Each encountered a different part ol tl^e animal, and brought back a different story of what It was .like. One ran into.its side, and declared Ihe elephant was like a wall. Another got hold of an ear, and said the elephant was '.Ike n bird. And so it went, each with u little of the truth, but none with all il it. The result was a tjrand row, «n"d no information of value to anyone. The nation now has tin elephant o its hfmcis. as you might say, In the gigantic task of getting back to normal Hvlng. Our wise men, our lea^ferV ih~' various lines, have examined tho elephant. And they've given us confusing reports which" hiVerVt solved the problem, because most ofVtKfm' £ere blinded by the interests of their own particular group's. , Labor lenders proclaimed that.the way to geL rid of the elephant was to (jive wages a huge bobsl, mid hold prices down. Business spokesmen said the remedy was to throw off price control's; and let' prices find their own level. Farm leaders argued for higher returns to farming. Tile bureaucrats In \yashlngton. supported by-the President^ contended for tighter controls, more., government authority, greater spending. Not all of the leaders of these Croups have been so mistaken. There were and there, nre, wise .heads among them who Have sccii from th.start that the one way to deal with the ele- piiflnt'was to get full and prorifpt production'of every kind of goods. But ih'e counsel of these wiser leaders lias been lost in a bubble of greed.

"What's that? You're being evicted, ffoletuorl Sorry, old fellow, but we can't help you." Of course' there's a housing shortage in Hollywood. Actors are housekeeping In tlielr studio dressing rooms, and studios have had to buy Beverly Hills mansions to shack up out-of-town visitors. ' Houses are being sold, re-sold, and re-re-sold at terrific prices. The only ones not worried, It seems, are th e cartoon stars and Johnny nooTri Weissnmller. Mickey Mouse and the uc ' )altl rest will always have tlielr Inkwells, and the king of the jungle can always sleep In a tree house. SUSAN'S SAD PLIGHT Just to see what goes on, let's look In on a scene of domestic chaos—the home of red-haired Susan Hayward, her husband, Jess Barker, her year-old twin sons, a nurse, a maid, and a. mongrel dog, Up until a few days ago, life was beautiful. The Barkers wore renting a three-bedroom Bel Aiv home for $350 a moiun. Their year' lease was expiring, but the real estate agency said it would b e renewed. Then it happened. The owner came .home suddenly from Cnrmdn. They would have to move. Soon. Well, they started looking. They're still looking. But let Jess tell it: , '"Sine, we can buy a lot of those Spanish-type houses built in 1925 for $30,000 and up. They're worth maybe' $8000, and most of them are '/ broken-down wrecks. The real estate people all give' us the same w'lth this house.' Sure we can do 5 wonderful things — with anothft $10,000. • "We heard of a house near us In Bel Air. The price was 135,000 We went to see It, 'Hie' real estate man recognized Susan. The' price suddenly shot up to $55,000." CAN'T AFFORD S55.8W "And we just can't afford (65,000," Susan walled. "Sure, I've savrd a little money. U's all I've got. I've been saving It for a rainy day. T just can't see pulling it all Into'..a' hotsc. Especially now 1 when taxes are so high. Sure, I make good" money, but you should see those checks I write to the Treasury. Susan looked as if she were going to cry. jess looked as if he were, going to cry. The twins looked as If they were going to cry. We didn't tell them about a litlle man on Wilshlre Boulevard' who rented a five-bedroom Kome to an eastern family tile otfer day for only $250 a month, with a month's rent in advance in, caslv. We didn't have the heart to , fell' them, as the little man Immediate-,' ly disappeared with the $250 cash". Because, you see, he lia'd > 'no right to rent the house.

M. A. doesnl like old Hill S 1606 in the first pluce. What they r'ecotnmended was u major opera- ,(Ion to cut out Its heart. It the patient dies. It will apparently be all right with the A. M. A. The advice of competent medical authorities should alwnys be listened 1 to, and the A. M. A. group, un- de"r its president, Dr. R. L. Scn- .senich of South Bend, Iiid., arrived with n whole sheaf of prepared lever charts In its pill bags. But when Republican Senator Forrest C. Donnell of Missouri, who also doesn't like Bill S. 1606, asked Dr. Sensenich to sum up what was wrong, the best lie could do was come up with a list of symptoms something like this: First, said Dr. Sensenich, there was nothing in the bill which had anything to do with preventive medicine. The spectators in the Senate Education and Labor Committee operating-room, where Bill S. s laid out on the table to be opened up. gasped at that a little, because the whole idea of the bill is to find ways to provide more medical care for more people at less average cost. Furthermore, the voluntary health insurance plan which the A. M. A. recommends us a substitute would, naturally, provide less preventive medicine than u compulsory health insurance Han providing regular examination for everyone in the country. NO "FREE CHOICE" OF MIYSICIANS, A. M. A. SAYS Second. Dr. Sensenich said he thought Bill S. 1GOG would prevent u [re c choice of his physician by the patient. Well, the bill specifics there shall be free" Choice by both patient and I physician. Any patient would be [ fret' to 1 consult any doctor he chose.' Any doctor could lake or refuse any patient he chose, or could boycott national health insurance patients completely, remaining .1 private practice physician exclusively. Third, Dr. Sensenich claimed thai under national health plans, medical service would deteriorate. By regimentation of both pallents I and doctors, it would be standard- ! teed at low levels of quality, be- '• cause doctors would have lo treat : so many more patients. I Would It? The complaint of good I doctor's no»' is that they are so, overworked they can't give as much i attention to patients as they' should. Doctors with not enough practice can't make a good enough living to keep up v-ith advances in \helr profession. Spreading the work might Improve thp quality of the service. U's debatable. Next, it was claimed that national health Insurance would destroy the incentive of the physician, by putting (he government between the physician and his patient—bv making doctors/ civil servants. Only actual experience under Ihe plan is going to prove thai, li might work out the doctors would Hud they had more Incentive. If there were national health insurance, every doctor would know he would be paid lor his services. The doctor's embarrassment at having io collect bills am! dun deadbents would cml. and charity cases would be largely eliminated. Oi Scntenlch then claimed national health Insurance would tnul i,) resemble treatment of patients in clinics, and that too I physician who had the patience to ' restore the patient's confidence, he said, to effect cures. The fact is that the practice of medicine . has now become so [Socialized that no one doctor car." know It all. and the hope of better . medical care may come through '.often in clinics the patients didn't \ more clinics, not through less.
