House Kills Med School Aid Bills


The House of Representatives twice this summer rejected President Truman's request for a five-year $250,000,000 program of Federal aid to medical education, and killed all hope for such a bill this session.

In mid-August, the House Commerce Committee shelved a measure to extend Federal funds to medical, dental, and nursing schools, after the bill had passed the Senate. Representative Percy Priest (D., Tenn.), a member of the committee, said that unless Congress took "emergency action," many medical schools would face financial ruin.

It marked the third time during the present Congressional session that the House rejected aid to medical schools.
