Government insurance is compulsory on all employed people. The unemployed are cared for free of cost. All hospital services are paid and payment is based on cost figures supplied by the hospitals. The direct tax for compulsory insurance pays approximately 42 per cent of the costs. The remaining 58 per cent is derived from general tax funds. Free of Control According to the speaker, the hospitals and the people are free from government control. Yet, if the hospitals do not operate as economically and efficiently as the government thinks they should, a team of government "experts" is immediately sent to the hospital and directs the hospital in managing their affairs. This did not sound like freedom to the American audience. The most unusual thing about this speaker is his belief that this plan leaves the individual free. The individual must buy compulsory health insurance. He has no choice. In the 2nd place, he and all other taxpayers must pay as much again out of the funds that they contribute in general taxes. They must pay not only for their own service which they may or may not need in a given year, but they must pay for the medical service received by everyone else. Again it was difficult for an American audience to understand now this direct compulsory insurance plan plus an uncontrolled expenditure of tax funds represented freedom for people, Mr. Wood stated. Dr. Hershey, from British Columbia, followed the same genera; line of argument in his talk. "The most amazing thing aboul both of these speakers, who very obviousiy were speaking in good faith, was their belief that when the government takes all responsibility for the medical care of the people, the people become free and independent from governmen interference," the Mason Cityan added. "Actually the people are completely .ontrolled. England Different "The situation in England is a little bit different. Dr. Banks stated that socialism in Englanc was inevitable and that Englanc has been moving in this direction for nearly 50 years. The government has played an increasing par in providing health service for more and more people ever since the Boer war. Both world wars acted to increase the amount o: government regulation. 'Dr. Banks gave a full description in the way in which the English system works. He admitted that it was very costly and tha the great bulk of the expense' L borne by direct taxation. He also stated that privacy no longer existed in England unless you were willing and able to pay an enormous price over and abov the cost to you of your Nationa Insurance." Dr. Banks listed the followinj difficulties which the plan has en countered: 1. There was and still is a tremendous shortage of all facilities, doctors, -nurses, etc. There has been no improvement in this situation. 2. Terms and conditions of services are completely unsatisfactory to the whole medical and allied professions. 3. The cost has so fur exceeded the estimates that there is con- ;tant danger that the service will go bankrupt. 4. Necessary repairs and maintenance, neglected during the war have not been made. 5. Adequate machinery for administering such a vast plan is not available and has not yet been properly provided. Cannot Turn Back Dr. Banks states, however, that England cannot possibly turn back and that the people are happy with their experiment. For this country, Dr. Banks recommended that Americans study everything England has done carefully and learn what not to do. A number of prominent men were invited to comment on the speeches just reviewed. It was pointed out that the reasons which produced socialized medicine in all these countries are not yet present in the American system. The 2 most dangerous factors are the continuing deficits of the large majority of hospitals and the continuing demand of the people for more medical care at a lower cost. The 2 most pertinent comments were by J. Douglas Coleman, hairman of the national Blue Cross commission, and by the Rev. Donald A. McGowan, director, Na- ional Catholic Welfare Confer- nce. Father McGowan stated that he most dangerous factor leading owards socialized medicine in this country is the growing loss of a ;ense of personal responsibility in :he American people. "Many of our people now do not vant to be responsible for the velfare of themselves and of their families. Unless that sense of personal responsibility can be strengthened and re-established, government control of every aspect of our lives is inevitable," he declared. Points Out Difference Mr. Coleman stated that the IN LOVING MEMORY of our dear mother, who passed away- 10 years ago today, Oct. 6, 1939. Sleep on dear, good mother, It has been long years Since you left our hearts filled with sadness and tears: Yours was s heart that was blithesome and gay, Scattering sunshine all along the way; You know how we loved you, and yes, love you yet, Though God took you from us we cannot forget.

When a government offi- :ial decides that some change is indicated, the change is made and ordered. Government officials know that money can be drawn from the public treasury and that the people whom the change will effect have no control over expenditure of these funds." After listening to these speakers, Mr. Wood reports he cannot believe that such a socialized system is now or ever can be the American way. Money to Loan S Nest Plantings Aid Red Forests Moscow, (fP) —Russians in putting into effect their large forestation program are relying heavily on the "nest method" of tree planting. This method was proposed by Academician Trofim L y s e n k o, Russia's leading agronomist, who declares that it is based on the principles of Michurinist biology. The nest method of tree planting involves the planting in a small circle of a number of seedlings. It is claimed that within this group of seedlings there is no conflict and that they assist each other in mutual defense against their enemies—weeds and grass. Experiments have shown, papers declare here, that the survival of tree seedlings is much higher in "nest planting" than is the case with individual planting.
