a little sour toward my fellowman Ive found it an effective antidote to haul out a copy of either one of two Tom Dooley books Ive kept con veniently at hand on my read ing table One of these is titled Deliv er Us From Evil and the other one is called The Edge of To morrow Theyre the running story of a young American doc tor who has devoted his profes sional career to a mission of mercy at the jumping off place of civilization first Vietnam then Laos Now theres a third book by that same unbelievable young man Its called The Night They Burned the Mountain and its recently off the Farrar Straus and Cudahy Press pub lisher of the first two of the trilogy Would that the three but particularly this last volume of just about 200 pages could be made required reading for the chap who not

review of this third Dooley book It starts with the forma tion of MEDICO which stands for Medical International Co Opcration Organization and ends with a lung cancer opera tion which has given Tom Doo

not he states try ing to replace any already ex isting programs in the field of health We feel that the World Health Organization and the In ternational Cooperation Ad ministration of our govern ments foreign aid program are doing excellent jobs in pre ventive medicine What we wish to do is a job in simple therapeu tic medicine The MEDICO concept he pointed out is a blend of three We have taken some of the philosophy of Dr Schweitzer who believes that man belongs to man that man has claims on man and we have given it to days accent We feel hat man Continued on Page 2 i North Iowa Partly
