’ve been trying to recruit young family physicians but none of the things we tried seemed to work.
“There are young physicians who would not mind practicing rn a rural area like southwest Iowa but in Red Oak we have only just come to realize that young physicians
Engine Trouble Delays Round-the-World Voyage
Blindness No Handicap for Luther Student
DECORAH — A piece of moss ... a stone ... a fish tail ... a crab claw ... a seed pod . . . some lichen-covered slate. These are only some of the mementos that Donna Hintch brought home to Iowa
Each item represents a precious memory for Donna, and each item has a texture, shape and quality winch, when touched by Donna's sensitive fingers, allow her to see.
Donna Hintch is blind. Her disability, however, is hardly a handicap After all. she did spend five weeks in Norway this summer and she s going back next summer.
Donna, a senior at Luther college was one of eight Americans selected to attend the 1074 Lions international youth camp at the Beitostolen sport center in the Valdres area of Norway about 150 miles north of Oslo.
Annually the Lions have sponsored a two-week camp at the health center especially for handicapped people, hoping to provide an opportunity for campers to develop their own possibilities for a richer life through a training program and through contact with people from other countries. About 40 people from 12 different countries attended the 1974 camp held July 7-22
Bliiid since birth Donna attended the camp as a regular camper, sponsored by the Decorah Lions club. She was accompanied by Mary Frederickson of Zurnbrota. Minn , then a Luther sophomore, who served as Donna s sighted companion Mary was sponsored by the Zumbrota Lions club
After arriving, the campers were divided into two groups. (hie group remained at the center the first week, while the other, including Donna, traveled to Gronolen a small botel about seven kilometers (4.3 miles) from the center.
Donna described the hotel, explaining that it was “really a mountain farm with thatch-roofed log bams complete with cracks chinked with mud. a stream, and hay dry ing (Mi wooden fences ’
The second week the groups changed places and Donna and her group moved to the center where the four Americans in the group stayed in a staff house. This slightly unusual “privilege” was granted the Americans because they tended lo habitually, but generally harmlessly, break the camp's ll pm curfew with their night talk and laughter
At the staff house, they were free to keep whatever “strange hours" they desired which, Donna says, “we did For example, we tended to get hungry at night, so we d ask for extra sandwiches and tea and invite the rest of the hungry* herd — we had some real international gatherings”
Luckily, mornings didnt begin too early — breakfast was at 9 a rn at the farm and 8 3(1 at the center It was generally followed by morning walks. Those unable to walk rode horses or were pulled in a dog cart by a huge Newfoundland — “oh. was he huge ' Donna commented with her hands spread wide
about table height. It was on these nature walks that Donna collected some of the seed pods. moss, stones and licen-covercd slate — all items of special interest to Donna who will graduate in May with a general science major
Afternoons meant a variety of things, including rug weaving, rock polishing, archery, horseback riding, ball games, swimming and boating Donna especially liked the boating
“I talked them into letting me have a single Kayak the second day out. and I was lucky. I never did capsize' I really liked paddling out into the middle of the lake and just relaxing there; it was the only time I had to be by myself. There was just so much to do*"
One activity she didn t care for was horseback riding with the help of Morse ( ode. “I'm not used to a saddle for one thing — I'm not used to sitting back on the horse. Whenever I ve ridden a horse. I ve always been dinging to it. bare-back style " Also. the Morse ( ode thing was confusing “It had something to do with transistors and signals that would tell us when and which way to turn. I preferred the Kayak ”
The two weeks in the Lions-sponsored camp were not the only days Donna spent in Nor
way. She and Mary had gone over three weeks before the camp began, and each visited friends and relatives. Donna spent most of her time in Trondheim with friends While there, she had the opportunity to visit many fjords, and brought home a collection of shells, kelp and other seashore treasures to remind her of her days near the sea
Hark at ( amp
But there appears to be opportunity for more of those days. When Donna left Norway in July, she didn t say good-bye, just "so long " She is going back to the health center next summer to work. not only at the Lions youth camp, but for the whole summer.
How did she manage that7 “Well.” she explains. “I got to know the director — Erlmg Slordahl — who is also blind One day I went in and asked if there was a chance for me to come back. He said. ‘Sure. I think something could be worked out. Mould you like to come back next summer?’ ’
“Of course I said yes,” Donna says quickly, “I wanted to learn to speak Norwegian better and I felt I fit into that culture and got along well with the people; I also felt confident I could work for other people, and I felt I could help in the nature study program.”

Another inducement to recruit young physicians into the Red Oak family practice group is its affiliation with the
U. of I and the opportunity to help train family physicians Dr Seelxihm believes the Red Oak program could prove to Im* an important new means for coping with rural Iowa s physician shortage.
“Physicians are more likely to select one of Iowa s larger rural communities if it offers the type of opportunities the regional primary care program extends.” he said Dr Robert Kakel, head of the university’s department of family practice, helped plan the model program and select the site
“The statewide family practice education network welcomes the opportunity for community-based training of its resident physicians.’ Dr. Rake! said. “Family practice resident physicians, as well as medical students, will be rotating through the Red Oak center
“I anticipate that many of our future family practice graduates will Im* influenced to remain and practice in Iowa based on the advantages demonstrated by this model.
“The satisfaction derived from tieing able to give high quality medical care in a welldesigned facility — coupled with exposure to a friendly and enthusiastic community — has great appeal to these new physicians ”
