JLabor secretary faces critical negotiations New York News NEW YORK - A blue- ribbon commission said here t h a t changes are needed in the training and distribution of American physicians lo b r i n g adequate health care lo all Americans. The 1 4 - m e m b e r Commission on Physicians for the future, sponsored by the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation, said the major problems in medical care include a shortage of primary care physicians and' geographical maldistribu- tion of doctors that leaves rural areas and city slums short of physicians. To help solve the problems, the g r o u p recommended creation of a new private a g e n c y , the Nat i o n a l C o m m i s s i o n on Medical Education, Manpower and Services to fill a g a p . b y providing nonpartisan analyses of medical care problems to both federal and private agencies in (he field. Dr. John Z. Bowers, president of the M a c y Foundation, said the commission would be "the last hope of voluntarism" lo p r e v e n t complete dominance of health care by "the f e d e r a l e s t a b l i s h - ment." Bowers said a meeting will be held in the next month or two with representatives of "eight or 10" h e a l t h - o r i e n t e d f o u n d a - t i o n s to r a i s e the estimated $750,000 annually needed to establish the proposed commission. The study group sponsored by the Macy Foundation was headed by Dale R R. Corson, president of Cornell University. Us report, based on a year-long study, was presented lo reporters at the Cornell Club. A m o n g the problems cited by the report were these: Some 14,000 "qualified" applicants for American medical schools are turned away each year for lack of space. At the same time, there has been a sharp incrrase in the number of foreign-trained physicians practicing in OILS country. While the nation's overall ratio of physicians lo population seems favorable, distribution of doctors is so uneven that 45 million Americans l i v e in areas where health care d e l i v e r y s y s t e m s a r e RABB'S QUALITY SHOES -WE SPECIALIZE- In Extra Narrow to Extra Wide Widths | and Extra Sniall to Extra Large Sizes Just in time for SPRING Red Cross Socialites* Gobbles* CHO1CL SFUCTCN FC» CPtSS.

Usery, the n|w Secretary of Labor, to tree his skills as-a mediator in a half-dozen critical libor-managementncgoti- ajions. SBetwccn March 31 and raid-September, contracts covering 2.2 million work- efs e x p i r e in intercity l a c k i n g , construction, rVibber, electrical cqulp- njcnt, meat packing and autos. »A prolonged strike in ofce of more of those indus- ttjes could weaken the economic recovery, jeopardize further reductions ID u n e m p l o y m e n t and diminish the election pros- njpcts of t h e - Republican presidential c a n d i d a t e . However, nonpartisan exp- -· : -'-'\ind management okesmcn say 197S docs jt look like a year of long Tikes. j-Usery's task Is to pre- Jnt long strikes, but with- ut encouraging contract .^ttlcmcnts that would un- Sfeccssarily be ·Jiflalionary. T h a t t h i s 's settlements will be Bflalionary to some cx- is r e g a r d e d as Hcvilablc. The a d r n i n i s _ ration 1 seeks lo minimize Wage increases as part.of it£ campaign to shrink the jnflation rate over several v^ars. , In.light of the 7 per cent llsc in consumer prices Jasl year and the 12 per cent rise in 1974,. govern- m e n t economists figure that in 1976 contracts the big unions wi^ get first- £car improvements in wages of roughly 10 per cent. '· Even the brisk gains in productivity that occur In a'business upswing are unlikely to reach 10 per cent, economists say, and so the new contracts arc likely to add to costs and to push up prices. . ' O f f i c i a l l y , the Ford administration disavows wage and price guidelines. H o w e v e r , U s e r y ami others seem lo be indicating what (hey consider acceptable and what excessive. "1 am in agreement w i t h the consensus of economists," the Secre; {ary told the Senate Budg- 'cl Committee on Dec. 25, Ithat pay increases in the §rst year ol new contracts pcgotiated in major bargaining units this yeaiywill fall in the 9-to-10-per cent range." Such a statement is not a guideline, but is plainly m e a n t to influence the expectations of labor and exert a moderating effect on union wage goals. With price inflation -as measured by the wholesale and consumer price indexes -- slowing, administration economists hope that keeping the new contracts within the 10 per cent range will help to hold down the rate of price rises in 1977. On the other hand, "If w a g e s e t e l e m e n l s in major industries exceed those of 1975 -- when wage and benefit increases for the · f i r s t y e a r already averaged around I I per cent -- a new explosion of wages, costs and prices may be touched off," according to A r t h u r F. Burns, chairman of the Federal Reserve Board. That Usery will be Involved in the key negotiations is expected by his associates and industrial- relations experts, This expectation arises because before becoming secretary on Feb. 10, he spent four years as assistant secretary of Labor for labor-management relations and three years as director of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service. As director, he also acquired the additional title of special assistant to the President to strengthen his prestige and influence as a mediator. Usery kept that title when he resigned as director, an indication that the White House still regards him as the President's No. 1 labor-management trouble-shooter.
