Palm Beach Post, Monday, Nov. 25, 1968-7 Health Spending Study Initiated Allies Uncover 2 Stocks Of Enemy War Materiel Mr1 TALLAHASSEE (AP) -Some 700 doctors, dentists and hospital workers have been asked to give their ideas on how the $l.t billion used for health services in Florida each year could be better spent. Kobert Koesch, director of the State Office of Comprehensive Health Planning, said he and other federal, state and local officials will try to explain to conference participants how their planning work is aimed at getting more value out of that huge amount of money. He said county health offi- namese waters shortly after the bombing halt for a brief period of refitting in Subic Bay in the Philippines. The heaviest actions reported Saturday took place in the Mekong Delta southwest of Saigon and in the jungles along the Cambodian border northwest of thecapital. In the Delta, men of the U.S. 9th Division had a running fight with a sizable main force unit. At the end of the day 58 enemy were killed --most of them by helicopter gunships which raked the battlefield whenever the enemy broke cover. mines, grenades and medical supplies. The U.S. Navy reported the battleship New Jersey had returned to waters off the demilitarized zone to support troops in the area. The battleship moved in close to the shore Saturday, using only her five-inch secondary guns, to lay down several bombardments in support of troopers of the U.S. Americal Division sweeping coastal marshlands about 25 miles below Da N'ang. The American troops reported killing 47 enemy soldiers in a series of skirmishes throughout Saturday. The battleship had left Viet IV cers, osteopaths, legislators and Negro leaders have also been invited to the first governor's conference on health planning to be held in Miami on Dec. 1. "We want to explain the function of this office," the director said, "and to seek constructive criticism or any kind of criticism, advice or ideas." He said his office is trying to gather information about health services being offered in Florida, what is needed and where and what kind of federal and state funds can be ased to solve the problems. Purpose is to be able to establish priorities or at least offer alternative solutions so someone else can make a decision, Roesch said, because even $1.1 billion doesn't do the ib adequately. 1 - r x If r 1 wrr NEED NEW FLOORS? call GRIFFIN FLOORING COMPANY Southern Blvd at lake Ave. 832-7561 Free Estimates 7 Suiff Photo liv Lou I'avne left, both of Troop 197, are shown Saturday turning over a model airplane to Marine Sgt.

Boy Scouts Danny Smith and Carl Wright, from the SAIGON' (API - American and South Vietnamese troops have turned up two big stocks of enemy war materiel just below the demilitarized zone, allied headquarters reported Sunday. At the same time the U.S. Command disclosed another incident within the corridor dividing North and South Vietnam. It was the 23rd fire exchange called "significant" since President Johnson's bombing halt order Nov. 1. In addition to activity along the DMZ. there was a stepup in action throughout South Vietnam - with some 187 enemy troops killed in a half dozen fights Saturday. There also were two more enemy sheliings of district towns there have been 86 such attacks since the bombing halt. Despite the relative increase in combat, the war remained largely static everywhere but around the demilitarized zone which is the major area of allied concern. The latest incident Saturday afternoon followed the pattern of earlier exchanges in the DMZ. A small American observation plane was fired on by enemy troops. The plane called in Marine artillery on the enemy. American officers said enemy activity in the zone was a violation of the pledge the Hanoi government is reported to have made lor the bombing halt. Hanoi has denied it made such a pledge. The two big supply dumps were found by the southern edge of the zone on routes frequently used by enemy troops in the past. One site was near the Marine stronghold known as the Rockpile and the other was nearer the coast above the artillery camp at Gio Linh. They contained about 50.000 rounds of heavy machinegun ammunition, some 400 shells and rockets plus stacks of Providing an atmosphere of elegance for your traditional ma wmm Student Unrest Closes Egyptian Universities Thanksgiving Dinner Whether it's turkey with all the trimmings, a succulent steak or any of our fine entrees . . . you'll enjoy a truly delightful .Thanksgiving at The Flame.
