It takes money to get those letters answer e<J. •» General Bradley, who shows a strain from 18 months' duty will the VA, was telling the committee that since Congress had voted a great many benefits for the ex- service world it should not he skimpy on appropriating money to the agency largely responsible foi seeing that veterans get these benefits. "We cannal," he told the committee, "hope'to escape the obligations to which we are already committed under the law. By the same token, these obligations make unavoidable the maintenance of a huge and expensive operating overhead in the Veterans Administration. "We shall cooperate glady and willingly in the reduction of the overhead wherever it is practical to do so. At some point; however, we are bound to reach the stage where Congress must determine whether economy clearly justifies a reduction in standards of service." Bradley then quoted a letter he had received two weeks previously from Dr. Karl Menninger, manager of the huge NP hospital in Topeka, Hans., and one of the country's most famous psychiatrists. The letter lamented the threaten- ened cutback in VA's medical ex• • CUP THIS AD! • • I STREET MB * • BUS OPEBATOBS I I WANTED ; • No Experience Necessary * Earn While You Learn • . • • Avg.

II went on l.o say that sonio of the excellent doctors recruited by the VA from private medicine were getting a little jumpy about their future. They had been persuaded to come to the VA, (he letter explained, because they were told tho VA's medical service was to be the j very best. They wanted to be • part of it, but jiow they were wondering if maybe the medical service in the VA was going to revert to "the type of medical care they used 10 have". That's what the letter said. Here's the kind of tiling that results: The law states that veterans with service-connected disabilities are entitled to care from private docs and hospitals with the VA paying the bill. Some members of congress say they have received reports "from the field" that fees paid to private docs and hospitals are too high. Cut 'em says Congress. The VA. in the person of Bradley, says yes, possibly in a few isolated instances these fees may be too high. Then it adds that the only way to keep the fees on an equitable basis is to send out investigators who can check on local situations. But investigators cost money! The VA will have to pay them for their investigating. And Congress wants to cut down on the monev VA spends. Already'the VA has had to order a stop to all traveling by VA docs. They've had to cut out ail overtime pay to their doctors, too, to keep within the spending limits set down ay Congress. It's beginning to scare some of .hese doctors, if Menninger's letter s any indication. If it scares them enough, if they think the lofty deals and ideas for "medical care second to none", brought to the VA by Bradley and Dr. Hawley, are going to strangle for lack of dough, they'll quit.

Editor's .Mail Box: The earless, short cut use of the abbreviation "Dr.". in its too frequent misapplication to the numerous titles or degrees of many individuals, as a distinguishing mark of their profession, seems to be an unwarrantable, discreditable custom.
