Life Begins at Forty Group to Study Health Needs Hie harangue over health care for the aged the past year, this column urged that a committee of impartial, top-level citizens be appointed to study President Kennedy's Medicare tfah and determine Lf it was Socially and economically sound for our nation. But no committee was appointed and the ensuing debate on health care for the aged descended intoiwn emotional free-for-all vocalized by such biased groups as physicians, labor unions, and tli e elders themselves. Now that several weeks have passed since Medicare was defeated by four votes in the U.S. Senate, Sen. Jacob K. Javits (RNY) has taken the initiative and has invited 12 prominent citizens Breeding Follows Same Vote Pattern J . ELLSWORTH, Kan. (AP)—Rep. ] J. .Floyd Breeding, D-Kan., said ' today he followed "the same voting pattern during the past two. years as I did'under the Eisenhower administration."

"I have avoided the extreme of both the left on the right"When I think a bill is right, 1 vote for it. When I think a bill is not in the best Interest of Kansas or the United States, I vote against it. I followed thi s rule under Mr. Eisenhower. I have followed it under President Kennedy and I fully expect to follow it under the next president." I Breeding' said his strong support of a bipartisan foreign policy started under the Eisenhower administration. "Mr. Eisenhower believed that the program for strengthening our friends and allies both economically and militarily to withstand communism was absolutely essential to our own security," he said. "I supported him in this view. "Mr. Kennedy has' continued this Eisenhower policy and I have just as strongly supported him. "Mr. Eisenhower fought valiantly for expanded international trade and twice under his administration I voted for extension of the Reciprocal Trade Agreements Act. This year, I supported Mr. Kennedy's Trade Expansion Act along with a vast majority of Democratic and Republican members to continue and expand our trade program.." to evaluate Medicare, along with other proposals, and make rec- commendatio^s to the nation early next year. . , With such fine, non-p6HticJal minds on the committee -as Ur. Arthur Flemmlng, president of the University of Oregon, Russell A. Nelson of Johns Hopkins Hospital, and John C. ^eslie of Pan American Airways,, we' stand a good chance of getting an intelligent, unbiased appraisal of the best way to provide for the health needs of elder citizens. • A billion dollars is a shadowy ' figure — and not particularly \ overpowering considering the size ' of the national debt and the pro- j posed Federal budget of $92 billion dollars for 1963.

' * * * ' Great minds often differ, as seen in the. disparate geriatric views of two scholarly tycoons — Edward F. Hutton, ex-chairman of General Foods and founder of a great brokerage house, and Owen D. Young, former chairman of General Electric and R.CA. Both these stalwarts succumbed last summer at the ages of 88 and ' 87, respective^ • When I talked with Hutton a year or so ago he denounced mandatory retirement expressed his. conviction that age invokes wisdom, and left no doubt that in his opinion elders have much to contribute to industry and society. But Young took the opposing view and once said, "A man can be of maximum use only to his own generation. I really believe that there is more harm done by old men who cling to their influence than by young men who anticipate it." Apparently Young tossed off as exceptions such global titans as Khrushchev, 68, DeGaulle,. 72, and Adenauer, 88. Thomas A. Edison will never rate as patron saint among restaurateurs. Wrote he, "People eat too much. It is like taking mor phine, the more 'you take the more you want. People' gorge themselves with rich food. They use up their time and ruin their digestions and poison themselves •with excess foods. If doctors would prescribe diets instead of drugs many ailments of normal man would disappear."
