COURIER NEWS Doctors Score Tree Medicine' AMA OppoMt R«d Craw' Plan for Nationwide Blood Bank CHICAGO, June 23. —(UP)— A resolution before the American Medical Association yesterday held thai the philosophy of provfdiiiK free medical service to all, "v,-Ith<5ut re- jard" to their ability to pay, is "un- American." The resolution waj introduced at the AMA's annual convention by Dr. T. J. Plnkerton, Honolulu delegate. Pinkerton said the resolution was offered in opposition to a pro- .posil for a free, nationwide Red Cross block bank. Pinkerton presented the resolution to the AMA house of delegates, which took it under conslderatlojj at a closed session. The AMA last year approved "In principal" the Red Cross plan of setting up free blood banks throughput the country. But the AMA aslied the Red Cross not to set up a blood bank until the local medical sociely in the region Involved had approved the idea. Plan I» Expensive Pinkerlon's resolution charged that the Red Cross "Is Invading,, uninvited, the locale of fully established blood banks."He asserted that the Red Cross plan would cost about $10.0CO,000 a year, while blood banks set up by the medical profession Itself would cost only a fraction of that amount. His resolution added that the Red Cross plan is "opposed to the principle that, It Is the responsibility of the Individual to assume obligation for medical expenses just as for other living expenses." Doctors attending the convention, largest in the AMA's history, yesterday witnessed two operations by television. One was a skin graft and the other a knee operation. It was the first time a surgical operation «ver had been televised. WEDNESDAY, JUNE Evangelistic Team With the Courts Chancery Georgia M. Driver v». Abner Driver, suit for divorce.
