The agency recruits salaried physicians and other health professionals for placement in areas that have a critical shortage of health manpower. The professionals and communities are brought together through a program that matches tha needs and desires of each for mutual compatibility. There are some 600 corps physicians, dentists, nurses, and other health professionals now serving about 250 communities in 42 states. Recruitment and placement of health teams isn't the only objective of the corps. It also helps communities build their own health resources and assists them in developing systems that attract and keep health professionals. To achieve this goal. the corps provides administrative and Financial management assistance to the community, About a quarter of the clinics assisted by the corps have become independent since the health service was established about years ago and no longer need federal support. The corps represents a coopera- tive venture between the federal government and a local community working as partners to provide quality medical care. Any community that has a critical shortage of health manpower and a willingness to cooperate in the management and development of a successful medical or dental practice may apply for assistance. transcript.

The Senator criticized officials at the Commerce Department in Washington for the criteria and procedures used to distribute the funds. He said "Commerce Department officials here in Washington either handled this program in a totally incompetent manner or they have deliberately attempted to subvert the law." Only six West Virginia projects were approved with a total value of $924.000. At the hearing, called to examine the implementation of the job opportunities program. Randolph expressed concern that only one month was allowed for local officials to develop projects and file applications. "This clearly insufficient time for small communities without staffs and with only part-time officials to do what is necessary," The Senator declared. He told of his recent meeting with the mayor, officials and civic leader of Parsons. Tucker County, to review problems associated with the pre- paration of applications. Randolph's position was sup ported by Senator James McClure {R-Idaho}. "The specific thrust of the job opportunities program was to establish projects that could be quickly begun with high labor requirements that would result in community improve- ments." Randolph said. ? Heavy rains caused high water conditions. The river is down now, but during the rains, the river rose to touch the back wall of this house.
