MONDAY, AimiL 25, BLYTHKVTI..LB (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THREE THE NATION TODAY National Health Program Heads For Much in Way of Debate Witfi Little Prospect of Early Action ™ By James Marlow WASHINGTON, April 25. IJl'i— At this moment In American l)lslor> a national health program seems little more Ulan something for debute Congress is unlikely to pass such a program Uiis session, even thoiiel President Trutnan dumped it iti Congress' lap once more in ft spccia ^romoted at U of A It's Spring at the Zoo, But Stubborn Animals Are Giving Cupid a Bad Time message yesterday. f He's been urging such a program 1 for years anil lie watits it paid for out of money taken from people's pay. In other words, a Lax. Bui his opponents call that compulsory health insurance and they're against compulsion, they say. They even call it socialism, Some of them suggest, Instead, various programs in which the federal government would pay money to the stales to help them do more medically. That money, of course, would come out of taxes, too, althou-h it vroudn'l be a direct tax lor medical care. Mr, Truman and his supporters say the govcrnment-aid-to-the states (eda doesn't solve the health problem. And that, in a nutshell, is wher the argument stands aiul where i is likely to stand the rest of th session of Congress. Room for Argument This argument has been going o: ^L->r years now and the printc material giving both sides— matei ial you can pick up around th capital — makes a big armful no\ A bill carrying out- the ideas Mr. Truman and his advisors \va offered early in this session b Senator Murray, Montana Demo crat, and others.

"Old-age assistance, on the other hand, is paid to people who are in need. The payments vary with the need for each applicant. Unemployment compensation provides workers with some income when they So right there Is the evidence that the thinking in the Senate is split wide open. But this week a new bill—a kind of cover-all bill that wraps up all the ideas Mr. Truman expressed in his message Friday—probably will be introduced in the Senate. This bill would gather together a number ot ideas about a health program that have been offered in Congress separately or linked together. New Bill Outlined The new bill will take the place of the oue offered earlier by Scn- .^tor Murray. In his message Mr. ,^1'Truman outlined this kind of program: 1. A nation - wide compulsory health insurance system, as described above, paid tor out ot taxes 2, Federal help for medical schools. 3. More federal aid for building hospitals and other things needed for medical care. 4. More federal help with monej to the state and local governments for preventing and controlling dis ease, and other health steps. How nnicii would it cost? Mr Trumn didn't say. Cost of the Mur- are out a job. The employers. . this stale pays Hie full cost of the prograol." Bradford slieResled who has a question that anyone about social security may secure the needed information from his olticc in Joncs- boro. Next to water, whirl ts the greatest natural force In the process ol erosion. .ay program—which was until now Mr. Truman's program—has been stimated at 55,000,000,000 a year or nore. Tlie Taft program would cost the government, some of its supporters say, around $2,000,000,000 for a live year period. Slither plan, or any plan, will cost money. So there are a couple of questions connected with any plan offered: cost? Will it the nation's health? Although the arguments have beer batted around for years now. there'll be plenty more of them. But little if anything will be done about the problem in the near future.
