The i m b a l a n c e is thought to contribute both to escalating health costs and to have a negative imp a c t on the quality of care. The surgeon surplus, for example, is often cited as one of the reasons so m a n y unnecessary operations are performed with consequent needless injury and death. As outlined to reporters at a news conference here, the official bodies that set the n u m b e r of r e c e n t medical graduates who ''·I n Since 1910 ®m *jn would be asked, beginning in July 1977, to freeze the number of entrants at the July 1975 level, with the exception of three specialties whose numbers they would e n c o u r a g e to increase. These three specialties are those that arc in nota- b l y s h o r t s u p p l y : Pediatricians, doctors certified in internal medicine, and family or general practitioners. The Institute of Medicine proposal also calls for legislation that would hare the Department of Health Education and Welfare set up a permanent commission to determine the appropriate n u m b e r of training positions in each medical specialty after the voluntary rationing effort had got under way.

W*S?W* t *V\R V* 3 . w ,nQ^ * WASHINGTON - Glenn Anderson, D-Calif., has praised the the proposal by Col. Frank Borman, president of Eastern Airlines, which calls for a c o n s o r t i u m of a i r l i n e companies pledged to purchase a large number of a certain future generation, yet-to-be-developed aircraft. "The long-term interests of the t r a v e l i n g public, the airlines, the a i r c r a f t manufacturers, and' the residents around the nation's airports would be well served by this innovative p r o p o s a l designed to give a shot in the arm to the aviation industry," Anderson, chairman of the aviation subcommittee, said. " B y c o n s o l i d a t i n g forces, our country can maintain our dominance in aviation, and can produce a new generation aircraft' t h a t could reduce operating costs by an estimated 35 per cent, reduce e n e r g y consumption by some 50 per cent, and reduce noise by a consider- a b l e amount," he continued. "Due to the economic recession, the a i r l i n e i n d u s t r y h a s s u f f e r e d record losses, drying up s o u r c e s of l o a n s , and Ihreatening the future viability of several airlines. And due to this bleak economic picture, the airlines have drastically reduced the demand for new air- c r a f t , t h u s causing economic hardships in the a i r c r a f t manufacturing industry. As a result, the air-frame companies, prim a r i l y McDonnell-Douglas, Boeing and Lockheed, are not actively developing a new g e n e r a t i o n airplane t h a t is q u i e t , e n e r g y - e f f i c i e n t , a n d suited to the particular needs of the airlines," he said. "WHILE THE new widebodies -- Lockheed Tristar (L1011), the Boeing 747, and the McDonnell- Douglas DC10 -- are mag- n i f i c e n t machines, a r e e x c e l l e n t for long-haul markets, and are replac- * ing the older aircraft, such" as (he B707 and DCS, they are not economical in trie ·' short-haul markets. The'" airlines need a 175- to 200- capacity aircraft which.' is' "· versatile and thus, ecrt-- 1 nomical in the short-haul and long-haul markets. 1 -' Colonel Herman's proposal-; would spur the develop-.; ment of such an aircraft' 1 at the lowest practical-'' cost," Anderson contih'-*" ued. "'." 7 Under the plan devised by Borman, the airlines.' 1 would collectively develop''' the specifications and the'" type and style of aircraft'' necessary to theiropera-"' tions, and the airline's-1 . 1 would pledge to purchase':' a number of these aircraft ··" when it is available --' ·' thus, assuring the mariil-'-'" facturer of a market. The"manufacturers would then '' develop a "prototype" and-··' bid on the contract. " · '"·'" · Borman said such an aircraft could be available... by the mid-1980's. . , . . , Phone company '··'. executive named \?\ Charles A.
