April 25—M'I—Gen Lucius D.

The bill calls for payroll-tax insurance to provide medical, hospital and dental care for about 120.000.000 Americans at a sponsor- estimated cost of around $0.000,000,000 a year. The administration measure also would put into effect al! the other i phases of Mr. Truman's program. ' Those include federal giants for medical education, hospital construction, public health services alid research. The bill also authorizes an experimental program of federal aid to farmers' health cooperatives. Not a single Republican's name was on the sponsors list accompanying the bill.
