(DIV. OF HEUBLEIN), HARTFORD. CONN TRAINING IN MEDICAL FIELDS Junior College Plan to adequately meet the demand? These are only a few of the multitude of questions being asked today by doctors, hospitals, welfare agencies and citizens over 65 years of age, Dr. Frederick J. Brady, county health director, said yesterday. ADDRESSING the Conquistador Kiwanis Club at the Redwood Gay -Nineties res'taurant, Brady v said he "cannot conceive of socialized medicine in this country. . "But, in Title 19 of the new Medicare act there are 'little hookers' in the law, giving to government authority that is not clearly defined," he said. "As of now, we cannot predict whal will follow--or just how the law will be interpreted." Brady said the new act "is voluminous, consisting of 132 pages of fine print, with marginal notes referring back to this point and that point." "The act goes into effect July 1," he said, "and that does not leave much time to break it down and determine exactly what it means." PROBLEMS WILL arise, he said, because "there are lots of little gimmicks" in the law. He pointed out: -- "The . patient has 'free' choice of the hospital. But suppose his doctor works only in another hospital? As of now, the doctor has the right to turn down a patient. Will this 'freedom' for both patient and doctor continue? --"The law allows for 'supplies' that are needed for home lursing, home physical therapy, and rehabilitation therapy. Does his mean free cotton -- or very expensive equipment? Does it cover r e n t a l equipment?" Brady added: "Another difficulty wEl come in the search for.rnembers of each hospital's utilization committee,' as provided by the new Medicare act. "According to the law, hospitals must set up this committee of doctors to determine if their colleagues are keeping patients too long or needlessly. I know that I wouldn't want to serve on this committee." Pima County's junior college could have a strong emphasis on training in medical fields since Tucson might be regarded "as a regional health center." Jacob Fruchthendler. JC planning and development committee chairman, suggested the aossibility of a talk yesterday. He made a progress report to Tucson Industry Association at the Sands Motor Hotel. There has been no determination yet as to the character of a junior college h e r e , Fruchthendler emphasized. He only suggested the schooling of medical technicians as a possibility. There, may be a need for such training, the speaker explained, Mobile English Mice BRADMORE, England -UPI --A motorist who was trying to learn why his car wouldn't start found mice in the heating system. in view of the University of Arizona College of Medicine. He suggested that the federal Medicare program also means more medical aides will be needed. A report on the feasibility of junior college here and how o get it should be ready by July. Fruchthendler said the time- able calls for having a junior college in operation by late 1968 or early 1969. Two votes--one on formation of a countywide 'unior college district and the other on issuing bonds for construction--must be favorable before a JC is a reality.
