The volunteers are Dr. E. C. Shurlow of Clare and Bernard Baumann, Ruth Koch and Rose Leh * ner, all of Harrison. The four volunteered to serve on the board during the first "On Target" meeting held in the county by the ECMHS. They will attend a board meeting in Midland September 29, The meeting, the first of several to be conducted, was held in the V.F.W. Hall at Harrison last Thursday. A second meeting is tentatively scheduled for October 13 in Harrison, according to Dr. Charles White, community health planner with the ECMHS. A preliminary report on health care facilities and services was presented to persons attending the meeting in Harrison. The services offered by the ECMHS were discussed as were inadequate housing and lack of sufficient dental care in the county. The problem of poor sanitary conditions also was discussed in relation to poor living conditions and the need to have more public health service nursing care. The On Target health service program is part of the rural health development project of the ECMHS and is not a du- plication of comprehensive health planning, according to Dr. White. A separate regional comprehensive health planning program is being developed and will include 14 counties while the On Target program includes one nine counties. The On Target rural health development project has a more limited objective, according to Dr. White, in that it covers only nine counties. Another objective of the program is to improve the health service provided to residents living in the rural area of the ECMHS.

Midland Ph. 631-5510 Gas Taxes Help To Pay New Road Construction From the standpoint of car owners in Clare County, how costly an un-. dertaking has the 42,500 mile Interstate Highway System become? • How much are they contributing at the present time to the construction costs through gasoline taxes and other auto-use taxes? During the past year, based upon the latest figures, they forked up no less than $200,000. That is the amount that went to the federal government. It is exclusive of auto taxes collected by the state. ihe revenue went into the Highway Trust Fund, which takes care of 90 per cent of the. cost of construction. The states pay the other 10 per cent. The heightened interest in the highway program is due to the battle now going on in Washington over moves to divert some of the money to such needs as railroad passenger service, urban mass transit and other transport problems. Some Congressmen feel that the nation's priorities no longer call for the spending of the $5 billion or so collected each year solely for new highways. Under the current federal tax on gasoline (4 cents a gallon) and the special taxes on tires, tubes and accessories, the average Clare County car owner is paying about $30 a year into the trust fund. That is the amount incurred for a car that travels 10,000 miles a a year and gets 14 miles to the gallon. The overall cost_orthe 6,670 passenger cars in operation locally, comes to $200,000 a year. One of the matters before Congress at this time is the future of the highway program, which is due to expire in 1972. Originally begun in 1956 at an estimate- cost of $41 billion or more and .ore- quire at least six years more to complete. Far from agreeing to a slowdown or limitation of the work, state highway officials and others are urging that an even bigger program be embarked upon. They are asking for more attention to the development of local road systems. If Congress extends the life of the program, as presently constituted, for another six years, Clare County car operators will ue contributing*-*an additional $1,201,000.
